Against profiling based on identity

Printer-friendly version
Resolution number: 
December 2001
  1. Security concerns now require more intensive examinations of travellers at borders;
  2. Profiling based on identity has been used in the past;
  3. Profiling based on identity is highly demeaning for those involved and discriminatory;
  4. A serious public concern warrants the necessary costs and a broader sharing of the inconveniences;
Therefore be it resolved: 

That the CCR urge the government of Canada not to use profiling based on identity for border examinations and to ensure on-discrimination, by, if necessary, examining whole travelling populations.
