Montreal Police hold Indigenous sensitivity training sessions – but is it working?

How Montreal police use the Indigenous sensitivity training they receive is the subject of some controversy.

The courses have been ongoing for three years.

But given some of the mis-steps from the police, is the training working?

Inuit people who hang out in Cabot Square are often ticketed for loitering, or public drunkenness.

And this past summer, an Inuk woman was released from custody in the middle of the night in a vacant part of Montreal.
