Riley Fairholm’s mother, Tracy Wing, is celebrating a win in the case of her son’s death: Quebec’s police watchdog, Bureau des enquêtes indépendantes (BEI), admitting they made a mistake.
“For them to make a correction… It’s pretty big,” Wing said.
On Monday, the BEI published a correction to the initial statement on the case of the fatal shooting by police of the 17 year-old.
“He was given first aid” the correction said.
BEI spokesperson Esther Tremblay told Global News it was a transcript mistake.
