Liberals promising “radical” changes to Citizenship Act: Why don’t they want immigrants to integrate?

Brian LilleyArchive

Another day, another headline heralding the Liberals undoing something that the Harper government accomplished in the last ten years. 

This time it’s the Hill Times reporting that the Liberals are promising radical changes to the Citizenship Act.

Immigration Minister John McCallum and other MP’s are saying they’re going to do away with various aspects of the Act including the requirement for new citizens to speak either English or French as part of granting citizenship.

McCallum’s department doesn’t have time to respond to Access to Information Requests on the vitally important refugee file but apparently they do have time to perform a "dramatic overhaul" to the immigration system, and not in a good way.

It seems like the Liberals just can’t stand the idea that immigrants might come to Canada and integrate in some way.

And yet, integrating is the fastest and best way for immigrants to achieve success.

Many of these changes were welcomed by immigrants, like policies that cracked down on bogus immigration claims and those that encouraged new arrivals to become part of Canada.

Why Liberals would want to reverse these positive changes is hard to understand but I guess it comes down to a different worldview, one that isn’t better for Canada or immigrants.

Trudeau's Liberals MUST halt plans to bring in 25,000 Syrian refugees
until they can guarantee the safety of the Canadian people.

Given that they will still have to speak English well and follow Canadian laws or get in big trouble, I don’t see how “foreign” they will be able to remain once they arrive. It’s just all hot air.

Oh wait I see now where the liberals are going. They want those refugees to vote for them. They are planting the seeds of gratitude in their hearts. If the refugees get their PR now and if citizenship requirements do become easier, these newcomers will be citizens just in time for the next election. Of course, they want to be able to bring their families and friends as well, so they will most likely vote Liberal to keep the doors open… But that’s just a theory :)

Ask the natives what it is like to let the newcomers have their way.

This has been going on for generations. The first immigrants who arrive don’t acquire language skills, yet insist their children do. This has changed drastically in the last few years as governments have started to favour refugees over immigrants. The main difference is; immigrants want to come here for the opportunity to better their families situation, while the refugees choose to come here for the free stuff. Case in point, recently, Syrian refugees in Ottawa have turned down housing they deemed unsuitable. A legal immigrant would say thank you and grab the brass ring they were offered and prosper.

Trudy the traitor is setting up his no-go zones on our military bases. He is a disgusting piece of human excrement.
commented 2016-02-09 12:57:00 -0500
The way liberals are going I foresee this country tearing apart, with no integration policy in place for new immigrants, each newcomer will stick to their own people staying in their own enclaves like Surrey & Richmond in BC or Mississauga & Scarborough in Ontario. Majority of the people already living in such ethnic zones barely speak any English or French, nor have any interest in preserving its culture or upholding its values. In few years time those enclaves will be no-go-zones for people from other cultures, then they would like to be governed by their own laws like sharia-law has been imposed in mohammedan dominated areas in Europe.
With Turdo Liberals in power I don’t see Canada as a nation has much in future.

Rebelation commented -“Trudeau and fellow Lefty’s say we won’t have the same problems as Europe because we do better at integrating.”

I invite our sheltered PM to frequent an after hours restaurant or bar in the Jane Finch area of GTA and watch the integration process in action.

That’s easy to solve. All the French-speaking ones will go to Quebec, all the rest will go everywhere else. Quebec always gets it’s way at our expense

If you ghetto-ize people and grind them into hopeless dust, and then offer them some hope, they are your’s for the taking, as voters. Eastern Canadians being a prime example.

If they don’t speak English, they will have harder lives and will be more likely to require the help of the welfare state, and thusly will be more likely to vote liberal
commented 2016-02-09 11:11:11 -0500
Fantastic! You know where sloppy immigration policy won’t wash? In Quebec. This is the province which wanted its own immigration system because Harper’s was not stringent enough. I can guaran-damn-tee you Quebec will not accept non French speaking immigrants – hear that? That’s Liberal support going down the flusher in Quebec.

Like I said ZULU good one ,but you know that territory,I floated by steveston a time or two on a not so famous gill netter —the"witch hazel" in the early mid sixties , and I can almost assure you that some of police that pulled out the body were wearing Trudeau tee shirts as well and Trudeau printed panties.

Sean Penson is simply a paid troll under a false moniker sent here to provoke and disrupt. Track back the IP address to find out who this agitator really is! Jimmy duh Silva, Gordo Steele, etc, etc, etc…???

Sean Penson the brain dead idiot said, “It’s nice having an undefeatable governing party in charge”

So you do not like democracy. What if this “undefeatable” party starts doing things you do not like? Damn, Sean, you are so gawd damn fucking stupid!
commented 2016-02-09 07:35:14 -0500
Yvette Mozol asked, “What is Trudeau et al trying to accomplish here with this change?”

In my opinion all they are trying to do is undo everything Harper did so as to appeal to their deranged low intelligence “hate Harper” supporters … like Sean Penson, as one example.

Turn your back on Trudeau. If you don’t agree with this insanity, if you are in proximity to him, turn your back on the traitor and his MPs. It was good enough for NYPD, it’s good enough for us. Call your MP and tell them you don’t support this traitorous government. If Canadians don’t shake off the polite real damn quick, we are going to have Islam shoved down our throats. Enough, our women have worked too damn hard to have their freedoms curtailed because of globalist ambitions to dissolve borders.

Marty. We can only expect so much from Ezra. He’s only one man. At some point, one has to take up the cause themselves. You know my view, Trudeau and these premiers are in Breach of Trust. You can lay a private charge or commence civil action, or both. If you don’t know how, you can actually find all the info on line. You can ask Ezra for my email and I’ll tell you what I can.

I wish Ezra took legal action regarding the reporters being kicked out too. I also thought it would garner him some headlines, some promo for this site. I’ll assume he has his reasons for not doing so. But you can encourage the reporters themselves to take action.
commented 2016-02-09 01:56:26 -0500
YVETTE MOZOL, I have suggested this kind of action in the past.
In fact I sent Ezra an email stating the same action against the Notley fiasco after it was reported that two of the Rebel reporters were thrown out of a government meeting.
But, nothing comes of it, no one steps up and says YES lets get a lawsuit started, or no it won’t work because………..
I am not a lawyer and do not know what is required or if such a thing is even feasible. But I am tired of all the complaining and constant exposure to the many laws that the Liberals break, the blatant disregard that Trudeau and Notley and Wynne have for the citizens of Canada, Alberta, Ontario etc.
Trudeau is putting every Canadian in grave danger and refuses to to back down.
If we can just do this in some way we will be sending a huge message to ALL governments.
I am so frustrated and angered by this jerk we have as a PM, I can’t stand looking at his face or listening to his stammering drama teacher condescending voice.

Andrew. Thanks for the link.

Trudeau and fellow Lefty’s say we won’t have the same problems as Europe because we do better at integrating. Trudeau has stated the Boston bombers felt marginalized. How does NOT learning the language help them integrate or not feel marginalized?

Lefty’s are psychotic. That’s why they constantly contradict themselves as Trudeau has just done. Or, as I like to say, Lefty’s are just walking bags of contradiction!!

Sent to me by a colleague who lives in Sydney Australia:

The RCMP reported finding a man’s body in Steveston, near the mouth of the Fraser River.

The dead man’s name will not be released until his family has been notified.

The victim apparently drowned due to excessive beer consumption.

He was wearing black fishnet stockings, a red garter belt, a pink G-string, a strap-on dildo, purple lipstick, a ‘Trudeau for PM’ T-shirt, and ……. a cucumber stuck in his rectum.

The police removed the Trudeau T-shirt to spare his family any unnecessary embarrassment.

Any thing that makes his Muslim friends happy. What an effing idiot.

Justin, you are new at this game you are playing, take a lesson from the UK.

The UK are deporting all Migrants that refuse to learn English.

Learn Justin, learn, I know that is hard for you, but please try.

In other words they will ask if you will vote for the libs, if you say yes you get in and get free stuff, if you say no, then you do not get in.

“Why Liberals would want to reverse these positive changes is hard to understand but I guess it comes down to a different worldview, one that isn’t better for Canada or immigrants.”
Understanding leftists is not that hard once you crack the code.
“Liberalism is a mental disorder caused by a psychological need to remove all moral judgment from the world to create a sort of communistic, morally stoic society where no thing is either right or wrong, thinking this will eliminate all of the world’s problems. But such thinking creates in itself an immoral, evil philosophy that causes only increasing ills and evil in the world. Liberalism is caused by seeking to have a world that is void of the moral absolutes created by God and the belief that man can create a good world based upon his own efforts. Unfortunately for liberals, history demonstrates man has no ability to do such a thing because of the evil in his heart.”

How can they read the guide book, learn anything about our nation or take the citizenship oath if they don’t understand a word of either language. Or is the citizenship exam going to be optional too?
