Liberal bill proposes to establish new review and complaints commission for federal law enforcement
Nov 14, 2022
A dedicated, independent watchdog for the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) can’t come quick enough for residents of the Mohawk community of Akwesasne, the community’s grand chief says.
Abram Benedict estimates his council gets about three to four calls a month from Akwesasne members complaining about CBSA conduct — but under the current system, the only place he can direct them is back to the border guards themselves.
“It’s a perceived conflict,” Benedict told CBC News.
“CBSA is reviewing their own complaints, and really that’s a public confidence matter.”
