Cancer coverage in ethnic and mainstream newspapers did not accurately reflect the leading causes of cancer death in Canada.

Without the disaggregation of cancer statistics by ethnicity, we cannot inform high-risk subgroups of the population and appropriately tailor cancer prevention and treatment programs.
