  In Canada Lesbian Lovers Can Immigrate Far Easier than Normal Wives

"Canada is becoming a repository for people in homosexual relationships" says REAL women VP

By John-Henry Westen
TORONTO, August 21, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The Times of India reports that a lesbian in the Indian city of Ahmadabad has received permanent residency in Canada in less than six months.? "Sexual preference helped a 29-year-old woman from the city secure a permanent resident (PR) visa to Canada," says the report.? "At a time when most wannabe immigrants are condemned to waiting endlessly for the coveted visa, the girl considers herself lucky to get the visa in less than six months."? The swiftness is all the more surprising since the woman´s purported lesbian lover only immigrated to Canada from the same city in India last year.
That news came as a shock to the?Baklinski family who live in the Ottawa Valley in Ontario.? Three brothers from the family married women from the United States after attending US colleges.? However attaining permanent resident status for their wives has been a prolonged nightmare compared to the relative ease with which the lesbian from India immigrated.
Samantha Baklinski, originally from near Dallas in Texas, told LifeSiteNews.com that she first applied for permanent residence status in April 2004, a few months after marrying Joseph Baklinski, a Canadian citizen by birth.? After several months she was informed that there were missing parts of her application but after careful review she and her husband found that it was in fact complete.? They nevertheless applied again in February of this year but have still not heard back from Immigration Canada.??
Over the course of the two years Samantha gave birth to a son and since she did not have her papers she was not covered under provincial medical insurance and the couple was forced to pay for the medical expenses out of pocket.
A similar situation took place with Veronica Baklinski, originally from Seattle Washington.? Her husband Andrew Baklinski - a Canadian by birth - applied to be her sponsor for immigration in May 2001.? However, Veronica did not receive a permanent residency till July 2003, just two weeks prior to her giving birth to her first child.? The reason her application was problematic was due to the pregnancy since immigration required an x-ray which, given her pregnancy, was not possible.
Another Baklinski wife, Jenny Baklinski who hails originally from Butte, Montana filed for permanent residency this February.? Given the problems her sisters-in-law experienced, Jenny filed her application through the office of her local politician so as to have the process expedited.? However, Mrs. Baklinski informed LifeSiteNews.com that she and her husband Tim were informed that the immigration offices are currently processing applications from last November, and her delay in receiving her status would be affected accordingly.
Gwen Landolt, Vice President of Real Women Canada told LifeSiteNews.com that the situation was suspicious.? "It seems lesbians and gays are getting priority," said Landolt.?
"Canada is becoming a repository for people in homosexual relationships," she said, since we have an open door policy when it comes to immigration on these terms.? Moreover, said Landolt, the system is wide open to abuse.
A former legal counsel for Immigration Canada, Landolt explained that homosexual activists fought a policy which required that common law couples had to be residing together for three years prior to their being considered spousal relations and thus allowed to apply for permanent residency in Canada on a spousal application.? With that requirement out of the way, there is an easy loophole for fraudulent appeals for immigration.

As a Canadian I wonder why others care what goes on in private in another persons bedroom. Why some think a couple should be kept apart longer then an engineer that has no family in Canada.

Sexual preference did not help and no Canadian would accept that. The one EXAMPLE that compares itself had spouses in the states does not state the status of their wives in the US. If those wives were Americans they would have driven across the border and stayed with their husbands during the processing. MAYBE THERE WAS A QUESTION REGARDING THEIR SECURITY CLEARANCE.

Filing an application incomplete or by using a politician (or employee of)who is not authorized representative, causes problems. Why did all the three brothers marry at the same time? That could lead to a question or two.

WHAT GETS ME IS ANYONE WHO IS A REGULAR ON THIS FORUM KNOWS IF YOU MAKE A MISTAKE ON YOUR APPLICATION IT CAUSES DELAYS AND DIFFERENT VISA POSTS HAVE DIFFERENT PROCESSING TIMES, THIS IS ANOTHER ATTEMPT TO SAY CANADA IS A BAD PLACE AND I AM TIRED OF HEARING THIS, SO BJ IF YOU AGREE WITH THIS STORY, GET OUT!

It´s great that the Canadian courts [and later Parliament] saw fit to allow same sex marriages and immigration.

The only problem is that Harper´s government, if in power long enough, intends to overturn this, and any other protections in law for gays.

He´s said this at lesser publicized events for conservative organizations.

That said, I will always give Canada credit for having some great progressive people.

It is sad thought that this doesn´t carry over very much into the workforce, and the vast majority of immigrants to Canada have a terrible time finding any meaningful employment, whether they are gay or ´straight´.

Gay and lesbian couples will always have protection under Canadian law and the Constitution. That is not up for discussion (you may wish to understand Canadian politics/law a little better).

Hopefully your wonderful US will catch up one day.

Its been basically approved since 1967 when they changed the Canadian Crimminal Code to state what takes place in a private place between two consenting adults is not the governments business.

What a politician says he/she will do and what they actually do is another thing.

Sharon,

I hate to disagree with you on this topic and I hope that you are correct with what you said above, and that I turn out to be wrong.

But what you don´t realize is that the Conservative party of Canada has a lot of connection with the right wing organizations in the USA. AND - they have an agenda of muting the courts and ignoring the Charter of Rights in Canada on gays.

Again, on this topic, I hope you turn out to be correct. But know that the right wing in both countries, USA and Canada is very well organized and funded and they LOVE political football issues like gay marriage.

Sadly, and again I hope I´m wrong.

David
