A whopping 84 per cent of respondents agreed with the statement, “New immigrants to Canada should be screened to ensure they share Canadian values.” Almost 50 per cent “strongly” agreed. That’s a higher register of strong feeling than the survey elicited in any other policy-related question.

...

But here’s the paradox: It turns out that the “Canadian values” revealed in our poll are dramatically at odds with the values espoused by the loudest proponents of an immigrant “values” test. In other words, Canada’s rednecks should be careful what they wish for.
Almost all of the 17 primary values questions put to poll respondents elicited enthusiasm in varying degrees for “progressive” values and ambivalence about almost everything else. If it’s “Canadian values” you want embraced by the roughly 300,000 people who emigrate to Canada every year, you’ll have to screen out almost everybody except for liberals.

If it's written by politicians or bureaucrats, I would never be able to pass a Canadian values test without much memorization, and I'm sure memorizing the questions and answers to such a test would give me migraines.

As for trying to understand the rationale behind the questions and answers, that would drive me bat crazy, so I'd stick to memorization without really trying to understand just to save some of my sanity.

Relax...they will be multiple choice questions

Just answer "C", the odds are you will get a 60% - 70% at least.

The most important Canadian value is not having to write moronic Canadian values tests.

Quebecers would boycott them anyway, even if their shared values are essentially the same.
