Just to correct this bit in the article - Additionally, Canadians have been protesting the recent death of Regis Korchinski-Paquet, a black Toronto woman whose mother says the 29-year-old woman was fatally pushed off a balcony by authorities.
The distraught mom later recanted this comment about police pushing her off the balcony - stating she did not actually know what had occured. Local reports indicate police received THREE 911 calls about this woman (one from the distraught mother), a disturbance, and that a knife was involved. When police arrived, the family were all in the hall, the woman was in the apt alone. Mom wanted police to take dtr to the psychiatric facility. Police had responded on other occasions to the apartment. There is more to be revealed as the tragic story unfolds. Personally, I suspect an agitated psychotic episode, not police pushing her off the balcony. Sad situation for everyone involved, no question about that.
