    Interesting way of thinking...and it can apply to the U.S.A. as well...

    Interesting way of thinking...and it can apply to the U.S.A. as well...

    A woman wrote the best 'Letter to the Editor' in ages!! She cuts to the quick and explains things better than all the baloney you hear on TV.

    Her letter said:

    Recently, large demonstrations have taken place across the country protesting the fact that parliament is finally addressing the issue of illegal immigration. Certain people are angry that Canada might actually want to protect its own borders, might make it harder to sneak into this
    country and, once here, make it harder (as an illegal immigrant) to stay
    indefinitely.

    Let me see if I correctly understand the thinking behind these protests.

    Let's say I break into your house. Then, when you discover me in your house, you insist that I leave. But I say, 'I've made all the beds and washed the
    dishes and done the laundry and swept the floors; I've done all the things
    you don't like to do. I'm hard-working and honest (except for when I broke into your house).

    According to the protesters, not only must you let me stay, you must add me to your family's insurance plan, educate my kids, and provide other benefits to me and to my family (my husband will do your yard work) because he too is hard-working and honest, except for that breaking-in part.

    If you try to call the police or force me out, I will call my friends who will picket your house carrying signs that proclaim my illegal right to be there.

    It's only fair, after all, because you have a nicer house than I do, and I'm
    just trying to better myself. I'm hard-working and honest, um, except for well, you know. And what a deal it is for me!!

    I live in your house, contributing only a fraction of the cost of my keep, and there is nothing you can do about it without being accused of selfishness, prejudice and being an anti-housebreaker. Oh yeah, and I want you to learn my language so you can communicate with me! English is too hard for me to learn. You should also allow me to vote - in my own
    language, since I live in your house!

    Why can't people see how ridiculous this is?

    Only in Canada Eh!

    Hi ghettoside, Izzo & YARDofSTUF

    It's amazing when looked at with a little common sense applied how ridiculous it is to allow such a thing to happen.

    We in Canada have nowhere near the problems of the USA, but it comes from Asia, Europe and other countries mostly here.

    It needs to be stopped imho. If they cannot apply for a legal entry into any country then they should be on the next plane back with legally enforced payment charges filed against them for the pane costs. If they have money it should be confiscated to pay immediately.

    In most cases it will never be paid, but it will show up on any further application they might make and hopefully cause them to miss out on that as well.

    My heart goes out to some of these people, but they must be the cause of change in their own countries, not the recipients of a free ride here.

    Thanks Fellas
