What the ... government stupidity?!?!?!?

I always say that stupidity is universal. It doesn't matter where you go you will encounter it. The Canadian Government, through the Immigration Department, is a prime example of that.

It was reported in the news yesterday that a Korean family that came to Canada in 2003 has until June 30th to return to leave. Why? Their youngest son is autistic with epilepsy and some asshole bureaucrat took 8 years to do a cost benefit analysis and decide that the boy cannot come to Canada. EIGHT FUCKING YEARS after they arrived! The family has a store, the eldest son is studying in University and the Government has decided that the whole family is not welcome because their youngest, special needs, son will cost too much. What a bunch of cold hearted money obsessed assholes!

I am disgusted by this. It is everything that is wrong with Governments and bureaucracies.

The families lawyer is trying to get them allowed in on compassionate and humanitarian grounds. Unfortunately, it is hard to expect compassion from the Harper Government.

Contact your Member of Parliament and tell them what you think of this stupidity! If you aren't Canadian feel free to contact our Embassy or Government and let them know what you think of this. Canada the compassionate society? Not if these folks are kicked out.

You can email the Prime Minister (or at least his office) or go to his website and send a message.

Citizenship and Immigration Canada has a website you can visit as well. I found it funny in a sick way to see the headline on their website "Protecting Foreign Workers" when I opened the page.


  1. That's really too bad. Isn't there any kind of political culture in Canada that praises "small business owners," as being the salt of the earth?

    Actually I remember a similar story from my hometown. There was a guy who owned a middle eastern restaurant.


  2. The government supposedly thinks that way ... time for them to prove it.
