Mainstreet archives: Rodney Small was 'RDS' in landmark Supreme Court of Canada case
A quarter century ago, Rodney Small was at the heart of a landmark decision about racism and policing. On the twentieth anniversary, in 2017, Rodney told Mainstreet's producer Alex Mason his story. His lawyer, the late Rocky Jones, says of Rodney in his autobiography: "This young kid had no idea... how significant this was, around this really simple thing of him confronting a cop. R.D.S., Rodney Small, he is the hero of this story."
