Vancouver mayor says he will review 'carding' policy after Toronto activist stopped by police

VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – After Toronto activist Desmond Cole claims he was “carded” by a Vancouver Police officer last week, Vancouver Mayor Kennedy Stewart says he is planning to address concerns around the practice of random police checks in Vancouver.

Stewart recently spoke with Cole and a representative of Black Lives Matter Vancouver on the phone after Cole says he was stopped by police last week for no reason and asked for identification. A disproportionate number of people stopped by random police checks — known as “carding” — are minorities.
