Did the media pull together to decide, or did each media outlet resolve on its own not to cover Friday afternoon’s demonstration in front of the CBC’s Halifax office? Judy Haiven on the persistent whiteness of the CBC.

We do have an exceptionally low percentage of women on council, but in keeping with many other cities we also have a low percentage of Black, Brown or Indigenous councilors. Halifax has no noticeably disabled councillors. All this is to say that when you cast your ballot in 25 days, think about equity.

Judy HAiven: The Orwellian reality is that five people did not survive their “wellness check” carried out by police. There is no coincidence here: The police shot the five because of their race and because they could do so.
