Activists demand accountability after Toronto Black woman fell off the balcony and died while police were inside her apartment


<b>Activists demand accountability after Toronto Black woman fell off the balcony and died while police were inside her apartment</b>The tragic death of 29-year-old Regis Korchinski-Paquet happened days after a Black man, George Floyd, was choked to death by a police officer in Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States.
On Twitter, the hashtag #JusticeForRegis is trending across Canada. Family members and witnesses, including the young woman's mother, brother and cousin, have since spoken out via social media to say that they believe Toronto Police officers pushed or threw Korchinski-Paquet from the balcony. "They don't like us. It's evident that they don't like us. No one likes Black people," said Akiem Morris, an acquaintance of the victim.
