The Canadian government is already telling people what their values should be

What may be most remarkable about the political and media storm that emerged as a result of Conservative Party leadership contender Kellie Leitch’s proposal that immigrants be screened for “anti-Canadian values” is most Canadians’ apparent lack of self-awareness.

The idea that one set of values may be preferable to another or that the government has no place in setting them are arguable positions. But for anyone claim that this is something new and controversial, or that it isn’t current government policy in Canada indicates that Canadians have no idea what their government-run education system or government information programs are doing.

    Can’t wait for President Trump to put Pretty Boy in his place.

    • I look forward to that.

      I hope also to see it come to pass. The little pissant wouldn’t stand a chance.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Wouldn’t that be lovely? I just hope the cameras are on when it happens. 🙂

    Oh no, we can’t possibly screen for Canadian values. No no no.

    Never mind that the CBC and the rest of the media can somehow screen out anyone who isn’t part of the loony Left.

  • WalterBannon

    one set of values is preferable to another

    The problem is that the government has ALREADY intervened to promote one set of values over another

    Do people still think its an accident that they are importing all this third world garbage?

    The left has been social engineering for many decades now

    The Coudenhove-Kalergi plan

  • Why is refusing entry to Jew-haters the opposite of Canadian values?

    • Exile1981

      Not just jew haters but anti-democracry, anti-freedom and anti equal rights.

  • J. C.

    My values are pretty much the opposite of whatever Justin claims to be ‘Canadian values’…

    Screen for …. CANADIAN VALUES?
    None of them have CANADIAN VALUES!!!! (racist!)
    THEY ALL COME FROM ….
    DIFFERENT COUNTRIES …..
    WITH DIFFERENT SETS OF VALUES.
    .
    Now.
    If you are NOT a racist…
    You will acknowledge that each country has it’s own value system and…
    you none-racist will accept each countries right to it’s own self-determiNATION
    .
    The WORLD IS MULTICULTURAL
    ….and we are all strung together by bits & bites 010101111000000010101
    =WE ARE ALL CONNECTED
    Our technological age allows us to influence each other
    Each NATION will take an idea and put it’s own individual spin to it
    A RACIST NATION forces it’s own interpretation on others,
    whether it is through …
    raping a million 10-16 girls
    ….or….
    sending in troops/the Red Cross/sending many goats which eat up all the grass
    Whether you “negotiate” or send a “bomb” the intent is the same
    .
    Forcing too much individualism in a small space such as towns/cities creates a lot of arguments and that is no fun for anyone
    People form “groups”
    It is the nature of human beings
    Don’t fight it…you will have a more pleasant life
    .
    Canada will have many Black Lives Matters groups down the road and many civil wars with this multicultural route we have taken
    .
    A leader always rises … which cultural values do you hope this group has?.
    .
    about all you can do is a contract with immigrants
    THESE ARE OUR VALUES
    YOU EITHER AGREE TO THIS OR YOU DO NOT COME IN
    …however they can fib and say “oh yes I agree to all of it”
    then once they have enough of their cultural group in they majority vote us in to a dictatorship
