Families of men who died in RCMP custody still searching for answers

In the last three years, there have been three deaths in custody of Indigenous men in the northern town of Prince George, British Columbia.

Lily Speed-Namox and her mother Tracey Speed search for answers and seek justice for Lily’s father, Dale Culver, a 35-year-old Wet’suwet’en and Gitxsan man who died during an RCMP arrest in July 2017.

A report from the Independent Investigation Office of BC (IIO), the police watchdog, says RCMP in Prince George were responding to a call of someone casing vehicles.

Culver fled on a bicycle, a struggle ensued, and pepper spray was used while multiple officers were apprehending him. Culver was having difficulty breathing, police called for medical assistance but he died shortly after.
