I already have, you're free to read or not read whatever you like.

This is a bold-faced lie, or you’re too dumb to know what the term evidence means.

You have absolutely not shown evidence that foreign born MPs are a risk to security. 

You’ve made proclamations…. And pointed to things that had nothing to do with any sitting MPs….

c'mon waldo, it's surely only coincidental this guy looks Chinese & has a Chinese name! LOL! Conservative Party's national council suspends member {Bert Chen} after bid to recall O'Toole as leader

it gets better! The suspension vote was a 10-7 split... with the vote of leader O'Toole one of those 10 voting to suspend the upstart... geezaz waldo, that's a close vote! LOL!

Is there any evidence that this would help national security?


Obviously if people are sympathetic to a foreign power hostile to Canada that would be a threat to national security. And who would be more likely to be sympathetic than people born and raised in that foreign nation? We're starting to get information that a lot of Chinese Canadians feel a deep sense of affection and pride in China, and get angry when Canada challenges or insults China. Indo-Canadians got angry at the Chretien government years ago when they put sanctions on India for developing a nuclear bomb with our unknowing help but there weren't enough of them to give him pause back then. The number of Chinese-Canadians is rising steadily as tens of thousands more arrive from China each year. China asserts that all ethnic Chinese everywhere should show loyalty to mother China, and all its media and its Canadian controlled media spout that line.

I can tell how good of a person you are by how you treat the people you disagree with.

Bernier left secret documents with his girlfriend who had ties to bikers. 

No one says security breeches never happen.

Show me evidence that foreign born MPs are more of a risk than those born in Canada.

It does seem too arbitrary doesn't it?  Someone who came to Canada as an infant and is completely integrated as a Canadian shouldn't have a right to run for office, but someone who strongly identifies with their ethnic roots could potentially run just because they were born in Canada.

I'm not denying it's problematic to have MP's show allegiance to other countries, I just think birthright isn't all that relevant in today's society.  It much more complex that it used to be.
