Like federal like provincial...

It's the same old Fiberal story... your money - their friends...

An Iranian community group, whose members include Ontario Liberals, received a $200,000 immigrant aid grant from the provincial government only three weeks after it was registered as a charity.

The centre was first listed with the Canada Customs and Revenue Agency as a charitable organization in the category "protection of animals," but later was changed to the category "recreation, playgrounds and vacation camps."

Its directors include the Liberal candidate for the new riding of Richmond Hill in the Oct. 10 provincial election and the riding association president, whose North York law office is listed as the charity's mailing address.
Thank you Dalton McGuinty.

UPDATE: 21 Apr - McGuinty lets bribe to Iranians slide...
"I think we can do a better job and I think that we have to do a better job," Mr. McGuinty told reporters yesterday. "We're going to have to look at it."

The government says the unnamed spending program is designed to enhance diversity and settlement projects for new immigrants.
While the Fiberals "look at it", Conservatives call for an investigation...
Conservative opposition leader John Tory called for an investigation by the auditor general into the matter and said he planned to introduce a motion compelling officials to testify before a committee on the matter.

If, in the deeply unfortunate case that this turns out to be a front for some Mullahcratic/Terrrorist bunch, this will have been one of the funnier bureaucratic errors I've seen.

Immigrants are too expensive for Canadian taxpayers. Immigration should be stopped. Liberal corruption and malfeasance should be stopped too, but it appears Liberals are inherently corrupt when ever they have power over people's money.

Watch for some new party memberships and campaign donations to the liberals to come from this agency & its members.

immigrants themselves aren't the problem. my parents were immigrants... who became canadians

it's immigrants who want to set little hives of foreign intrigue who are causing the problem.

if you come here... forget all the tribal, clannish customs and embrace being canadian.
