CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – Conservative leadership candidate Kellie Leitch believes immigration is a serious issue in Canada.
That’s why she’s still promoting her anti-Canadian values screening program, a part of her campaign which has drawn lots of media attention these past few months.
Leitch, one of 14 people running for the leadership of the Conservative Party of Canada, dropped by The Guardian office to talk politics on Wednesday.
“I put forward a common sense policy in which I think each immigrant, visitor and refugee into Canada should have a face-to-face interview,’’ Leitch told the newspaper. “Right now, only about one in 10 immigrants into Canada actually meet a Canadian-trained immigration officer face to face.’’
