No matter where people are from, nearly 90% of us primarily speak English or French at home.

Nicole Elmenhorst's insight:

Canada is a country with a huge multicultural society. Out standing numbers are reviled in this article. Cant help but wonder how they all get along so well, while we in Norway have so many differences, and disputes connected to our multicultural society.

The supposed fear implied in this article over not having a ``core culture`` seems rather close-minded. Canada is a reckoned force in multiculturalism, but this article seem to project the assimilation aspect of this, and portray it as a negative thing. I think assimilation is a good thing, but i dont neccessarily think the lack of assimilation is a bad thing.

What Can We Learn from a Box of Crayons?

Nicole Elmenhorst's insight:

This article gives a simple, yet beautiful insight in our colorful world. Filled with different people, opinions and lives. We are all equally important to complete this world of ours. Explained so easily that even the children managed to understand how each of us color the world in different ways, and how we together create a more combined and fulfilling community.
