"I've expressed our government's disappointment with the Ontario government's recent decision to reinstate health-care benefits to all asylum seekers and even rejected refugee claimants," Alexander said.Alexander's rant demonstrates clearly the mean spiritness that permeates the Harper regime one that while plays to their narrow base does not reflect the views of the majority of Canadians, which is why in addition to Ontario, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Quebec and Nova Scotia have all stepped into the breach to offer similar coverage.
"Simply arriving on our shores and claiming hardships isn't good enough. This isn't a self-selection bonanza, or a social program buffet."
As bad as this is, it gets worse Alexander then went on to say "When it comes to our federal government's refugee reform, there is no room for disagreement," Which in my mind can only mean STFU and do as we say. That their word is god, there is no longer room in this country for dissent.
I know many say the Conservatives are fascists and while they do display fascist tendencies, I have resisted going there, it gets harder to maintain that stance with each passing day. If we are not careful that nightmare just may become a reality.
