​​Since the government announced the obligation to wear masks in public places, the Commission des droits de la personne et des droits de la jeunesse has been asked about the possibility of filing a complaint to the Commission to challenge this obligation. The Commission wishes to point out that, under the Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms, its responsibility to investigate cases of prohibited discrimination or harassment related to one of the grounds listed in section 10 or a case of exploitation provided for in section 48 of the Charter.

The Commission today presented its preliminary reaction to the publication of the SPVM's policy on police checks. First, it notes that the wording of the policy remains ambiguous on the arrests that will be prohibited and fears that it covers only part of its recommendation on this subject. Last November, the Commission recommended that the City of Montréal definitively prohibit the unjustified stopping of pedestrians and vehicle passengers on its territory. However, the Commission salutes the SPVM's recognition of "the societal problem of systemic racism" and that social inequalities can be linked to systemic discrimination, including that within the SPVM.
