Police investigating police


Bill 12 was tabled in the National Assembly on Thursday by the PQ government. It would change the way investigations are handled where people are seriously injured or killed at the hands of a police officer. Julie Matson's father was beaten and killed while, police say, he was resisting arrest in Vancouver. She feels the bill doesn't go far enough. But Denis Cote, the president of the Quebec Municipal Police Federation, is worried about civilians overseeing the investigations.
