The B.C. Supreme Court has dismissed an application by Canada and British Columbia to strike the claim made by Rosemarie Surakka on behalf of her deceased daughter, Lisa Dudley, for a violation of Ms. Dudley’s s. 7 Charter right not to be deprived of her life except in accordance with the principles of fundamental justice. Ms. Dudley was shot in September 2008 and died four days later. The legal claim centres on the actions and omissions of the RCMP in relation to Ms. Dudley’s death, as described in the Notice of Civil Claim. A report on the Court’s decision may be found here.
