Dear Potential Immigrant, Pistol Whipping Your Multiple Wives While High On Khat Is Not Allowed In Canada

Immigration officials could block import of ‘illegal’ cultural norms

OTTAWA – The Admissibility Branch at Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) is asking immigration officers posted abroad to update head office about applicants’ actions that might be legal in their home country, but not legal in Canada, QMI Agency has learned.

“Domestic violence may not be proscribed in some countries, whereas in Canada it could be assault (or) sexual assault,” the July 2011 request states.

Immigration officials also cite polygamy, cultivating and marketing khat – a drug popular in East Africa — and carrying a concealed weapon as priority issues they’d like to hear about.
