Kenney continues his crusade against the people he feels he doesn't want in Canada.
Today's target: Haitian orphans who have been adopted by Canadians.
Instead of approaching the Haitian Government to fast-track paperwork to fly these tots out (as the Netherlands did), Kenney prefers to call the Dutch action "kidnapping". He "cleared" a tiny handful of orphans through the Canadian part of the process (ones already cleared to leave Haiti). Big whoopie!
What an idiot.
Kenney goes on to say how "generous" our family unification class of immigration is (he claims it is the most generous in the world), which is total bullshit. The USA has a much more welcoming immigration policy when it comes to family reunification, and they are miles ahead of us (decades?) when it comes to the lottery system for green cards.
Getting married in a couple of weeks, our "friendly" policy/government has rejected the visitor visas for some of my fiance's family members (maternal cousins). Can't attend a wedding. A bloody "visit", not staying or anything. They were accused of trying to "queue-jump", since they had previously applied for immigration. Oh yeah. One more thing: they happen to be South Asian/Indian. It's not "preferred nation status" when it comes to immigration under this Conservative Government. If they were a majority religion, and perhaps from a different lattitude, their luck may have been different.
Jason Kenney. Keep up the hypocritical work! Your talking out of two sides of your pie-hole may "curry" favor with some minority quarters (mostly from your "preferred" groups). There are even morons in my own community who continue to jump at the opportunity to pose for pics with you when you slither into town... Opportunists know no bounds... Heck some of them are even MPs in your caucus. Earning their "keep" within their ridings by being THE conduits for immigration "letters" for their own groups of friends and networks...
Not really holding my breath for you to resign. You'll lose your job (though not your seat) in the coming "crimson tide".
Farewell, my not-so-worthy nemesis! May the door to the House not hit even one quarter of your posterior on the way out...
