Row in Canada over where the 25,000 newly admitted Syrians came from, camps or private living situations

We’ve been reporting on Canada’s extensive ‘airlift’ of 25,000 plus Syrians since the election of Justin Trudeau only 6 months ago. (click here for our Canada category)

Media images of Canadian Immigration minister John McCallum visiting a Syrian refugee camp in Lebanon were used to sell the resettlement to Canadian taxpayers. I suspect they know even less about those “refugees” ultimately resettled in Canada because they were quickly plucked from neighborhoods throughout the Middle East.

This is a very interesting article published at The Hill Times that explains the criticism being leveled at the government for promoting Syrian refugee camp images to sell the airlift while most of the 25,000 + who were ultimately resettled were living in apartments throughout the region.

Apparently a decision was made to not show the Syrians living in apartments and participating in the local economy because that image would not persuade Canadians (who shelled out huge sums for the hasty resettlement) that they were in dire need of rescue.

In any case they allowed the UNHCR to choose their refugees and vouch for them on security grounds.

One of the things I would like to know is, what percentage of the new Canadians are Sunni Muslims and what percentage are religious minorities. Not one word in this whole article.

As we reported here in February, the Senate Homeland Security Committee is worried about who might have been hastily admitted to Canada to fulfill Trudeau’s election promise.

Is it time to start worrying about a border fence with Canada?

  1. For every migrant returned to Turkey the EU has agreed to take in one asylum seeker. Result, massive islamic immigration anyway.

    1. And the news today is that those being returned to Turkey are threatening to kill themselves or their children. You watch someone will do it and Europe will back down on even that plan!

      1. I posted a link about the above on my FB wall earlier with the observation…

        It is a crock of course but manna from heaven for those who never read past the headlines.

        Philip, it is the old shell game. Now you see it and now you don’t And why they don’t see it is the fact that they do not read past the headlines. Our people are ignorant, stupid, gullible, and so easily led to their own destruction, and that is why we find our culture in such dire straits.

        As Paul Simon wrote…”A man hears what he wants to hear, and disregards the rest.” Those issues that are disregarded are the ones, without fail, that will come back to bite a man on the ass. Just a little old fashioned Karma coming down.


      2. Call me silly, but I don’t see threats of suicide and murder as a selling point that refugees are just like you and me, that they just want the same things we do, like safety, jobs and an education for their children…the same children, mind you, they just threatened to murder in a fit of temper Cruella DeVille would envy. There’s an education right there for everybody.

  2. Humanitarian crisis indeed! This is an invasion force sponsored by our Globalist leaders and this is the proof…
    Whatever happened to the concerns about global warming? A lot of jet fuel is being burned to bring in 25,000 invaders.

  3. The Canadian neo Marxist leaders will follow the same path and implement Shiria law like most of
    Europe (ref. to my other post on today “we are at war”) Canada’s hope is slim to none.


  4. This IS the destruction of other Countries and when they build mosque spewing hatred towards those who help them is never-ending, and mooch off the system, and their refusal to assimilate- Yup that’s the destruction of people and Countries. Shame on those in power, U all have the death of u’r own people, debt and poverty, and the destruction of u’r country and culture on u’r hands! Guilty as charged- all for greed and power at the expense of u’r own people! Shame on all of U!

  5. I have been observing McCallum, the minister of Immigration/Refugees, as much his demeanor as his speech.
    I my opinion, the man is showing signs of early senility.
    That is what Canadians get when a ski board instructor is elected Prime Minister.
