Trudeau to double-down on policy mistakes: Real refugees will suffer most in coming free-for-all

Brian LilleyArchive

The Liberal’s broken promise to bring in 25,000 refugees from Syria by last week is well known but did you know that Trudeau’s government is also going to undo more than a decade of work by the Conservatives and two former Liberal governments on policies designed to weed out bogus refugees? 

Trudeau’s Liberals think that anyone that utters the magic word “refugee” must be an actual refugee rather than a queue jumper.

There are real refugees in this world (millions of them) and Canada always has been and should continue to be a welcoming place for them but looking after real ones, requires that we weed out the fake ones so they won’t drain resources, clog up the system and distract us from helping real refugees.

Back in the early 2000’s, the Chretien government signed an agreement with the U.S. to reject people trying to cross our shared border claiming refugee status if they came from a safe third country. I know because I went to the announcement by then Liberal Immigration Minister Denis Coderre. He explained why we shouldn’t be taking refugees from safe third countries - those that have rule of law, proper functioning courts, respect for human rights, all the things that we uphold in Canada and that we look for in allies and key trading partners.

Now, after a group of refugee lawyers challenged the Harper government's revised rules and won at the lower level, it’s going to be a free for all again.

The refugee lawyers want their clients to be able to file endless appeals, meaning more court time for their clients, more money for them, but fewer resources for real refugees.

Taken together, by removing the visa requirement for Mexico, reinstating gold plated healthcare even for failed refugee claimants milking the system with never ending appeals - we’re returning to a system that only benefitted activists, refugee lawyers and bogus claimants.

None of this helps actual refugees, only the connected and those willing to game the system. But for low information voters and journalists who can’t be bothered to look at the facts – it makes the Liberals look nice and caring and that’s all that matters to Trudeau - facts and reality be damned.

The drama teacher wants the Nobel Peace Prize and he is willing to put our countries safety and economy at risk to get it.

Don’t we have an Opposition Party (as weak as it is ) to discuss these ridiclous policies and show how they are going to bankrupt our poor economy ??

To most of us here the left is icomprehensibly stupid. We have Sean Penson to continuously remind us of that. Never ceases to be an eye opener.

Jerry Agar, on Newstalk1010, told a story about a Mexican person he knew. This man and his wife took a holiday in Montreal and while there, encountered another Mexican couple. They struck up a conversation and the Toronto couple learned that the Montreal couple had entered Canada as refugees. So, they asked them why they didn’t apply to come in as immigrants, the way they had. “We don’t plan to stay here,” they were told. “We came as refugees so we could have a free holiday here for a while. When we get tired of Canada, we’ll just go home.”
No wonder Stephen Harper tried to make the system more accountable!

We are in the process of having Canada’s traditional identity taken away from us. How can Canada progress if it has no roots, this is ‘Mind Control’.

It is the Muslims who will be our new masters, they will rule with their usual 7th Century, Islamic dogma. Christians and Jews will become extinct.

All this because of a, seemingly, mentally disturbed person called Justin Trudeau.

This stupidity needs to be stopped.

Sounds like Sean Penson is one who games the system as well and does not pay his/her/its own way.

Richard Neufeld: Bohoohoo!

I hope Liberal voters will be thrilled when a bogus refugee can get any kind of health related procedure done on taxpayer cost, but he/she has to come up with his/her own money for simple things like kids braces!

People voted for change back in October!!!!!!

I would srike several countries off that list.
Germany had 90 women sexually assaulted New Years Eve by what were described as Arabic or African drunks. They broke into gangs and oroceeded to assault and rob women. 90 of them . The cops were overwhelmed.
Trudeau meanwhile told Global News that he wouldn’t retaliate even if we had a terror attack Luke Paris.
We are in real trouble here!

Trudeau does not like Canadians, he loves Quebecers only and feels all PM’s should come from Quebec because they make better leaders, his words not mine. With that said, Trudeau will destroy what Canada is and the MSM will say nothing about it as they cannot get past Trudeau’s hair. English Canadians will be 3rd class citizens, Quebecers will be first class citizens while the refugees will be 2nd class citizens. Trudeau is a dictator just like his father, why do you think he wants to destroy the Asian Pacific Treaty and now do free trade with China? Trudeau did an interview last year in which he said that he loves China because of their dictatorship, this should have been a red flag for all voters but for some reason the left hears nothing because they are in awe of Trudeau’s hair. The left has always been policy makers on emotion, feelings, and outright dictatorship, the right is always about facts, data, and then coming to a reasonable conclusion, there is no reasonable conclusion with the left because they cannot debate on facts, they debate on emotion.

The peasants (us) will be forced to pay the bills becoming 2nd or 3rd class citizens in the process, assuming the Lieberal Gov’t will even consider us citizens as they consolidate power unto themselves!

Drew Wakariuk, the refugees are fair game. Sign them up for Liberal Party memberships! Oh yes, the vets…Useless pawns now that Harper is gone.…Progressive ideology is in charge now!

Next is the guns, boy wonder will not be able to leave that alone, He will divide Canada totally, It has already begun, western separatism is already starting to come alive again, never supported it back in the day, but now im all for it, let the east perish in a orgy of spending and debt seems to be what they want. Alberta only has another three years to go before our own bunch of incompetent ship of fools is kicked to the curb.

Bravo remember when the left cared about vets when Harper was in power, suddenly that does not matter to them because they cannot use them for false attacks on Harper. More of their lies and BS. NO SURPRISE!
