Flight and Freedom: Stories of Escape to Canada By Ratna Omidvar and Dana Wagner (196)

This book has been in the making for many years. It is a narrative of flight with the other people in this book. Canada is a country of immigrants and refugees. It is becoming a multi-cultural country, one that is as deep as it is complex.

Many Canadians don’t understand some of the backgrounds that the refugees came from before they arrived to Canada in the hope of a better life for themselves and their families.

This book follows the story of 30 refugees. It encapsulates their story and their unique backgrounds. It is a testament of how great a country Canada is and how all-inclusive and inviting we really are.

Canada is a kind, fair, compassionate and generous place for people who are from outside of our country. We open our homes and pocket books for refugees because we want them to have a chance at a better life.

This book will make you be very proud to be a Canadian. It is a book that is a testament to the generosity and wonderfulness of this vast and beautiful land which turns 150 years old this year!
