What should be clear to all police officers is that they have a duty to uphold the oath they took when making the determination to become a police officer – it’s in their oath and the Police Services Act.
The six-year-old black child that was handcuffed and led to the police car of a Peel region officer has won 35,000 dollars in a Human Rights Tribunal ruling.
The decision comes approximately one year after the Tribunal ruled that two Peel police officers’ actions against the six-year-old constituted a “very serious” breach of the child’s human rights.
The Re-opening Ontario Act and others like it throughout the country have given Canadians the ostensible view that their rights are on hold – that the emergency powers supersede their rights. This couldn’t be further from the truth – but we understand how the draconian actions that we’ve been beholden to would cause you to question the aforementioned statement.
There are many reasons to not wear a mask as detailed by the Ontario Human Rights Code. Many of these are not visible.
