Opinion 250

Prince George, B.C. - The Chair of the Commission for Public Complaints Against the RCMP, Paul E. Kennedy, will release his final report on the RCMP’s use of tasers (conducted energy weapons) later this morning.

The final report comes six months after an interim report was delivered to Minister of Public Safety, Stockwell Day.

In that interim report, the Chair of the Commission for Complaints against the RCMP made 10 recommendations for immediate implementation including a call for the use of tasers to be restricted to use only in situations where an individual is behaving in a manner classed as combative, or poses a threat of death or grievous harm to the officer, themselves or the general public.
