Opposition Welcomes Dunphy Inquiry, Calls for Immediate Release of ASIRT and RCMP Reports


Paul Davis, Leader of the Official Opposition, said, "The Official Opposition‎ welcomes the judicial inquiry into the circumstances of the tragic death of Donald Dunphy, and it is now incumbent to immediately release the reports of the RCMP and the Alberta Serious Incident Response Team (ASIRT), which have been withheld."


"The release of these reports is vital for a complete public inquiry into this tragedy. They ought to be placed in the public domain so all the people have all the facts that have already been ascertained and can ask the questions that need to be asked," he said. “The reports should have been reviewed by the Attorney General to inform the terms of reference released today. They contain information that the public does not yet have. There is no reason to withhold these reports.”


"Our administration stated that we would make the decision on a judicial inquiry once the police investigation had been completed. Now that the police and ASIRT have issued their reports, those reports must be released so the people have a clear view of what they found."
