Thank you for the question. It's similar to questions that have been asked, and I think it's really important.
We've had this conversation around racial profiling and whether this mandatory breath screening will impact racial minorities more than others. I will say that, again, mandatory roadside screening acts as a deterrent. Officers, as you quite rightly point out, and others can continue to lawfully pull individuals over. I have to go back to the confidence I have in law enforcement officers and the necessity for law enforcement officers in various jurisdictions to continue to get the necessary training that's required, and that includes how we deal with marginalized communities, how we deal with implicit bias.
What's the Department of Justice going to do in this regard, in terms of the application, ensuring that law enforcement officers apply this screening device in a fair way? I've continued to have discussions with my counterparts in the provinces and territories, the attorneys general. We've had discussions about this particular piece of legislation and the impact, whether that be around training...and that includes resources. As well, my colleague, the Minister of Public Safety, has indeed had conversations with his counterparts. In fact, we have federal, provincial, and territorial meetings together on many occasions.
I am committed to ensuring that we continue to have these discussions with our counterparts, continue to ensure that we provide the necessary support so that law enforcement officers in their jurisdictions have the ability to access this training, have the ability to ensure that they can continue to improve on their training. We need to understand and recognize that separate and apart from the training around what's required in terms of the ministry, the screening, racial profiling is also a serious issue that law enforcement officials, all people, actors in the criminal justice system need to be very aware of. That's inherently part of my commitment in terms of my mandate letter from the Prime Minister, to be mindful of the realities that marginalized individuals face in our country.
