Opinion: Racism targeting people of colour and immigrants is a threat to our collective health

As we’ve witnessed in this pandemic, fear and ignorance are the ultimate risk to public health. Misinformation and confusion spawn a chaotic response — whether it’s public policy or panic buying.

Our vision at the ICC keeps in mind that eventually Canada’s net population growth will be entirely attributable to immigration. By creating opportunities for new Canadian citizens to participate fully in our cultural and political life, we will be able to continue to nurture the kind of society we have worked so hard to create: public education, cultural activities, parks, and medical care.— The Right Honourable Adrienne Clarkson
