You should be livid!

The Recorder & Times (Brockville) - - OPINION -

Cana­di­ans have every rea­son to be livid at Justin Trudeau and his min­ions. I’ll just men­tion two rea­sons.

You will re­call Mis­sis­sauga-Erin Mills MP Iqra Khalid? She is the one who pro­moted M-103, the mo­tion which sought to en­shrine “Is­lam­o­pho­bia” into Canada’s le­gal sys­tem, mak­ing it a crime to crit­i­cize any as­pect of Is­lam.

By do­ing so, our pre­cious right to free­dom of ex­pres­sion would be in peril.

The sec­ond rea­son is the fed­eral gov­ern­ment’s mis­han­dling of il­le­gal im­mi­grants. On­tario is left hold­ing the bag for the cost of il­le­gal bor­der jumpers who were en­cour­aged to flee to Canada by Justin Trudeau. Trudeau sought to up­stage Don­ald Trump and he opened the flood­gates for il­le­gal bor­der jumpers.

It is es­ti­mated the cost to On­tario alone will be $72 mil­lion. Trudeau is of­fer­ing only $11 mil­lion to On­tario, to off­set this cost, just a tad more that given to Omar Khadr.

The com­bined cost to On­tario and Que­bec alone is es­ti­mated to be $290 mil­lion. How much other prov­inces and the feds will spend is un­known. What­ever that amount is, pos­si­bly a bil­lion or more, all of it is our tax dol­lars, com­ing out of our pock­ets!

In sum­mary, Trudeau is be­tray­ing Canada by fund­ing ter­ror­ism-re­lated groups, and by not en­forc­ing our bor­ders. If the gov­ern­ment wants to en­cour­age im­mi­gra­tion, then do what­ever is required to legally open the front door, but close the back door.

By his ac­tions, Trudeau has be­come a pup­pet, and Iqra Khalid seems to con­trol the strings. I be­lieve both should be shown the way out. Am I an­gry? You bet I am! If we do not solve our por­ous bor­der prob­lems our­selves, and if we do not con­strain our in­cli­na­tion to tol­er­ate in­tol­er­ance, then the Amer­i­cans might just do that job for us.
