Public consultation excludes English-speakers: Niemi

Fo Niemi says in a Gazette op-ed that the process for public consultation on systemic racism in Montreal has excluded speakers of English who “represent a significant portion of the city’s residents, taxpayers and voters. Those English-speakers of Asian, South Asian, black, Middle Eastern, Indigenous and other minority backgrounds, who can easily number half a million, encounter double or triple obstacles in employment in the public and private sectors in Montreal, despite being functionally bilingual.”
