Abstract

The issue of police carding has received very little judicial attention in Canadian cases. In this case, the trial judge found that the carding of the accused was unconstitutional and constituted racial profiling. The trial judge also found that the police officer's testimony involved "several fabrications ... fed to the court..." It is yet another recent judicial finding of police perjury involving the Toronto Police Service.

Keywords: Carding, Racial Profiling, Police Perjury, Canada, Criminal Procedure, Charter of Rights and Freedoms
