Senator and Green MPs Call for Parliamentary Study on Wellness Checks

At a news conference on Parliament Hill, Senator Kim Pate joins Green Party parliamentary leader Elizabeth May and Green MP Jenica Atwin to call for a parliamentary examination of police practices surrounding wellness checks. The call for a study comes in light of a number of recent incidents in which individuals have died in encounters with police after officers were called upon to conduct wellness checks on them.
