There is mounting pressure from the public to de-fund the police in Canada
Calls to de-fund the police come amid massive protests that followed the tragic death of George Floyd after a white police officer knelt on his neck for 8 minutes 46 seconds while he was held lying face down and in handcuffs.
The deaths of three young Canadians involving police officers have sparked outrage these last two weeks. The incidents are re-igniting tensed relationships between the police and people of color. There is mounting pressure from the public to de-fund the police in Ontario, after massive protests spread across the globe following the slaying of George Floyd, a black man, by a white police officer in Minneapolis, United States on May 25, 2020. Ontario's Premier, Doug Ford, has dismissed the calls, saying: "I don't believe in that for a second". D'Andre Campbell had been struggling with schizophrenia for years. His case was known to police. The family had called 911 "four or fives times" before when they were concerned about his well-being. Police would then take him to a nearby hospital. He was having a tantrum and holding a knife when the police came and gunned him down on April 6, 2020. He was known for his big heart and big dreams. He was one of eight siblings living with their parents in a cozy neighborhood in Brampton, Ontario, brimming with life. He was shot by police after calling 911 himself. "It's not the first time they come to the house for D'Andre," said his mother. "And once they punch in his name, they should see all the information. To know the type of person that they're coming to deal with. To know how to handle the situation when they come to the house. Don't come and take someone's life when they are calling for help." "They shouldn't be going to our house with guns," Claudius, D'Andre's father says. "For what? They're gonna fight a war? Why are they bringing guns to deal with a mental issue? They're not going to war; they're going to kill. So, they need to retrain all those people and let them think, stop right now." Regis Korchinski-Paquet, 29, fell to her death from the balcony of her apartment in North York while police officers were inside. Korchinski-Paquet was an active member of her church, a talented gymnast and proud of her Ukrainian and Nova Scotian roots. In the past five years, however, she began experiencing epileptic seizures, with the family saying it sometimes required help from police. Korchinski-Paquet's mother has said she called police on May 27 after a family conflict -- but that once officers arrived, things went terribly wrong and it resulted in her tragic death. Chantel Moore, a 26-year-old Indigenous woman from Vancouver Island died after being shot in New Brunswick by the police when officers were called to do a wellness check on her in an apartment. When they arrived, she emerged with a knife and attacked an officer who shot her dead. She died on the scene. People described her as kind, gentle and bubbly.
