1/ Trudeau keeps pushing his “diversity is our strength” slogan. Yes, Canada is a huge and diverse country. This diversity is part of us and should be celebrated. But where do we draw the line? Diversity is what makes Canada strong: Trudeau

2/ Ethnic, religious, linguistic, sexual and other minorities were unjustly repressed in the past. We’ve done a lot to redress those injustices and give everyone equal rights. Canada is today one of the countries where people have the most freedom to express their identity.

3/ But why should we promote ever more diversity? If anything and everything is Canadian, does being Canadian mean something? Shouldn’t we emphasize our cultural traditions, what we have built and have in common, what makes us different from other cultures and societies?

4/ Having people live among us who reject basic Western values such as freedom, equality, tolerance and openness doesn’t make us strong. People who refuse to integrate into our society and want to live apart in their ghetto don’t make our society strong.

5/ Trudeau’s extreme multiculturalism and cult of diversity will divide us into little tribes that have less and less in common, apart from their dependence on government in Ottawa. These tribes become political clienteles to be bought with taxpayers $ and special privileges.

6/ Cultural balkanisation brings distrust, social conflict, and potentially violence, as we are seeing everywhere. It’s time we reverse this trend before the situation gets worse. More diversity will not be our strength, it will destroy what has made us such a great country.

‘Diversity’ could be our strength if Trudeau knew the definition. Segregation seems to be what Trudeau is pushing !

He is not pushing segregation! Prove your point! So tired of people pulling statements out of thin air. Let's have a real discussion. What is Maxime's plan to resolve his complaint that immigrants are not assimilating into Canadian society enough!

Today's tweets on 'multiculturalism' by accurately reflect the thoughts of most Canadians, specially those of us who escaped cultures of oppression based on racial & religious superiority that validated gender apartheid, homophobia & absence of individual liberty.

Where are the voices of Canadians who recently immigrated legally, waited their turns, followed the process? Are they in support of or against illegal border crossers? The media needs to give them a voice. This is a Canadian concern regardless of skin colour or country of origin

The trouble with this stuff is that is was said one hundred and fifty years ago about the arrival of the Irish, and every generation since then. Jews, Italians, Chinese, Sikhs, the list is endless - none of them were welcomed, all were accused of not “fitting in”

Except the different groups you mention all had the drive to integrate with Canadian society and basically shared the same values in the country's they came from.
