Families of police-shooting victims call for action in wake of Sammy Yatim’s death

This was posted more than 12 months ago. The information may be outdated.

The families have allied with the Ontario Federation of Labour and the Urban Alliance on Race Relations to keep the pressure on for change. The federation also wants the Ontario government to mandate uniform approaches to dealing with mentally disturbed people.

The groups held a news conference ahead of a noon-hour rally where demonstrators demanded police forces finally head longstanding calls to train officers in better techniques to de-escalate confrontational situations without using deadly force.
