Jonathan Kay: Why Canada’s refugee policy may actually be doing more harm than good

On December 10, 2015, Justin Trudeau appeared at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport to personally greet the inaugural planeload of Syrian refugees arriving in Canada. “Welcome home,” he told the first travellers off the plane — a couple with a 16-month-old child. Outside the terminal, ordinary Canadians dropped off gifts of plush toys, hats, mittens and parkas.

The sight of Syrians being personally greeted by the most powerful man in Canada — after having fled a county ruled by a regime that drops poison gas on its own population — ranked among the most moving scenes in modern Canadian history.

(Okay, that opening is vomit inducing, but it gets better)

    The sight of Syrian invaders being personally greeted by the most treasonous douche in Canada ranked among the most revolting scenes in modern Canadian history.

    • It rates as the most disgusting photo op ever by a Canadian politician, pure unadulterated bullshit.

      It’s a crowded field. There are pictures of Kadhr grinning about the $1.5 million given to him by traitorous douche Dildeau.

    Kay got fired from the Walrus…sorta like fired from a dollar store
    Kay is full tilt Russia conspiracy tin whack

    • I thought he resigned, but no matter, that the Natpo runs him tells you how big the suck is on for tax dollars to keep the rag afloat, they told all contributors to the Rebel to make a choice either the NatPo or Ezra. Thathad nothing to do with “white supremacists” and everything to do with sucking Justin off for tax dollars, the Sun did the same to Furey etc at Postmedia’s insistence.

        yes he quit…still a dollar store

          And I understand that they’ll soon be replaced by robots or something.

    Typical nonsense from someone I prefer to never read.

    Why did he not start at the beginning?
    The initial shipment that had Shiny Pony fawning over them on arrival are fake refugees who had settled down in Beirut in prior years and were recruited by UN approved NGOs at the behest of cold uncaring Harper Hitler.
    Carefully kept in the shade were some disembarked real Christian Syrian refugees who didn’t fit the photo-op’s intent.

    • Kay is a lost cause but once in awhile his brain functions, pity his Mom was forced off the Rebel as a condition of having her pieces run in the dying NatPo.

      • David Murrell

        I wonder where Mr. Kay is going for his next paying job? He did have to resign from the left-wing (and federal government-subsidized ) Walrus, after a number or regular writers pulled their contributions, after Kay tweeted something right wing (what he tweeted escapes me, given I no longer take anything he writes seriously).

    • Or the Yazidis.

    Moving, like a bowel movement.

      You got that right.

    “May be doing more harm than good…” There is no may about it; in fact I challenge anyone, especially Kay, to cite the good.

    • It was all about virtue signalling.

      • terrence22

        And ONLY about virtue signalling

  • Ho Hum

    “The sight of Syrians being personally greeted by the most powerful man in Canada — after having fled a county ruled by a regime that drops poison gas on its own population — ranked among the most moving scenes in modern Canadian”

    A) Assad did not gas his own population – there is ZERO evidence of this. If Kay actually believes this he is a clueless moron.

    B) It was not ranked among “the most moving scenes in modern Canada”. Maybe it was “moving” to a clueless bleeding heart liberal like Kay but to normal Canadian’s it was SICKENING to witness this invasion of our country aided and abetted by the traitor terrorist loving Jihadi-Justin Trudeau.

    • The Deplorable Rosenmops

      Absolutey sickening.

    Barbara Kay must be very disappointed in her son. He is one of the reasons I stopped subscribing to the National Post.
