Twenty years after two Innu men died in mysterious circumstances while fishing on the Moisie River, the Quebec government appears ready to finally hold a public inquiry into the suspicious deaths.
Quebec had promised to hold an inquiry last fall, but put the idea on hold until recently. The Innu say the police are covering up what could be murder. The families of Moise Regis, 26, and Achille Voilant, 20, have amassed evidence that suggests the men were killed in a dispute with game wardens trying to stop them from fishing. When the bodies washed up, they had bruises and didn’t show signs of the bloating associated with drowning.
