It has recently been brought back into the light, Racism by Real Estate across Canada. Henry Wu a historian from the University of British Columbia, recounts of his discrimination when trying to buy his home in West Vancouver. The land title states, ” No person of African or Asiatic race of African or Asiatic descent (except servants of the occupier of the premises in residence, shall reside or be allowed to remain on the premises.”
This land clause also appears in the 1920’s Victoria Park, which is currently the Calgary stampede grounds, 1945 Broadview and O’Connor, Toronto, no Jews or persons of objectional nationality. Recently in 2019 Saint-Jean-Sur-Richelieu, Quebec, same clause!
This is striking language though silently mentioned, what are your views?
Hope and Solution!
