The Trudeau Liberals have put out a tender notice looking for someone to build a refugee camp for them on the Canada-U.S. border. Within the next few weeks the government wants a series of tents and modular buildings to provide sleeping quarters, shower facilities and more at St-Bernard-de-Lacolle, Quebec.
The notice went up Thursday afternoon and closes this coming Wednesday.
In the notice, the government is seeking temporary housing that can handle 520 people over three seasons.
“These facilities will consist of heated, ventilated and illuminated heated canvas shelters for 3-season use,” reads the section of the notice on the sleeping quarters. While people crossing the border illegally at Roxham Road will be housed in tents the modular buildings will be used for quarantine spaces as well as toilet and shower facilities.
While the government would like to simply call this some temporary housing, this is clearly a refugee camp on Canadian soil for people fleeing the United States. Did you ever think that Canada would be hosting a refugee camp at the border with America?
This isn’t a failure of policy by Donald Trump and his decision to enforce American immigration laws, this is a failure of policy by Canada and one man in particular, Justin Trudeau. Trudeau put out his infamous tweet, #WelcometoCanada and the world took that as an invitation.
The people coming across now are not just Haitians that are looking not to be deported but according to the Quebec government the top countries of birth for people crossing include Nigeria, the United States, India and Saudi Arabia. It is well known to officials that many of those crossing at Roxham Road are in the United States solely to travel onto Canada.
