Stephen Harper says Canada will not airlift refugees without proper security screening

“We cannot open the floodgates and airlift tens of thousands of refugees out of a terrorist war zone without proper process. That is too great a risk for Canada,” Harper said on Tuesday during a question-and-answer session on Facebook.

Frankly we should not be accepting Muslim refugees, not when there are persecuted Christians.

  • Ron MacDonald

    I know a couple of Middle Eastern Christians, they’re really nice, honest individuals, I don’t have a problem accepting Christian refugees.

    • Micky C.

      Me neither.

    • Maurixio Garciasanchez

      That makes sense .

    • Ho Hum

      I agree. I don’t have a problem with Christian Arabs. Robert Spencer is a Christian Arab. Most of the Christian Arabs (and Christian Persians) who have come to Canada are successful business people or professionals. They share our values. Their young women wear western clothes and if they have a nice figure are not shy about flaunting their curves a bikini. You won’t find many of them living in public housing.

  • Yusuf_Al_Kafir

    And any sane-minded, impartial Canadian would agree with Harper on this.

    The folks in the media and the clowns on social media will just have to suck it up.

    This comment from ‘Kevin in Vancouver’ says it best…..

    QUOTE – Doesn’t anyone remember the Cuban refugee flood. Castro emptied his prisons and sent them to the states on boats. Miami has never been the same since.

    Talk about an excellent way to get ISIS terrorist into the country. Oh right they don’t use women and children do they !

    Thank you Prime Minister. – END QUOTE

      Florida still votes Republican since Carter let Castro empty his jails on shore

      • Millie_Woods

        Are either one of those two picks dead yet? I keep hearing rumors.

    • Blind Druid

      I’m clapping my hands and howling with triumph reading the comments on this CBC article. The common sense (and until now, silent) majority have trampled the bleeding hearts and lib progressives out of existence. I will vote for anybody who wants to prevent Canada from becoming like Eurasia.

  • mauser 98

    Stevie better not cave to Pony, Strapon and dual citizen Mulcair
    or will change my vote

    “Terrorists Gotta Live Someplace”

    • V10_Rob

      I expect the Tories are looking for a compromise position, a number large enough to show they’re Doing Something without swamping us with fraudsters and terrorists.

      Anything less than ‘All of them’ will be deemed insufficient by the NDP and Liberals (and even if we did take all of them, no dollar value of welfare/housing/etc. would ever be enough for us to reach a point where Canada isn’t ‘neglecting’ them). That fight was lost before it began.

      Still time enough in the campaign for people to get bored with this story and move on to the latest outrage. Ideally, enough horror stories (and photos and videos) will seep past the media blockade to disgust the Canadian public.

      The NDP and Liberals own this now, just hope the consequences start showing up before the only reaction left is voter remorse.

      • mauser 98

        if it goes south media will cover for NDP & Liberals.
        will blame Mike Harris

  • Blind Druid

    CBC article, Harper:– ‘We are willing to take more people, but we must be sure we are helping the most vulnerable’ and that would of course be the Christians, the Jews have already fled.

  • Gary

    We were played for suckers by the Somali’s since some of their mosques are now pumping out terrorists , then we had the Vietnamese where hundred of pro-communists from the South joined in the flood of refugees getting out and many are here in Canada.

    The Toronto 18 were born here as well as Omar Khadr , the To 18 wanted to slaughter 1000’s with truck bombs.
    The terrorism by muslims will only get worse as the population % goes up.

  • moraywatson

    Infidel refugees, if necessary. No muslim refugees, period. And if a refugee who is admitted on the pretense they are not muslim, subsequently professes to be muslim, they are automatically deported.

  • Maurixio Garciasanchez

    Harper can not even screen his own candidates, that’s the main reason 2 of had to resign thanks to the media they did that job .

    • Cat-astrophe

      Yea, but they are gone now. Not soon enough?

      • Maurixio Garciasanchez

        It should be time to screen the entire team one by one with criminal records , if they found one or 10 or 20 with criminal records it’s time to remove them .

        • Cat-astrophe

          I agree, those with checkered pasts ought to be remove way before they are nominated to represent the (any) party.
          There is no excuse for not doing so.

          • Maurixio Garciasanchez

            Thanks for understanding my point of view.

    • Canadian

      They`re only screening conservatives.

      • Maurixio Garciasanchez

        Sure they forgot to screen those 2 guys , they were declared the best candidates to represent the Cons.

        • Canadian

          They didn`t screen the Libs and the Commies.

          • Maurixio Garciasanchez

            All political parties should do that .

          • Canadian

            The media will only screen the conservatives.

          • Maurixio Garciasanchez

            Because the are in power they have special status at the same time they want people to reelecte it them so the media is doing what is supposed to do .

  • Rosenmops

    If Trudope or the Dippers get in they will bring the whole ISIS army to Canada as “refugees”. I see the Conservatives are down in the polls. God help us all.

  • Ho Hum

    I am pleased that Harper is not caving into the left wing pressure to bring in more Syrians. Also I was happy that he mentioned again that he will be focusing on those refugees who are at greatest risk – i.e. religious and ethnic minorities. This means no Arab or African Muslims!

    I think it would be really wise for the conservatives to emphasize this big difference between their proposal and the proposals of the NDP and Liberals. I am sure that most voters would favor Harpers proposal over the NDP and Liberals.

    They should run an ad campaign in which – in a voice-over – they say “our refugee plan will focus solely at those most at risk – religious and ethnic minorities while showing pictures of cute little Christian kids and Kuridish kids with blond hair and blue eye’s – then in another voice-over “the NDP and Liberals want to let anyone and everyone come to Canada” accompanied by pictures of men with long beards in white robes – women in niqab’s and boatloads of African muslims as black a coal.

    This would be a very effective ad campaign and would wake up a lot of voters. Of course the conservatives would be accused of being “rascist” and “islamaphobic” for making a “Willie Horton” type ad but they shouldn’t worry about those labels. As Donald Trump has proven political correctness is all but dead.

      If people want to see the future of Canada look at whats going on in Ottawa with the airport taxis.

  • If Muslim immigrants want in, they can convert. They should be treated as they treated their Christian neighbours in Mosul.
