Putting an End to Indifference and Racism
By Marilyne Alie
Marilyne Alie is a student in the International Baccalaureate Program at Vanier College in Montréal. 

We must put an end to indifference and racism, and art can be an excellent way to communicate ideas.

Paris on Two Wheels
By Miriam Rabkin, Contributor to Tolerance.ca®
The first time I heard about Vélib was this past summer, when my brother returned from a vacation in Paris. He told me about this wonderful new system where you could rent a bike and in this way visit the city without depending on the metro or buses. It was now easily possible to see the Eiffel Tower and the Notre Dame Cathedral within a half hour, all the while taking in all of Paris’s beautiful sites. So you can imagine my excitement when I landed in Paris just two weeks ago, looking forward to discovering Paris by bike myself. (Full Story)

What are the positive aspects of diversity in a city like Montreal, and a campus like Vanier College? Are there any possible “downsides” to diversity – problems that a society will encounter when diverse populations live together? Does the mainstream really accept diversity, or are there subtle presumes to make diverse people fit into a particular social mold or common identity? (Full Story)

Multiculturalism in the New Millennium: Does it Reinforce Unity or Exacerbate Differences ?
By Miriam Rabkin, Contributor to Tolerance.ca®
Many Canadians take pride in the fact that their country is a world leader when it comes to multiculturalism. Yet things have shifted in the past few years. 9/11, the ‘war on terror’ and religious manifestations in the public domain have raised some worries and hostility in regard to multicultural policies and specific minorities. Tolerance.ca interviewed specialists and spoke to students and recent graduates on questions raised by this new reality. Does multiculturalism reinforce our feeling of belonging to Canadian society or does it exacerbate our differences? (Full Story)
