The Hyphenated Canadian's Concerns

The Canadian restrictionist blogger The Hyphenated-Canadian, author of Dispatches from the Hogtown Front, has started posting again, after a lull caused by celebrating two Christmases. It's a long story...
As much as one wishes all success for Stephen Harper and the Conservative Party of Canada in Tuesday's election, so that great country can at last start to purge itself of the poison the Liberal Party has spread throughout its system, H-C has some very, very harsh words for Harper on the CPC's apparent lack of a firm immigration policy.
As H-C has said, nothing, absolutely nothing, turns conservative voters off more quickly than pandering to special interests - and in particular, ethnic pandering to terrorists.

I've read the Conservative platform on this, and although I think their immigration targets are too high, they are are lower than either of the other parties.
Small steps, people. Small steps.
Their plan for accreditation, and targeting more skilled workers and fewer family reunifications - and their pledge to clear the backlog, are all steps in the right direction.
As for the Tamil Tigers, the Conservative Party has condemned them and recommended they be put on the watchlist. I wasn't pleased when they went silent on this issue after the Deputy Leader made a statement a week or two ago, but I understand the motivation.
They didn't retract the statement, they merely tempered it.
