Family of Montreal man shot by SPVM struggled to pay legal fees, while city covered nearly $200K for officers

The City of Montreal spent $190,601 on lawyers representing police officers at the coroner's inquest looking into the fatal shooting of Pierre Coriolan, while his family received only $5,000 to cover their legal fees, a civil rights group has found.

The stark contrast, advocates say, illustrates and reinforces inequalities in Quebec's justice system.
