Opinion: What Canada’s version of “BIPOC” should be

If there is the need for an acronym to identify the most important minority groups in Canada, I would propose “FIBOM” — Francophones, Indigenous, Blacks and Other Minorities. Haitians and people from Central and West Africa mostly would be ‘double minority’ in this identification, since they speak French and are Blacks. Note that this is different from Heath’s suggested FIVM — Francophone, Indigenous, and Visible Minority.
