The article presents a reprint of the article "Police launch criminal investigation into actions of emergency department," which appeared at www.cmaj.ca on November 5, 2010. It states that the death of Brian Sinclair, a homeless aboriginal man, was investigated by the Winnipeg Police Service. According to attorney Clayton Ruby, criminal negligence needs both a divergence from competent care and shifting from that standard.
