|In 2009, our Conservative government introduced the Visa policy to stop the flow of increased bogus refugee claims by Mexican citizens.
But in late 2016, the Trudeau Liberals reversed that decision.
This was an early Christmas gift for Mexico’s drug cartels.
A Canada Border Serves Agency report says lifting the visa makes it easier for Mexican drug cartels to do business right here in Canada:
In other words, Justin Trudeau has put the lives of all Canadians at greater risk.
With the lifting of this Visa policy, Canada has now been forced into combating an onslaught of new asylum seekers.
And when asked about what actions the Government intends to take, Trudeau’s Immigration Minister said “it would be premature to speculate.”
Fact: there was no formal review of the Mexican visa policy reversal.
The decision to lift the visa requirement is short sighted and poorly thought out.
And it also comes with a hefty price tag. Canadians could be on the hook for hundreds of millions of dollars in the coming years to cover the costs of this decision.
It is clear that Justin Trudeau’s only policy goal is to undo the hard work of the Conservatives.
Oh Canada, We Came to the Hockey Game for Thee
News item : March 18, 2017:The federal government and the Edmonton Oilers partnered to welcome 12 new Canadian citizens at Rogers Place Saturday afternoon as part of Canada 150 celebrations. Minister of Infrastructure and Communities Amarjeet Sohi and Mayor Don Iveson attended the swearing-in ceremony at Rogers Place.
As an introduction to Saturday night’s NHL hockey game in Edmonton on March 18th, a dozen “New Canadians” were honoured after their swearing-in ceremony by being called out on to the ice wearing bright orange Edmonton Oilers’ jerseys. They waved to the applause of the crowd, and then joined in on the singing of our national anthem. How stirring.
Message: We are a land of immigrants, and no matter where immigrants come from, they will become good ordinary Canadians like you and me, eager to share their ‘diversity’ by partaking in ours. I mean, what could be more Canadian than wearing the home town’s hockey jersey at a hockey game?
“This is a special one because Rogers Place is a hallowed ground for hockey,” Edmonton Mayor Iveson said. “It’s such an important part of Edmonton’s story and history, so to know that these Edmontonians and new Canadians will always associate their citizenship with this place and the heart of our city is just an exciting memory for us to all carry.”
Thus the myth of Canada as a welcoming country that needs more and more and more immigrants is firmly cemented into the mentality of all those in attendance, and the viewing audience at home as well. The fact that people from India, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Afghanistan or Somalia are so happy to settle here in this largely cold wasteland flatters us. It is as if we were the owners of a restaurant who regard the line-up of patient customers outside as a compliment to our fine cuisine.
But there is a difference. Restaurant owners know that their restaurant has a limited seating capacity, just like Rogers Place. Neither Canadians nor their political representatives understand that there are limits to growth. Contrary to conventional wisdom, we have limited resources. Even drinkable water is in short supply, never mind arable farmland. And as far as affordable urban land goes, well, as Mark Twain would have said, “they’ve stopped making it.” http://womenmakenews.com/content/story/myth-canadas-underpopulation-lay-it-rest)
Now don’t get me wrong. I think we are right to honour the immigrants who helped to build this country. Just as I am right to be grateful to the carpenters who built my house. But guess what. My house is built. Done. With little room or need to grow. And while it needs ongoing maintenance, it doesn’t require that I bring in an army of carpenters every year, especially if they are going to wake me up in the wee hours by praying in the direction of Mecca.
The Cult of the Immigrant is an absurd anachronism for a mature nation that may well see robots doing half the work by mid century. The smokestack era and family farms are gone. We have no need for 300,000-450,000 extra bodies each and every year. Unless of course it is to fill the seats of our hockey arenas. Still, I don’t recall getting a dividend cheque from NHL hockey team owners for having to put up with rising house prices, unconscionable rents, appalling traffic congestion, deteriorating infrastructure, lower wages and sprawl that comes with growing the population and increasing their fan base.

The Border is Open: The Coming Crisis – CANADA – Border Enforcement Report by David Greenhalgh (retired police officer)
It seems Canada’s lax border policies toward illegal migrants are taking their toll on the city’s emergency shelter system.
Figures provided to the Toronto Sun from city shelter staff show that 810 refugees accessed the city’s shelter system in January, jumping to 882 up until March 13.
In fact, shelter, support and housing spokesman Pat Anderson says refugee clients are being referred from two non-city funded organizations that offer “temporary accommodation and services” to refugees but “are full.”
“The numbers we are providing are those who identify as refugees on intake,” she says.
Mario Calla, executive director of COSTI Immigrant Services, insists this increase is not from government-sponsored Syrian refugees but “asylum seekers.
“When they come over the border, they’re not sponsored by government or private groups and so they have nowhere to go…some of them have ended up in shelters,” he said this past week. “All government-sponsored (Syrian) refugees are in their own homes, not in city shelters.”
Sun columnist Anthony Furey recently revealed that a crisis is brewing with illegal migrants crossing the border in between official ports of entry and exploiting a loophole in our immigration laws that allows them to file a refugee claim once in Canada.
Anderson says the city has added 400 more shelter beds to meet the increased demand and they continue to look for “more motel beds for refugees.”
Although motel beds operate more cheaply per night, at a $74.81 average per diem, those 400 extra beds are costing taxpayers roughly $900,000 per month.
Asked whether any extra money has been diverted from other shelter programs to accommodate the extra beds, Anderson said: “Not so far.”
And the cost just keeps on soaring. Wading through a myriad of acronyms for various types of refugees, Sue Ann Levy of the Toronto Sun estimates that the Syrians alone will have cost the taxpayers over $1-billion. That’s federal, provincial and municipal money. The exact threadbare pocket doesn’t really matter. It’s the same taxpayer.
The 2,200 government-sponsored Syrian refugees who have arrived on Toronto’s doorstep since last February have permanent housing and are being integrated into the community.
Community service providers — contacted this past week — also say after the big influx of fully government-subsidized refugees of last February, the plan is to resettle just 700 this year.
“The program continues but not with the same intensity as last year,” says Mario Calla, executive director of COSTI Immigrant Services, the agency charged with resettling the 2,200 government-sponsored refugees (or GARs) who have arrived in Toronto since February 2016.
That’s the good news.
Another 2,295 privately sponsored refugees (PSRs) have also come to Toronto in the past year, along with 431 known as Blended Visa Office-Referred (BOVR) refugees, part privately and part government-sponsored.
Based on the numbers posted on the Immigration and Citizenship Canada website (now three months old), Toronto has by far absorbed the most refugees in Canada, 10% of the GARs alone.
Which brings me to the less than positive news.
Untold millions of dollars have been spent and a jaw-dropping myriad of helping agencies have been involved in getting them settled since Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Premier Kathleen Wynne greeted the first planeload in mid-December of 2015 with expensive winter coats.
The actual money the feds have turned over to the GARs themselves and to COSTI and other agencies to resettle them remains a mystery. I tried for two days to get a response from Immigration Canada only to be informed late Friday they were still working on my request.
However, based on news reports of one year ago, the Liberals could end up spending far more than $1 billion when all is said and done, more than $100-million of that to settle Toronto’s 2,200 GARs alone.
It doesn’t end there.
Manuel Alas-Sevillano of Ontario’s citizenship and immigration ministry says they’ve committed $15 million in new funding to “enhance settlement and integration services” for the 17,000 refugees (both GARs and PSRs) accepted in this province.
That does not include free dental and health care provided under the Interim Federal Health program and OHIP, he confirmed.
Once their first 12 months in Canada are up, the feds no longer provide income support to the GARs and they “either have a job or they go on social assistance until their English level gets better,” says Calla.
That’s precisely what is happening. Calla says only about two out of 10 of the GARs have come here able to speak English, compared to 80% of the PSRs.
But even if a refugee is privately sponsored — and can speak English — government money has gone into easing their integration into the community with a fresh layer of bureaucrats created to do so.
At City Hall, the Toronto Newcomer Office which has grown from three staff in 2015 to six staffers this year and from a budget of $361,000 to $785,000.
City spokesman Jennifer Wing said the Newcomer office — which works “strategically” to support the resettlement of refugees but does not help refugees directly — discovered early on that PSRs needed services too.
Wing says the office itself doles out money to agencies like Lifeline Syria, Catholic Crosscultural Services and COSTI to “help refugee families directly” while managing an Interagency task force “to facilitate coordination and information sharing,” and organizing information fairs for private sponsors.
COSTI got $92,000 from the city, over and above the undisclosed federal money, to help move refugees into permanent housing. Lifeline Syria, which received $65,000 from the city of Toronto this past year, also only works with privately sponsored cases.
Spokesman Krystal Thomson says they’ve completed 384 cases involving 1,076 refugees while another 202 cases with 575 refugees are still in the pipeline waiting to be processed by the government.
In fact, Mayor John Tory, his wife and his sister have spent $27,000 to sponsor a refugee family through Lifeline Syria that has yet to arrive.
According to Tory, the family is “waiting in a refugee camp inside Turkey.” He believes that the delay is because the feds are taking a pause to allow refugees already in Canada to be absorbed.

Our advice to Manitoba Premier Pallister : LOOK AFTER YOUR OWN PEOPLE. DO NOT IMITATE THE EXAMPLE OF TRUDEAU.
The government of Manitoba is currently experiencing a flood of refugee claimants on its border with the U.S. Well over 500 have entered and the possibility of thousands more looms. To deal with this issue, Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister has just announced that his government will provide financing for 14 new housing units. His announcement is naive and shows that he has been duped by the immigration lobby. Instead of catering to them, he should be pressuring back-boneless Trudeau to stop the inflow. Several months ago, Trudeau should have given orders to return these fake refugee claimants to the U.S. Instead he announced that Canada would welcome them.
Our advice to Premier Pallister is this : LOOK AFTER YOUR OWN PEOPLE. DO NOT IMITATE THE EXAMPLE OF TRUDEAU.
Financing housing units for fake refugees will divert scarce resources from the needy populations of Winnipeg and the rest of Manitoba.
According to a University of Winnipeg report, about 135,000 of the population of Winnipeg (Canada’s seventh largest city) is at risk of becoming homeless. Winnipeg itself has 7600 `hidden’ homeless, 1,915 short-term or crisis sheltered people and 350 living on the streets.
Currently, the government of Manitoba is unable to look after the homeless in its own capital.
We give the same advice to other provincial premiers (especially Ontario’s Kathleen Wynne) and to the gross hypocrites on the municipal councils of Toronto, Hamilton, London, Ottawa, Vancouver, Montreal and other so-called “sanctuary” cities. Looking after people who call themselves refugees may give Canada’s useful “municipal idiots” some temporary noble and heroic delusions. It will definitely win them congratulations from the immigration lobby who are constantly looking for fools to support them.
But the “useful idiots” should remember that the immigration lobby (immigration lawyers, immigration consultants and ethnic advocates) consists of the foulest-smelling sludge in the immigration advocacy cesspool. Most of the lobby pretend to be protectors of the world’s persecuted, but they do what they do to maintain their jobs, increase their personal financial gain and to betray Canada. As for their clients, most of them are here to plunder Canada.
