Canada Immigration Prefers Terrorists

This article by Mark Styen from the National Post put my jaw on the floor:

"Immigration Canada was not persuaded by this: According to Ms. Shouldice, many asylum seekers try to pass themselves off as terrorists, the object being to 'exaggerate the persecution they fear in their homeland in order to impress Canadian immigration officials.' Read that again slowly: Your chances of being accepted as a refugee in Canada are likely to be improved if you've been convicted of terrorist offences."


In that sense, the ever-growing Terrorist-Canadian community is only an extreme manifestation of our willingness to elevate over all other considerations the masochistic frisson we get from demonstrating our "tolerance" by letting in someone avowedly intolerant. True, as M. Chr�tien and several of my colleagues have pointed out, September 11th was a failure of U.S. border control not Canadian border control. The difference is simple: In the U.S., letting in terrorists represents an immigration failure; in Canada, it's an immigration policy.

PM Chr�tien apparently even intervened with Pakistani officials to get a known terrorist out of custody in Pakistan while at the same time his sons were killing US soldiers on the ground in Afghanistan with grenades!

All this time I thought the Canadians were mostly harmless...
