Watchdog takes Winnipeg police to court to get cadets' notes after Taser death

Manitoba's police watchdog is taking the Winnipeg Police Service to court after it refused to hand over the notes of the two cadets who witnessed the final moments of Matthew Fosseneuve's life.

The Independent Investigation Unit (IIU) filed an application Tuesday in the Court of Queen's Bench seeking a court order to force Winnipeg police to turn over the notes.

The cadets were there when the 34-year-old was hit with a stun gun during an arrest and died in July 2018.

Records filed with the application show Winnipeg police Chief Danny Smyth and the service's labour liaison officer both refused to turn over the cadets' notes to the IIU following Fosseneuve's death.
