The provinces' chief coroner has called a joint inquest into the deaths of seven Aboriginal teens who were attending school in Thunder Bay. 

It's an expansion of the inquest involving Poplar Hill First Nation 15-year-old Reggie Bushie, who was found in the McIntyre River in 2007.

Bushie's pre-inquest hearing has been delayed several times. 

Jordan Wabaase, who was also 15 years old, went missing last year and is also part of the inquest.

Dr. Andrew McCallum, the Chief Coroner for Ontario, announced that a joint inquest will be held into the deaths of:
• Jethro Anderson of Kasabonika Lake First Nation, who died on or about November 11, 2000 at age 15;
• Reggie Bushie of Poplar Hill First Nation, who died on or about November 1, 2007 at age 15;
• Robyn Harper of Keewaywin First Nation, who died on January 13, 2007 at age 19;
• Kyle Morrisseau of Keewaywin First Nation, who died on or about November 10, 2009 at age 17;
• Paul Panacheese of Mishkeegogamang First Nation, who died on November 11, 2006 at age 21;
• Curran Strang of Pikangikum First Nation, who died on or about September 26, 2005 at age 18; and
