I often tell Uk Tory friends and GOP friends that the should learn from HM Minister of Citizenship Jason Kenney. Seems the UK Tories are doing just that. British PM seeks Jason Kenney’s advice on courting ethnic minorities Postmedia News Apr 9, 2012 – 7:49 PM ET By Randy Boswell Britain’s ruling Conservative Party is reportedly seeking Jason Kenney’s help with an outreach effort among the U.K.’s ethnic minorities, longtime backers of the Labour party. British news reports have quoted Conservative officials saying the party’s bid to achieve a parliamentary majority will only succeed if, like Canada’s Stephen Harper, Prime Minister David Cameron can broaden the Tories’ appeal among immigrants from India, Pakistan and elsewhere. At the centre of the Conservatives’ wooing of Canadian ethnic minorities has been Mr. Kenney, Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism. The Calgary MP is renowned for attending countless ethnic festivals across the country, waving the Conservative flag and cementing new bonds between the party and various immigrant communities.
