Making Green Multicultural

Sounds Like Canada

I went on my first national program: Sounds Like Canada. The conversation was very interesting, and it was very comforting to know that there are other cultural groups out there working for the same cause.

It was a great exchange. However, I was expecting more. I was expecting an open conversation that focuses on solutions, focuses on HOW-TO, whether it’d be how to help the green movement to understand the needs of cultural community, or things that have worked for their communities which may also work for other groups.

When asked about the environmental demands on China pressured by the developed countries such as US, I did not comment. But what was going in my mind was David Suzuki’s comment on climate change: “We’re in a giant car heading towards a brick wall and everyone’s arguing over where they’re going to sit.” This is how I feel when I left the studio that day.
