Kellie Leitch is standing for the leadership of the Conservative Party of Canada and her number one policy is screening all visitors, refugees and immigrants for Canadian Values
She believes that people who want to immigrate to Canada should be asked questions like these:
- Are men and woman equal, and entitled to equal protection under the law?
- Is it ever ok to coerce or use violence against an individual or a group who disagrees with your views?
- Do you recognise that to have a good life in Canada you will need to work hard to provide for yourself and your family and that you can’t expect to have things you want to be given to you?
Wouldn’t it be great if immigrants to New Zealand were screened for New Zealand values? Even if the values immigrants were screened for were liberal left-wing values that would still be useful. Immigrants most likely to harm our society do not share the Left’s compassion for people who are different and unlike the Left they are not tolerant of alternative lifestyles or different religions, cultures and races. I actually think that Labour or Green voting immigration officers would be perfect for the job of screening immigrants for values that will allow them to integrate and assimilate into our society. If the immigration officers were transgender or gay that would be even better as it would be hard for some immigrants to hide their disgust.
