Trudeau bringing back "gold-plated" health plans for all - even failed refugee claimants

Brian LilleyArchive

Just in time for more than 25,000 refugees from Syria, the new Liberal government has announced they will reverse changes to the refugee health care system brought in by the Conservatives.

In 2010 the Conservatives promised and later delivered on changes to make sure refugees and failed refugee claimants were not getting better health care coverage than Canadians.

Jason Kenney, felt the gold plated plan for refugees, "should be no more generous than is typically the case within provincial health-care programs.”

He undertook a thorough review and in the end, some things that Canadians cannot get from their government plans like eye care and dental care were taken away. Other procedures, including easier access to surgery, were added to the plan though you never heard about that.

Since media were too lazy or too partisan to check claims made by opposition parties and refugee advocates, they only talked about "cuts" and now Liberal immigration minister John McCallum is promising to reverse what he terms "draconian" cuts.

We had provincial governments, premiers and health ministers writing to the feds demanding they restore the old system and reverse cuts even though the cuts only stopped paying for things provincial plans didn't pay for.

Reality check: The current plan in place provides tiered access to healthcare depending on what category the person is in but even failed refugee claimants, people that have been ordered out of the country, still have access to basic health coverage until they are finally sent home.

Under the Liberals we can expect the limited deportations to slow down and the healthcare benefits to ramp up. And you won't hear all the facts from other media outlets either.

HYANCINTH – Honestly, what would it take? What would move you to having an open mind on the cause of Sweden’s increased rape numbers? I am not suggesting you avoid a “Muslims are the cause” hypothesis but until you actually find real evidence – why would you promote it as truth?

None of the links you’ve provided offer ANY evidence – I get that they all have very provocative stories and headlines and they quote pretty shocking numbers. But …

The change in rape stats in Sweden has been explained by both Swedish Police officials, criminologist and academics. It is certainly due in large part by a change in the way Sweden counts rapes and the attitude in the country that increasingly encourages women to report it.

I can see that there is a link you provided to a story about a woman who was horribly raped by Muslim men. I have no reason to believe this is not true – nobody is denying it does happen. It sadly does. But rape and crime generally is not unique to Muslims, or Christians, or Atheists etc. For every crime stat you find that involves Muslims I can easily find several that involve others. It means nothing

There are stats quoted in several of your links about 85% of rapes in Sweden being committed by people born outside of Sweden. If you actually read the source of those numbers they do in fact come from a respected research organization. But three important things to consider:

1) The numbers are statistics collected between 15 and 25 years ago.
2) The report does not claim that 85% of the crimes were committed by Muslims – just 85% people that were not originally Swedish – they could have been Canadian Jews for all we know.
3) The researchers themselves stated that the 85% of rapes figure was based on such a small sample size that they could not draw any conclusions from them.

This last problem can be illustrated with the following example. If I count two rapes that happened yesterday, one by an African Muslim and one by a white Christian, it will be true to say that 50% of the sample rapes were perpetrated by Muslims – but of course it has no predictive relevance.

Now I do not know how big the Swedish sample was – I expect it was more than 2 – but if the researchers did not trust the results why do you?

My first question to you stands.

It is logically impossible to prove a negative and I certainly cannot show you evidence that Muslims DO NOT rape more than others – but you still have provided NO evidence they do.

I appreciate if you read enough of these sensational stories and postings and you just accept the numbers without looking any deeper it’s hard not to think they represent some kind of truth.

Nearly 25% of all men in this world follow Islam to some extent. It’s intellectually lazy to be sucked into believing that they are all criminals or have criminal intent without some substantial evidence to base that claim on.

" Resident aliens from Algeria, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia dominate the group of rape suspects. Lawyer Ann Christine Hjelm found that 85 per cent of the convicted rapists were born on foreign soil or from foreign parents."

Nowhere in that article is there a shred of substantiation for those assertions.

How is it they can do this already, (change the immigration and other laws) based on an election promise?
An election promise isn’t law.
Have all the MP’s been sworn in, taken the oath? Has the new parliament been officially proclaimed?
Where is the new bill and parliamentary debate on these changes to the law?
I can’t find the new MP’s contact info on the parliamentary House of Commons registry.
Some open government this is ??? What arrogance to ram this through based on Trudeau’s bleeding heart compassion feelings. Makes Harper look like a saint.

" You can deny all you want, the fact is rape is NOT more prevalent in Sweden with immigrants than it was before. "

Au contraire:
“The number of rape charges in Sweden has quadrupled in just above twenty years. Rape cases involving children under the age of 15 are six times as common today as they were a generation ago. … Resident aliens from Algeria, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia dominate the group of rape suspects. Lawyer Ann Christine Hjelm found that 85 per cent of the convicted rapists were born on foreign soil or from foreign parents. "

Bury your head in the sand if it makes you feel better.

@ Drew & Charleton, the faux Liberal feminists who have hijacked the real feminist movement focus exclusively on gender rather than women’s humanity. They think an effective way to counter rape culture is walking around half naked and encouraging women and young girls to continue degrading themselves. There is a culture of rape out there, but it’s not what Liberals think it is. It’s something ingrained in primitive beliefs like those of Islam, not Western ideals.

My best friend is a rape victim, and if you’ve ever talked to a victim of this sickening crime, you can just see it in their eyes how deeply it has affected their lives when they recount what happened to them. Because first world countries have evolved and posses ethics and basic common sense and decency, rape is not only unacceptable, but also considered one of the worst crimes that can be committed on another human being. Our society has evolved to understand how horrifically violating and traumatizing rape is for women, men, and especially children.

Middle Eastern culture, on the other hand, actually teaches men from boyhood and women from girlhood that men are entitled to women’s bodies, and women can have no say in the matter. The men are actually encouraged to be sick in the head sociopaths, and the only things these women can do for protection is cover themselves from head to toe and never leave the house without a male escort, and often not even that helps them. They have no say about their own person because they’re not considered people in the minds of their primitive “men.” A woman’s very humanity is disregarded, and these are the twisted ideals that cause the real plight of women around the world. Liberal “feminists” either don’t get it, or choose to ignore this fact. They’re too busy making fools out of themselves for attention to actually care about the real issues affecting women and girls, and making the world safer for them. I’ve learned over the years that having Conservative values benefits women far more than Liberal political correctness. Liberal views and actions tend to serve the perpetrators rather than the victims, but Conservative men and women know what the real issues are, and are willing to stand up against violent oppression such as Sharia law, and the sick bastards who practice and/or accommodate it.

I would hope that the legal ramifications of this debacle will be sorted out long before any refugee sets foot on this coveted soil, If so much as ONE Canadian looses there life to any refugee that is fast tracked to meet an election promise before proper investigation, May the largest Class action Lawsuit against Trudeau, the Liberal Party representing our Canadian Government be fast tracked as well. Our lives are worth much more than The Liberal Party’s election promises that for all intense and purposes where NEVER EXPLAINED in detail. I hope that Central Canada reaps all the benefits of these Refugees as we in Western Canada will to the best of out ability try and stymie this process until proper Investigated research is completed on any one Trudeau and his Party try to send West! If ever there was a party so bent on destroying Canada it is this Liberal Party under the guidance of Truduh JR!

George’s mom of course you deny those lnks to some reputable sources. You lefty idiots are all the same, lie, deny and fabricate BS. Muslims usebrape as a weapon They also use genital mutilation to stop women from enjoying sex. They also stone women and amputate limbs. I guess you deny that too.
Several US states have legislated that foreign laws cannot be introduced into their law codes. A direct effort to prevent Sharia from being used to deal with Muslims. The UK hasvereas where Sharia courts operate.
I suspect if you had a functioning brain you would recognize truth.

Well. Um. That’s helpful.

And all of those headlines … they represent real proof that there’s an epidemic of rape in Sweden and it’s all caused by their growing Muslim population?

OK. I’m not going to be closed minded. How about I just type “Proof Earth is Flat” into Google?

Wow I got 37M results. Finally a definitive answer. This is so much easier than doing real research.

Now a search for “Ezra is a closet Muslim” – wow 7M results plus pictures! I can’t wait to share this new technique with all my friends.

So DREW and CHARLETON, your thesis is that the increase in recorded rapes in Sweden (which according to 2010 stats is not just the highest in Europe but the second highest in the world!!) is due to their large population of Muslims, yes?

I can link you to a number of articles that quote criminology professors who explain the challenge of comparing such stats across juristictions. And they point out the very precise way Sweden has started to investigate and record rapes. Interestingly in one article I read they show that Canada records more kidnappings than Mexico – turns out we count any complaint to police of a separated parent keeping their children as kidnapping.

But nevermind. I’m game to try the Swedish rape analysis anyway.

So should we do this on the basis of the actual number of Muslims in Sweden or their percentage within the total population?

Well, it turns out that Canada had twice the number of Muslims living here in 2010 compared to Sweden – but our rape count was far less … about 1/30th.

OK maybe we should look at percentage instead.

Switzerland had almost exactly the same number of Muslims as Sweden in 2010 – slightly more in percentage terms – and their recorded rapes: 1/10th.

OK, how about France? 4.5M Muslims – that’s quite a few – accounting for 7.5% of the total population. Sweden’s has only 450K Muslims and they account for 5% of their population … and the rape numbers are … France records just a quarter the number of rapes compared to Sweden.

I’m not seeing a lot of correlation in the numbers guys. But maybe I missed something. So feel free to send me your evidence (remember, that’s different from opinion – just say’n). Link away.
