Kellie Leitch wants all immigrants screened for "Canadian values"

The Sunday Edition for November 20, 2016, with guest-host Laura Lynch: Ms. Leitch, a candidate for the leadership of the Conservative party, says immigrants to Canada should be questioned to see if they hold "Canadian values". The paediatric surgeon, former university professor and federal cabinet minister also says the "guys and gals on the street" like the strong message Donald Trump sent to the elites. In a world bent on simplicity and the great un-cluttering, Emelia Symington Fedy makes the case for holding on tight to the objects that shaped you, even if they create a great big fat mess. Shadowy agents, questionable English, a distorted curriculum. International students are bringing big bucks to cash-strapped Canadian universities -- which is certainly one reason why the federal government wants to double foreign enrolment by 2022. But our growing dependence comes with a cost -- to students, to professors and to the academic enterprise. Ira Basen's documentary is called "Foreign Exchange". Music this week by: Thomas "Fats" Waller, Sarah Vaughan, Leonard Cohen, Yaron Herman, guitarist Eduardo Fernandez, the folk group " Ten Strings and a Goat Skin", Doug Cox and BettySoo, and Colin Linden.
