News in Review Systemic Racism: Does it Exist in Canada?

After the death of George Floyd under the knee of a police officer in Minneapolis in May 2020, and the global protests that followed, many began to hear the term “systemic racism.” The term suggests that many businesses, institutions and society itself is rife with underlying racism.
