Winter is closing in on Canada, so the Liberal government says Asylum seekers need heated trailers paid for my taxpayers.
Via Toronto Sun:
OTTAWA — The Liberal government is thinking about buying trailers to keep asylum seekers currently living in tents at the U.S. border safe from the cold winter.
“These tents do have heaters, but we also have a very, very cold winter in this country and so we are, as a precautionary measure, looking at the possibility of trailers,” Transport Minister Marc Garneau said Friday after meeting the federal-provincial task force charged with managing an unprecedented flow of asylum seekers.
“We’re just doing our homework so that we are, if necessary, prepared for things that could develop over the coming months.”
More than 6,000 people have crossed illegally into Quebec from New York since July, the vast majority of them Haitians.
Many are staying in tents at the border in Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle, Que., as they await processing, but the federal government has issued a tender notice seeking suppliers who would be able to provide winterized trailers — on six weeks’ notice — to accommodate 200 people.
