Take any public or community organization in Hamilton – supported by taxpayers and community contributions – and you will hardly find any position of power or influence being occupied by someone who is non-white. This is a terrible indictment and something must be done to highlight this problem.

Well, the long-time head of the public school board (Chris Spence, now in Toronto) was black, for what that's worth. But I don't think that I could think of more than one public figure in 50 who is black. And given that 2% of Hamilton's population is black, don't you think that's scandalous?
