"Why Establish This Paper?" is a great title for the editorial written by Mary Ann Shadd Cary. It was published in the second issue of her newspaper, the Provincial Freeman (March 25, 1854).

Reading Response #5 As Cynthia Ozick says in her essay “She: Portrait of the Essay as a Warm Body”, “an essayist must be an artist”. In this essay she explains the importance of writers when it comes to essays. Each essay has a different content, but they each embody their writer.

When debates about multiculturalism breaks out, what usually comes to mind would be the how the Aboriginals and many ethnics faced the so called “Canadian Citizenship” dilemma. And in the article “Citizenship + Cultural Belonging”, Chariandy and McCall explicitly describes how many ethnics suffer due to their cultural background and the attempts of the predominantly white society diminishes their rights and culture.
