154. Race and Detention in R v Le (with Omar Ha-Redeye)
R v Le was a crucial development in the analysis of detention under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. In R v Le, 2019 SCC 34, the Supreme Court incorporated the experience of racialized persons experience in interactions with law enforcement into the analysis of psychological detention.
In this episode, host Lewis Waring interviews Omar Ha-Redeye, a Toronto- and Durham-based lawyer and an Adjunct Professor at the Lincoln Alexander School of Law at Ryerson University. Professor Ha-Redeye discusses the ways that R v Le responded to trends in Canadian and global understandings of racial discrimination, and offers listeners a look forward into the future of the intersection of race and policing in Canada.
