Sunday, January 02, 2005 - Politician's comments criticized as racist

Well, I haven't been particularly productive in contributing to my blog. December is a month of many distractions! I hope all of my readers enjoyed a terrific Christmas - and I wish you all the best in the New Year.

Now it seems that one of our city councillors has already hit a spot of PR trouble. Scarborough councillor Mike Del Grande is in a spot of hot water for stating that "white people" are moving out of his ward. See the following link for the story in The Toronto Star. - Politician's comments criticized as racist

Del Grande is being taking to task by members of the NDP cabal. However, how can he be at fault promulgating information that is collected by Statistics Canada, analysed by Toronto's Urban Development Services department, and published in detail on the City of Toronto's website. For example, here are statistics for uber-socialist Janet Davis's ward:

Ward 31 Ethnocultural statistics

If Del Grande is racist, so are Statistics Canada and the City of Toronto.
