Doug Ford is right, the border crisis is Trudeau’s mess

Finally Canada has a politician that speaks aloud what we all think, the border crisis is Justin Trudeau’s fault.

Most Canadians would agree that crossing the border illegally into Canada needs to be stopped or controlled a little better.

It’s not illegal to cross to seek asylum in Canada, but you have to do it at legal entry ports, not through a bush road in Quebec.

Justin Trudeau invited foreigners to come to Canada after US president Donald Trump announced the travel ban that former president Barack Obama put together.

“To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength #WelcomeToCanada,” Trudeau said on Twitter Jan. 28, 2017.

Today a spokesman for Ford said the federal government has encouraged people to cross into Canada illegally and continues to usher people across the U.S.-Quebec border into Ontario.

“This has resulted in a housing crisis and threats to the services that Ontario families depend on.”

“This mess was 100 per cent the result of the federal government, and the federal government should foot 100 per cent of the bills.”

Is Ford right? He is, and Justin Trudeau needs to do something to fix it because it’s getting worse daily.
