Canadians Are Moderate for a Reason

Haroon Siddiqui praises Canada’s lack of ‘extremism’ on immigrants. It’s true that we don’t see the kind of right-wing parties and rhetoric in Canada that is seen in Europe and the US. This has something to do with culture and history (and our lack of free-speech protections), but more, I think, to do with the composition of our immigrant population. Replace all the East Asians in Canada with Muslims or blacks, and you’d start seeing something different.

  1. Indeed. Correspondingly, we also don’t have as much identity politics (outside of big cities like Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver) as our American friends do.

    We are greatly blessed. 🙂
