“Bruce Allen is a legendary and somewhat famous music-biz manager who has guided the likes of Bryan Adams and Michael Buble to fame and fortune. But the gregarious Allen is perhaps more famous in the Vancouver area for his daily on-air editorial, Reality Check, on CKNW. His generally conservative, main-street, working-man views are surprising considering the milieu in which he works, and they’re certainly a breath of fresh air on a station that has become quite milquetoast in recent years.
Anyway (…) Allen is in quite a bit of hot water these days over an editorial from earlier this month in which he essentially said that if immigrants to Canada don’t like it here they can pack their bags and go back home.
“There’s now a move afoot to remove Allen from an Olympics committee, on the grounds that his views don’t reflect Canadian values…”
So my question is:
What made the “South Asian” community think he was talking specifically about them?
