Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says a first ministers' declaration condemning racism didn't mention systemic discrimination because not all the premiers would agree. The statement released Thursday says firmly that all 14 first ministers oppose racism and will drive the governments they lead to fight it. But the statement doesn't talk about the way some people are denied opportunities because of the way systems or programs are designed, without overt expressions of bigotry. (The Canadian Press)
