What happened to taking care of Canadian citizens first?
The Trudeau government is spending more taxpayer dollars on housing for illegal border crossers.
According to the Toronto Sun, “The federal government is planning to build temporary housing for up to 520 people at a Quebec border crossing that has been the scene of an influx of asylum seekers.”
The report also notes that, “The housing notice calls for “heated, ventilated and illuminated canvas shelters” for three-season use that must include areas for sleeping, security, reception and warehousing. The government is also looking for other units to serve as quarantine space, toilets and showers as well as systems for drinking water and drainage.”
Meanwhile, many Canadian citizens remain homeless.
There are an estimated 235,000 homeless people in Canada on an annual basis, while 35,000 people are homeless each night.
Additionally, there are an estimated 150,000 people who use emergency shelters yearly.
This means that there is clearly a shortage of resources going towards helping homeless Canadians.
And yet, by spending money on housing for illegal border crossers, the Trudeau government is not only encouraging further illegal crossings, but is taking money away from where it should be going: Helping Canadian citizens.
It is disgraceful for homeless Canadians to be left to fend for themselves while the government that is supposed to be serving our own citizens instead spends money on people entering Canada illegally.
As I’ve said before, it’s called the ‘Canadian’ government for a reason, yet the Trudeau Liberals seem totally ignorant of what their actual job is.
Canadians need to speak out against this injustice, and demand that our government stop rewarding illegal border crossers, and start redirecting resources towards homeless Canadians and other Canadian citizens in need of help. It’s not our job to fix the world’s problems, it’s our job to strengthen and uplift our own country and the people within it.
