The head of Canada’s national police force says it’s clear her officers could improve Indigenous relations and is promising improvements.
RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki is testifying at the national inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls in Regina.
Lucki says the RCMP has made changes to its cadet training curriculum to include more Indigenous material.
One of the additions includes a blanket exercise in which cadets are taught to better understand the different issues facing Indigenous people.
That program has been introduced over the last four to six months.
Lucki became the RCMP’s new commissioner in April and is the first commissioner from the Mounties to be a witness at the inquiry.
