Firsthand Once an Immigrant

Firsthand Once an Immigrant

What is Canadian identity? And how do the children of immigrants relate to the country they were born in, often thousands of miles from the place their parents and ancestors would call home? Peter Keleghan is a renowned actor and uber-patriotic first generation Canadian. His Irish mother and Polish father have complex relationships to their adoptive homeland, and the homes they left behind. Interwoven throughout their family story, Peter discusses Canadian identity and connections to "the homeland" with the children of immigrants from a range of countries, including Hungary, India, Greece, the Netherlands, China and Taiwan.
