Taser use by B.C. police creeps back up

The death of a man after an altercation with Whistler RCMP that included being pepper sprayed and shocked with a Taser highlight the real, if rare, dangers of a weapon that is seeing a resurgence in use by B.C. police.

Postmedia News analyzed more than a decade of use-of-force data by police in B.C., from 2006-2018, and found that police fired Tasers 255 times in 2018 — the most of any year since 2008.
