Jason Kenney's perfidy

| Disqus Comments


Brought to you by the ever-reliable Aaron Wherry:

Canadians have been clear that they do not want illegal immigrants and bogus refugee claimants receiving gold-plated health care benefits that are better than those Canadian taxpayers receive. Our Government has listened and acted. We have taken steps to ensure that protected persons and asylum seekers from non-safe countries receive health care coverage that is on the same level as Canadian taxpayers receive through their provincial health coverage, no better. Bogus claimants from safe countries, and failed asylum seekers, will not receive access to health care coverage unless it is to protect public health and safety. Shamefully, the NDP and Liberals support bogus and rejected asylum seekers receiving gold-plated health care benefits. We disagree. Those who have been through our fair system and rejected should respect Canada’s laws and leave the country. [emphases added]

As I have noted previously, the government’s own website tells a different story entirely. Refugee applicants, usually indigent, have received in the past no more than a Canadian on social assistance receives from his or her provincial health plan. Those supplemental benefits—prescription medicines, for example—are the ones currently being cut off.

Jason’s Big Lie needs a stake put through its heart. Thanks to Wherry for wielding the mallet on this occasion.
