In a poll released Monday, 47 per cent of respondents said Canada is taking in the right number of refugees, while 41 per cent said the number is already too high. Only 11 per cent of the 1,508 adults surveyed said the country should increase the number of refugees coming to Canada.Now, there are a number of ways that statistics like this can be reported on.
In the case of the Globe and Mail, instead of saying that 58 per cent of Canadians are glad to see refugees here, and that one out of five of these Canadians want us to accept more, the Globe thinks the significant part of the survey is what it describes as the sizable minority -- 41 per cent -- who don't want more refugees coming in.
Why does this emphasis bother me? Because this is the type of news story that was framed according to someone's stereotype -- lets find some anti-refugee Canadians, there must be lots out there! -- while also pandering to a big-C Conservative view -- that Canada already accepts "too many" refugees. Lets everyone fight!
Never forget, it was the Harper Conservatives who tried to destroy Canadian compassion by cutting off medical care for refugees, by talking about "barbaric cultural practices" during the election, by inflating controversies about hijab-wearing Muslim women, etc.
Harper is gone but his Conservative allies -- big C and small c -- are still with us, still fomenting divisiveness and suspicion between Canadians.

Cathie claims to support women and the LGBTQ community.
Yet she desperately wants ILLEGALS to come in our country, us spend multi-millions of dollars supporting them...from a culture that treats women like crap. And gays even worse!
One must wonder how Cathie reconciles this...

I guess that's the upside to all this xenophobia: it's forcing conservatives to pretend to care about LGBTQ and womens' rights.
One thing we do know. Progressives certainly don't give a damn about women and LGBTQs. If they did, they wouldn't be demanding we bring in Muslims who often kill gays and treat women like second class citizens.
As usual they lie about their true colours.

Yes, this is a huge problem today
Hi, My name is Kate and i just want to share my experience with you.
I have being hearing about this blank ATM card for a while and i never really paid any interest to it because of my doubts. Until one day i discovered a hacking group called Cyber ATM Hackers. They are really good at what they are doing. Back to the point, I inquired about The Blank ATM Card. If it works or even Exist. They told me Yes and that its a card programmed for random money withdraws without being noticed. This was shocking and i still had my doubts. Then i gave it a try and asked for the card and agreed to their terms and conditions. Hoping and praying it was not a scam. One week later i received my card and tried with the closest ATM machine close to me, It worked like magic. I was able to withdraw up to $1500 USD. This was unbelievable and the happiest day of my life. So far i have being able to withdraw up to $21,000 USD without any stress of getting caught. I don't know why i am posting this here, i just felt this might help those of us in need of financial stability. CYBER HACKERS has really change my life. If you want to contact them, Here is the email address firstname.lastname@example.org . And I believe they will also Change your Life
