So much ughhh… Police demanding to keep using a tactic that has never been proven to be effective, and has been shown to be racist. (Just ending that stupidity was ” never on the table”, apparently). Their assertion that, so long as we don’t say “we only hassled this guy because of his race,” then it technically isn’t racist. Grabbing a supportive quote from the mayor– I mean why wouldn’t you trust a guy who thinks it’s appropriate to mock a person for being paralyzed on national television?

Civic government in Toronto, baby. There’s really nothing like it.

In all seriousness, good luck to Anthony Morgan and co. at the the African Canadian Legal Clinic. They’re going to need to hire more staff.
