Parliament Video: Jenny in the House: Trudeau refuses to apologize for comments that systemic racism doesn't exist in Canada

On October 17, 2018, Jenny rose and asked this question:

Jenny Kwan (NDP) Vancouver East, BC

"Mr. Speaker, first nations, Métis and Inuit peoples in this country have suffered and continue to suffer from racial discrimination. In fact, this systemic form of discrimination is the oldest form of racism in this country, yet the Minister of Canadian Heritage and Multiculturalism stated that systemic racism somehow does not even exist in Canada. Oh yes, that is what Harper used to say.

Will the Prime Minister apologize to indigenous peoples, on behalf of his minister, for this ignorant statement?"
