    Visa-free travel between any first-world country and Mexico is absolutely a dumb idea. We never allowed it with Mexico for a very good reason. Mexicans once they reach the English speaking world rarely want to go back.
    The fact that they claim to be butthurt over restrictions is a lie.
    Mexicans KNOW that no other country wants too many of them.
    That error compounds when you even consider their citizens as eligible for any asylum claims.
    Completely insane policy.

    But think of the “vibrancy” Mexicans will bring to Canada. Diversity is our Strength!

      Yeah, because regular old Canadians are just too boring by obeying laws, holding jobs, and not drunkingly-raping their own 12-year-old daughters, but hey, just think of all those awesome recipes for street food and everything will be alright.

      The 1970’s brought us the Jamaican drug gangs and trade. Now we have the Triads , Vietnamese gangs, Russian gangs , somali drug gangs and others because Diversity is good according to Justin, Wynne and Tory .

    Keep all the refugees east of Manitoba and let the mental midgets that elected these retards deal with the consequences of their votes.

      I am kinda thing that all these New refugees—should go to the West.
      I guess we will wait and see .
      You Boys appear to be doing too well lately.

        Maybe we can send them north. Far north.

    Apparently Justin has convinced the Third World that Canada is just plain Nicer to “immigrants” than Trump’s meanie America.

    The not so funny thing it’s probably harder for me to emigrate to Mexico from Canada?

    Why would I want to do that. Never… just asking for a friend.

    We shouldn’t have a problem bringing in genuine refugees after they have been well vetted. Applying for refugee status means that you cannot stay in your country because your life is under direct threat. If the situation in Mexico is so bad, how can 2 million Canadians travel there every year. Theses people are clearly economic migrants.

    I predict that it will go back to the 600 per month where the MS-13 terrorists will pour in and make Toronto like LA .

  • How could this have gone wrong?
