Canada no place for ‘honour’ killings

If you come from a culture whose god allows you to kill in the name of faith, belief, or family honour

If you are coming from a culture whose god allows you to kill in the name of faith, belief, or family honour, you came to the wrong country. In Canada, you are prosecuted for such actions.

A case, such as the Shafia killings, costs Canadians a lot of money. When I immigrated to Canada, I was granted permission by the system to allow me to become a resident, and to this I am extremely grateful.

I came here to work hard, and in return live a good life. It is a slap in the face to see that now mine, and millions of others hard earned money, will now feed criminals for the next 25 years.

I came here to escape from hardship, yet now am paying to ease that of those who don’t deserve it.
