SYDNEY, NS - The Cape Breton Regional Municipality is encouraging the provincial Justice Minister to conduct a complete and thorough review of the 1990 death of New Waterford teenager Clayton Miller.
Mayor Clarke wrote to Provincial Attorney General and Minister of Justice Lena Diab and expressed support of the review she announced in September.
"The full scope of the Medical Examiner's office needs to be brought to bear on this matter," said Mayor Clarke in his letter. "The Chief Medical Examiner, Doctor Matt Bowes, must examine all of the previous work that was done and provide as definitive a conclusion as possible."
