What Does It Really Mean To Be Canadian?

Posted on Saturday, November 12 at 14:15 by Anonymous
Despite the frail nature of Canadian unity, even though ten years have passed since the most recent (and hopefully last) Quebec sovereignty vote, its significance is still generally neglected as the country has arguably drifted even further apart. One only needs to look as far as the geographical distribution of political support to show the regionalization of Canada - Conservatives on either coast, Liberals in Ontario, the BQ, of course, in Quebec and a dusting of NDP throughout (perhaps Canada's only true national party?). What is very clear is that it is no longer possible to truly define what it means to be Canadian for all Canadians. Like general relativity in science, the perception of that concept varies based on your experiences. http://imprint.uwaterloo.ca/story.php?f=2&t=7813&i=&v=f&story=7813 [Proofreader's note: this article was edited for spelling and typos on November 14, 2005]
