We need to extend Pier 21 across Canada
Description: Laura Madokoro, a PhD candidate in history at UBC and 2009 Trudeau Scholar and Liu Institute Scholar, disagrees with the Conservative government's idea for Pier 21 to represent Canada's immigration story. "Rather than concentrating all of its energies in one place, the government should be encouraging the development of immigration centres across the country," writes Madokoro. "Connecting the past with the present is the magic of Pier 21. But there's no reason why Western Canadians shouldn't experience the same thrill."
