Letters: Family deserves answers

I read with interest the update on Myles Gray's untimely death [“Quick Peak: MLA calls for investigation changes,” October 25]

It is simply unconscionable that the Vancouver Police Department has never answered to anyone regarding the death of this young man. I don't understand how the government has not exercised its authority to demand transparency of the VPD or start to fire people who refuse to comply with investigators.

Gray’s family has suffered long enough and deserves answers. This incident has placed a cloud of distrust and lack of accountability over the entire VPD and, in many ways, over the entire arm of justice in this province that is supposed to serve and protect its people.

Since we have a new government in place, I would like to see it prove it is different from the last one in power and bring this sad story out of the shadows and into the light of true justice. The family deserves to know, as do the people of this province, who want to be able to trust their police departments to be honest and accountable.
