Thank you, Mr. Chair.
One concern, when we are talking about taking seriously the issue of systemic racism in Canada, is that the federal government has always had a policy of not collecting race-based data because it says we're not a racist state and everybody's the same.
We know, since we're having this meeting, that everybody's not treated the same. The incidence of violence against indigenous people is much higher and the incidence of targeting racialized and black communities is much higher. Would you make a simple recommendation to say that the RCMP needs to collect race-based data so we actually can start getting better pictures of how the force is being used?
