We Want a Coroner's Inquest
We, Ana Acevedo and Isabelle Hains, are the mothers of Javier and Daniel. We are making an impassioned plea to the Premier of New Brunswick, Shawn Graham, the Minister of Public Safety, John Foran, the Minister of Education, Kelly Lamrock, the Minister of Transportation, Denis Landry, the Minister of Justice, TJ Burke, and our own MLA, Brian Kenny, all of whom sit at the Cabinet Table, to encourage Greg Forestell, Acting Chief Coroner, Department of Public Safety, to call a Coroner's Inquest into this terrible tragedy.
You Can Help Us : Sign Our Petition
You can help us by signing our Petition and / or by contacting Greg Forestell and Hon. John Foran by email, letter or phone.
Meantime, as we wait for a decision, we have created this website in the hope that it becomes a source of reliable information on this terrible tragedy and that our calls for a Coroner's Inquest do not go unanswered.
