Leitch Attacked

Protesters hang banner with names of Quebec shooting victims on Conservative MP’s office

Conservative leadership candidate Kellie Leitch says her supporters shouldn’t be dismissed as racist for backing her proposal to screen prospective immigrants for “anti-Canadian values,” and she won’t rescind her policy pledge despite criticism from some after the Quebec mosque shooting.

In an interview with CBC News, Leitch said she still believes all prospective immigrants should take part in a one-on-one interview with officials before being admitted.

“I’ve been talking about a common-sense policy that talks about interviewing individuals, each and every individual, no matter what their place of origin,” she said Tuesday.

“We have a Canadian identity, and it’s grounded in values like hard work, generosity, freedom and tolerance. Those are the values that built our country, and those are the values that I’m talking about.”

Her resolve to push ahead comes on a day when her constituency office in Collingwood, Ont., was targeted by protesters.

What we can’t even put a number on is how many were successful. All else aside and despite this evidence, and Iran being but one of the countries Pres. Trump has put a ‘temporary hold’ on for well founded national security concerns, Trudeau proudly announces (on behalf of all Canadians no doubt) to those so affected by the 90 day hold… Read more »

My wife and I too noted the absence of the red Maple Leaf flag at these funerals. Neither did it go unnoticed that the dead were going to be sent to their ‘home countries’ for burial. Nothing to see here folks, move along. Oh ya, one more thing. To our college drop out snow board instructor hypocritical PM who claims to speak for ‘all’ Canadians. You don’t now nor are you EVER authorized to speak for me about ANYTHING. Full stop.

The shooting in Quebec. Whomever said never let a good crisis go to waste had this tragety in mind. Trudeau and Cuirrard and Coderre all give us their version of a canadian is a canadian….. and this trio plus Mulcare are front and center, not to be missed by any camera, at the funeral, held in a montreal arena. I wonder who thought of that one? It was not lost on me that these, family men all, part of the “canadia/quebec fabric” had national flags draping their caskets, no maple leaf in sight ladies and gentleman, prior to being delivered… Read more »
