About

The violent, even murderous, character of police agencies in Canada is too often overlooked and police violence portrayed as occasional, anomalous, or atypical. This project will document killings of people by police at all levels in Canada. It will also provide historical insights and political economic context for police in Canada. Where possible it will document the officers responsible, police accounts of their killings, and public and/or legal responses (or lack of responses) to killings by Canadian police. Police in Canada are organized as agents of lethal force first and foremost and this project will put murderous police actions front and center as part of a broader understanding of the real repressive function of police in Canadian society.
