Regional supervising coroner, Dr. Emily Groot, announced Wednesday afternoon that a public hearing examining the death of Carl Peltier will get underway on Aug. 9 at the Manitoulin Hotel and Conference Centre in Little Current.

Seven witnesses are scheduled to testify at the hearing that is expected to last two days.

Peltier, 53, died in hospital on Aug. 21, 2017, as a result of injuries while working at a construction site in Chelmsford.

An inquest is mandatory under the Coroners Act.

The inquest will examine the circumstances surrounding Peltier’s death. The jury may make recommendations aimed at preventing further deaths.

Peltier was working on a private residential construction project for ProSteel North when he was killed.
