  Don´t Vote Conservative!

With the NDP and Jack Layton holding the #1 spot in Quebec Mr. Harper may be totally out of a job.

I jumped for joy when Jack Layton asked Harper during the leaders debate, "Why do some Canadians have to wait ten years to get their parents into Canada?"

42 months for CIC to confirm, I am a Canadian and I meet the Low Income cutoff. WHY?

unfortunately, immigration is not the only issue in this election.

As the immigrant population grows, so will the global wait list for family class. It is a matter of math as well as policy.

My Mom is waiting for geriatric medical care and there is no room for her. Until that problem is resolved, I would prefer not to exacerbate the problem by adding more potential clients to the waitlist.

Expected comments from .... Sharron as usual.

They put patients on waiting list if their condition is not life threatening, same as you go to ER, triage nurse will examine you, if you seems to be somewhat normal, she will ask you to wait until your condition gets worst. Why ? because ER is for emergencies.

119.244 - if you were within half a mile of me, I would come over an break your face. Given what my Mother has endured this past 18 days, I would say no family class immigration PERIOD but I have a little more civility than that - unlike you.

Roy, your comment to DocD is uncalled for. If you don´t want people to express their personal view, don´t print such contraversial posts.

Sorry to hear about your Mothers situation it obviously brings you much pain.

I do fail to see why a group of people in the Immigration Business expressing their views that if you want fairer immigration policy you should not vote conservative is contraversial.

I must say Health Care is the Holly Grail in this country and it never gets dealt with properly. I do not think that any one issue deserves to be ignored.

DocD living in Alberta in a sea of blue signs must feel like he has to vote Conservative or it is the highway. His boss is a Conservative as well. I apologize to DocD if I offended him it was not my intention.

Today the latest poll puts the NDP in second place and that is definately a real shocker! Never happened before and in my area they have no hope.

Now for your math.

If Canadian`s do not want family reunification to be an objective of the Immigration act I say remove it from section three of IRPA. Since it has been an objective since day one and is extremely important for so many of us, I say fix it!

This week we had a foreign student murdered in Toronto while she was earning a Masters degree. Foreign students are sought out by all provinces and the Federal government to become permanent residents to keep their skills here.

This murder victim was an only child and if she became a permanent resident she of course would want to sponsor her parents.

Yes we have an aging society with far too few spaces available for any of us. Would it make a difference if the parents being sponsored were wealthy or younger? No, they are still loved just as much as another by their sponsors.

I have only a 73 year old Father In-Law left and I thank my lucky stars every day that he is so healthy he is now building his fifth 100 foot yacht to be launched this summer.

We decided twelve years ago not to sponsor my In-Laws because the processing times and that they would probably never get here because of their age and having to pass medicals.

We sufferred greatly as a family when my Mother In-Law passed away last spring. She suffered greatly for months with her daughter at her side. Would it have been any easier with them both here during this time, probably for us but not for her.

Family is special so there has to be a solution. There has to be a compromise from all those Canadian´s who have long ago brought their parents here.

Sharon,
I feel sorry for your mother, but why your .....is burning? FYI, beside F.P., most of the medical specialist are immigrants. All the hospitals has the same policy what i told you and you can Ask your mother´s doctor. We should not throw Seniors in the nursing homes. Studies proved that their health improves when they are living along their family. The government is the one who keep cutting medical in the budget to increase their surpluses. vote conservative and hopefully by the time of next elections, their will be no more government funded health insurance.

That´s fine Roy, I am not offended by any means. All I said was that the NDP isn´t for me. That´s all.

Controversial post indeed.

I pushed the enter button to quick.

See... in my line of work, my job and training is not to question the legislation, whether I like some laws or not, it is not my position to say yey or ney.

My job is to enforce the law where personal feelings in most cases are absent.

When you do something over and over again for so many years and you hear stories over and over again at the end you can´t go with the puppy face and/or someone´s smile anymore. You listen... see how it fits in the current legislation and make a decision.

My point is that regardless what party is in power, there are always things that are going to be very positive and some others that ..not so much.
At the end, I am back to square one.

We don´t make the law. We just enforce it.

Let me say that most CBSA Officers enforce the Law fairly. Like in any group there is always that one individual. You can not throw out the whole basket for one bad apple.

For some reason DocD I think your fair.
