You're pissin' off the stripper lobby...

You must be doin' something right.

-- OTTAWA -- The RCMP have beefed up security around Immigration Minister Diane Finley in response to threats from criminal groups that oppose her efforts to block foreign strippers from entering Canada, federal officials said yesterday.

Officials said the extra security flows directly from Bill C-17, which would limit the number of work visas given to foreign strippers.
Under the previous Liberal regime it was full speed ahead and damn the torpedoes... despite the unsavory nature of the business.
In 2004, then-immigration-minister Judy Sgro cancelled a blanket authorization for work permits to strippers after it was revealed that her office granted a visa extension to a Romanian stripper who had worked on her election campaign.

Another former Liberal immigration minister, Joe Volpe, said that criminal groups are involved in strip clubs and have “aggressively lobbied” federal civil servants to obtain work visas for foreign strippers.
Yeah... I don't think I'd put extra strippers at the top of my agenda.

But then again... I'm a Conservative.

FROM THE COMMENTS:
"Now the Conservatives plan to stop moving strippers to the front of the immigration line and try to prevent exploitation. Again, the Liberals are against this?"

"We've got immigrant doctors driving cabs and badly needed tradespeople not even able to get into the country. But Liberals want to ensure the flow of new strippers and exploited sex trade workers continues!"

"I guess that group must form a core part of their voter base?"
And another...
"The Conservatives should leave well enough alone and let foreign exotic dancers into Canada and out of countries where they face regular exploitation, says Guidy Mamann, a Toronto lawyer who specializes in immigration issues."
Yeah sure, Guidy... "Let my clients go!"

I'll never understand the screwed up thinking of Liberals on immigration issues (well, and every other issue).

First, we can't get enough immigrants with the skills that the country currently needs. Therefore the Conservatives introduce a bill to allow increased selection about immigrants to fast-track the trades we need. Seems logical to those of us with brains? Apparently not to a Liberal.

Now the Conservatives plan to stop moving strippers to the front of the immigration line and try to prevent exploitation. Again, the Liberals are against this?

Unreal how unfettered immigration has let into this country the kind of thugs one reads about in dysfunctional nations... the kind who think nothing of threatening elected officials who seek to impose the law. And this time, the jihadists have little to do with it. Think Russian mafia - not Tony Soprano's kind of thugs: he'd be on our side for this one... the russkie mobsters are just plain psycho.

Jeffy, dude... I follow your meanderings from blog to blog...

Do you EVER have anything intelligent to contribute? You're like the drunk, over-affectionate uncle that no one wants to be near at family reunions - just plain creepy.

Is your mother proud of you, sunshine? Is she?

The libranos, are getting their money laundering and extra curricular activities cut off. That must hurt.

Okay Jeff. I'll look past your obvious trolling and simply ask... if it's not "really about the strippers", what, in your red world, is it? And I'll even go so far as to say that I agree with you in that I don't think it's about strippers at all. It's about our fundamentally flawed immigration system. It can't get revamped fast enough for me...

Strippers and their patrons represent the highest moral standards of the Liberal Party, the people of Canada really don't want to know who represents the lowest. Ignorance is bliss.

So let's see - we have a Conservative MP being threatened by organized crime and what do the MSM focus on .....

a jailed Canadian in Mexico of her own volition.

the fact the Tories supposedly Stole the last election.

Yep, their priorities are right on?

After all - wouldn't want to discuss an immigration minister who wants to take on organized crime now would we!!!

Oh and Jeff - guess we all know where your priorities lie.

Just when I thought lawyers were evolving into something resembling humans:

"The Conservatives should leave well enough alone and let foreign exotic dancers into Canada and out of countries where they face regular exploitation, says Guidy Mamann, a Toronto lawyer who specializes in immigration issues."

Got that, folks? Those Hells Angels don't regularly exploit strippers. I mean, they get on day a month off, for instance...

Heh. Just noticed "Gweedy Mann..."
