SHOCKING response from government after access to information request on Syrian refugees

Brian LilleyArchive

A shocking response from the government on an access to information request about Syrian refugees leads me to ask: is the government playing games with our safety or games with the media?

The Rebel has been at the forefront of the push to find out what’s really happening with Syrian refugees but we just keep ending up with more questions than answers.

We’ve been assured time and again that there’s no need for concern on the refugee file on the question of security because the government takes this issue very seriously. Both Ralph Goodale and John McCallum told us this early on.

We’ve been promised that the government collects bio-metric data on these refugees, conducts extensive screenings, asks tough questions.

We wanted to know more so we submitted an access to information request asking about the questionnaire. The response was shocking. It said there is no form and no questionnaire.

But, there has to be a form, a questionnaire or something because we know how the government operates and because top bureaucrats from the department told us so.

Recall my question to McCallum about why the government doesn't track ethnic and religious minorities fleeing persecution in Syria. McCallum's answer was weak but what I couldn't show you was that in the background briefing with department officials, one that we can’t broadcast but can quote, a top department official told me that they simply cannot track religious or ethnic minorities fleeing persecution because their system has no place to put that information.

Doesn’t that mean they use specific data entry fields yet they say there isn't one?

So what’s going on here? Are they lying to us? Playing word games? Is it a form and not a questionnaire? Do they think they can get away with that?

What are they trying to hide?

We don’t know yet but one way or another, we’ll get to the bottom of this and find the answers because we believe Canadians deserve to know how this highly political and sensitive file is being handled.

If you appreciate the work that we do, please consider making a donation. Even a small one would help. We submit a lot of access to information requests which cost us about $5,000 per month. If you can support us in this in any way, we would appreciate it.

Maybe they just couldn’t find the form because it wasn’t in the database yet.

Unemployment Rate around 7-8%
CPP in need of overhaul if not huge cash injection
Health Care system stressed to limit
And our leader (who is nothing more than a second generation Hippie) is paying through the nose (with tax payers $) to bring in unemployable or under-employable High risk Health Care candidates who without paying one dime in into our Pension system but automatically will draw.
Now compounded that by the fact that these people’s religious ideologically/beliefs say we must be converted or destroyed …So tell me why again we are doing this??…And please make the case really compelling as I am the father of two daughters who could have very well fell victim such as the poor souls did recently in Germany

Brian, maybe it is a word game. The Canadian government is not screening refugees from their location in Syria. I am not sure where they are actually located but I think they are in Lebanon and Jordan. Your request specifically stated Syria.

One other note. The response you received was not signed by Audrey White (A/Director). During my years with the Department of National Defence this signature block should have contained the name of the person who actually signed. They may do things differently at Immigration Canada or it could be another little game they are playing.

I know it is frustrating for you. Thanks for your efforts as this could prove to be very important.

I wrote this ressponse previously to someone who voted for Green Party. It’s just as relevant here. for anywone who is willing to follow the links I’ve included, there might be something you can take away with you, about our Liberals.

Not much difference between Libs and Greens. Both endorse the same ideologies. Greens don’t hide behind a red shield. Both endorse One World Government, namely the U.N. I find the Greens to be highly socialist, and closer to communism than the Liberals. Conservatives are not completely free of the same ideologies, since Brian Mulroney was promoting similar change in Canada.

From the Green Party of Canada’s web site: ( http://www.greenparty.ca/en/party/values ), “Green Parties around the world share common values as expressed in the Charter of the Global Greens. The policies of the Green Party of Canada are based on six fundamental principles.”

From the Charter of the Global Greens: ( https://www.globalgreens.org/globalcharter ), “The Charter is the foundational Greens’ document. It draws upon the charters and constitutions of Green parties around the world, as well as some ideas from the Earth Charter and from the First Planetary Gathering of Greens at Rio in 1992.”

From Wikipedia, on Earth Charter: ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earth_Charter ), "The idea of the Earth Charter originated in 1968, by Maurice Strong and Mikhail Gorbachev as members of The Club of Rome, when the United Nations World Commission on Environment and Development called for a new charter to guide the transition to sustainable development. In 1992, the need for a charter was urged by then-Secretary General Boutros Boutros-Ghali at the Rio de Janeiro Earth Summit, but the time for such a declaration was not believed to be right. The Rio Declaration became the statement of the achievable consensus at that time. In 1994, Maurice Strong (Chairman of the Earth Summit) and Mikhail Gorbachev, working through organizations they each founded (the Earth Council and Green Cross International respectively), restarted the Earth Charter as a civil society initiative, with the help of the government of the Netherlands.2

That name, Maurice Strong, keep recurring in the last 45 years or so, and often in connection with Liberals and the Liberal Party. To gain some idea of who Maurice Strong was [he’s now deceased since Nov. 2015], look to Strong’s own web site ( http://www.mauricestrong.net/index.php/short-biography-mainmenu-6 ) It also helps to know how powerful the Power Corporation of Canada has become, and for how long. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Power_Corporation_of_Canada

Now let me remind you of a statement Justin Trudeau made, as reported in the Financial Post ( http://business.financialpost.com/fp-comment/china-justin-trudeau ): "Mr. Trudeau was asked at a Ladies’ Night function which nation’s administration he admired most outside of Canada. His response was “You know, there’s a level of admiration I actually have for China because their basic dictatorship is allowing them to actually turn their economyaround on a dime and say ‘we need to go green fastest … we need to start investing in solar.’” He used that word “dictatorship”, and I think that’s exactly what he meant. There was a strong connection between Strong, and China, and both Trudeau and Ontario’s Wynne, are both heading back to China in the near future.

Now, why does Justin want to change First Past the Post so badly? Does he have an unspoken agenda? Remember, the last Prime Minister to open the Constitution, was Pierre Trudeau. Justin has also said he wants to out-do his father. When challenged, he has proudly been quoted as saying, “Just watch me!”

How many Liberal voters know this background befoer they voted in the last election, and how many just voted emotionally, to promises they heard, without any understanding of the significance? Justin did say, if you remember, “Canadians want change.” What do you think he meant when you voted for change? And are the NDP and Greens free of their connections to One World Government?

At what point does Treason come into the picture?

just what the Country needed another Prime Minister from Quebec, schooled by Obama fixers like Larry Summers, adept at attracting the attention of the undecided low info voter…..and not following through with those promises

Well, I see this article also made it onto Bourque (www.bourque.org) – a decent news aggregation site.

Too bad the site owner is fairly rabid lib supporter.

You will seldom see anything there that has anything bad to say about the libs – so well done Brian.

“Lying is what Liberals do best.”

I remain undecided. Liberals (both federally and provincially) are indeed the greatest of liars in the political sphere but they also excel at conniving thievery. It’s hard to decide, based on so much evidence, which devious trait they have mastered more eloquently and thoroughly.

What happened to Trudy’s promise of a Transparent and Accountable government. It certainly seems that got tossed by the roadside in a hurry. Welcome to the Liberal Dictatorship, with lots more to follow. The Muslim Brigade will soon be policing the rest of us under Shariah Law. We are day by day becoming more Shariah compliant, certainly thanks in part to the likes of the CBC and others being not a news outlet but a strong Propaganda Machine for the Muslim Takeover. Political correctness, diversity, tolerance, multi-culturalism. These are things that will lead to our downfall, time is running out, it has already expired in Europe and that took less than a year. We are next ! Prepare.

Apparently, we now have Halal potatoes. How does one make a potato Halal ?

There is no throat to slit . No blood to drain . Maybe it is all about the money.

I swear before the Son of the Living GOD that John McCallum is one crazy demented old fool. Like I am ever so happy that Justin is going to bring in Muslims that feel it just might be their RIGHT to kill me and rape my daughters. This is not going to happen just because Justin and his Pussies deem it to be so.

Wayne Lovelace i think Justin is in the diminati , nothing bright about him.
commented 2016-01-07 00:03:35 -0500
This proves the Liberals are nothing but a big bunch of lying fools who make policy up on a whim and then wonder why they can’t deliver on their promises.

Justin was like a kid campaigning. If someone offered One million dollars for some cause he promised double. Like a schoolyard kid trying to out do the competition. Never once did they look at things from reality. Turn off brain, open mouth, put in foot. Fools the lot of them.

The more we get to know our new Liberal Gods the more apparent it is that they are evil. Forget Democracy, that is a thing of the past. Trudeau and his clan are controlled by Muslims, it was the Muslims that gave them their winning votes in the elections and it is the Muslims that guide them toward the destruction of Canada. Liberals do not have the intelligence to do this on their own, they are led, willingly, by our worst enemy, Islam.

What is happening to these, so called refugees, once they get off the airplane, do they go through Customs like normal travelers or are they whisked away to Hotels, paid for by us?
I doubt that they go through Customs, where would they hide their AK47s. How many of them are family groups and how many are single young males? Will the Trudeau crew answer that?

I can only conclude that we, Canadians, are right royally screwed. Thank You PM Trudeau.

Well from my studies and reading Elliot Trudeau was in the illuminati and so was Brian Mulroney so you can be sure that his son is all so in it as well and by what he is doing if you read up on it you will see that he is on the same track with what the illuminati is doing and wants to happen. If you know nothing about this, then you should really find out about it because it is now and it is real and is happening in our lifetime. You see what is going on in the USA it is happening world wide and as well to us in Canada. Do your homework and get into what is really going on with us on our planet.
Then you will have some real stories to tell everyone.

See what has happened in Cologne. Many of us sounded the warning, it will happen wherever they can gather in numbers. It is what they do, as they are emboldened by the lack of prosecution, the fear whites have of being labelled racists thanks to PC thinking, and the years of “don’t fight back” drummed into peoples heads. Time to arm themselves and never hesitate. The assaults are true, the robbery is not. Time to fight fire with fire in Germany if the government will not do anything.

Typical Liberal Government. They know better than us. We, the unwashed masses aren’t savvy enough, or refined enough to consider any decision that important. It’s beyond our comprehension to understand, so it’s not for us to see. LPC to Canadians: Shut up, we’re driving.
