Almost immediately after news broke that a Syrian migrant named Ibrahim Ali had been charged with the murder of Burnaby school girl Marrisa Shen, the mainstream media started to protect the Liberal’s refugee agenda.
The Toronto Star and the CBC churned out a series of articles doing their best to make Canadians forget the real victims by searching out Syrian migrants who feared a backlash from the Canadian public.
Yes, the Syrian community is upset, but we all are and have a right to be. Canadians want to know why the government doesn’t require police background checks for Syrian refugees and why we don’t know anything about Ali before he arrived in our country.
But instead, the mainstream media is trying to extinguish the conversation before it begins with allegations and insinuations of bigotry.
Today, I’ll show you what I found in exclusive access to information documents that provide an explanation for the uniformity in the mainstream media coverage.
Canada’s immigration system is backlogged with an influx of asylum-seekers, a fact Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen accidentally admitted in a leaked email that became public earlier this year.
But this government, before hiring more CBSA and IRCC staff to screen refugees and economic migrants for security risks, was instead on a manhunt for laid off journalists who could act as propagandists for Operation Syrian Refugee.
By placing the focus on public perception rather than on comprehensive security screening, it’s almost like this whole thing was a photo op for the government rather than an exercise in charity and generosity which would rescue people who needed help.
