Indigenous university students more likely to be stopped by police, survey says


Indigenous university students in Saskatoon and Regina are 1.6 times more likely to be stopped by police on the street compared to non-indigenous students, according to a new survey aimed at gathering data on racial profiling in the prairie provinces.

Discourse Media surveyed 850 students in Saskatoon, Regina and Winnipeg about their experience with police as part of a larger collaboration with a Maclean’s magazine article published this week that investigates the incarceration rates of indigenous people. The researchers set out to investigate the large amount of anecdotal evidence of racial profiling.
