L’afflux de demandeurs d’asile à la frontière canadienne ne connaît pas de répit, tant et si bien que les nouveaux arrivants sont maintenant accueillis au stade olympique de Montréal.
“They didn’t say yes, but they certainly didn’t say no, and they sounded positive,” he said, adding it’s possible an announcement could be made during Trudeau’s visit.
“I wanted to go to China to enhance the flow of people, notably tourists,” he said. “Other ministers will go for trade or investment, and the prime minister will be there in just a few weeks on all of these things together.”
I am 100% against the offensive and oppressive edict from the Conservative government that muslim women who, as an act of faith, choose to cover their faces must remove their niqab to take the oath of citizenship.
I have heard no good argument in favour of this measure. There are other ways of confirming identity, and their are other ways to accommodate the very few new Canadians with this particular religious conviction. This move is based neither in principle nor in necessity. The Tories have an axe to grind, and they don’t care if they chip away at our freedom of religion.
This is too beautiful:
“J’en appelle aujourd’hui à une désobéissance civile”, déclare-t-il à France 24. “Je voudrais dire aux femmes de ne pas avoir peur de sortir voilée intégralement.

In their quest to shuffle around the Canadian Immigration policy, I hope the Conservatives do not make family unification more difficult for Canadians.
As far as I am concerned, family reunification should be the top priority over and above any social engineering to increase the Canadian workforce. Strong families breed responsible people. People who want to unite their relatives demonstrate family values that I think are more honorable than any other. I would rather live among such people than take a gamble with over-educated unmarried foreigners.
