After Conservative leadership hopeful Kellie Leitch attracted national attention with a proposal to screen would-be newcomers to Canada for “anti-Canadian values," the great minds of our nation found themselves fixated on one question this week:
Which is the real threat to our nation: World views held by a faction of immigrants to Canada — or Kellie Leitch’s divisive politics?
The leaders of the left claim screening for anti-Canadian values is somehow racist, while contemptible conservatives warn that screening beliefs will inevitably lead us down a slippery Orwellian slope of punishment for thought crime.
Meantime, innumerable armchair pundits claim there’s no such thing as Canadian values, so, “Who is any government to judge?”
So, tonight a public service announcement:
There is such a thing as Canadian values.
And, a warning:
It is precisely because of the contemporary Canadian’s unwillingness to name and defend those values, that each one of our values has made its way onto an endangered species list.
