Doublethink in Canada’s Conservative Party

I have a question for the current and would-be leaders of the federal Conservatives, who have denounced Kellie Leitch’s proposal to screen potential immigrants for anti-Canadian values.

If you think, as Interim Conservative Leader Rona Ambrose has stated, that Donald Trump’s values should disqualify him from being a conservative, let alone president of the United States, why don’t you think the values of the people to whom we grant Canadian citizenship are important?

You can’t have it both ways.

You can’t argue in one breath that Trump’s values are anti-Canadian and then say in the next it’s hard to know what Canadian values are.
