Resident resents call for Syrian refugees

Canada cannot afford to bring in 25,000 new immigrants

Spending $1.2 billion for 25,000 refugees? Hello, we have a huge shortage of money for hospitals, schools, retirees, people on low income, sick children, etc.

Many refugees from war-torn Syria and other Muslim countries are against our western lives to begin with. So why do they want to be with us? It really worries me. Our women love their freedom, we love our rights, we love to speak up when we need to.

With Canadian unemployment these days, do we have enough for the extra 25,000 people? Most families coming can be up to five or six people, and living in Canada is expensive. I can’t afford to help them out and Canada can’t either. Our national debt is in the billions of dollars.

People on low income, retirees, most of them only bring home about $20,000 a year, so $1.2 billion is a huge number to them. They can’t support a project like this. So, I guess the taxpayers will be stuck with paying for their bills, want it or not. And please don’t force on us that we all are waiting for these people, because so far, I don’t know a single person who’s been asked the question and said yes.

Also, on their journey to the hated west, we can see that most of them are in possession of expensive smart phones. How do they pay for them? They must have bank accounts and good money, so please don’t make them look poor.
