Importation of Protestors?

Post by Al Czervic »

Climate change protestors & anti-globalization protestors are just two examples of the more militant groups who engage in protests that require a fair amount of police presence to maintain peace and order. Naturally there are other protests groups as well and these two were provided just as an example.

Protests cost taxpayers money in added policing costs not to mention those officers are not out solving and preventing serious crime when they are babysitting protest rallies.

Obviously here in Canada all Canadians have a right to engage in peaceful protests and demonstrations, that is NOT what this thread is about. My question is what about non-Canadians? Is it OK for Canadian protest groups to entice and invite protestors from other countries to come here and protest on Canadian soil ? I ask that because recently an American protestor was denied entry into Canada and thus prevented from protesting here.

Do we see this as a good thing or a bad thing ? Do we really need protestors from other countries protesting things like global warming here in Canada ?

Does global warming stop at the border?

considering it doesn't exist - you are right - the stupidity surrounding it knows no borders.

My question is do we really need people who do not vote here in Canada and pay their taxes elsewhere (assuming they pay taxes of course) Do we really need these types of people telling us how we should be spending our tax dollars on and what policies we should have ?

Personally I think most of these protestors come to Canada because we have to be one of the most protest friendly countries on the planet. Just look at what happens to protestors in Iran compared to here ? Funny how we rarely see foreign climate change protestors in Iran.

Ok, then let's deport them to Iran, no matter where they came from!

Maybe that's because Iran is a controlling Theocracy and we have democracy. To compare the two is stupid.
Nothing on the Internet is so serious it can't be laughed at, and nothing is as laughable as people who think otherwise.

But then they might actually get tortured and we would be on the hook to compensate them for millions of dollars. Only in Canada can you become a Canadian of convenience, go back to your home country, get tortured, come back to Canada and become a millionaire. After all it is always Canada’s fault how other countries treat their fellow citizens in their own correctional systems.

Godwin has argued that overuse of Nazi and Hitler comparisons should be avoided, because it robs the valid comparisons of their impact.

I just think you can get your point across without jumping straight to Nazis.

I support protesting, especially causes like protesting against global warming - and when I say that, I mean protesting against all the people that say it exists and want to enact huge environmental taxes on the hysteric populace for zero gain to humanity. We should be protesting every day against any kind of carbon tax or otherwise, and against any takeover of our branch of government by environmental extremists, so we can avoid the economic downfall that has already struck Spain and California.

If you learned to read Westsidebud you would see that I clearly stated this is NOT about the rights of Canadians to protest or demonstrate here in Canada...(see this part down below)

Obviously here in Canada all Canadians have a right to engage in peaceful protests and demonstrations, that is NOT what this thread is about.




The issue is what rights do NON-Canadians have to protest here and tell us what to do? For example if a few aircraft loads of militants fly in to protest that Canada does NOT currently allow Sharia Law are people like you in support of that?
