Everything is more politically correct and crazier in Canada than even Kalifornication. Witness the recent decision by the dizzy diverse Ontario police to stop identifying the gender committing crimes:
“The Ontario Provincial Police won’t be publishing the “gender” of those accused of crimes or of their alleged victims because of privacy concerns and the “need to be progressive,” a spokesperson announced at a Monday press conference. The policy change took effect in May after the force reviewed the Police Services Act, the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, and the Ontario Human Rights Code, Sgt. Carolle Dionne told reporters. “When we were reviewing our standard operating procedures, we realized we were including information that was not permissible for us to release,” she said, as quoted in the CBC. “We have a lot of individuals who identify as male but actually are female, or vice versa. That’s one of the reasons. Also, we want to respect the wishes of individuals,” added Dionne. The OPP then decided to exclude “gender” information in media releases to be cautious about privacy and “be progressive in the change of times,” Dionne said, as quoted by Canadian Press. While a name in a media release is often gender-specific, when the accused’s gender is not readily apparent, the OPP now won’t give out that information when asked, the CBC reported.
“We will now say ‘the individual’ or ‘the accused,’ and not use gender-specific pronouns,” Dionne explained. “In the case of a suspect where we need to be more specific, we will say ‘appears to be a female’ or ‘appears to be a male,’” she added. Other personal information on the accused — name, age and hometown — will be released publicly, Dionne told reporters. Moreover, it will be necessary sometimes to temporarily publish an individual’s gender, such as when police are trying to identify a suspect, or seeking a missing person, she said. “If I’m looking for somebody, a suspect, and I have descriptors from witnesses that believe they saw a male conduct an armed robbery and he was armed and dangerous or may have had a firearm, then that person would be identified as a male,” said Dionne, as quoted in GlobalNews. But any gender references will be deleted after charges are laid, she said.
“The focus is about an individual being charged in the courts as a result of their illegal activity. For example, an impaired driver -- it doesn't matter that it was a male or a female ... the gender didn't really play a role in there,” Dionne said, as reported by Canadian Press. The OPP will still collect data on gender for annual crime statistics, and the information will be based on the gender listed on person’s government-issued ID, reported Global News. “When charging somebody that identifies as a female and let’s say their driver’s licenses say male, then it’s going to be compiled as a male,” Dionne told reporters. Gwen Landolt, a lawyer and vice president of conservative advocacy group REAL Women of Canada, blasted the OPP policy as self-serving “utter rank foolishness” and a potential risk to public safety. The sex of an alleged perpetrator is “highly relevant, whether it’s sexual assault or drunk driving,” Landolt told LifeSiteNews. “When an offense has occurred, the public should be aware of all the facts,” she said. The OPP policy “is a danger to the public, and that’s one of the scandals that’s going on with all this so-called progressive” agenda.”
One could be forgiven for having thought that under the present hyper-politically correct anti-white male regime, the gender of criminals would be relevant propaganda, since only white males do bad things. Go figure, maybe things are too hard to sweep under the racial carpet now.
