Taser International now reporting Canadian police news

As if they weren't deeply entrenched enough within certain Canadian circles, it seems American stun gun manufacturer Taser International is now in the business of reporting Canadian police news for us too!

Winnipeg police shoot man dead after taser fails


Or that there has only been forty-two put to death this year for capitol crimes but Fifty-one people have died in taser incidents so far in only the last eight months of this same year ?

I can't find stats on taser incidents for the first four months of this year.
