The sociologist whose book was cited by Conservative leadership candidate Kellie Leitch as giving evidence of a dysfunctional immigration system says he wants nothing to do with her campaign.
"Obviously I'm glad she read the book," Satzewich told BuzzFeed Canada. "Having said that, I very strongly disagree with her idea."
Leitch didn't just cite Satzewich's book on stage at the leadership debate. Her campaign website also prominently features the book cover on the front page, which he says surprised him.
