AUDIO – DESCRIPTION:
These two recordings were found, back to back, on a cassette tape, sandwiched between a recording dated August 13, 1986, and another dated September 8, 1986. Only the two excerpts were recorded, so we cannot know the specific topic being discussed, but it appears the question under discussion was whether Canada should be open to immigration. Freedom Party member Gord Mood and Freedom Party president Robert Metz each given an emphatic “yes”, and point out that a lot of the racism and anti-immigration sentiment is actually caused by bad government policy in respect of social programs.
