The CBC article discusses a Canada-wide survey which shows that “one in five Canadians experiences discrimination regularly or occasionally.”

There are a number of people mentioned in the article whose “personal circumstances” affect how others view their knowledge:

  • A professor at a Canadian university who is of Jamaican descent and whose son experienced racism
  • A teacher who told a student that “black history was not Canadian history.”
  • a woman from a First Nations community (Kwakwaka’wakw Nation) who might have a somewhat different view of racism in Canada than someone who is part of an immigrant community.
  • Although it is not discussed in the article, a person involved in the construction of the survey would also have a unique and relevant perspective.
