‘The Canadian multicultural model has failed’

Reacting to David Cameron’s Luton Munich speech, one prominent Canadian community leader said Cameron was “spot on” when he insisted British multiculturalism has failed, adding that Canada’s multi-culti experiment was no better off.

“The Canadian multicultural model has failed, as the British model has,” the leader said. “When first generation (Muslims) are more loyal to Canada than the second generation, then we have sufficient evidence to say that multiculturalism has failed.”

The leader went on to say that Canada’s Liberal and Conservative parties marginalize Muslims via “state-sponsored multiculturalism” that encourages the formation of insular ghettos, some of which preach illiberal, hate-filled anti-West rhetoric.

So who’s the leader? Tarek Fatah, founder of the Muslim Canadian Congress.
