Halifax — Nova Scotia RCMP has called on Ontario police to investigate the unauthorized release of the 911 call. One shooter launched a murder assault that night, killing 22 people.

Recordings of such calls are usually not published to ensure the privacy of the caller.

Mounties announced on June 2 that the investigation will take place after a number of recordings have been posted online by Frank Magazine, a Halifax-based gossip and satire publication.

At that time, RCMP said it had contacted the victim’s family and told them that an investigation to determine the cause of the leak would begin.

Today, Mountaines issued a statement that OPP will carry out an independent criminal investigation.

The RCMP states that it is important for Nova Scotian citizens to have the belief that their information will be protected when they call 911.

A federal inquiry into the mass murder in April 2020 is scheduled to begin hearing in October.
