Why is this guy here and who approved him?

Nostromo • 4 years ago

You've never gone through screening at Pearson? The other week I saw a completely covered (I suppose she was a woman) go through without a question. A real jaw-dropping moment.

Long enough to collect disability payments for PTSD and to book a flight to Qatar.

Tempest • 4 years ago

They're minimun wage earners. Time to step up and pay airport security a living wage and train them.

Morty • 4 years ago

It is a serious job with responsibility for flight safety, I'm with you, their wages should reflect that.

Tempest • 4 years ago

Exactly. 20 years ago it was a McJob. Not now.

SydBarrett • 4 years ago

You have to be kidding if you think that anyone who's in PSAC is a minimum wage earner.

Chairborne • 4 years ago

They're not in PSAC. The Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA) is just an oversight body. The goons who actually wand you down and x-ray your luggage are all plain-old security guards hired by a security guard company.

And they make very little above minimum wage. I dated a CATSA employee for about 6 months, and the stories she told about the guards were absolutely hair-raising. Some were great people, but many were gang members, religious radicals, drug users, gambling addicts, bigots, you name it.

Tempest • 4 years ago

I'm talking about the security staff, not border services.

Nostromo • 4 years ago

I don't think they are the highest paid either.

PresidentRight • 4 years ago

I wonder how she got through passport patrol without exposing her face.

Nostromo • 4 years ago

Maybe her passport photo resembled her.

Armandie • 4 years ago

She was likely escorted to a sharia compliant room where she was ID'd by a female employee away from the "gaze of unrelated men".

PresidentRight • 4 years ago

The gaze of unrelated men might be a good, inexpensive first screening test for radicalism.

Just throwing that idea out there.

PraiseAlfie11 • 4 years ago

Exactly.

Carl Gustav • 4 years ago

Stop that.

Guest • 4 years ago
Tempest • 4 years ago

I'm all for that. A fully secular society where no religion has any place in polite society.

skiesofblue • 4 years ago

Isn't that "racist"?

Tempest • 4 years ago

Not at all. Just keep your faith to yourself. seems fine.its like I'm telling Muslims can't bet christians can. Secularism means that the state has nothing to do with anyone's belief system.

Armandie • 4 years ago

Yep. We accommodate mohammedan discrimination in the name of not being discriminatory.

johnkrug • 4 years ago

The private sphere is the problem area.

mizfolia • 4 years ago

Now that has to stop. The minute a person steps on Canadian soil their face should be visible unless it's -30C, or Halloween night. Cover your face in your own home if you feel it's so necessary.

Armandie • 4 years ago

We've accommodated this sharia norm for years. Sickening, I know. The precious can't reveal their faces in front of unrelated men. So, they are welcomed to a private area where they're ID'd in front of a female only employee. So the male employees are told they cannot ID mohammedans in face veils. That's sharia for ya, yet imams peddle islam to the infidel as a religion that respects equality. Anyone who believes that is a fool.

A possibly security wise also.

bill reitzes • 4 years ago

And the costs of protecting Canadians from those that we let in, are staggering.
The more unvetted Muslims, that we let in, the more that we waste on security.
Where is the net profit from this immigration?

TaxMeIAmCanadian • 4 years ago

It takes 22 billion per year of tax dollars to 'support' immigrants. The system is whacked and broken. But as Paul Martin said during his last campaign, 'And if I'm elected, we'll make it even easier for you to bring in your aging parents and grandparents'.

Trudeau's plan, open up the floodgates to anyone and everyone who is not white. Forget symilation, Multiculturalism is the way to go. Apparently, not. It's failed at best and a melting pot would have been so much better.

bill reitzes • 4 years ago

The 22 billion is to "support" them.
How much is it costing us to protect the Canadian populace from those that we let in?
I keep pounding away at my proposal to vet Muslims with a simple two question test.
1) do they support or oppose violent jihad?
2) do they support or oppose Sharia law?
Support for either, is a failure, and bye bye.
Put a referendum on the table today, and 90% of Canadians would agree with me wholeheartedly.
What is there to disagree with?

Dave • 4 years ago

Harper is hoping they vote for him. He's the one that keeps the floodgates open.

Lyle P Smith • 4 years ago

Another Liberal supporter with dementia!

Chris • 4 years ago

Not true!

canucktwofour • 4 years ago

Thought I read recently Canada agreed to bring in several thousand Syrian refugees. Was it true or false?

mizfolia • 4 years ago

Yes, apparently the UN is very annoyed with us for not bringing in enough Syrian refugees. But! last I head Canada is going to bring in Syrian refugees who are the most persecuted, which would include Christians, Yazidis, Kurds and a few Shias. Really ticked off a lot of commenters on the CBC boards. :)

sharptack • 4 years ago

Just another reason I stand by the Conservatives, and the less the UN can try to control us the better.

TaxMeIAmCanadian • 4 years ago

The UN has become a pathetic joke.

gamaa • 4 years ago

More than a joke, this den of vipers is dangerous and
our liberal 'progressives ' genuflex at that altar of cray-cray !

Terran1 • 4 years ago

is Canada a dumping ground for world's problems? at least with harper the people that actually need help will be brought in. Justin would in all likelihood have isis types wash up here.

gamaa • 4 years ago

The Canadian Refugee board is stacked with liberals. Career bureaucrats, a legacy of the liberal years .
Under the ignorant ' progressive ' watch "wilful stupidity".... this is not naivety .
"a society that is prepared to tolerate extreme intolerance in the name of liberalism has signed its own death warrant."

canucktwofour • 4 years ago

Baloney, the Harper Tories have been governing Canada for nine years now. Easy to see you can't see past your own personal prejudices... Try to keep up will you.... !

Isn't cognitive dissonance an amazing thing?

Steve Warnar • 4 years ago

How long have you been affected ?

Guest • 4 years ago

No personal experience. This comes from seeking actual truth instead of idiotic and contradictory beliefs.

You would not understand this concept; it is the use of knowledge defined as justifiable, true, belief.

So do keep posting your faux wit. It goes well with your faux beliefs.

Steve Warnar • 4 years ago

Actually. Truth is very simply put truth .
Has nothing to with knowledge,justifiable ,true or belief.
Truth just is ! Truth is not what Liberals believe it is .
The poster ( Canadian Consulate ) simply was pointing out some Liberal hypocriitocal positions.
And that's the truth !

Guest • 4 years ago

OK. I will try again.

I use knowledge. "Knowledge" is only "knowledge" when it has three attributes; justified, true, belief.

The truth is great, but it alone does not give one 'knowledge.'

If you think I am a Liberal, you are in error.

Steve Warnar • 4 years ago

My turn . He did the best he could with the knowledge available .
Truth therefore is subjective. Depends on the knowledge one has and if one believes that knowledge to be both enough and correct.
