Spying on Indigenous activists: BC Civil Liberties Association wins

January 14, 2022

Union of BC Indian Chiefs – UBCIC congratulates the BC Civil Liberties Association on winning their precedent-setting lawsuit, which resulted in the Federal Court of Canada’s decision that RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki violated her statutory obligations by failing to respond to investigations into claims of Mountie misconduct. This case marks the first time the court has ruled RCMP must be held accountable for providing a timely answer to complaints filed with the force’s civilian watchdog agency, the Civilian Review and Complaints Commission (CRCC).
