TLDR: Racism incident at Vancouver first day of landing. Question for folks currently living in Canada about their experience.
Debated for a while before posting this, but thought its better to share with this community.
Landed a few months ago in Vancouver, everything was smooth at immigration etc, and went on to rent a car to visit a few places (we were only staying there for a day). Our last stop was Canada place. It was ~8:30-9 PM on a weekday, and there were hardly any people. Some guy (looked drunk/high) started yelling ‘Go back to India’, which was totally unexpected since I hadn’t faced such a thing ~6 years in US. It kind of left a bad taste since it was our first day and we had assumed that Canada was better than US in this aspect.
For folks who have lived in Canada for a while, what has your experience been in this regard? Do you feel safe and comfortable in general?
