Funds raised at this show will go towards the costs associated with the inquest into the murder of Errol Greene at the winnipeg remand centre in May last year. Though Errol’s widow Rochelle was granted standing at the inquest, the state does not provide any funding for legal representation, or other costs such as childcare, etc. Please consider making a generous donation, as costs will be very high, and no amount of benefit shows will make any significant dent in that bill.

Excerpt from the Go Fundme Page: https://www.gofundme.com/rochelles-legal-fees-for-inquest

We’re raising funds for the ongoing legal costs associated with the inquest into Errol Greene’s death happening later in 2017. The inquest will come before the civil suit, and only the latter will be pro-bono. There is a chance that the civil suit, if won, could include damages for the costs of legal representation in the inquest. However, we would also need to put money raised here towards other costs that will not be covered during the inquest, such as childcare, transportation, etc. The legal costs are impossible to estimate but could be up to $25,000.

About Errol

Errol Greene, a 26-year old father of four, was locked up in the Winnipeg Remand Centre on April 29th for a breach of probation on a mischief charge. He was denied medication for his epilepsy, and three days later he died a senseless, preventable death. Witnesses say he was handcuffed and shackled during a seizure, then thrown into a cell. His family are demanding answers from the Remand Centre, and so far none have been forthcoming. Errol’s wife, Rochelle Pranteau, and other family members and friends are joining with community members to call for justice.
