Harper CONs vs. Refugees

The Harper CONs have switched their tone when it comes to immigration. At times, they like to portray themselves as more sympathetic to immigrants than the Liberals - who supposedly embrace the "flippant secularism of the Annex" - while at other times they take a hardline stance against refugees. Jason Kenney, the Harper Government's Minister of Immigration, has both led the microtargeting campaign for new Canadian voters and proudly defended the Harper Government's curtailment of refugee benefits.

The Harper CONs have spoken out of both sides of their mouth when it comes to new Canadians. To Quebeckers it should be evident that the Harper CONs will pander to xenophobes given their Quebec French language radio ads. But now the jig is up and people in the rest of Canadian can see clearly what the Harper CONs are willing to say about refugees, thanks to a blockheaded draft flyer from Saskatchewan Conservative MP Kelly Block.

The image was obtained from a Spectator Tribune article by Toban Dyck. I'd like to thank that publication and writer for bringing attention to the story.

  1. Sadly, this will probably win them some votes in Saskatchewan.

    1. Hopefully it'll make their micro targeting efforts when it comes to new Canadians more difficult.
