Death in Custody

Still no decision from the Divisional Court in Braithwaite on whether inquests should be mandatory for the deaths of psychiatric inpatients. That means the friends and family of Ryan Coulter, who died a few weeks ago in the medium secure unit at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health will have to wait to see if the Office of the Chief Coroner acts according to its stated policy to call inquests into the deaths of those held in the forensic mental health system. A memorial is planned for Ryan at the Worship Centre of the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health on November 26, 2007 at 2:00 p.m. All are welcome.
