Turns out the entire country is policed by racist organizations.
Systemic racism exists in RCMP, Trudeau argues — after commissioner says she’s ‘struggling’ with the term
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said today the RCMP and other police agencies across the country have a problem with systemic racism — a day after RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki said she’s “struggling” with the term and denied racism is entrenched within the organization.
“Systemic racism is an issue right across the country, in all our institutions, including in all our police forces, including in the RCMP. That’s what systemic racism is,” said Trudeau when asked about Lucki’s comments by reporters during a news conference in Ottawa this morning.
“In many cases it’s not deliberate, it’s not intentional, it’s not aggressive, individual acts of racism, although those obviously exist. It is recognizing that the systems we have built over the past generations have not always treated people of racialized backgrounds, of Indigenous backgrounds, fairly through the very construction of the systems that exist.” – cbc

….Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said today the RCMP and other police agencies across the country have a problem with systemic racism….
How does he know this? Why is he sooo sure? Why has he not done anything about it? Why has he not mentioned it before the recent protests? Why did he not mention this during the Thunder Bay Systemic racism/OIPRD investigation back in 2018? He could have testified. He seems to have knowledge of the subject that others do not have.
I wonder how many people were pointing fingers/laughing at Thunder Bay back in late 2018 when the city’s police service went through that whole systemic racism exercise. A city with a bunch of racist cops. The story went national.
Not laughing now are they?
Our Prime Minister has labeled every police force in Canada as ‘racist organizations’ because of something that an American cop did in an American city. Think about that.
