The Braidwood Chronicles: another high-voltage shock

...figuratively speaking this time.

Today was supposed to be a day for final submissions to Justice Braidwood. Instead, the existence of an RCMP email, previously overlooked (or so we're told by a "tearful" federal government lawyer) may delay that concluding phase.

It appears to contain evidence that the Four Horsemen had discussed using the Taser before they had even reached Robert Dziekanski, despite their testimony at the inquiry that they had not had any discussion of their possible response, and had no plans to use the Taser before confronting him.

Stay tuned. This story has more twists and turns than a bagful of snakes.

UPDATE: Justice Braidwood is appalled. The RCMP is disappointed. The hearings have now been postponed until September 22.
