Beverley McLachlin : The Civilization of Difference

So a close examination of Canadas past can disclose both a strong foundation in the ethic of tolerance and inclusion, as well as the dark side of group belonging in the form of intolerant treatment. I want to explore both of these aspects of our heritage, in the hopes of ultimately demonstrating that, as Canada has matured and grown as a nation, we have embraced and cultivated the first of these traditions in order to do a better job of confronting the second we have learned to value and institutionalize the ethic of respect for difference as a means of combating exclusionary thinking.
