The government will prioritize complete families, women at risk, and members of the LGBT community. Single men will only be allowed to come to Canada if they identify as LGBT or are accompanying their parents as part of a family unit.Ooh, there's some tough love. But wait, Coach Justin has called a double-reverse. The priority categories do not apply to the suddenly split-off group of 10,000 'privately sponsored' refugees.
"Privately sponsored" single men (and I predict an inexplicably sharp rise in the number of self declared gay Muslim men) will still be allowed to come to Canada like any other refugee... which renders the proviso above totally moot (and, incidentally, intentionally deceptive).
The one thing this proviso seems to do is shift responsibility for all the single men onto their private sponsors. I guess that if one of these guys blows himself up on the steps of Parliament, you will have to bring civil suit against the United Church and all the other private sponsors. Who says Pierre-lite doesn't have a certain animal cunning?
I guess that particular obfuscation will be enough of a climbdown to appease the media and the average low-information voter.
What we do know now is that 10,000 refugees will arrive between December 1 and Christmas. Given civil service 8 hour days (even with no lunches or coffee breaks) that means 416 persons per day will have to pass security and medical screening. 15,000 won’t arrive in Canada until the end of February and will now be screened at the rate of 375 per day. Of course, there's the outliers who have presumably been screened with the same magic wand that apparently don't count.
Officials said 102 Syrian refugees have arrived since Nov. 4, which is when they started the clock on the commitment. The 3,089 resettled between July 2013 and Nov. 3 did not count toward the total.Fwiw, meeting the pre-Christmas deadline means clearing a refugee every 1.15 minutes. On the end of February deadline that's been stretched out to 1.28 minutes.

October 7: TV4's popular investigative journalism TV program, Cold Facts (Kalla Fakta), revealed that public health centers in areas with high immigrant populations perform so-called "virginity tests" on young girls. The doctors (several of whom were immigrants) ignored the loud protests from the girls, and examined them against their will. The doctors also offered, for a cash bribe, to issue "virginity certificates" for the girls.

Almost half of Michigan immigrants from the Middle East were born in Iraq (54,691), followed by Lebanon (20,698), Yemen (12,551), Syria (6,791) and Saudi Arabia (5,041).
Compared to Michigan's immigrants from central and eastern Asia, those born in the Middle East are much more likely to live in poverty.

Thanabalasingam Kanagasabpathy, a director of the Scarborough temple’s governing society said, "The temple is a public facility and anyone could come to pray," adding, "It is not my place to ask their political affiliations. World Tamil Movement people, sometimes they are coming to pray. How can I say don’t come here?”
The WTM’s former spokesman, Nehru Gunaratnam, was photographed at the temple last January, holding a microphone as he addressed the Ontario premier, one of her caucus MPPs and a Toronto city councillor. He then read out the text of an award from the temple, which he handed to the temple president, who gave it to the premier.

“If they are armed and these kids have to defend themselves and end up shooting someone, will the defence minister support them?”

Lesbos (Greece) (AFP) - As the hunt for jihadists widens after last week's Paris attacks, authorities in Greece warn it was virtually impossible to pick out dangerous extremists among arriving migrants, without prior intelligence.**********
It's a seemingly detailed security check, but jihadists have already proven they can bypass it with ease.
Those looking to give the police the slip can also obtain fake Greek documents, with criminal syndicates doing a brisk business in supplying migrants with fake papers and police registration documents.
A gang of suspected forgers, most of them Pakistanis, were arrested on Lesbos on Wednesday.

I've been following this story because, despite being arrested on Parliament Hill with a weapon, the police and media were STRANGELY RELUCTANT to release this person's identity.
Well, looky here...
A lawyer for Yasin Ali asked for the assessment in court Wednesday after the 56-year-old appeared by video from the courthouse cellblock on a charge of carrying a concealed cleaver into Parliament.Yeah, ol' Yasin was probably just a little cranky because the Liberals are talking about cancelling income splitting.
RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson told reporters that Ali is known to authorities, but “not in the sort of counter-terrorism context.”
In fact, Paulson does not believe that the man’s actions were politically motivated or an act of terror.
Ali’s court appearance Wednesday was slightly delayed after it became apparent he might need the assistance of an interpreter as he speaks Somali Arabic.Yup... it's a freakin' mystery.
It is NOT KNOWN why he was in Ottawa or on Parliament Hill.
And, there's this...

• "France's ambassador to Canada, Nicolas Chapuis said Sajjan assured him that Canada would remain a part of the coalition against ISIS, even as the Liberal government looks to move ahead with its campaign promise to wind down the country's participation in airstrikes." •Maybe Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan misheard the Prime Minister promising a "robust" response.
I'm guessing Justin actually said he was thinking of sending "robots." That way, nobody gets hurt... right?
In any case, it sounds as though Chapuis has Trudeau's number...

The arrests come after an ISIS terrorist bragged about how easy it was to smuggle thousands of covert jihadists into Europe under the guise of being a desperate refugee.What about the jihadis who are already here?
The Syrian operative claimed more than 4,000 covert ISIS gunmen had made it into western nations, hidden among innocent refugees.

You know who's actually doing a stellar job of broadcasting their philosophy and religious idealogy out into the public domain?

"We must do this without any statute of limitations and we must find out all their names," Putin said.Here's a clear statement of intent.

"Anyone who tries to help the criminals should know that the consequences for trying to shelter them will lie completely on their shoulders."

"This week in Maclean’s, Lindhout writes about how this uncommon bond came to be, and how horrific personal tragedies drew these three into a close, unlikely friendship."Funny, there's not a word about the searing personal tragedy of Tabitha Speer, the widow of the special forces medic Omar Khadr admitted murdering.
"He told the court no one had forced him to change his pleas. When asked if he had killed Speer in 2002, Khadr answered, quietly, "Yes." When asked if it was true that he conspired with Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda, he also answered "Yes.""This puff piece in Macleans is precisely the sort of mushy media narrative that helped install Prime Minister Care Bear.
You truly do deserve the type of government you get.
