Montreal police gave no comment on a video circulating on social media showing a violent intervention between one man and several officers on Saturday at Jeanne-Mance Park downtown.

The video shows several officers pinning the man to the ground while one officer holds the man in a chokehold and punches him several times in the head. Witnesses are heard in the video saying the police officers were choking the man.

Hamilton police officer charged with sexual assault following SIU investigation

A Hamilton police officer has been charged with sexual assault causing bodily harm following an investigation by Ontario's police watchdog.

The Special Investigations Unit (SIU) was contacted by Hamilton police on Nov. 7 following a complaint alleging a man had been sexually assaulted the day before, the unit said in a release.

On Wednesday, the SIU announced Const. Ryan Cole has been charged with one count of sexual assault causing bodily harm.

Hamilton Police Service said Cole is a six-year member and the charge is related to an on-duty incident in November 2020.

The charge stemmed from an arrest and "an interaction that occurred while this individual was in police custody," according to the union representing the city's officers.

The Hamilton Police Association said it's "committed to supporting" Cole as the court process progresses.

The officer has been placed on administrative duties and has no contact with the public, the police service said in a release.

Cole was arrested Wednesday and released with conditions including that he not associate with any witnesses or carry a firearm, said the SIU.

He's scheduled to appear in court in Hamilton on May 3.

A video of Guelph police officers forcefully arresting a 64-year-old man has gone viral after entertainment channel 6ixbuzztv posted it on Instagram.

The caption on the post credits Guelph’s Mercury Tribune for the video and reads “Super unnecessary. Posting for awareness.”

In the video, an officer is seen struggling with the man as he tries to fight back on the doorstep of a home. The officer hits him in the face a few times while the man grabs the officer by the leg. A second officer comes in to assist and is heard saying “stop resisting.” After some struggle, the man is turned over on his stomach and dragged inside the home a few steps while both officers try to place him in handcuffs.

New 'statement to police' card for Indigenous people released in Alberta

An Edmonton non-profit has created a new wallet-sized card to help Indigenous people know their rights if stopped by police in Alberta.

The statement to police card created by the Native Counselling Services of Alberta (NCSA) provides a list of people's rights and a paragraph that can be read to police. It also lists the organization's contact information.

Staff say the card is to help Indigenous people invoke their rights.

"This is basically to help, especially in interactions with the police where it's potentially a crisis, or you get flustered or caught off guard, to just have what you need to say there, so police also know that there are responsibilities on both sides," said Daena Crosby, director of legal education, media and research with NCSA.

"We tried to make it as easy as possible."

The NCSA offered a slightly different version of the card previously, and the new iteration of the free card was started shortly after the provincial government banned the practice of carding by police last November and imposed new rules on street checks.

"This is an NCSA-specific project so it is focused on Indigenous communities themselves but with Black Lives Matter and the conviction yesterday for George Floyd's murder, this information is paramount to all people, all Canadians. Everyone has the right to know what their legal rights are," said Crosby.

"It's just getting access to that information that's a challenge and having the tools the people need to be able to keep themselves alert to what their rights are and also safe in those interactions as well."

"Exclusion of evidence in criminal cases is governed by a section of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms that says evidence should be kept out of a trial if allowing it in might bring the justice system into disrepute.

The Supreme Court of Canada has said exclusion is "not a remedy for police misconduct" and not a means to discipline police.

"There is something particularly concerning about a police policy of deliberate non-compliance with mandated requirements due to the unilateral prioritization of their preferred investigative methods over following the law," Masuhara wrote."
