Activists question Federation of Black Canadians’ leadership, ties to Liberals

Some black activists in Canada are questioning the ability of the Federation of Black Canadians (FBC) to advocate on their behalf because the organization is being led by a sitting Ontario court judge.

The organization is also facing questions over its ties to the federal Liberals and claims that meetings with the Trudeau government have left other grassroots organizations out in the cold.

The FBC is a national, non-profit organization chaired by Justice Donald McLeod in Toronto. The organization made its official debut at the National Black Canadians Summit in December 2017.
