M-103 on Steroids – The Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration
Here we thought Motion M-103 was a real and present danger to our Charter Rights. The Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration stands to do so on an unprecedented scale as host populations are prepped to better accept a massive migrant influx. These preparations include the need to “eliminate all forms of discrimination, including racism, xenophobia and intolerance against migrants and their families”. Does this sound like M-103’s call to “quell” a “rising tide of hate and fear” to you? All this even as the Compact calls for the transfer of wealth to countries of migrant origin, the expenditure of additional provincial health and education resources to service an exploding migrant population, the flooding of job markets with cheap labour and the coordination of border controls with international authorities.
