Public Safety committee  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 acknowledgeme

Public Safety committee  The model of a crisis response, where there's a uniformed officer and a crisis professional, is absolutely a successful model. Every municipality that has employed it has seen upwards of 50% of their mental health apprehensions averted. The reason is that, if you send two officer

Public Safety committee  Thank you, MP Sikand. I appreciate the comments and the totality of it. I will first say that what keeps every police leader up at night is the individual actions of their officers. The front-end investment in making sure we hire the best to do the best and build an environment

Public Safety committee  Chief Larkin, I'll take a quick run at this and pass it on to you. You're absolutely right. I need to clarify that quite often what we see is that mental health calls for service are interwoven with other social disorders or criminal activity, so they are sort of inherent in re

Public Safety committee  Bryan, do you want to wrestle over this one? I'll bet we'd both like to take this one. Maybe I can answer and save some time for Chief Larkin as well.

I think in my presentation I illustrated about seven principles with a human rights-centric focus embedded in a policy by the Ontario Human Rights Commission that they issued in 2019.

Public Safety committee  I don't think I can actually. It's a very complex one, but I would be happy to speak to it again if it came up.

Chief Nishan Duraiappah

Public Safety committee  I'd first like to acknowledge that we too acknowledge the tragic circumstances and the deaths of individuals. I think any police leader across Ontario and Canada would agree that none of our people set out with that intended outcome. Notwithstanding that I can't speak to the spec

Public Safety committee  As you indicated, Mr. Paul-Hus, our populations, particularly in Ontario with our indigenous communities, are defined very dramatically. As you know, in the greater Toronto area we have upwards of 12 million people in a dense amalgamated blur. Then you can very easily get to nort

Public Safety committee  Thank you, Chair. I start by acknowledging my role as a settler on the region of Peel, which is part of the treaty lands territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. Once again, to committee members and the chair, I'm thankful for the invitation to participate in the discussi
