Axworthy moves UN Migration Pact from “non-binding” to “obligation” in less than 48 hours

David MenziesMission Specialist

The UN conference in Marrakesh had barely wrapped when Lloyd Axworthy, former Liberal cabinet minister and current chair of the World Refugee Council, delivered an impassioned plea in the Globe & Mail for Canada to allow those in the Central American migrant caravan to immigrate into our Great Dominion.

This Liberal dinosaur dates back to the days of the first Prime Minister Trudeau, and states in his column:

“Those volunteering in the Tijuana refugee camps reported that there is a significant number of single women with children in the caravan and the overt discrimination against them is a source of personal trauma for those denied any alternative.”

I’d like to hear Axworthy’s definition of “significant number.” We covered the caravan early last month in southern Mexico when it numbered about 5,000 migrants, and about 10 per cent were women and children while the other 90 per cent were young, able-bodied males.

He must be getting his talking points from the CBC. They reported that about 2,300 caravan members were women and children, which should win them the award for biggest fake news item of 2018!

The critical point though is that Axworthy notes Canada’s “obligations” to the migrants of the world now that we’ve signed on to the UN Compact on Migration.

Remember being told ad nauseum that the compact is “non-binding”?

And there’s the rub. The UN compact doesn’t have to be binding for virtue-signalling leaders like Trudeau, Merkel and Macron.

These compact-friendly leaders are already champing at the bit to resettle the world’s 258 million migrants and are only too happy to use this “non-binding” agreement as the “foundation” for domestic immigration policy.

Remember when politicians at least tried to pretend that they were listening to the electorate.These idiots like truedope and assworthy now just tell us to shut up and do what we are told!

Thanks for the update David. Somehow we just knew they would try and pull a fast one on the Canadian people.

Ordered my yellow vests Saturday, the protests will continue to grow.

Why can’t these moron understand that Canadians are not against immigration when it the is done through the proper channels? Media and poloiticians can keep spouting IRREGULAR all they want. It does not change the fact that it is ILLEGAL. To label concerned citizens as well as entire countries that have refused to sign this pact as far-right is disgusting. The majority are fed up with this krap.

Totally agree Muta,I heard Trudeau is trying to put in legisilation so future PM’s can’t reverse the policies he is forcing on us.
commented 2018-12-16 22:04:40 -0500
Most Canadians have not felt any direct impact from the current treasonous policies being foisted upon us by Trudeau with his willing partner quislings that call themselves the media.
Trudeau needs to go and we need to reverse everything he and his diabolical crew of miscreants have done to attack our freedom and liberty.
The United Nations has become a greater threat than any terrorist organization and needs to be stopped.

I think thats what we need Robert,start blocking some bridges and get some more truck convoys going,we gotta keep growing this movement until Trudeau is gone!!
commented 2018-12-16 20:09:24 -0500
Take heart Sheldon, there was a big demonstration and over a 600 truck convoy in Grande Prairie.

In the Tensions in Edmonton video, the difference in demographics between the two groups is quite striking. The Yellow vests are a more mature crowd while the counter protesters are younger millennial types. People with life experience versus those who are doing what their teachers and professors told them to do. I hope the counter protestors didn’t strain themselves in the climb out of their parents basement.

Whose supposed to pay for this “UN edict” ?
commented 2018-12-16 16:37:26 -0500
One thing for sure, antifa and the liberal progs who point fingers and name call us, must be ignored. Its how they keep us in check, how they quell us, “how they rule ya” . Their labels are projection and don’t apply to us. “Its not my coat it doesn’t belong to me.” Don’t give them the power.

I absolutely love the idea of a revolution. Something like it has to happen here, however it can’t be violent because we will lose that kind of fight. In 1986, over a million Filipino citizens gathered in Manila to overthrow the president Ferdinand Marcos, who had recently refused to resign and declared martial law over the Philippines. Not a single citizen brought weapons or acted aggressively, they were only armed with songs and rosaries. Marcos’s military couldn’t harm the defenseless crowd, and voluntarily returned to their barracks. Marcos was exiled within four days.

Maybe that is a dream scenario I don’t know.

I randomly found this when I was searching non violent revolutions,

To Peter,you could feel it the resentment between the two groups.
commented 2018-12-16 14:14:02 -0500
Totally agree with you Liza,I’m so disappointed that the number of people showing up is so low,the UN compact and its effects are serious,the square in Edmonton should be overflowing with yellow vests. I’m worried by the time the majority of Canadians realize what’s being forced on us it will be to late. You can guarantee now that Canada has signed that damn pact,things will start happening quickly,our window of opportunity is slipping away!!

Sheldon said, " … and we are on the path to a revolution. "

I hate the idea of that, but I think you are correct.

" People should be packing the mezzanine of the House of Commons wearing yellow vests."
Don’t put them on until seated.
commented 2018-12-16 13:45:37 -0500
Next rally should be outside Gerald Butts house, after that Telford’s, then Justin’s. How many Canadians are aware of the influence those two have on Justin. How many have even heard of them? People should be packing the mezzanine of the House of Commons wearing yellow vests. That way more of the public will start paying attention and that is what we need. The backing of a few like minded politicians and known speakers wouldn’t hurt.
Violence is the only sure way to get attention, but it will be the wrong kind. Justin would love to shut down the country before the election and we can’t give him an excuse.

Look at the rallies in the UK, They are huge. Tens of thousands of people show up. They are outside the front doors of Mays residence or Parliament, they have speakers and politicians show up. It only takes a few hours to drive to London from just about anywhere on the Island. Its easy for people to show up.

Canada is big, but the populations surrounding the large centers like Ottawa,Toronto,Edmonton, Calgary etc are big enough but they do not show up. The Ottawa yellow vest protest had Quiggin which was excellent, but Bernier not showing up in support was a real bummer and has put a damper on the whole thing. Who gives a flying fruitcake what they call us or try to link us with. They will do that anyway. They do, do it anyway. Look at the abuse Scheer gets about the Rebel, even though he has publicly thrown us under the bus.
Who ever told Bernier not to go to Ottawa gave him bad advice in my opinion. Moral is low already, it didn’t help.

Hey Peter,I was at the rally in Edmonton yesterday and I had the chance to see first hand these college students/antifa idiots tripping all over themselves for socialism and Islam,and I was absolutely floored by the level of stupidity that these kids show . If they were in college most of these punks look like they crawled out of a sewer pipe,it was unbelievable when we have to fight against stupidity like that,instead of the real issues. After yesterday there is no doubt in my mind that Trudeau wants people divided and we are on the path to a revolution.

Why is it that Socialists are not eager and falling all over themselves to move to the true Socialist countries they love so much, such as Venezuela, North Korea, Cuba & more.

I laugh that the socialists in the Western democracies that call Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Canada, Sweden, Norway and Ireland as socialist countries. That is a flat out lie.

Employing some socialist programs in a democratic capitalist system such as in the countries I listed above does not make those countries socialist.

A socialist country employs socialism as a governmental structure, which makes two classes of people, the ruling class and the people; i.e. a dictatorship.

But the question still remains why socialists in the Western democracies don’t clamour to move to the socialist country they love so much.

We all better move to the United States before they put us in concentration camps.

Just one more thing to be reversed after the Liberals are voted out.

a liberal and the UN. too bodies have way over stayed their welcome.

How about this. We take the single mothers and children if the number is around 10%. The men (90%) who should be fighting for their own rights in their own countries, they go back to straighten things out at home. We can help them there with funding. They don’t have to be here. And how about we, Canada, take in some real refugees like South African farmers who are being raped, tortured and murdered in their own homes on a weekly basis?

If only the Liberals cared as much about Canadians as they do illegals.
