Jason Kenny our minister integration and misguided values

If our initial two solitudes, taught us anything, it was that our acceptance of our diversity of culture, ethnicity, customs and language is what has made us Canadian. Something our minister of immigration and multiculturalism has somehow forgotten or possibly never knew.

Jason Kenny is continuing to push his insulting rhetoric about the purification of our immigration process with the recommendation that immigrants not only be able to fluently communicate in English or French, but that our existing ethic communities need to further embrace Canadian values.

Kenny believes that Canadians should not be naive about the very real dangers of radicalization, of extremism. He is concerned some communities are not actively integrating with mainstream society. He is pushing an integration agenda.

Kenny then adds that there are people who come to Canada or are born in Canada that have very illiberal views, who believe that their religious dogma or their ethnic grievance justifies violence.

Unfortunately for most us, regardless of our ethnic heritage, the same could somewhat be said for our existing government, whose own ideological dogma threatens to destroy the truly Canadian values that not only founded our country but made us uniquely in the world, Canadian.

Boys are not allowed to hit girls

Don't do much anymore except make breakfast for one of my grandkids, a seven year old boy, walking him to school, picking him up and then having philosophical conversations about his day. Living in the basement of my daughter's house, I really try, to not interfere with their parenting, but what the hell, right now he spends as much time with me during the week, than he does with them.

The other day my daughter who came home early and ended up eavesdropping on our conversation about when to fight and when to walk away. Apparently it was one of those days in the school yard.

"Look, it is really simple" I started, "there are only two rules about fighting.The first rule is, you don't start the fight, but if a boy hits you, hit him back, as hard and as fast as you can and don't stop until he runs away." He liked that part and demonstated how he would punch. "In other other words," I continued "you will only be in trouble if you started the …
