The B.C. Civil Liberties Association (“BCCLA”) and Pivot Legal Society (“Pivot”) call for the legislature to introduce civilian investigation of police misconduct in British Columbia as soon as possible, following the release of former Judge Josiah Wood, Q.C.’s audit of 294 police complaints in the province.
“The product of the investigative audit is found in Appendix C of the report. The audit provides
reliable evidence that police are unable to investigate themselves”, says Jason Gratl, president of the BCCLA. “We now have more than anecdotes to justify legislative reform.”
