These can be the Coalition’s objectives or recommendations – link to Full list of Recommendations), 3- State any relevant or related work you or your organization are currently doing that align with that of the Coalition’s. 4- Conclude by reiterating your support and summarizing why your support matters! Women do not feel safe with a misogynist as the head of a police institution who has failed his responsibility to keep all of us safe.
We believe that our society has an accountability to work together to avert such deaths from ever happening again. Anything short of this constitutes an acceptance and willingness on the part of the OPS and OPA of institutionalized misogyny and racism. The Justice for Abdirahman Coalition and a group of leading feminist activists are calling on the immediate resignation and termination of Matt Skof, President of the Ottawa Police Association for his alleged misogynistic comments to a woman member of the Coalition. *Photo Credit: All-Nite Images CC BY-SA 2.0 Via Wikimedia Commons. We collectively call on all three levels of governments, the Ottawa Police Service, the Ottawa Police Services Board, and responsible police oversight agencies to: 1- Acknowledge that there is a crisis within the Ottawa Police Services when it comes to how authorities interact with members of racialized communities, and specifically, with those with mental health issues; 2- Strike a task force to examine this crisis, and the disproportionate number of Black men and people with mental health differences that have been killed by police, and to commit to funding relevant programs and legislating policies that address systemic problems in relation to vulnerable and racialized communities; analyze all best practices in community policing, consult with communities, and provide a comprehensive review of police services and an action plan for change, including specific timelines; 3- Respond to the Ontario Human Rights Commission’s assertion that there is “no effective mechanism to hold police accountable for systemic discrimination” and to provide a remedy for this gap; 4- Amend legislation to ensure that the Special Investigations Unit (SIU) provides its reports to the public, until such time that the system has been fully reviewed and overhauled to provide a transparent, effective, and independent civilian oversight and accountability of police; 5- Commit to reassigning police officers who are under investigation for causing death or serious injury to administrative duty, and prohibiting any form of interfacing with community members until the investigation is complete; 6- Fully implement the recommendations made by Ontario’s Ombudsman in the recent report titled “A Matter of Life and Death” and provide regular updates to communities; 7- Create consistent standards across all police services in every province with regards to training in dealing with and responding to individuals with mental health issues, as referenced in the 2013 Mental Health and Criminal Justice Policy Framework by the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health; 8- Require the Special Investigation Unit, the Office of the Independent Police Review Director (OIPRD), Ontario’s Anti-Racism Directorate, the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services, and Statistics Canada to collect and publicly report race-based data on police encounters with civilians, including but not limited to, police use of force; 9- Create a special task force to review all Coroner’s Inquest recommendations made since 2001, and identify key recommendations which require immediate response and implementation; 10- Require all police services in every province to place body cameras, as well as cameras in police vehicles.
As someone who values the lives of all people I am greatly concerned at the recent beating death of Abdiraham Abdi by Ottawa police. During his suspension, Skof remained as OPA president, with the confidence of his board of directors. Rassisten, Tyrannen, Wissenschaftsleugner, Frauenfeinde, Waffenlobbyisten, Fremdenhasser, starrsinnige Ignoranten, Tierquäler, Fracking-Befürworter und viele andere. The findings of this report were shocking. He has wholeheartedly failed and has breached the trust of the entire community. We believe that his death could and should have been prevented.
Mr. Skof, as head of the OPA, represents members of the Ottawa Police Service, excluding senior officers. As a coalition of groups representing a diversity of women's voices across this city we are demanding the following: This issue is only one of many troubling problems the Coalition and its partners are fighting against.
We urge all Canadians to join us in demanding an end to the culture of institutionalized racism and misogyny in our city. For more information about the Justice for Abdirahman Coalition, visit our website. This recent example follows a pattern of Mr. Skof’s disparaging comments about racialized political leaders and police officers in our city. This violence and mistreatment must stop.

We are even more deeply concerned given the history of sexual violence within the OPS, including in the last three years, 14 women officers have reported sexual harassment or assault and at least 4 OPS cases in front of the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal in the last two years allege racial discrimination.

This death was preventable and unnecessary and highlights problems within the Ottawa police force.
