morddwyd, sorry to be so negative but I totally agree with your assertion/mood on this matter. furthermore many 'new wave' politicians [wet behind the ears] that are shoe-horned into the glare of publicity, should keep their traps shut, and get real, instead of feining a false and inappropriate 'Im a do-gooder' facade.
**I'm All For Multiculturalism but ..."
That's like saying 'I'm no racist but..' or 'I have nothing against homosexuals but...' or 'I believe in sex equality but...**
Surely, you are all for Multiculturalism or you aren't. There's nothing to fear from it, is there?
How dare you compare me to the racists, bigots and sexists who are present in most forums because I express mild concern about having what are essentially foreign languages spoken officially in the legislature.
