Some 21 months ago, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau flung open Canada’s door to asylum seekers and 36,000 irregular migrants have since crossed our borders from the United States, severely taxing the city’s social service system.
Now, as then, statistics show the feds never really had a plan for those desperate people except to pretty much dump their care and welfare on the city and the province — which have been scrambling to find permanent housing, schooling and paying to accommodate and provide social assistance to irregular migrants.
There is nothing racist about opposing illegal immigration.
Indeed, while polls show most Canadians are opposed to the stream of illegal immigrants flooding across our borders in Quebec — over 15,000 so far this year — it is the illegal part they oppose, not the immigrant part.
I’m guessing there will be far less opposition to the announcement this week by Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen that Canada will admit 350,000 immigrants annually by 2021 (up from 310,000 now).
Actually Lorne many people are upset at the Liberal effort at population replacement. They may not tell pollsters that, but the anger is there. Mass immigration is an anti-Canadian policy designed solely to benefit the corporate and political class. A Ponzi scheme that will reduce access to scarce public resources, depress wages and destroy the very welfare state they pretend it will prop up. Ever heard of automation Lorne?
Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic will not sign the UN’s Global Compact for Migration (GCM), Croatian newsportal Direktno reports.
The website bases the decision on a Facebook post by Croatian TV journalist Velimir Bujanec. He asked her position on the GCM after a lot of people we’re interested in her stance.
In the answer his editorial board received, President Grabar-Kitarovic literally states: ‘Be assured I will not sign the ‘Marrakech Agreement’, Bujanec writes on Facebook.
Macleans published this Liberal Party propaganda piece on the UN’s Global Compact For Migration co-authored by Ahmed Hussen. As far as I know the compact is non-binding but as we have seen the Liberal government has opened the immigration floodgates and will no doubt use it as an excuse to support their irresponsible immigration policy.
After several days of studying the reaction to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s carbon tax for provinces that don’t want a carbon tax, the case in favour seems to go like this: it’s not much, and it probably won’t accomplish a lot; it’s complicated and badly structured; it adds another burden on small business enterprises already stuck with umpteen nitpicky federal and provincial rules hampering their efforts to make a living; and Canada isn’t really all that big a problem as emissions go. But what the heck. At least if we do this we can say, “hey, we’re trying,” and maybe stop arguing about it for a while. And besides, what’s the alternative?
A majority of Canadians give the federal government bad marks for the way it has handled asylum seekers entering Canada between official border crossings, a new poll suggests.
Sixty-eight per cent of respondents believe the government is handling the issue of irregular asylum seekers poorly, according to the DART Insight poll prepared for Postmedia. In contrast, 65 per cent of respondents feel the federal government is doing a good job managing the regular immigration system.
The latter finding makes no sense to me unless you support the conversion of Canada into a balkanized low trust society that despises you and your heritage and the accompanying lowered living standards and overall quality of life brought about by mass immigration.
The popular press will do anything rather than admit that Justin and his friends are in trouble:
Twelve months from now, Canadians will pass judgment on the Trudeau government and decide whether its first mandate should be its last or if it deserves another four years.
As the one-year countdown to the next federal election on Oct. 21, 2019 starts ticking, Justin Trudeau’s Liberals appear reasonably well positioned to win a second term.
But a year is a lifetime in politics and the coming one promises to be particularly challenging for the Liberals, beset by a growing phalanx of hostile conservative premiers determined to put a spoke in Trudeau’s pre-election wheel.
In particular, they’re aiming to upend the introduction of a carbon tax — one of Trudeau’s signature policies, the central pillar of the Liberal plan for combating climate change.
It’s the next big thing on the government’s agenda and it’s the pivotal issue upon which Liberal strategists privately believe the next election will turn. It’s a fight they think they can win.
No Canadian government, whether Liberal or Conservative, is ever going to come close to achieving the greenhouse gas reduction targets they’ve claimed they can achieve.
The reality is that Canada’s so-called fight against man-made climate change is not an environmental program.
It’s a multi-billion dollar taxation and wealth redistribution program.
Quintuple killer Matthew de Grood is to be transferred to Edmonton where he may be granted supervised visits to the community or placement in a halfway house, the Alberta Review Board has ruled.
Why Canada will lead the charge on the UN’s global refugee plan
Op-ed: The UN’s global compact on refugees could be a game-changer—and Canada is well-placed to help make it a reality, say two cabinet ministers and a UN official
Why does the MSM give this Canadian hater a platform?
Plastic products are under attack from progressive politicians from coast to coast in Canada. In British Columbia, the mayor of Victoria is calling for a province-wide ban on disposable plastic packaging. In New Brunswick, Liberals want to join P.E.I. and ban plastic bags next year.
Catherine McKenna, the federal environment minister, rails incessantly against plastic drinking straws. And in Winnipeg, a plastic bag ban “will be considered again early next year,” reports the Winnipeg Sun. Such a ban could be supported by Manitoba’s PC government, which is also looking at ways to curb plastic bag use.
The Canadian government’s possible ban on handguns and semi-automatic long guns such as SKS, AR-15 and FN-FAL rifles would wipe out billions of dollars of wealth invested in guns and gear, based on estimates by TheGunBlog.ca.
