  • Anyone crossing the border illegally whose claim is rejected will be sent home, not back to U.S.

    Global News ^ | 02/23/2017 | Amy Minsky
    The men, women and children hiking over the Canada-U.S. border to seek asylum in Canada are risking more than freezing conditions – they’re cutting off all roads back to the United States and risk being sent back to the countries they fled. “Usually the U.S. is considered a safe place to seek asylum,” said Jacqueline Bonisteel, an associate at Corporate Immigration Law Firm in Toronto. “It’s a high risk, but for these people Canada seems to be a safer place to make a claim.” Every one of the dozens and dozens of asylum seekers who’ve recently arrived – and continue...
  • Trudeau Effect: Most Canadians Distrust Government for First Time in 17 Years

    breitbart ^ | FRANCES MARTEL
    A new poll finds that more Canadians distrust their government than trust it for the first time in 17 years, following a series of ethics scandals surrounding liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. The poll, part of a global survey known as the Edelman Trust Barometer, also found a profound distrust of the nation’s major institutions and elites, with nearly three in four Canadians responding that they trust leaked information more than they would trust information deliberately published by a corporation or institution. The Edelman poll finds that 43 percent of Canadians trust their government, with 57 percent saying they do...

    The other day we looked at a somewhat amusing story of people illegally crossing the border from the United States into Canada. The numbers remain only a tiny trickle compared to the flow of illegal aliens coming into the United States across our southern border, but the trend should still be worrying for Canadians. Or at least so you would think. This is not a view shared by the country’s prime minister it seems. When pressed by reporters, Justin Trudeau said that he has no intention of stopping people coming into his nation illegally. (Newsweek) Canada will continue to...

    Promises of lower taxes, decreased spending and balancing the books are not going to cut it. It’s NOT the economy, stupid! “It’s the economy, stupid!” The slogan, a variation of “the economy, stupid” coined by Democratic strategist political strategist James Carville worked well during the 1992 presidential election campaign. It helped Bill Clinton defeat incumbent George H.W. Bush who was seen as out of touch with the problems of ordinary people. In the early 1990s, the United States was hit with a mild recession and the economy was instrumental in making Bush Senior a one-term president.

    “It’s about to blow. I think there’s going to be confrontations.” A few weeks ago, President Donald Trump signed his executive order that halted immigration for only a few months and from only seven countries until the government could develop a better vetting process. These countries have high Islamic terrorism occurrences, so it makes sense for our national security, right? The left pounced on him, and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau put on a big show countering Trump’s actions. Trudeau said Canada will welcome everyone no matter their faith and blah blah blah. Well, the welcoming spirit has started to...

    A fourteen-year-old Canadian girl has been sexually assaulted by a Syrian migrant. (video) It was supposed to be a night of innocent fun and giddy excitement — her first high school dance — but for one girl at New Brunswick’s Fredericton High School, the night would go on to haunt her well after the last song was played. The young girl’s mother (who asked that she and her daughter have their identities protected) reached out to TheRebel.Media. She told us that her daughter was approached by two Syrian migrants who are enrolled at the Canadian high school. Both attempted to...

    During Sunday’s Good Morning America, ABC finally became worried about “skyrocketing” illegal immigration and the strain on resources. But it was not illegal immigration into the United States they were fretting about, but that into Canada. “Illegally crossing the border, fueled by fears after recent immigration raids and uncertainty over President Trump's executive order,” announced co-anchor Dan Harris during the opening tease, “Can Canada handle this new influx?” “Yeah, we're watching scenes of immigrants and their families, with young children, fleeing the U.S., crossing illegally, all hoping to begin the process of emigrating there as refugees,” co-anchor Paula Faris reiterated...

As a U.S. Customs and Border Patrol officer seized their passports and questioned a man in the front passenger seat of a taxi that had pulled up to the border in Champlain, New York, four adults and four young children fled the cab and ran to Royal Canadian Mounted Police on the other side. One by one they scrambled across the snowy gully separating the two countries. RCMP...

Now every time the Bay posts on Twitter a new outfit she likes, Dexter reminds the department store she won't be buying it. The resident of Wakefield, Que., also tweets messages to the Bay such as, "You are looking worse and worse. Get on the right side of history by dumping #Trump brand."

    As cities across Ontario finalize their budgets and try to squeeze out savings to expand public transit, something doesn't add up. Too many cities, including Toronto, are missing out on hundreds of millions in savings. That's because Ontario has a labour law loophole that's putting cities, companies and taxpayers at a huge disadvantage. The heated debate over road tolls in Toronto has distracted from a far simpler way of saving for public transit expansion. Here it is: Change the way construction projects are tendered. Right now, Toronto and too many other municipalities including Hamilton, Sault Ste. Marie and the Region...

    While it seems like every major story on the planet involves the Trump administration, things have actually been rather interesting in the rest of the world. Under the leadership of former ski bum Justin Trudeau, our neighbor to the north seems to be embracing some of the values that have made Europe so inhospitable to its indigenous population. As Barbara Kay has explained both in print and other media, the proposed law by a Muslim MP targeting Islamophobia is simply a pretext to police inconvenient thought which happens to offend the political class. Keep in mind, the country was no...

It was a record number of arrivals for a single weekend in the small border town of Emerson, and Canadian officials said Thursday they are bracing for more. US...

    Canada is inching toward a broadly-based law that would codify “Islamophobia” as a hate crime without even defining Islamophobia or demonstrating that it is a phenomenon requiring legal action. A big question to bear in mind is why the “Islamophobia” motion was “unanimously” agreed upon in Parliament. What happened to the few Conservative members present? And to the interim leader of the Conservative Party of Canada, and official opposition, Rona Ambrose? Were they, too, intimidated into submission at the expense of Canadians? This incursion of Islamic supremacists and their allies and lapdogs peddling their wares into Canadian Parliament is a...

Bissonnette made a brief court appearance and did not enter a plea in the attack staged during evening prayers Sunday. Wearing a white prisoner jump suit, his...

There are of course conservatives who would not only like to see Justin Trudeau gone but replaced by a Trump-like successor. There is very little chance the latter will happen, at least in the foreseeable future.

Hussen said White House officials have offered assurances that...

Witnesses claimed the masked killers shouted 'Allahu Akbar' in what sounded like a Quebecois accent as they went on the rampage, killing six and leaving eight injured. Police have arrested two people with one said to be 'of...
