This morning I saw a news headline about StatsCan releasing 2011 Census data regarding details on the 'makeup' of Canada today. The first thing that popped into my little mind was to, no surprise, go to the Toronto Sun's website: There it was, featured prominently. I was not surprised at all by the wording in the Toronto Sun's article on the subject.
I went to the other three Toronto dailies' respective websites to compare how they all articulated this news. (I'm not even suggesting that the Sun is in the same league as the others.)
See if you can spot which 'opening' -- the first paragraph -- is from the Toronto Sun...
1. "Sustained levels of immigration over the past two decades have literally changed the face of Canada."
2. "The Greater Toronto region is growing more diverse as immigration brings changes to religious practices, languages and the faces of its residents."
3. "For the first time since Confederation, you can pick any five people at random in Canada and at least one of them won't be white."
4. "The debut of Canada’s controversial census replacement survey shows there are more foreign-born people in the country than ever before, at a proportion not seen in almost a century."
Now that I've finished pasting-in the above quotes, I feel this is just too easy. The correct answer will be posted in the first 'comment' to this posting.
Is it possible the Toronto Sun and its faithful readers are racist and prejudiced? (Supply and demand.)
