Jacques Delisle, 79, a respected Quebec jurist who served on the bench for nearly a quarter century, was found guilty in 2012 of first- degree murder in the death of Nicole Rainville. In interviews with the CBC and Radio- Canada this week, the incarcerated Delisle said he left a loaded gun for Rainville, 71, to take her own life in November 2009 and tried to talk her out of it, but he insisted he didn’t kill her. Delisle’s relatives and Ontario- based lawyer James Lockyer held a news conference Friday to formally ask for a ministerial review of the case, which Justice Minister Peter MacKay said later in the day would take place. Rainville suffered a stroke on her 69th birthday and became partially paralyzed. She sank into depression before breaking her hip two years later. Delisle was to have testified at his own trial but, at his family’s request, never took the stand. They had just learned about his role in the death and were reportedly devastated. A jury found Delisle guilty of premeditated murder and the province’s Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court of Canada upheld that ruling in 2013. When police arrived at the house the day of the death, Delisle lied and said his wife had got the gun by herself. Asked why he lied, he replied: “ Because I didn’t want the family to know what really happened that morning. I didn’t want the family to know I helped Nicole commit suicide.” Lockyer said Crown forensics experts at Delisle’s trial concluded that Rainville must have been murdered, while the defence argued she had to have taken her own life. “ You could hardly have a more clear split between the experts,” Lockyer told a Quebec City news conference. “ It’s apparent from the verdict the jury accepted the evidence of the Crown expert. I believe they were wrong to do so.” The Centre of Forensic Sciences, an Ontario laboratory, could settle the matter after examining the ballistics evidence anew, Lockyer said. The lab has not yet confirmed it will take part in the process but, if it does, any reports it issues will be sent to all parties. Lockyer also believes the fact Delisle did not testify “ played a huge role in his wrongful conviction.” The Ontario lawyer, who founded the Association in Defence of the Wrongly Convicted, said he has sent MacKay affidavits from Delisle and his son and daughter in an attempt to explain why the judge did not testify. “ We tend to forget in criminal proceedings that it’s a human process and that events can occur out of court that can dictate the events that then transpire in court,” Lockyer said. Hours before Delisle was to take the stand, his family, led by daughter- inlaw Dominique, “ urged him, pleaded with him, cajoled him, into not testifying, for the sake of themselves and the grandchildren,” Lockyer said. “ They did not want the world to hear that their father had helped their mother, their grandmother, commit suicide.” His son, Jean, also attended the Quebec City news conference and made a passionate plea for the release of his father, calling him “ the victim of a serious judicial error.” — The Canadian Press V ANCOUVER — A former Mountie who was involved in Robert Dziekanski’s death and was later held up by the force as an example of a bad apple within its ranks was convicted Friday of perjury for his testimony at a public inquiry. Former corporal Benjamin ( Monty) Robinson was charged along with three other officers for their testimony at hearings that examined what happened when Dziekanski was stunned with a Taser at Vancouver’s airport and died in October 2007. He is the second of the officers to be convicted of perjury. One officer was acquitted and another is awaiting a verdict. Robinson’s case had the most notoriety. He was the senior officer on the scene at the airport and was later convicted of obstruction of justice in an unrelated case involving a fatal vehicle accident. The four officers were summoned to Vancouver’s airport in the early morning of Oct. 14, 2007, after Dziekanski, a Polish immigrant who spoke no English, started throwing furniture in the international terminal. Within seconds of the officers’ arrival, one of them stunned Dziekanski repeatedly with a Taser. The Crown alleged the four officers colluded on a story to tell homicide investigators and then lied at the public inquiry to explain why their initial accounts contradicted an amateur video. B. C. Supreme Court Judge Nathan Smith said the officers all made similar mistakes, notably their incorrect assertion that Dziekanski had to be wrestled to the ground, and the only explanation was that they worked together. “ I simply do not believe that a police officer of his experience could make such a crucial mistake in these circumstances,” Smith said as Robinson listened from the prisoner’s dock. “ I agree with the Crown that he had a direct motive to exaggerate the threat posed by Mr. Dziekanski and to justify the response to that threat.” Dziekanski’s mother, Zofia Cisowski, sat in court wiping her eyes as the judge read the verdict. “ A small amount of justice has happened today and I’m shaking because I’m so excited,” Cisowski said outside court. The Crown also alleged the officers met in the Vancouver area to plan their testimony in the days or weeks before testifying at the inquiry in early 2009, but the judge said he wasn’t convinced beyond a reasonable doubt such a meeting took place. Robinson, who is in his mid- 40s, left the RCMP in 2012. Earlier that year, he was convicted of obstruction of justice in an unrelated case. Robinson was behind the wheel in October 2008 when his vehicle struck and killed a 21- year- old motorcyclist in Delta, south of Vancouver. He told his trial that immediately after the crash he went home and drank two shots of vodka to “ calm his nerves.” A judge concluded Robinson had used his RCMP training in an attempt to fend off accusations of impaired driving. He was given a conditional sentence of 12 months. The RCMP’s top officer in B. C., deputy commissioner Craig Callens, held up the case as an example of the challenges facing the force when it wants to deal with problem officers. Callens said he was “ outraged” with Robinson’s conviction and said it demonstrated the need to change the law that governs how Mounties can be disciplined or fired. Const. Bill Bentley was acquitted of the perjury charge in 2013, though the Crown is appealing the verdict. Const. Kwesi Millington was convicted last month and is awaiting a sentencing hearing. Const. Gerry Rundel’s trial has finished and he is waiting for a verdict. — The Canadian Press Judge earns minister’s ear in assisted- suicide appeal By Sidhartha Banerjee DARRYL DYCK / THE CANADIAN PRESS FILES Benjamin Robinson tried to justify his response by exaggerating the threat posed by Robert Dziekanski, judge says.
