This public inquiry is investigating the death of Mr. Frank Paul, a 47 year-old homeless Mi’kmaq man who died in an alley after being left there by police in December 1998. The final phase of the Frank Paul inquiry has examined the response of the Criminal Justice Branch of the Ministry of Attorney General to the death of Frank Paul. The BCCLA has proposed that in order to maintain public confidence in the criminal justice system, the Commission should recommend a new approach for assessing whether charges should be laid in cases in which the police are involved or implicated.
