After exhausting all appeals, Ontario Provincial Police Acting Sgt. Kenneth Deane, who was convicted of criminal negligence causing death after shooting protester Dudley George at Ipperwash Provincial Park, was forced to resign from the police service.

Deane had been sentenced to 180 hours of community service for George’s death.

First Nations protesters occupied Ipperwash park in 1995 to protect a traditional burial site, which the government first denied was there, but later found documents which proved its existence.
