Re: “Law enforcement’s got a racism problem, and it’s set to get worse,” (The Hill Times, March 4, p. 11). The recent column by Erica Ifill brings back memories, in my retirement. I cannot help but go back in time to when the RCMP took groundbreaking leadership in the overall race relations issue. Yes, we can learn from history. I was privileged to be working in Canadian Heritage–Multiculturalism and Race Relations, assigned the dossier of liaison with the RCMP to address intercultural, inter-racial, and inter-religious relations. What was most revealing was that the RCMP was prepared to address these related issues as “one package,” to be comprehensive and effective in response to underlying race relations.
