Canadian media shows maturity in covering race during pandemic

Broadcaster CTV’s W5 investigative news program shows maturity in its ability to cover race and racialization within the Canadian context, with its “Virus of Hate” report, in November 2020. W5 gained an ignominious reputation among Chinese Canadians, after it misrepresented the community with its “Campus Giveaway” report, and gave rise to the establishment of the Chinese National Council for Social Justice. 

Canada had a higher number of anti-Asian racism reports per capita, when compared to the United States.
