Where are the men?
There's a hidden crisis in this city. Single moms speak out about the scary struggle to raise children who don't expect to survive past the age of 25
In other, and I am sure unrelated, news "Parents, kids flee hail of bullets".
Residents run for cover as gunfight erupts to disrupt barbecue near home where Jordan Manners lived.
The absent father and the mother with children by different men is often cited as a characteristic of members of gang culture. It is also a cultural norm of Jamaica. So is gun violence. When you allow the importation of a people whose home country indulges in such behaviour, what do you expect from them when they come to Canada?
Immigration to Canada is not a human right. Canadian immigration policy is not an exercise in charity. It is supposed to benefit the country and its people save in the case of asylum seekers who genuinely need protection from persecution and not the refugee frauds that have gamed our system (I’m looking at you Tamils, Mexicans, Israelis, Somalis). Canada’s immigration policy does not benefit the vast majority of Canadians but it does benefit the immigrant (and his or her soon to be imported relatives), ethnic communities, and those whose livelihood is dependant on the importation of people.
Our immigration system has failed this country in the importation of people from socially dysfunctional and culturally incompatible societies. Jamaica is one such country. Canada is under no obligation to allow Jamaicans, or anyone else for that matter, to immigrate here. In instances where social misbehaviour is apparent then Canada should stop brining those people in. The problem is not illegal guns imported from the U.S. The problem is that we Canadians allowed the importation of a culture whose people are willing to use them.
