BLAC Submissions on Bill 161

Jun 22, 2020

BLAC is concerned that Bill 161, Smarter and Stronger Justice Act, 2020 proposes to change LAO’s core mandate of promoting access to justice for low-income Ontario residents. At this critical time, BLAC believes that this will have a negative impact on the Black community and will create a further crisis of access to justice that reinforces existing inequities. This seems to be further evidence of the failure of our government to meaningfully understand and address anti-Black racism and its deleterious impact on the Black community and all other vulnerable Ontarians.
