Meaning what? You said that it doesn't apply to private citizens, so why
should I care?

Running a society? I'm not running a society, although you seem to be
trying. And where did you get this "highest IQ ever recorded" baloney?

There doesn't need to be an ism word making it into a *policy*, it's
just a reality.

Promote what? When you have multiple cultures within a nation, the main
thing the government should be concerned about is that they get along
peacefully. Of course the members of that culture must be treated
equally under the law, that goes without saying.

the law. The LAST thing they have to do is jump through hoops in a futile attempt to gain the
approval of a bigot named "Dutch" on the internet. Who the fuck do you think you are? Besides, you
have been asked several times what Muslims must specifically do to appease you, and you can't even
name anything. I think we all know it would be an impossible moving target.
Not having women wear those hideous black face masks would be a start.
Not blowing a 6AM prayer horn might be another.
So you want to promote different cultures maintaining their own cultural
customs even when they clash with Canadian norms. Why? Are you afraid
they might be offended? Can you imagine ANY cultural practice that you
would ever want to discourage immigrants from continuing? What about
public outdoor defecation? Is there ANYTHING you would draw the line at?
