The new Harper plan to jail refugees, Immigration Bill C49, is based on a few lies.
Lie 1: Canada has a generous refugee system so people who are indeed refugees can get here.
Lie 2: That there are some refugees breaking the law, who are criminal.
Lie 3: That the law is too weak to stop these criminals and must be changed.
Truth 1: Canada’s takes less refugees then Germany, the United States, Pakistan or Lebanon.
Truth 2: It is legal to leave a country on fake documents, on rafts, ships, planes or foot. Not only is it legal, it is honored, celebrated and often necessary.
Truth 3: It is actually the other way around. These people are not criminals, but the conservative
government wants to make it so that they are.
