The Commissioner of the RCMP said she will soon be reviewing an independent report into the investigative practices of Mounties in the Colten Boushie death.
Brenda Lucki said she expects the report December 4, and will review it over the weekend.
“I have been told, I will have that report on my desk on December 4, and I will work through the weekend to get through it,” Lucki told the Standing Committee on Public Safety and National Security Wednesday.
Lucki said the report will then be returned to the Civilian Review and Complaints Commission for them to release.
Boushie was shot and killed in August 2016 on Gerald Stanley’s Biggar-area farm Stanley was found not guilty at trial.
Members of Boushie’s family initially launched the complaint in March 2018 after they felt the actions of the RCMP officers portrayed them as suspects and believed it was inappropriate how officers informed Debbie Baptiste on her son’s death and comes after the RCMP in 2017 cleared officers of any wrong doing.
The report and the RCMP’s response were both due to be made public this summer.
In early November, Prime Minister Trudeau expressed frustrations on the progress of the report. “On a few different occasions, I was able to sit down with the family of Colton Boushie. And I assured them that we would get them answers on what happened. We are all awaiting this report. And I have asked Minister Blair to follow up on where this report is at and how quickly it can be released,” said Trudeau.
