MALCOLM: A focus on integration is key to defeating Sharia

North America has long been a land of freedom and opportunity, and Canada has a proud history of welcoming newcomers and integrating them into our society. Integration is key, and it’s based on the idea that newcomers embrace our values and institutions while being free to pursue their own hopes and dreams.

Newcomers enjoy all the rights and fundamental freedoms of Canadian citizenship, and in return, they are asked to embrace our way of life and adhere to Canadian laws. Immigration only works when it’s based on integration; it fails when integration is sacrificed to the doctrine of official multiculturalism.

An end to immigration from Islamic states is the better solution.
