Nunavut wants to stop relying on other police forces to investigate RCMP shootings

Nunavut is preparing legislation to create a civilian police review agency, after a recent investigation of a shooting death of an Inuk man released almost no information about what happened.

"We are actively discussing partnerships with civilian lead investigative bodies and will soon bring forward the legislative changes required to ensure a civilian body has full statutory authority to conduct investigations in the territory," Nunavut Justice Minister Jeannie Ehaloak said in an email.

Ehaloak, who has said before that she supports civilian reviews, made the promise after the Ottawa Police Service released results of an investigation into the shooting death of Attachie Ashoona in Kinngait, Nunavut, on Feb. 27.
