London's Financial Times looks at the federal Conservatives' wooing of ethnic voters.
What the story misses: (1) Mike Harris very successfully wooed the same voters in suburban Toronto, which is very heavily first and second generation vizmin. (2) Most new Canadians do not come from India and Pakistan. The Brit writer projected his country's demographics onto ours. Migrants from China and south Asia are amenable to the Tory message: they work hard, understand how governments can screw up their lives, and feel no need at all to coddle Quebec.
