Telling newcomers to abide by our values is nothing new

Federal Conservative leadership candidates, now lining up to bash rival Kellie Leitch for daring to suggest we should screen immigrants for anti-Canadian values, apparently never read, or never understood, their own government’s policies on this issue.

Below are immigration policies specific to the previous Conservative government on the Government of Canada website, where you can still find them today.

    ” . . . bash RIVAL Kellie Leitch for daring. . .” Rival seems to be the key word there. They are probably quite aware of the previous government’s policies, they’re just virtue signaling, less than 100% honest, mud slinging, regular career politicians. Although I’m still weary of Leitch after this little gem :

    I got a party financing letter from her not long after this public strong arming of Canadian companies and wrote her back asking her how putting artificial quotas ahead of talent, education and experience would help Canadian companies, I sadly never got an answer.

      I continue getting requests for donations and to renew my party membership, even though I answered the same request ages ago explaining why I could not in good faith continue donating. I made it clear that mass immigration, in particular Muslims and other 3rd world immigrants who have no intention of assimilating much less becoming productive Canadians must be addressed before I will consider donating. Of course I never go a reply but continue getting their requests. No point in writing again.

        Yes, when did immigration go from benefiting Canada to benefiting the rest of the world at our expense. When did we become our brother’s keeper. I would even ask when was it decided, and by who, that immigration would change the demographic make-up of the country. As best I can tell, 19% of Canadians identify a visible minority. Is this reflected in today’s immigration numbers?

    But according to Justin we are a “post-national state” and Canada has no culture or values.

    Shouldn’t we just be asking newcomers if they abide by Liberal Party values and follow sharia law?

      I think Justin was just “projecting” there.

    Cassandras can’t catch a break these days.

    Telling Newcomers to Abide by our Values or ‘Get to Fuck OUT’ is New.
    And Proper.

    Having the government suck the life, freedom and money out of the people is nothing new.
    Fraud, extortion, racketeering is their business.
    The mafia, at least, manges to show a profit.

    I’m glad the new PM got some of the Harper laws and dumped into a garbage container where all that belongs.

      Have you converted to Islam yet? You really seem to like the mass importation of Muslims, so I suspect you find Islam attractive.
