Look to Canada

Reader comment on item: Reflections on the Revolution in France*

Submitted by Steve (Canada), Nov 8, 2005 at 13:21

You present such a cynical view on multiculturalism, but it can and does work in non-European countries. Look to the example Canada has set in integrating peoples of different backgrounds into national life. There will always be problems and challenges in dealing with a multicultural society, but Canada, on the whole, works. Why? Because we believe in equality, mutual respect, and tolerance. Give these Muslim youth a chance and they will buy into the French system. Continue to ostracize them and you will get more burnt cars.
