So that’s a thing I really love about Canada, is that it’s so multicultural. I haven’t seen so many different people living together in one city before in my life. It’s so inspiring and hopeful.
So, what do the people want for Canada? What’s going on here?
Last week, one of my classmates had asked me to join a team that was going to report on the election. I was super enthusiastic about it, I mean, live reporting about the elections? You don’t get to do that often!
So I came in later on Monday, because the teachers told us that it could be late. We would be there until about 9 p.m. I thought: “YES! That’s a cool experience! A night out at school.” And oh yes, take this literally. Eventually it was 11.20 p.m. when I got home! What is that with those hours here in BCIT?
But it was fun – in some way, haha. Everyone was working really hard and it was very exciting when the first results came out. However, I felt like I wasn’t really a part of it. It was like I had bought a ticket for such a complicated, weird movie in the cinema. You know, that kind of movie where you have no clue what is happening and you just keep watching it because all your other friends keep watching it? So yup, that was me. Sitting in the studio behind my laptop, watching the results coming out with a bunch of snacks. I really tried to write an article about it, but it was so difficult, because… How does this whole election system work??
But I got through it. Remember I told you that Canadian people are super nice and friendly? Well, they helped me to understand. And hey, at the end I had written 2 articles! Woehoe!
So I had fun and it was a nice experience when I think about it. I just realize that I’m not ready yet for foreign policy. Maybe in the future, who knows.
