The province has formally announced plans for an inquest into the shooting death of Steve Mesic.
No date or location has been set, but the inquest will examine the events surrounding Mesic’s death, and the jury may make recommendations aimed at preventing similar tragedies.
The inquest is mandatory under the Ontario Coroner’s Act.
The 45-year-old Mesic was shot and killed by Hamilton Police officers during a confrontation on June 7th.
The Special Investigations Unit recently released its findings, determining no wrongdoing on the part of the officers who were involved.
Dr. Jack Stanborough, a regional coroner, will preside over the inquest.
