Sounds like we are adopting the "European" model. At 250-500 migrants arriving daily, by the end of the month the camp may have 7000+ migrants in it...

MONTREAL (Reuters) - Canada has deployed soldiers to erect tents near the U.S. border to temporarily house hundreds of asylum seekers crossing from New York state, officials said on Wednesday, an influx of mostly Haitians prompted by fear of deportation by the U.S. government.

Around 250 asylum seekers are arriving each day in Montreal, the largest city in Canada's mainly French-speaking Quebec province. Quebec has opened its Olympic Stadium, a former hospital and a school among other places to house people.

Heated tents will accommodate up to 500 people as Canadian border officials process mainly Haitians walking into Canada from the United States.

Nearly 100 soldiers will be in Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle, across the border from Champlain, New York, to set up the tents and add to temporary facilities already organized by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and Canadian Border Services Agency.

The Canadian Armed Forces were aware of the difficult situation that requires significant resources, said Daniel Le Bouthillier, a spokesman at the Department of National Defence.

The military would have no role in security matters, Le Bouthillier said in emailed statement. "When the site is completed, the military will return to their home base."

Hundreds of Haitians have crossed into Quebec in recent weeks, spurred partly by false accounts of asylum seekers being able to immediately obtain residency after entering Canada.

"There is an enormous amount of fake information circulating saying that it is easy to come to Canada," said Marjorie Villefranche, general manager of Maison d'Haiti, a Montreal community center that assists Haitian immigrants.

"They are hearing that Canada doesn't deport people."

The Canadian immigration ministry, on its Facebook page on Aug. 5, discouraged illegal entries and noted that messages posted elsewhere online suggesting that Canada is inviting people to seek refugee status were wrong.

Canadian authorities accepted 50.5 percent of the 410 refugee claims by Haitians heard in 2016, government data showed.

Like the United States, Canada had a deportation ban on Haitians after a 2010 earthquake. More than 50,000 people affected by Haiti's earthquake have been allowed to remain in the United States under "temporary protected status" according to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

This year, the department extended their status through next January, but officials said in May that people covered under that status should begin acquiring travel documents to return to Haiti.

Canada's deportation ban, which was enacted after a 2004 coup and extended after the earthquake, expired in August 2016. Many Haitians who had been living in Canada for years have since raced to get permanent residency on humanitarian or compassionate grounds.

In the first half of 2017, more than 4,300 asylum seekers walked across the U.S. border into Canada. Even before the flow of Haitian asylum seekers Canada was on track to have the most refugee claims in almost a decade.

The administration of U.S. President Donald Trump has taken a tougher stance on immigration with plans to cut legal immigration by 50 percent over 10 years.

Hmm. Where could they have got that idea Mr. Prime Minister?

Oooooh, goody, I can't wait. I wonder if the royal douche will visit, to try to quell local anger and reassure rape victims, etc. once social order starts breaking down in the general areas surrounding the camp(s)

And so there it is folks!...

The writing was on the wall for all who refused to see it, but now it has arrived just as it has overseas where all the governments full of Social Justice Warriors bent over, dropped their pants and surrendered their national sovereignty to hordes of "migrants"

Not the "End of the beginning" as Churchill once said but

THE BEGINNING OF THE END!

We are not talking about some refugee camp on the border of Jordan, Lebanon or Sudan but a camp on the soil of CANADA!??.... seriously?

Perhaps Mick Jagger's Son should just completely go "all in" and raise UN flags above it?

This is what happens when those who are obsessed with their never ending "Govern by 24/7 PR STUNT" mentality issue completely IRRESPONSIBLE statements on social media.

EDIT: But of course the King of the North does not have any funds for "CANADIANS" suffering in BC...

He needs to funnel our tax payer money to set up (the first of many?) new Quebec Border Camps so that we can make a good first impression for all those "refugees" fleeing the HORRORS of the United States!??

Afterall, "we" invited them and according to our learned, wise King, they are BETTER than us because they chose to come here... not like the rest of us lazy, ungrateful types.

They are not migrants or refugees, they are illegal aliens in Canada and need to be deported immediately. If your first act as a want to be Canadian is criminal, we don't need you here.

Keep them in Quebec. See how long a "distinct society" will put up with them.

No welfare. No free anything. No taxpayer funded assistance what so ever !!! Sadly, the liberals will justify carrying them by saying that they will just commit crimes to survive if they dont give them free stuff. Nothing like paying people to not be criminals. So much better than actually stopping them from entering. Idiots.

Could you imagine the state that our selfie taking jackass would have us in if the Atlantic ocean wasnt between us an the main body of these illegal aliens ?

Quite true. It will make it easier for them to assimilate into the province and leech off la belle province. If they cross any provincial borders, treat them like the poor sods who get caught 'smuggling' beer and tobacco.

So here is my question:

Are they presenting at the border posts? In which case they should be turned away without proper visa's etc in place.

or are they sneaking across? In which case they are illegal immigrants and should be subject to the penalties imposed by the law like any other illegal immigrant.

Faith Goldy said in one report they actually speak Creole.

The RCMP has a welcoming centre right at the border. They tell them that what they are doing "is illegal (wink)" and then physically help them into the country... help them with their luggage, process them etc.

You've misspelled liberal, twice. I'll correct it.

There are no specific penalties for these people because a Liberal is a Liberal is a Liberal.

That is why they are coming here President Trump is saying no to any free stuff. So now we get them - hopefully we will not give them all 10.5 mill but who knows.

Wow, look at those yellow legged panty sniffers go, quite the pat downs by the way. Well if it keeps em from stealing our guns I guess....

I wonder who's side they'll be on if the large percent of them turn out to be terrorists. I would hope ours, but by the looks of it.

I don't think the Haitians will be terrorist but many may well turn to crime since they have a poor education and few skills.

I agree, if you can make it thru the winter in a tent, perhaps then you can stay, if you pay taxes and work like the rest of us. But alas, they said the tents will be heated, to hell with them.

Is it wrong of me to hope Quebec has an emergency referendum and finally becomes a "sovereign nation" so the border jumpers are stuck there and don't spread? Lol

Seriously tho, the problem isn't any better in MB.

With all the immigration and lowering birth rate of true Quebecers, soon the "distinct society" will be no more.
