This would be very amusing if one did not consider the thread topic.
I live on a First Nations reserve. Want to return the family homestead to its former rightful owners now, Kemo Sabe? (I did warn you I'd BTDT soooo many times....)
Far more asylum seekers actually arrive in Canada by plane and land-crossing each year to claim refugee status than by perilous sea journey, but they don't usually turn up on the public radar, Watson said.
"There's certainly that dramatic fashion about a boat arrival that seems to stir up a dramatic response in the way that other types of arrivals simply don't," he said of the public's current opinionated reaction, with some people bluntly suggesting the migrants aren't wanted here.
And of course it's only a figment of your imagination, but feel free to start unsubstantiated rumours. Should play out interestingly if the CBC picks it up eh?
According to media reports each passenger paid $45,000 for the ride on the ship.
The Canadian government allowed them in and the big question we have to ask did our government accept a kickback for jumping to the front or was it just compassionate reasons
Why else would our government accept the boatload of Tamil tigers a terrorist group into Canada especially after the last boatload back in November?
Actually you said...
So, when you asked yourself, what do you say?
Do you have some proof they were all LTTE?
Because the last time I checked, they didn't wear a big Tiger patch to indicate what their political affiliation was.
That is usually determined by due process, once the Gov't has allowed them to land.
I was just pondering on why the our government let them in considering the last ship back in November
Nothing to ponder, for one, no civilized, humane country would deny help to ordinary people in desperate straits of health and hunger. #2 if they were turned away the perpetrators would never be properly dealt with. I personally think this is situation calling for U.N. involvement on all fronts, administering to the victims and dealing with miscreants. I'm just not sure exactly what it is U.N. does do.
The Conservative party is losing its conservative values
The old Conservative party would have sent the ship back
I never imagined the great Conservative party would turn into *****s and wimps this is why Conservative hardliners are retiring early
The children have been given over to Social Services which to me is a horrible thing for the government to do[/B]. The poor little ones being taken away from their parents in a strange land must be terrified. If these people have been found to have done nothing wrong in their own country and are not Tamil Tigers and if they can support themselves why not just welcome them to their new country. I don't want them here just to leech on the system but if they can support themselves (there is no TB in any of them by the way) and if they are here to live AS CANADIANS, we have room.
JLM, I just don`t think it`s right to pull these frightened children away from their parents in a strange land. I realize the parents have to be cleared of wrong doing but surely there must be a way that at least a couple of Moms could be in a place with the children. Are they going to make these children live away from their parents for the months it will take to process the parents. It`s wrong.
Do we get rid of the Tamil problem first, or the Muslim?
What is your preferred method? Gassing, bullet, starvation?
so, what order would you all like to get rid of people? Do we get rid of the Tamil problem first, or the Muslim? What is your preferred method? Gassing, bullet, starvation?
Hmm.. how about just letting in only good people?
Some complain that we need immigration because the locals don't reproduce enough, but if the locals are gong-heads, then if they die out that's actually a good thing.
If we let in only good people, and if the gong-heads die out, that improves the nation.
