SURPRISE: Internal Government Report Contradicts Trudeau’s ‘Diversity’ Rhetoric, Says Focus Needs To Be On ‘Social Cohesion’ & ‘Shared Values’


In an revelation that is pretty awkward for the Liberal elites and the political class, it turns out that an internal government report says there needs to be a focus on unity and an effort to “bring the focus back to the majority,” instead of emphasizing ‘diversity values’ in government communications.

The report was ostensibly about ‘countering populism’ in Canada, yet it ironically backs up many of the things Canadian populists have been saying, and contradicts political correctness.

As reported by the CP, “The group was told to encourage more public conversations and debate focused on “us” rather than “us-versus-them” narratives to foster “social cohesion.” A briefing note prepared for the senior civil servants warned that if only “marginalized populations are considered,” the result would be that “others feel as if they do no matter.”

“Social cohesion must become a new lens of policy-making. In order to achieve this, the government needs to build connections across difference, foster greater empathy and bring the focus back to the majority (i.e. the middle groups),” officials wrote in the documents.”

The report clearly points out that identity politics must be avoided:

“When it comes to future communications, deputy ministers stressed the need to “focus on shared values rather than diversity values when framing the social cohesion narrative,” the meeting summary says.”

What’s so interesting about this is that, when Maxime Bernier said something similar, he was condemned by much of the political class.

“Government officials advised to focus on “social cohesion” and “shared values” rather than diversity to avoid polarization.


Will half the journalists and talking heads in the country now freak out over this story?”

Yet, here we see an internal report from a Liberal government that – behind the scenes at least – realizes that focusing on difference is divisive, and that a focus on what unites us as Canadians is the way to keep Canada strong and unified.

The fact is that humans love to break ourselves up into different tribes. If a country doesn’t have a strong sense of unity and nationalism that brings people of all backgrounds together as Citizens with common values, then people will simply divide into smaller tribes, and the country will get put at further and further risk. And when the government tries to pretend that we don’t need a national identity, or tries to pretend that we are a ‘post-national state,’ then the division only gets worse.

Of course, Justin Trudeau and the Liberals are obsessed with identity politics, and are thus unlikely to follow this advice. But for everyone in our country with common sense, we need to keep pushing for our unity and common values, and stand up for a strong and inclusive Canadian nationalism.

The government has been pushing tribalisam with the word called multiculturalisam.Anybody can see this, if that is no division then what is it?

Clive Edwards

In Thomas R. Shannon’s textbook, “An Introduction to the World-System Perspective” (Westview Press, a division of Harper Collins) tribalism is the implied and negative alternative to the inevitable vector towards globalism based on Western (i.e., Anglo-American) values. He points out that the original purpose of the State was to consolidate power and wealth in the hands of the elite and that no system has or can be devised that escapes that trap. Tribalism or globalism? Can the wealthy and powerful be described as a tribe? They certainly set their own to positions of power, or select promising newcomers who are… Read more »

“True and pure diversity in a multicultural society is to allow each parent to teach their children their religious belief, their values according to their culture and tradition, and to teach their sexual moral standard and behaviour without prejudice and without interference from any level of government. Isn’t that what the Charter of Rights and Freedoms is all about?”

William Jones

To my way of seeing the Liberal’s ‘view of Canada,’ it consists of ONLY Trudeaus’s language, whether or not there is any ‘sense’ whatever, or any logic in the comments — usually sans logic, a term I have yet to hear from this government.
