TORONTO, Jan. 9, 2018 /CNW/ - The Honourable Justice Michael H. Tulloch, who is conducting an independent review of the regulation introduced last year on the collection of identifying information by police, has announced that he will hold 12 public consultations across the province.
The purpose of the consultations is for Justice Tulloch to hear views from the general public and affected people about the police practice known as carding or street checks. The Ontario Government established new rules for the practice on January 1, 2017, formally known as Ontario Regulation 58/16. Justice Tulloch's report is to be published no later than January 1, 2019.
At the public consultations, Justice Tulloch would like to hear from the public whether the new rules are being followed and whether they address the public concerns about the practice.
Justice Tulloch will also hold meetings with stakeholders including police, police associations, community groups and individuals.
The public consultations will be held between February 1, 2018 and April 23, 2018. Three will be held in the Toronto area and others in Thunder Bay, Brampton, Hamilton, Ajax, Markham, Windsor, London, Ottawa and Sudbury.
All consultations will be held in the evenings – doors will open at 5 p.m. and the proceedings will start at 6 p.m. A full schedule and exact locations of the meetings is available on the Review's website.
