Backlash following Quebec’s decision to appeal racial profiling ruling

A decision by the Quebec government to appeal a racial profiling ruling has sent shock waves through racialized communities and among equal-rights advocates. The government is appealing a Quebec Superior Court ruling that would have precluded police officers from randomly pulling over drivers without just cause. Some say the decision sends the wrong message to visible minorities, while allowing officers to continue pulling over people without any justification.Global's Tim Sargeant reports.
