First Nation chief calls for dialogue to end racism

A First Nation chief in Northern Ontario says Canadians don’t like to admit it, but racism is alive and well in this country.  And Isadore Day, the head of the Serpent River First Nation, says it’s time there was a national dialogue to end racism.  Day says racism hits all ethnic groups and all countries although we like to think it only exists in the U.S.   Day says in fact slavery existed in Canada for 150 years and to this day Afro-Canadians are subjected to racism.  He says another example is the federal government’s unwillingness to examine why so many Aboriginal women have been murdered or are missing.
