Thank you, Chair.
Thank you very much to our witness here with us today.
I want to expand a little bit on a question that Ms. Ludwig brought up. As the federal government, we can't mandate municipal police forces to have education, but the RCMP does fall within our mandate and, obviously, for a number of women, that is the police force they will come in contact with.
I'm wondering about two things: one, expanded education for police officers before these women get to the courts; and two, we heard from the parole officers that recruitment of indigenous parole officers needs to go into reserve.
Do you think that looking at innovative ways to recruit more indigenous people to go into the RCMP would be advantageous for women who do come in contact with the law?
