Let us be clear, we are NOT against immigration, in fact, we support the LEGAL immigration for ANYONE who wants to come to Canada to integrate into our society and economy, to those who want to share our values, ideology and way of life, to those who want to join us as Canadians, we welcome you.

Canada has many immigrants, some who just arrived, others who have been here for longer. Many, if not most, Canadians can trace their family heritage to another part of the world. This coming together had made Canada great. It is important to remember however that the families that came to Canada did so to build a better life, they left their countries behind and while respecting their own heritage, they integrated into Canadian society, culture and life. They mingled with other Canadians and together built a shared ideology. Many became soldiers to defend this great country, in some cases sacrificing their life so the rest of us can live safely. 

This immigration worked because it happened over time, and the people moving here did so with something to bring to the table, most did not take any help from the government to come here. These people came towards something, they were not running away from something, they were carefully vetted before being allowed to immigrate here, often at their own expense.

With Mr. Trudeau's tweet #WelcomeToCanada our borders were flooded with illegal immigrants trying to enter Canada at a huge cost to Canadian Tax Payers, well over $1 billion and counting.

Europe is facing a migrant crisis right now, their lack of vetting the migrants led to a serious increase in crime, rape and violence. The people who came in show no effort to integrate into society and many of them would rather collect a government handout than look for employment. What we see here in Canada is an equal mentality, with demands for us to adjust to their way of life instead of the other way around.

Helping others can be a noble task, but aren't our resources better allocated to helping our own? Telling our veterans who laid their life and well being on the line so the rest of us can be safe that they are asking for too much and later cutting their benefits even further is unacceptable. Just like when you're in an airplane and the masks drop down, take care of your own before you help others, because if we are fighting for our lives, we are no good to anyone else.

As a final thought, would you let a stranger into your home, around your family and your children without getting to know them first? Probably not, and to those who say otherwise, remember that we are not just letting them in, we are giving them our hard earned money, a key, and sending a message that we will change our house rules to better suit them.
