Some… Kelowna (British Columbia) residents say marketing materials and banners produced by the City of Kelowna are too White, and don’t reflect the “racial diversity” of the community.
[See: Diversity Is A Fraud]
[The 2006 Demographic Census reported a 94.5% White majority for this Canadian city, yet “some” non-whites (translation: 1 disgruntled visible-minority) bitterly complain of being ignored in local photographic banners displayed on public streets! The 2011 figures from Stats Canada have yet to be released, but White Canadians can be assured they’ve been diminished in real numbers… and much to the glee of many racial-minorities.
In 1981 this small city in south-central British Columbia had a near 100% White Canadian population with the exception of a few Native Indian residents. However, since the government foolishly began allowing the mass influx of 3rd-world immigrants (at the expense of White Europeans), it has become a regular feature for emboldened racial minorities to play their “race card” to gain some advantage over gullible Canadians.
Much like a rebellious adopted teenager demanding more power in the home, this racial-minority interloper is attempting to usurp the authority of her “parents”. Her tolerant caregivers sacrificed many years to provide food, shelter and sustenance to raise this “cuckoo” placed in Canada’s nest, yet the emboldened “bird” now challenges them in a power-struggle for more control, and much more than what she deserves. (Note: Cuckoo birds are notorious for laying their eggs in the nests of other breeds. The unsuspecting care-givers then raise and nurture chicks not of their own breed. — ELN Editor]

The banners were posted as part of an ambitious revitalization of its downtown core. Fences surround a three block area where construction crews are working. They are covered in banners featuring pictures of people who live and work downtown.
But all of the people appear to be White. According to the most recent census data… just 6% of Kelowna’s residents are visible minorities (NON-whites).
[Robert11 says: “Let’s see … in the photo attached to the story, one of the 13 people appears non-white. That’s 7.7%. Seems fairly representative of the 6% visible minority fraction quoted in the article!”]
“There was not a lot of diversity represented [on the banners],” said Kamilla Bahbahani, who lives in downtown Kelowna (British Columbia) and is an equity advisor at UBC Okanagan. [Her Email: firstname.lastname@example.org]
“There didn’t seem to be a lot of diversity in ancestry in particular and everyone did appear to be able bodied and other types of diversity also weren’t represented.”
[Editor’s Note: That’s a somewhat disingenuous statement. She probably could care less about “other types of diversity”. This whole sorry episode is about own her race and her daughter’s race because race hustlers always play “the victim” to elict sympathy from their unsuspecting listeners, and also to justify her pay cheque as an “equity advisor”. Her job is just another taxpayer supported, make-work project for visible-minorities who can’t compete in Canada’s real job market.]
Bahbahani wrote a letter, complaining to the city’s mayor and council.
“I can tell you that I personally felt excluded, that I was concerned for the message this would send my daughter about her place in this town and who is welcome,” she said in the letter.
[ELN Editor’s Note: She could easily solve her problem by hopping on the next flight to India where she won’t feel so excluded amongst her own racial grouping. Yes?]
The city’s business liaison for the revitalization project, Kelly Kay, says the marketing materials are more diverse than they appear.
“Our [banners] actually do feature individuals from Latin America, Lebanon and Europe and then we also have individuals of African-American and Asian descent in our other marketing material for the project,” she said.
However, in a reply sent to Bhabahani — Kelowna’s communications co-ordinator, Lesley Driscoll — acknowledges the marketing campaign’s lack of “visible minorities“.
Her letter says 25 people responded to an open call looking for volunteers to participate in the campaign.
“While there was a variety of age ranges, there were not a variety of ethnicities,” she wrote.
Driscoll also said the city is working to make sure future marketing materials are more diverse.
“We did put out another open call for participants and have a handful of participants with various ethnic backgrounds this time around whose faces will be appearing in various marketing collateral such as our e-subscribe bulletins, website, fact sheets and brochures.” >Source
