Leaders of Toronto’s Black Lives Matter movement say they are encouraged by the calling of an inquest into the police shooting death of a mentally challenged black man but say there is still more work to do to combat systemic racism.
Co-founder Sandy Hudson was speaking at a a news conference outside Toronto Police Headquarters Sunday. She said said the inquest into Andrew Loku’s death does signify a strong commitment to address the group’s demands however, more has to be done. The group wants a complete end to “carding”.
