Canada Looking To Ban Polygamist Immigrants

Canada is thinking about changing some requirements for immigrants: no polygamists or people who fancy forced or child marriages or honor killings or other "barbaric cultural practices" need apply. Of course we know who they're referring to, and good on them. But it beggars the question, is polygamy legal in Canada? If not, why were they allowed to move to Canada to begin with.

According to Canada's Immigration Minister Chris Alexander,

We are strengthening our laws to protect Canadians and newcomers to Canada from barbaric cultural practices,” Chris Alexander said in a statement, Agence France-Presse reported.
“We are sending a strong message to those in Canada and those who wish to come to Canada that we will not tolerate cultural traditions in Canada that deprive individuals of their human rights.”
You will have to wait until you are 16-years-old to get married (though that is way too young) and forget trying to blame it on "honor" if you kill your wife or children.  This has happened quite often in Canada in recent years, which is one reason they are planning on creating these restrictions.

Now, how about enacting similar immigration laws here in the United States? Oh right, we have the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and a bunch of liberals who will cry "racism" or "Islamophobia."

Good luck Canada.
