Renu Mandhane: Ontario’s chief human rights commissioner
So episode 51 – a new record. But you know that right? Because you subscribe to the show on iTunes and have already rated and reviewed the podcast- right? You should.
Renu Mundane and the Human Rights Commission have been a leading voice against the deeply troubling practices of solitary confinement and racial profiling.
Mandhane and the Commission exposed the horrific case of Adam Capay – a young native man who spend over 4 years in solitary confinement. They were also instrumental in the Ottawa Police Services’ Traffic Stop Race Data Project – which showed that the Ottawa police were stopping visible minorities at a disproportional rate (and for no reason).
Mandhane is articulate, passionate, intelegent, and a fierce advocate – in other words our kind of people.
We also have some new art – it is still new because it is way easier to just copy and past this section each week – from an awesome young designer Parker Mazerolle – serious he is crazy good – go check out his work.
