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.
