Multicultural Fishers Welcome New In-Language App. The Victorian Government is making it easier for Victorian recreational anglers whose first language is Cantonese or Vietnamese to stay across fishing rules before casting a line. The free VicFishing smartphone app now offers in-language content, outlining bag and size limits, closed seasons and permitted fishing equipment, as well as colour illustrations of more than 100 fish species for which catch limits apply. The app, which is available for download via the App Store or Google Play, also consists of a 'Can I Fish Here' function to help anglers and divers avoid marine parks and sanctuaries.

Multiculturalism @50 and the Promise of a Just Society. Guest edited by eminent philosopher Will Kymlicka, this edition of Canadian Diversity explores the roots, characteristics, and structural fault lines of Canadian multiculturalism and outlines the reframing required if the policy hopes to live up to its initial promise of delivering a just society. It considers the evolution and public perceptions of Canadian multiculturalism and explores the drive to reframe the policy in a society increasingly aware of the problems caused by embedded social inequities and racism.
