Canadian Immigration Overview
VII. Becoming Canadian
I think this is the greatest country in the world. I have had nothing but wonderful experiences since coming to Canada. When I speak to young people about my experiences during the Holocaust, I always ask them to keep an open mind when they see and meet newcomers to this country. I ask them to experience the adventure of getting to know other kinds of people. Each one of us possesses unique and wonderful qualities, regardless of colour or religion.
