report on attacks against asian canadian fishermen

This week, the Ontario Human Rights Commission released its third and final report investigating a series of racist assaults and incidents of harassment against local Asian fishermen, tracing back several years: Race was bait in attacks.

You might remember reading about it a few years ago, when a number of Asian Canadian fishermen fell victim to what the kids were calling "nippertipping." Yes, you read that right. They call it nippertipping. That's no coincidence.

The commission inquiry, which spanned two fishing season, found that they were indeed being targeted, but victims were often afraid of reporting the incidents, or just didn't know how to report them. And it's apparently still happening. That's racist! More here: Asian anglers can't shake harassment.
