No, it used to be - now the number of immigrants means they can stay in their groups without mixing in with us.

Multiculturalism is a grossly over-rated feature. Look at UK - it's an explosive mixture looking for a spark to ignite it.

It seems to be becoming more multi-cultural, but remains (in most legislation etc) mostly bi-cultural

NZ is a lovely place and most people are friendly, but still cannot say it is a multicultural society as still some local people with narrow minded could not respect other cultures well........

It's a work in progress. 85% of Whanganui residents couldn't understand why Maori want their language respected. How culturally sensitive is that? Most of our broadcasters can't pronounce Maori place names. Many Maori can barely bring themselves to look me, a Pakeha, in the eye. We have a long way to go.

multicultural should mean that all cultures amalgamate into one culture. not imported cultures forced over the existing culture as hapens in NZ

NZ is more racist compare to Australia

Festivals may be multicultural but NZ is not. There are no laws based on the Koran; no school holidays based on heroes from other places...unless we count Queen Elizabeth and her (wrong time of year) birthday....

NZ is a multicultural society as is basically proven by the one person who chose to remain neutral. Judging from these comments, people seem to have a really bad attitude toward multiculturalism.
29 June 2009
why should we be outnumbered by too many immigrants

For now, but at this rate soon i think everyone will be Sikh.

NZ has and always will be a multicultural society. We are a land of immigrants, even the Maori came here on canoes a thousand years ago. No humans originated here, and all of us immigrated to this nation, coming from somewhere else.

Reasons for Remain Neutral
Auckland is multicultural and cosmopolitain with an ethnic breakdown of 55% European, 20% Asian/Other 15% Pacific and 15% Maori. The rest of NZ is bicultural with Euro/Maori making 90% of population at least
This isn't a question of opinion; it's a demographic.
