CHP view is nonsense
Thank you for publishing Mike Schouten’s ridiculous drivel about the slippery slope Canada is apparently falling down with regard to radical Islam (“Party calls for tighter immigration controls,” The Leader, Feb. 18).
The fact that one of their candidates spouts this kind of sanctimonious nonsense publicly serves as an excellent example of why nobody except for the fringe far-right cares about – or votes for – the Christian Heritage Party.
If anything, their policies – particularly involving abortion, gun control, gays, and capital punishment – conflict more with Canadian values than any policy currently endorsed by any mainstream Muslim organization in Canada. Mr. Schouten needs to take a look in the mirror.
