Opinion: Canadians Want a Prime Minister Who Takes Care of our Own People First

Today in Montreal, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau took a few questions from the press. One of them was about a rally that is being held today in Quebec City. The rally is in response to the 6,000+ illegal immigrants who have been pouring across the Canadian border in the last few weeks.

A Culture Worth Respecting

Trudeau took the time to criticize and bash what he calls the “small majority of angry, frustrated racists.” The people who are protesting today have seen what is happening at our border, and in countries around the world and want to see our laws respected and protected. We want to see our values, and our culture protected by the government.

What Trudeau doesn’t seem to get is that Canadians want to have a Prime Minister who takes care of our own people first, our working poor, indigenous peoples and our homeless people before welcoming any more refugees.

Since Justin Trudeau is so quick to call out “racists”, I want to know why he won’t call the people committing terrorist attacks across the world what they are: Radical Islamic Terrorists.

Call Out Poor Behavior

Any group, that seeks to promote hate against Jews, Indigenous people, Muslims, LGBTQ+ folks, women, children, people of color, Christians or any other group of Canadians deserves to be called out.

Whether it’s ANTIFA, the KKK, or any other group that seeks to discriminate or marginalize any group of people needs to be condemned in the strongest possible terms.

Those of us who love our country, love our freedoms, and who seek to ensure that the human rights of all individuals are respected need to stand shoulder to shoulder and fight back against any groups that seek to undermine Canadian values.

Prime Minister Trudeau, please do your job and protect our borders and our people.

  • While I can understand the position taken by the author, I feel I must interject.
    This country was built by immigrants, that's what makes Canadians so diverse. Unlike our neighbours to the south, we have taken a much more humanitarian view on the world. We accept them all, treat them with respect, and teach them that you can be diverse, tolerant and INCLUSIVE. I do not think that this should be done at the expense of our more needy citizens. We need to strike a balance, take care of our own, AND accept new comers. Yes there will be changes, some good, some not, but in the end we will find a balance that works for everyone.
    Perhaps we need to examine why there is such a "mass migration" in the first place, and whether we are actively participating in the cause.
    That is what makes Canada the best country in the world!

    • ivar Plavinskis. I agree with your comment "this country was built by immigrants". These immigrants from the past WANTED to become Canadians in every sense of the world. They didn't come here looking for free handout and telling us to change to THEIR customs. There is a big difference here and JT has crossed the bounds in this regard. Yes we are a caring nation but we are NOT idiots and nor should be allow our boarders to be open allowing God only knows what to cross into our "currently" safe country. JT has created more division then any leader I know and can't wait to get him voted out.

  • First of all most Canadians fully endorse immigration and are a compassionate people by nature because we are a nation of immigrants. Clearly the concerns Canadians have are not with immigration through the normal legal channels but rather with the flood of illegal migrants simply walking across our border from the USA ,none of which will have been vetted . Illegal migration serves the best interest of no one and it is extremely unfair to those people who have made application through normal legal channels to enter our country . Our legal boundaries define our sovereign nation and were created out of necessity and or the need for security . Any country that decides to no longer enforce their immigration or border laws will very quickly no longer have a country or at least none that is worth a dam.

    • I think we should have a canadian vote about immigration. From watching and listening I believe more people are fed up with the whole deal and BS the few are pushing. When you don't agree with immigration on such a level as we have , you are considered a racist. I for one would knock your teeth out if you said it to my face. I for one would like to see my tax dollar go towards our VETS first then healthcare, better rds to drive on etc. Not when some do gooder sponsers a immigrant family for 1 year then dump them on the taxpayer. Sponsor them on your own dollar and if ya cant don't do it. I know to many seniors livein on next to nothin after workin 40 years in this country, and a new family comes that never worked a day in Canada and gets a whole pile more to live on. Immigrants from years ago kissed the ground in Canada when they arrived and worked there asses off to make a life here. They were not givin handout from the goverments but work hard and made it and raised the Canadian flag. Not the flag of the land they came from.
