Abstract:

Summarizes the findings of a commission formed to inquire into the extent to which Ontario criminal justice practices, procedures, and policies reflect systemic racism. The commission's terms of reference directed it to investigate: the exercise of discretion at important decision-making points; community policing policies and their implementation; systemic responses to alleged criminal conduct by justice officials in relation to racial minority victims; preventing systemic racism through employment practices; policy-making and participation of racial minorities in reform processes; and access to justice services by racial minorities. In its inquiry, the commission interviewed representatives of every aspect of the justice system; surveyed white, black, and Chinese residents of Metro Toronto on their perceptions of racism in justice; held focus groups and structured interviews on specific areas of concern; conducted public hearings; and invited submissions from interested parties. Specific aspects of the justice system examined include prison admission, pre-trial imprisonment, charge management, court dynamics, imprisonment after conviction, community policing, and responses to police shootings. Recommendations for reform are provided throughout. Concludes with discussion of a framework of an equality strategy for justice and what should be done to achieve an inclusive, responsive, and accountable justice system.
