Inquest report slams policing failures on Manitoba First Nation


An inquest report into the death of a man in a northern Manitoba First Nation holding cell provides a damning list of failures and " very concerning" practices that need to be changed.

Brian McPherson, 44, died in the early morning hours of Aug. 27, 2011, while in custody at the Garden Hill band constable holding cells. Though his cause of death was found to be sudden heart failure, an inquest is mandatory when anyone dies in custody to determine what can be done to prevent similar deaths in the future.
