Canada: where would it be without immigrants?

An article written by Jonathan Kaiman featured in the british newspaper The Guardian this September, an article that may make us question Canada’s reputation as the friendliest place on earth.

Harper’s supposed tougher line on immigration, relaxation of environmental protection laws, the exploitation of tar sands, the election of Marois’ Parti Quebecois and the mistreatment of Canada’s First Nations are all examples held up by Kaiman as proof of the emergence of a more right-wing, less eco-friendly and more divided Canada.

13 days later, a certain Jason Kenney replied to the allegations made by Kaiman about Canada’s apparent social and political changes (for the worse) in an attempt to counteract and shut down these negative view points.

I will leave it up to you, the reader, to decide who you agree with…
