Recent from CBC News:

  • How this mayor tackled vaccine hesitancy in a deeply Republican city
  • Canada must swiftly resettle Afghan interpreters, retired colonel says
  • Mask mandate reintroduced in parts of B.C. amid rising cases
  • CBC News published this video item, entitled “Muslim actors frustrated by terrorist, refugee roles that ‘otherize'” – below is their description.

    Discouraged by how often they were asked to play roles portraying Muslims as ‘others’ who are outside the norm, Canadian actors Ali Momen and Maissa Houri are taking control of their own stories and calling for better representation on screen.
