Irregular or illegal? The fight over what to call the thousands of migrants streaming into Canada

On Monday, Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen publicly rebuked Ontario’s new government for using the term “illegal border crossers” in a press release.

“I’m very concerned by Premier (Doug) Ford and (provincial) minister (Lisa) MacLeod really making statements that are difficult to understand when it comes to how they’re describing asylum seekers,” Hussen told reporters in Halifax.

It really is time to kick Canada’s $2.6-billion dairy habit

Canadian politicians of all stripes have been rallying behind supply management since ending it became the United States’ price for renewing NAFTA. Maxime Bernier even lost his position on the Conservative front bench for describing supply management as a cartel.

Supply management is a cartel. Although lawful, it operates like any price-fixing scheme hatched in a smoky back room. What is more, it imposes costs on Canadian consumers that far exceed the costs of all other price fixing combined.

We’re finally told what Trudeau’s carbon tax will cost us. Are you sitting down?

It took some poking and prodding and (finally) committee testimony, but now we know what the bill will be for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s carbon tax. In a report to the Senate Standing Committee on Energy, the Environment and Natural Resources, University of Calgary economics professor Jennifer Winter revealed the bottom line of the Trudeau Carbon Price.

Using energy-consumption data from Statistics Canada, and imputing prices from average household expenditure on transportation fuels and provincial gasoline prices, Winter calculated the impact of the carbon tax on a typical Canadian household across different provinces. Far from being painless as advertised, the costs to households will be significant.

Trudeau and Wynne announce huge corporate welfare payout to Toyota

Toyota investing $1.4B in Ontario manufacturing plants

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne were in Cambridge, Ont., on Friday at a Toyota plant for the announcement of a $1.4-billion a shot in the arm for Ontario’s auto manufacturing sector.

Trudeau said the governments of Canada and Ontario are each kicking in $110 million.

Trudeau said the investment will help secure 8,000 existing jobs and the addition of 450 new jobs. He said the funding will also help keep Canada’s auto sector competitive.


We’ll never know if these “new jobs” ever materialize, no one follows up on these things at the end of the day it’s just smoke and mirrors and you’ll pay big-time for it.  This is corporate welfare plain and simple.

“Diversity Champion” appointed to Senate by Justin calls Canadians “Xenophobes” for objecting to illegal alien invasion

Asylum seekers are not causing a crisis for Canada by Ratty Omidvar

…With a population of 36 million people. Canada is positioned well to deal with these numbers. And although they are crossing informally, it’s not that there is just an open border for them. The RCMP has done a good job processing the migrants and ensuring safety and security.

The only thing that is a looming crisis is the rhetoric that is picking up. More and more voices are using populist tones to their criticisms. The opposition dedicated a day last week in the House of Commons to score political points on the backs of asylum seekers. And a Quebec political leader even called for a wall to be built along the Chemin Roxham. I wonder where he got that idea.

This is dangerous. What can be looked at as legitimate questions can easily turn nasty into a wave of dangerous populism.

Let’s be honest. The common thread of today’s populism is anti-immigration. This populism legitimizes xenophobia and encourage the separation of people into “us” and “them”. It creates a politics that sees the other not simply as different, but as different and therefor dangerous. Adversaries become enemies.

Dangerous populism? Heaven forbid the peasants start thinking for themselves.

Canada will soon have more illegal border crossers than Syrian refugees

There are so many Mounties needed to process illegal border crossings in rural Quebec that the federal government is now spending $250,000 to build an unofficial police station on the U.S. border. In Toronto last week, Mayor John Tory announced that the number of refugee claimants in the city’s shelter system has quadrupled from 459 per night in 2016 to an average of 2,351 in 2018. And at least one Quebec politician is calling for a border fence with the U.S.


This is deliberate. As England’s Labour Party did Trudeau’s handlers are flooding the country with “diversity”.

Labour has always justified immigration on economic grounds and denied it was using it to foster multiculturalism.

But suspicions of a secret agenda rose when Andrew Neather, a former government adviser and speech writer for Tony Blair, Jack Straw and David Blunkett, said the aim of Labour’s immigration strategy was to ‘rub the Right’s nose in diversity and render their arguments out of date’.

More… Was Mass Immigration a Conspiracy?

The strongest evidence for conspiracy comes from one of Labour’s own. Andrew Neather, a previously unheard-of speechwriter for Blair, Straw and Blunkett, popped up with an article in the Evening Standard in October 2009 which gave the game away.

Immigration, he wrote, ‘didn’t just happen; the deliberate policy of Ministers from late 2000…was to open up the UK to mass immigration’.

He was at the heart of policy in September 2001, drafting the landmark speech by the then Immigration Minister Barbara Roche, and he reported ‘coming away from some discussions with the clear sense that the policy was intended – even if this wasn’t its main purpose – to rub the Right’s nose in diversity and render their arguments out of date’.

The political debate over migrants hasn’t turned ugly yet – but it could

The Liberals want the Conservatives to watch their words. The Conservatives want a plan. They’re both right.


No. They’re not.

All our political parties serve the same masters and it isn’t you and it isn’t me. All believe in open door immigration and neither cares where that comes from so long as the “economy” read a surplus of cheap labour is maintained and ethnic vote whoring is built in to the election process.

We no longer need mass immigration and certainly not from backward nations with toxic ideologies. The lies of multiculturalism and diversity shield and prevent politicians from honestly addressing the subject and the toll it takes on society in the form of contrived shortages in housing, suppressed wages, and the strain on public services. The divide and conquer Balkinization of our nation is deliberate because you must be silenced. Public dissent is demonized as racism or white supremacism or simply hate as the political class will stop at nothing to prevent lifting the veil on the great replacement.

Bureaucrats to Trudeau, hide the immigration numbers

…Effectively, top bureaucrats are warning the government, not to tell the public the real immigration numbers lest support for immigration fall. In other words, lie to the public to keep them onside.

I wonder how the public would feel if they knew the real total intake for 2016 was 848,000 people and not 260,000 as the poll claims.

Most Canadians express support for immigration… until they find out the Liberals opened the floodgates

Public govt. debate could undermine overall Canadian support for immigration, according to department data

OTTAWA — The federal government has been warned to take a cautious approach to publicly debating immigration over fears of reaching a “tipping point” that could undermine public support for welcoming immigrants.

Internal data prepared by the Immigration Department for a committee of deputy ministers suggests a majority of Canadians supports current immigration levels, but this support drops when they are informed of how many immigrants actually arrive every year.

…But most of those respondents believed the number of immigrants arriving every year was under 150,000. After they were told is has actually been 260,000 for the last few years, the number of people who then said they felt that was “too many” jumped from 23 to 32 per cent.

Got that? You’re being “managed” by globalist liars, they don’t want you to know the truth about immigration. It is a Ponzi scheme designed to benefit business and the political class but you will pay for it.

B.C. petition calls for crackdown on ‘exploitative’ birth tourism

A B.C. woman is petitioning the federal government to crack down on birth tourism, on the grounds that foreign women are deliberately having babies at hospitals in Canada, so their “passport babies” will have access to free healthcare, education and Canadian citizenship.

Kerry Starchuk, of Richmond, B.C., says the problem is particularly acute at Richmond Hospital, where a child is born to a foreign mother approximately once every day. All of these children immediately become Canadian citizens, by virtue of the fact they are born on Canadian soil. A CTV investigation from 2016 also found birth tourism to be on the rise in Canada.

“I think there has to be some kind of contribution here – some kind of connection,” she said of mothers who deliberately come to Canada to give birth. She told CTV Vancouver she’d much rather see these mothers contribute to Canadian society before reaping its benefits. She also raised concerns about the number of Canadian-born children who are raised overseas, with the freedom to move to Canada whenever they want.

Our political class has cheapened Canadian citizenship into a mere commodity. This was deliberate.

Canada’s Economic Development Bank loaned 52 million to corrupt cronies of SA’s deposed Zuma for a “missing” Bombardier jet

Canadian bank lent controversial South African family $52M for a luxury jet, which is now missing

In 2014, Canada’s state-owned export-import bank, Export Development Canada (EDC) approved a US$41-million (C$52-million) loan to South Africa’s Gupta family to buy a luxury jet, who then defaulted on the loan and hid the plane after a string of political corruption scandals.

Customers get their $25 Loblaw gift card as compensation for overpriced bread

Loblaw’s attempt to make amends for its part in a bread price-fixing scandal with $25 gift cards appears to be paying off — at least for some customers.

The grocer started mailing the rebates this week to people who’ve already registered online. Loblaw said the gift cards should take six to 12 weeks to arrive and customers have until May 1 to sign up.

This being Canada where it pays to be a white collar criminal no one will go to jail for this, a stern letter or wagged finger is about as severe a punishment any will face.
