Hub Dialogue

But who will police the anti-racism consultants? The Hub Roundtable digs into the ‘inevitable trouble’ of our identity obsession

Minister of Housing and Diversity and Inclusion Ahmed Hussen speaks during a news conference on the government’s work to combat Islamophobia, on the one-year anniversary of the vehicle attack on the Afzaal family in London, Ont., in the foyer of the House of Commons in Ottawa, on Monday, June 6, 2022.

This week’s Hub Dialogue Roundtable episode focuses on extremist behaviour hitting the headlines this week. First, an anti-racism consultant’s racist tweets were enough to get a government anti-racism project axed. Then, the Roundtable touches on Pierre Poilievre’s handshake with a white supremacist at a meet-and-greet.

Also, what are we to make of Canada’s strategy for China and the strange delay in appointing an ambassador to the country? And finally, stick around for a bonus interview conducted by Hub reporter Geoff Russ, who talks to National Post columnist Sabrina Maddeaux about our widening gender divide.
