TORONTO – The family of a former chief of an Ontario First Nation plagued by a mercury-contaminated river is calling for an inquest into his death.

Relatives of Steve Fobister Sr., the former chief of the Grassy Narrows First Nation who died this month, say the probe would prove his death was a result of long-term mercury poisoning.

They are also calling on both Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Ontario's health minister to acknowledge that Fobister was poisoned by mercury.
