Remember how often we heard that the new Trudeau Liberal government was going to be open and transparent because Canadians have a right to know how their government operates and what it spends money on?
The Liberals characterized the Conservatives as secretive, promising they would be different, but it didn’t take long before we knew this was untrue on both counts. Now comes another story about Liberal secrecy and their reluctance to reveal who’s supplying refugee “welcome” kits due to “security concerns”.
Security concerns for Syrian refugees or for those supplying parkas and tuques? Who knows, though we do know they’re not concerned about the security of Canadians because they’ve told us repeatedly that we shouldn’t worry about that.
So, do they think parka makers or importers will be targeted by ISIS followers or is it that they don’t trust ordinary Canadians not to attack those who are helping refugees? If so, that’s pretty insulting.
Well, it isn’t the security of Canadians they’re concerned about. Just last week an immigration official, in response to a question on refugee screening, essentially said that we should just accept that everyone who shows up is a bona fide refugee – we should trust them, not screen them. But this same department doesn’t trust Canadians enough to tell us who is supplying the government with the winter gear they will be handing out? It is ridiculous.
This government also refuses to say how many of the refugees are from religious and ethnic minorities. They say they don’t know, don’t track this information and only seek to help the most vulnerable. I call BS. The most vulnerable are the religious and ethnic minorities being targeted by ISIS for their ethnic or religious status. They know but just don’t want to tell us because they don’t want news stories about how many are Christians, how many are Muslims and how many are minority Muslims.
Earlier this year numbers on this very question were provided to the media but that was under the old government - the secretive Conservatives.
Now under the “open” Liberals we’re told we shouldn’t even ask.
They know but they don’t want you to know.
Welcome to the new era of Glasnost promised by Justin Trudeau where the reality is that he wants to keep us all in the dark.
