Don Martin starts out his column with the following sentence:

First a hug, then the hammer.
The headline for the article suggests that this is a bad thing, but let's look at it closer...

Why is it a bad thing if unsuccessful refugee claimants are shown a quick exit after they are judged unworthy to become Canadian.

The politically correct theory being floated is that everyone DESERVES to live in Canada, regardless of how they got into the country. This theory extends that everyone living in Canada DESERVES to be helped out via the social safety net. More often than not, however, that isn't the case.

It SHOULD be the case that those people who have unsuccessfully applied for refugee status should be given a quick exit. Their welfare shouldn't be our problem. It is the country's welfare that should be our primary concern.
