NDP push for race-based data collection in Alberta

Calgary Sun: 'A proposed NDP private members’ bill would require all government departments in Alberta to collect race-based data and report on key measurements around equity.

'Bill 204 The Anti-Racism Act, tabled by NDP health critic David Shepherd in the legislature Thursday, would also create a new anti-racism office and commissioner to analyze the data and spot inequities in policies, programs and services.

'“Systemic racism is often caused by policies, practices, and procedures that appear neutral on paper but in practice, they disadvantage racialized groups, and are often perpetuated by a failure to identify and monitor racial disparities so that real change can be mapped and implemented,” Shepherd said prior to tabling the bill.'
