Sad sad story from Toronto Sun an hour ago.
Canadians are not being let thru to the Kabul airport.
They have been told to wear red and try and get to a North gate.
Then if they do get thru we are only loading people on that corresponds to the number of seatbelts on board.

:cuss:

seatbelts the US put over 640 on their C17

Our gets cut off at 180

It's a good thing Liberals are in power. Our last government made a big deal about nijabs.

I have no doubt that JT and the Libs will get the 20,000 Afghanis out like he did the Syrians.......

Don't hold your breath, it ain't gonna to happen.
Let's see why. Last Thursday our first flight had 175 Afghan nationals on it.
The next day, our second flight had 106 Afghan nationals on it.
20,000-175-106=19,719 Afghans left to fulfill Justin's latest promise.
Sorry, but it ain't gonna happen.
....but of course that is also dependent on how many will be able to reach the airport as the Taliban has all but closed off the access to the airport.
Ahh, don't you recall, it was waaaay back in April that Biden announced he was pulling US troops out of Afghanistan.
Canada has had plenty of time.
It's too bad Harper only brought over a pitiful 800 Afghanis in 2014 or else there would have no need for JT who was elected after Canada got out of Afghanistan to bring over 20 times more peeps than Harper's callous government.
Harper, Harper, Harper. It's all about Harper. It's all Harper's fault. :smt045
Do you want to throw Trump in there too?

News flash. Harper has been gone for several years. Get with the program.

So is the innuendo that Harper did nothing at all wrong or illegal while in power? There is a lot of evidence to the contrary. And I see many in these threads bring up the ghost of Trudeau SR from the Conservative side. As such do you honestly think that people care when you make rules that Harper is off-limits? Say it all you want. It won't stop people.

This kind of kneecapping on the fly reminds me of playing a game with a 5-year-old. Every time you do something - the rules suddenly compound and get more stringent against the adult. Much like the state voting laws passed in the US against democrats.

All people have done around here is illustrate facts in regards to the Harper years. Which conservatives supported (as well as Trump) blindly and didn't use the same stratospheric or impossible standard for JT & Biden. I hope that Trudeau wins another majority in the coming up elections. These poor Afghan refugees will probably be turned back because of Conservative intolerance ala Stephen Miller in Trumps inner circle if conservatives come to power.

Absolutely right. As such you should simply vote for Trudeau. Nothing he has done previously matters. Because it is all about happiness. And anything Trudeau did is off-limits - it's an in the past thing.

Wasnt it under Haper's watch when all Canadian presence except the Embassy left Afghanistan? Doesnt that mean he should have been responsible for getting the Afghanistan allies out when the Canadians pulled out? It wasnt on JT's watch now was it? He was elected 1 year AFTER Harper regime's callous disregard for the Afghanistan allies that were left behind.

It might have been been April Biden announced the US troop withdraw but Canada has been out of there since 2014 and started the withdraw in 2011, so yeah, there is no excuse for Haroer's government not to have brought over the allies then. He had 3 years from the start of the Canadian pull out to 2014 to deal with the evacuation of our allies.

If it's JT you're barking at, the barking is at the wrong person...............Harper's watch = Harper's responsibilty.

It's a another failure on Harper and the CPC and I will extend the CPC malfeasance list to add another failure.

Selfie boy gets roasted again.

He's out flashing his socks at voters while women in Afghanistan are murdered and held as sex slaves.

Trudeau used these girls, then ignored their pleas for help after they had served their purpose for his photo op. Disgusting.

Oklahoma mom saves members of Afghan girls robotics team that Trudeau previously used for photo op

The Afghan Girls Robotics Team was saved by the unlikeliest of heroes. An Oklahoma mother of 11 flew to Afghanistan earlier this month to rescue ten of its members.

Allyson Reneau, a 60-year old Harvard graduate with a Masters degree in international relations and US space policy, took it upon herself to try and save more members of the Afghan Girls Robotic Team as the Taliban took power in Kabul, reported New York Post.

They begged Canada’s federal government for help. They were "extremely terrified" and tried to connect with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who held a photo op with them in 2018.

"If this government (the Taliban) wants to be legitimate, they can do things in real-time to demonstrate to the world that women will have their rights equal to that of men," said prominent human rights lawyer Kimberley Motley, who previously appealed to Trudeau to help the girls seek refuge in Canada.

The main thing is they got out and it doesnt matter who came through. JT is also doing his part to get other Afghanis out despite not having anything to do with our involvement in the war. That would be the other guys who dropped the ball when they had their chance between 2011 to 2014 when we were getting out.

Thank god that the Cons are not in control of immigration of this magnitude. When the Cons were in power - the selection metric was to only allow "Christian" Syrians into the country to buoy their base and votes. Vetting Afghan "Christians" would be next to impossible.

As usual you don’t have the first clue. Harper was in Afghanistan quite often, he made the trips on a low key basis without a bunch of media fanfare and media photo-ops and grandstanding.. Harper was exponentially better versed on the situation in Afghanistan than Trudeau will ever be, just talk to any members of the Canadian armed forces that were in Afghanistan during the Harper years, he was well thought of and respected.

Yeah I guess he didn't think much of our Afghani allies the way he left most of them behind and callously told them "you got paid and knew what you were paid for" so just shut up and suck it up. Kinda like that?.........because that's essentially what he said to them. I can tell you a lot of the members of the Canadian armed forces did not like that crass treatment of their Afghani friends.

Are you sure about that? Vets that came back from his watch in his allied war with no legs. And then had to wait for hours for the 1 operator employed by the VA because of HWSNBN'ed disdain for federal workers. And then once every year the disabled hero had to prove he still had no legs. So I have a real hard time with your rosy recollection of this fawning you speak of by those in the military towards HWSNBN'ed. The cuts to the bone made veterans lives harder when they got home.
