Commons Committee Probe Of Taser Use and Dziekanski Death BEHIND CLOSED DOORS!?
The House of Commons Committee on Public Safety and National Security is holding two days of meetings at Vancouver International Airport, where Robert Dziekanski died after RCMP stunned him with a Taser and knelt on his neck last October.
The public safety committee is studying the growing use of Tasers in Canada, where more than 6,800 officers are armed with the stun guns, and investigating the events surrounding Dziekanski's death. A committee report of these secret meetings will be provided to the House of Commons at some future time.
Committee member and Liberal public safety critic Ujjal Dosanjh told CBC News he was surprised to learn the briefings would not be open to the public.
