Public Safety committee  Really importantly, there needs to be an independent review, a truly independent review, not necessarily police reviewing police but a civilian review that looks at the actions of many police officers. Just in general, I suppose the training needs to be reviewed as well in terms

Public Safety committee  Overall, just in general, we need our own police forces. There's one that exists here in British Columbia, and there are many others in Ontario and other provinces.

Public Safety committee  I don't know if it should be separate. It depends on the situation, with perhaps it could be separate if there is training needed to go into really remote and rural areas, but I think overall what we're seeing is that the incarceration and deaths of first nations, Inuit and Métis

Public Safety committee  Thank you, Mr. Chair. Thank you for that question, Mr. Vidal. I think the example you gave of a small community is a perfect example of how the RCMP needs to relate to the governance. For my first nations community.... I am from the Takla Lake First Nation. We have three police

Vice-Chief Terry Teegee

Public Safety committee  Thank you. I just want to acknowledge the territory that I'm on right now, the Shuswap territory in British Columbia.
