Police in Canada have an excellent record of safe citizen interaction. You will not be killed by police in Canada if you are unarmed and cooperate with police. It is a statistical fact. One example would be the Toronto Police Services which have not killed any unarmed people during police interactions over the past ten years. Zero. This is despite Toronto being a dangerous, violent city with hundreds of yearly shootings. Over those past ten years, two Officers have lost their lives while on duty protecting the public. Despite the facts, certain groups continue to make absurd claims to the contrary. Race hoax activists are so desperate to find examples of police racism, and any racism in Canada, they rely on US examples. You won't hear of any legitimate allegations against police in Canada for shooting unarmed, cooperating suspects. This is why the argument in Canada invariably turns to counterfeit passing, fentanayl users in Minnesota to " prove " systemic racism and to promote the myth of unarmed Blacks being "gunned down " by " racist " Canadian police. The data is clear that there is no systemic racism in policing in Canada. The Ontario Human Rights Commission proved this. Policing The Ontario Human Rights Commission (OHRC) released a report that disproves any inherent, structural advantages to people based on their race in Toronto policing. The report looked at set of nine criminal charges. Interestingly, the data was divided into three groups: White, Black and “other racial minority” despite the data actually being prepared by the Toronto Police to reflect six racial groups: White, Black, Asian, Aboriginal, Brown, Unknown. The three group data format showed that for all 9 set of charges, Whites were more represented than “other racial minority”. If the system is designed to favour Whites over non-Whites, this comparison against “other racialized minority” does not support that theory. As per the report, Whites constitute 48% of the population and represent 45.5% of all criminal charges. This would be objectively seen as neutral: neither advantageous nor disadvantageous. The “other racial minority” group represents 42.8% of the population and 22.2% of total charges. This shows that " other racialized " people are significantly less likely than Whites to be charged criminally. Furthermore, the data indicates that the system of Toronto Policing demonstrates zero evidence of systemic racism against “other racialized minorities” and neutral to Whites. Left wing, radical activists have seemingly launched their latest race hoax to promote the false narrative that police are racist and " gun down" innocent Black men. On January 21, 2022, Moses Erhirhie died in a police interaction with York Regional Police. The Go Fund Me page describes Moses as " exuberant ". Their description of the interaction is as follows: "On January 21, 2022, around 9:15pm, an exuberant Moses Erhirhie was gunned down by the York Regional Police." It also reads: "This senseless and tragic killing has left his family grieving with many unanswered questions. Accountability needs to happen, the truth must be told, shed light on awareness. His mother needs to find peace in knowing that the loss of her son’s life, will not go in vain. Moses was incredibly supportive and uplifting." https://www.gofundme.com/f/justice-for-moses-erhirhie The Toronto Star, a stalwart in the race baiting, anti-police, media industry, published an article from the perspective of the family. Apparently, the family is owed immediate answers despite the ongoing investigation. It has been less than two weeks. It is standard operating procedure to keep details of the investigation confidential until the investigation is concluded and the Star knows this. https://www.thestar.com/local-markham/news/2022/01/28/we-have-no-idea-family-of-man-who-died-in-police-involved-shooting-pleads-for-details-support.html The most recent race hoax in Toronto was " Justice for Regis" in which the media and the family claimed that police threw Regis Korchinski-Paquet over her tiny apartment balcony. Why did the police do that? Well, just because the police are "racist" and Regis was multi racial. Sound absurd? It was. In fact, it was revealed that Regis and her brother has gotten into a knife fight with one another over the volume of the television. As a result, the mother asked the police to remove her daughter. Actually, Regis, her brother, and the mother all made their own individual calls asking the police to intervene. Once Regis learned the police were going to remove her, again, at her mother's request, Regis ran out to her tiny, cramped balcony. The tiny space looked like a storage unit and, in what appeared to be an attempt to reach another balcony, she jumped off her balcony and tragically fell to her death. The media reported: "The police killed my daughter, came into my apartment and shoved her off the balcony," Beals Clayton, Regis's mother, said the day her daughter died." This narrative played perfectly with the race hoax mob/media and the story spread. Prior to the " Justice for Regis" hoax, the media, cbc and ctv, launched the hijab hoax. Remember Khawlah Noman? An " Asian man " cut off her hijab twice in the way to school, just because... "racism/Islamaphobia". You know. Everyday stuff in Canada. PM Trudeau had a press conference to call out Islamophobia within hours. This media launched the fraud which quickly became international news. But, we didn't learn our lesson. We love our media to tell us how terrible and racist us Canadians are. The hoaxes keep coming, but the favorite one is that police kill unarmed Black men in Canada out of racism. https://nationalpost.com/news/toronto/until-it-was-found-to-be-a-hoax-toronto-girls-hijab-made-news-not-the-attack-on-her Let's look at Moses Erhirhie who is a strong candidate to give the Canadian media and race batters their next candidate for a race hoax. The Globe and Mail mentioned him in an article from July 30, 2012. "On Saturday, police responded to concerns from residents about drug use and disorderly behaviour near Denarda Avenue, off Weston Road, said Const. Vella. Police from the local division allegedly saw 25-year-old Moses Erhirhie running from them and throwing something that looked like a firearm. Police said they arrested him and seized a loaded Bryco .380 semi-automatic firearm with a magazine and several rounds of ammunition." https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.theglobeandmail.com/amp/news/toronto/toronto-police-credit-tipsters-for-weekend-firearm-seizures/article4449866/ In September of 2018, Moses was back in the news. Read the following: "Moses Erhirhie, 31, of Etobicoke, and Amber Woods, 21, of St. Cathartines have been arrested and charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking in each of the drugs, and possession of the proceeds of property obtained by crime." https://www.stcatharinesstandard.ca/news/niagara-region/2018/09/28/drugs-seized-and-two-arrested-in-st-catharines.html I do not have access to court records and do not know if Moses was convicted of these or other crimes. He should be presumed innocent until proven guilty. Does it sound possible there might be an alternative narrative to the one described by the Go Fund Me page? Was there another side to this " supportive and uplifting " community member? Do you think policing York Region is easy? Check out this video: https://globalnews.ca/video/6754231/graphic-video-appears-to-show-york-regional-police-officer-being-attacked The police, based on historical evidence, should also be given the benefit of the doubt that police in Canada simply do not kill unarmed, cooperating suspects. It would be interesting to see if the media will ever mention these charges and advise if the suspect had a weapon at the time of the interaction and if he had a "no gun/weapons restriction" due to previous charges. The main takeaway is do not believe the media and the narrative they push until they present facts and evidence. A reasonable person would assume, based on empirical evidence, that this is another race hoax. Let's wait and see all the evidence before we believe this was a " senseless " killing by "racist" cops who "gunned down" uplifting, Moses. Odds are that anyone dying from a police interaction was armed and uncooperative. The evidence, not media reports from biased organizations like the Toronto Star and CBC or Go Fund Me pages, will determine what happened on January 22, 2022. More likely than not, there was a gun and resistance involved.
