Syrian refugees sign petition complaining about 'inadequate hotels', 'Canadian Middle Eastern Food'

StaffRebel Columnist

A group of Syrian refugees based in London, Ontario are enraged by how the London Cross Cultural Learner Centre handled their resettlement.

Peter Fragiskatos, Liberal MP for London North Centre has asked the federal government to investigate after more than 20 refugees signed a petition saying they had been mistreated by the city’s main settlement agency.

According to London Free Press, the petition says that, “The hotel many were placed in was understaffed and inadequate; medical services were not provided in a timely manner, leaving many kids very ill; the food was 'borderline unsuitable for human consumption'; and people have been forced into apartments, often too small for their families, without any choice of location.

Londoner Mariam Hamou, who has been volunteered to welcome the refugees said that, “They are not upset at the Canadian government. They don’t want to complain because they are grateful, but they are really upset with the way the CCLC has dealt with them.”

However, Valy Marochko, director of the Cross Cultural Learner Centre, shed some light into how demanding the refugees actually were.

“We tried to please. We listened to any issues. We always do,” he said. “I don’t know why this is coming up now.”

Marochko explained that the refugees didn't like meals provided by a London Middle Eastern restaurant because it was “Canadian Middle Eastern”.

As for the hotels the refugees took issue with, they were “franchises with standards”.

“We were helping 1,000 people. If we have two per cent that are not happy, I’m really sorry for that, of course,” Marochko said.

London refugees have been in the news a lot lately.

Earlier this week we reported how a family was considering going back to Syria after they received noise complaints for being loud.

They're not even Liberals yet and already the refugees are complaining about their entitlements.

Deb, what a brilliant idea. Where do I sign. Lets get a serious newsworthy petition going. Even the CBC would cover it. We can rent a Liberian garbage scow to send them off.

In 50 years they will be the majority and they will have everything their way. Better stop them now!!

Typical liberal whining. They’re already complaining. I guess they’re following the liberal line “they’re entitled to their entitlements”

I will donate $5 to send them home.

I would like to sign a petition to send them all back to where they came from. Just what have these so called refugees contributed to this country – nothing, and they never will. If your “free” accommodations aren’t good enough and you don’t like the “free” food why don’t you go to trudeau’s house and see how well you make out there, maybe Sophie can sing for you.

Hey special snowflakes try living like a Canadian. Having to do you own dishes, make the beds, do your own laundry, look after your own kids and work a job, or two, to make ends meet. Endure wait times of months or years for medical treatment and no free dental, eye glasses or discretionary drugs. And, after working you whole life and paying ridiculous amounts of taxes, you can look forward to trying to live on less per month than the $61.00 per day that you ungrateful migrants are getting for your meal allowance. In short S.T.F.U. Do our Country a favor and leave.

Here, let me check for the CBC News article that will surely shed greater light on this story.

Dear complaining Syrians – I know a place where you can get all the best Middle-Eastern food you want, served in an authentic Syrian atmosphere – and it’s only a plane ride away – sorry they don’t deliver.

2% complained, I’d expect that in any crowd of people.

On behalf of all Canadians; Go the fuck home. We didn’t want you in the first place, no ones cares for you or about you and we certainly don’t give a shit about your comfort. clear enough?

I know of friends of my relatives that are associated with Mount Royal college that are feeding the McMURRY fire Muslims , and complaining about the food .
Ungrateful BASTARDS

This is just the beginning. The Liberals largesse on your dime. I hope the food will be good when they start sending us to internment camps for speaking ill of Islam. I’ve been studying up on camp life by watching reruns of Hogan’s Heroes and Stalog 17

Send them home. I didn’t want em here in the first place.
commented 2016-06-16 14:31:52 -0400
Guess they should have brought in the Christians and Yazidis instead of the better off demanding Muslims who were already settled back home. Watch the stupid liberals rush in another 50,000.
