Members of the public took part in the Northern BC outreach and workshop session at the Fire Pit Culture Centre.

The IIO along with CRCC for the RCMP and the BCCLA, came to the Northern Capital to let people know the rights they have when dealing with police.

“I would hope they come back and do follow up workshops, rather than once every five years or so. This should be an ongoing education process, because once people realize these workshops are happening in the city more people will come out.” – Attendee Joe Roberts

The free workshops were also held in both Terrace and Smithers, where the IIO says it generated a positive outcome.
