It was a short to the point positive review. “It was better than I expected,” my eight-year old said while strapping himself into a seat-belt in the back of the car. He wasn’t sure what a multicultural festival meant when we defined it to him. He didn’t know what...
Multiculturalism
By K. Taylor, Aurora ON. Thoughts on multiculturalism, and cake. Have you ever gotten to the party, after the cake was served? You knew they had cake, but you didn’t get to eat it. I feel a bit like that right now. As drops of cold rain patter on the pavement...
