When I was living in Toronto, Ontario, there was a room for discussion about the issue of race in Canada. However, when I moved to British Columbia, the issue of race was no longer a public issue. It was a matter of self-individual responsibility not to be acting racist to others. In the conflict resolution technique, it means that people are avoiding one another to resolve their differences and animosity remains in the society. This is the state of racism in British Columbia.
It was very refreshing when I was reading this book, and it was discussing the issue of race.
The bottom line is, the direction Canada is going, it is going to cause countless individuals to feel alienated in Canada. Thus, the policy of multiculturalism become a policy of accommodation and not the policy of integration. It is time to change for sake of Canada.
