This is just more of your drivel. How do you define "culture" in the
word "Multiculturalism"? Spoken language? People can speak any language
they want, I don't care. Religious beliefs? I don't care about that
either. It's none of my business. Canada has all the protections any
citizen needs to enjoy all the freedom our country has to offer.
Multiculturalism adds nothing.
What about customs? Lets say hypothetically that it is a custom in a
certain "culture" for a husband to use corporal punishment against a
wife if he believes she has been disrespectful to him. I don't respect
that custom, it goes against Canadian laws and values. Am I violating
"Multiculturalism"? Or what if *hypothetically* in another culture it is
a mainstream belief that homosexuals belong in prison. If I oppose that
belief am I violating "Multiculturalism"? What does "Multiculturalism"
require of me that Canadian laws and values don't already demand?
