Toronto is now majority visible minority.

OK. Where’s my free stuff? Community croquet pitches in Rosedale to keep Buffy off the streets!

More than half of Torontonians — 51.5 per cent — identify as visible minorities, recently released data from Canada’s 2016 census shows.

The data shows a marked difference in diversity between the multicultural heartland of the Greater Toronto Area and the rest of the country.

Twenty-nine per cent of Ontarians and 22 per cent of Canadians overall reported being visible minorities, versus a thin majority in the City of Toronto.

The numbers also varied in the Big Smoke. The higher proportions of diversity — more than 50 per cent — were clumped in the inner suburbs of Scarborough, North York and Etobicoke.

    Can’t wait to see all the new affirmative action programs for the new white minority.

    That’s funny, I just felt oppressed for a minute, there . . .

    You know even when this ethnic group gets to actual minority status they will just retort “hey you had your turn” and expect you to go along with w/e slop they roll out.

      Of course, because that already has been the case for women. According to affirmative action it does not matter when women are overrepresented in an area, they still retain their special status. Nothing whatsoever for men.

    Finally we can quit hearing about minority rights all the time. From now on it will be the majority rules.

      Don’t count on it. They want it both ways.

    This is the first time i fully agree with Desmond Cole that Toronto is a racist City. But the big question is who Cole is going to blame for black issues of poverty and drug use plus being about 80% of the Homicide victims and the killers.
    Blacks are just 8% of the 22% Vis-Mins and we know that they all didn’t move to Toronto . This tell us that 92% of the non-Blacks among the 22% are happy in canada and didn’t riot on Yonge street for Justice and jobs.
