Why refugees are choosing to cross into Manitoba instead of Saskatchewan

Manitoba is seeing a dramatic increase in refugees travelling over its land border from the United States to claim refugee status in Canada, according to figures from the Canadian Border Services Agency.

So why isn’t Saskatchewan seeing the same rise?

    The government in Saskatchewan is very smart. Spend the money on your own people. Look how the “refugees” even know how to shop for the best provinces to move to. Stupid us. Always taken advantage of by everyone as of late.

    The one making the biggest noise about these “victims” in Saskatchewan just HAPPENS to be an IMMIGRATION LAWYER (Bashir Khan, a Winnipeg immigration lawyer), and most likely an mooslime. He probably makes a LOT of money (taxpayer money) “defending” this victim refugees. .

      You bet he does.

  • Manitobans should ask themselves if they are ready to go under.

    CBC News is upset that Saskatchewan taxpayers do not want to support organized crime.

    Kind of makes me wonder why Alberta isn’t handing these victims illegal immigrants wonderful law abiding citizens money hand over fist. Rachael loves doling out the cash.

    This lawyer assumes that the Constitution applies to non citizens of Canada.

      Something is wonky here.
      I lived in Saskatoon five years ago and I saw an awful lot of sand pajamas in the Confederation Stupor Store.

    So not willing to do it for free in Sask, eh?
    BTW, the PCs run Manitoba, don’t they?
