Summary Translation: Sumeet Dhami - Protests were happening around the US, and on the weekend, a protest by about 4,000 people was also held in Toronto. 29-year-old Regis Korchinski-Paquet died in Toronto when she fell from her balcony. Five police officers were in her apartment and had been informed of her mental health condition. The protest in Toronto was under the motto 'Not another Black life.' Loveleen Kaur, a Punjabi woman who participated in the protest, said she attended because this is her community. They need to open their eyes and see how they are treated. If they do not not support one another, who will support them? After all, this happened in Brampton. The reporter agreed with Loveleen that it was not just Regis. Two month ago, 26-year-old D'Andre Campbell was killed by police in Brampton. In 2014, police shot Jermaine Carby at a routine traffic stop. PdD student in Global Affairs & Public Policy Amrita Kumar-Ratta said this is not an issue that started a week ago. It is ongoing. People should talk with their family members at the dinner table about how we are complicit. The reporter said this starts in the school system, and parents should go to the school board meetings and listen to the perspectives of Black parents.
