Montreal Is an Open City for Multiculturalism!

In the article “Montreal is open-minded, inclusive and tolerant” written by Javier Pérez Mandujano states that animals, are often more loving and has more respect and loyalty towards others than humans because individuals likes to be critical to one another. Mandujano was walking through Old Montreal and realized that his previous thoughts of the human kind was wrong. The city of Montreal is very open minded and accepting of other cultures, of other colors and of other sexual preferences. For example with the Little Italy and the gay village. It seemed that every citizen of Montreal has the freedom of racism. Mandujano also presents the fact that no matter what you wear, on one’s body or head, whatever symbol of religious beliefs is on a person’s body or not matter what the skin color is, everyone has respect for each other, they have understanding of what they are going through and their support. To sum up, Mandujano’s first thought of Montreal was that it was a very respectful city which included many different individuals.
This article contains valid arguments but also contains bias opinions. It is true that Montreal has different citizens coming from all over the world. This means that there are many different nationalities, ‘races’ and religions. When somebody first visits this big city, I understand why they would think that it is an accepting place. But at the same time he doesn’t exactly know what every individual is going through in their personal life. For example, it may seem like they are the happiest people in the whole world, but in fact they are miserable because they are bullied every day due to their skin color or religion. This is why Mandujano’s opinions are bias. Even though Montreal contains many different kinds of people, it doesn’t mean that the people inside the city is accepting everyone else.
