Re: “In wake of blackface scandal, actual Black Canadians left in of out-of-cold cabinet,” (The Hill Times, Nov. 27, by Erica Ifill). I had callback memories when I read The Hill Times recent opinion column by Ms. Ifill. The example she cited, the missed opportunity to appoint Liberal MP Greg Ferguson to a cabinet position. This concern for employment equity with visible minorities so reminds me of the time when, as a visible minority of East Indian origin, I was readily hired by Canadian Heritage’s Multiculturalism and Race Relations to address the arrival of South East Asian refugees or the “boat people” in Montreal.
