Racial profiling is an epidemic in Canada. Experts recognize racial profiling’s limitations as a policing tool. Social science researchers and lawyers suggest that racial profiling is an affront to our human rights and dignity. Much more importantly, it is unconstitutional and contrary to our shared values rooted in pluralism and fundamental freedoms. Law enforcement officials and the public nonetheless seem prepared to look past these concerns because it is necessary to protect the public from serious harm.
