I like Multiculturalism, but it has to be done right. I like different styles of food, art, poetry, music, dance. The awful problem is cultural relativism - that values are culturally determined.

I agree completely. Many immigrants here in Canada came here to escape these oppressive aspects of the countries they left behind. When we assume that the worst aspects of these cultures are a true reflection of the community, we do a great disservice to everyone.

Would we look at Stalinists and assume that "That's just what Russians believe. Who are we to question their culture?"
