Adieu, mon bien-aimé Montréal!


Mayor Denis Coderre invites social mayhem and ultimate ruination by declaring Montreal a sanctuary city.

Coderre is encouraging those whose refugee claims have been deemed bogus to stay in the country illegally.

He is telling temporary foreign workers who have overstayed their visas to thumb unknown-5their noses at the law. That law currently gives them abundant recourse, including appealing to the federal minister of immigration to stay here on compassionate and humanitarian grounds.

Instead, Coderre would encourage the creation of a permanent underclass of undocumented illegal immigrants willfully hidden from one level of government by another.

All to win votes among progressives. —Konrad Yakabuski
