The groups say the report by former judge William
Davies reveals serious flaws in the police system and they want his
recommendations implemented quickly.
They're calling for a civilian agency to investigate police-related deaths and more help for chronic alcoholics.
They want a review on whether criminal charges should
be laid in connection to Paul's death and a consideration of
compensation for Paul's family.
The groups believe the B.C. government should also
drop its court challenge of a bid by Davies to question Crown
prosecutors about why no charges were laid 10 years ago.
