Ottawa police officer's manslaughter trial resumes as disclosure issues hold potentially 'dire' impact

Lawyers for Const. Daniel Montsion were huddled in their Elgin Street offices on Super Bowl Sunday, the day before the officer’s high-profile manslaughter and assault trial was set to begin, when the incoming email pinged from the Crown attorney’s office.

New evidence had just been turned over by the Special Investigations Unit, which charged Montsion in the July 24, 2016, death of Abdirahman Abdi. It was a two-minute video excerpt taken from CCTV footage of the arrest at 55 Hilda St., enhanced and rendered in slow motion.
