Hamilton Man tasered by Police during Epileptic Seizure on October 2nd 2022

October 12, 2022

The Canadian Epilepsy Alliance (CEA) does not condone any type of physical restraint when dealing with a seizure.

Police Training for seizure management is available on their own Canadian Police Knowledge Network (CPKN) currently as an Elective Training Tool.

The CEA is asking for support and partners to make this training MANDATORY for all police in Canada. This 40-minute training session with videos will result in more education, and awareness and ultimately allow police to have the confidence to handle any seizure calmly and safely.

The CEA is a Canada-wide network of community organizations dedicated to the promotion of independence and quality of life for people with epilepsy and their families, through support services, information, advocacy, and public awareness initiatives representing those living with epilepsy in Canada.

Mr. Charles is being offered support by the community epilepsy agency responsible for Hamilton.
