Hungry Canadians move over! here come the Syrians looking for free food

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 4, 2016

According to CBC Canada, almost 27,000 Syrians have arrived in Canada since November and already (in 6 months) their private sponsors are falling down on the job and even government-funded refugees are scurrying to local food banks because they have no jobs and no money.

In photo op, Canada’s boy wonder, Justin Trudeau, greets Syrians at the airport. But, has he invited any home for dinner or planned how to feed them all so they aren’t running to the media with tales of woe? Photo and sickening propaganda video: https://www.thestar.com/news/gta/2015/12/11/syrian-refugees-arriving-at-pearson-tonight-but-well-wishers-asked-to-stay-home.html

CBC Canada (begins by describing the plight of one hungry family dependent on food banks for indigent Canadians), then this:

“When we come here, we didn’t expect we get any kind of help, and, unfortunately, that was the ugly truth,” she said. “So, we are alone, and we struggle still.”

[….]

Demand is growing for food banks and the organizations that supply them.

From February to March, Daily Bread, which supplies its own food bank and 200 other food programs in Toronto, including the Scott Mission, saw a 20 per cent jump in the number of clients using its services.

[….]

It was the largest increase in recent memory, said head of research Richard Matern, and most of it was because of the influx of Syrian refugees.

“We are being overwhelmed at the moment,” he said.

Across the country in the Vancouver suburb of Surrey, more than 700 government-sponsored refugees have used the local food bank since February. [of the 1,500 resettled there—ed]

Canada has a bifurcated system.  Some refugees are government-funded (like in the US) and some are privately sponsored. Clearly they didn’t screen the private sponsors very well!  But, as reported above, even the government-sponsored refugees are devouring the supplies at local and regional food banks.

Under federal guidelines, private sponsors are legally required to cover the cost of food, rent and other living expenses for up to a year, a minimum of roughly $27,000 for a family of four, according to government estimates.

But in Asoyan’s case, her family’s sponsor, Sarkis Shaninian, is unemployed.

He had a job when he signed up to sponsor the family but has been without work for three months.

“Money, I don’t have money to help them, no,” he said in an interview with CBC News.

[….]

At last count, 26,921 Syrian refugees had arrived in Canada since last November, and thousands more whose applications are still being processed are expected to arrive by the end of this year.

Can Canadians impeach prime ministers (just wondering)?

    When will you start writing negative reports on the Alberta fire refugees? How many of them will be using food banks and leaning on the welfare system? Do you have anything nasty to say about them? The difference between them and Syrians is that nobody was shooting at them as they ran from Ft. McMurray.

      You reveal your ignorance in many ways with your “bleeding heart” statements. Perhaps you’re a young person thoroughly indoctrinated by the mainstream media propaganda machine whose mission is to capture gullible minds, such as yours. Your juvenile diatribe is woefully short on facts, but filled with “negative” emotionalism based on induced sentiments designed to spark such a knee-jerk response as you have done.

      The “Alberta fire refugees” (as you describe) are NOT refugees, but a vast majority of Canadian-born citizens living on their own land, and whose fellow-Canadians are coming to their aid via OUR food banks and OUR welfare system in OUR own nation — as is the intended purpose.

      You say “The difference between them and Syrians is that nobody was shooting at them as they ran from Ft. McMurray.”

      Please spare us with your feeble attempt at spreading “White-guilt” here … but I do have an answer for you:

        You are wrong! They are internal refugees. They have lost their homes, jobs and many have lost their personal documents. They are just as much God’s children as the Syrians who also have lost family members, friends and their country. You lack the empathy and compassion that has made Canada a great country. Mean minded nasty little people like you have a special place reserved in Hell. Be warned, you will be judged by what is in your hear and so far it does not look good! If you claim to be a Christian, you would be best to read Mathew 25:35 to 36. “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

        And then look at Mathew 25:41 to 43 “41“Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’

          I’ve said many times in the past that we don’t post personal attacks on commenters, but I decided this exchange was illustrative. First, Mr. Steele, can’t you make logical arguments rather than attempt to sit in judgement of someone else’s soul, and secondly, Christ was not talking about governments (“you” was not a government, it was “you” as an individual). Each of you (as individuals) may make your own personal decisions about generosity and welcome, but you have no right to coerce others and that includes coercing governments. So, I assume, Mr. Steele, that you have opened your own home to Syrians as well as your fellow Canadians (in need of comfort because of the fire), and for that we commend you.

    This is unbelievable. We can not even feed and cloth our own poor and needy American  citizens, yet our president  will bring in thousands  of refugees here some of which will have a green light to visit the white house, and all of which will receive a better heath care program than I can afford my own family.i work 60 to 75 hours a week and have been doing this since I started working.it was simple if you didn’t work you didn’t eat…..this is SICKENING……
