...does that mean, if principles are to be applied equally, that Canada can choose to accept only non-Muslim citizens?
Isn't it the same thing only on different scales?
Are we to see this as yet another example of Muslims rejecting the principles of living in a multicultural society while hypocritically reaping the benefits of living in one? If they don't want to live with non-Muslims then why are they in Canada in the first place? Is Muslim immigration really about immigration or is it Islamic colonialism and invasion through immigration? And are demands for accommodation acts of conquest? If so then they are not here to live with us. They are here to eventually rule over us and turn Canada into an Islamic state. If that is true, even in the slightest, then we need to rethink Muslim immigration and the place Islam has within Canadian society.
In all honesty I happen to side with the landlords. It is their property and if they so desire want to rent to Muslim tenants only then so be it.
But this should be applied to the nation as well expressed through the immigration system. We only accept immigrants from all over the world, including Muslims, on principle but in reality there is nothing compelling us to do so. If Canadians want to keep the country white majority and preserve its European heritage then let our immigration system reflect that desire. Being Canadian is more than just the acceptance of a bunch of values that aren't even unique to the country anyway.
Seriously, what people whole heartedly embraces a future in which they will be rendered a minority through the steady importation of disparate and unassimilating peoples who at times find themselves in conflict with the host culture? I'm pretty sure all native Tibetans just love the Han Chinese colonization of their country and welcome each Han Chinese immigrant with open arms. Aren't they enriching them with their diversity after all?
Muslims can't have it both ways. They can't establish colonies and enforce "no go zones" - quasi mini Islamic states in western cities exclusive to Muslims - yet support indiscriminate, liberal immigration systems that let them waltz into western nations and set up their exclusive Muslims colonies in the first place. I think the populace has made it clear that they are uncomfortable with Muslim immigration and the ever growing presence of Islam within Canadian territory. So, if Muslims feel they have the right to deny non-Muslims the opportunity to live on Muslim owned properties in Canada then I guess the citizens of Canada have the right to deny Muslims the opportunity to enter and settle in the country.
Fair's fair, is it not?
As for Canada's Human Rights Commission let's stop kidding ourselves once and for all. They are not about the universal protection of human rights but a weapon of mass destruction aimed at the host European, Christian heritage culture of Canada chiefly conservative, white, working class males.
