Canada's Economic Apartheid calls attention to the growing racialization of the gap between rich and poor. Despite the dire implications for Canadian society, the rift is increasing with minimal public and policy attention. The myths about the economic performance of Canada's racialized communities that are used to deflect public concern and to mask the growing social crisis are challenged in this relevant work. Dr. Galabuzi points to the role of historical patterns of systemic racial discrimination as essential in understanding the persistent over-representation of racialized groups in low-paying occupations. While Canada embraces globalization and romanticizes cultural diversity, there are persistent expressions of xenophobia and racial marginalization that suggest a continuing political and cultural attachment to the concept of a White, settled society.
