Diversity isn’t unity

“…What sorts of people are we willing and able to accept into our country and what will their impact be, not only today but in the future?

Are we willing to accept those whose sense of identity is so strongly attached to their racial or religious group that they are unable or unwilling to adapt to life in Canada?

Why would we when we have a country that is already divided along ethnocultural lines, including the “nation within a nation” of Quebec, the 600 or more First Nations groups and the various enclaves of other immigrant groups?

How can we ever emerge as a strong, unified country with all these fault lines?

The catchy, sweet-sounding slogan of “unity in diversity” is a crock.

If the only thing we have in common is our differences, then we have very little in common.

The Liberal government’s proposed changes to accepting newcomers reinforce divisions among first generation immigrants and do nothing to promote national unity.”

    Diversity of culture is a curse.

    • I used to think it was just well meaning nonsense now I realize it’s a deadly serious threat.

    I thought that the identity of Canada was wholly centered on the fact that you WERE NOT Americans, and an unnatural affinity for maple syrup. 😉

    • That too.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Actually, it isn’t maple syrup that Canadians are nuts about, it’s bacon-cheddar perogies that drives them. Preferably with sour cream and/or salsa.

      For me, it’s just the natural affinity for beating people with hockey sticks.

    when I read stuff like this and realise he is our so-called prime minister the bile rises in my mouth

  • David Smith

    When did he say that?

    • New York Times article


      “Terrorist groups have specifically said they are targeting Canada and Canadians. And on the subject of national security, Trudeau’s critics say he’s a lightweight and a dangerous one. Trudeau’s most radical argument is that Canada is becoming a new kind of state, defined not by its European history but by the multiplicity of its identities from all over the world. His embrace of a pan-cultural heritage makes him an avatar of his father’s vision. ‘‘There is no core identity, no mainstream in Canada,’’ he claimed. ‘‘There are shared values — openness, respect, compassion, willingness to work hard, to be there for each other, to search for equality and justice. Those qualities are what make us the first postnational state.’’

    My son-in-law’s brother’s wife (he’s a cop by the way) looked me straight in the face and said “he’s got nice hair and he’s gonna legalize pot”. You just can’t fix stupid. And it’s even harder to fix the crap they cause.

    • Justin St.Denis

      My sons told me the same thing. My eldest heard it said among his employees in the warehouse. Needless to say, he’s looking at who to replace now.

  • Me Here

    IF Canada IS the “First Post Nation State” then it doesn’t need a PM useful idiot. So do yourselves a favor and eliminate useful idiot and become a NATION AGAIN. So Simple even a useful idiot might figure it out.

  • Me Here

    In Australia we have an unelected PM useless idiot, TOP THAT Canada.<:o)

  • Ron MacDonald

    Progressives have 100% control over this idiot, he belongs in the newly hijacked NDP.

  • Shebel

    I need someone to apologise to because
    I am a new Liberalized Canadian and I am so ashamed.

    Would ALL you fucking victims—
    Please put forth your plight.
