We always say Canada is a multiculturalism country. However, what is multiculturalism? A country that is full of people with different cultural backgrounds and different races living together in peace. Canada is a multicultural society, so an increasing number of immigrants came to Canada, mostly from African, Asian, and Caribbean countries. But in Canadian history of multiculturalism has started with xenophobic approach to immigrants. In the beginning of 20th century, immigrants could not be recognized as a Canadians in any case, because only white British population had a right to be treated as Canadians. So I will argue that the multiculturalism status of Canada with contradictory immigration policies.
I will use the primary source Rainbow War, 1986. This video is a short movie was created by 1986 Vancouver EXPO. It talked a story about three different colors kingdoms. There were red, yellow, and blue. While each kingdom hates the other for their differences, life is peaceful because there is no way to travel between kingdoms. This peace is shattered when a young Yellow inventor creates a flying contraption and crashes into the Red leader 's daughter. What follows is, of course, a war of colorful paint between the three kingdoms. The Rainbow War has ended, and all kingdoms now live together, happily ever after. Although this story was not real, we could see our reality through this story. This primary source Rainbow War is a good example for multiculturalism.
