Finally, we have a political leader and a federal party in Canada -- Maxime Bernier and the People's Party of Canada (PPC) -- with the fortitude and the wisdom to announce that a PPC led government will repeal Official Multiculturalism that has been the source of so much divisiveness in the body politics of our country in recent years. Political correctness imposed by the political, academic and media elites made it an offence to speak out against the folly of multiculturalism as a state directed policy, but not anymore if we decide to do what PPC has now indicated will be its policy on the subject.
Please read the announcement of the PPC policy on Canadian Identity: Ending Official Multiculturalism. It is not only common sense that Canada needs to emphasize a common core values and national identity for all its people from coast to coast to coast, it is also consistent with the history of our people diverse in origin and ethnicity striving together in unison -- despite differences that have at times brought stress and tragedy, such as the Louis Riel affair or the push for Quebec separatism -- to build upon their shared love for Canada a uniquely gifted country unlike any other, as an exemplar of a federation and a constitutional democracy united under the Crown.
On July 24, Maxime Bernier unveiled our party’s platform on immigration, multiculturalism, and Canadian identity.

We will reduce immigration levels, from 350,000 each year under the Liberals, to between 100,000 and 150,000.
