The face and voice of Canada is changing. Growing diversity is stimulating some tough questions about Canadian values and what it means to be Canadian. Taking Surrey, British Columbia as a microcosm of Canadian society, Joe Schlesinger documents the clash between official multiculturalism and the practical reality of living with diversity. Conceived as a way of showing that to be Canadian one doesn't have to fit a master pattern, multiculturalism also has its opponents. They claim it ghettoizes groups, causes resentment and wastes tax dollars. This informative and provocative report looks back at the origins of Canada's multicultural policy and examines its possible future.
