Ending race-based policing in Ontario – let us hope we are one step closer

I received an email which I would like to reproduce in its (almost) entirety, because it not only speaks for itself, it also includes the most-important links….and, it does raise a ray of hope!

Here it is, in its (almost) entirety (I only redacted a phone number):

1. Just days after our Queen’s Park news conference –‘Ending Race-Based Policing: The Caledonia Act\,’ – where we were joined by speakers from the pro-Israel Never Again Group and the International Free Press Society,  MPP Toby Barrett has issued a call for strong action re the Caledonia occupation, and praised our efforts and ideas for reaching a resolution…

“Barrett credits Gary Mchale and CANACE for keeping the issue alive in the media and in the limelight, suggesting a lot of McHale’s ideas have been ‘pretty good’.” They include having more oversight from the Ontario Ombudsman with respect to the OPP and more protection for whistleblowers in the Police service.


It was Toby Barrett who made the Queen’s Park Media Studio available for our news conference, as he has done in the past.

3. See also TobyBarrett.com: Occupy Caledonia will be six years February 28
This is the first time that Toby has publicly complimented our work to the media, and we hope it is a sign of good things to come.
Thank you Toby.
