Dear readers,

It’s been an uncomfortable and at times overwhelming couple of weeks here in Canada. While division has been at the centre of many of our conversations lately, we are instead turning our attention to diversity.

Our Diversity issue is picking up where we left off with our Black History Month issue. Our goal, as always, is to continue bringing important stories to the forefront, exploring diverse perspectives, and keeping our readers informed on the world around them.

Reporter Ana Lustosa explores an issue close to us in the media industry: A lack of diversity in Canadian newsrooms. Sports reporter Brad Kraemer, meanwhile, looks at the wealth disparity in Formula One racing, a rapidly growing sport that has yet to truly embrace drivers of diverse backgrounds. Indigenous reporters Savannah Bisaillon and Jessica Gould take on two important discussions: The loss of Indigenous language and culture, and the rejection of Métis people by both Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities.

This issue also features a specially submitted cover, designed by student, Aaron Bengall. Aaron won our Interrobang cover contest with his unique interpretation of what diversity means to him.

In spite of everything we’ve seen and heard recently, we know that the true foundation of Canada is our respect and love for one another. We hope this issue reminds you of this truth.

Sincerely,

Hannah Theodore
