Critical Race Theory Has Taken Over in Ontario RGI Housing
« on: September 08, 2022, 09:19:52 pm »
I am disabled. I applied for supportive geared to income housing for my disability 8 years ago. Their wait time as advertised on their website is 10 years. Their mandate is to provide supportive housing and treatment to people who have my disability.

I hadn't heard from the housing provider since they called me two years ago during the lockdowns. At that time I asked them where my application was on their wait list. They blew me off with a story about my file being "reassessed". At the time I believed them.

Then recently I called them again. I was given the same song and dance about a "reassessment", but this time they added to the story by telling me that my file was with "a third party", that they were deciding whether to put my file on an additional wait list, and that it would be with them for 3 months. I became concerned about the misuse of my personal medical information, the new super secret second wait list, and since there had been no change to my file in 8 years I couldn't understand why my file needed so many "reassessments".

That was when I looked up their website, and found their "strategic plan", "annual reports" and board meeting minutes. All three items went on and on and on about something called "EDI". There were also many references to "serving target groups", "privilege" and "diversity". When I Googled EDI I found it's Critical Race Theory. Critical Race Theory (CRT) is an ideology that believes that certain races are more entitled to services than others, and that "privileged" races don't deserve any help at all. Their annual reports indicated that they removed over 550 people from their wait list between 2019 and 2021. They only have 1000 housing units. Clearly they kicked the "privileged" people off of their wait list during the lockdowns, and without telling them.

I also found evidence that this housing provider (which is a non profit mainly funded by the Ontario government) spent a huge sum of taxpayer money paying a company to indoctrinate their staff and teach them how to lie to the clients who are excluded from the wait list.

Obviously I was angry as I've clearly been removed from their wait list because of my race, and they're lying to me about it. Just because I'm White doesn't mean I'm less disabled or in need of housing than anyone else. I thought about complaining to the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal, but their website is full of CRT ideology as well. So if you are White and your landlord discriminates against you, you now have no legal recourse other than the RHT.

I wanted to file a complaint with the housing provider's main funder, the Ontario Ministry of Housing. Then I found evidence that they were the ones behind this racism and discrimination! They have an entire website which gives housing providers the information and teaching materials they need to adopt Critical Race Theory in tenant selection. I tried contacting a few big name news reporters who have written negative articles about CRT in the past, but they didn't bother to reply to my emails.

So, if you are on a wait list for social housing, health care or anything else from this province, I strongly suggest you take a look at their websites, and give them a call to ask where you are on their wait list. If they did it to my housing provider, they will do it to the rest of them. Don't be surprised if you get the same fairy tale stories as I did. And if you think Doug Ford's government is "conservative" - think again. CRT is pure cultural Marxism aka communism.

This is very a disturbing story, however it is also very eye opening and not one bit surprising.

I would be curious to learn more and to read similar stories.

How did our system become so rotten and biased against whites ?

I did more digging and found that critical race theory was first adopted by the Wynne liberals. CRT is pure anti white racism and genocide. The Wynne liberals passed a law called the Anti Racism Act which is pure CRT ideology. The Ford government has done nothing to strike this law down, nor has it moved to make CRT illegal in Ontario, even though it's illegal in 35 US states. In Ontario it infects education, health care, public housing, and social services. It also infests the Ontario Human Rights Commission. The Ford government is complicit in this.

It's hard to find other stories like mine because CRT discrimination is practiced in secret. In housing it's still illegal to refuse to rent to someone based on their race. Non profit housing agencies rely on donations. They'd lose donors if people found out that they were discriminating against tenants. People are being removed from wait lists and denied access to health and social programs without being told. I'm sure the rest of the 550 people who have been removed from my housing provider's wait list aren't aware of it. I only found out by accident when I became suspicious that the housing provider was lying to me about my position on their wait list.

I filed access to information requests to get a full copy of my file from the housing provider. I had to make three written requests and then threaten to sue them before they provided a partial copy of my file last week. Even the partial copy contained evidence showing that they moved my file off of the main housing wait list onto a made-up wait list that doesn't provide housing.

There's other evidence of discrimination in my file. When I was having trouble with my landlord in 2020 and was afraid I'd be evicted, their notes said "she's getting so much money, she can afford to move to another market rent apartment" (for twice the rent I'm paying now, and when they haven't asked about my income since 2014). I pay 48% of my income in rent, by the way. A non white tenant would have been moved up on the wait list. I'm 57 years old. When I asked them about applying for senior services and housing (they have a page about it on their website) I was told that they don't offer senior services and to look for market rent housing again. Clearly they think I'm too "privileged" to deserve housing assistance.

Next week I file a formal complaint with the Ontario privacy officer to get my entire file. Clearly this housing authority has something to hide. I have found an investigative reporter whose mind was blown by my story and she has promised to write an exposé about it. I've also applied to the non profit housing authority in my home town (outside the GTA) after looking at their website and seeing no evidence of critical race theory doctrine.
