Canada has a racism problem, too

Emma Lamson Edirisinghe,
Canada.

Following the U.S. election, hatred and bigotry have reared its ugly head in Canada, too, where many think racism isn’t a problem like it is in the neighbour to the south. There have been crimes and assaults particularly against Muslim and Jewish people, including a shooting at a Quebec mosque that left six dead — an extremely rare occurrence in Canada due to the strict gun laws. Canadians need to push back against the radical white supremacy that has taken over in the U.S., because it CAN happen here, too.
