WATCH: Past experience shows Liberals are putting us all in danger with Syrian refugee plan

Brian LilleyArchive

We are being told again that there is nothing to worry about in the rush to bring 25,000 refugees to Canada in a single month. 

We’ve been over the security issues, screening that normally takes months or years will take minutes now. Health checks will be done at a rate of 16 an hour, and refugees will be brought to Canada at a rate of 900 a day on jumbo jets. But with all the concerns be they security, health or logistics we are told not to worry about a thing.

Never mind that the Americans are so worried about our refugee rush that the Trudeau government is sending Ralph Goodale out to tell the Americans there will be no problem. 

Never mind that doctors in Ontario are telling the province’s health minister that with 800,000 people in the province without a family doctor that adding 10,000 refugees so quickly will only strain the system.

Never mind that current and former immigration department officials are warning that this is going too fast. Don’t worry. Everything is fine and if you don’t think so, why are you a bigot?

Just so people know the full depth of people saying this is going too fast, here is what Gerard Van Kessel, former director general of the refugees branch at Citizenship and Immigration Canada told the Ottawa Citizen, now know that Van Kessel was in charge of bringing 5,000 Kosovars to Canada quickly in 1999 after the Balkans war and he says this is moving too quickly.

“I understand the desire to do this quickly. But to do it right, determine the steps needed, the time these steps take, the resources involved and then set the time for completion. Doing it the other way around does not make sense and invites trouble,”

Invites trouble. Could that be the security type of trouble that we have been warning about? Could he mean we will let the wolves in with the lambs, terrorists and war criminals in with real refugees fleeing real persecution? Yeah, that is what he means.

We’ve been told not to worry, terrorists and war criminals wouldn’t use the refugee system to hide. That has never happened before has it?

Well yes, in fact it has.

Let me give you some examples.

Mamoud Mohammad Issa Mohammad.

He took part in a hijacking of an El Al flight in Greece in 1968. He threw grenades in the plane, sprayed it with bullets. Killed one man, terrorized others.

He was arrested at the airport and sent to jail for 17 years, but got out early and was pardoned when his buddies hijacked another plane and said they would kill everyone if he wasn’t released. He moved to Canada in 1987 but hid his past, he was deemed inadmissible to Canada in 1988 but it took until 2013 to get him out of the country. Okay, he came as an immigrant, not a refugee, others have come as refugees.

There is a member of the Tamil Tigers, found to have committed atrocities in Sri Lanka, we have been fighting to have him removed since 2001 and his case still plods on, he is still here.

Ahmed Ressam, the millennium bomber came to Canada as a refugee, he came close to carrying out his plot to blow up Los Angeles International Airport, he had evaded Canadian officials, it was a suspicious American official that caught Ressam because he was acting strange.

And then there are the men who were all arrested on security certificates, ordered deported and fought that deportation. These men were refugee claimants, had been found by security officials and two Liberal cabinet ministers, to be sufficient enough threats to warrant their removal from Canada.

Mohamed Harkat, Mahmoud Jballah and Hassan Almrei, a Syrian national incidentally.

We have seen enough evidence to be concerned but all the Liberals can do is tell us not to worry. Sunny ways and all don’t ya know. Well I am worried. I am worried that our national government is setting aside a clear and present danger in favour of looking good, feeling good. Their misguided notion of compassion puts us all in danger, every Canadian citizen but also every real and legitimate refugee.

I refuse to be branded a bigot because I can clearly see what has happened in this country in the past and what has happened in Europe even more recently. I refuse to accept the idea that asking that the government perform due diligence makes me less compassionate or a hate monger.

I’m not rejecting refugees, I’m rejecting the terror and violence the real refugees are fleeing. If you agree with me, let me ask you, have you signed our petition at yet?

If you haven’t, please do that now. If you have, then consider sharing that page on Facebook, by email or other social media.

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

and we are told the UN has done checks and health evaluations. i have NO confidence in the UN on any issue . remember their wonderful work on the Ebola issue, and how many died due to the UN?
commented 2015-11-25 04:08:00 -0500
While I think that raising the memory of the shipload of Jewish refugees in 1939 is a bit of a red herring, it does make you wonder. If they had been admitted who is to say that some of them would not have been criminals? All Canadians might have suffered through the malfeasance of a few.

Sean Penson (if that is your real name), there is nothing stopping you or any of the other lefty trolls on this site from personally sponsoring “refugees”. When you can confirm you have done so, you can report back to this site on your personal generosity! "Til then, shut your pie hole!
commented 2015-11-24 16:37:16 -0500
No what we have to do Sean is cut UN funding and them to go to hell. Canadians should be in charge, not the corrupt and kleptocratic run UN.
commented 2015-11-24 16:35:40 -0500
Asking questions makes you a bigot (sarc). So, like usual refugees, if rejected, since they will be on their soil will they get taxpayer funded appeals?
commented 2015-11-24 14:28:23 -0500
Today, the mainstream media are reporting that “gay” single men are going to come in with these refugees. I wonder how many will be "gay"single men? Also, of concern is the fact that these refugees cannot be held for an extended period of time as they have the “right” to move around anywhere they would like to go in this country. "Moreover, once in Canada, officials broadly expect refugees to be “mobile” in about a month’s time: While thousands of people may arrive temporarily in one location, they may quickly disperse throughout Canada.

There had been some initial concerns about trying to “contain” refugees to any given location for too long, given that the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms guarantees mobility rights. Those rights apply to refugees once they arrive in Canada and could open the government up to potential legal problems, if applied." So, who is going to be tracking where these “refugees” go in Canada, especially if they have not been thoroughly “vetted”?

I will not be labelled a bigot, a rascist, an Islamaphobe, etc. simply because I am raising points of concern! Accepting refugees is fine with me, BUT only if it is done sensibly, safely, and securely. I believe in the adage “Haste makes waste!”
commented 2015-11-24 14:23:54 -0500
I am neither a bigot or a homophobe. I don’t hate refugees, but I hate terrorists. That is why I want to help the legitimate refugees while keeping the crazies out. I don’t hate Premier Wynne because of her sexual orientation, I hate her because of her policies. I totally resent being labelled by either Wynne or Trudeau as either of these just because I don’t subscribe to their distorted vision for Canada.
commented 2015-11-24 12:14:23 -0500
25,000 before Christmas. 25,000 in 2016 and 25,000 in 2017.

Trudeau is acting quickly, he dose not want to give time for Canadians to organize protests. This mass of so called Refugees, 90% of who, will be Migrant opportunists or Terrorist, will ruin Canada, just as they have ruined Europe.

Traitor Dictator Trudeau, is just paying back his Muslim brothers for their votes in the elections. To hell with Canada, is his credo.

The ringleader of the Paris attacks, returned to France, posing as a Refugee. Dose anyone in Canada think that Trudeau did not know this. His aim is to fill this country with terror, this to ease the enforcement of Sharia Law.

Perhaps we could ask the Russians to start doing target practice, on aircraft leaving Syria. I am not serious, but something drastic needs to be done, if Canada is to survive. I honestly think that Trudeau is mentally unstable.

To the best of my knowledge, none of what he is doing, has been passed through Parliament.

Bye, Canada.

I agree with Brian’s refusal to be branded a bigot. To me this is just a sleazy ploy to silence any criticism but causes the very fear and division Trudeau railed against as part of his election campaign
commented 2015-11-24 11:28:01 -0500
I have been say this for 3 weeks now. Rendering aid to an enemy with which our armed forces are engaged in combat operations against, is one of the definitions of treason! Trudeau and his cabinet are doing just that! By doing so they are committing treason, and MUST be charged with that crime!
commented 2015-11-24 11:22:36 -0500
I heard someone (apologies for not catching the name off CTV) raise a good point about Trudeau’s decision to bring in families as opposed to single men in the first group which was if they have been properly screened then why are you making this distinction?
commented 2015-11-24 11:06:29 -0500
Sean Penson, all those politicians, media, and academics you mentioned below who are in favour of bringing in the migrants without proper screening are all morons. Yes, the country is being runned by a bunch of idiots! It goes to show you how progessives are playing politics with people’s lives. This country is a gong show! Brad Wall is the only voice of reason amongst the rest of the lunatic premiers and the prime minister. For you or any other leftie who want to debate Brad Wall’s credentials or his track record are even bigger fools.

Trudeau us already backing down on the time line but it made a great vote fetter against the evil Harper. What an ass Trudeau is and the left.

Maurice Potvin said: “I have NEVER been able to sign a Rebel.Media petition. I’ve tried. In fact, every time TheRebel has come out with a petition, I’ve tried. It just keeps saving, and saving, and saving…. but it never does save. Is it just me, or has anyone else had that problem?” Yes, all the time………………..
commented 2015-11-24 07:44:12 -0500
Hey Sean if its our obligation to take in these refugees why is Saudi Arabia who is also a member nation not taking in Syrian refugees this time around. It would make more sense leaving them in a region they are used to. I will tell you why. They fear the instability bringing these people in may cause. All it takes is a handful of rabble to cause problems…Wake up Trudeau…take the proper time to screen these people. The Saudis know something you are completely clueless about.
commented 2015-11-24 03:11:47 -0500
Sean… I’m sure the “refugees” will be screened “prropey”… quote,unquote.. And that about sums up how it will be done…
commented 2015-11-24 03:07:18 -0500
Maurice Potvin… I also had the “saving, saving,saving” problem about a week ago… I thought it was a “hack” but Eitan Gilbrood – “Den Mother” to Rebel users – said the “system guys” at The Rebel are aware of this problem… In my case, using Macintosh software, I discovered that the problem was that I had switched off receiving “all” cookies… If you restore cookie acceptance to “third parties and advertisers” that may solve the problem….
commented 2015-11-24 02:48:17 -0500
Drew Wakariuk, as members of the United Nations, we are obligated to take these refugees. If they get a lot from all levels of government, oh well; it won’t be forever. How do we shirk our UN obligations? These people have been through enough; a little compassion from the heart doesn’t bother me. With all respect, almost every single refugee will be screened prropey. I hope we never see an attack, otherwise.

The government doesn’t want to participate with military action. Its first priority is climate change and a harmonious relationship with the provinces

Sean people like you are fine with them booting soldiers out so these people can live here and get more than you or me?

Sean Penson the leaders and people of Suadi Arabia , Kuwait , the UAE , Lebanon and others want nothing to do with them, you think they are just fools?
commented 2015-11-24 01:37:32 -0500
Sean Penson most of them want checks , Justin does not, and how about we only let in women and children i would prefer that.
commented 2015-11-24 01:23:01 -0500
Well, the leaders of the Anglican and United Churches are pro-refugee. Premiers Sellinger, Wynne & Clark are pro-refugee. The Mayors of Victoria, Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg, Toronto, Ottawa & Halifax are pro-refugee. Academics and media personalities, from West to East are very pro-refugee. The only opposition is just from this “rebel” site and hardcore CPC supporters. I have never met a frightened person yet! To paraphrase President Obama: the right are afraid of infants and women" Shame

Whoever told us these people will be screened for security issues and heath threats is lying. Trudeau is lying. It won’t be the last time either.

I mean we have an idiot in Alberta, she couldn’t care less about men and women losing their jobs, no sympathy there whatsoever and her moto is " anybody but Albertans" and she is kicking us down more every day, there has got to be a way to get rid of her.

Sick bunch at the helm of provinces, cities and totally insane so-called pm, liberals and NDP just don’t CARE ABOUT CANADIANS. We are a total nut bar in Alberta, sad case of a human being. Imagine our military being bouted out to make room, insane.
commented 2015-11-23 21:54:36 -0500
Don’t worry be happy. We can live the progressive utopian dream. No borders, green energy, equality. All sounds good until you turn your country into a shithole where you are equally poor with no energy to leave your borders. Instead of reading how the west was won our children will read underground books about how the west was lost. Agenda 21 anyone?
commented 2015-11-23 21:51:02 -0500
Even the Rex Murphy at the CBC is against this refugee timeline.
commented 2015-11-23 21:21:27 -0500
Brian, do you realize that they are moving our military and vets out of their housing in order to accommodate some of these people.
