231. Inclusion 

Canada is widely lauded as a country that is inclusive, trustworthy and an upstanding part of the international community. As global politics seemingly regresses into more primitive terror tactics, with hyperbole holding as much value as hard fact, we are seeing societies becoming slowly riddled by the cancer of xenophobia, hate and fear. In this terrifying time of human failing, it’s refreshing to see Trudeau’s establishment make strides to continue Canada’s progress as a country leading the charge of equality, peace and progress. I wrote this haiku about what having a Canadian passport means to me. 

Never felt prouder,

Of where I took my first breathe, 

Love of all, is mine.
