Several Canadian institutions have recently issued statements and/or taken action to address racist comments and posts from members of their community. Nova Scotia Community College announced that is investigating an incident in the classroom that involved “racist language used by a member of the community” who is now “no longer with the College.” Mount Allison University has initiated its internal review processes after receiving complaints about a faculty member’s blog. The leaders of Brescia University College, Fanshawe College, Huron University College, King’s University College, and Western University also issued a joint statement against acts of racism in the city following an incident involving a restaurant in London.
