Vancouver Sun | As multicultural as Canada may be, it appears we are not immune to racism.
According to a new survey conducted in B.C., 82 per cent of visible minorities say they have experienced prejudice or some form of discrimination, while 56 per cent of all respondents reported having overheard racist comments.
