Family wants PM to launch Rights and Democracy inquiry Add to ...

Family of Rémy Beauregard, the late president of Rights and Democracy, are calling on the Prime Minister to launch a public inquiry into the situation at the embattled agency and the circumstances surrounding their brother's death.

In a letter to Stephen Harper, Mr. Beauregard's relatives asked the Prime Minister to listen to the opposition parties, the agency's staff and the three former presidents who have been calling for an inquest into recent events at Rights and Democracy.

Mr. Beauregard died of a heart attack after an acrimonious board meeting on January 7, which saw two prominent board members resign and a group of new appointees seize majority control of the board from Mr. Beauregard and his allies.

Since then, the staff have called on three board executives to resign, three senior staff have been suspended, and two employees had their computers stolen during a break-in that coincided with Mr. Beauregard's funeral.
