Canadian Multiculturalism Day 2014

Green Party Leader Mike Schreiner made the following statement on Canadian Multiculturalism Day:

“Today, on Canadian Multiculturalism Day, we celebrate the ethnic, religious and cultural diversity of our beautiful country.

Multiculturalism is fundamental to our belief that all Canadian citizens, regardless of their racial, ethnic or religious background, have an equal voice and opportunity to participate fully in Canadian society.

It is important to recognize that without these diverse backgrounds, Canada would not be a prosperous country with a strong democracy and a thriving culture.

Today I will join all those celebrating this unique country we call home.”
