Public wanted ‘full, comprehensive’ inquiry into shooting, says Nova Scotia senator

Many not satisfied with ‘review’ instead of public inquiry of N.S. shooting
WATCH: Some Nova Scotians say a ‘review’ of what happened during the N.S. shooting, announced Thursday, does not guarantee answers the families and residents are looking for.

Anger and dissatisfaction are what many Nova Scotians are feeling after the announcement of an “independent review” into the shooting spree in April that killed 22 people in Nova Scotia.

One of those who are unhappy with the provincial and federal government’s decision is Senator Mary Coyle.

“So the governments have already heard what the public wants already and this is what they came up with.”

The family of the victims, their supporters, academics and independent legal experts have all said they are disappointed by the choice of independent review.
