Taser inquiry report held off until spring

Geez Messrs. Vertlieb and Braidwood, I would meticulously proofread and edit your report in about a WEEK - for FREE - just to see it released before spring! I do hope you're not waiting for the March 3rd return of our prorogued government before releasing this report, because I`ll be honest with you, gentlemen: they're just not that into it.

VANCOUVER — The Braidwood inquiry report dealing with the fatal police incident involving a Polish immigrant at Vancouver's airport two years ago won't be sent to the attorney general until April or May, officials confirmed Tuesday.

Art Vertlieb, the lawyer for the Braidwood inquiry, said Commissioner Thomas Braidwood expects to finish writing his report at the end of January but it will take another three months to proofread and edit before it is sent to the printers.

The B.C. Court of Appeal ruled last month that Braidwood, a retired appeal court judge, has the authority to find misconduct against the four RCMP officers involved in the death of Robert Dziekanski, 40, who died on the floor at Vancouver International Airport after 1:30 a.m. on Oct. 14, 2007. The officers used their Tasers to subdue him.
