Declare yourself a Syrian refugee, you’ll likely eat better than you do now

“…Between now and March, Ottawa needs 300 rooms daily in each of the two cities to house about 600 refugees per night, according to a notice posted Friday on a government procurement website. Suppliers will also be expected to provide meals.

The length of stays will vary: some will leave the next morning, others will need “two or more nights.”

Hotels will be expected to provide up to three meals a day. It states the government will reimburse up to $15 per person for breakfast, $16 for lunch and $30 for dinner.”

      They’ll have to flip their status by leaving and returning.

    The meal allowance for a family of four refugees could easily feed one homeless Canadian for a month.

    • Martin B

      More like a whole homeless shelter. $61 X 4 X 31 = $ 7564!

      Homeless Canadians don’t register on Justin’s radar.

    Hey, it’s only money. And somebody else’s money at that.

  • If Truedope would have used private sponsorship as Harper did, instead of imposing State sponsorship, these people would be staying in homes, not hotel rooms and Military barracks. It’s a bit slower, but I think Harper was nonetheless able to bring in some 450,000 refugees during his tenure.

    Poor babies. Only $61 /day . Justin is too cruel.

    How much could McCallum cost Canadians? Possibly $32.5 U.S. billion.

    “Robert Rector, Senior Research Fellow at the Heritage Foundation, estimates the net cost of resettling 10,000 refugees averages out to $6.5 U.S. billion over the lifespan of those refugees.” Paul Bedford, Washington Examiner ( http://www.washingtonexaminer…. )

    Assuming that Canada’s lifespan costs would be in line with U.S. costs that means that lifespan costs of resettling 50,000 refugees in Canada would be about (10,000 x 5 x $6.5 U.S. billion) = $32.5 U.S. billion?

    I imagine that a lot of that cash will go to provider “overhead” rather than sumptuous feasts for migrant moochers.

    Still, the effect on taxpayers is the same ripoff.

    Governments are always lavish when spending other people’s money.

    Damn 61 a day for meal per diem? Must be nice.

    And I can’t afford dental work, because I’m just a hard-working Canadian trying to make it despite being fleeced by taxation.

    We have to take into consideration the extra cost of Halal meals that are culturally acceptable to the new arrivals.

  • Brett_McS

    Three meals a day? Bacon n’ Eggs, Ham on toast, Pork Chops.

    • Canadian Born

      Why not Kraft dinner, porridge, homemade soup or scrambled eggs? Oh wait that is just for our Canadian born people we don’t have the luxury of eating out to that extent.

    JT is very generous with other people’s money.

  • Raymond Hietapakka

    Pay them the money to stay home and eat. They’ll be the wealthiest folks back in the old neighbourhood.

  • BillyHW

    C’mon people, everyone knows that swanky hotels are the cheapest and most efficient way to house people.

    Your government is replacing you with more docile and vote-friendly imports, all while making you pay for it. And you voted for it you filthy disgusting cunts.

    Enjoy the Islamic rape.

    Late to the fair, Blazing, but have been away. That’s more than a “reasonable” meal allowance which CRA permits employers to give employees without a taxable benefit, said reasonable allowance being $17 per meal or $51 per day.
