My wish for Canada is to continue to be a multicultural place, yet there is no racist discrimination so that everyone can feel safe. I come from Japan and have been in Calgary for almost a year. So far, I am surprised how people have accepted each other's beliefs, religions, and languages. I love Canada for this. I really hope that Canada stays just like now for the next 150 years.
