Campus Giveaway' protests (January–April 1980)

Chinese Canadians from across the country came together to protest racism in a story that aired on CTV's current events programme, W5 on September 30, 1979. The eleven–minute segment titled ‘Campus Giveaway’ used incorrect and misleading statistics and images to suggest that international students were over–represented at Canadian universities, to the detriment of Canadian students. The programme depicted Chinese Canadian students as ‘foreigners’, which outraged Chinese Canadian communities. In April 1980, CTV issued an apology and a commitment to air a segment on ‘unconscious racism’ as recognition of their mistake. This protest movement led to the formation of the Chinese Canadian National Council (CCNC) to advocate on behalf of Chinese Canadians.
