Quote of the day - George Jonas - multiculturism

Multicultural Canada is turning from a country of two nations into a country of a dozen xenoliths: Inward looking, hostile fragments, jealously guarding their ethno-religious distinctions as entitlements, while resenting the entitlements of others as privileges. It's scant consolation that, being culturally silver-plated, such groups are likely to express their sectarian sentiments in idiomatic suburban English, sometimes peppered with current slang, Internet lingo or even mock-liberal concerns.

"By their fruits shall ye know them." We disdained the American melting pot and embraced multiculturalism instead. We forgot that the opposite of integration is disintegration.
