Vancouver Sun's Editorial Standards The Real Danger To Social Trust - 2019-09-13
A century ago, Canada was a "White Man's Country." It was the era of overt race politics and colonialism. Indigenous peoples and Asian Canadians were barred from voting, and immigration from Asia was legally restricted.
Politicians proudly stumped on keeping the borders sealed from non-white immigration, and newspapers, including the Vancouver Sun, peddled copies by brandishing slurs like "heathens," "hordes," and "invaders" in their headlines.
Judging by an opinion piece published by the Sun this past weekend — "Ethnic diversity harms a country's social trust, economic well-being" — it would seem Vancouver's largest daily paper is still bent on stoking racial discord a century later, though now in a softer, more academic tone of voice.
