OTTAWA — Today, the Chinese Canadian National Council Toronto Chapter (CCNCTO) and Project 1907 released a scathing report, “Another Year: Anti-Asian Racism Across Canada Two Years Into the Covid-19 Pandemic”. The report confirms a recent Statistics Canada analysis of the juristat article of the Police-Reported Hate Crime 2020 which showed a staggering increase of anti-Asian racism and other forms of hate and discrimination since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
NDP Critic for Canadian Heritage Peter Julian issued the following statement:
"It has come to our attention that a consultant for a federally funded anti-racism project has a disturbing track record of spewing hate speech online against Jewish and francophone communities. This is completely unacceptable. We call on the Minister of Heritage to take drastic action and terminate his contract.
