An inquest into his death has been set for October 31 at Burnaby Coroners’ Court.

The Independent Investigations Office (IIO) cleared Vancouver police of any wrongdoing in Rintoul’s death in February 2019.

The IIO’s report found that police were justified in opening fire after Rintoul allegedly stabbed a vendor in the Canadian Tire and attempted to steal guns.

The BC Coroners’ Service is required by law to conduct an investigation into any death that occurs while someone is in detention or in the care of a peace officer.

The inquest will hear witnesses under oath to establish the facts of how, when, where and how Rintoul’s death occurred.

A coroner’s jury will make recommendations to prevent similar deaths in the future, but will not make a legal finding of responsibility.
