Trudeau to Restore Health Cuts to Refugees

A middle finger to Harper AND Canadians:

The federal Liberals say they are poised to restore refugee health benefits slashed by the previous Conservative government.

Health Minister Jane Philpott said Friday the needs of Syrian newcomers would be covered as they arrive and word will come soon about reversing the overall cuts to refugee health care.

A few “logistical details” are being sorted out to make sure that “we can make a full announcement in the very near future,” Philpott said.

Prior to 2012, anyone awaiting a refugee status decision had their health costs — including dental, eye care and medications — paid for by the federal government until their application was decided and provincial health coverage kicked in.

But in June that year, the Conservative government drastically scaled back the available coverage.

At the time, the government said costs from the program were spiralling out of control because people were coming to Canada to make false refugee claims specifically to get free care.

The Conservatives launched a challenge to a Federal Court ruling that found the changes they had made to the health-care system for refugee claimants were unconstitutional.

They also reinstated some of the benefits, though not all, to comply with the court ruling. Philpott suggested the government would drop the legal appeal in keeping with the Liberal position.

I will agree to this if only Trudeau and his supporters pay the lot.

Remember- his net worth is 1.2 million dollars.

    The deficit is getting larger by the day.

    • WalterBannon

      it will balance itself, says Turdeau

  • Censored_EG

    An internationalist communist globalist radical socialist leftist cultural Marxist asshole. That’s Justin Trudeau. Not to mention a pseudo-Muslim…

  • Gary

    Wynne and Justin will go on their spending spree and use the Syrian islamists as the excuse for massive deficits because we need to look after the single mom and Orphans .

    • Censored_EG

      This is the biggest “fuck you” to the Conservatives in a long time. Canadians will be sacrificed on the altar of globalism and Muslim politics.

        You might want to watch what you are saying.

        I am sure Omar Alghabra is creating an enemies list. The question is, enemies of whom and how will we be dealt with?

        • winniec

          Omar Alghabra will call the mullahs, then the mullahs will call the ‘radicals’…you will be dealt with and the Leftards will applaud the death of a ‘racist’ who criticized the supremacist ideology of political Islam. They will take out Turdo last before they install an Islamic clone of Moammar Qaddafi.

  • Liberal Progressive

    Are you all racists?

    Of course those who claim refugee status in Canada deserve free medications, free dental care, free eye exams and eyewear, and free disability products like motorized scooters that average Canadians have to pay for, to make up for the many centuries of Canadian colonialism in third-world countries throughout the world.

    • Yo Mama

      And that means in Ontario they can get free gender reassignment surgery too at the expense of me and you.

      I am sure we will get a whole lot of Thai ladyboy refugee claimants soon, though I guess that is better than the Allahu Akbar, I want to behead you, crowd.

    • mauser 98

      Are you all racists? no you are the racist

    • winniec

      Exactly…when Canada provides the same HUGE HEALTHCARE that northern European countries provide…the MUSLIM REFUGEES WILL WANT TO COME TO CANADA IN THE MILLIONS!
      Permanent Libtarded voters to keep Justin in power until Muslims assassinate him and install one of their own.

      • Yo Mama

        But Riyadh already promised to make Justin Shiek of Canada as part of the great new world Caliphate!

  • Canadian

    I don`t have dental care!

    • Lisa needs braces.


      Don’t forget to thank your nearest Liberal voter for this screw-over.

      • Canadian

        And I`m not rich enough for his new tax cut, and he`s abolishing revenue splitting, the only thing that helped a bit.

        • Yo Mama

          Well now you get to split your income with all the new refugees!

          • Canadian

            They don`t need it, the Son-of-The-Other gives them new parkas!

        • Trudeau falls into that tax bracket.

          I demand that his tax returns this year be made public.

          I shant be filing one until Justin Moron and his ho-bag wife leave Canada.

    • Yo Mama

      You aren’t an illegal alien, er, I mean undocumented person, so you don’t deserve it.

      You are probably a Canadian citizen who has paid taxes for decades, so you don’t deserve it.

      It’s the people who the Liberals want to buy the votes of, the future voters in Canada who the Liberals feel deserve it. You and I just get to pay for it.

  • Rosenmops

    This is so depressing. I can’t stand hearing about it. Why did anyone vote for this stupid sack of shit?

    • Canadian

      If only he had promised free cell phones!

    • Brian Jones

      Because they in turn are stupid sacks of shit.

  • P_F

    Never in the human history any country has neglected their own citizens and spend their tax money on the citizens of other countries, especially the very people who have sworn and are here to destroy the culture, civilization, religion of the host country.
    In a sane world this would be treated as treason & punished likewise.

    • Yo Mama

      Feed the aligator! He promises if you do so, he will eat you last.

  • winniec

    That was the ‘good news’ everyone…more refugees will get VIP benefits…now the bad news … Justin and his 11 Muslim MPs want to bring FIVE MILLION MUSLIM REFUGEES TO CANADA. (You read that right…look it up.)

    • Rosenmops

      Please tell me this is a joke.

  • No Liberal!

    Now is the time to buy your guns and ammo and bury them in secret safe places, before the Liberals ban them to ensure the hordes at our border can take over and install their laws over ours.

  • reidjr

    There was a protest in Ottawa this summer about this not many people but some that did show up said the refugee health care should be for life not just for a year or so but the most odd thing is one women said asking her to show a health card is racist.

    • Rosenmops

      Oh for Pete’s sake. Yes Canada is racist because we don’t give free health care to everyone in the world. /s
