The inquest, originally scheduled for last November, will examine the circumstances surrounding the August 2009 death of the 52-year-old woman. The inquest will be held in Iqaluit.
Michael died in an Ottawa hospital from injuries she sustained falling down the stairs of Iqaluit's Nova Inn. Intoxicated, she was taken to the Qikiqtani General Hospital where she was arrested for causing a disturbance, the RCMP said at the time. The Mounties had added after Michael sobered up at the Iqaluit detachment, police were told there was no room for her at the hospital.
Later, the RCMP noticed she was in distress and called an ambulance. Michael was taken back to the hospital then medevaced to Ottawa where she died five days later.
