'I was pulled over 3 times': Stories of racial discrimination in Saskatchewan - CBC

As a First Nations person who grew up in Regina, Sask., I certainly have my fair share of discriminating stories. I got my driver's licence around the same time there were a high number of vehicle thefts happening in the city.

I will never forget my first week of driving, in which I was pulled over not once, not twice, but three times.

My vehicle was registered, insured and I was driving legally. It wasn't until the third time that week that I felt that it was racial discrimination.

My question is, have things changed since then?
