Racist? Are you out of your fucking mind?!? You are.
Go it to Iqaluit, and express your opinion there. I dare you.
I don't need to go to Iqaluit to express my opinion. I will express it here! If you really think this is racist, you are nuts. Need I elaborate?
In all seriousness though and from my extensive travels in the north...I do sadly see systemic racism up there of a DIRECT nature uncommonly found in many other parts of Canada...the people are Inuit...and all the business owners, schoolteachers and cops are white...lines are clearly drawn. When sitting in a bar with Inuit people up there (after leaving another one out of disgust because they refused to allow Inuit people entry) we were all having a good time...taking turns when it came to buying 'rounds'...everytime it came to THEIR turn to but a round...one of us paler-faces had to walk them up to the bar otherwise they were refused...when I asked them bout' that they said "We are not allowed to sever an Inuit more than 1 beer at a time and none at all past midnight..." So in conclusion...while the add itself is indeed somewhat insensitive likely simply out of ignorance...they have their hands FULL of the REAL DEAL up there...and down here too:(
