    Brampton “Racist” Flyers: Should European-Canadians be Replaced?

    by Ricardo Duchesne The Brampton Flyers of April Late in April 2014 a few dozen flyers were distributed in Brampton Ontario. The flyer, entitled “The Changing Face of Brampton,” showed an old black and white photograph of White Canadians in Brampton some decades ago. This picture was juxtaposed against a photo of a Sikh group. Beneath these photos the flyer stated: “From this…to this. Is this really what you want?” In June 2013, The Globe and Mail published an article, How Brampton demonstrates the new vision of Canada, celebrating the dramatic transformation of Brampton, Ontario, from a quiet bedroom town to a booming community more than half a million people.…

Below is the unpublished English version, posted in two parts.) Part I | Part II Le Harfang: In The Uniqueness of Western Civilization, you talk about history revisionism, a multiculturalist approach to history. Please, tell us more. Ricardo Duchesne: Multicultural revisionism is essentially an effort to rewrite the history of the world in such a way that Western Civilization comes to be seen as just one more civilization among many others. Multicultural revisionism dominates current history writing. It roots go back to the Marxist…

    Interview with Ricardo Duchesne: Part I: What is Multiculturalism?

    (Editor’s Note: The following interview was conducted in the Fall of 2013 with the magazine Le Harfang published in French by Fédération des Québécois de souche. Below is the unpublished English version, posted in two parts.) (Portuguese Translation) Part I | Part II Le Harfang: Because the definition of the word always depends on who is talking, could you define in your own terms multiculturalism? Ricardo Duchesne: Let’s take the world “multicultural” rather than “multiculturalism” first. “Multi” means many, and so “multicultural” means many cultures. From a strictly dictionary point of view, there is nothing wrong with the term “multicultural”; it may be correctly used to refer descriptively to the…

    Fake Environmentalists Refuse to Ask Basic Questions about Mass Immigration

    by Madeline Weld City of Brampton, Toronto. Immigration = more urban sprawl, traffic grid-lock, noise, pollution, higher property taxes and auto insurance rates… Canada, along with Australia, takes in more immigrants per capita than any other Western country. In 1990, Brian Mulroney’s Progressive Conservative government began to take in about 250,000 immigrants each year, regardless of economic conditions. This policy was continued by his successors, both Liberals and Conservatives. According to Statistics Canada, in 2011 Canada had a total of about 6,775,800 foreign-born individuals who arrived as immigrants. They represented 20.6% of the total population. Among the G8 countries, Canada had the highest proportion of foreign-born population (20.6%), well above…

    Salim Mansur and the Conservative (Anti-European) Critique of Multiculturalism

    by Ricardo Duchesne Canadian Immigration Minister Jason Kenney courting “ethnic” (= non-white) votes Salim Mansur, an associate professor at the University of Western Ontario in the department of political science, is a prominent public intellectual in Canada, a frequent commentator on radio and television, a regular writer for Toronto Sun, and occasional columnist for FrontPage Magazine, National Review Online and PajamasMedia. His book, Delectable Lie: A Liberal Repudiation of Multiculturalism (2011), synthesizes arguments he has made over the last decade about the threat Islamic fundamentalism poses for liberal democratic societies captivated by the notion that all cultures deserve equal respect. The thesis of this book is well articulated in his…

    The Origins of Multiculturalism in Canada: The Ukrainian Connection

    by Frank Hilliard A family of Ukrainian immigrants in Quebec City 1897 Multiculturalism arrived in Canada almost literally out of the blue. One moment we were improving our Bilingual and Bicultural character with a Royal Commission and the next moment all that was thrown out the window and a new concept adopted. I was alive during that period, but I must have been asleep, as were almost all of my fellow Canadians. I hardly noticed as the nature of the country was fundamentally changed. Looking back I see Expo67 in Montreal as the theatre that deluded us all. It was a great world exposition. Anyone who attended was impressed with…

    Neil Bissoondath’s Selling Illusions. The Cult of Multiculturalism in Canada: 20 Years Later

    by Ricardo Duchesne As the subtitle of Neil Bissoondath’s book says, multiculturalism is a “cult” in Canada, not a typical cult in which a small group of very devoted supporters worship something or someone, but a cult officially endorsed by the elites across the nation, seemingly accepted by the majority, inscribed in the legal system, the media, schools, textbooks, historical narratives, and endorsed by all the political parties. Published in 1994, this became one of the most controversial books in 1990s Canada; in the revised edition published in 2002, Bissoondath recounts the “roller-coaster ride” he experienced upon publication, the many reviews, promotion circuit across the country, rounds of media interviews…

    Virtue in a Jack-Boot: Anthony Browne on Political Correctness

    by Tim Murray Anthony Browne’s The Retreat of Reason: Political Correctness and the Corruption of Public Debate in Modern Britain is just one of a long litany of books written about the scourge of left-wing McCarthyism that has seized control of every important institution in the Anglophone world. Nevertheless the subject is of such critical importance that it deserves re-iteration and Browne’s polemic is argued concisely and persuasively. While his examples are primarily British, Canadians, Australians and Americans will quickly identify with the malaise he describes. Political correctness has been defined as a neo-puritanism that attempts to save souls through language, an Orwellian quest to eliminate thoughts by prohibiting certain…

    The Survival of the Liberal West Requires Ethnic Nationalism

    by Frank Salter Proclamation of Prussian king Wilhelm I as German Emperor at Versailles in 1871 Historically the bourgeois representative nation-states of Europe developed in the direction of becoming a majority ethnic group strategy, at least until the mid twentieth century. It did so because elites could more effectively mobilize military and economic collective goods the closer the state resembled a tribal strategy. Global laissez-faire capitalism was perhaps more effective at maximizing the growth of the international economy as a whole; at least that is what formal econometric models predict. But nationalism was the most efficient means for harvesting the public altruism of a population, whether for the purpose of…
