‘Build that wall?’ Some Canadians are calling for more border control, too

This get-tough approach reflects public opinion surveys that show a hardening of attitudes among some Canadians toward the asylum seekers and immigration in general, placing political pressure on the government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Canadian news recently has been full of images of migrants trudging across snow-covered fields and through icy ditches, hauling small children and suitcases as they cross into Quebec, Manitoba and other provinces from U.S. border states. The phenomenon has gained momentum since Donald Trump was elected president in November.

Kevin O’Leary, a reality-TV celebrity and neophyte politician who has taken a Trumplike approach to his quest for the Conservative leadership, says illegal crossings are “unacceptable” and that Canada must beef up its border security to avert a flood of refugees. “I don’t want what’s happening in Europe to happen in Canada,” he said in a recent campaign video.

They have been lax, how else can you explain the dumping of billions of gallons of raw sewage. Even Trudeau said he is fine with dumping sewage, he wants the money spent elsewhere. This is why they should not be preaching to anyone else.

 

Being the partisan that you are, you refuse to address what Trump now wants to do to the ETA while blasting Canada. Yup, you're a hypocrite.

What a spectacular hypocrite you are, MM! If Canada has been lax in its environmental controls regarding water pollution then fine, it fully deserves criticism.

But YOU voted for Trump who is about to strip the ETA of massive funds, and yet not a word comes out of your mouth about it. It's virtually impossible for you to view anything without partisan glasses on, isn't it?

You can't possibly be calling out a world leader, any world leader, for spending too much of the taxpayer's money on trips while at the same time giving Trump a pass for spending millions EVERY WEEK.

Sewage flows into Toronto harbour regularly, says new advocacy group report

Sewage flows into Toronto's inner harbour regularly from nine "hotspots," states a new report from a local environmental advocacy group.

In a video released on Thursday, Lake Ontario Waterkeeper outlined the findings of 10 sampling trips in the harbour throughout the summer. Samples were tested for E. coli, a bacteria indicating the presence of sewage.

    Billions of litres of raw sewage, untreated waste water pouring into Canadian waterways

Two-thirds of the more than 160 samples collected failed to meet Ontario governmental standards for protection, the group said.

And, on one day, the team found E. coli levels near Bathurst Street and Queen's Quay West were 700 times higher than Ontario's swimming standards.

"The bacteria levels were off the charts," said Krystyn Tully, vice president of Lake Ontario Waterkeeper.

Exclusive: Almost half of Canadians want illegal border crossers deported - Reuters poll

Nearly half of Canadians want to deport people who are illegally crossing into Canada from the United States, and a similar number disapprove of how Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is handling the influx, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released on Monday.

 

Canadians appeared to be just as concerned about illegal immigration as American, according to the poll, which was conducted between March 8-9. Some 48 percent supported "increasing the deportation of people living in Canada illegally." (For graphics on asylum process, immigration poll

Wait until they find out how bad the weather and pollution is, they will be leaving Canada in droves.

 

That's rich coming from someone in the land of Trump who wants to slash the EPA. Take a look in your own backyard, buddy.

 

And, remember, YOU voted for him. Now you're about to gradually discover the environmental price for that vote.

 

Unfortunately, Canadians are going to suffer, too, from your science denying clown in office. There is already speculation about the impact on the drinking water for Ontarians because of proposed cutbacks on U.S. treatment of the water in the Great Lakes.

 

Hopefully politicians in the states by the Great Lakes will be able to fight Orange Top and Scott Pruitt to some degree.

TORONTO (Reuters) - Canada's border authorities detained more Mexicans in the first 67 days of 2017 than they did annually in any of the three previous years, according to statistics obtained by Reuters.

The spike comes immediately after Canada's federal government lifted its visa requirement for Mexican citizens in December.

Canada’s unemployment rate falls to 6.6%, the lowest level in more than 2 years

 

“This continues the string of improving Canadian economic data and suggests that the underlying economy continues to gain steam,” said BMO senior economist Benjamin Reitzes in a note to clients. “One more piece of evidence that the Canadian economy has turned the corner.”
