The Missing and Murdered Women blog has a post about Robyn Gervais and the Pickton Inquiry. From the post:
Robyn Gervais issued a brief statement announcing her withdrawal from the hearings, and said she would explain her reasons in more detail in front of commissioner Wally Oppal on Tuesday morning. Her statement cited delays in calling aboriginal witnesses, an apparent lack of panels on aboriginal issues and the focus on police witnesses. She also said she hadn’t received support from the aboriginal community.
“This inquiry is fundamentally about missing and murdered women, a disproportionate number of whom were aboriginal,” said Gervais, who is Metis and previously represented the Carrier Sekani Tribal Council. “As I leave, I regret that I could not find a way to bring the voices of the missing and murdered aboriginal women before the commissioner.”


SPOC has a bad-clients list online – although it looks to be specific to the 416 area code. I don’t know if POWER maintains a bad-clients list for the Ottawa-Gatineau/Champlain region, or if it’s possible for them to do so. I’ll have to drop them a note and ask.
