A CBC Town Hall focused on increasing diversity and ending systemic discrimination generated frank talk and multiple solutions from a London, Ont., crowd Wednesday night.

Audience members were quick to lineup at the microphone to ask panelists questions and to add their voice to a conversation that challenged Londoners to think of bold steps to improve tolerance in the city.

"I am making a commitment right now to call racism when I see it," said panelist and the city's newly appointed diversity and inclusion officer Saleha Khan.
