Great Things About Canada Aaliyah persaud

The Raptors

The Raptors are a great team that has shown so much hard work. They were founded in 1995 ("Laying the Groundwork for the NBA in Toronto"), Dwane Casey is the coach of all 15 players ("Toronto Raptors Roster"); the 2 well known players are DeMar DeRozen who makes $27, 739, 975 and Kyle Lowry who makes 12, 000, 000 ("Toronto Raptors: Team salaries and contracts”). The Raptors results of 2015-2016 games are 66 wins and 36 losses ("Land Of Basketball.com").

Their important to me because they represent my country and they're my favourite basketball team. They should be valued because they represent us, they worked hard for this and I think this shows that you have to work hard for what you want.

Caribana

Caribana is an event that is filled with fun and good vibes. All the different types of foods; Jerk Chicken, Pepper pot and Cuban Sandwich. Come from all around ( Guyana, Trinidad, Jamaica, Cuba). Caribana is filled with 10, 000 masquerades from all types of places, people walk and dance 3.6 km of toronto in costumes. Many different music, mostly soca, calypso, dancehall and reggae. If you can't make it to caribana; you can go to 3 other types of carnivals that are related to caribana, Pan Alive, Junior carnival parade and King and Queen competition ("Your Guide to Toronto Caribana 2017"). They all still have the same type of music and food.

It's important to me because my background is Guyanese and it shows people what type of food we eat and what type of music we listen to. It should be valued because it's part of the people in our community, it shows how welcoming Canada is.

Welcoming

"To those fleeing persecution, terror and war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength #WelcomeToCanada" - Justin Trudeau, Trudeau puts this tweet out their for people to understand that we welcome them no matter what their race or religion is, Judaism, Christianity, islam, Hinduism and many more (Ljunggren David and Anna Mehler Paperny). Canadians are friendly, unpretentious people who value honesty, sensitivity, empathy, and humility in their relationship with friend and stranger, as well as the respect for the privacy and individualism of others. ("Canadian Manners and Etiquette").

It's important to me because i want people to feel welcome and feel like they can be who they want to be, but at the same time they should be respectful of others. It should be valued because everyone should feel safe and respected with their religion.
