Testimony at the Public Safety Committee of the House of Commons revealed the fact that of the 21,000 refugees that have been screened and are either in Canada or in transit to Canada, almost none of them came from camps. That’s right. They weren’t living in camps or living in squalor as we had been told and this was NOT about helping the most vulnerable.
The Rebel If you’ve been following our coverage of this story, this should confirm that the Liberals don’t know what they’re doing other than rushing people through the door as fast as they can, then warehousing them in hotels at tremendous expense to taxpayers.
This project has been a disaster from beginning to end and this latest revelation that we’re not bringing in people from squalid camps, just gives more proof to what we’ve been saying all along – that this whole costly exercise was just a vanity project for Justin Trudeau and a way to create future voters for the liberal party.
Justin Trudeau intends to admit 300,000 immigrants into Canada in 2016 — the largest amount ever admitted in a single year. These will not be skilled foreign workers, either. Many will be immigrants’ spouses and other relatives, or simply economic migrants.
The Rebel Despite how both parties try to sell us immigration by saying it’s either good for the economy or good for diversity, with our current system the taxpayer almost always loses. This Fraser Institute study lays out the facts.
