CBC’s Adrian Harewood on Why He Talked to CANADALAND About Diversity

This week, CANADALAND published an article by Farnia Fekri outlining how diverse the CBC is compared to the Canadian population. One of Fekri’s sources was Adrian Harewood, a long-time anchor at CBC Ottawa. Fekri contacted many CBC employees, but Harewood was the only one who agreed to speak on the record.

Today, Harewood explained on Twitter why he decided to speak out and why many others can’t. This is his Twitter essay.
