Almost half of Canadians feel racism on the rise: Survey


Multicultural hatreds promoted in Canada
- Dick Field Tuesday, August 9, 2011

How often I have tried to explain this to some naive person who writes or tells me, “Oh you don’t know what it’s like to be a woman, a black person or an Italian etc. coming to Canada or living here. How can you say we are all equal because I have been discriminated against again and again in jobs and promotions and been called nasty names.
The truth is that the vast majority of Canadians expect newcomers to respect the laws and culture they came to join. Immigrants are not welcome to impose upon us their peculiar alien laws, practices and anti-Canadian mores. Just ask the average Canadian that has had a couple of beers what is expected of immigrants and he or she will tell you bluntly that:

“I don’t care where they come from so long as they join with us, work hard and help build our country and if they can’t do that, then send them back to wherever they came from.” That’s what new immigrants swore to do when they took the oath of allegiance and that’s what we expect of them.

Court in uproar over racism sentence
Published On Sat Feb 13 2010

Emotions erupted in the Newmarket courthouse Friday as a Sutton man was sentenced to two years less a day in jail for a racist attack on Asian anglers, and one of the victims – upset at the light sentence – wound up handcuffed and arrested.

Justice Alfred Stong found that Trevor Middleton, 23, was motivated partly by racism when he and three truckloads of Georgina Township youths shoved Ruohang Liu, 24, and Charles Hogan, 24, into Lake Simcoe early in the morning of Sept. 16, 2007, in the type of attack some locals referred to as "Nip-" or "Nipper-tipping." One of their friends was left with permanent brain damage in the attack.

Racism alive in Canada
Published on April 13, 2010
Staff ~ The Coaster

If you thought racism was dead in Canada, you were sadly mistaken. The CBC National News recently carried an item that clearly demonstrated that racism and hatred are very much alive in our country.

The event involved an interracial couple who live in Hant's County, Nova Scotia.

After returning home one evening from a relative's birthday party, the couple, and their children, had retired for the night when they were suddenly awakened by a loud noise. An individual or individuals had placed a cross in the yard with a rope attached and had set the cross on fire.
