The Way Canada Is Run

In reality, it is a marvellous way to run a county. In fact, it is probably the way every country should be run. In that sense, Canada is a model for the world, a place that, in a greater degree than most others, has set aside ethnic conflicts based on national identity in favour of a loosey-goosey multiculturalism based on individual opportunity and inter-group respect. Canada is a post-national state. Some of us think that it’s quite wonderful.

    Tell the mayor of Longeuil about setting aside ethnic conflicts. Words from a Toronto centric Pollyanna.
