Taser Planning to Sue Over BC Braidwood Commission Inquiry
Taser International is planning to sue over the results of an inquiry into how British Columbia police use stun guns and tasers.
The BC inquiry was launched after the death of Robert Dziekanski, a polish immigrant who died at Vancouver International Airport after being hit multiple times by an RCMP taser.
The ruling resulted in drastically reducing the use of tasers by law enforcement in a number of Canadian provinces.
"Taser International intends to file an application for judicial review in the Supreme Court of British Columbia related to the Braidwood Commission," said Peter Holran, the vice-president of public relations and government affairs for the company.
Taser won't make any further comment beyond the contents of the filing, he said.
