VANCOUVER -- The Kamloops, B.C. mother of a Polish man who died after being shot with an RCMP Taser at Vancouver International Airport will finally see her son's body. Zofia Cisowski hasn't been allowed to see Robert Dziekanski since he died on Oct. 14 after being shot with a Taser during a confrontation with police. But, with a priest by her side today, she'll hold a private memorial ceremony to say farewell to the 40-year-old man who was immigrating to Canada to live with her. After the service, Dziekanski's remains will be cremated and eventually returned to Poland where the rest of his family is buried. There will also be a public celebration of his life in Kamloops sometime next week. An investigation into the Taser incident continues, and a cause of death has not yet been released.
