the prime minister seemed to make a deliberate attempt to soften the Conservative image, noting his party appointed the first female cabinet member and first aboriginal senator, along with electing the first MPs from a long list of ethnic groups.
"As a government, we inherited a country divided - east versus west, French versus English, aboriginal versus non-aboriginal . . . newcomers versus native born," he said. "That's what you get from decades of divide-and-conquer politics."
Oh yes Mr. PM. Yes. Your party is the poster party for minorities and their rights. Remember this? And this? How 'bout this?
