Four officers with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police filed suit against the attorney general claiming they were inadequately trained and equipped to deal with an attack by a heavily armed gunman that claimed the lives of three of their colleagues in 2014.

According to, Mathieu Daigle, Martine Benoit, Robert Nickerson, and Shelly Mitchell blame the AG for the deaths of Officers Fabrice Gevaudan, Dave Ross, and Doug Larche. Officers Eric Dubois and Darlene Goguen were wounded in the attack.

The gunman in the incident—identified as Justin Bourque—was sentenced to three consecutive life sentences without chance of parole for at least 75 years.
