Are you saying you prefer the ways of those others countries? There are always excesses, mismanagement, and abuse in any system. Criticize those if you like, and I will agree. When did compassion become such a dirty word in Canada?

LOL Tom :eek:...I have more compassion than you could imagine.But I also have a sense of hee haw .
Them other countrys...good on them :D. You may of missed an important part here .

IF YOU CROSS THE * enter country here * BORDER ILLEGALLY.....this is what happens :eek:.

If I go to visit any country I don't think I would sneak in with no i/d on a boat piloted by say smugglers ...lets say.... oh unless it was Canada it seems :p....:cool::cool:

I hesitated putting this up and even edited to say I received an e-mail.I felt bad about the last sentence with the word I in it referring to me....not .. ( that was part of the e-mail.)

There is compassion here...( My country is a great Multicultural country....no one even comes close my friend. ) ...but it has to be mixed with fairness and at least a bit of common sense. That what the joke is about.....( did you realize there were explosive residue and related stuff on the last boat load of Ilegal Visitors to grace our coast....just sayin eh.
BTW not all of it is true ...I don't think they give em Credit cards.
As for Posters 5.6 & 7 ...:D thanks for getting it as funny....sorta :p.

ya people take for granted what we have here in Canada. Id still rather live in another province though. It's to expensive to live here. But I can tell ya what we do pay for, the beauty/mountains/rivers/mountains & wildlife here.

Looking at these 5 points leads me to believe that it was written by an American who is poking fun at us.

credit cards??? what on earth??? when we came here (legally of course. :)), we put in our life savings in 1 bank (TD - i hate TD) and applied for a credit card to start building our credit history to buy a house, car, etc. we were denied of having it because...... we don't have credit history. what the..... i don't get it.

anyway, canada has so much compassion that people a lot of times abuse. i still don't get it.

I alway though newcomers to Canada should pay more tax that current residents. Aboriginals, the first people here, don't pay hst and also don't pay any other taxes, as far as I know, if they live on a reserve. Along that line of thinking, let's pass a law that new Canadians, say ones that arrive after 2011 pay triple HST and 10% more on income tax than people who became Canadian or arrived in Canada before 2011. That should be enough of a deterrent that all the boat people will go to the good old US of A.

Problem solved. We will only get people who really want to be here, not parasite refugees.

a joke is now a debate?
life is too short to take things serious
This "debate" itself is a fun thing to observe. Enjoy it while it lasts! :D :p

I agree with Bill (Aquaman) though. This most definitely seems like an American Joke.

I think we should do it like the Australians do and not let them touch down on Canadian soil . They have and of shore detention and processing center and then they are left on the island for how every long until they take to process them. since they are not on canadian soil they don't all the rights we do . I think that is a better way.

Was she raped, beaten, robbed, shot at or mutilated with machetes before escaping? A great many of the people escaping on this boat were. That is no exaggeration.

Let us not lose sight of the fact that these are real people who have been through a real, unimaginably horrific ordeal.

UMMMM ...Totaly unfair I M H O ....That would leave them with little to live on.

This was not intended to start a debate at all ...just a bit of a laugh at ourselves and at other countries .
Yes we are a great nation and we welcome all sorts of people ( and they can bring their religion and customs with them to boot ) ...
* please leave that one alone..;) *
Some are refugees yes ....Can't blame them for wanting out of their perdicament....some countries are brutal. Not every one has the money to come here legally and that is no fault of their own , its the circumstances they find themselves in.
That being said ...
I only wish that there was a law that would send the ones back immediately when they have broken the law here . IE; drug dealers murderers and the like. No questions asked appeals ( hey you were found guilty in our courts * don't go there either :) *... no 2nd chance's nothing. Send em back. That would help in some cases.
I also think we bend over to accommodate a little to much . But then again were not a bunch of commies :D....( no offense meant to any we have on the forum ) :p

Lighten up guys it was something to laugh at .....if we can't laugh at ourselves who can we laugh at .......
Oh well...
...btw hey TIGER :) it was Steve ( rescuepenguin )that refereed to it being possibly an american....gotta give credit where credits due .
