Introducing The Ethnic Aisle

GTA news, multiculti views and extra hot sauce…

Welcome to the ethnic aisle. We know you’ve been craving something different. You’re tired of hearing that the Greater Toronto Area is the most diverse spot in the world, only to be bombarded with the same voices, the same ideas, the same flavour of news and commentary on every website, newspaper, tv channel and radio station. It’s boring, right? It’s so limited, which is such a shame when there’s so much more to taste.

This blog collects and links to the thoughts of mouthy bloggers, journalists and everyday peeps who actually hail from those mysterious diverse communities you hear so much about. Its focus is race and ethnicity. We’re going to use this blog as a clearing-house for our personal reflections on how our non-white, non-newcomer identities affect our views of what happens in this city. We’ll be commenting on news, picking apart each other’s arguments and musing on the broader picture. We’re always looking for people to contribute, of every identity, even if you’re white (or, worse, like to be called a New Canadian). Keep reading, and get in touch.
