Canada has taught me the value of multiculturalism. I have been privileged to go where I would never have gone had I stayed in the UK. I have attended services in a Synagogue, a Sikh temple, a Catholic church and a Greek Orthodox church.
My daughter learned to dance in a Ukrainian Cultural club. My children have traveled around the world eagerly accepting the hospitality of different peoples. I have eaten Chinese, Italian, Greek and Kosher foods. But mostly I have learned that people of different races are not a menace or a threat. The threat is the way in which we have been trained to fear the stranger for the entrenched power of those who seek absolute power over continents.
And mostly I have learned so much about humility and a gentle approach to living with nature from our First Nations.
Toula Drimonis says "The CBC provides a coast-to-coast identity, and support for our artists and intellectuals. It provides a popular forum for well-reasoned arguments, for ideas to flourish, for the kind of intellect that stands in stark contrast to popular infotainment produced and consumed daily in mass quantities."
From the beginning the CBC has taken on the mandate of bringing Canadians together by allowing Canadians to share their experiences across this vast land.
CBC is a threat only to the transnational interests who have organized the destabilization of nations all over the globe, divide and separate the people, for the sake of cheap resources.
