Virtual proceeding day to be held on October 27 to table additional documents.

Since public proceedings concluded late last month, we have turned to preparing the Commission’s final report, which will be shared publicly by March 31, 2023. We are focused on reflecting upon what we have learned as part of our independent investigation and public proceedings. Our goal is to deliver a final report that is both rigorous and comprehensive, sharing findings of what happened and recommendations that are clear and implementable.

Although public proceedings adjourned in September, the Commission will hold a brief virtual proceeding on October 27, 2022 to mark additional documents as exhibits.

The additional exhibits will include supporting material for public proceedings that were not previously marked, interview transcripts, Commission correspondence for the public record, and documents produced to the Commission after the completion of public proceedings. Included in those documents are partial audio recordings that the Commission received this week of the April 28, 2020 teleconference meeting with the RCMP Commissioner and H Division personnel. Given the anticipated public interest in those recordings, we have posted them to our website in advance of marking them as exhibits. They are available in our Source Materials library, (COMM0065707, COMM0065708 and COMM0065709) along with transcripts prepared by the RCMP.

Interested Participants and members of the public will be able to watch the virtual proceeding, beginning at 11:00 am Atlantic, on the Commission’s website. We expect the proceedings to take no more than an hour. As always, the proceedings video will be available online. Once marked as exhibits, the additional documents will also be available for review on the website.

Thank you again for your continuing engagement in the Commission’s work—and please keep up the many ongoing discussions about different aspects of community safety. As we have said many times, community safety is a shared responsibility and a shared opportunity. It will take many people working across our public institutions, workplaces and communities to ensure the coming recommendations are implemented. We appreciate your shared commitment to making our communities safer.

As always, pathways to mental health, wellness and other supports are available if you or a loved one need them.
