The Ontario government has managed to put off - at least temporarily - an investigation into the killing of an aboriginal protester at Ipperwash Provincial Park in 1995. The Tories bumped the probe off the agenda of the Legislature's justice committee when it referred a bill involving last month's budget to the committee. The budget item will now have to be dealt with before the investigation into the 1995 shooting of Dudley George, who was fatally shot by OPP Acting Sergeant Kenneth Deane during the confrontation in the park.
