Re: "Kenney: Ethnic media monitoring a valuable window," Nov. 17.
I absolutely agree with Immigration Minister Jason Kenney about monitoring ethnic media and spending funds to keep an eye on the social issues broadcast through those media.
Immigrants bring a lot of value and qualities to the Canadian life, but there are elements that misuse the newly found freedom in Canada and manipulate the laws to their advantage.
Ethnic radio and television stations bring these issues forward and broadcast them to make the members of ethnic communities aware of them. If the immigration minister does not monitor these issues, they will continue to escalate and will implicate not only the Canadian citizens but other foreign nationals as well.
I applaud Kenney for cracking down on the marriage-fraud issue and bringing in appropriate legislation to deal with it.
Without monitoring the ethnic media, his office would have never known about this disgraceful issue.
