    As expected, Fox gets it grievously wrong .........again...

    They are Haitians for the most part - Over 80%

    They are not arrested, they are escorted to Montreal where the 1976 Olympic stadium is a temporary housing.

    Historically over 50% of Haitian refugee claimants are returned.

    We had a Mexican refugee spike about 10 yrs ago but that was fixed by travel visa's - Those Visa's requirements were removed last year.

    Fox did not get it wrong....I did....I assumed that they were mostly Mexicans.

    Arrested.....Escorted.....Call it what you wish.

    Better they are on the Canadian dole than ours.

    It would appear that this is being re-thought by Trudeau and any other person with common sense, eh?

    Can anyone come? I wouldn't mind living in Canada (during the summer only). Could I do six months in Canada as a refugee, and six months in Nicaragua?

    Do you have to have a permanent suntan to apply for the program?
    Do I HAVE to live in the tent camp? Is there free parking? How much is the dole?

    I do enjoy the rhetoric bandied about:

    racist nazi (oxymoron)

    permanent suntan (dog whistle)

    Some wag recently was quoted as saying, "In the future, everyone will be Hitler for fifteen minutes." The future is here! I need some good ideas to wisely use my fifteen minutes of Hitlerhood.

    I think it is $500,000 (Canadian) in unincumbered capitol and you get a Perm Resident card. This is part of the housing bubble now on - You bring in 500K, buy a couple houses as a rental -Use your Perm Res card to get a lower education cost for your kids etc etc.

    As we have a 40ish % income tax above 60is K the government gets a little win as well.

    A lot of small businesses start this way as well. Started about 20 yrs ago and the threshold at that time was 250,000...

    About 50% or more of the Haitians will be deported, unfortunately - The same occurred after the quake - Our incoming process is accommodating, the vetting process not so much.

    We've got 'em - A bunch were ID'd in that ruckus in NC you folks had a few weeks back - 2 weeks before that a group of "defend the pride" or some crap name like that was making a stink at a demonstration at statue of an architect of a residential schools out in Nova Scotia I think it was. (Indian schools for those who do not know, a truly reprehensible part of our history)

    Using this sort of crap is due to some other damage suffered in life (Jilted lover, parental issue, or just plain mental health) No one is born hateful.

    Too bad.... I was thinking . . . . Montreal in the summer . .. while it's raining in Nicaragua.
    I like Montreal. Or Vancouver . . . .Vancouver is nice too.

    How about if I pretend that I am a Muslim terrorist?
    There seemed to be a soft spot for them a few years back.

    If you like Vancouver, pretend you are Chinese.

    Canada has to welcome immigrants to outvote the Quebeckers.

    Quebec has not had a significant portion of the population since the 70's when they scared the anglos out. But the seats in the house are set such a way that get to Yank the country's chain when they want.

    Chinese are not just a Vancouver stereotype - Toronto has a massive Chinese (Mainland, hong kong and Taiwan) population - There was a cool book where buddy went to small town Chinese restaurants - One in Fogo NL - Yea I had no damn idea where Fogo NL is either, it is small -
