Google Scholar is a great place to search for articles. (Use the link above or set up your library links under Settings to access what MRU subscribes to.)
broadcast television ethnic diversity canadian

To find articles that use content analysis specifically as a research method, add that term to your search:
television news gender canadian "content analysis"
("quotation marks" keep phrases together)
Try using operators in Google Scholar (works in regular Google too!):
twitter female athletes gender canadian intitle:"content analysis"
(intitle:means that the term must be in the title of the article)
The Research Methods Online database is full of resources to help you learn all about content analysis, including coding. Just search for "content analysis" to find videos, case studies, reference entries and chapters describing how to use this method.
