Watchdog completes probe of RCMP treatment of B.C.'s indigenous women


The civilian watchdog that oversees the RCMP has completed its investigation into the force’s treatment of indigenous women and girls in northern British Columbia – a probe launched more than two years ago in response to a human-rights report that detailed allegations including excessive use of force, rape and mishandling of missing-persons reports.

The Civilian Review and Complaints Commission for the RCMP will send its interim report to the federal force for review in the next few weeks, spokesman Tim Cogan told The Globe and Mail. The RCMP will then submit their response for inclusion in the commission’s final report, which will be publicly released.
