The Cost Of Islam To Canada

The astonishing dollar figure of 25 Million pounds a week from the UK rams home the costs of Islam. While Canada’s costs are not likely as high, we can be assured that the Religion of Peace is a money pit.

£25million-a-week bill to keep watch on ISIS followers who return from Syria

MOUNTING round-the-clock surveillance on all 350 radicalised Britons who have returned from Syria and Iraq would cost £25million a week, it emerged last night.

It would require a team of at least 10 to monitor each one at a cost of £10,000 a day, a security expert said.

Colonel Richard Kemp, former head of counter terrorism at the Cabinet Office, said: “That is a huge number of potential terrorists and, if the Government is doing the job as thoroughly as it says it is, it will require vast resources.

“To track one person effectively takes at least 10, or more probably 15 people, which would cost at least £10,000 a day, not including other measures such as the monitoring of mobile phones and email traffic.


I have written previously on the cost of Islam to Canada. Below is a post from April 2015 that provides a depressing snapshot of Islam’s hard dollar costs.

These guys don’t work cheap.

How Much Is The Religion Of Peace Costing Canada?


How much is the Religion of Peace costing Canadians in security, military commitments, humanitarian relief and domestic “outreach efforts” by variousCanadian government institutions?

Unfortunately we can’t know with certainty. An accurate tabulation of the total annual expenditure is not likely possible owing to reasons of “national security”, “political correctness” and a simple inability to isolate and gather relevant data from disparate federal, provincial and municipal sources.

But we can put together an incomplete snapshot.

Following are the operating budgets for the CSE, CSIS and the RCMP, based on the estimates for 2014.

Communications Security Establishment 422,207,847 

CSIS 513,007,839

RCMP 2,758,076,493

I doubt that any of these organizations would provide a figure if asked the amount spent on countering Islamic terrorism, but know that surveillance is an expensive business. CSIS has stated that as of October 2014 it was working on “63 national security cases linked to terrorism and involving 90 suspects”. Surveillance is a time and man-power heavy endeavor, it isn’t a single gumshoe following a target. Factor in the costs of electronic surveillance, research etc and it all adds up pretty quickly.

These figures (below) from a Star editorial give some idea of the resources expended by the RCMP to counter the Islamic terror threat and while we can’t know the exact figure in total an equal percentage of the budget allocation for both CSIS and the CSE can be assumed:

“Indeed, in 2013-14 the RCMP diverted $22.9 million and 600 staff members from operations fighting organized crime, economic crime and other national security files to INSETs.”

So on top of the 22.9 million diverted you also have to factor in the salary and benefits of 600 additional staff and add that to the existing budget (Staff salary etc) for the RCMP’s anti-terrorism operations. While far from complete it provides an eye-opening look at how much Islam is costing the RCMP alone.

This is on top of the annual federal funding for “INSETS”, from the same Star article.

“As the Star’s Alex Boutilier reported last week, documents indicate that the RCMP’s anti-terrorism units are shockingly underfunded and understaffed.

That’s partly because they have had to target new resources at anti-terrorism activities as the threat has grown. But it’s also because the RCMP’s Integrated National Security Enforcement Teams (INSETs) have not received an increase in funding since 2003. Yes, 2003. Instead, funding has remained static at $10 million a year.

Note that INSETs (Integrated National Security Enforcement Teams) are established in Edmonton and Calgary Vancouver, Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal.

This is not the entire RCMP anti-terrorism expenditure but merely a snapshot and note that the figures cited above are for 1 year alone. We simply can’t know what the total is for any or all of the primary agencies involved as it likely would never be released publicly.

Of late local police forces, like Edmonton, have set up their own anti-terrorism units. How much is this costing Albertans? How many other Canadian cities have followed suit? At what financial cost?

Canada’s ISIS mission will cost us 528 Million over the course of the coming year. We aren’t there because of Rogue Mormons.

Canada’s humanitarian relief efforts for Islam’s current civil war are expected to top the 700 Million already allocated for Syria alone.

For Iraq? I don’t have firm numbers beyond a report dated August 2014 – “Canada has sent Iraq a total of $16 million in humanitarian aid since the beginning of 2014, with $6.8 million dedicated to helping victims of civil unrest, and $9.5 million earmarked for helping Syrian refugees.”

700 Million for Syria? Soon we’ll be talking serious money and note that no figures are available for the settlement costs arising from the “10,000 refugees” we are being asked to take in.

As for Community Outreach Efforts, again we simply can’t know but every city with a significant Muslim population has its police force set up some form of Muslim community liaison office. All of it requires time and manpower to operate.

How much has Canada spent on the trials of domestic Muslim terrorists? On the incarceration of those convicted? On the deportation of Muslim undesirables deemed security risks?

In 2013 the government announced a program to deal with honour killings in the Muslim community to the tune of $306,040 in federal money. What of Muslim legalbids to establish Islamic supremacy such as in the Niqab affair? Judges and lawyers don’t work cheap.

In the decade following 911 Canada’s Muslim population was doubled via immigration. Immigration from Muslim majority states accounted for almost 25% of Canada’s total immigration intake during that period and immigration from Muslim nations continues to represent about 18% of our total intake.

On top of hard dollar costs what is the intangible price our society pays?

42% of Canadian Muslims polled agree that Western & Islamic Cultures Have“Irreconcilable Differences”.

Add it all up and I bet the cost is nearing the 2 Billion a year mark of late.

Sorry, but I don’t see a return forthcoming on our investment in the Religion of Peace.

    Next you are going to claim that the media censors itself when it comes to even a cartoon image of Mohammad.

    • I might!

      • Exile1981

        I have a solution to how much we are spending tracking returned jihadies. Actually 2 solutions. a low cost one and a super low cost one.

        The low cost one involves dropping them into syria, with a parachute to live in the 14th century like they want.

        The super low cost option involves a one time $2 fee cost for a lead slug to remove them as a concern.

        • Cheryl

          Yet we keep letting these barbaric people into this country. What do we have in Canada, nearly 2 million Muslims? They should all be sent back to fix their own countries and leave Canada alone. You have to wonder why our politicians can’t figure this out.

          • Exile1981

            Political correctness and vote whoring?

          • 1 million Muslims. The population was doubled by immigration in the 10 years following 911.

  • Alain

    The cost for “security”, as bad as it is, is only a drop in the bucket to the real cost of allowing these invaders entry and residence. There is also a tremendous drain on our social programs and services, far exceeding any return benefits. Finally, and the most important, is our loss of freedom and liberty due to their presence. It is impossible to attach a dollar figure to that, but if one tried it would be the biggest cost. It is pure evil for our government and politicians to allow this to continue. We are faced with the CPC keeping the status quo and the NDP and Liberals who would increase the numbers, but not a single party willing to close the gates.

    • Elephant in the Thread

      Great comments. It’s important for this message to get out to the Canadian public. We have to the job our cowardly biased media won’t. They blatantly cover up or ignore the truth to detriment of all Canadians and in turn ignoring the service the media was originally created to do which was to expose and report the truth.

      • David Murrell

        Alain and Elephant,
        You two are so right, I am reading some books right know on the “Bleeding Kansas” period the 1850s, in the United States, before their Civil War. We are in that period now, with regards to Islam. The, the pro- and anti-slavery societies were incompatible — and the only way to destroy slavery was to go to war against Southern culture. And in Kansas and Missouri, the pro-Southern forces wrought terrorism against the anti-slavery side.

        Today with face the same situation. There are two incompatible societies, non-Islam and Islamic societies. They cannot coexist, We must act akin to the anti-slavery fervor back then, and to take the fight against Islam. We must fight a moral crusade against Islam. And by the way, Islamic law supports slavery.

        p.s. I am descended from old South heritage.

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          Slavery would have withered on the vine anyway.
          It’s massively unproductive.
          (For example, imagine the overhead you would have if you rode a horse to work instead of driving a car.)
          Anyway, it’s not just that two societies aren’t compatible.
          It’s that one is fundamentally far superior to the other.
          Our society can produce computers.
          Theirs never would have them in our absence.
          Egypt imports most of it’s food.
          Why can’t it sustain itself?
          Saudis buy cars but cannot fix them.
          I can go on but it’s just shooting fish in a barrel.

          • David Murrell

            I agree with what you are saying. I think the 1850’s culture in the U.S. North was modestly superior to the Southern counterpart, but the Southern culture was rock solidly in place. At that time, international slave imports to the U.S. was abolished, but there was a thriving slave trade industry within the U.S. South that kept slavery going.

            With Islam today, I quite agree that Western society is vastly superior to Islam (and so are the other non-Islamic cultures — India, Russia, Thailand, etc. — at war with Islamo-nazism today). But Islam is not going to disappear on its own, as evidence shows. So we need a total war — with bullets and ideas — to destroy thus noxious religion, just like the U.S. needed a total war against the U.S. South. I have a soft spot for Southern Confederacy heroes like Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson. But Lincoln was right and the South was wrong. Today, we need a spirited pro-humanitarian movement to fight against Islam and its anti-human practices.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            I mostly agree with what you say about today’s problem.
            But first let’s talk about the problem of yesterday.
            I don’t agree that the Civil War was about slavery.
            It was more about Lincoln saying that the United States were indivisible.
            Slavery was a fig leaf to cover his ‘nads when things weren’t going so well for the North at the time.
            If the South had been allowed to continue as they were I believe they would have modernised their agriculture as the mechanization of the nascent Industrial Revolution made more economic sense.
            The slaves would have become unemployed.
            It’s a war that did not have to happen.

            Now, to today.
            Maybe we need a war against them eventually but if we were to just wall them off and vigorously defend borders for a while then they would be happy to kill themselves off.

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      And food poisoning in their ‘restaurants’.

  • Mal

    Their choice. If they re-enter Britain, they die.
    Don’t “monitor” them; grease the bastards.
    Done and dusted.

  • DVult

    Why don’t they just round up these 350 jihadists and hang them? Rope is cheap especially if you check the flyers before buying.

  • Elephant in the Thread

    Yes, the Muslims are the worst of the immigration cohort draining the system but this general theme applies to most of the new immigration groups. The Chinese are trying to influence our politics with their spies and sleeper agents i.e. Michael Chan (Liberal Minister) being one of them. Australia estimate 11,000 spies and sleeper agents in their country. I’m sure Canada has the roughly the same, how much does it cost to track all of these agents? Mass immigration is not worth the cost and is draining all of our wallets to pay for them.

  • Everyone Else

    At least it’s jobs for Canadians.

    • This is true.

    • Nah – they’ll put Muslims on the job, just as they put Muslims in airports for security.

      • Everyone Else


  • Don’t let them in and deport those that got in.

  • The Butterfly

    It’s really costing much, much more than this. Islam is a cancer upon humanity.

  • Bataviawillem

    This shit is going to bankrupt us.

    • Islam will. I note the Italians Chinese and Scots haven’t.

      • Bataviawillem

        Indeed, there is no ethnic or religious minority as parasitic and harmful as these muslim invaders.

  • pike bishop

    There is $2000.0 worth of optics in that picture.

    • Looks like some nice equipment.

    • I suspect that the way things are going, in a few years they may need snipers on the US Consulate rooftop instead of observers with expensive optics.

  • Millie_Woods

    £25million-a-week bill to keep watch on ISIS followers who return from Syria.

    The Brits are ‘borrowing’ money for this. They should have a special bond issue to see how many people are willing to fund this crap.

    • I imagine our own costs would be proportionately as high.

    • Note that it’s 25 Million Pounds so double that and then some for Canadian bucks.
