The money is going to provincial governments in Ontario, Manitoba, and Quebec, as they deal with the rising cost of the federal government’s refusal to deal with the border crisis.
The cost of the illegal border crossing crisis continues to rise.
As provinces face an escalating burden and escalating costs from the crossings, the federal government is spending $50 million more on payments to Ontario, Manitoba, and Quebec.
According to the CP, Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen said “The continued influx of asylum seekers entering Canada between ports of entry has increased pressure on provinces to provide shelter and social services to a growing number of asylum seekers. We appreciate the pressures Quebec, Ontario and Manitoba are facing and will continue discussions with provinces towards longer-term solutions including further financial support.”
The majority of the money will go to Quebec. They will get $36 million, while Ontario and Manitoba will get $11 million and $3 million respectively.
Disturbingly however, this is just the beginning of a massive expenditure of Canadian taxpayer dollars.
Quebec has asked for about $146 million, while Toronto alone says they will need to cover $70.8 million in costs.
Canadian taxpayers getting fleeced because of government weakness
All of this is being paid for by Canadian taxpayers. We are footing the bill for the failure of the Trudeau government to secure our border and ensure our laws are respected.
Meanwhile, many of our own people are going without help, and people trying to enter Canada the right way are being punished.
This is what happens when a government allows a misguided sense of duty to people outside our country – and a lack of respect for those within it – to override the fact that the Canadian government exists only to serve the Canadian people.
The Trudeau government has shown they are too weak to get tough and deter illegal crossings, and that means today’s announcement of $50 million is just the start of a massive expenditure of our taxpayer dollars on this crisis.
