You know, you can help them in ways that don't involve potentially exposing the people of your country to the ravages of Islamic terrorism. You can send them aid, organize a relief effort, and stuff like that. It's absurd how people think the only way to help them is to bring them, en masse, into their nation.

By the time Trudeau gets done with our country you are going to have to put us on the banned list because all the terrorists will be living in Canada. He is such a goof.

Lost in the shuffle about all this is the fact that President B. Hussein Obama instituted a ban on Iraqi citizens for SIX MONTHS in 2011 after it was discovered two al-Qaida-Iraq terrorists were living as “refugees” in Kentucky and admitted in court they’d attacked U.S. soldiers in Iraq. Do you remember that? No probably not, because it barely caused a ripple in the mainstream media. Funny how that works.

Didn't they already try to go to canada when Trump won and were stonewalled by Canada's legitimate immigration laws? Well, good luck with that.

I love Trudeau's example and the Mexican President Nieto. We live in the greatest country on Earth. And unfortunately we cannot accept the orange man as president of the USA because he is mean; a bully.

Thank you for stepping up. We need to give you our Statue of Liberty. You deserve it more than we do. It is a very sad time to be an American.

No, it is not a"ban" to issue a temporary moratorium on those coming from only a FEW countries with whom we've no established relationship to rely upon when verifying immigrants. We have ZERO manner of checking migrants from state sponsors of terror and had we, perhaps the San Bernardino terrorists would have been stopped. Is the timing chaotic? Perhaps -- but instead of hearing constructive alternatives for rolling out this very needed and completely legal order I only hear complaints that it was done. Bottom line: This needed to happen. The safety of our citizens is the number one priority of the government, the president -- not the considerations of anyone else. If this upsets you, I suggest you do a thorough examination of other countries' immigration laws as every country I have visited is way more stringent on entry than the US. **TO ADD: Obama several times issued the same moratorium on migrant entry. No outrage then.

Justine Trudeau has made me and my fellow Canadians proud offering refuge to refugees who are finding the US border closed. Canada should increase the number of Syrian refugees to possibly 200,000 or more if they can be supported. My fellow Canadians should stand up to the plate and contribute $10,000 per refugee per year for the next five years out of their annual incomes!!! Talk is cheap. Lets see some action!!

They first left a pig's head at the Mosque and then these horrors happen to the poor worshippers. This is so against the peaceful values of the beautiful Canada that we all love! 'Vested special interest media rags' have been inflaming ordinary citizens against Muslims for far too long through fear mongering that some imaginary Sharia law (that no one can see or find in their society), was going to be imposed on them against their will. This results in ignorant Fox News watchers and Sun News type readers believing that Muslims are some sort of demons or monsters like vampires that garlic would ward off. Reflective of this stupidity, these fool's then substitute bacon, pig's heads or some other pork product for garlic in their self-created demonic delusions about Muslims. These ignoramuses especially think that by defiling Muslim places of worship, Muslim gathering places and so on by leaving pork products that they will ward off imaginary 'Muslim demons'. All that this type of behaviour demonstrates is the ignorance that these wilfully ill-informed people are wallowing in and how they lose their own humanity by demonizing innocent vulnerable members of their community who practice Islam by thinking that pork products will ward off Muslims like garlic wards off vampires. These people just cannot grasp that pork is only a dietary restriction and nothing more for Muslims who are human beings just like everyone else. From that, these disgusting sociopaths then proceed to murdering innocents!

Thank God those American refugees and celebrities who cannot accept living under POTUS Trump have some place to settle. Thank you Canada. Please bear with them for eight years.

To those trolls spewing hate a few bits of info: yes, Canadians pay high taxes, so do all Nordic peoples. We may complain, but in the end we understand that our taxes allow us to have a compassionate society with the rule of law. I always deducted around 45% of my income and never once did I complain because I choose to live in a society that tries to be inclusive and address the needs of all who live within its borders. Americans pay low taxes and you can't even reduce your child mortality rate and your students are not really sure who George Washington was. Canada welcomes immigrants and refugees not just because it's the decent thing to do but because it makes good economic policy sense. Any country should be so lucky to attract the brightest and most innovative minds of the world (regardless of their faith or skin colour). So, to the Trump trolls I offer the suggestion that you hang yourselves with your narrow mindedness and let the rest of the world (Canada included) get on with the business of living and living well.

Untill Canada gets invaded and taken over by feminist Girl Scouts. They'll force all of the men into hard labor going door to door selling Thin Mints. Then all the muslim men will self deport if they have to work.

Will they take millions of refugees? He has set a number for his country to take in. We all can't continue to take in millions and us working citizens pay and pay for what benefits they sow. We are taxed to death now, our take home pay is puddly! We need industry here again too to help employ everyone that's even here now!

The insanity from the world wide globalists and liberals in general is scary. They feel that their point of view and opinions are the 'right' ones and that anybody who disagrees with them must be eliminated. They are a bunch of criminals who had a grip on power all over he world and now are becoming dangerous because they feel the power slipping.
