Mr. Speaker, this is a shameful quote:
institutionalized multiculturalism as a taxpayer-funded program has run its course.
That is direct from the 2004 Conservative policy book.
This past weekend, the Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism stunned immigrant Canadians by stating:
We don't need the state to promote diversity.
It is clear that Conservative Reform roots are coming out and showing up once again. Why is the Conservative government abandoning multiculturalism and forcing Canadians to choose between diversity and integration?
