One person is dead following a shooting in Brantford on Monday.
It happened near the Brantford General Hospital.
The hospital was on full lockdown Monday night.
Brant Community Healthcare issued a statement saying the shooting victim was taken to the hospital’s emergency room but later died.
The lockdown, which the hospital said was imposed “in the interest of patient and staff safety,” was lifted at about 7 o’clock.
The victim’s name and age have not been released, nor was there any immediate information about a suspect or suspects.
An American Indigenous man’s right to hunt in Canada has been upheld by a judge.
Richard Desautel was charged with violations under British Columbia’s Wildlife Act after he shot and killed an elk in 2010.
He is a member of the Lakes Tribe in Washington state.
And argued he was exercising his constitutional right to hunt for ceremonial purposes and the courts agreed.
However the Crown appealed to the B.C. Supreme Court saying the First Nation he claims to be a member of was declared extinct.
The Supreme Court justice dismissed the appeal, saying Desautel’s tribe traditionally lived on both sides of the border — and that denying his hunting rights would be inconsistent with the objective of reconciliation.

The sale of shares to First Nations across the province was introduced by Premiere Kathleen
Wynne after Ontario Regional Chief Isadore Day objected to First Nations being excluded from
Wynne’s 2015 announcement to partially privatize Hydro One — offering 60 per cent ownership
to the private market.
