Pollster Michael Adams of Environics Research in Toronto says Canada has taken in so many immigrants in the past two decades that the face of politics is changing beyond recognition to previous generations.
"Forty per cent of this country is foreign born," he points out, "and because we accepted only skilled immigrants, we get people who are capable, intelligent, already accomplished.
"And it’s no surprise that they run for office to try to make things better for their community and others."
Comment: Let alone Politics. When Indian curry is considered its number one national dish like in the UK – the Country is deemed to have arrived and thrived. Otherwise – it has only survived awaiting to be revived in its new identity. This process may take a score of years. Indian Candians may not like this but they cannot help but begrudgingly agree with it.
If they really "mean to run for office to try to make things better for their community and others." – they had better not forget the plight of the Canadian Indians in the truest sense of equality and natural and social justice.
In the truest Hindu belief – Maanav Seva – or service to mankind (especilaly the disadvantaged and under privileged) without expectation of reward is one of the fastest and surest three routes to attaining ‘God’ (whatever one’s concept of god). That is the most altruistic selfless act one can undertake in striving for and delivering equality in treatment and social justice to those most deprived. That is the best way to redeem oneself and pay the debt back to one’s society and community.
