Well That’s Gratitude For Ya.

If you find yourself complaining about the hospitality of the country that granted you shelter from whatever real or made-up-for-immigration-purposes threat you happen to be fleeing from then perhaps you’re not a refugee at all.
 
Seriously, if you’re complaining about the food or the accommodations you’re gracious hosts provided you then, yeah, you’re not a refugee.

It’s bad enough close to $1 billion of our tax dollars has been allocated to relocate you to our shores the least you could do is not complain about it.  Canadians are weary enough of refugees already so it’s best not to give us more reasons to be even wearier of refugees as if we need more reasons.

And since I’m talking about it here are more signs you might not be a refugee.





You frequently return to the country of your alleged persecution even as your asylum application is being considered.

You bypass or pass through other countries that can provide shelter to get to one where the benefits are better.


You engage in regular criminal activity in the country where you seek sanctuary.



If even one of these describes you then you’re probable not a refugee but that’s not a problem.  We have an entire industry staffed by people whose livelihoods depend on your patronage and will help you fake it ‘til you make it even though they know you’re phonier than the danger you're purportedly fleeing.  When it comes to making a living they don’t care who you are just as long they get paid.
