The provincial and federal governments will present an independent review of the April killings in Nova Scotia on Thursday afternoon.
Canada’s Public Safety Minister Bill Blair and Nova Scotia Justice Minister Mark Furey will present the details of this review at a press conference scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. (ADT).
Twenty-two people were killed by gunfire on April 18 and 19. For nearly 13 hours and traveling approximately 150 km from Portapique to Enfield, the gunman in police disguise shot down neighbors and people he did not know and set houses on fire. The police caught up with him and shot him dead in Enfield.
About 300 people marched on Wednesday to demand a public inquiry into the matter. The rally was organized by the families of the victims to protest the slowness of the establishment of such an investigation.
