Street Checks Consultation in Ottawa
(message from Yasir Naqvi's office)

Dear Friends,

Our government takes the protection of human rights very seriously and has zero tolerance for racism or marginalization, including any form of discrimination based on skin colour, background, religion or gender.

We believe that all interactions between that our individual and Charter rights must be upheld every time a citizen has an interaction with law enforcement and we are firmly opposed to any practice where police stop individuals without reason, cause or for clear policing purposes, or simply to gather information.  Moving forward on regulating street checks will ensure a fair, consistent, and enforceable standard throughout the province.

Concerns regarding street checks have been raised in communities across the province and we want to hear directly from Ontarians about their lived experience and to receive their feedback.  There will be a session in Ottawa on Friday, August 21, and I hope you can attend.

Date:  Friday, August 21, 2015
Location:  Carleton University, River Building
                1125 Colonel By Drive, Ottawa
                 (see campus map)
Time:        4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
For more information, or to RSVP, please click here.  
If you are unable to attend, you can complete the consultation document online.
I hope you can participate, and encourage you to share this information with your networks.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Quranic Verse of the week
 In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful 
And [recall, O Children of Israel], when Moses said to His people, "Remember the favor of Allah upon you when He saved you from the people of Pharaoh, who were afflicting you with the worst torment and were slaughtering your [newborn] sons and keeping your females alive. And in that was a great trial from your Lord
