The feigned outrage continues over Kellie Leitch’s supposedly-contentious point that we should screen would-be immigrants to weed out those who hold values that are anti-Canadian.
Until 2002, Canada conducted in-person interviews with all potential immigrants, to determine “personal suitability” for Canadian citizenship.
In other words, they would screen for anti-Canadian values.
How is any of this controversial?
It’s irresponsible to pretend that there are no core Canadian values, as Justin Trudeau recently suggested in a New York Times interview.
And it's unethical to turn a blind eye to barbaric culture practices in Canada.
Sex-selected abortions have become a major problem in Canada.
What about women forced to cover themselves from head to toe before they can leave the house?
Those cultural practices do not reflect Canadian values.
And, no, it isn't "racist" to raise these issues, and lead a conversation.
