Editorial: Alain Magloire, Montreal police and mental health

The coroner’s report into the shooting death of Alain Magloire by Montreal police says officers should be better trained and equipped to deal with the mentally ill. No question, they should.

The 41-year-old father of two, who suffered from schizophrenia and was homeless, was shot four times as he raised a hammer to an officer who had fallen to the ground after a confrontation near the Berri St. bus terminal two years ago.
