International hate crime researcher’s expertise sought by reporters
November 18, 2016
In a world where the issue of hate speech is in news headlines, a researcher in the Faculty of Social Science and Humanities at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) has received numerous inquiries as a subject matter expert.
Journalists from across the country have been asking Barbara Perry, PhD for her take on the status of hate crime activity in Canada. Recent media appearances include CBC Radio One’s The Current with Anna Maria Tremonti, and TV Ontario’s The Agenda with Steve Paikin, among others.
Much of the coverage has come in the wake of the 2016 presidential election campaign in the United States.
