Compelling report must end harmful carding practice by police: Opinion

THE TORONTO STAR

Peter Rosenthal, an adjunct professor of law and professor emeritus of mathematics at the University of Toronto, argues that a report released in March should “immediately end carding.” U of T criminologists Rosemary Gartner and Anthony Doob presented their findings on street checks back in March, concluding that evidence of any benefit is “substantially outweighed by convincing evidence of the harm of such practices.” Rosenthal argues the Toronto Police Services Board is ignoring the report, paid for and commissioned by the board itself.
