90% of Come Dine With Me Canada contestants have been Caucasian

The show ‘Come Dine With Me Canada' is entering its second season. They have had 80 contestants participate. Of that number only 8 contestants have been visible minorities. That is 90% Caucasian and only 10% visible minority. In fact there has only been two black contestants. They have had only one Asian contestant, who quit after the second episode (the other four contestants were all white)

This was pointed out to TPTB, in hopes of being more inclusive, and tries to include more people of colour on the show. Ethnic cultural diversity is something that needs to be celebrated on and off the air. They had this response.

Oyinsan, who's lived in this country since 1996, said the targeted vandalism is a first since he emigrated from Nigeria.

"This isn't Canada ... this isn't what I am used to," he said.

"The neighbours are friendly."

"It only happens on weekends," Brown said. "I'm worried for my grandchildren ... what if someone got into the house?"

What most worries her, beyond being described as a "whore," was the warning in a letter left in August: If they don't move, "someone would be killed."
