Cops policing cops and their duty to talk: The questions surrounding Ontario's police watchdog

Against the backdrop of a global pandemic, conversations about race, policing, and police oversight are raging.

Much of this current movement's impetus is due to the killing of George Floyd by a white police officer in Minneapolis in May, and the worldwide protests that followed.

But in Ontario, many of these conversations are inspired by incidents like the death of Regis Korchinksi-Paquet after Toronto police were called to her family's apartment, and the fatal shooting of Ejaz Choudry by Peel police during a mental health call.

Both cases are being handled by the province's Special Investigations Unit (SIU), which conducts criminal probes into incidents involving police that result in serious injury or death, as well as allegations of sexual assault.
