'Clear justification' needed after RCMP chase car over sidewalks at rush hour

A federal RCMP investigation that resulted in a dramatic car chase and crash in Halifax Wednesday afternoon has raised questions about whether the methods employed by the police warranted the risk to the public.

Videos on social media show a car leaving the Highway 102 off-ramp just after 3 p.m. and driving over grass with multiple unmarked police SUVs and trucks in hot pursuit. The vehicle then crossed a sidewalk, drove through rush-hour traffic across the busy Joseph Howe Drive, with police right behind it, sped over a second sidewalk and bounced down an embankment onto Elliott Street.
