BREAKING: Syrian refugee numbers could be as high as 50,000 in evolving Liberal plan

Brian LilleyArchive

The Liberals have made another announcement (revision?) on the refugee plan for Syrian refugees. 

At a government conference between Federal and Provincial Ministers, they’ve announced the number could be as high as 50,000.

Once again, the details are scant including on the question of whether or not there would be any screening for ideology.

The only thing that is clear through all these changes on the refugee plan is that the government’s plan is fluid so if you’re confused, at least know you’re not alone. It seems like the Liberals are too.

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

Andy, it was another commentator who said we should give priority to aboriginal education right now.
I think as a nation our priority is to help the refugees. They are in immediate need and we should do what we can.

Jay Kelly… May I suggest… There would not be as many cases of “unequal levels of education funding” on reserves in Canada if some chiefs stopped “paving their driveways” over and over again!…

Young Justin Flipper Flopper jumped out of bed,
Out of the sand, he cocked his head,
Crying, “John, John! You old goose be gone,
For the terrorists are on the rise-o, rise-o, rise-o!”
Crying, “John, John! You old goose be gone,
For the terrorists are on the rise-o!”

McCallum ran for Parliament Hill
And hid in a closet, nice and still,
And the terrorists said, “We’d better hurry with our kill
Or they’ll soon be on our trail-o, trail-o, trail-o.”
And the terrorists said, “We’d better hurry with our kill
Or they’ll soon be on our trail-o!”

Makes a mighty fine ditty, doesn’t it?

Stand up for the real Canada. The one that lends a helping hand to refugees who cannot find a home after being displaced by war.

50k is only the beginning. I know govt employees are being offered “Permanent” positions at the airport in Toronto just to process “refugees”. Yes, that said “PERMANENT” 50k is the start of the end of this fine country!

Without meaning to be disrespectful to an elderly person with a sickness – even a Liberal – I Googled ‘Is John McCallum a drunk’ – because he sounds like he’s three sheets to the wind half the time.
WOW! What a response…
Mr. McCallum, call this number – 613-237-6000 in Ottawa, or this number in Toronto – 416-487-5591 (it’s AA).
You can get help for your sickness.
The first step, is admitting you are powerless over your disease…’
Just say it, ‘My name is John M, and I am an alcoholic…’
You owe it to Canada – given your important position of power and responsibility in the government, and you owe it to your family and friends. But most important, you owe it to yourself…

This would be more honest if it read 50.000 potential Terrorist’s. I bet the Libbers will make entry in to Canada, conditional that they have to vote Liberal, come the next election.
To hell with the Country, just as long as I stay in power, Eh Justin.

Randall Jorundson is concerned about kids on reserves in Canada. There are lots of ways he can get involved in that including calling the government to account on unequal levels of education funding.
Being compassionate to those abroad does not lessen the need to be compassionate to those already here.

Dr.Ben Carson went over to see for himself what was going on, and he like many others say the displaced peoples of Syria don’t even want to come here. The reality is that by avoiding armed conflict over in the Mideast , we are going to be bringing the armed combat within our own borders. In the end analysis , it is impossible to integrate and assimilate these people and the people themselves will end up trapped in the modern day equivalent of the reserves that were created for the Indians. The policy has failed before it has started. But the Liberals don’t care about process or results, they care about how much “amazing grace” they receive for their limitless compassion. Compassion can only be a virtue when it is tempered with common sense and prudence. Of course , conservatives will be painted as racists for questioning the wisdom of this program. It does make me wonder how members of the Ministry of Indoctrination at the CBC would react if their taxpayer funded budget was cut to pay for the regugees?

I was wondering why they would put this old geezer in charge, and I think it’s because he is old and near death, and once he’s dead and gone, they will continually tag him for being at fault. He will be their scapegoat in death!

Very disappointing. Not against immigration but am against a government that takes our security lightly. Should even one migrant commit an act our terrorism on Canadian soil this government should fall immediately. I have no faith in a government concerned more about optics than the citizens that pay their salaries. We have Canadians living in the streets and yet this government is more concerned about foreigners and their struggles. Once again we have a liberal government that lacks of ethics and has disdain for their own citizens. 61% said no to the Trudeau plan. Another lie about how this government was changing how things operate in Ottawa. Our opinions don’t matter once elected. Same old entitled Liberals. Loves every other kid not on Canadian soil and ignores those on our streets or reserves. Typical Liberal BS. All talk and optic of do gooders with no substance. Wait that’s what was elected a moronic empty shirt with no substance. Pathetic

Just what the muslims were looking for a country with a French PM. and a drunk immigration minister.

One thing the left wing trolls fail to see is that their way of life has made it so that Chinese will be the majority in about 15 years, and they are not big fans of communism or terrorists. It may actually be better when they have the majority voting power. They are not afraid of the race card or any other liberal BS.

I wonder when we will kick all our soldiers out of their homes for these phony refugees? I hope if Justin ever needs a rescue of some sort the soldiers take that much longer to show up since they are scattered about and not where they should be.

Send them all to Baffin Island.

Richard Menguzzi asks “after all the vetting… how many were refused entry” ? Let’s see, if 24,000 were accepted from Lebanon where there are currently about one million refugees, that would leave about 976,000 refused entry.

Sean Penson commented – "We should easily take in one million refugees! We have the space, and we need the labour! Is the environment where you keep your head dark, moist and stinky? Pull it outta there and read the unemployment figures. Fool!

Same like the nannies being paid for by the taxpayer. Pastor Trudeau wants us also to pay for his personal pet refugee “charity”. This does irritate me. Does he have a place in his heart for a refugee family in one of his many spare bedrooms ? – like he is urging all Canadians to do. Of course he does, …No, he does not ? Really ? ….why then is he telling me to do it ?? ..because he is a perfect hypocrite !!

Canada is becoming an insane asylum regarding all these immigrants destined by Trudeau & McCallum to set foot on our soil. So much for transparency Trudeau, all of a sudden it’s not 25,000, but 50,000 & MacCallum has no problem throwing that in our face like it’s no big deal. Well it is a big big deal & are we just to stand there & say or do nothing, while they have barely been in power & already we have a good idea of what we are in store for. Ben Carson who has just visited the Syrian refugees says they want to stay in their own country. Like people with common sense are saying, why not establish safe zones for them in surroundings familiar to them & the West can all assist with humanitarian aid. In Mb they say they’re prepared to receive 2500-3000 yet they are asking residents to help by offering lodging. Every charitable agency is crying out for donations to help the homeless, the poor. etc & thank goodness for the generosity of Manitobans & the rest of Canadians in their own provinces, because the Feds are too busy helping people who may or may not be refugees & further bleed Canada. This is not going to turn out well, remember, immigrate to non Muslim countries, don’t assimilate & slowly we will take over.

Hey Bravo Zulu, that’s chump change in the “war on climate change”. We’ll just borrow more when we run out. Maybe the World Bank will cut Canada a deal if we just submit to the will of the UN, there’s some big money to be made here, just not by the average Joe, who gets to pay, and pay, and then pay some more. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Pa Kettle was trying to figure out what the new-fangled electronic device on top of his well was for, the one with the “Please send payment to your nearest NDP representative. Love, Rachel Notley”.

Following Muhammad’s example, Islam divides the world into two spheres: the House of Peace (Dar al-Salaam) – areas that Muslims control, and the House of War (Dar al-Harb) – areas that Muslims don’t yet control. Question: In which house does Canada fall?
I have heard someone succinctly explain the Muslim staged-Jihad strategy for taking over a country they don’t control (House of War – Dar al-Harb) in these three words: Emigrate, Increase, Eliminate.

Why would we make such a huge expensive with so many unknown future ramifications?
We should take care of our own first.
A gallon of milk is $10 plus on many of northern communities
We have people living under the Gardnier Express Way
Unemployment rate around 8%
CPP in need if overhauling and cash infusion
Our Health care system far over burden at present.
And he is going to bring in thousands of unemployable or under employable people likely on need of health care and on top of all if that by the virtues of their religious doctrine hates us and everything we stand for.
WTF !!

After all the vetting is done, I am very interested in seeing the statistics of how many were refused entry.
