There is definitely some push back, country wide, from a PC thought police. However, when I get my feathers ruffled about something, it does make me look at the reason why. Let's take the Syrian refugee crisis for instance. My first reaction was "We can't let everyone in, what the heck are we going to do with everyone," But them it made me think that my real concern is my own tentative employment and how much rent and everything else is. Basically, I am resistant because I'm self concerned.
Your senses and resistance are justified. We, those who pay taxes, are paying for all of this. No, it isn't coming from Heaven. Up here, they immediately get free Health-care, free living spaces, free furniture, free food, you name it. Most of them could never be able to find a job. No, there are no olive groves in Canada. Yes, we have to give you winter clothes.
Just how long are we going to pay for them? We are already strapped to the limit.
Fine. But are we forgetting they are people? If Quebec was in ruins for whatever reason would you just say "Ehh, French wannabees, never really agreed with them anyways. Figure it out on your own dime." I get now opening up the Safeway and letting people have at it, but there has to be something between ultimate charity and the big middle finger. Right?
The Canadian government plans to provide the refugees with what they need for one year, after that hopefully they can become Canadian citizens and pull their own weight. These people are known for their strong work ethics, which is more than I can say for some Canadian citizens who were born and raised here. I'm afraid too, with all that's been happening, how can we not be? All I can add is that opening our doors to these people was one of two options, and in my opinion it was the better one, because I'd hate to live in a country that would turn them away.
