Transport Canada suspends six employees without pay over racist email

Nov 15, 2020

Transport Canada has suspended six employees without pay for spreading a racist email at work more than a decade ago, following a CBC News story last year that triggered an internal investigation.

The department's probe found 10 workers shared an offensive parody song called "Strangers on my Flight," set to the tune of a Frank Sinatra number, between 2006 and 2010. The spoof song features derogatory lyrics based on racial stereotypes about travellers wearing turbans and mentions harming travellers with baseball bats.
