Quebec coroner investigating Echaquan death admits that file of Inuk man Sivuak Eliyassialuk slipped through the cracks

Quebec’s chief coroner says their report about Jimmy Sivuak Eliyassialuk, 22, an Inuk man who died while in police custody in Nunavik, sat for more than a year longer than it should have leaving his family in limbo on the specific details of his death.

“It was dropped by everyone in the office, and I tried to find the reason why but have been unable to.”
