Canadian values matter, but so do the details
by Farzana Hassan
Conservative leadership candidate Kellie Leitch's idea of vetting immigrants for Canadian values seems to be gaining traction. The latest polls show 74% support among Canadians for testing immigrants for undesirable traits like misogyny and for attitudes to violence.
It seems like an attractive proposal to those enlightened enough to perceive that the issue is not ethnicity but ideology.
Some who reject Leitch's campaign proposal contend there is no such thing as a Canadian value, as Canada is far too diverse. I disagree and see this as a convenient cop-out.
