Justin Trudeau's Liberal government has ravaged the Canadian citizenship guide and removed warnings stating barbaric cultural practices such as genital mutilation and honour killings are crimes.
According to CTV, “respecting treaties with Indigenous Peoples, paying taxes and filling out the census” are listed as mandatory obligations of Canadian citizenship in a draft version of a new study guide.
However, in this re-write, “getting a job” is no longer listed as a responsibility of citizenship.
Also concerning is listing “respecting the human rights of others” as simply being voluntary and not mandatory.
Remember, the Syrian refugee who brutally beat his wife with a hockey stick did so because “officials didn’t inform him of differences in Canadian laws”.
The draft guide also chooses to be critical of Canada's past with several references to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s report on residential schools and instances where Chinese and South Asians were discriminated against.
