-Take a look at indie music in a select province or city, or discuss new music movements and how it is changing Canada.
-Canadian identity constructed through culture, (language, ethnicity, trend, styles, influences)
-Do Western social constructs re-inforce racism in Canada? Is there an good way of eradicating racism without erasing cultural identities?
