Reforms to RCMP, Canadian justice system coming as protests sweep world, public safety minister says
Discussion posted by: David McNamara
Public Safety Minister Bill Blair says Canada’s justice system needs to change in light of the international protests for police reform. Blair, speaking exclusively to National Post, previewed changes coming to civilian oversight of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police; possible new requirements on how the RCMP tracks use of force incidents, and how his government will reduce the over-incarceration of Indigenous and black people. But at the same time, the minister was light on clear timelines on when his government would be moving on these issues.
