HO, HO, Hosed as illegal Tamil migrants prefer Vancouver
Ho, Ho, Ho$ed as 200 illegal Tamil migrants are preferring to stay inVancouver, versus Toronto. Hey, what's not to like? Free housing, welfare, medical care, schooling, generous Canadian old age pension for life when they reach 65 years old. Great weather etc.
It has been reported at 174 illegal Tamils (131 men-43 women, plus their husbands still in detention awaiting release) who hit the British Columbia shores this summer have chosen Vancouver for their home. The 493 illegal Tamils you may recall, claimed refugee status and poverty, despite paying $50,000 for each man, woman and child, certainly belies the refugee moniker.Though this new development will certainly come with a new set of challenges, as British Columbia deals with already bursting at the seams welfare and social housing, a crisis looms for British Columbians who will now be HO, HO, HO$ED this Christmas season as they share these stretched to the limit services with our new citizens.
There is no word from Vancouver’s Mayor Gregor Robertson on how to deal with housing this new block of citizens. There is no word from the BC Liberals on where the money will come to feed, cloth, medical services etc, in addition to providing pocket money for the new arrivals.
What has been stated is the increased cost in services to welcome our new citizens will amount to a couple of million dollars a month in welfare, housing and assorted services.
Though Mayor Robertson’s first order of the day when elected was to eradicate homelessness during his term has been overshadowed by the recent failure of the $700 million dollar Olympic Village debt and the vacancies and unsold condos which followed.
Well perhaps an answer is in the wind for Vancouver Mayor Gregor’s conundrum over what to do with the remaining unsold units at the Olympic Village.
The illustrious Mayor Robertson and Vancouver taxpayers can give the greatest Christmas present of all and use these Olympic Condos to house the 200 + illegal Tamils.
This free housing for the 200 plus illegal Tamils will assist the Mayor in his end homelessness agenda, while it’s citizenry of taxpayers who elected the Mayor will enjoy the smugness of opening their pocketbooks threefold.
One, the quest to reduce homelessness a bit will have been fulfilled, two Vancouver taxpayers will certainly be eager to assist the transition of the 200 of 500 illegal Tamils in Metro Vancouver (who know how to play the game), to feel welcome on their dime, while three, the Christmas spirit and brotherhood the new arrivals will witness the generosity firsthand by Vancouverites during this holiday season.
While free housing of 200 plus illegal Tamils into these Olympic Village million dollar suites may seem out of the realm of possibility, one reality that is for certain, is somewhere there is another shipload of illegal Tamils in Thailand awaiting word when they too can come and join the Christmas spirit that is Canada’s generous immigration system.
While the Christmas Season is upon us, Vancouver taxpayers will soon get a harsh lesson on the gift of giving. Taxpayers recently told they are on the hook to pay off the Olympic Village debt at $39,000 a day or a couple of million dollars a month for the next 30 years in addition will now be helping to pay for your new 200 plus illegal arrivals to the tune of a million dollars a month. Certainly with interest included.
Merry Christmas, and to all a guaranteed payday for life, at least for the many illegal Tamils who now make Vancouver their home and the shipload of Tamils off Thailand when news reaches them will soon be arriving on a one horse open barge.
