Stevenson family lawyer Cameron Ward has written the Attorney General and the Solicitor General requesting a public inquiry to investigate all aspects of the fatal police shooting of Thomas Evon Stevenson on December 7, 2002. Last week, a Coroner’s Inquest classified the death as a homicide and recommended that independent investigations should replace the present process whereby the police investigate themselves.
