Correctional Services Ontario Hosts Lets Hate Whitey Conference

TORONTO – A group of white, Ontario correctional officers was barred from attending a government conference on anti-racism and diversity in the workplace, documents obtained by the Toronto Sun show.

The “Race Matters” conference to address “human rights and group development” was held three years ago at Toronto’s Don Jail for non-Caucasian officers only, according to a grievance filed by their union.

The conference sparked a backlash from white officers, according to the documents, who alleged the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services discriminated against them because they weren’t part of an identifiable ethnic group.
