Government review of jury recommendations underway

A spokesperson from the Ministry of Justice says the government wants to implement recommendations made by jury members in the Shauna Wolf Inquest “as soon as possible.”

On Thursday, the ministry officially released all 17 recommendations made by jury members, nine of which were specifically directed at the Ministry of Corrections and Policing.

Government officials got their first look at the list on Thursday, with Ministry of Justice spokesperson Drew Wilby saying the review process would begin in the coming weeks.

“We will, in the not too distant future, figure out how we’re going to respond to (the recommendations), what work can be done from the provincial level here, and what work needs to be done at the local level up at Pine Grove,” Wilby explained. “Those discussions will begin here within the next couple of weeks for sure.”
