Em­brace and cel­e­brate di­ver­sity

RE: Hate­ful pack­age out­side Cana­dian val­ues (Aug. 1)

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION -

Re­gard­ing this let­ter, the writer be­lieves Justin Trudeau con­tra­dicts him­self when he is quoted say­ing “the chal­lenge is to fo­cus on peo­ple’s sim­i­lar­i­ties and not their dif­fer­ences.” Dif­fer­ent from what Trudeau has said in the past with the words “we should, as Cana­di­ans, cel­e­brate and rel­ish our di­ver­sity.”

I am not the big­gest fan of Trudeau’s but I think I may know where he is com­ing from with that state­ment. To add an­other quote, this from the Amer­i­can au­thor Tom Rob­bins, “Our sim­i­lar­i­ties bring us to a com­mon ground; our dif­fer­ences al­low us to be fas­ci­nated by each other.”

Em­brace our sim­i­lar­i­ties cel­e­brate our di­ver­sity we are all in this to­gether. David Avery, Hamil­ton
