Toronto-based journalist Desmond Cole documents his experiences with racism in the Toronto Life article “The Skin I’m In: I’ve been interrogated by police more than 50 times—all because I’m black.” The cover story pushed the discussion of racial profiling, beneath the banner of "carding," into the public eye once again. While Toronto Mayor John Tory vowed to eliminate the Canadian Charter-violating policy, he later reneged and, along with Premier Kathleen Wynne and Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders, supported the racist policy.
