Speaking in Davos on Jan. 21, 2016, Justin Trudeau, Canada’s prime minister spoke eloquently about why multiculturalism needs to be an integral part of all children’s education, as you can see in the video above. It’s important, he said, that everyone have the tools to understand “you don’t have to choose between the identity that your parents have and being a full citizen of Canada.”

The sooner we get over this ‘us’ and ‘them’ mentality the better we can and more empowered we can all be. I think it’s it’s such an empowering message, I heard music that had Tagalog on it this afternoon listening to Triple J, I have sushi for lunch and I’ve just travelled Europe visiting friends I had made from studying in the USA.

This is the world we live in today!
