This section of our reporting explores the culture across Canada and how this is represented within our public policy and government.
There is no single Canadian culture, but rather a rich tapestry of diverse customs and traditions that have been woven together over the centuries. Canada is home to many different ethnic groups, each with their own unique heritage. As a result, Canadian culture is constantly evolving, adapted to the ever-changing demographics of our country. Across the provinces, there are also significant regional differences in culture. In Quebec, for example, French is the predominant language and many of the customs and traditions have roots in French culture. In contrast, English Canadian culture has been heavily influenced by the British.
These differing cultural traditions help to make Canada a truly dynamic and vibrant country.

It’s easy to forget this and get caught up in geography, climate, grape variety, cellar equipment, or whatever else and forget about the minds that make the decisions about what ends up in the glass.
A generation of teachers has been steeped in the progressive educational theories of John Dewey and his more radical successors, who viewed education as a vehicle for delegitimizing a society’s cultural inheritance and dismantling its customs and institutions.
The risk of a growing generational fissure shouldn’t be underestimated. It threatens the rise of a zero-sum political dynamic that essentially pits younger generations against their parents and grandparents.
