Police in Halifax are apologizing for mistakes they made in investigating the Rehtaeh Parsons case. Chief Jean-Michel Blais (Blay) was responding to the findings of an independent report into the police and prosecution service's handling of the matter. He says the force has already changed the way it trains officers handling sexual assault cases. (Parsons' family alleged she was sexually assaulted in November 2011 when she was 15. However, the report yesterday found it was reasonable for the Crown to conclude that sexual assault charges would not result in conviction.)
