World immigration challenges arrive in Canada

Feb 23, 2017 5:00 AM

When an immigration lawyer says there is a growing border problem in this country that needs addressing, we should listen.

Guidy Mamann, whose firm has been responsible for bringing thousands to Canada legally over the years, says Canadians should be aware of a trend that could be unmanageable as early as this summer.

With PM Trudeau waving the Canadian flag and inviting all fleeing the U.S. to come here it plays right into Donald Trump’s master plan.

Not his problem now.

What needs to be understood here is this is not the same as inviting and vetting 25,000 refugees to become Canadian citizens.

This is about people who are crossing open fields into another country, have not been properly screened, and if arrived at a Canadian crossing would be turned back.

My mother arrived here when she was 14 with the clothes on her back and what they could carry.  

I get it.

But’s it’s time to stop bragging about how humanitarian we are and prepare a plan for the real world.

If you thought it was a challenge accommodating 25,000 refugees arriving legally, imagine what it will be like when they simply have to cross the largest unprotected border avoiding the law.

I have no idea what the solution is, but we cannot hide our head in the sand, and pretend it’s just another Justin selfie party.

Nor should our leaders.

Do Hammertonians wanna' talk new arena?

Regina beat out Hamilton in a bid to host the Memorial Cup next year on the 100th anniversary of the Canadian junior hockey championship.

Hamilton Bulldog owner Michael Andlauer said on CHML there were many factors in the decision but the main reason seems to be the aging First Ontario Centre.

Which also means we won’t be getting any time soon, either.

Regina, as a city, has much less to offer but they do have a state of the art facility (that despite being much smaller) outshines the old Copp’s Coliseum.

At the end of the day, after a botched stadium fiasco and hopefully more successful LRT, I’m not sure Hamiltonians have the appetite to discuss a new arena.

OR you could say, since we’re maxing out the credit card why not a complete downtown reno, arena and LRT?

Should make for some feisty discussions around the old barn we call city hall.

At least this may guarantee an LRT stop at Bay, although with our council, there is no such thing.

Trump is his own worst enemy...

Feb 21, 2017 5:00 AM

Here is another example of President Donald Trump creating his own problems, due to his off the cuff irresponsible remarks, and then blaming it on everyone else.

On Saturday when Trump was speaking in Florida about terrorism in Europe he said, “Look what’s happening last night in Sweden”

A former Swedish minister tweeted” Sweden? Terror attack? What has he been smoking? Questions abound.”

Trump later clarified he was referring to a Fox News segment reporting crime has risen in Sweden with increased immigration. But no attack the night before.

Trump supporters are saying he never said there was a terror attack in Sweden.

That’s the problem, he spouts off with open ended comments and never clarifies anything, then cries ‘fake news’ like a big baby leaving his aides to try to decode what he said.

He seems to enjoy keeping Americans in suspense about the issue of the day rather than lead with clarification.

Maybe that’s why his current travel ban never got through the courts. It’s tougher to B.S. a judge than voters.  

Donald Trump may have his own good intention, but it’s lost in his egotistical game that keeps the world guessing.

When confusion is your only strength, you have to wonder if he even has a realistic plan.

I’m Scott Thompson.
