  1. Mr. Sodhi passed away as the taxi authorities were meeting to deccomment_IDe which illegal partition they were going to require to be installed in all Winnipeg cabs in an experiment with unwilling subjects. Neither the partitions favored by the authorities, nor the Swedish design favored by Unicity, comply with applicable federal or national standards.
    The Provincial and municipal authorities are culpable for the partition impact death of Paul Sodhi.
