Learning About Where I Live

This month at Quest I decided to take a class called “Canadian Studies”. While this class does not directly relate to my question, “What is belief?” I decided it would be a good idea to learn more about my “new” home. Coming from the U.S I learned very little about Canada in school. Since I’ve been here I’ve learned a lot about Canadian culture, but less about history and politics. This class has engaged me on a whole new level about the intricacies of Canadian politics and identity. The central theme in this course is “What is Canada?”. While this may seem like a vague question, exploring it has led us to look deeply at the connections between the diverse  people that live here and how they form a Canadian identity. Overall this class has been a pleasant surprise and I look forward to the next two weeks!
