Walling off Canada too?

LETTER

It looks as though President Trump will have to build a second wall on the Canadian border. With the ultra-left liberal Trudeau as prime minister, Canada is on its way to being a basket case like so many European countries.

Canada is taking in “refugees” hand over fist, paying them $1500 living costs and $2100 child benefits each month for a total of $43,000 per annum of Canadian taxpayers’ money. To put that into perspective, the annual average wage in Canada is $27,000. Trudeau has said he will take all “refugees” that America has refused.

Because he wants to be the poster boy for climate change and social justice, his green power generation schemes are crippling pensioners in Canada. Monthly bills for hydro power are reaching up to $1000, and retirees are having to give up their homes.

A quote from Mr Trudeau in 2011: “Honour killings shouldn’t be called barbaric.”

Take heed, if this can happen in Canada, it can happen anywhere.

(Canadian) 'Refugees do not get more financial help from the federal government than Canadian pensioners do. A widely circulated email makes this false claim. The email mistakenly includes the one-time start-up payment as part of the monthly payment. The amount of monthly financial support that government-assisted refugees get is based on provincial social assistance rates. It is the minimum amount needed to cover only the most basic food and shelter needs.' http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/helpcentre/answer.asp?qnum=105&top=11

'Ontarians pay steeper rates for their power than any other province, and a decade’s worth of policy choices have made it that way ... Electricity prices in Ontario have soared in the past decade. Since 2006, the top rate for power has risen four times as fast as inflation. The problem has aggravated voters, piled on costs for business – particularly factories and other industrial enterprises – and remained one of the most persistent hot buttons for the province’s politicians.' http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/why-does-electricity-cost-so-much-in-ontario/article33453270/

'Trudeau took the government to task, however, for using the term "barbaric" and said an official government publication should make an "attempt at responsible neutrality." He said the acts are "absolutely unacceptable" and that's not a matter of debate, but the language chosen by the government to describe them is objectionable ...' http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/trudeau-retracts-barbaric-remarks-1.985386
