Originally published: April 28, 2017

A video created to celebrate Montreal's identity that only featured what appear to be white people has been taken down from the city's Facebook and YouTube pages.

Posted Tuesday, the two-minute video was part of a campaign to get Montrealers to propose people, places and organizations they believe are vital to the city's cultural heritage.

It showed a man cross-country skiing on Mount Royal, artists who create murals and glass figurines, a priest and a bagel maker. They all appear to be white.
