Brother hopes for 'truth, justice' at First Nations student deaths inquest

 


Head bowed and sniffling, Ricki Strang testified at an inquest this past week about the night he went out drinking with his little brother, passed out, and woke up in the river where his brother's body was later found.

His story is part of an inquest into the deaths of seven First Nations students in Thunder Bay, Ont. Strang's brother Reggie Bushie, died in 2007. (The pair have the same parents, but use the last names of family members who raised them).
