On Friday night, Donald Trump signed an executive order limiting immigration to the United States for 90 days. This was immediately called a Muslim ban by Democrats and the media.
But the order doesn’t mention Muslims. It simply singles out seven countries that could be called failed states, or are in the middle of a civil war.
What’s really shocking is that people could travel from those places to America, or to Canada, until now.
I’m not upset that some foreign nationals were inconvenienced for a few hours. Since 9/11, I’ve been inconvenienced, wasting hours in lines that I didn’t have to, before terrorists from foreign countries screwed up our airports.
By the way: Barack Obama had similar bans from similarly terrorist-infested countries. All sorts of policies that were fine to the media under Obama are now outrageous to the media under Trump.
So that was the weekend. Then last night, a horrific attack on a mosque in Quebec City. Six dead, 19 injured: The worst terrorist attack in Canada since the Air India disaster.
The story is still developing. We’ve sent Faith Goldy to the scene to cover the attack.
She is assigned to follow the facts, wherever they lead. I know she’ll ask questions the government boys as the CBC won’t — or won’t be allowed to.
As the story develops, you can watch all her videos at QuebecTerror.com.
Anyway: Trudeau’s Canada and Trump’s America are heading in different directions on the issue of Islam, radicalism and immigration. I just hope the body count doesn’t grow...
TONIGHT'S GUESTS: Lorne Gunter says Trudeau's "sunny ways" aren't helping the economy, or other pressing matters like First Nations issues.
THEN: Sun columnist Lorrie Goldstein and I talk about Premier Wynne's veto on toll roads, and where the Liberals' reelection chances stand right now.
