LETTER: Trudeau shouldn’t sign UN Global Compact for Migration

A letter to the editor by Christopher Wisdom

Dear editor:

On Dec. 10, Trudeau will sign this agreement.

Anyone and all will have full right to come to Canada.

This is what Trudeau is wanting us to agree to.

We will be the leading country, as so many other countries have pulled out of this agreement and have denounced it.

Indeed, if this international agreement is implemented by signatory states, it practically means an end to controlled migration and borders as we know it.

The agreement does not distinguish between refugees and migrants anymore.

Thus even illegal migrants can no longer be deported. In fact, it will be the end of the very notion of an “illegal migrant.”

Illegal border crossings will no longer be considered a crime – since migration will be considered to be a “human right.”

One of the “guiding principles” is a “whole-of-society approach” to promoting mass migration, including the role of the media.

It also calls upon governments to “promote independent, objective and quality reporting… and stopping allocation of public funding or material support to media outlets that systematically promote intolerance, xenophobia, racism and other forms of discrimination towards migrants.”

So much for a free press.
