Senator calls for inquiry into what led to wrongful conviction of two women for same Alberta murder


January 20, 2017

A public inquiry should be called to investigate how two women were wrongfully convicted of the same southern Alberta murder, says Sen. Kim Pate.

Pate, the former head of the Canadian Association of Elizabeth Fry Societies, said an inquiry should probe the actions of the Medicine Hat, Alta., police and the local Crown prosecutor who pushed the murder case against Connie Oakes, a Cree woman from Nekaneet First Nation, and Wendy Scott, a woman with an IQ of 50.
