The Calgary Police Service and Statutes are still investigating the incident. More information will be released when investigations are completed.

Thursday’s development comes after Mayor Jyoti Gondek announced that the city will conduct its own investigation into the fatal incident.

Alberta Health Services conducted an internal review of the response to the dog attack and concluded that the consolidation of the EMS dispatch system did not affect response time.

It was previously reported that it took around 30 minutes for paramedics to arrive, but an initial assessment by AHS suggested the call was not prioritized as a life-threatening call.

Gondek has previously said he is not buying Health Minister Jason Copping’s claims that the incident was not a malfunction of the EMS dispatch system.

He repeated claims by previous city councils that consolidating EMS dispatch to a provincial system “won’t work.”

“The system is broken,” said the mayor.

“The bottom line is longer response times and unnecessary extra steps in the process of reporting a complex emergency that dramatically affects patient outcomes.”
