First of all, let's drop the "migrant" bunkum. It's meaningless left-wing political claptrap.It's clearly obvious they are trying to take advantage of us because we are suckers. We are really soft on immigration and asylum seekers.
Call the 490 Tamil "migrants," now being processed in British Columbia because of our over-accommodating and therefore outdated refugee policies, something more reflective of what they truly are.
Like queue-jumpers, scam artists, back-door home invaders, plus a terrorist or two.
Many Canadians would have preferred that we intercept their ship and send them back from whence they came but according to some we can't because of international law. OK, but then we have a certain supreme court ruling that has said we must give migrants like these charter rights but according to Ezra Levant, that rule does not hold water.
A tie vote at the Supreme Court 25 years ago doomed us to accept the ship of 490 Tamils that arrived in Victoria last week.Some suggest that the PM should use the not withstanding clause within the Charter in this case. Maybe, but something has to be done in any case. This cannot go on. I think the PM should recall parliament immediately to get this headache dealt with. Introduce a bill that would prevent this from happening again. Make it a confidence measure and if need be take it to the people and let us decide. This would be an issue to take into an election. Our country is at stake. We must not allow those who are not citizens to dictate to us.
In a 1985 case called Singh v. Minister of Employment and Immigration, the court ruled that our Charter of Rights applied to foreigners, not just Canadian citizens.
Foreigners overseas could now use the Charter to enforce their “rights” against our country.
The six judges hearing that case were split on the subject, three against three. But a tie is broken by the Chief Justice. So one, unelected man changed Canada’s immigration system, granting foreigners the right to sue their way into our country, from wherever they might be in the world.
I am so sick and tired of being taken advantage of and scammed. We must be careful who we allow into our house. We cannot be the dumping ground of the world. We must bombard our MPs,Senators the PM, the Minister of Immigration, the Minister of Public Safety and the opposition leaders to let them know of our displeasure and demand something be done like yesterday. Something with teeth that would not allow this kind of thing to happen again.
BTW. Forgive me for not posting the last couple days, I injured my right hand. The lid of the BBQ suddenly came slamming down on my hand the other day while I was checking on the fish that my husband had started BBQing. It was swollen a bit and sore for awhile but it's better now nothing broken, just bruised a bit and a little tender. I mustn't have lifted the lid the way I guess.
