Racism puts Canada at risk

Having just read about the deeply offensive actions of Canada’s Immigration Ministry (Note: Really the “Ministry Against Immigration”), I take the anonymous comments on the National Post website as clear evidence that Canada is not immune from possibility of descending into racist nationalism and all the evils that come with it.

“Eternal vigilance is the price of freedom.”

Canadians: We are not being vigilant enough.

I agree that we must be vigilant. Two weeks ago I was on a city bus and witnessed a terrible racist incident. In trying to follow up on the situation (I filled in a witness statement, talked to several managers in the transit system, and left my contact information) I realized that "the system" is more concerned about protecting the individual's right to public transit than protecting the rights and safety of all riders. As a society we must always participate and remain involved so that when these situations arise we send a clear message that racist behaviour will not be tolerated.
