Shedding light on ethnic literature
Many ethnic writers who are also Canadian citizens contribute in their mother tongue. In that respect, ethnic literature of Canada should be considered as part of Canadian literature. Writing about ethnic literature in mainstream media such as the Star makes all Canadians aware about the ethnic literature of Canada.
This will also help the governmental literary organizations of Canada learn about Canadian ethnic literature, ethnic writers and their contributions to Canadian literature. This will help ethnic writers to reach the resources of such governmental organizations.
