A formal complaint with the human rights commission has been filed by the National Congress of Italian-Canadians (Q.R.)

Posted on 2013-10-07

Montreal October 7th, 2013.  The National Congress of Italian Canadians (Quebec Region) has filed a formal complaint with the Human Rights Commission against the ʺSyndicat des cols bleus de Montréalʺ subsequent to their refusal to withdraw the offensive video and apologize to the Italian Canadian Community.  (Attached copy of the complaint)

This sort of behaviour willfully undermines our reputation, it propagates racial stereotypes and cultural slurs which instinctively associate all Italians to corruption and organized crime.  It defames Italian- Canadians; it is unethical and contrary to the fundamental equality rights guaranteed by the Quebec Charter of Rights under articles 4, 10 and 11.

Our Community will no longer condone any form of racial profiling and/or bigotry which defames Italian Canadians.
