Commission calls on Montreal police to collect data on racial, social profiling - CBC

Originally published: September 13, 2017

Some local politicians say it's time for Montreal police to keep track of cases of racial and social profiling.

Collecting that data is one of 31 recommendations for fighting racial and social profiling issued Tuesday by the Social Development and Diversity and Public Security commissions, made up of city and borough councillors from Montreal and demerged cities.

The commission members want the City of Montreal to "recognize that the problems posed by racial and social profiling persist" and to pursue its fight against racial and social profiling "because these behaviours are neither normal nor tolerable in its public service."
