'It keeps happening': Black Montrealer alleges racial profiling after traffic stop

MONTREAL -- A Montreal man isn’t even done going through a police ethics and human rights complaint with Montreal police over alleged racial profiling and he’s already onto his second one.

At around 5:15 p.m. on April 9, Wayne King, a father of four, said he was followed by Montreal police (SPVM) while driving alone in a rented BMW X1 SUV just before returning it to the Enterprise in Cote-des-Neiges.

After filling up the car with gas, he noticed a police cruiser nearby had begun following him for about 1 kilometre before he was pulled over on De la Savane Street. He said a male and female officer came to his vehicle to ask for documentation and were doing a random “spot check.”
