Today, Justice Timothy Preston released his findings from the inquest into the death of Brian Sinclair at Health Sciences Centre in 2008.

The inquest was held from August 2013 - June 2014, hearing from 82 witnesses, including Manitoba Nurses Union’s members.

As a party with standing, MNU submitted the ER report with several recommendations to improve healthcare delivery in Winnipeg Emergency Departments.

A number of recommendations from this report were included into Justice Timothy Preston’s report. Our efforts will be targeted at ensuring the recommendations are implemented.

"The inquest was a very difficult but very important process for everyone involved,” said MNU president Sandi Mowat. “We will work with the WRHA to ensure such a tragic occurrence never happens again."
