Ontario axes anti-racism subcommittees - 2018-09-20
Just before Rosh Hashanah, Bernie Farber received a phone call telling him his services were no longer required.
The call was from Ontario's recently installed Progressive Conservative government, which informed Farber, the former CEO of Canadian Jewish Congress, that the committee he co-chaired on how to battle anti-Semitism was being disbanded.
Others serving on the committee received the same call. So, presumably, did those on the three other subcommittees of Ontario's Anti-Racism Directorate, who were tasked with providing advice on eliminating racism directed at black people, indigenous people and Muslims.
