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)?

One Catholic in the world is not advocating for the wholesale movement of Syrians to the West….

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 1, 2016

He is the Archbishop of Aleppo, Syria and in this interview with Catholic News Service he is highly critical of Canada’s mass importation of Syrians.  (By the way, we have never seen a breakdown of the percentage of Muslim v. Christian Syrians Canada is admitting.)

Archbishop of Syria

I’m guessing he would be even more appalled if he knew how the US Conference of Catholic Bishops takes millions of tax dollars every year and is now busy scattering Syrians to the four winds and into every corner of America.

Here is what he says about the cradle of Christianity potentially being devoid of Christians.

I wonder does this give any good Catholics pause about what is being done in their name when thousands upon thousands of Syrians are scattered for permanent resettlement?

MONTREAL (CNS) — Seated in a quiet room, the Melkite Catholic archbishop of Aleppo, Syria, spoke slowly, in an almost muffled voice.

He goes on to describe a horrible bombing of the city.  Then this….

The city is 8,000 years old. It gave civilization to the world,” said Archbishop Jeanbart, giving details about what Aleppo brought to history, culture, science and economics. Located in northern Syria, until recently Aleppo was a driving force for the country’s economy, providing work to 1.2 million workers and hosting 150,000 university students.

“More than half of the city’s population left over the last four or five years,” added the archbishop who has served there since 1995.

Ever since the war started, Archbishop Jeanbart has said that his wish is to see the population — and especially the Christians — stay in Syria. When asked what he thinks about Canada welcoming 25,000 Syrian refugees in the past few months, he was not impressed.

“We’re not happy when we see the Canadian government moving refugees and facilitating their integration. It hurts us. A lot,” he said.

[….]

….he would rather see the Canadian government making more efforts to allow the Syrian population to stay in Syria.

[….]

We will reconstruct our country. We want to build and stay,” he said, pounding the arm of his chair. “We want it to be our country and stay in this country where Christianity was born, and give a testimony of Christ’s love and charity, and of the possibility to live together, as men believing in God and respectful of one another.”

And, I wonder if the Pope ever listens to others of his faith who clearly must disagree with what he (the Pope) is advocating.

Canada: Catholic High School basketball star is 29-year-old “refugee”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 28, 2016

A month ago I created a new category which I subsequently didn’t use (laugh of the day) because everything has just been too darn deadly serious.  But, here is a laugh for you….

[My apologies to our many Canadian readers because I have a whole pile of news on Canada I haven’t gotten to. Problems are starting to arise (no surprise!) because of Boy Trudeau’s hasty resettlement of thousands upon thousands of Syrians.]

 

nicola

Rival coach on Jonathan Nicola high school bball wonder: look at that face, is that the face of a 17-year-old?

 

Here is the story, a request for a US visa confirmed what other coaches were saying about the ‘star’ player (hat tip: Joanne):

Canadian authorities said Wednesday that a budding high school basketball star is actually a 29-year-old refugee*** from South Sudan.

The Canadian Border Services Agency said that Jonathan Nicola was arrested earlier this week for contravening the country’s Immigration Refugee Protection Act.

The agency said Nicola “misrepresented material facts” on his application for a study permit to Canada, submitting an application with a date of birth of Nov. 25, 1998 — which would make him 17. The agency says when Nicola recently applied for a U.S. visitor visa, a fingerprint match determined he was an individual who had made a previous application to the U.S. using a date of birth of Nov. 1, 1986 — making him 29.

The Windsor Star reported that Nicola was remanded into custody after a hearing before the country’s Immigration and Refugee Board Tuesday. Another hearing is scheduled for next week. Nicola faces deportation if convicted.

Nicola was attending Catholic Central High School in Windsor and played on the basketball team, even living with head coach Pete Cusumano. In January, Cusumano told the Windsor Star that he thought Nicola had a chance to play in the NBA.

***Fox News is using the word ‘refugee’ loosely because Nicola appears to be getting around (the world) with a student visa not as a refugee.  But, in fact it is just such visas that the UN and the Obama Administration are looking to in order to increase rapidly the number of Syrians coming to the US, see here.

Update:  Forgot to tell you where the photo came from:

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

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 4, 2016

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)

john-mccallum2

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. http://ottawacitizen.com/news/too-much-make-believe-in-syrian-program-former-top-bureaucrat-says

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?

Canada: Syrian airlift making history, 26,000 have arrived with 10,000 more being ‘welcomed’

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 1, 2016

They are having a problem finding housing, but what the heck, let’em in!

Trudeau change

Boy Trudeau promised change and he is going to get it. Just make sure you keep them all north of the border!

From The Guardian:

Canada will take in an additional 10,000 Syrian refugees, adding to the more than 25,000 already received in the last few months, said immigration minister John McCallum.

McCallum told the Canadian Broadcasting Corp he was responding to complaints from Canadian groups who want to sponsor Syrian refugees but did not have their applications processed quickly enough to be among the government’s initial target of 25,000.

“We are doing everything we can to accommodate the very welcomed desire on the part of Canadians to sponsor refugees,” McCallum said in a phone interview with CBC News from Berlin, where he is meeting with the German interior minister.

By the way, Canada’s system is different from ours.  They have some government resettled refugees and some privately sponsored ones, ours are all taxpayer-funded refugees with no private sponsorships.   Although I think that legally a group/church could still sponsor a refugee family to America, but the resettlement contractors would probably scream bloody murder because it could cut into the numbers they are paid to seed throughout the country.

Washington Post: Boo hoo, Syrian resettlement to US going sloooowly

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 13, 2016

It appears that the reason the resettlement of mostly Sunni Syrians to the US (less than 1,000) in roughly the same time period as Canada is seeding 25,000 throughout our neighbor to the north, is that the US is taking serious security measures while Canada is not.

Andrew Harper

The UN’s man in Jordan, Andrew Harper: Canada was able to get thousands moved to Canada because they are less interested in security than the US government is…hummm!

Obama has promised 10,000 will be resettled here before September 30th (the last day of fiscal year 2016), but so far deep in the bowels of our security apparatus some officials are taking their jobs seriously.  That said, the WaPo tells us that the screening is being dramatically stepped up right now.

Here is the Washington Post (skipping the obligatory ‘poster mom and kids’ that open the report!):

….by the end of February, less than 1,000 Syrians have made it to the United States, and resettlement experts question whether the United States can reach its target by September.

[….]

Between February and April, the State Department and Homeland Security Department are pulling in additional staff to Jordan to help interview more and more Syrian applicants. The U.S. Embassy in Jordan said 30 officers from Homeland Security have been posted to Jordan and a new facility has been opened. Similiar efforts are underway in Lebanon and Iraq.

[….]

The U.N. refugee agency, which first interviews Syrians and refers vulnerable cases to U.S. authorities, also have shifted into a higher level of energy. Staff have been relocated to Amman from across the region, with evening shifts being put in place. In phone banks, U.N. staff members call refugees who may eligible for resettlement.

[….]

Andrew Harper, the U.N. refugee agency’s representative to Jordan, said the speedy resettlement of 25,000 Syrians in Canada has shown what can be done. But the big difference between Canada and the United States, Harper acknowledged, is their level of security concerns.

More here.  It simply is not true what the ‘humanitarians’ claim that terrorists don’t get in to the US as refugees.  Even the New York Times admits they do, here.

Just a reminder!  If Bernie or Hillary are elected President in November, you can be sure there will be no interruption in the flow of Middle Eastern and North African Muslims to the US.  It will be all over for us because after 4 or 8 more years of unabated flow, erasing America will be a done deal.  Get everyone you know to the polls this year!

For a chuckle: Canadian says she will ‘welcome’ Trump refugees, but not the thousands of Syrian Muslims

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 5, 2016

I’m surprised the LA Times even published this woman’s remarks when asked how she felt about all those Americans who say they will move to Canada if Donald Trump is elected president.

Here is Elaine….

trudeau diversity

They think if they say it over and over again it will be true!

Elaine Munro, 62, is a retail customer service clerk in Almonte, just outside Ottawa.

“I would rather have a bunch of Americans than all of these Muslims [the Canadian government is] bringing in,” she said. “I am totally against that. They’re taking jobs that Canadians have. The [Canadian] government is setting them up better than how Canadians are being looked after. Healthcare is being overrun by [Syrian refugees].”

Readers here know that boy Trudeau promised Canada would take 25,000 Syrians within a few months of his election as prime minister and sure enough he has (much to the consternation of Canadians like Elaine).

Thousands are living in hotels (on the taxpayers’ dime) throughout Canada as the country doesn’t have an adequate supply of housing especially for large families.

Trudeau will be “on the hot seat” in a 60 Minutes interview to be aired Sunday evening, for more click here.

Canadian Imam prays with Syrian refugees, asks Allah to destroy enemies of Islam

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 14, 2016

….and he loves Justin Trudeau!

For new readers, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau promises to resettle tens of thousands of Syrian Muslims in coming weeks, months and years.

alberta

From CIJ News:

Alberta Islamic Welfare Association hosted on Family Day (February 5, 2016) Syrian refugees and their families for a social gathering with members of the local Muslim community in Edmonton and the Imam Shaban Sherif Mady.

Canadian imam

Edmonton radical Imam Sheikh Shaban Sherif Mady likens Justin Trudeau to 7th Century Christian king who converted to Islam. Hmmm? http://en.cijnews.com/?p=17843

Sheikh Shaban Sherif Mady (شعبان شريف ماضي), was a scholar at al-Azhar theological school in Egypt and served at the Ministry of Endowment and Ministry of Education of the Egyptian government. Today, he is the Imam of a Muslim congregation in Edmonton, Alberta which holds its Friday prayers at Glengarry Hall in Edmonton.

In his speech to the Syria refugees, Shaban Sherif Mady greeted them, emphasized the merits of the people of Greater Syria in the eyes of Allah for defeating the Crusaders and the Tatars and ended with a supplication to Allah. The following is an excerpt of the supplication (originally in Arabic):

“O Allah! Strengthen the mujahideen [jihad fighters in the path of Allah] everywhere, make their hearts firm and strong, let them hit their targets, give them victory over their enemies.

“O Allah! Destroy the oppressors.

“O Allah! Destroy your enemies, the enemies of religion (Islam).

“O Allah! Whoever wishes good for Islam and the Muslims bestow all goodness upon him.

“O Allah! Whoever wishes ill for us and wishes ill for Islam and the Muslims, make his plot (tied) around his neck and make him preoccupied with himself, and make his plan cause his own destruction.”

Senate Homeland Security Committee worries about Canada’s Syrian refugee flood

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 3, 2016

The plan by new Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau foresees 25,000 Syrian refugees to arrive in Canada by the end of the month. US Senators worry that they cannot be thoroughly vetted and ask that since we share an over 5,000 mile border could the massive influx pose security threats for us?

The Committee will hold a hearing this morning at 10 a.m. (see here).

Here is the news at Channel News Asia:

WASHINGTON/OTTAWA: Canada is proceeding with plans to take in 25,000 Syrian refugees, but the country’s background-vetting programme is under scrutiny by a U.S. congressional panel, with a hearing set for Wednesday, amid lawmaker concerns about U.S. security.

trudeau-obama

Pals! Canada’s Immigration minister pretty much says, who cares what the US Senate does, we have already run it past Obama and he is fine with it! Photo: The boys will meet again in Washington in March. http://www.am980.ca/2015/12/29/justin-trudeau-to-visit-barack-obama-march-10th/

The Senate Homeland Security Committee has questions about the Ottawa government’s intake of refugees by the end of February and the possibility that violent militants could mix in and cross the long, largely porous U.S.-Canada border.

At the public hearing, senators will question U.S. and Canadian experts and a U.S. Border Patrol officer on Canada’s “fast track” resettlement programme. Canada’s government turned down an invitation to send a spokesperson to the session.

“We have been in frequent touch with members of the U.S. administration who are satisfied with what we are doing … if the U.S. Senate wants to engage in these activities, that is their right, of course,” John McCallum, Canada’s immigration minister, told reporters on Tuesday.

Initial inquiries show Canada’s background checks on refugees are less rigorous than the 18- to 24-month vettings done by U.S. authorities before letting any Syrian refugee set foot on American soil, congressional aides said.

Canada’s new Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has already delayed his government’s program. It had targeted resettlement of the 25,000 by the end of 2015.  Now the target is February.

By the way, Canada’s plan could affect states like Montana that share long borders with our neighbor to the north.

We have a huge archive on Canada, this is our 170th post on their problems with refugees.  Click here.  Be sure to note that Trudeau was at Davos recently with the other globalists.

Now Toronto wants a pause in Syrian refugee flow to city!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 21, 2016

You can’t make this up!  Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau (the boy who loves Muslims!) first promised 25,000 Syrians would be resettled in Canada before the close of 2015, now the goal is by the end of February of this year, but they forgot to see if they had enough housing!

justin-trudeau-davos

All the cool people are at Davos this week, including “intellectual powerhouse” Trudeau. http://news.nationalpost.com/news/canada/justin-trudeaus-speech-at-world-economic-forum

We reported on Ottawa yesterday, now here comes Toronto as government frantically searches for more ‘welcoming’ cities who need more Muslim immigrants!

Hitting the “pause” button!

From the Toronto Sun:

TORONTO – The federal government is briefly hitting the pause button on Syrian resettlement efforts in Toronto and looking for other cities to take in refugees.

Immigration Minister John McCallum revealed Wednesday that resettlement groups in Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver and Halifax have asked for a temporary stop in the flow of government-sponsored refugees. But McCallum also told reporters he believes Canada is still on track to bring in 25,000 Syrian refugees by the end of February.

The pause means refugees will now remain in hotels for a few extra days after their flights land in Canada.

“The flow from the airplanes is not slowing down at all,” McCallum said during a speech in Toronto. ”It’s just certain towns or cities need a pause. There will be other places in Canada who will receive the refugees.”

Canadians in other cities beware!

The feds are actively seeking more cities to take in government-assisted Syrian refugees.

Photo:  Will Trudeau heed the warning of the World Economic Forum founder, Klaus Schwab, who anticipates a massive flow of migrants out of Africa this year.  Or, perhaps he will be pulled into the ‘feel good’ crowd around Mr. Chobani Yogurt?
