joly: Joly said the government won't run broad consultations on racism, opting instead to speak with different stakeholders about spending on programs outlined in the budget, according to National Observer. Previous efforts to talk about racism have not gone well. The Liberals will soon launch small-scale consultations on a national anti-racism strategy promised in February's budget. ; Canadian Heritage Minister Melanie Joly, who will oversee the work, said the government wants to find real solutions to real problems, particularly on fundamental rights and access to justice and jobs. Concerns about free speech forced their way into discussions around a Liberal MP's motion condemning Islamophobia. The Liberals are now looking to avoid the same pitfalls. Similarly, the Quebec government's plan to consult on systemic racism was met with objections that forced the province to tone down its plans. (www.immigrantscanada.com). As reported in the news.
