Green Party of Canada called for a Taser Moratorium in response to the Death

The Green Party is calling for an immediate moratorium on the use of Tasers in Canada pending a full investigation to determine whether the controversial electroshock weapons are safe.”Too many people are dying in Taser-related incidents,” said Green Party leader Elizabeth May. “If the weapon itself is not to blame, then it must be the way it is being used. We need to find out whether tasers can be used safely and, if not, they must be banned throughout Canada.”If they are safe, we must ensure that those who carry them receive proper training so that what happened to Robert Dziekanski never happens again.”

Mr. Dziekanski, a Polish national, died at the Vancouver Airport last month after being tasered by RCMP officers. Amateur video of the incident shows that the four officers made little attempt to subdue the agitated man before shooting him with the Taser.

Ms. May supported calls for the appointment of a special prosecutor to conduct a full and independent investigation of the circumstances surrounding Dziekanski’s death.
