'Where do any of us come from in this cold country?
Oh Canada, whether you admitted it or not, we come from you we come from you. From the same soil, the slugs and slime and bogs and twigs and roots.'


—Joy Kogawa, author of Obasan.

'Our understanding of the interior lives of those who are not like us is contingent on their ability to articulate themselves in the language we know.'


—Samra Habib, author of We Have Always Been Here.
