…A working group has been struck to reach an agreement on how Quebec will be reimbursed for $146 million in unanticipated costs it says it has shouldered as a result of the influx of border crossers last year.
A triage system will be also set up to ask asylum seekers arriving in Quebec where in Canada they are ultimately hoping to stay — something Heurtel said he has also been pushing for.
He wants Ottawa to help those aiming to settle outside of Quebec to get where they want to go. For those who want to stay, work permits are now being issued faster thanks to a recent cut in wait times.
Which begs the question; Why are we giving these invaders a “choice” of where to live to begin with? Don’t we have an uninhabited, storm tossed island in the Atlantic that’s lacking shelter, food, water and sanitation where we could dump them until we send them home on a raft?
