Episode 56: Police problems and what meaningful accountability could look like in Alberta

Calls to defund and abolish the police have become a mainstream conversation in reaction to the murder of George Floyd by a Minneapolis Police officer and countless other murders and examples of systematic racism and violent behaviour by police forces against Black, Indigenous and People of Colour across Canada and the US.

Edmonton lawyer Avnish Nanda joins Dave Cournoyer on the Daveberta Podcast to discuss the massive shift in the public debate about the role of policing institutions and what meaningful police accountability looks like in Edmonton and Alberta.

We discuss the role of city councils, police commissions, and the provincial and federal governments in policing and how those levels of government can implement police reform. Avnish also shares news about the new Is This for Real? podcast, which is focused on telling stories about experiences Black Edmontonians have had with police (you can support this project on Patreon).

Thanks to our producer Adam Rozenhart for his work making this episode sound so good.

People are sick and tired of your insulting, extreme, and ideological comments on social media. Like the one against Michael Cooper. YOU are the one who should be shown the door, except no one’s ever elected you (thank goodness!)

OK, Sir, now you’ve gone too far. Mr Cornoyer would be well within his rights to block you from ever again commenting on his blog, & from any of his social media channels to boot. You do not provide reasoned arguments for a contrary position to his, just ad hominem insults.
