"Utter corruption and an insult upon injury already to define Taylor and by extension to black people in this region that is journalist and writer Desmond Cole outside Toronto Police headquarters in two thousand seventeen. The focus of his Anger Toronto Police and the Mayor of Toronto John Tory they are demonstrating that the value decorum more than they value our lives so to hell l. with them. All anger ran high around the case of default. Tim Miller on December night in two thousand sixteen then nineteen year old was involved in an altercation with an off-duty police officer officer and his brother. When police arrived on the scene in Whitby Ontario they discovered Fontana Miller badly injured? The officer and his brother went on trial last year. The verdict is expected in April. Both men have pleaded not guilty to aggravated assault. That case is just one of several incidents of violence involving police sanitariums black community profiled and Desmond. Kohl's new book. It's called the skin we're in a year of black resistance and Power Does McColl a former columnist for the Toronto Star. He's written for the Walrus. OREST and Toronto. Life doesn't call joins me now desmond. Good Morning Good Morning. Matt what do we know about what happened. That night between Devante Miller and and those two brothers we know that define tae and two of his friends were walking on a suburban street in with the Ontario late at night. We know that they had some kind of a confrontation with two men who we now know to be. Michael Christian -Tario Michael at the time an off-duty police officer and we know that there was a physical altercation between these brothers and Devante which caused him numerous injuries including the loss of his left eye and The charge aggravated assault against these two officers. Alleges that they did it That's what the trial is supposed to prove. Devante says they he did. He says that they picked up metal pipe at some point or came at him with one at that was what caused the horrible injury to his. I Michael -Tario and Christian -Tario say that they were defending themselves from devante Miller on the night of the incident. Why don't you believe their story for so many reasons? You don't chase someone over one hundred meters down the street at night to defend yourself if you chase somebody and then they end up with the injuries that devante did. I don't look at that a self defense. What's more though there allegation against as that you stealing change from their car so I personally rejecting this idea that a black life is so cheap that if you truly thought that somebody was stealing change from from your car you would chase them and beat them in such a horrible horrible way and you know I also have issue? With the fact that the Durham police came onto the scene found Fontaine underneath one of these men bleeding so badly asking for help and they laid five criminal charges charges on Miller those charges were ultimately dropped by the crown. The Durham police came onto the scene of that crime. Knowing that they were dealing with the police officer that was documented through nine. One one calls else and in my opinion that's why Devante was having those charges laid against him. That's why he was treated as the assailant. When in fact I believe he was the victim? The we contacted the Toronto Police Service And they told us in a statement. This is a quotation as the case is currently before the court. It would be inappropriate for us to comment. Before decision in is rendered by the judge the Durham regional. Police Service told US and again. This is a quotation. This is an active case with the office of the Independent Police Review Director. We are not in a position and to answer any questions. What does this story? And it's one story that yearbook. What is the story? Tell you about what it's like to be black in this country in twenty between it tells me that having a black chief of police having some black police officers is supposed to make us forget about the everyday violence of policing and that the police will go to any length to protect a man even when it appears that he has done. What Michael -Tario in my opinion did to Devante Miller like again he faces charges? I mean th this fun to face charges because define tastes family. Got A lawyer and that lawyer contacted the SL you. Why weren't the people who came on that scene disgusted at the condition that they found devante in? Why did they handcuffed him? How does what happened with Devante Miller and some of the other cases that you outlined in this book compare to incidents of the use of deadly force or a significant force by police in the United States? The difference is that we actually do substantiate media. Work an investigation enquiry. Or even just airing airing let me say of cases in the United States. Define Tate's story got a lot of attention the first week that we found out about it in July of twenty any seventeen The attention went away after that though. Maheshwari Ado in Winnipeg pukekohe along in Montreal who I also spoke about in my book. Camman Abdi in Ottawa. Who there's a chapter about in this book? Do Canadians even know these names. But they can tell you. Eric Garner Mike Brown Tamir Rice. They can tell you who trayvon Martin is suggesting that what's happening here. is as bad as what's happening in the United States. It's not even a worthwhile comparison than for me. To say is as bad or is that is what we do in this country. That's not the question the question is are we better or worse. The question is what is it like to live. There's a black person and when it comes to policing it is hell and it is almost impossible to hold even one police officer to account so yes Michael. -TARIO is on trial. Yes Daniel Muncie on is on trial right now in the killing of the Abbey in Ottawa. James Forsillo shot. Sammy Team Eight Times on a streetcar and he's already paroled. You know to get justice for one cop who takes a life in this country tree is almost impossible. It's when you're living in that kind of a condition where the society will fight so hard to justify killing you getting basic needs met in life getting basic opportunity. Where do we go matt when? That's the struggle that we're starting from. You have talked about how you wanted to confronts then these words Canada's magical thinking when it comes to race what do you mean by that. The magical thinking is that race doesn't operate in Canada. Yeah it's it's not holding anyone back it's not dividing people in terms of the way that their government services operate. I mean these things are false on their face. Of course I mean Justin Trudeau has been Ordered how many times now. By the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal to equalize child welfare funding for first nations kids on reserve. We just know as a fact that all kinds of services for indigenous peoples in this country country are funded at a lower rate the danger of saying that things like the Indian act or the ongoing genocide of indigenous peoples is not real or that black people are just I try to emulate what we see in the United States but we don't really have a struggle here. The danger of that is that there is no real motivation shen than the challenge white supremacy in this country. There's no even need to name it. And that's what was such a privilege of being able to write. This book was was to take one year of journalism in the twenty seventeen and to say I am not going to present this as if I don't know racism operates in my country. I assume that it does. I lived that experience so black people across this country. So let's have a book that gets passed the phony if you want in my opinion the phony questioning and just says this exists. How does it look? How does it feel? How does it sound? That lived. Experience is something that people might have read about in a piece that you wrote in Toronto Life Magazine and you talked about your your experience with karting. Being stopped by police being asked for identification the piece got a lot of attention. He has the effect of that piece in that magazine. In at that time I think it was a big deal because as I say in the book I think a lot of people were surprised to see a black person on the cover of Toronto life and not only on the cover but talking on the cover about police brutality and police surveillance that story got a lot of attention around carting people addressed at the. The mayor ended up in a matter of Toronto. Ended up speaking about it in a way that perhaps he hadn't before that piece came out. What's the state of of carting across the country right now? Well that's a great question. Shen the state of carting today in a place like Halifax is such that. The Halifax Police Department issued a formal apology for carting. Two months ago but continued the practice all the time and as evidence of that a woman just a couple of weeks ago named Santana Rayo was shopping Walmart when she was approached by staff of the store a security guard and a police officer. She was accused of stealing. She was accused of stealing items. That were in her stroller because she has a fifteen month old and a three year old and was putting them in the bottom of the stroll. She put them in the bottom of the stroller. In fact she tried to pay for them in another cashier. WHO said I don't have have a scale? I can't wait. You're grapefruit your your lettuce. She had a grapefruit a lettuce and to lemons for a grapefruit. A lesson to lemons five people approached this woman with her children and a police officer and his other police colleagues ended up jumping on top of her centenario. Suffered a concussion. Centenario Rayo suffered a broken wrist and now she has criminal charges against her. Just like I was saying before. This is a very common police tactic but an important part of that story for me is that Winston Tina radio said. I'm not stealing anything. Look in my stroller. Look in my purse. The police said. Where's your identification? This is the practice that they just told us is that they were apologizing. Practice of the practice of carting the practice of being black people who aren't doing anything in the city of Toronto When Mark Saunders was named the chief of have police there was a lot of attention paid to the fact that he would be the first black chief of police in this large police force? And that was heralded. As a breakthrough. Wasn't I don't know who it was a breakthrough four besides mark. Saunders and I remember. Actually that he himself downplayed at at the time he had this joke about. How being black didn't give him superpowers and the media? Laugh I remember the gallery of the day. He said that people really lapped up that comment. But no one was asking Mark Saunders to have superpowers powers in fact..

An overall feeling of terrible weakness, those were some of the mysterious and troubling symptoms Tronto artist, Jillian Ginza experienced for roughly a decade doctors could not pinpoint what was wrong with her. None of the medications that gave her seem to work little did MS are realized that the answer to what was making her sick lay right in front of her in her studio, Jillian gonzo recently told her story in Toronto life magazine, we reach MS in Toronto. Gillian first of all, how are you? Well, that's terific question on on very well. But I'm trying to think about that right now. As I understand you. I started noticing your health problems when you working on a sculpture called. I man can you tell us about the peace you working on. I was working on a piece made entirely from muscle shelve, I had selected those shells because the strike of the shell of the movement of the shell so beautifully replicated, muffle fiber. It was a lovely pun to make his muscles out of muscles. So I began that piece, but I did start to become ill overtime. And so it just describe how you used these muscle shells. Did you grind them up? They were ground to be thin and shaped it was countless trips back and forth to Chinatown because normally in the grocery stores, the muscles are begged, and I would always be looking for peculiar shells ones that had specific shapes the. If it color, especially looking for the ones that were freaks because I had decided to commit to making the body entirely out of the muscle shows. So the grinding and shaping of the produced a very very fine particle, and I was constantly in full exposure to it. So I was working at venting system, but very very fine dust, it's very sticky. So it would coat my arms, and even though I would try to sort of dust off in the venting system when my would call my hands out. I was loaded in dust, and I would do of course, what a child do. I would wipe them all over my shirt, and then just carry on to my desk with the piece, but you had no reason to believe that the was anything wrong with that. There was any toxic issue with those shells. Right. You dealing with natural materials. Not just that materials. But oh my goodness. Riposte to able to eat it. Surely it must be safe at the beginning. It was more than I lost. My ability. Sleep. I was hyper stimulated and the hyperstimulation had physical manifestations fell. This vomiting all the time. I sweated sweated, so profusely, I was bathing many times day shaking and a no one could understand what had happened to me. I went doctor to doctor to doctor and went for many many months with sleep. I couldn't eat. It was a very bad time. How did you finally come to realize or learn that it was this material was muscle shells that there were poisoning you to be fair to my medical doctors? They did always ask me or you working with anything poisonous. And I would always say to the Ono it's completely natural. So they had assumed they had asked proper questions down that line and predating this poisoning. I also had multiple auto immune conditions. I was all. Already not a well person. So it made it more difficult to make the diagnosis. It did finally occur to one doctor to send me to the environmental health clinic at women's college hospital..

"The Toronto district school board is the behemoth people don't realize the school board is kind of an afterthought in the hierarchy of government institutions, but is like in many ways own sovereign state. In fact, the tedious be has a bigger budget that the entire city of Ottawa. There is a lot of money at stake. Into few years ago that massive institution wasn't complete chaos mysterious payments, hidden contracts, and accusations of harassment. This is the drama unfolding tonight. At the Toronto district school board. It's an organization that summer now describing as a snake pit. Let's bring Dave Trafford investigating it. And navigating through this Toronto life magazine called it a nasty bizarro contemptible. Gob smacking Lee screwed up soap opera in once again. At the center of the action was Spiro Papa Thanasak us and again on paper. He should've had nothing to do with it. Spiro had actually once been a school board trustee in the nineteen nineties. It was the only time he'd held elected office. But now, he was exerting his influence, unofficially. First of all a lot of the individuals who we've learned about throat the whole story suddenly end up with jobs at school board. Angels Coppola's the former head of waste management for the city of Toronto. And the man who had tried to set up a meeting between Spiro and the Caliban mayor was hired as the chief facilities officer. It was a job. He told the globe and mail. He got with some help from Spiro. In some of the former members of the Toronto east hospital board also ended up in high level positions. Trustees would sometimes even hold events in a bar Spiro co-owned and some of the people associated with Spiro began to get contracts with the T DSP the cabbage town youth center, which Spiro was still the head of received two point eight million dollars through a program called focus on youth. This could have been a total coincidence. But the man who was running the program had been one of the board members of the hospital that Spiro had helped elect, and he also says that he is a close friend of Speros. Or take the example of the solar panels. The Toronto district school board was planning on making the largest solar procurement ever in Canada. And they wanted to take advantage of the green energy act, and they had this problem that all of the roofs across the board were really rough shape and they needed to replace them. And they didn't have a lot of money. So the plan was to contract a company solar company the become in fix the ruse, and then put solar panels on the roof. They would pay the board by giving them new room. And then they would have the right to sell the energy back to the grid generated by the panels on the team that was awarded the contract Angeles Coppola's decision came down to two companies normally they negotiate with both. But at a meeting Coppola's argued that the board should only negotiate with the smaller company going against the recommendations from a report, the other company ended up being disqualified for a conflict of interest that didn't actually exist. And now the details here get a bit tricky. But with the globe in mail, uncovered is that companies associated with people connected to Spiro through the cabbage town youth center, ended up profiting from the deal..

"I'm Jordan he throwing and this is quite an episode of the big story. So please settle in an enjoy Nick. Kohler is a freelance writer who has worked for Maclean's for the guardian for the globe and mail for several other publications, and the reason we're talking to him today is a long and winding feature in Toronto life magazine, which has everything we just mentioned. So Nick, we're going to start with the lawyer at the center of this story who is gonna XV akili so goal NASA. Vakili is this sorta charming gregarious, energetic woman who in two thousand ten was called to the bar. She was a lawyer got into real estate law instead of seeking work at a big firm. She decides to kind of go freelance, she's a sole proprietor. She moves into office space in this shared kind of law sweet up at young and shepherd in Toronto in Toronto. And she figures. She doesn't like taking direction. She doesn't. Maybe she has a problem with authority, and she goes into business on her own and she figures real estate law. It's easy to get cash. Flow going. Yep. As opposed to other kinds of of law, and she has a number of older lawyers around her working in the shared office space, but no mentor, and certainly no guidance and the lack of adult supervision in this story is a theme that we should keep our I on because one of these older lawyers in the building ends up more or less. Introducing her to this gentleman named Arash massage. Who like goal news is of Iranian extraction. He is a very successful real estate guy. He bills himself historic a guy who puts real estate deals together. And he says to her he often needs legal help. And would she liked to get some work from him? She's leery of this guy. He's got really panel trading. Is he speaks in this kind of rasp? Apparently, it's been said that it has godfather overtones. And so she says I've got enough business. I'll I'll go elsewhere to find my work. So he initially put her off like she was she was not she was not buying it. I she was not buying it. Although it must be said that she was impressed by this guy. A fellow Persian. Who looked like he was doing really well. Right. And you have to remember, this is an impressive guy. He just see him describe him to me this really tall vague man who wears Armani baseball caps to to cover. It said his bald spot, and he's got these really piercing is. But he was also sophisticated Gomez told me that she was impressed by his mastery of the world of real estate, not just in terms of business. But legally he knew what he was doing. And clearly he knew what he wanted in terms of the kind of lawyer to bring on onto his team. But she turns him down initially. She turns him down. But he's persistent. He goes after her in the end, I guess she finds that he resistible, and she starts doing more and more little jobs for a rush massage. What she didn't know a rush Musaga. Although he's never been convicted has had a string of charges across the bay from different police forces what kind of. Charges. So he's it was said that he was involved in cargo theft drugs. Police raids uncovered huge amounts of cash a gun, really, honestly police uniforms, and he was also involved in a mortgage scam allegedly involving a man named curlew molten cruel molten is in jail. Now, he's one of Toronto's most notorious heroin dealers arosh misogyny took this guy for millions of dollars. And he still walking around which is an indication of the kind of company. He may keep he, you know, bilked a drug trafficker, so Vakili doesn't know any of this, and nor do apparently the private lenders that Misaki depends on for cash flow and to invest in the properties that he is dealing with. So explain to me what Vicky Leah's doing and what's happening. It's it's hard to. Say in general terms because the tasks that Vakili gets are really pretty various and the first transaction that maybe of any interest to us involves a property in the bridle path and the bridal path. If you don't know is probably the most exclusive neighborhood in Canada, and one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in in North America. Thinking Drake prince when he lived in Toronto out black. Yeah. People like that expensive expensive homes. That's right..

"It was clear that other large part of the content that was graphic the women in the content, didn't know it's happening. And I mean some of the folders contain photos that aren't graphic content, but they're still photos of these women who very obviously, don't know these photos are being taken, but they're fully closed or in various social settings. So like one of the women I interviewed when in to the police station and was told like, they're obviously photos in your folder that you don't know, I must Suming you don't know are being taken, but there's nothing graphic in them, so she's not a complainant, but this code or called the police. So he. Went to the co, founder of the company, and I think was just really wrestling with what to do because his livelihood was wrapped up in this, like if pitas charged, I don't know what that means for the future of the company. I mean, this is what he's thinking. So presumably he stands to lose his job. And so he went to the co founder and the co founder was unequivocal and they, they made a copy of the folder, the sort of root folder and then took it to the police station and the police raided the house and the women. He wasn't there when they raided it, but the women, his roommates were one of them. The other was at the police station at the time, and she what the saw at the police station, the one woman whose name you. You can't use the police showed her video of her having shower. That's right. As she described it to me, it was sort of an increase in severity are violation. And I think they are trying to confirm that these photos were taken without her consent that. Footage was taken without her consent. But yeah, I think the shower video was the last one that she saw. So she and his other made actually they don't know the full contents of their own folders, but you speak with one woman who found out that there were shots of her. She was having coffee with him. That's right. How do they allege? He got those photos iphone just an iphone. He just went underneath the table and took pictures of her. There's a button on the side of most models of phones that acts as a camera shutter button, and you can operate it with no sound. And that's how so. I mean, in some of these instances technology's not complicated. It's technology we have. We all have access to you just joining us speaking with Catherine Laidlaw who's written story for Toronto, life magazine's November issue. It's called inside the mind of a voyeur and and this is what you to try and find out is that this crime that he has been charged with. Is voyeurism. Right? That's right. Yeah. What are the implications of this crime that has been Pete Ford's been accused of, yeah. I mean, it's a an unusual crime in a number of ways, I guess, on a number of levels, and I think for a long time, the criminal code didn't really know what to do with it. Exactly. But it said it was introduced in two thousand and five in part to keep up with how rapidly technology was changing. I think in terms of the implications we've historically may be thought of this crime as a sort of boys will be boys or maybe not. So not so serious. I've heard referred to as victimless crime. You know, one thing that's been interesting. I've seen it in plots of movies. Now after doing this research o- in sex in the city, Samantha engages in voyeurism and it's it's a comic plotline and in the good place. I don't think we take it seriously, and I think that in speaking with the women who have been affected by this, that is. An agreed societal error and that they are struggling with the effects of trauma. It's still violating it's a betrayal. It's caused trust issues to arise of course, and they're sort of like health and and lifestyle ramifications to this the way that there would be if it was a more physical assault, I think we know how to process that a little bit better. And this is seen as more arms length. So may be less severe the women you spoke with who they describe, how it's changed their lives..
