Fear mongering was main election issue

Canada is a mosaic – not a melting pot. We celebrate our cultural differences

Editor, The Times:

The absolute most important aspect of this election was the fear mongering perpetrated by Stephen Harper.

I resent that a politician can be allowed to spread hate against a minority. This man and his “old stock” supporters are on the same wrong side of Canadian history as: residential schools, Japanese internment camps, Komagata Maru, M.S. St. Louis and the turbans in the RCMP – just to name a few.

This is all done under the weak guise of protecting the Canadian society! Canada is a mosaic – not a melting pot. We celebrate our cultural differences. To censure and vilify an individual for their religion or culture is intolerable.
