RCMP and partners travel to Northern B.C. to teach people their rights
A series of workshops about British Columbians’ rights when dealing with the RCMP are heading to the north, led by three organizations that often act as “watchdogs” of police, writes Kelowna Capital News.
The B.C. Civil Liberties Association, along with the Independent Investigations Office of B.C. (IIO) and Complaints Commission for the RCMP will tour through Terrace, Smithers and Prince George, offering two hour workshops to community members, the online article reads.
“The workshops come about one year after results of a review of RCMP in Northern B.C. was released by the federal complaints commission, which found that there was a perception of RCMP bias against Indigenous people and a lack of trust in Mounties throughout the region,” writes Black Press reporter Ashley Wadhwani.
