Chris Alexander Faces Tough Challenges After the Kurdi Fiasco

Why? Did he put children on a raft in the middle of the night without life jackets?

Oh no! That was Abdullah Kurdi.

Immigration Minister Chris Alexander faces a tough battle to hold his riding after the Syrian refugee controversy, while a Liberal and an NDP star are running almost neck and neck in downtown Toronto, new polling suggests.

Alexander still leads in the Ajax constituency east of the city, backed by 33 per cent of voters versus Liberal Mark Holland’s 31 per cent, says the Mainstreet/Postmedia survey released Wednesday.

But his advantage has narrowed significantly from the 2011 election, when he beat the Liberal incumbent by six percentage points. …

Alexander ended up on the hot seat recently when a Syrian refugee boy drowned while trying to cross the Mediterranean.

A Canadian relative suggested he had been asked to green light immigration of the boy and his family, but it is unclear what, if anything, he knew about the case. Still, his immediate response — especially a combative interview on CBC-TV — likely hurt him, says Quito Maggi, president of Mainstreet Research.

“Chris Alexander did himself a near-catastrophic negative in that interview,” he said. “That particular day and what it did for his overall image was substantial and will have long-lasting impacts.”

    So the left cries an ocean of tears over one little boys tragic death which had absolutely nothing to do with Canada yet has nothing to spare for the thousands of innocent babies aborted every year. How sick can you get?

    If you wish for it really really hard, it will come true!

    Some 5-year-olds believe that, and so do all the adults in the Media Party. If they slant all their stories and all their polls to reflect what they wish for (Harper gone) it will come true.

    Sad thing is they might be right if enough Canadians are gullible fools.

    The first casualty of leftist vote whoring is truth.
    As to the dynamics of this story – there is a lingering stench around it that the media party apparently is in no hurry to delve into.
