Andrew Coyne asks (regarding NDP leadership candidate Thomas Mulcair’s dual citizenship): is singular citizenship too much to ask of a potential PM?
We do expect a certain minimum commitment . . . from all of our citizens, foreign- or native-born: that they obey the laws, that they pay their taxes, and so on. And these in turn depend upon an expectation that we are, in some more fundamental sense, committed to each other: that we are pledged, not merely to live with each other, but to be bound by and to each other, and to that enterprise in which we are all engaged, the construction of a society based on justice.
