Ottawa police equity council member resigns


César Ndéma-Mousa cites ‘failure of leadership’ in aftermath of Montsion verdict. A member of the Ottawa Police Service’s community equity council (CEC) has resigned, citing a “failure of leadership” following the acquittal of Const. Daniel Montsion of all criminal charges in the death of Abdirahman Abdi. César Ndéma-Mousa said the council should have been present at a rally at Confederation Park following the Oct. 20 verdict, where members of the Justice for Abdirahman Coalition addressed approximately 200 people. “What is the point of the committee equity council if it’s not there for the community?” Ndéma-Mousa asked by phone late Thursday afternoon. “Like, what are we here for?”
