It’s happening all over the country and it has for years. Saskatoon, Edmonton, Toronto Halifax, the list goes on and on. It’s called ‘carding’. Well the kids call it ‘carding’, the police call it ‘street checks’. This is the practice of some police forces of randomly stopping citizens on the street and questioning them. You know, who are you? Where are you going? Who do you know? What’s your height? What’s your weight? Do you have tattoos? It’s all documented including perceived skin colour. Which is why we know that young black men are carded disproportionately more than anyone else.
