Activists angry so-called diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) programs are being tarnished by suicide

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation is facing backlash for running a story about some racial grievance mongers who’re angry that their beloved so-called diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) programs are being tarnished.

The grievance mongers are specifically upset that the suicide of a “progressive” Toronto principal is being used to lobby against their programs. Never mind the reported fact that the principal, 60-year-old Richard Bilkszto, committed suicide after allegedly being bullied during one of these DEI programs.

“He filed a lawsuit against the school board earlier this year, related to a 2021 online anti-racism training session where he claims to have been implicitly referred to as a white supremacist by the trainer and berated in front of his colleagues when he disagreed that Canada was more racist than the U.S.,” the CBC, to its credit, admitted.

But instead of laying out the accusations in detail, the paper focused entirely on the racial grievance mongers’ claims that the accusations are false.

“Kike Ojo-Thompson, chief executive officer of the KOJO Institute and the anti-racism trainer accused of denigrating Bilkszto, said the accusations are false and mischaracterize what happened,” the CBC reported

“Ojo-Thompson calls Bilkszto’s death a tragedy and offers her condolences to his family, but also said his death has been weaponized to discredit and suppress anti-racism efforts,” it continued.

To get the real story, one has to read The Free Press, a non-establishment media outlet started by heretics Bari Weiss and Nelly Bowles.

The real story notes, for instance, exactly what Ojo-Thompson had said to Bilkszto when he’d challenged the notion that Canada is more racist than the U.S.

“What I’m finding interesting is that, in the middle of this Covid disaster, where the inequities in this fair and equal healthcare system have been properly shown to all of us. . . you and your whiteness think that you can tell me what’s really going on with black people—like, is that what you’re doing, ’cause I think that’s what you’re doing, but I’m not sure, so I’m going to leave you space to tell me what you’re doing right now,” she’d said.

The Free Press even published the corresponding audio footage:

Unfortunately, this patently racist berating was just the beginning “of Bilkszto’s harrowing, two-year descent into an ordeal of public shaming and isolation that ended only when he took his life last month,” according to The Free Press.

“He was distraught,” Michael Teper, a friend of Bilkszto, told the outlet.

“It was not only his job that was taken away from him, but his reputation, because those very people were assassinating his character. They claimed he was a white supremacist, that he was a racist. They knew nothing about him. They knew nothing about what he stood for or what he believed. All they know about is what they believe,” he added.

Teper isn’t quoted anywhere in the CBC’s reporting, surprise, surprise. As noted earlier, the CBC made sure to only tell one side of the story — the side most conducive to the race-obsessed left’s agenda.

As a result, the paper has been ratioed on Twitter.


WSIB is short for the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board, which is basically an agency that protects workers.

An investigation conducted by the WSIB found that Ojo-Thompson’s behavior toward Bilkszto “was abusive, egregious and vexatious, and rises to the level of workplace harassment and bullying.”

Guess what’s not included in the CBC’s supposed “report” …
