SHOCK! Harper was right: Many in Syrian refugee camps don’t want to come to Canada

Brian LilleyArchive

You know how Canadians aren’t really in a mad rush to accept a high number of refugees in a short period of time?

Well, as some of us learned at a technical briefing held in Ottawa by government officials Wednesday morning, neither are a lot of those refugees in a rush to come to Canada.

Turns out, a lot of people want to go home when the war is over.

The 271 Syrian refugees that have arrived since November 4th when the new government took power, were people whose applications were already in process, and then there are the other 9,090 people in process that aren’t here yet. That’s right - ones that the mean old Harper government were working on bringing in. Conservatives focused their efforts on private sponsorships so that would be mainly people with family in Canada who have connections to our country.

Many of the others simply don’t want to come. They don’t hate Canada per se, it’s just that they’d rather go home and that’s why they prefer to stay in refugee camps in Turkey so they’ll be close to home when the war is over.

Funny, that was a point that Stephen Harper made during the election campaign. He quoted people he had spoken to who said that Canada could help by helping those on the ground that didn’t want to leave. For that he was described as uncaring.

This refugee rush has been a white liberal guilt exercise from the beginning - driven by partisan politics and the heartbreaking picture of a dead toddler shared generously by the main-stream media along with the false story that his family had been rejected by Canada.

The Liberals promised 25,000 refugees, a number which has now grown with Immigration Minister John McCallum saying we’ll likely take in close to 50,000 by the end of 2016 but so far, just 1,800 of 41,000 contacted even expressed an interest.

It looks like the hesitancy of Canadians to take part in the refugee rush is matched by the hesitancy of Syrians who don’t seem to want to be part of it either.

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

I pretty much expected that no self respecting refugee would want to be put up in substandard housing that wasn’t fit for Canadian Forces personnel, even if it’s free to them! The refugees want inner city high class housing and/or apartments so they can take advantage of all the luxury facilities that no other Canadian can afford! Most of them won’t speak English, or even French, so there is little chance of them fitting in and finding work, so they will need to have comfortable domicile so they don’t get bored sitting around all day plotting against the natives!

Yannie playing the race card? YAAAAWN! Sorry it means nothing.

Good they can stay out of our beautiful country. Our people should be focused on our VETS and homeless issues other than taking on other countries effing problem. Stay in your own country then fine with me.

no surprise. there’s a lot of us “old stock” canadians that want nothing to do with this place these days either. there’s just a little too much stupid going on.

Personally, I’m happy if Syrians want to stay near or homeland. Harper’s approach was measured and realistic, but of course it lacked sensationalism which is what appeals to left wing voters far more than common sense. And what of Rick Hillier’s “informed” declaration that bringing 50,000 refugees by Christmas was “doable” as if Syrian refugees are the same as 50,000 war-brides. It’s funny how all such public declarations disappeared as if they were nothing more than convenient propaganda tools to make Harper’s government look somehow inept; as if indeed. (…and LOL at the race-baiting hand grenade thrown into the Comment fray—conservatives are getting bullet-proof to it, and it’s the predictable refuge of a lefty to use ‘racist’ to try to shame; newsflash—it only works on other lefties).

They just don’t know what’s good for them, whereas the Liberals always know what’s good for people, just ask them. So now what? The Liberals will hire goons to round up people, toss them onto planes headed halfway around the globe. Force these people to move to a place completely foreign to them, where they don’t speak the language, or know any of the customs or practices? All because some puffed up Liberal popinjay named Justin Trudeau thought the optics looked good at the time?

Out of millions of refugees, I’m sure there will be a lot more than 50k who are interested.
Obviously you are confused by facts. Out oft the 100,000+ vetted by the UN only 1800 expressed a mild interest in coming here. If your logic holds, you expect the new government to strong arm people to come here just to fulfill a campaign promise based on a fake news story. What kind of citizens will they be? Resentful of Canada and unhappy to be here.

So, the Syrian Refugees do not want to come to Canada! The only reason, that I can think of, for this decision. They have read about Trudeau. Smart people.

YANNIE ZNAYEW so anyone who doesnt agree with you is racist, you know you leftys use the term so much it no longer even means anything. oh ya and redneck hill billies , well yannie ill take a red neck so called racist hillbilly over a sniveling professional liberal victim any day of the week,
commented 2015-12-03 12:50:12 -0500
Of course Harper was right -the proper humanitarian response to the “Syrian refuge problem” (the real one not the Islamic economic invasion of Europe) would be to secure safe refuge and available shelter and food for them in areas close to their home – then to help resettle them and aid in rebuilding their critical infrastructure after the war – but then, Harper was not attempting to import a dependent voting block like the duplicitous left is.

Perhaps we are at the point where the Webster and Oxford Dictionaries will have to change the definition of "racist "to the following :
Racist- A person who deals with problems by applying reason, common sense and rational thought to create solutions ; a person who disagrees with a liberal.

You see, anyone who has a different approach or solution to a problem that is in disagreement with the general leftist opinion has to be called something, and racist is just one of the easiest monikers that can by applied.

they probably have heard of pm selfie and all the other libs in Canada. Don’t blame them for not wanting to come here. Next = PM offers generous $1 million each to refugees to meet quota.

YANNIE ZNAYEW commented 1 hour ago – perfect – you should leave too or drop dead. Canada doesn’t need locusts such as yourself.
commented 2015-12-03 10:10:59 -0500
This is funny. Maybe the Liberals will have to herd 25,000 into the country at gun point.
commented 2015-12-03 09:46:03 -0500
Yannie, there is no racism here. That is just what left wing likes to scream when anyone has a different opinion than theirs.

I bet you are not able to explain HOW wanting to help the people over in their home country rebuild their lives over there is racists.

Come on, Yannie, be mature enough to explain precisely how help them in their own country is racist.

Left wingers like to believe that their opinion is the only valid opinion. That is called “having a closed mind.”

And votes.

Given all the reactionary, racist hillbillies chiming in on this site, if I were a Syrian refugee, I wouldn’t want to come here, either!
commented 2015-12-03 09:27:34 -0500
What i take out of this , the refugees that do come here will not be happy, that means they won’t even try to fit in to our society, they will come with a chip on their shoulder and a rag on their head, those head rags represent defiance …We should be doing all we can to get them settled back in their country of origin, NOT bringing them here.
commented 2015-12-03 08:49:31 -0500
What is it with lefties that all they want to do is uproot people taking them away from their homes and families? Oh yeah, control!
commented 2015-12-03 08:44:02 -0500
Nathan, since you are so eager to have them come to Canada, we will send them to your home. You can support them. I am sure you won’t mind.

Today’s immigrants are informed – they have access to information via the internet. This is unlike any other time in history.

The truths of an immigrant’s destination are front and center. Canada’s immigrant reputation is terrible. An immigrant’s future in Canada is in government (because someone of their own ethnicity hired them) or low grade blue collar work.

Canada’s economy is over regulated and over taxed and the world now knows it. And with voters choosing more socialist governments, Canada’s economy will only get worse.
commented 2015-12-03 07:46:42 -0500
Many immigrants know what Canada is like for immigrants – if you are a professional coming to Canada, get ready to drive a cab or clean dishes in restaurants.

Syrians don’t want to come to Canada and live off minimum wage jobs. They want their homes back.

Coward Trudeau stands by and watches Syrian homes get destroyed only to open the door to enslave Syrians that really have no interest in Canada.

Trudeau and the liberals are really disgusting people. They thrive on selling heaven and delivering hell and they don’t limit themselves to just Canadians.
commented 2015-12-03 06:08:48 -0500
Brian Lilly gets it wrong again. If there are SOME Syrian refugees who don’t want to come to Canada it is because they are holding out for Germany which they see as more lucrative. Lets not kid ourselves. There will be NO SHORTAGE of refugees who will be willing to fill those 25,000 openings.

Lilly sings the praise of Stephen Harper but as Ezra reported the other night – Harper brought in over 500,000 MUSLIM immigrants to Canada during his term in office. Harper tried to outdo the Liberals in the vote whoring department but it BACKFIRED . In the last election ALL of the heavily South Asian ridings went Liberal.

All that the STUPID cuckservative Stephen Harper (and his closet-case 47 y/o “virgin” minister of immigration) achieved was it will be all that more difficult for a TRUE conservative to get elected in 4 years time as Trudeau floods Canada with MILLIONS of South Asians and Chinese who WILL vote Liberal in the next election even if they are not citizens!

Our DEMOCRACY in Canada has been STOLEN from us by the third world thanks to TRAITORS of ALL political stripes!

28 500 “Refugees” have mobile phones and cellular plans?

Do not forget the face book pages as well

All is not as the media and the gay boy pm would have you believe – and the average Canucklehead laps it all up as a nice thing to do to the poor people who are refugees.

There is money in refugees – and a lot of folks are going to get rich off of this – including many in the corrupt UN and the rapidly corrupting Canadian federal government
