“I am a Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way, free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, or free to choose those who shall govern my country. This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind.” ~~ John G. Diefenbaker

FELDSTED: Canadians have a right to expect an orderly process – not the chaos which led Trudeau taking to twitter and another stupid tweet; a taunt to US President Trump

Justin Trudeau is warning voters to be wary of fear-mongering about immigration, suggesting the issue will be a hot-button topic during the federal election campaign this fall ... made the prediction Thursday during a town hall meeting in northern New Brunswick ...

Trudeau's upbeat tone changed when he suggested the world has become increasingly fearful, insular and anxious about immigration ...

 ... people trying to create fear, intolerance and misinformation about immigration across Canada, he said, though he did not name any individuals or groups.

CLICK HERE for the full story:

Canadians are not, and never have been, fearful of immigrants or immigration. 

We are, however, less tolerant of ineptitude and stupidity. Trudeau’s off-the-cuff decision to rush in 40,000 Syrian refugees to Canada, based on seeing a photo of a drowned boy in the newspaper, was a stupid, grandstanding play for a photo opportunity when the ink hadn’t even had a chance to dry on his Oath of Office. 

The incompetence came in when the government failed to bolster the Immigration and Refugee Department, to manage the sudden and unplanned arrival of close to 50,000 extra refugees.

Immediately following this chaos, Trudeau took to twitter with a taunt to US President Trump with another stupid tweet which has resulted in tens of thousands of illegal asylum seekers from the USA, and elsewhere around the world, swarming our borders.  It has also led to a complete breakdown of the Immigration Department and Refugee Board.

We have every right to be concerned over the rising numbers of illegal immigrants flooding over our borders, and government failure to bring order to our immigration system.

Canadians have every right to be concerned that the screening of illegal immigrants is not carried out thoroughly, given the shortage of manpower and pressure to move cases forward.

Canadians have a right to expect an orderly process of bringing in immigrants and refugees that we can afford and manage.

That is not what we have at present, so the questions has to be asked,
Why has there been no effort by this government to reduce the number of immigrants and refugees until the overload is processed?”

... the Safe Third Country Agreement, states that Canada is obliged to return refugees to the US if they make an asylum claim at a border checkpoint. There is a loophole, however: if anyone is found at an illegal crossing they are brought into Canada for questioning, where they can then apply for asylum.

Legitimate criticism of government ineptitude on immigration is not fear-mongering.  Therefore, Trudeau’s efforts to paint immigration criticism, as fear of immigrants, is a deceitful attempt at censorship.  That has also then been coupled with evading responsibility for the mess his government has created.

Don’t let him get away with it.

THE SIDEWINDER -- Just quit your constant damned whining and do something positive about it

  Living in a democracy is a wonderful thing, but it comes with responsibilities such as voting and being involved. When the dust settled on Saturdays (October 24 th ) BC election, less than two thirds of the eligible voters * took the time to vote - but the loudest bitchers will probably be among the more than one third of voters who sat on their asses and complained about how all politicians are crooks, etc. How many of you constant whiners have ever done anything close to becoming involved; or do you just like sniveling to hear your own voice? Are you one the arseholes who likes to take advantage of everything our democracy has to offer, without ever contributing anything? And I don't want to listen to your crap about paying taxes, blah, blah, blah. There's more to making democracy work than simply voting and then sitting back and let others carry the ball for you. Too many people seem unwilling to get involved - and follow-up - to make sure elected po

REPRINTED WITH PERMISSION : Canadian Mortgage Trends   Canadians need guidance with their mortgages ... t hat’s the takeaway from a national survey released this week by, which found half of Canadians aren’t aware of the mortgage options available to them. Not only that, but Canadians are lacking in some other basic mortgage trivia, with an astounding 9 out of 10 respondents not knowing that mortgage interest is charged semi-annually: 28% think interest is compounded monthly; 17% think it’s bi-weekly; 17% think it’s annually; 28% just have no idea. Should we be concerned? Dustan Woodhouse, President of Mortgage Architects, and a former active broker who has written multiple educational mortgage books, thinks so. “ Sounds about right. We know about what we pay attention to, i.e., The Kardashians ,” he wrote to CMT. “ The material concern in this is how easy it makes it for the government to over-regulate the industry, with c

AARON GUNN -- He is, at his core, an ideologue, meaning the facts of any particular issue don’t actually matter

Ben Isitt - City Councillor and Regional Director Victoria City Council and its resident-genius Ben Isitt is back with another dumb idea. Introducing a motion to ban the horse-drawn carriages that have coloured Victoria’s downtown streets for decades, calling them “an outdated mode of transportation”. Are you serious?   No one is actually commuting by horse and carriage. They are here for tourists and residents alike to interact with world-class animals and discover the magic and history of our provincial capital. It’s part of what gives Victoria its charm. And the truth is these horses are treated better than anywhere else in the world. They probably live better lives than many British Columbians.   And talk to anyone who works with these horses and they’ll all tell you the exact same thing: this is what the horses love to do. This is what they were bred for and trained for. This is what gives their lives purpose and meaning. But maybe we shouldn’t be su
