A surviving victim as well as relatives of murdered seniors – are among those winning permission to take part in a public inquiry – into the actions of Ontario killer nurse Elizabeth Wettlaufer.
Others among the 17 participants granted standing are: advocacy and health-care groups, nurse and doctor organizations, and the province itself.
They will all have the right to call and question witnesses.
Commissioner Eileen Gillese says those given standing have “a clear and direct interest” in the inquiry – and she has also recommended funding for some of them.
Wettlaufer is serving a life sentence for killing eight elderly long-term-care residents in Ontario.
