Canadian PM FAIL
Dear Mr Harper,
In general people do not care for the government to be tracking their religious affiliation. In particular however, there are few groups who care less for this sort of tracking than Jews. Seriously, you’re not going to get votes by sending Rosh Hashanah cards to your Jewish constituents. It freaks us out, really.
I was a little alarmed at the idea that the government might have some list of Canadian Jews, whether or not they’re using that for benevolent or malevolent or cynical reasons,” Mr. Terkel said. “It doesn’t seem my religion should be the business of any federal government.
With No Love,
P.S. It would be ever so slightly more convincing if you didn’t also schedule the upcoming election on a Jewish holiday. Hope that helps.
