The SIU should: "The public should receive as much information as possible when an SIU investigation is commenced," Tulloch said, before criticizing the current system where only the attorney general gets a full report, while the public gets a heavily-redacted version. Representatives from Black Lives Matter Toronto, whose demonstrations helped lead to the review, praised the recommendations but said more of them need to be implemented now.
"This is really only a first step — there is a lot of work to be done," said Pascale Diverlus.
In a statement, the SIU's Director Tony Loparco said that while the oversight body still needs time to review the report thoroughly, it is "committing the SIU to take the steps required to implement the recommendations that may be legislated." The report comes after months of public consultations that heard from some 1,500 people as well as meetings with the heads of police forces across the province.
The review began after activist groups like Black Lives Matter demanded an overhaul of the SIU in the wake of several deadly encounters between police and black men in Toronto, including the fatal shooting of Andrew Loku.
