Losing True North in the Toronto Sun

This promo by national columnist Anthony Furey appeared in the Sun on May 1, 2016:

When Justin Trudeau became Canada’s 23rd prime minister, he promised to govern differently – in an optimistic and transparent way.

Instead, as author and Sun columnist Candice Malcolm reports in her new book, Losing True North, Trudeau has chosen to pursue a cynical political agenda to manipulate Canada’s immigration system.

As authorities in Europe struggle to respond to terror attacks and waves of migration from conflict zones, Trudeau is haphazardly throwing Canada’s doors open to the world.

Why is Trudeau granting Canadian citizenship to a convicted terrorist? Why is he scrapping the language test for many citizenship applicants?

Malcolm puts forward compelling evidence that the prime minister is undermining Canadian values — and doing it for one simple reason: so his Liberal Party can win favour with special interest groups and add to its voting coalition in time for the next election.

With his radical changes to our immigration system, Trudeau is sacrificing Canada’s traditions and advantages. He is putting our economy, our national security and our very way of life at risk.

Trudeau is changing our country – and changing what it means to be Canadian.

Losing True North is a wake-up call to all Canadians. It is available at Amazon.ca

Q&A with Losing True North author Candice Malcolm:

Why write this book now?

“Justin Trudeau has wasted no time in implementing his radical, partisan immigration agenda. His policies are already hurting Canadians and putting our national security at risk. We shouldn’t let him get away with it.”

What’s your biggest concern with this issue?

“That Trudeau’s policies will put Canadians’ lives at risk. A secondary concern is that his schemes will drive public skepticism towards immigration. Trudeau may wake up in 4 years to a country that no longer welcomes newcomers with open arms.”

What do you hope readers take away from the book?

“These are dangerous times. I hope Canadians remember that it’s each of our responsibility to remain vigilant against threats to our freedom. Canadians should pay attention – these are issues that will change our country.”

Are you optimistic about the future?

“Yes. I may not have confidence in our prime minister, but I do have faith in the Canadian public. Canadians instinctively understand the important balance of freedom and security, and have a tremendous sense of justice and fairness. We will get through these challenging times, regardless of Trudeau’s disastrous agenda.”

FOUR MISTAKES

Four ways Trudeau is hurting Canada with his citizenship and immigration agenda:

1. Gambling Canada’s national security and public safety, making us more vulnerable to Islamic terrorist organizations and criminal networks.

2. Opening us up to more fraud and abuse by those who seek to take advantage of our generosity.

3. Undoing the economic benefits of immigration by loosening the rules and accepting too many elderly immigrants.

4. Undermining public trust in our system and driving more Canadians to reject more immigration.
