I was born in India. I am proud of my ancient heritage, but I am Canadian. I am loyal to the Canadian Crown and I am fully involved in the life of my community. I still attend cultural and religious events of the Malayalee Christian community that I was born into, but those events are ashould be paid for by ourselves. Multiculturalism has been a policy of ghettoization mixed in with bribes to obtain votes for trudeau and his grits. Many in the ethnic communities are beginning to understand. A good piece by Angelo Pershilli. Living in Canada while pretending to still completely live in your culture of origin is bad for the immigrant and bad for Canada.
But Finestone gave me the right answer: Multiculturalism is a Canadian policy — but it’s not for all Canadians. I believe in a country where all citizens can fully retain their own culture but this leads people to believe that all cultures have the same rights.
This has not happened in Canada, where there are still two predominant cultures — the French and English — also known as the “founding cultures,” and all the others. We shouldn’t confuse the rights of individuals with the rights of cultures as a group. In fact, this policy pushes people back into their cultural ghetto, and then it invites individuals, often as guests, into the cultural mainstream.
