This October, Philippine Women Centre of Ontario (PWC-ON) invites everyone to celebrate a decade filled of shared laughter, tears, music and militancy. The round of events will kick off at the opening of the “Maleta” [Suitcase] Art Exhibit on October 10th. “Maleta” is a community-based arts project where members of the community unpack their history of forced migration through collectively-created visual and performance art. The exhibit will be open to the public at the Beit Zatoun House until the end of the month.

Getting past 'yes' or 'no'

Multicultiphobia

Multicultiphobia

by Phil Ryan
(University of Toronto Press,
2010;
$24.95)

Almost anything that goes wrong in minority communities can be blamed on multiculturalism, in the minds of some of its critics. They say multiculturalism, by celebrating diversity, not only encourages minorities to maintain possibly anti-democratic or sexist cultures and extraneous political agendas in Canada; it also exempts them from criticism based on mainstream values. Incompetence is excused, crimes are condoned and terrorist threats are ignored, all because multiculturalism makes people fear that criticism of minority groups, or even individual group members, will bring down accusations of racism.
