Way to use that spine McGuinty, now on to those 213 unfullfilled campaigne promises! OYE!
Thanks for keeping us posted on this interesting topic. Glad it turned out this way.
I'm wondering if this will not cause more conflict for Queens' park, considering the content of the Arbitration act. Might not be over yet.
Anyway, as this issue unfolded, I think the position of the Muslim community was a real eye opener for many Canadians, who for the most part do not feel multi-culturalism can cause problems.
According to the article the Muslim community itself is divided on the issue.
Sorry, should have said "Muslim community in support of the use of Sharia Law".
Hopefully the ones against it are the "silent majority".
3 texan cheers to McGuinty who has apparently seen that multi-culturalism did NOT make Canada a stronger country.
Beating the "Multicultural" horse again?
Canada has English, French and the various Inuit languages as official languages. If that's not multi-cultural, what is?
When they had the opportunity to become less multi-cultural by granting Quebec independence, they didn't.
Not to mention the strong Asian presence. Vancouver is basically run by Chinese.
Canada is multicultural at the core, like it or not.
While Canada is in strong support of multi-culturalism, we are just recently seeing issues such as Sharia Law pop up. In the past, most culturally related conflicts have generally been French/English, but the muslim community has grown significantly over the last 15 yrs since religious arbitration was deemed an acceptable alternative in settling civil and family matters.
No---actually it was in the article Said posted if you read it. McGuinty is not banning the speaking of French, closing down Mexican restaurants or melting igloos. You need to get your definition of multi-culturalism straight here.
Having ONE CANDIAN law as opposed to having several (depending on what culture you prefer) is stronger and takes priority. If one does NOT support multi- culturalism it doesn't mean they want to deport or destroy anything that is not Canadian. It merely creates a priority and helps create a bridge between cultures as opposed to having one country with 50 million "norms".
