Take a look at the historical record […]

Brown man doesn’t smile in picture, is accused of barbaric cultural practices

He is being accused of what Canadian legislation now defines as Barbaric Cultural Practices because of what he looks like and people are uncomfortable with the clothes his wife chooses to wear.

Be honest: when you hear “barbaric cultural practices”, which culture comes to mind?

A brown man who says he’s a Muslim rapes a woman.

A white man who says he’s an Atheist or a Christian rapes a woman.

But only one of them needs a tip line.

I’d be more interested in reading pieces about Canada in the New York Times if they weren’t written by Canadians

Conflict isn’t boring

White Supremacy is Not a Black Problem

Despite the appalling lack of diverse representation in our politics and business, and overrepresentation of people of colour in our penal system, Canada is especially susceptible to the myth that we have outgrown racism.

Journalism 2015

So yesterday, 241 people at CBC stations across the country, including a few I know, were told their jobs are “redundant”. That brings the total for this year alone to 1,400 cut jobs. I remember when I started at CBC. We had tens of millions more in our budget. We had a robust slate of […]

Heroes of history
