Do you get tired of people just implying, without any proof, that conservatives are racists, bigots, anti-immigrant?
This weekk, CBC engaged in this kind of drive by smear, and it wasn’t on one of their political programs. It wasn’t on a comedy show. It was on The National.
In a segment on talking to voters about the election, CBC found a young woman who is voting for the first time.
This young woman, an immigrant from Venezuela, says Canada isn’t welcoming to immigrants anymore, and that's the fault of the current government.
This woman only came to Canada in 2010. She is already a citizen, she can vote already, in just five years.
In 2010 Canada accepted 280,687 new permanent residents, the highest number in history. That figure doesn't even include foreign students and workers.
Immigration settlement spending is also up, to almost $1 billion a year.
When my parents came to Canada, the country welcomed you but they didn’t spend piles of money to help you fit in.
Now we spend a ton of money, but the Harper government isn’t welcoming of immigrants?
Next progressives will say: Harper and the Conservatives only like white immigrants.
China, India and the Philippines are the top three source countries for Canada. Those places aren’t predominantly white, not even close.
Then we hear that Harper hates Muslims.
But the Muslim population in Canada more than doubled between the 2001 and 2011 census takings.
I’m tired off this false narrative going unchallenged.
