Public Safety committee  I can say that in our response to the indigenous protests in northern B.C. there was no use of force with people. People were arrested.

Public Safety committee  The work we did with that community and in connecting with the hereditary chiefs was unprecedented, and we had actually lots of discussion, and operationally it was a success.

Public Safety committee  When we use certain types of resources—for example, when we have public order individuals—they are unarmed. They have no arming, but just in case something happens or goes sideways, they need to be protected, so they have what's called armed overwatch—

Public Safety committee  When I got into the chair as commissioner, I introduced Vision 150, and that's our road to the 150th anniversary in 2023. The focus was based on people within the RCMP and community. The premise was that if we focus on our people, we'll have better operations and a safer Canada.

Public Safety committee  I don't call it changing my mind. When I talked about systemic racism I kept thinking of all the things...I wasn't looking at it from a historical point of view, I was looking at it through today's lens and thinking about all the things that we have done to eliminate it, and the

Public Safety committee  Any RCMP member who does not live up to our core values will be held to account, point, final, no question. We have obviously a range of disciplinary measures from operational guidance to dismissal. We need to look at hiring the right person, training them properly to be empathe

Public Safety committee  If this moment in time isn't a wake-up call, then shame on everybody, including the RCMP. When I said I struggled with the definition of systemic racism, it wasn't a disacknowledgement of it. When we look at the systems and processes in place.... When I became commissioner, the f

Public Safety committee  When I think of defunding, I think more about funding all social services. Having policed in the north myself, I know that in many communities there is no addictions counselling. There are no mental health crisis centres. In times of crisis, we are the first response. Even if the

Public Safety committee  Yes, we do keep those statistics. I must put a caveat, though, that the statistics are based on self-identification. If somebody doesn't self-identify, then we don't have those statistics. Right now in the RCMP, when we talk about the sworn police officers, 78% are male and 21%

Public Safety committee  During my time as commissioner, that has been a huge priority for me. We have 15 commanding officers of each province or division. When I arrived, for example, there was one female commanding officer, and now seven of the 15 are female. In our senior executive committee...because

Public Safety committee  Actually, it was surprising when I heard the statistics for complaints. We get, on average, about 2,250 to 2,300 complaints a year, and it actually has gone down. In 2018-19, it was 2,317 and in 2019-20 is 2,286. Just to give you some context, when you make the complaint, the C

Public Safety committee  Thank you, Mr. Chair. With me is Dennis Daley, assistant commissioner with contract and indigenous policing. On the screen is Gail Johnson, our fairly new—eight months, probably—chief human resources officer. Good evening. Thank you for the invitation to speak on these critic

Public Safety committee  Yes, as the minister said, before when we took that data—it was to be bias-free—they said you couldn't collect that data. Now we're looking at it and saying that to be more effective and to bring on the change that's needed to combat the racism, we may have to look at starting to
