Mayor of Winnipeg Fumes over Air Canada Allegations

Winnipeg Mayor Sam Katz vows to get to the bottom of Air Canada's allegations of  Winnipeg being too much of a violent city for their overnight staff.

Air Canada announced that its staff will no longer be staying in the Winnipeg downtown hotels.  There is claim that the violence has increased since the flood caused many rural evacuees to stay in the down town hotels.

This sounds a bit like racism since most of the people staying in these hotels might be Aboriginals. Is Air Canada practising racism? Jumping to conclusion that Winnipeg is more violent because of the presence of more Aboriginal people in the city? If that is the case then Air Canada needs some diversity training big time. Racism must go.
