RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki joins National Chief Perry Bellegarde to address the ongoing issue of racism and police brutality towards First Nations people, especially in light of the recent killing by police of a First Nations woman, Chantel Moore, in New Brunswick, the use of an RCMP vehicle to run-over and apprehend a man in Nunavut, and the dashcam video showing RCMP officers tackling and beating Athabasca Chipewyan Chief Allan Adam over an expired vehicle license. Commissioner Lucki and the National Chief look at ways to shift racist culture in the force and move forward towards an effective, inclusive, community based form of policing.

Brenda Lucki was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, and joined the RCMP in August 1986. During Commissioner Lucki's career, she has served in Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba, Alberta, Saskatchewan and at the RCMP Academy (Depot Division), as well as on international peacekeeping missions in the former Yugoslavia.
