Trudeau and Mulcair refuse to acknowledge ‘Marry Out, Get Out’
Liberal leader Justin Trudeau and New Democratic Party leader Thomas Mulcair are practicing electoral pandering at its worst.
Two days ago both Trudeau and Mulcair refused to condemn the Mohawk community of Kahnawake, Quebec’s ‘Marry Out, Get Out’ law.
The law means exactly that — marry a non-Mohawk, get off the reserve.
This is amazingly backwards for Canada.
Section 15 of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms states that ‘Every individual is equal before and under the law and has the right to the equal protection and equal benefit of the law without discrimination and, in particular, without discrimination based on race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, sex or mental or physical disability.’
But not in Kahnawake.
A mere two weeks ago, did Trudeau and Mulcair not celebrate the United States’ legalization of same-sex marriage?
Trudeau and Mulcair celebrated same-sex marriage, love and equality, then glossed over an act of racial discrimination in their own country all in the pursuit of votes.
Canadian adults of absolutely any race should be able to marry whomever they see fit and live wherever they see fit — both guaranteed by our Constitution — whether or not the leaders of our opposition parties are willing to defend it.
