Read VWHC’s submission to the Special committee on reforming the Police Act

VWHC board chair, Bina Salimath, was invited to make a presentation to the Special Committee on July 22, 2021, along with other Feminists Deliver members.

The role of the Special Committee is to make recommendations to the Legislative Assembly on reforms related to the modernization and sustainability of policing under the Police Act (R.S.B.C. 1996, c. 367); the role of police with respect to complex social issues including mental health and wellness, addictions and harm reduction; the scope of systemic racism within BC’s police agencies; and whether there are measures necessary to ensure a modernized Police Act is consistent with the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (2007).
