Multiculturalism is Canada’s greatest strength in these early years of the 21st century. It is the reason we have not fallen prey (so far) to the populist movements afflicting other pluralist nations. But we cannot take social peace for granted. Erna Paris will be speaking about the reasons for Canada’s success to date and also about the success and failure of an earlier multiethnic society, from which we have much to learn.
