Random or arbitrary police carding will stop

The Province has announced that random or arbitrary police carding will cease as of this Fall.  Minister Naqvi said “We as a government stand opposed, Speaker, to any arbitrary, random stops by the police simply to collect information when there are no grounds or reason to do so…We have heard from the community that street checks, by definition, are arbitrary as well as discriminatory and therefore cannot be regulated; they must simply be ended. The province agrees that these types of stops must end.”  To read more on this story, click here to access the Toronto Star article.
