Editor’s note: This story about Canadian multiculturalism was originally a single 3,600 word article meant for a British magazine. I decided to turn it into a mini-series. It tells the story of Peter, a Lebanese-Canadian youth and his experience of Canadian multiculturalism. He meets different people through his life who influence his thoughts. Although this tale contains many true elements and anecdotes, it is a work of fiction. Read part 1 here and 2 here.
I remember a conversation I once had with three good friends of mine at one of their apartments some two years ago. We were debating politics.
“Quebec should separate!” said Jean-Philippe.
“Canada is just a bunch of provinces spliced together.” said Sarah.
