It’s not just that Jason Kenney, the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration pulled a section of the study guide for immigrants that details Canada’s gay rights legislation. He did that, according to the Globe article over the objections of senior staff memebers. That’s what we expect from him.
It’s not just that now people who immigrate from countries where homosexuality is a crime, will have no idea that they are coming, or could come to a country where “There’s no place for the state in the bedrooms of the nation.”.
It’s far worse than that, in my opinion. It points to a continuing, under the radar, fundamentalist religious agenda in this government.
It’s far wore than that. Jason Kenney has tried to change who we are by ministerial decree, without regard for the wishes of Parliament, the decisions of the Supreme Court, or the decent behaviour of most Canadians.
Through the actions of this minister and by his own prorogation of Parliament, Stephen Harper is showing Canadians his contempt for our institutions, for all he wrapped himself in the flag in Vancouver.
