Minister Lisa MacLeod and Minister Jeremy Harrison hold Trudeau government accountable.
Following a contentious meeting over the illegal border crossing crisis, it has become clear that the Trudeau Liberals are refusing to enforce Canada’s borders and are refusing to bring the border crisis to an and. As a result, provinces are being overburdened, and the situation continues to worsen.
After the conclusion of the meeting, the Ministers responsible for immigration in both Ontario and Saskatchewan released a joint statement, instead of signing the statement put out by Ahmed Hussen.
The joint statement can be read below:
“While Ontario fully supports legal immigration and continues to fund a wide range of services to refugees and newcomers of all backgrounds, we will not be signing on to this communiqué. Instead, the Government of Ontario continues to call on the federal government to identify and fully fund a solution to the border crisis that has resulted from federal policy decisions.”
— The Honourable Lisa MacLeod, Ontario Minister of Children, Community and Social Services and Minister Responsible for Women’s Issues
“It is the Government of Saskatchewan’s position that the Government of Canada fully fund supports for asylum seekers that have arisen from recent federal policy decisions. The Government of Saskatchewan also calls on the Government of Canada to fully fund health, social assistance and employment supports for asylum seekers and recently arrived government-assisted refugees. Canada has yet to follow through on a commitment to fully support refugee transition, and there is now added pressure for provinces to also support asylum seekers.”
— The Honourable Jeremy Harrison, Saskatchewan Minister of Immigration and Career Training
As we can see, there is a growing backlash to the Trudeau government’s virtue-signalling open borders policies. Provinces are realizing that their citizens are paying the price for Justin Trudeau’s globalist grandstanding on the international stage.
