Vancouver Airport Authority welcomes the Provincial Government announcement of its intention to launch a full public inquiry into the death of Robert Dziekanski on October 14, 2007, and the policy governing the use of Tasers by police in B.C.

Larry Berg, President and CEO of Vancouver Airport Authority, commends the idea of public inquiry, saying: "We agree with the Provincial Government's intention to have an open and public review of all aspects of this tragedy. We will await the publication of further details from the Government, but let me say that, from day one, we have been cooperating fully with the independent Coroner's Investigation and will continue to co-operate with any and all inquiries. We will act on the recommendations that come out of our own review or any of these other independent inquiries."
