The Wagmatcook Band Council describes it as the final step in the chain of events that followed the fatal shooting of John Simon.

Today, the RCMP announced they have reached a  settlement with Simon's widow and his mother.

The family sued for loss of financial support, loss of companionship, and mental anguish after Simon was shot and killed by an RCMP officer.

The settlement prevents the case from going to court.

The family has signed a non-disclosure agreement so details of the agreement are not known.

Brian Arbuthnot is director of operations with the Wagmatcook Band Council.

He spoke with CBC's Joan Weeks about, where this leaves the community.
