Although the media seemed shocked at this explicit racial attack and portrayed the attackers as a group of abnormal, twisted deviants, I was not surprised. As an Asian student who is writing her Sociology honours thesis on visible minorities in Canada, I know on a personal and academic level that racism in Canada does exist. Although explicit racial incidents are

    The Perpetuation of Racism in Canada by the Mainstream News Media Canada is internationally renowned for its commitment to multiculturalism. In fact, Canada was the first nation to officially adopt a multicultural policy. However, while the Canadian government has developed a broad-based multicultural mandate that includes a national human rights code and increased penalties for hate-motivated crimes, and most Canadians oppose overt forms of discrimination and hate, racism continues to exist in

    able to come to a halt? Many people in this world wonder If racism will ever stop. According to the “Historical Timeline of Racism in Canada,” (http://www.accesstomedia.org/change/resources/timeline.pdf) racism began in 1698 and has been going on ever since then.

    term labour market problems and seeing them as [those]...who will contribute to the reproduction of wider social and political relations” (p.44). In reflecting on this quotation, I wonder how far Canada has actually come from our historical racialized treatment of minority groups, or whether our racism is simply less overt. Although not all government relations with minority populations necessarily involved this same dynamic, the seeming prevalence of this trend across the numerous different groups

    The issue I wish to study is the impact of heightened racist attacks in Ontario with regard to Police power. The broader theme which it relates to is racism. This issue has been a huge concern in Ontario the last year or so and continues to be an ongoing problem within specific areas of Canada. There has been recent shootings by police on black, latino, and indigenous people who are at the wrong place at the wrong time. These issues will only get worse if not addressed by the government and their

    Do you think Canada is still racist country? In my opinion, I definitely support the fact that Canada is not a racist country anymore. It has changed significantly since its birth; it was once a child, however, it has now grown up and is a role model for other countries. Rewinding back to the early and mid 1900, Canada was known as a racist country; however after WWII, it started to reduce the racism, sexism, and hatred against non-white Races. Canada began to allow multi races such as Chinese, Japanese

    Racism and the Law in Canada In the 1900’s a prominent English scholar Gilbert Murray said: “There is in the world a hierarchy of races;[some] will direct and rule the others, and the lower work of the world will tend in the long run to be done by the lower breeds of men. This we of the ruling colour will no doubt accept as obvious.”(Walker; 1997) It was very true at the time; everywhere you looked you could see that white men assumed all roles of responsibility.  Canada has been fighting a

    World War II, Canada was a racist country. Canadians have stereotyped immigrants for many years, as it is in the human nature. The three main events that showed Canada was a racist country during those years were the Japanese internment camps, where Japanese Canadians were removed from their homes and families and sent to these camps; the St. Louis ship, where 915 Jewish refugees were trying to find a better place to be accepted; and the immigration laws passed after world war II. Canada has caused
