COMMISSION OF INQUIRY INTO MATTERS RELATING TO THE DEATH OF NEIL STONECHILD

APPLICATION FOR FUNDING FOR ALTERNATE COUNSEL FOR STELLA BIGNELL

RULING

Ms. Bignell sought funding initially for two counsel, Mr. Worme and Mr. Curtis. I did not allow two counsel. There was no request for funding for alternate counsel although other parties to the inquiry did make such a request. In some instances I set rates of compensation for such persons.

Ms. Bignell now makes formal application through her counsel, Mr. Worme, to set compensation for alternate counsel with respect to her participation in the hearing. The request is a reasonable one especially in light of the directions I have given as to other parties. The hourly rate for alternate counsel is set at $125.00 and the directions that were granted with respect to other parties will apply to Ms. Bignell's counsel as well.

Dated at the City of Saskatoon, in the Province of Saskatchewan, this 25th day of June, 2003.
