Little Asylum Center on the Prairie

Justin “Baby Doc” Trudeau is Canada’s newly-elected Liberal prime minister. Mr. Trudeau has vowed to bring 25,000 “Syrian” “refugees” into the country by the end of the year, and is exerting considerable political pressure in an effort to make sure his plan is implemented.

The new influx of migrants is not popular in all parts of Canada, especially out West. Our Saskatchewan correspondent Harald sends the following account of “refugee resettlement” from a Western Canadian perspective:

Saskatoon, the largest city in Saskatchewan, has a population of 300,000. It was a third of that size fifty years ago.

I’ve heard different figures when it comes to the number of refugees the city can expect. The ‘Open Door Society’ is the main organization here that is in charge of the plan. Saskatoon has about 20% visible minorities — mainly Canadian Indian and Metis [from the French métissage, a mixture of races], Chinese, and Filipinos.

Muslims make up 2 % of the religions, with 65% Christians, and 25% no religion. Brad Wall, the Premier of Saskatchewan, tried to speak up against Trudeau’s refugee plan, urging him to stop setting deadlines and going slower. Out of ten premiers he’s the “lone wolf”. Of all those premiers, Wall is the most popular, and has an approval rating around 65% .

Wall is the leader of the Saskatchewan Party — a combination of liberal and conservative principles. He’s not totally against having more people, but wants to ensure caution and security regarding whatever federal government plan that he has to deal with.

Wall said he’s willing to let 800 refugees into the province, but only if they are all properly vetted. They would settle in the four cities of the province — Saskatoon, Regina, Prince Albert, and Moose Jaw.

In Saskatchewan (according to one poll I saw), 35% don’t want any refugees, 35% are willing to take some but are against Trudeau’s setting deadlines as not being a safe practice, and 10% have no problem with accepting any refugees under any circumstances.

  1. That is a good picture of some Canadian brain dead. We have a lot of them. Unfortunately many were voting in the recent election, with a disastrous result.

    • Yes, no longer ‘holier than thou’ when talking about our American cousins! Not only to vote the twit in as PM, but a majority govt?!
      We (Canada) will rue the day our mentally challenged countrymen and women voted in this ultra-lightweight son of an evil, west-hating father; who, along with newly elected Alberta Premier Notley and US President Obama has struck a death blow to Canada’s oil industry and economic engine.
      Tens of thousands out of work already and more to come–it’s going to be a long, bitter winter….

      • We in the province of Ontario – what used to be the financial and manufacturing engine of Canada – have quite recently voted in someone who is essentially Trudeau’s dedicated henchman; someone who openly promoted the voting in of the new (Liberal) Federal government.
        Kathlene Wynne is in process of increasing our provincial debt from what it was, mostly due to her (Liberal) predecessor, to a level that makes it more than twice as high as the California debt. And this with one-third of the population of California. So our provincial per capita debt is now six times that of California… and rising.
        Long, bitter winter indeed…

      • “A long bitter Winter” our children and grandchildren. I imagine China will clean up after fill the void.

  2. Feel sorry for you beautiful people and beautiful country; not good days ahead, thanks to your highly PC leader.

  3. Perhaps all those people holding ‘Welcome’ signs live in Saskatoon’s outer leafy suburbs, far from the refugee resettlement areas in the inner city.

  4. Find it difficult to feel sorry for Canada and Canadians. Trudeau had not made a secret about his views and intentions prior to election. Even now only 35% of people in the mentioned poll are against admitting the refugees. “I did not vote for him”, is poor excuse in my book. We are responsible for each other and for our countries.
    Governments reflect majority views. That what makes them to get elected. Canadians have been left leaning people for a long time and the last election result did not come as a surprise.
    In Australia we are better off in regard to accepting refugees and islam and I personally do everything I can to make people understand the danger of islam and moslems. We have a new party – Australian Liberty Alliance, which grow out of anti-islamic organization. I am sure it will become a political force in the next election. Consider to support us.

    • Out of three largest political parties,the province of Alberta voted 75% Conservative in the federal election and it was 50% in Saskatchewan. In the provincial election Alberta’s conservatives split the vote between two different parties and allowed the socialist NDP to win the prize. It’s what happened in Saskatchewan for many years. People in Saskatchewan used to move to Alberta and now that Saskatchewan is the more conservative province people are moving back ! In the last ten years the roles are reversed . I read a few of the FB pages from Alberta and someone in the comments always writes : ‘Send Brad Wall to us !’ 🙂

  5. Brad Wall is often touted as the future leader of the Conservative Party of Canada. He has replied many times : ‘No, I already have the best job in Canada – as the premier of Saskatchewan’. He’s probably wise not to enter the federal scene as it can be very tough to be center-right in a country like Canada.Conservatism is big from the B.C. Rockies to parts of Manitoba but not as much in Central (Ontario) and Eastern Canada.The provincial parties are very much aligned with the federal parties. The NDP government in Alberta held off releasing a budget until after the federal election so as not to hurt the national NDP party under Tom Mulcair. The Saskatchewan Party is it’s own entity – fighting for the province’s interest only and that’s the reason for Wall’s success. There’s a provincial election in April and Wall’s poll is at 55% now compared to 23% for the provincial NDP. There’s still some ‘undecided’ so Wall has to step carefully but his common sense approach is what the public is looking for.

  6. Is it possible that it will take another war to bring back slavery and all the other stuff?
