Police-Discrimination incites training

VANCOUVER — A British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal says Vancouver police officers discriminated against an Indigenous mother and has ordered the police board to pay compensation and train its officer about the legacies of colonialism. The ruling says when Deborah Campbell asked questions during her 19-year-old son’s arrest in 2016, she was “roughly and physically separated from him” and warned she could be arrested for obstructing justice.
