Edmonton jumps on “sanctuary city” bandwagon, ignoring lessons of Montreal

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

The city of Edmonton is looking to join Montreal as a so-called “sanctuary city” for undocumented asylum-seekers and illegal refugees to Canada. 

Edmonton City council says it wants to let people without proper immigration documentation use municipal services and facilities without threat of deportation. They’re calling it an “Access Without Fear” policy.

People with no legal paperwork that can identify who and what they are are seeking refuge from the enforcement of Canadian immigration law in Edmonton? What could possibly go wrong?

In my video, I remind City Hall they need only to look at Montreal to see what the real world consequences are for these sorts of short-short sighted, virtue signalling policies.

The good news is that Edmontonians have that brand new hockey arena downtown to house the guaranteed influx of people into their city. It’s going to be like Hurricane Katrina, but with better skyboxes!

Edmonton is full of communists.

Edmonton is having mayoral and council elections in October.

Get out and VOTE.

Distressing this is my hometown….to see us go the way of Montreal…Europe..Britain, Sweden, Germany…wish there was more I could do.

Sheila, since one can vote by just using “municipal” services documents, will those “undocumented” immigrants also be able to vote?

That new arena in Edmonton will be targeted. Islam doesn’t want you to enjoy sports, or concerts, or anything that is not in compliance with the religion of pieces.

“Trudeau has already destroyed Canada. I despise him…”

JANICE, he’s just a symptom of the real problem: the 64 percent of the electorate – the vast majority of that in our urban centers – that voted Liberal, NDP, or Green in the last federal election. Don’t fret too much about it. Just get out into the country, stock up on beer and popcorn, and watch our big cities turn into the real shitholes the residents obviously want them to be.

Time to vote out of office all these politically correct dimwits

If i ever see Mayor Don or any member of council being attacked, i will do absolutely nothing to help them.

David White would it not be ironic of some of these illegals attacked and heavily damaged our new arena that the so called left who supposedly hate rich people were happy to grant to a very rich man and many rich athletes?
commented 2017-08-23 01:14:35 -0400
David White you are right to an extent , but it was never like this before. I actually would never defend this city anymore.

Edmonton is intent from isolating itself politically and culturally from Alberta.

What is happening in Edmonton is no different from what is happening in many other major cities in Canada. Diversity is about moving on group into a city and pushing another group out. White-flight, the driving of predominately White people out of urban areas, and replacing them with New Canadians, is the primary means by which Progressivist-Sodomites hope to win electoral control of urban areas. There are more constituencies in urban areas, so pack the migrants into the cities and turn them into ghettos, while the voters who oppose the Progressivist-Sodomites are driven into rural areas, where there are fewer constituencies. With the coming gerrymandering that’s coming, rural ridings will be reduced, while migrate-packed urban ghettos are sliced up to ever more constituencies that the Progressivist-Sodomites can win.

This is the reason why there is a push to create more sanctuary cities.

War is coming.

Be ready.

Did quite a bit of driving around Edmonton today. Saw a lot of diversity, inclusivity and some new bicycles lanes too. Yippee. Been arguing lately on facebook with some Edmonton gay pride trolls, a few anarchy communists and some young indigenous people. They are a demanding bunch and like to attack as a group. The local newpaper rags are getting more political and are taking hard potshots at the white supremacists aka any conservative. Local global channel last Sunday did a small report on the Rebel, Ezra Levant and Goldy Faith. That one made me chuckle. Am pissed off with Brian Lilley. He should know by now how to bow out gracefully and keep his yap shut instead of slagging the rebel. I think he is already regretting his decision to drag out the dirty laundry. Bring back Faith Goldy.
I stand with the Rebel since day one.

MRS. RURAL REBEL…I too am on the periphery, but have many friends and relatives in Edmonton, so it is painful. I dread if they do this. And they will gloat and pose, and I will piss and moan, and the city will fill up with illegals.As Canada follows Europe, Edmonton follows Montreal. The politicians are truly stupid, or something more sinister is at play. Read DEB GRAUPNER’S last post if you want to know how she feels.

Proud…..Don’t be too sure…once these illegals get a taste of free money and stuff, you’ll never get rid of them..

Screw the people who pay the taxes and built the country. They’re just slaves in the new world order.

What has happened on October 19, 2015 was a coup d’etat without a coup d’etat.

This is how they will set-up a lawless society, and the only laws applied will be sharia law. The UN agenda is being implemented at break neck speed.

DAVID WHITE – Must be tough being a conservative in a government town. I agree to everything you say, but being rural and not living in specific city or town makes ALL of Alberta my backyard (and frontyard). I am ALBERTAN above all else. Even Texas has Austin.

Not to worry fellow deplorables, once these illegals get a taste of Edmonton winters they will be gone.

We should start hiring Private Investigators to start following our elected officials around. They should also have their bank accounts audited annually, and that of their spouses, since they are benefiting from their spouses political position. We need to expose the mass corruption going on in politics. Because it is apparent that they no longer work for the people, whose tax money they grab at every opportunity, and do what they bloody well want with it.

and DAN M…the globalist agenda is in full swing. The “working” holidays with Baby Doc flitting about with the Clintons and Soros, and Soros, McCallum and Trudeau just before Christmas, and the Christmas Aga Khan rendezvous, all point to the UN Globalist take over.

If Andrew keeps meeting with the CBC, MacLeans and Chatelaine for their insightful and quality reporting Trudeau is in for another four years. God help Canada.

Please guys…enough of the Edmonton and Alberta bashing and questioning our intelligence. Edmonton always was a liberal leaning town, at least from the 50s on. Now add the influx of Easterners who came over the years to suckle on the Alberta teat, many of whom were liberal/ndp, and worse, the civil servant bonanza courtesy of the communist mistake made by I believe under 40% voter support. There are plenty of good conservatives in Edmonton anguishing in pain just like the rest of us, just not enough. Rural Alberta is still staunch conservative. Of course none of it could proceed without the sjw mayor and a bevy of lefties around him, I can see the virtue posing and preening now, probably a photo op on one of the many useless bike lanes, with a gal in a complete body bag cruising by on a bicycle in the back ground for added effect. Sohi and the other lib MP will likely force their way in front of the camera, why wouldn’t they? Out of the south comes a faint voice, why it’s Nenshi, begging for votes and announcing his sjw agenda. And wafting over the Rockies with the BC smoke is the unmistakable voice of Gregor the green slime, screaming for them to shut down Kinder Morgan.

MRS. RURAL REBEL….So you are content if it is not in your back yard. If push does come to shove we can expect you not to be there for the rest of us . If it ends up in your front yard, should we be there for you? As conservatives, we should at least try and support each other. I’m not happy with Edmonton either, driving down town sometimes has the feel of say, Mogadishu, but that’s the way it is. Let us try and collectively stop this next wave of insanity….sanctuary city, next with the dippers will be sanctuary province.

Trudeau is irresponsible and wreckless.
Worse, Edmonton city council are fools for not being able to envision the consequences after seeing what’s happening in Quebec and Montreal.
But I’m just an irregular guy, what the hell do I know.

More proof that Canada is becoming that much larger of a cesspool.

War is coming.

Between Alinsky’s ‘Rules for Radicals’ and the Cloward/Piven strategy of overwhelming the system to crash it, I’d say the Globalists are movin’ right along in their plans to bring Canada down.
As one of the disenfranchised rural minority, I say it’s time to build walls around these urban centers and their illegal sanctuary city BS, where all the lefty/liberals are anyway, to keep them and their pinko – Globalist BS locked in their toxic, smelly rabbit warrens!
We can renegotiate food and water rates later…look how easy it was to shut down and isolate the Vancouver/Fraser Valley urban center with a bit of fire or flood…

Just remember what happened to the heroic and elected Sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona, Joe Arpaio…

No more referring to these “new Liberal voters” as undocumented asylum-seekers and illegal refugees. The official Liberalize term according to Crime Minister Trudeau is , “irregular immigrants”.
