Indigenous woman killed by Edmundston, N.B., police during wellness check


A 26-year-old Indigenous woman from British Columbia was fatally shot by a police officer she allegedly threatened during a wellness check in a northwestern New Brunswick city early Thursday.

Family of Chantel Moore say she had recently moved east from British Columbia to live near her mother and daughter.

Her death came at a time of heightened attention on police actions and practices in the United States and Canada following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
