I was scanning a number of online media from the Great White North and came across a piece in the National Post.It was about the latest immigration booklet that has come out. In it Canada has taken a stand against things like honor killings and other cultural/religious barbarities.
This part really threw me.
Although Liberal immigration critic Maurizio Bevilacqua said he welcomes the firm language regarding the equality of men and women, he said the document should be assessed not only for what it includes, but also for what it excludes.
“Why wasn’t white-collar crime mentioned, for example?” Mr. Bevilacqua said. “This must be what the current government wanted to highlight and prioritize.”
For Mr. Muhammad, the new guide is a stepping stone that should be bolstered by stricter immigration processes.
“Canada needs to be more thorough in checking people’s background because right now, as it stands, lots of people who support honour killings can slip into the system,” he said. “Let people take offence. People who come to Canada must be law-abiding citizens.”
Ok the Muslim guy is for it and the lefty canuck is wondering about stock traders?
