SIU’s creation came amidst racially-charged atmosphere

“When a police shooting results in a fatality, an investigation into the incident is critical to ensure that the law and policy on the use of deadly force is not only complied with, but so seen by the public.” — Report from the Task Force on Race Relations and Policing, which led to the creation of the SIU

Black men had been shot dead by police, the public was furious, and the collective confidence in police oversight was at an all-time low.

The year could have been 2016, with protesters camped outside police headquarters, demanding justice for Andrew Loku and others shot dead by police and decrying the lack of transparency, while Toronto city council asks the province for a review of the police watchdog.
