Abstract

This thesis investigates the concept of 'race' and its place within the discourse of 'official multiculturalism' in the Canadian context. More specifically, I explore the ways that 'race' has been coded in the popular media in my examination of selected articles from the Toronto Star's coverage of: Philippe Rushton, human genome research, and racial profiling practiced by the Toronto Police Service.
