Winnipeg police chief apologizes to Indigenous women as inquiry ends public testimony

Winnipeg's police chief apologized Thursday for treating Indigenous women disrespectfully, as Canada's inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls heard from its final public witnesses.

"The police in Winnipeg have not always been on the right path," Chief Danny Smyth said during testimony in St. John's about his staff's efforts to stamp out sexual exploitation.

Over several years, the force shifted to a "victim-centred" service, which focused on prosecuting traffickers and clients — not sex workers.
