He said, “I hear you, and I see you, as you call out systemic discrimination, racism, and unconscious bias. As you call for action and as you call for it now.”

Trudeau defended his actions saying it was important for him to be there and many efforts were made to wear masks and to continue social distancing.

Trudeau also saying Monday he spoke with Commissioner Brenda Lucki of the RCMP where he was assured the Commissioner will use all available tools to take quick and solid actions.

He discussed the adoption of body cameras as well for police, saying he is committing to raising this with the provinces this week so Canada can move forward as quickly as possible on implementations.
