For whatever it is worth, the Liberals point out that they’ve differentiated between multiculturalism and ethnic outreach (Rob Oliphant is assigned that job) and immigration (Justin Trudeau is the critic). Mr. Trudeau has penned a letter to the commissioner of elections to request an investigation of Mr. Kenney’s misdirected fundraising letter.
