He gets it... They’re immigrants to Canada. So why are they supporting far-right parties that want to reduce immigration? Kulbir Singh Chawla really doesn’t like when he’s connected with a customer service representative with a foreign accent. This, despite having a accent himself. “Here in Canada, I would say don’t even employ Kulbir,” Chawla said of customer service jobs. “Because I still don’t have that Canadian way of (speaking) fully.” The most recent federal election saw a small but distinct cadre of people of colour and immigrants such as Chawla supporting and in some cases even running for far-right populist parties such as the People’s Party of Canada, the National Citizens Alliance and the Canadian Nationalist Party. All of these parties wanted to reduce immigration and scrap Canada’s official multiculturalism policy. Despite being an immigrant himself, Chawla says he supports these policies.
