Canada discovers its first Muslim refugee to become a cabinet member faked her background

When Maryam Monsef was installed as Canada’s minister of democratic institutions last November, she was the poster child for refugee advocates.

    She will be Prime Minister one day.

      At the rate things are going you are right.

        I’d like to throw ‘probably’ in there. Give us a bit of a break, OK.

      God forbid.

    It’s not like Iran hasn’t used undercover agents before.

    If we had rule of law she would be on a plane back to iran, stripped of her Canadian citizenship along with her mother. Those responsible for her “background check” would loose their jobs and pendions and Trudeau would be stepping down in disgrace for his appointing a foreign agent to a cabinet post.

    More focus should be put on the parents because it was them who brought her to Canada by lying on their refugee application.

    Successfully challenging the citizenship of someone who was 11 by saying they lied isn’t really going to stand up well in court.

    Boot the parents out and maybe she’ll follow, she was planning on leaving the country before anyways.

  • Via commenter Cathy Bows at the original Globe article: Monsef’s Iranian roots not news to her own riding

    And this:

    Gabby in QC 7 days ago
    “On her birth in the mid-1980s:
    Question: “So you were born in Afghanistan, correct?”
    Ms. Monsef: “I believe I was.”
    (CTV Question Period with The Globe and Mail’s Robert Fife, 2016)”

    Anyone being asked to confirm where (s)he was born would simply respond with “Yes, I was” not with “I believe …” That suggests doubt in her mind … or worse. She supposedly only learned about her actual birthplace “last Thursday” yet her doubtful answer to Robert Fife was probably given before he left QP (June 2016).

    Liberal version of transparency!?!

      She’s a muslima. Lying/taqqiya in islam is ingrained from birth. Deceit comes as naturally as breathing, and is part and parcel of the waging of jihad and the subjugation of unbelievers.

  • Alain

    As a side note I received about a week ago an e-mail inviting me to submit my views on changing the voting system. I spent the time to provide my response to the questions, sent it back and never have heard any more since. So I wonder if anyone else who follow BCF received the same and if they know anything more about it.

      I’m a known conservative, I doubt I’ll ever be asked anything by the Leftist morons who are both elected or running the autocracy.

  • Oh, and she’s been lying about her date of birth, too. Outstanding.

    ‘Jonathan Halevi, co-founder and editor of CIJnews and a senior researcher of the Middle East and radical Islam at the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs. On September 23, Halevi published two screencaptures from the Parliament of Canada website showing how Monsef’s birthplace and birth date had recently changed from November 1985 in Herat, Afghanistan to November 7, 1984 in Iran.

    But here is the problem. This suggests that up until very recently, Monsef believed – based on the story her mother apparently told her – that she was born in November 1985. And yet, in her “maiden speech” to the House of Commons on January 25, 2016, Monsef states the following at about 1m:15s in reference to herself: “Where the concept of a 31 year old parliamentarian and cabinet minister was unthinkable.”

    Thirty-one years old as of January 25, 2016? If Monsef believed she was born in November 1985 as of this date, she would be only 30 years and two months old, not 31. Leaving aside the utterly bizarre situation where we have a minister of democratic institutions in a major Western nation changing both her birthplace and birth date well after holding office, the information at hand suggests that Monsef may not have believed she was born in November 1985 much earlier than media reports otherwise suggest. Monsef’s Wikipedia page history also shows birth date changes going back and forth over the past year, which seems most odd.’

    TrueDOPE will give her an Odor of Canada

    • Editor

      Do we still give those out since we’re a post-national state?

          Good one. And unfortunately, too true!

  • ontario john

    Since she represents the Peterborough riding, maybe the fire at the mosque there was a fake as well.

    • moraywatson

      Everything about islam is fake. Except the threat of death for apostates.

  • moraywatson

    They can’t even vet a cabinet minister properly. But those 25,000 Syrians…? Nothing to worry about…

  • A Hamilton Guy

    She’s a perfect lieberal. Lies, lies ,lies. A True practicioner of her faith.
