Officials with the federal government say they will work with officials in our province on the inquiry into the deaths of Lionel Desmond and three family members in Guysborough Co.
The retired corporal shot his wife, their daughter and his mother in Upper Big Tracadie Jan. 3.
Desmond was diagnosed with PTSD and post-concussion disorder following two tours in Afghanistan in 2007.
Seamus O’Regan, Veterans Affairs Minister, says federal officials are prepared to share information about the federal care provided to veterans and their families.
He says they also will discuss how operational stress injuries are addressed and the continuity of care provided to former soldiers.
Provincial officials announced the inquiry Thursday; the judge and terms of reference expected to be announced in the New Year.
