  1. Is it really an American telling Canadians how they should run their country? That is amazing since Americans have serious issues of their own that is far from being rectified. Thanks for informing us that we have an American expert on Canadian politics amongst us.
  2. Do you know this to be fact? How can you make such a blanket statement so please prove it.
  3. And what is your point? Do you know who Harper supporters are or are they supportive of Conservative policies?
  4. Unions have never been able to organize banks ... bank staff shows them out the door. Ever wonder why bank staff prefers to remain non union?
  5. Then what benefit would spying be since spying does not have anything to do with control. If it has, please explain to the rest of us but I doubt you will because you can't.
  6. Her body, hers alone to decide. Yes it sucks, welcome to the one thing women can lord over a male , ya know apart from that parking thing Quote Okay I buy that but if she chooses to keep the child why does the male suddenly have responsibility? After all it is her body and her right then so should the child she brings into this world. If the male is not considered when it comes to abortion as it is her right & right alone .. then same should apply when she alone decides to keep the baby. Is this not a double standard?
  7. A woman's right to abortion, yes if her life is threatened or that of the baby or raped - then I agree she should have it. To use abortion as a form of birth control, then she should pay for it and not the taxpayer. To abort because the fetus is the not desired gender ... I do not agree and if she chooses to do so, then she should pay for that privilege. Hypothetical questions? * Woman wants to abort the child but the male doesn't & would like to keep the child and raise it. Does she still have that right to abort because in essence in order to become pregnant it takes two to tango so she should no longer be a sole decision as another person is now involved. * The woman wants to keep the child, but the male doesn't for various reasons. She has the baby and he is then made to make child support payments whether he can afford it or not. And she can also deny him visitation or being part of the child's life as her right. Does the male not have any rights outside of the sperm & pocketbook? If we take equality seriously as is chanted by women activists - where is the equality in this instance? The fact that she permitted a sperm to enter her body she has given up some rights Your take on these questions will be interesting.
  8. Can you please provide more details and a link?
  9. Rue - the Immigration & Refugee Board would love to have these scumbags deported but the scum have dozens of loopholes and avenues of appeal. Often the home country does not want these people back and will not issue travel documents and if no other country will accept the deportee then that person can become stateless and we are forced to keep them here. Also, these people are protected under our Charter of Rights & Freedoms whether or not they are Canadians. Why do you think that Canada is known among criminals as the #1 country to which to flee. Hello!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  10. That is not the point justcrowing, you posted the material as if it were your own. It's not. Unless Thelonious had noted this, I wouldn't have known.I have reported your post to the moderator. ---- I don't think we allow people into Canada based on their perceived value to Canada. In fact, I don't know how we allow people into this country: the process is largely arbitrary at this point. I started another thread on this issue but I guess this is the place to be. I wanted to separate the issue of worldwide Islamist terrorism from our immigration policies. Our immigration law and regulations have undergone increasingly useless changes since 1976, and government bureaucrats have less and less control over the process. In a world where a plane ticket to cross the Atlantic costs a few hundred dollars, anybody can travel. Moreover, it is almost impossible to refuse someone entry, and basically impossible to deport them. It would take a federal government with nerves of steel to confront all of this. If Harper forms a majority government with a coalition of MPs outside of the urban centres, and those MPs would have to have the courage to withstand despicable charges from the English-Canadian media. Canada accepts immigrants now in three broad groups: family class, refugees, skilled workers. First of all, any suggestion of limiting immigration just means refusing skilled workers. The family class and refugee groups are basically out of anyone's control. At most, the bureaucrats can delay the processing. So, calls to "restrict immigration numbers" is no solution. Instead, I think family should be restricted to spouse and kids under 18 - that's it. Family class should not include parents or anyone else. This breaks the cornerstone of the 1976 law (family reunification) but so what. The whole refugee processing system has to thrown out. To do it right, it would probably take use of the notwithstanding clause. All refugees, without exception, must be processed abroad. In addition, the appeals procedure must be revamped. In the case of family class, with a sponsor in Canada, not much can probably be done. But the current refugee appeal process is Kafkaesque. I agree Argus that we should be more circumspect about importing a potential problem. I'd do away with the live-in nanny programme. It has been the source of so many, many problems. We can't simply refuse people because they are Muslim or Atheist or Left-Handed, nor would we want to. But it must be easier to refuse someone if there's a doubt. I have never bought into this "we need immigrants to pay for all the retiring babyboomers". But there's something wonderful that Australia, Canada and the US are countries that welcome foreigners and give them citizenship. Well August I missed posting the link & fleebag posted it but he also should have commented on the story rather than create an issue - my intent was not to post as my own but admittedly I did use the words former government as the article is not dated and would have referred to it. Is the current government ready to deal with the immigration problem? If not, then in all probability it is best to leave things as they are. I believe some groups have had their fund raising cut off and the latest round up proves the current government is trying to do something positive. Right now Canada has more jobs that workers to fill them - with all this immigration, why do you think these jobs remain unfilled? Not all jobs are for skilled workers nor are all immigrants skilled workers. So why the numbers on welfare?
  11. So Fleabag do you agree or disagree with the article? Be my guest and tell us how we can allow this as this happened under the noses of the previous government. No I do not troll, I merely post if and when I choose to - why should that be a problem to you?
  12. How did the former Canadian Government respond to the hard facts brought to light by the Canadian Secret Intelligence Service, that more than 50 militant groups such as the Al Qaeda group of Osama bin Laden, Hamas, Hezbollah, the Tamil Tigers, Sikh militants, as well as former war criminals from Rwanda, Bosnia and other genocide bearing countries continue to find safe haven and carry out their fund raising activities within Canada? Moreover, can it not be argued that Canada’s immigration refugee policies, which permit unconditional entry into the country of thousands of undocumented claimants each year, create increased risk to our national security? We must consider adapting a tougher and a far more costly approach to the management of undocumented refugee claimants by detaining a greater number of such individuals until sufficient and timely security and medical background verifications can be completed. Under current practice, refugee claimants are readily admitted (without medical testing) after meeting a minimal threshold screening process at the port of entry. Security background checks are only initiated after a refugee claimant has been approved. In the US and Australia, undocumented asylum seekers are detained under mandatory legislation. Detention of undocumented refugee claimants although permissible under existing Canadian law, is rarely used. Proposed reforms allowing for “front-loaded” security screening of refugee claimants must be used in tandem with increased detentions for undocumented claimants. It is at the stage of initial entry where refugee claimants pose the greatest security risks. Under current immigration policy, mandatory security background screening is carried out for individuals seeking permanent entry to Canada. Applicants for non-immigrant visas seeking admission to visit, study or work in Canada, are generally not subject to any security background screening. Individuals from designated countries are required to obtain an entry visa and to demonstrate as a condition of visa issuance, a likelihood to leave Canada upon the expiry of the visa. The developments in the United States would now seem to justify the need to introduce security background screening measures for selected non-immigrant visa seekers.
  13. Why not state clearly that one is not interested in dating or other involvement and to let this talk serve as a warning that persistence will lead to a formal complaint. If the person continues to ask for a date, then you have given warning and now have cause for action. Otherwise, quit whining and find another job if you can't face someone who is being offensive to yoiu. In future, refuse to dance, dine, have coffee or associate in any way other than for business matters in a professional way.
  14. Big jump in Liberal support & what have yee bin smokin' darlin ??? May 23, 2006 Conservatives Surge To 43% Support Nationally – Level Not Seen Since Mulroney Government In November Of 1988 http://www.ipsos-na.com/news/pressrelease.cfm?id=3087 A few involved in Adscam? Wooohoooo!!! a few were caught and exposed but then there are those like Chretien who know how to cover their tracks [anyone remember Shawinigate?}
  15. In a Liberal minded society, one is not responsible for their actions - it is everyone else's fault .... Doncha know it is our right to get drunk and kill while drinking & driving but your fault because I drank too much. Wonder what excuse is made for raping a baby? How was this baby at fault as a victim to give the assailant his right to rape? Sick! Sick! Sick!!
  16. The Immigration officials did their jobs in ordering deportation as did others on the board, but the Federal Judge who is probably a bleeding heart Liberal is not doing his. Even the Liberal biased media seem to think this guy should stay in Canada. Poor baby!! He never spent one day in jail but only had house-arrest - big deal!! Tell that to all his victims on whose backs he became rich. We once also protected a mass murderer from the States for crimes he was wanted for to stand trial in the U.S - what did Canada do - say no to an extradition. Eventually, several immigration officials quietly arranged for the Americans to pick this creep up as they handed him over at the border. They did this so families who have lost loved ones could have some closure. But hey, Canadians say, screw the victims and protect the criminal - ooops, my stomach is churning!!
  17. And most of our politicians are lawyers ///// Trudeau, Chretien, Martin, Mulroney, Dosanjh, and I am sure you know the rest. And these are the politicians that select the Judges. Are we back to square one yet? LOL
  18. Then if Judges have their hands tied - who are the legal beagles that write the laws? lawyers who later became judges; current lawyers? Methinks laws are designed by lawyers to keep them perpetually employed. :angry:
  19. It's all about feministic brainwashing!! I am me and do not live under the shadow of a man so must be called "Ms" - funny how these same women will fight for the shadow of the male pocketbook when it comes to divorce - suddlenly independence disappears. Oh well!! I have my tin hat on so let the bullets fly.
  20. Liberals would support the devil if they knew the devil would provide them votes. Only in Canada!!
  21. This man knew what the laws of his country were when he engaged in criminal activities and now the poor baby wants his life spared ... send the sucker back - if you do the crime then do the time!! If this creep did not have the blood money to fight his deportation, he would have been gone a long time ago. Is it any wonder Canada is becoming a haven for criminals??? Sheesh!! wake up & we allow this creep to walk freely in Canada just because he is rich or what?? !! http://www.cbc.ca/story/canada/national/20...eportation.html Federal Court stays deportation of China's most wanted man Last Updated Thu, 01 Jun 2006 14:05:08 EDT CBC News A Federal Court judge in Ottawa has stayed the deportation of Lai Changxing, China's most wanted man who is accused of bribing Chinese officials and smuggling $10 billion worth of goods. Justice Carolyn Layden-Stevenson said Lai should be allowed to remain in Canada while he launches further appeals to the federal deportation order — a process likely to take many months or longer. His lawyer has said he will appeal the deportation to the United Nations if necessary. Lai, a billionaire who has been living in Vancouver and fighing the deportation order for years, claims he will be killed if he was deported back to China. He maintains he is just a fall guy in China's crackdown on corruption, but Canada's Immigration Department has ruled he is a fugitive and not a refugee. China said he is guilty of tax evasion and bribery. Chinese officials says Lai's company was a front for a $10 billion smuggling operation. His headquarters, the government alleges, was a pleasure palace where prostitutes entertained government officials. One top customs officer, and even Lai's own brother, testified against him. But his lawyer says their statements were obtained under threat of torture. Canada has received diplomatic assurances that Lai will be spared execution. But Chinese Premier Zhu Rongji has said Lai ought to be executed. Fourteen people have already been sentenced to death in the smuggling scandal and Lai is convinced he will be killed in prison if Canada deports him.
  22. Probably for the same reason people stop at a roadside accident and watch victims hauled off on a stretcher.
  23. Taxes! At first I thought this was funny... Then, I realized "How True it is!!" Tax his land, Tax his wage, Tax his bed in which he lays.
