Abacus Data conducted a survey for City News which found that almost two-thirds of Canadians believe systemic racism exists in the country.

But what do they mean when they say systemic or institutional racism?

True North’s Sam Eskenasi examines the data and whether or not Canada is a systemically or institutionally racist country.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
