Only rich girls we only buy the bottles

How does Canada's commitment to multiculturalism provide writers with a framework to explore their identity and retain dual identities?

Canada is a multicultural nation. It simple means that Canadians are not just comprised of just one background, race, culture, traditions, beliefs or heritage. Instead, Canadians reflect a vast diversity of different nationalities and racial groups coming together, living together and working together as a country. It is Canada’s commitment in unifying different races comprised of the whole country into one. Our diversity is a national asset especially in the international sphere. After all, Canada is recognized to be the first multicultural country in the world.

Everyone who has migrated to Canada bring their language, culture, and religion with them to Canada. It is basically an advantage to learn from others as well as pass on some knowledge about your own culture and traditions to other people. Thru multiculturalism, Canada recognizes the potential of each individual, encouraging them to integrate into their own society and take part in social and cultural events.

We all live among other races and nationalities, so it affects the very fabric of each person’s relationship with others. We personally count people from different religions and backgrounds as friends and treat them as one. In the story “Ancestors – The Genetic Source” by David Suzuki, he had mentioned the difficulty in merging together his identity as a Japanese Canadian. He mentions that environment overrides genes and that’s mainly because we also all work with people from different ethnocultural background. Yes, we have a lot of ethnicities, but since when was that a negative thing? It definitely has improved the country’s issues better than it being a homogeneous society.

In the story “Québécitude: An Ambiguous Identity”, Guy Bédard, even wrote All identities are a construction of mind which means that identity involves how each person thinks. He wrote about him being a French-speaking Catholic and it shows how it had changed meanings because of the formation of other nationalities from around the world. Canadians who speak many languages and understand various cultures make it easier for Canada to participate in worldwide issues, especially in important areas such as business and education.

So it provides writers the need to be heard and understood. Canadians are exposed everyday to a variety of ethnic foods, cultural shows, folk dances and such, which helps Canadians become more open to the idea of accepting various backgrounds and being aware of the values that each individual possess. In the story “A Wedding in Toronto” by Austin Clarke, his family had accepted his bride more than her own family where they had not bothered showing up on her wedding because of her spouse’s ethnic background. Thus, being more knowledge and multicultural makes us more motivated to get to learn about ourselves while maintaining their identity and responsibilities within the society and still be able to retain dual identities.

As often as we interact with one another, this is a huge increase of cultural sharing. When an immigrant comes to Canada, they can still maintain their old contacts, their own personality, their own traditions and beliefs, while forming new friendships, new relationships, new identities and enhance our knowledge on the Canadian culture. The Canadian identity is based on public acceptance of physical differences and support the pluralism of origins, which is a fact of the urban life.

Writers know their right to be heard and be spoken and therefore still are able to keep their ethnic cultures alive while struggling to have a dual identity being recognized as a Canadian. Canada is rooted in difference. So, we each have adopted an identity that will continue to remain elusive. Canada has fluidity. We have seen what comes from the old traditional rules but it has changed as the times change. Our differences are definitely our strength.

The rest of the world looks to Canada in these realms, and these social issues are among the most challenging issues confronting society. So it is a strength, not a weakness, that the more diversified we are, the more we are tolerant and open in accepting others as fellow Canadians to form a mosaic together to become a unified Canadian identity, while still taking pride in their unique individual heritage.

Grace Potter and The Nocturnals – Apologies

Yesterday he said my eyes
Were fading fast away
I said well what do you expect
You asked me not to stay and if it had all been for the best
I wouldn’t feel this way
And he said

Oh he said it’s crazy
How love stays with me
You know it hurts me
Cause I don’t wanna fight this war
It’s amazing to see me reading through this scene
Of love and fear and apologies

My love is like a blanket
That gets a little bit too warm sometimes
I wanna wrap somebody in it
Who can hold me in his arms
Cause when it got a little too hot in there
He was always stepping out for air and he froze
Oh he froze

He said it’s crazy
How love stays with me
You know it hurts me
Cause I don’t wanna fight this war
It’s amazing to see me reading through this scene
Of love and fear and apologies

Yesterday he looked at me
With a tear in his eye and said
I’ll always tell you you’re my friend
I hope I don’t have to lie
Cause it’s clear you love another man
I said you’re damn right

And he said
He said it’s crazy
How love stays with me
You know it hurts me
Cause I don’t wanna fight this war
It’s amazing to see me reading through this scene
Of love and fear and apologies
He said it’s crazy
How love stays with me
You know it hurts me
That I didn’t figure it out before
And now it’s too late for a soliloquy
It’s way too late for dignity
It’s time for apologies

Why immigrant women may be the stronger sex

This article impressed me because I really do believe that women are the stronger sex. Just look at the diversity of the roles women play nowadays. Whether they have suffered a lot from their origin country or simply motivated by the need to achieve and be confident about their ability to make their dreams comes true in Canada, women are the pillars of strength and vital participants in Canadian community. They go through a lot more than their male counterparts in terms of challenges and stressors surrounding their work in the daily living of settling in for their quest for ethnic continuity and attempts to enter the labour market. Everyday they face a multitude of personal, professional, cultural, and career challenges and from what I’ve seen firsthand, always keep motivating themselves to move nowhere else but up, even in difficult times.

Canada is a nation of immigrants. Elinor Caplan, the minister of Citizenship and Immigration personally believes that “Immigration made the last century a success for Canada. ” Immigrant women are always ready to make sacrifices for their families and to achieve their own personal goals in life. They spend more of their personal time catering to the everyday demands of their families than pursuing further education or career paths. There are many obstacles but immigrant women have strong personalities and most are able to overcome them. A few just stay separated and a few others melt down and become depressed. The ones that stick out are goal-oriented and will not mind barriers in front of them, instead keep finding ways to motivate themselves to do more in Canada than males.

Another similar article found in the hot immigrations issues folder talks about median earnings of women and men here in Canada. It showed that women earn on an average $15.12 while men only earned a dollar less. Eventually with experience, volunteer work and formal education, immigrant women have more opportunities. I choose to believe whatever unique personalities immigrant women have or how different they are based on their traditional mindsets and beliefs, they can make a successful living if only they are not daunted by the everyday challenges and defeats, but take it as an important learning factor. As a young woman myself, I believe there is no such thing as failure. Everything that happens right here in Canada, is an opportunity for learning and improving ourselves and those that surround us.

Women from I have lived in my entire life in the Middle East, have been constantly told on what to do their entire life. From their fathers to their brothers and husbands in their lives, they have been told how to look like, what to wear, how to act, what to do next. Their decisions were not counted and shared with.  Even if women are stronger than men in some aspects, such as physical pain, there is always some sort of tenderness that is proper to women’s nature. I think a woman’s warmth, kindness, and femininity are what makes them strong and powerful in the Western culture. I also believe a woman’s real strength and power comes from knowing who they really are and living their life to the fullest. Here, I know where I want to go in life, usually by trial and error. In order for me where I am today, I listened to my mother and few mentors from work and college to provide advice that are in my best interests. I was able to find creative means to apply my skills and experience from back home to here in Canada and found that I had taken more initiative and was determined to be successful here.

Recent studies from Newsnet, show that women have several positive attributes for leadership. We are more persuasive than our male counterparts. It has also been found that women tend to learn from diversity and are more persistent. Women develop an inclusive, team-building leadership style to solve problems and make decisions. Finally, women are more likely to ignore rules and take risks. Researchers say men also do exceptionally well in those areas, but women just do it a little better.  Immigrant women act more decisively. We think, plan accordingly and go about based on a combination of our skills and talents.

Once an immigrant woman is empowered to do more, she have the ability to analyze a situation and move forward in a rational way. We also tend to be more entrepreneurial because of the many open doors here in Canada. I personally have learned the value of women and our rights and I believe Canada can and should do more to protect immigrant women as they are significant contributors to the economy and our communities.

How do gender role expectations impact on the relations between family members?

Gender roles, as defined by Wikipedia is a set of perceived behavioural norms associated particularly with males or females, in a given social group or system. Different cultures and traditions impose different expectations from males and females. Over the past few decades, Canada has made great strides in accepting and adjusting to different meanings of gender roles. My cultural values differ significantly from European and Caucasian norms; therefore it is important to understand different populations to understand their impact on gender roles.

I believe the strongest influences on a person are perceived gender is parents. Our parents are our first teachers and hold very traditional ideas on how males and females behaviours should be especially in today’s society. Parents treat their infant son and infant daughters differently. They react more quickly to their daughter’s cries than to their son. They also tend to hug and pay more attention to with their daughters while trying out new things such as sport activities with their son. We as children look up to them as positive role models but sometimes parents can serve as negative role models as well. For example, in the story “Everyone Talked Loudly in Chinatown” is an example of how Lin’s parents viewed it as wrong to date a white boy she liked in the story. Due to their traditional beliefs, her mother was angry and shocked to see her daughter kissing a white boy which is considered morally wrong.

The shifting of gender roles in the past years has changed dramatically, opening new doors. It has happened so quickly that men and women are still trying to sort out what the new roles and rules mean to them. Although women are no longer expected to be the keepers of the house, in reality, they are still solely responsible for grocery shopping, laundry, cooking, and cleaning, like in the story “A Bit of Magic,” where Matina was seeking ways to earn her own money instead of relying on her husband to earn the cash. She wanted to have a good holiday with her family and found comfort in helping in some small way. Nowadays, men are generally open to the successes enjoyed by the women they share their lives with, however, some still find it hard to celebrate a woman’s achievements because they feel it diminishes their own.

However, rather than blaming each other for the situation, men and women are increasingly willing to work together to learn about their new roles. It will take time to sort out all the implications of the changing gender roles of Canadians, but new expectations should result in better work environment, better relationships, better education, and better lives for everyone in the community.
