TORONTO – Integrating people of diverse backgrounds is neither easy nor quickly accomplished. Corriere Canadese and the Italian diaspora are no strangers to that process. It is generational, to say the least. Perhaps that explains why Corriere received a copy of a letter purportedly issued by the High Commission of India (Embassy) in Ottawa to Global Affairs Canada, addressed to Director General for South Asia, David Hartman.
The letter dated March 2, 2021, and referenced below, draws attention to an escalating rift between Hindus and other unnamed Indian nationals in Brampton, Ontario. Couched in the niceties of diplomatic language is a concern that Hindus are being targeted for violence and that the perpetrators may be aided by local law enforcement officials.
