RCMP trial relating to 2014 Moncton shooting delayed, Mounties to defend themselves

A trial relating to the alleged Labour Code violations by the RCMP has been delayed until next Monday.

It was supposed to begin today and involves four charges stemming from the Mounties' response to a Moncton shooting that claimed the lives of three officers back in 2014.

The RCMP pleaded not guilty to the charges in May and is expected to defend itself.

The charges relate to equipment, supervision, and training, and could result in fines of up to $1 million.
