Man shot by police in Nanaimo may never be identified

A week after police shot and killed a man at a busy ferry terminal in Nanaimo, B.C., the deceased has still not been identified and may never be.

The independent police watchdog is involved, but if no wrongdoing is found on part of police then the public may never know his name.

“We believe the public has the right to know all the relevant facts behind any incident when an individual is seriously injured or killed by police,” said Ron MacDonald, chief civilian director of the Independent Investigations Office of BC.
