Justin Trudeau shuffled his cabinet this week. The amazingly clueless John McCallum has been shuffled out as immigration minister — the same McCallum who rushed in tens of thousands of Muslim migrants last year, without any meaningful vetting.
In his place, they put Ahmed Hussen — who is, himself, a Somali refugee.
Back in 2011, Hussen testified before a U.S. congressional committee, about how to counter the radicalization of Somali youth.
I’ll play you his testimony, but here’s a good example:
I am a Canadian Muslim who is proud of his faith and heritage. I believe that the Canadian and American values of democracy, liberty, rule of law, human rights and respect for minorities do not contradict the tenets of my faith.
If the Ahmed Hussen of 2017 is allowed to be the same Ahmed Hussen who spoke to Congress in 2011, Canada’s Muslim communities will be made a lot safer, a lot happier, and a lot more Canadian.
I don’t think that Trudeau himself would agree with Hussen on Canadian values, or the need to integrate Muslims, and the need to promote values like the rule of law, liberty, and integration…
NEXT: Blaine Calkins, Conservative MP for Red Deer—Lacombe joins me to talk about the complaint he filed with Parliament’s Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner, concerning Trudeau's free trip to the Aga Khan's private island.
THEN: Lorne Gunter comes on to discuss Premier Rachel Notley's face off with Jane Fonda, who visited Alberta on behalf of Greenpeace to criticize the oil sands.
FINALLY: I read your messages to me!
