Misinformation, disinformation, gaslighting, all serve to polarize people, to distract and confuse. Now that we are a breath away from the writ dropping, the storm clouds are gathering.

On Friday Sept. 6, The Vancouver Sun and Vancouver Province published an opinion piece on their websites titled: "Mark Hecht: Ethnic diversity harms a country's social trust, economic well-being, argues professor."

But Mark Hecht is an instructor, not a professor; a commentator, not an expert. And that's the least of the problems with his piece. He's a geography instructor at Calgary's Mount Royal University. (The newspapers corrected the headline when they published the article in the weekend print edition.)
