Syrian refugees rely on food banks to survive. Is THIS the better life Trudeau promised?

Brian LilleyArchive

According to a number of news reports, many of the Syrian refugees Trudeau’s government rushed in to Canada are relying on food banks to survive and being denied the language training they need, to help them secure employment. 

This news won’t come as a surprise to those of us who have been following this vanity project of the Trudeau Liberals from the beginning.

Of course, many private agencies and charitable organizations are stepping in to try to assist. But, is this the better life that Trudeau proudly proclaimed Canadians wanted to give them?

The fact is, by rushing to meet the arbitrary deadline designed to make the Liberals look like they cared more than that crusty old Stephen Harper, the Liberals have actually put these people in a precarious position as we approach “month 13”, when social assistance from the government will be cut off.

Is there any denying that if the program had moved slower as was advised by many who saw this coming, the refugees and Canadian taxpayers would all have been better off?

Shame on Justin Trudeau and the vanity that propelled his refugee rush.

It makes one wonder if there is a genuine need for these refugees to go to food banks! Or perhaps these refugees are taking advantage of Canadian generosity to grab “free food” which they probably turn around and sell and make a profit!
As some have said, I no longer will donate to food banks or any other cause as I am not quite sure where my money will end up. And I definitely do not want it to end up in the pockets of people who do not need it. It is sad that this Liberal government has placed its citizens in such a position where they have to make a choice, where they have to curb their natural tendency to help those in strife, where they need to weigh the pros and cons of many decisions they are now making.
And all for the sake of vanity and narcissism. The “good old days” are indeed gone. We live is a much bitter and divided country now. And how long did it take?

“Patti Gardner, per your post. It is why our family does not give to food banks any longer. Trudeau brings them here for his glory and expects us to take care of them. For now on our family picks and chooses very selectively who we will support.”
Please don’t take this the wrong way, but when I read your post…my cringe was almost painful.
I completely understand why you feel that way and how you got there.
What you have so eloquently and honestly expressed is merely one aspect of the destruction of our country, our culture, our system of law, our moral principles and our way of life, by this Islamic invasion.
Our beautiful Canada and our Canadian people are being forced to change our Canadian ways in order to accommodate this Islamic invasion, aided and abetted by ‘the system’ and it’s One Worlder players!
This is how terrorism works, it is how stealth jihad is working.
Can you imagine saying that 10 years ago…

It might be a good strategy to donate only nutritious PORK products to all food banks.

Roy Jeanine: My glaring error. I was so distraught I had forgotten about “UBER” Nenshi, Ezzra’s old sparring partner. A lefty big mouth to be sure. ( Do they still have those money making community bikes in Calgary?) As for the flower child throw-back in Ottawa, he should have stuck to drama. He is actually very good at the soap opera/ reality tv/ social media/ political drama cesspool that we dwell in today. He in fact excels at it. As for three faced Nutbar, one hit wonder girl should book a moving van for the last day in her mandate, she, and most of her flock, will be gone.

Must be Liberal times again, new Canadians standing in food bank lines behind armed forces personnel.

David White – please note Calgary has had that insane muslim Nenshi as so-called mayor for over 7 years and make no mistake, he has ruined and bankruptEd the taxpayers.

So true. I have never seen such division amongst people since Trudeau was voted in with 39% of the vote. People are angry.

ANONYMOUS: When you said, “So now our poor people have to share the food banks with the refugees?” The sad thing is, many of the food banks are now empty because the people who donated to them are now unemployed as well. This is not going to end well.
commented 2016-05-07 07:48:29 -0400
Quite frankly I do not give a damn – send them back to where they came from.
commented 2016-05-07 02:22:41 -0400
So now our poor people have to share the food banks with the refugees? Here is a solution. Donate some canned ham.

@ Susan Diotte re “It is why our family does not give to food banks any longer. Trudeau brings them here for his glory and expects us to take care of them. For now on our family picks and chooses very selectively who we will support.”

That’s the sad and sick part. People don’t want to donate because of these Syrian parasites. I am on disability and I used to volunteer at the local food bank. Not anymore. I now work at an animal shelter (no Syrians there!). I got fed up with rude, ungrateful recipients who couldn’t be bothered to learn a single word of English – about 95% of them. Why learn English when you’ve no intention of looking for a job? People working at the food bank now have to learn several third-world languages to communicate with recipients. Canadians in need now avoid the food banks thanks to preferential treatment and bullying by the foreigners. Not to mention “the more foreigners, the less food or aid given to the Canadians”.

It’s so bad that charities are trying to hide the fact that they’re diverting resources to Syrians. They know people won’t donate if they knew. A friend of mine needed furniture after her apartment burned down. When she went to Salvation Army most of the furniture carried signs “Syrian Only”. She was turned away, and now sleeps on a blanket on her mother’s living room floor. Anyone who wants to donate to a charity – go on their website first, to see who they’re really supporting.

Daryl Herman: No you are not the only one pissed at the insanity facing us now. When I am about to explode with anger, a slab of Alberta beef or something else that eases the pain draws me back into my " Safe Space". Problem is, and I know I’m not alone, is that we are like a super volcano, eventually the lid blows off. I still feel there will be some form of civil uprising before things settle somewhat, Kinda like a stock market correction. But you are oh so correct, with the Muslim Marauder in Ottawa and Che Notley here, how can we not be MAD. And as we transition to the carbon tax, windmills and kill the coal, I think the super volcano will erupt. We may have to take that ride together. Keep in touch.
commented 2016-05-06 20:03:59 -0400
Why on earth would they spend their money on food when they can get the food for free and use their money for other things, such as supporting their local muslim mosque.
They can’t spread islam on an empty stomach.
As for not learning english, it’s easier to cry racism and to ask for more handouts when you can’t work because you can’t speak the language. Why work when you can claim nobody will hire you and you can collect welfare instead?

What the f**k happened with all the $$ allotted to these refugees for “survival” of our “volunteered” tax $$?! Then that POS makes the applauded statement that he -TruDope – will MATCH donations made to the Red Cross for our fellow Canadians – made refugees by the Ft Mac fire! And then the CBC gave some elongated air time & praises to these Muslim mosques about how much they were gathering up for these Ft Mac refugees?! Am I the only one totally PISSED at what is going on in this country?
All the while this POS PM we even have the gall to call PM – is giving millions to this Climate Change Religion at the same time negating our economic capabilities! Totally unbelievable!

This was all about importing “voters”. Never any real concern for “refugees”!

Funny how these “poor pitiful” freeloaders are cleaning out charities and food banks like locusts “to survive” – and yet they are also using the donations they were already given to help their fellow Muslims (NOT Canadians!) at Fort Mac. I’ve read several news articles lauding these Syrians as heroes for doing this. Food and donations for “refugees” are being hoarded in the mosques, while the same “refugees” raid the food banks and charities. In a disaster, do you think Christians would receive the same media worship if they hoarded prior donations in church basements, cried poor, then passed those items on to their own people and nobody else?

I was at my local Tim Horton’s in Etobicoke today. Full of fashionably dressed Hijab Princesses, $1000 SUV strollers, and their unsupervised young children running around, screaming and getting in other patrons’ way. They were feeding their tots and babies on Iced Capps and donuts, letting the kids dump them all over the floors and the seats, then leaving the mess behind for patrons to walk or sit in and staff to clean up. If they can afford SUV strollers, fancy clothing, Ice Capps and donuts for their toddlers, surely they don’t need to be cleaning out the food banks. Many in the public housing next to my building are driving brand new cars, courtesy of Woodbine Toyota. And then they’re going to the food bank.

Meanwhile in my neighbourhood, Canadians are being turned away from the food bank with half the amount of food they used to get (one day’s worth of food instead of two) while the Hijab Queens sashay home with SUV strollers and buggies fully loaded. Why are they using the food banks? Because “immigration consultants” hired by the Turdeau regime (paid for by you and me) are telling them how to exploit every charity and other available freebie. Pretty sad that taxpaying Canadians down on their luck are funding the Syrian theft of the donations they rely on.
commented 2016-05-06 16:59:25 -0400
What is not seen in the equation is that all immigrants use the food bank simply because its there. There are many many stories of taxi cabs pulling up to food banks and getting their weekly allotment of food. If it’s free , they will all use it regardless of whether they really require it.
As for the Syrians , once they found out free food was to be had , they’re there.
What should actually be done is that the Syrians sponsors should be grabbed and asked why they’re using the food bank . The sponsors are responsible for basics like housing and food. Since the various Muslim Associations in Canada sponsored a lot of these people , I’m sure they’re the ones that told them to go to the food banks. Unfortunately Prime Minister Care Bear wouldn’t do a thing to the sponsors so they’re not going to be held responsible.

Not one of the sanctimonious smug Liberal MP’s nor the Prom Minister has taken in or hosted a migrant. The darlings of the cocktail circuit are expecting someone else to handle the mess that Trudeau has created. Send the migrants down to Trudeau’s house. I’m sure the nannies would gladly hand them out some Perrier water & Kobe beef.

Tie them to a Crucifix and let the Bastards starve to death.

They do this to Christians all the time.

What is it like to be hated, Muslims?

Say it isn’t so !? Why , just yesterday CTV news had a huge headline about Syrian ‘refugees’ in Calgary donating money to help Fort MacMurray residents. I wondered how ‘refugees’ had enough money to make cash donations to assist Fort Mac residents. I thought that being a ‘refugee’ meant that the person in danger, lived in poverty and needed our economic assistance just to stay alive? Guess I had that all wrong !

This reminds me of when a teenager advertises their parents will be away for the weekend and they are putting on an open house party. The teenager wants to be popular and to be known for the best party. When the sun comes up and reality sets in, your house has been wrecked and your so called friends are either passed out in their bodily fluids or refuse to help with the clean up. Pappa Trudeau left the country in the hands of his errant son and now our house is a mess.

Ah, but doesn’t everyone know how well governments manage things.
Now the Syrian ragtops are sampling the way Canadian neglected people are treated by our goverment agencies.
They will now drain the food banks that the indigenous needy Canadians must rely on to make it through their days.
Good work Trudeau!

David White – God is very real, and he’s biding his time before he closes the trap that he’s set for those like Justie, B.O., Merkel, and all those useless idiots who aren’t smart enough to read the writing on the wall, or read between the lines of the lying MSM!
commented 2016-05-06 15:15:06 -0400
He’s coming across as the great savior for Fort MacMurray as well; just like he did with the refugees.
Of course this will cause unrest, panic for the refugees. Particularly for the younger men. Frustration, lack of activities and direction will cause the same unrest as Europe.
Sad for the people who are legitimately here in Canada.
It has begun.

No surprise whatsoever. Your Gayness, Mr. TrudQ, had better watch that " light in the loafers " step he exudes so profoundly. When his guests begin to outnumber us, and Sharia law is the flavor of the day, he will surely find himself on the wrong end of a long sword. Just in Justin!!! Muslim mayor elected in London, first in western world. And so it begins. Back here on the home front this situation with the “guests” has little chance of ending well. With Fudd seemingly hooked up to his alcohol drip permanently, what possible help will he be. Is there not a fucking detox center near Capital Hill??? That embarrassment needs HELP!!! We have the makings of another Libtard mess to finance, hope there is a REAL GOD who can look after us.If not the end may be near. Maybe we can get a LOAN from the UN out of the $billions Sheikh Justin gifted them. Ban Ki Moon, or is that Loon? is sure to send a cheque. I think not. The worst thing about the whole mess is that instead of dealing with the myriad of problems we have domestically, all Selfie can envision is how fast he can bring in the next battalion of liberal voters. That Laurentian lisping puff ball has us in a mess now.
