MONTREAL - The man studying the use of Tasers and other stun guns said he won't make any recommendations about the use of the weapons until 2009. Steve Palmer, the executive director of the Canadian Police Research Centre, said his report will be submitted for review by independent peers. That is why it will take so long, the force made public today.

Palmer was mandated by the Canadian Association of Police Chiefs to conduct the study, and he was expected to present an interim report at the association's annual meeting, being held in Montreal this week. Palmer met with media this morning, though only to answer questions about the scope and the methodology of his report.
