Police shooting update

A Queen’s Bench justice has reserved a decision on whether to reverse a lower
court judge’s decision not to try two Bathurst police officers on
manslaughter charges.

Constables Patrick Bulger and Mathieu Boudreau were charged with manslaughter
in the death of Tracadie businessman Michel Vienneau at the Bathurst train
station. But a provincial court judge decided there wasn’t enough evidence to
go to trial after a preliminary inquiry. The Crown appealed saying the judge
erred.

Justice Tracey DeWare heard arguments yesterday and has reserved a decision
until September 25th.
