Event description

Description

On Tuesday November 22, 2016, London city councillors unanimously voted to publicly call on the London Police Chief to ban street checks.

This vote was the first of its kind in Ontario by a municipality. It will be presented to the London Police Services Board at their next meeting on December 15, 2016.

The call to end carding has been met with resistance from the police chief and chair of the London Police Services Board. The police chief has denied racism or racial profiling is an issue in London, as well as indicating that there are now new regulations brought by the Ontario government to regulate street checks that they will comply with.

The issue of street checks is a conversation about the intersection between police investigative methods, racial profiling, and Charter rights. We want to hear your concerns and questions, and your perspectives and experiences with street checks.

Please join us with host Susan Toth as we explore this important topic.
