    The inquest into the death of 37-year-old Joyce Echaquan while in a Quebec hospital last September has closed.

    Before she died, the Indigenous woman live streamed video from her own phone of the nurses insulting her with racist taunts. Hospital workers who testified at the hearings acknowledged Echaquan’s death could have been avoided and staff who were present when she died showed remorse.

    As Mike Armstrong reports, the coroner is vowing Echaquan’s death won’t be in vain.
