CBC excludes First Nations and Visible Minorities in Political Panels

CBC boasts that Canada's "most-watched political panel" is "Chantal Hébert, Andrew Coyne, and Bruce Anderson, with CBC News chief correspondent Peter Mansbridge."

When are the producers of CBC's The National with Peter Mansbridge going to appreciate that there are many Canadians who also have critical insights to share on national and parliamentary politics, who are of First Nations and visible minority backgrounds?  Doesn't the producers of CBC The National understand that Canada is not simply a "bicultural society" of "two founding nations"?  CBC's apparent exclusion of First Nations and visible minorties from its "most watched panel" is consistent with Canadian institutionalized racism.

Watch the video below of its "most watched panel". In the meantime, would you like to advertise in The Canadian National Newspaper?

I support the CBC.  But, as a public broadcaster, our CBC has an ethical obligation to be more inclusive in the choosing of  political commentators.
