Commission Seeks Racism, Finds It, Gives Itself A Year Of Work

CP – Quebec’s human rights commission is launching hearings into racial profiling in the province because it believes minorities are unfairly targeted by authorities…

“We believe that it exists and we affirm it in this document and we’ve seen examples . . . there are consequences and as a society we should be able to make it better and change that.”

Cousineau was referring to a document published by the commission that contains interviews with 150 teens and young adults who complained about racial profiling…

The commission expects to release findings and recommendations by the end of the year.
