Rooting out white supremacy in the police and armed forces

On Wednesday, we watched the scenes from Washington, D.C., horrified and angry as we compared the police responses to Black Lives Matter protests over the summer and to any other protest. We are not shocked but we are angry. 

Could something similar happen in Canada as hate groups and the far right continue to grow and organize here and politicians continue to appeal to them? Racism in law enforcement and the armed forces has proven deadly countless times and seems embedded in the very fibre of these institutions.
