Since they're moving here,

we may as well start moving there. The pay may not be great but that's where the jobs are going. Heck...maybe soon enough the illegals here will find that the grass wasn't greener after all.

Another option is

go after the jobs the illegals are doing in America....

Most "Americans" couldn't (wouldn't even try to) live on the money the illegals make while working (physical labour/low paying jobs) in America....Yet the illegals seem to survive and send some money home to the family.

Even Trump can't find Americans to hire...they don't want to work anything less than a full year...no 8 month a year jobs for them.....When I was working construction...I would have been happier than a pig in **** to be guaranteed 8 months a year of work.

Not to worry....those 'refugees' that Canada

is taking will either be taking jobs Canadians don't want or they'll be on your welfare roles soon. Will their newborn babies be given Canadian citizenship automatically or will they all have to be deported at government expense at some point?

So,

the refugees that Canada is taking in from the Middle East crisis will be on welfare in your country at tax payer expense..........AND, you have no problem with 'immigration' as long as it's not in your backyard because your plan is to 'catapult' them somewhere else. Cool....

RE:AND, you have no problem with 'immigration'
AND, you have no problem with 'immigration' as long as it's not in your backyard

RIGHT... I have NO problem with immigration...and it IS in my backyard.

These people will bring innovation/diversity to the country...some will be entrepreneurs, some will be workers...some won't....much the same makeup of the country at the present time. The population in my province and the entire Atlantic provinces is on the decline...more people are needed.

because your plan is to 'catapult' them somewhere else

AND they will have "landed immigrant" status. Get it "landed Immigrant"?

It's a JOKE Boy!!!!! I say...It's a joke. (Foghorn Leghorn)

Have you ever helped YOUR neighbour?...WHY?

refugees coming from a terrorist country

are NOT my 'neighbors', JP.....they are more 'illegals' being dumped here, and yet you call them 'These people will bring innovation/diversity to the country...some will be entrepreneurs, some will be workers...some won't', which is utterly ridiculous. You are already talking as if those people will be staying forever, much like OUR illegal issues here. They aren't coming with legal visas that will be ignored when they expire.....they're coming at the invitation of your government with no way to know if they are embedded terrorists, but what the hell....house, feed, and support them anyhow until they become "Boston bombers" all over again and then be 'disappointed' that they didn't assimilate like you thought they would.

Holy crap....good luck with THAT.

MY actual neighbors I help regularly......because I already KNOW who they are and what they stand for.

You do? You're the exception to the rule.

Do you ever wonder how people commit a crime and their neighbor says..."I never expected them of doing that."

I guess THEY don't do a profile on their neighbor like you do.

They run from a terrorist country and you're suspicious of them BECAUSE?

You're paranoid?


You've never given to any organization that COULD have been being ripped off by some shysters? Then you've never given.

That's right...they aren't here on a "visa" So there is nothing to "expire"


They''ll become CITIZENS...

Refugees are coming from a terrorist country

because they are fleeing the terrorists. Just like the kids coming from Central America. We created those terrorists on both continents with invading Iraq and not having better laws dealing with drug addictions.

Some reading for you
Perhaps you could give this link to Trump, when he is shaking your hand

There’s a long list of things Canada does better than the United States, and one of them is immigration. Both think of themselves as countries built by immigrants – and the similarities end there.

In Canada, immigration is smooth, legal, economically beneficial and designed to welcome newcomers as future citizens. South of the 49th parallel, in contrast, legal immigration is actually quite low, and far below Canadian levels. But millions of non-legal, non-citizens labour in the U.S. underground economy, unable to fully join American society, vote or become citizens, while providing ammunition for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign of resentment and wall-building to keep out “illegals.”

We'll send some more your way then

I hope those Mexicans like becoming popsicles, since it's cold 8 months of the year there.

RE:since it's cold 8 months of the year there.

That's right...cold 8 months a year and tough sledding the other 4 months of the year....No wussies allowed up here.

LEGAL immigration is fine with 100% of our citizens, JP

ILLEGALS have ignored our laws with their first step across the border to enter here....HUGE difference. YOUR article actually states the same policies we already have here and have had it for hundreds of years......"In Canada, immigration is smooth, legal, economically beneficial and designed to welcome newcomers as future citizens. South of the 49th parallel, in contrast, legal immigration is actually quite low, and far below Canadian levels."

Our legal immigration laws have slowed way down BECAUSE of the illegals swarming here......in order to cope with the legal ones entering, we have had to slow down their applications to a level we have never seen before. Get the illegals gone, and the legals would again be welcomed quickly, just as before.

It may not be that they don't want to work less

than a full year. They just want to be paid a full year's wages if they work at all. Our entitlement system provides just enough for most to eke by without lifting a finger and our "workfare" system doesn't really provide much incentive to find real work.

I don't know who's here illegally and who is not but I do know that such jobs as roofing, landscaping, and other seasonal labor needs don't employ many folks who speak English. I also know entire communities that were once of ethnic European people are now Hispanic. My own first childhood years were spent in a Czech community in Cicero, Illinois. That place is Spanish speaking now. Interestingly, they've kept the place up quite well...and maybe better than the poor Czechs who were there 100 years ago.

I don't have an answer for the illegal immigration problem here but I do think it's something our political leadership has been party to by not enforcing the laws that were in place from the beginning. I also believe it would be a different matter if votes weren't involved and power couldn't be lost by not gathering those votes. We, the citizens, are as much to blame as are those we've put into office. It took a long time to get to where we are and there's no quick and painless way to get back, IMO.

The wall that Trump wants to build to keep Mexicans from crossing to the US just might keep them from crossing back when there's no further need for roofers and gardeners here.

There's an app for that...work 8 months get the wages paid out over 12 months.

or planned collection

of unemployment benefits. Teacher who work 9-10 months will spread their salaries over the whole year. I don't know what that does beneficially other than to force themselves to be disciplined financially.
