I’ve been asking this since I was 12. Nice to see everyone catching up!
Why? Because they don’t have to. They live in their Little Italy, their Chinatown, their Little India or their Little Arabia — you name an ethnic group and an ethnic enclave will exist — and they don’t have to venture outside it because the screws have not been tightened on who we will accept as contributing immigrants.
And what ferments so often in many of these single-cultural, often state-dependent ghettos are the religious prejudices and ethnic hatreds of their homelands.
It’s bad baggage.
Why should anyone be allowed into Canada who has no facility in either of our official languages, or any commitment to learn and be tested, and who believe it is acceptable to disrupt this country with the radical ideologies and distasteful mindset of the countries they fled?
