Mississauga, September 25, 2014. “Diversity is a code word for discrimination against people of European origin,” Mississauga mayoralty candidate Paul Fromm said today.
He was reacting to a Globe and Mail report (September 12) that rival candidate Bonnie Crombie had “proposed a diversity and inclusion committee to ensure staff and council ‘reflect the diversity of the city.’” Her proposal was made at a forum sponsored by the Social Justice Collaborative, Thursday evening.
“If reported correctly,” Mr. Fromm said, “Miss Crombie’s proposal is illegal, discriminatory and absurd. Voters determine the makeup of City Council.”
As for city staff, he added, “we should hire strictly on the basis of skills and merit. There has been far too much ‘employment equity,’ which means discrimination against European, traditional Canadians, especially White males,” said Mr. Fromm, who is in demand as a speaker in Canada, the U.S. and Britain for his contrarian views on immigration.
Residents of Ontario who wish to help the Elect Paul Fromm campaign should send donations by cheque to P.O. Box 332, Rexdale, Ontario, M9W 5L3 and make the cheques payable to “Elect Paul Fromm Mayor”. All donations will be receipted.
