    Thank you, Prime Minister Trudeau.

    OTTAWA — As President Trump’s executive order on immigration stranded people around the world and provoked condemnation, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada took to social media to restate the country’s open-door policy.

    “To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith,” Mr. Trudeau wrote on Twitter on Saturday afternoon. “Diversity is our strength.”

    Unfortunately he is wrong to state this as we have the "Safe Third Country Agreement", which means Canada cannot accept refugees if they have already been in America and rejected. I cant say I am against his position for certain, motivated and talented refugees, but his statement is very broad and potentially unsustainable. I want to help those in need as much as the next person, but it has to be done properly and reasonably.

    Furthermore, this is a hot potato for Trudeau. Canadas economy is in the tank, expected to drop two places in world rankings within two years and a few more the decade after, while debt piles up. We have little to offer the world outside of resources and it's about to get much tougher trading with America. If this is the battle that he chooses to draw a line in the sand on while Canadians are struggling to even heat their homes in Ontario, his party is going to get rocked federally and provincially.

    If Canada would have embraced the Rule of Law, right to self determination and individual liberty we would have excelled like never before the last 30 years,. This collective hierarchy, socialist, nepotism, quasi-communism, crony capitalist system. has impacted Canadians today like never before and it is going to be glaringly embarrassing when juxtaposed to the American system, especially when regulations and taxes go down for U.S businesses.

    That's his choice. We don't want them.

    Turd-eau is in the pocket of Globalists therefore he floods Canada with fake "refugees" as he is ordered to do. He is destroying that beautiful country. I guess we will need a wall on the Canadian border also if he keeps bringing terrorists over.

    Perhaps we could allow him to take our illegals. It would solve our problem and make him happy. Win win.
