The recent census data is out. I’m sitting on my living room floor with the newspaper spread out all around me. There is so much I want to write about, I think I will have to dedicate a few posts to this topic.
For today, two first impressions to provide some food for thought:
– It strikes me as interesting that under the big bold title of “Who We Are”, the Toronto Star article has photos of people they interviewed who represent the 13 ethnic origins that 22 million people in Canada identify with. Of these photos, only 2 are of people of colour. Hmmm…
– Markham is the most diverse city in Canada where 72.3 percent of the population are visible minorities…which makes me wonder why we are still using the term visible minority? (that’s a rhetorical wondering of course. More on that in another blog)
