MONTREAL -- A man at the centre of an alleged racial profiling incident is accusing Quebec’s Human Rights Commission of gross negligence for its handling of a probe into a violent 2018 arrest caught on video.
Montreal police stopped Brian Mann and his girlfriend, Tayana Jacques, on the street the morning of April 7, 2018 for being “too loud” on St. Laurent Blvd. near Roy St.
A portion of the incident was captured on video by an eyewitness, showing six police officers detaining Mann, while his girlfriend was handcuffed behind a police cruiser just steps from their home. Both were fined $444.
