Canada 1st Out Of Blocks To Appease Muslims Over #CharlieHebdo Attack – pledges to accept 13,000 more Syrian & Iraqi refugees

Canada will accept another 10,000 Syrian refugees over the next three years and another 3,000 Iraqis in 2015 as Ottawa opens its doors wider for people displaced by a civil war and the Islamic State’s reign of terror in the region.

It’s a huge promised increase in the number of Syrians – one that meets 10 per cent of the latest United Nations Refugee Agency appeal for nations to welcome refugees from the crisis in that country…

Immigration Minister Chris Alexander, who announced the move Wednesday, said the measure is about “doing the right thing” for “Syrians and Iraqis who face the worst forms of violence in the world today.”


That didn’t take long. As I wrote earlier this morning, politicians will lie about Islam to curry favour with Muslims in exchange for votes. And we have an election coming up. Funny how that works.

    There is some chance that this effort will prioritise religious minorities. Which would be a great way to keep the Muslims in the Middle East rather than bringing the problem to Canada.

    • No, they will back down from that. I do not trust them. Had they real principles they would not accept any more than they have already.

      This is an election year. I expect we are seeing the result of internal polling.

        The people who want Harper to let in more Muslims are not the ones who are going to vote for him, regardless of whether or not he lets in more refugees. He needs to do what his supporters want him to do, not the U.N. and the radical left.

      I would like to think you are right. I have my doubts. The piece you wrote on your site… may I borrow it?

      • Jay Currie

        By all means…

    • Mickey Oberman

      I hope.

      Does anyone really believe that they are actually capable of being able to weed out those posing as Christians or other non Muslims? Worse is that they probably won’t even try. Sorry but I am fed up with this crap; especially the fact that not a single federal politicial of any party is willing to address the problem with honesty.

    • James Hamilton

      That’s a wishful thinking, but it’s never going to happen as they can’t select people on the basis of their religion in a conflict zone. All are treated as ‘displaced’ & victims.
      The only thing which can keep them out is a firm ‘NO’ to all refugees from islamic countries.

        You’re right. What happens to people like Yazidis or Zoroastrians who are persecuted/murdered in Islamic countries.

        • James Hamilton

          Yes you’ve a very valid point about the welfare of Yazidis, Zoroastrians & Christians in the Arab & Persia.
          I would say help the minorities in their respective regions, instead of uprooting them & giving the islamists a free run of the country.

  • Mickey Oberman

    I can’t believe that our government would open our doors wide to thousands of potential terrorists who will work tirelessly to destroy our democracy and our country.

    Let Saudi Arabia and Qatar and other Islamic states take care of their own.
    We neither want nor need them.

    There are already too many here.
    We should be seriously thinking and acting to rid ourselves of them before we become another Sweden or Britain or France or Dearborn, USA.

  • Ron MacDonald

    The only true refugees from the Middle East are the Christians, let the rich Muslim nations take in the Muslims.

  • ontario john

    Its a good thing this isn’t the 1930s or the clowns we have for politicians would be importing nazis to gain voters. Mind you I don’t see much difference between islam and the nazis.

  • Raymond Hietapakka

    Whatever The People want, the politicians are right there, to f*** you and I out of it. It’s their way of telegraphing to us our peasant status.

  • James Hamilton

    Mr. Alexander you are disgusting your policy stinks. Bringing them in tens of thousand per year, I think the politicians have not learned any lesson from the situation in Europe.

    I would consider it as a treason on the part of our politicians (all).

    They are more concerned & doing about the welfare of the people who are sworn enemies of our culture & want to destroy our civilization than their own citizens.

  • WalterBannon

    fuck Syrian & Iraqi refugees

    and fuck our treasonous govt

  • lgeubank

    Sheesh! The moral Canada draws from the Muslim atrocity committed in France, is that they should allow more Muslims into their country? That can’t turn out well. Nor can our own policy of importing the medieval heathens here.
