Thank you, MP Anandasangaree.
Yes, the seven principles are acknowledgement, community engagement, policy guidance, data collaboration, monitoring, accountability and the sustainability piece.
I would say that what would have been anticipated was getting over the acknowledgement that systemic racism exists. That is not actually the case. In fact, it is the nimbleness to be able to implement some of these mechanisms that achieve the accountability. What we want is for police organizations to have a better awareness of their activities. For example, Chief Larkin spoke about the data collaboration. It requires significant funding to build the infrastructure behind that, and there is a sustainability piece.
The other big component is that the accountability piece, in the public's eyes, when they see us maintaining our own accountability, often doesn't have full trust. I've spoken to the commissioner of the human rights commission in Ontario and the new one, and the desire for an independent ombudsman who has oversight on human rights is almost their desire. For us to self-monitor often creates the biggest questions around how authentic a human rights approach is for a chief. I would say that this would be one of the biggest stumbling blocks.
