There exists a Canadian Ethos on race that characterizes our nation is has and continue to be openly accepting of black people. Within this Ethos is the view that the lack of opportunities and reduced quality of life for blacks is due to individual failings or lack of compatibility with Canadian culture and tradition. The term ethos is as an abstract construct to describe the belief, which Canadians project onto the national culture, character, philosophy, laws, principles, attitudes and political systems. The Ethos makes historical omission and exclusion of blacks necessary in order to create the illusion of harmony for those who want to define Canada as a white, non-racist nation. The Ethos serves to under play our racialized past. The paper presents early records of Canadian slavery as an assault on one of the tenements to the Canadian Ethos.

Donovan and I are currently revising this paper for a forthcoming book on Canadian Black History.
