Look at this CBC headline: "City may spend $20M more on settling rising number of refugees in local hotels”. And then: "Toronto considering extending contracts with hotels to house refugees until end of 2018".
Hotels! With maid service, room service. You couldn’t find a more expensive way to house people.
The CBC calls them “refugees,” even though they aren’t, but the Syrian civil war is ending anyway.
Syrians can go home now, to rebuild their own country. (In time to miss out on a Canadian winter, too.)
Imagine how much further that $20 million could go in the Middle East. Samaritans Purse, a reputable charity working in Iraq, can rebuild damaged homes for as little as US$2,500 each.
And more to the point:
If we’ve got $20 million to spend on homelessness in Toronto — why don’t we start with Torontonians? One study shows a homeless Canadian dies more often than once a week in Toronto.
But who cares? They’re not sexy and exciting and political. Syrian migrants are. And now U.S. fake refugees. And next it will be those Rohingya Muslims the Liberals are getting excited about bringing in from Burma.
It’s always someone else, anyone else, except for Canadians, isn’t it?
NEXT: Our favourite immigration and refugee lawyer Guidy Mamman talks about the questionnaire the RCMP was using to screen migrants, until the Trudeau Liberals forced them to stop.
THEN: The Washington, DC newspaper The Hill (which is hardly left-wing) reported today that the FBI has uncovered a Russian bribery plot implicating the Obama administration (in which Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State.)
Rebel contributor John Cardillo joins me to tease out the details of this scandal. So much for the left’s narrative about Trump’s ties to Putin…
FINALLY: Your messages to me, about last night's show, and Andrew Scheer's panicked reaction when asked about The Rebel!
