Re: Favouritism not best way to fight racism, Chris KempJackson, Sept. 29
Congratulations to Chris Kemp- Jackson for a well- written article. Governments no longer view Canadians as individuals but as members of a specific group. Policies are aimed at the group and not at the person. Mr. Kemp- Jackson is correct to say that if an institution refused to give someone a loan because of the colour of his or her skin, that institution should be held accountable. It can be an individual problem, not a group problem. By providing special treatment to certain groups, governments do not promote harmony in the community but, in fact, encourage disharmony.
