The only people who were definitely had no interest in the Race Against Racism were racists and criminals running from the law.
As relations between law enforcement and the public keep fraying and breaking down in so many jurisdictions across North America, it is heartening to note that such is not the case in Mississauga. In fact many believe that the public holds a more or less favorable view of the police.
The Peel Regional Police has for the past 15 years gone that extra mile trying to bridge the gap between the force and its large and growing ethnic population it polices. It seems to be working because as many now believe Peel Police has a good and working relationship with the public.
Hundreds of people from all ethnicities and walks of life decided to walk or run the five-kilometers at Mississauga Valley Park.
What’s more is that it turned out to be the perfect opportunity for participants to get to know each other and talk to the men in uniform. There were many great conversations happening over lunch and refreshments following the 5K walk/run.
Peel Const. Mandip Bhamber was thrilled with the turnout. “It’s a great way for different cultures to get together and have a good time,” he said.
