Petition to the House of Commons

Whereas:
  • There are persistent gross inequalities, police brutality, racial profiling and the rise of systemic racism, which has been scientifically analyzed and documented in Canada;
  • The Prime Minister recognized in his June 7, 2020, speech that systemic racism is a problem everywhere in Canada, in all our institutions, including our police forces;
  • There is an urgent need for effective measures to combat systemic racism in Canada; and
  • It is necessary to adequately sort through reports of real racism, false alarms and other crisis situations unrelated to racism.
We, the undersigned, citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the House of Commons to make a resolution requiring the federal government to urgently activate a “Racism Alert” number (111). This reporting tool, available throughout Canada, will be for potential victims of racist incidents that endanger human life and social peace.
