Canada’s telegenic Prime Minister has been in the news lately, photographed at airports, welcoming Syrian refugees to his country. Much of Canada is colorblind, especially in places like Toronto – North America’s 4th largest city - where there’s not only a huge Chinese immigrant population, supporting two Chinatowns, but also the largest Sri Lankan diaspora anywhere in the world and a Little India along Gerard Street that puts most cities to shame. In fact, according to Statistics Canada, by 2036, nearly half of all Canadians will be immigrants or the children of immigrants. Places like Markham and Scarborough, a good 30 minutes outside of town, along the Northern edge of Lake Ontario host a number of ethnic restaurants.
