The whole is more than the sum of its parts.
And this week the parts come together to share a whole lot of stories.
We all tell our stories in the food we eat, the clothes we wear and the songs and dances that we've been passed from our ancestors. But those are the ways we share our story...not the story itself. We have to get closer than that to hear what it's really all about.
It's no coincidence that National Multiculturalism Day is celebrated in the same week as Canada Day. Did you know that Canada was the first country in the world to adopt a policy of multiculturalism 45 years ago? We take tremendous pride in our freedom to show our identity and ancestry, and it's a fundamental part of who we are as Canadians.
From far and wide, O Canada! Let's get out there and have a part in it.
We've all got a story to share.
