If You Don’t Want 25,000 Poorly
Screened Syrians Pouring Into Canada,
Can we risk Islamic terrorism like the Paris shootings that killed 130 French men and women?
Canada got a taste of Islamic terrorism fall when two radical Moslems killed two Canadian soldiers right here in Canada
Now the government wants to bring in 25,000 Syrians and can’t get them here fast enough.
First, there is the question of security. The government plans to bring 10,000 by the end of the year and 15,000 more by the end of February.
Syria is a land filled with violent people and terrorists. One of the terrorists killed in the Paris attacks carried a Syrian passport and had recently come to Europe as a “refugee”. The government claims it will screen them. But how? CSIS takes six months to do a check on a civil servant for security clearance. But they already know who that person is and a great many details about his/her life. Many areas of Syria are controlled by terrorists. There are few reliable sources of information. The Americans, who are taking only 10,000 Syrians (and they are 10 times our size), take a year to do a security clearance.
Do we really want to take the risk?
What are these people, many of whom speak neither English nor French, going to do for work? Canada already has 1.5-million people out of work. Frankly, there are no jobs for them. If they do get a job it will be at the expense of a Canadian.
Then, there is the cost. The government admits that settling the Syrians will cost $678-million. (Globe, November 25, 2015) The Ontario Government is talking of opening a hospital that had been closed to house some of the Syrians. Strange, the wait times in hospitals get worse and worse for Canadian taxpayers but the government hops to it for foreigners.
Finally, there is the almost hysterical media hype of feel-good pro-refugee stories. However, the silent majority does not approve of the influx. Sixty per cent of Canadians oppose taking in the Syrians. (Leah McLaren, Globe and Mail, November 28, 2015)
Of course, Canadians are compassionate. Many people in Syria are suffering. However, it’s estimated that we can support a refugee in a refugee camp for $3,300 a year. To bring a Syrian here will cost taxpayers over $13,000. We can still show compassion by giving generously to help ensure that there is adequate food, clothing and shelter in the refugee camps. The answer is NOT to bring 25,000 of them here.
It’s time for the silent and ignored Canadian Majority to speak up. If you don’t want Canada to take the risk of 25,000 poorly screened Syrians, phone, write or e-mail your Member of Parliament AND e-mail the Prime Minister and the Minister of Immigration:
