Australian politicians think about shipping unwanted migrants to Canada

Brian LilleyArchive

Canada was well known for our generosity in re-settling refugees, long before Justin Trudeau became Prime Minister and brought in 25,000 "Syrian refugees" as quickly as possible.

Due to its location, Australia has been an arrival point for those claiming to be refugees but who are actually economic migrants. A few years ago, it got so bad they set up camps to house migrants who managed to land in their makeshift boats on islands well outside Australian territory.

With stories coming out recently about the deplorable conditions in these camps, the pressure is on for politicians to do something. They don’t want these migrants in Australia, and they don’t want them sent back home, either, so they’re discussing sending them elsewhere.

As a result of Justin’s well publicized vanity project with Syrian refugees, some Australian politicians are saying, let’s send our refugee problem to Canada. They’ll take them!

Here’s what Labour MP Anthony Albanese had to say about it:

“There are a range of countries that are possibilities. Canada, for example, is an obvious one.”

A few short years ago, Canada took a position of protecting our borders, sending a message that it would not be worth the risk for migrants to set out on dangerous journeys to our shores because they would not find the life that they wanted here.

If Justin Trudeau turns around now and tells Australia we’ll take those refugees off their hands, Canada will become a target again.

Is this another disturbing example of what Justin means when he says, “Canada’s back”. We’ll soon find out.

The Australians want to revise history by turning Canada into the penal colony. Brilliant!

So even a left wing party in Australia has more sense than Canadian leadership. I just love the pattern here. Elitist leadership like Merkel and Trudeau, safe in their gated communities are happy to welcome more fake refugees. Merkel goes as far as to punish small towns by housing them there, hence keeping them out of the big “important” cities.

David — apologies on my oversight. But I really think throwing in those extras would constitute crimes against humanity.

We have a new class of migrant – the entitlement migrant which is someone who goes globe trotting looking for the fattest public teat.

" send them to Canada " is not an extraordinary suggestion …if one is looking for a solution to the migration flood ; what is extraordinary , limp and much to be expected is that the weak minded, spineless, sheep that heads this country will take umpteen selfies of him greeting them as a" fait accompli " , no questions asked, no deliberation, response !!

Regan asked, "what makes them think they are wanted here. "

Probably our limp wristed PM and his excitement about importing so many refugees is my guess.

Can’t say I blame Australia for thinking that way. If they were not a big island, they would probably build a wall.

Refugees with cell phones like the one in the blue outfit on the right hand side of the photo & no hijab wearing women in that boat either, my my, that’s ertainly not gender equality

Notice that the idea came from a Labour MP? Why not send them back from whence they came? We didn’t create these Muslim hell-holes. The Muslims did. Let them bask in the glory of Islam.

Only if we can give them Trudeau, Sophie, their kids, every one of his living relatives out to third cousins twice removed, David Suzuki and Peter Mansbridge in return.

(Oh and John McCallum, so he can experience first hand how other countries do not gold plate refugee / immigrant programs).

When the rest of us vote to have Quebec separate, on its way out wonder if we can send some of our riffraff with it. Some great examples come to mind, nutley and Company, wind and Company, I’m sure if we put our heads together we can come up with many other deserving people.

Hey! You Aussie Bastards, Man made global warming is a myth. So incinerate your own garbage, Canada dose not need it. lol.

Too funny, glad to see you haven’t deserted us.

“Well if the rest of Canada separates from Quebec they would be stuck with him and we could have another election.Just imagine the freedom.”

I love it, what a grand idea.

If they can make the long trip to Canada , they can make the long trip back to where they came from. I don’t care if their country’s a mess – It’s not our fault . Every time a refugee faces being deported they say the same line " I was a member of the opposition and I will be killed if I am sent back" – Don’t care – it’s probably BS anyways.

Let me get this straight – a country where getting drunk before noon is a national pastime and “making a shambles” is a required course in public school has standards high enough to reject migrants – whoa buddy we don’t want anything to do with the scum an Aussi would not associate with.

“I think it is time for the rest of Canada to have a referendum on wether or not we want Quebec in Canada. If we kick Quebec out there goes Justin’s riding….Quebec will then have to sustain Justin’s nice guy policies all by itself. "

Wynnie was backing Junior during the election, also many of the third party interests have head offices in Ontario. I say make Ontario a country unto itself. Quebec and the east coast will fall in line quickly after that if they want transfer payments from the west.

Re sean penson: Please don’t respond to that asshole’s idiot comments. Just ignore everything it posts…………..

Good thinking, send them to Canada. That’s about as far from Australia as you can get.
That settles it, I am enrolling in an Australian As A Second Language course.

Return to sender! Or send them to Saudi Arabia, or Iran, or any Muslim country, or what about that great terrorist hell hole, the UN. Let them take care of their own.

We’ll send them directly over to your house, Sean, where you can house and cloth them. You owe it to Canadians (and the people on this website) for your stupid comments.

Architect . . . the only part of Canada that could “Survive” nicely on it’s own is the WEST !
Everything from the Manitoba Ontar-i-owe border is already done !

Of course, Justin will take them, more votes.

@ Glenn Craig

I’ve been saying for some time that it’s time for Canada to searate from Quebec AND Ontario.
commented 2016-06-07 14:30:54 -0400
So if the Aussies do not want them, why should we take the?

Just more people to suck up the welfare dollars.

How much more can we afford – and not only in dollars but in social cost?
