Roxanne James Asks Should Refugees Expect A Chocolate On Their Pillow? Conservative MP Roxanne James running for re-election in SCARBOROUGH CENTRE
Scarborough Centre MP Roxanne James was questioning a witness about the living conditions for refugees in detention. Saying, “I sometimes wonder if the opposition would like to provide a five-star hotel, with a chocolate on the pillow every morning.”
“Although it’s not a five-star hotel, I’m sure these facilities provide adequate accommodation for the people who come to Canada by irregular methods.”
Roxanne James Suggests Asylum Seekers Come To Canada For Free Health Care. Conservative MP Roxanne James running for re-election in SCARBOROUGH CENTRE.
Scarborough Centre MP Roxanne James questions Professor Catherine Dauvergne, an expert on Refugees. But all MP James seems to want to get to the bottom of is how Refugees come to Canada for the Welfare and free Health Care.
Saying, “We heard that within the European Union there are 27 countries, so someone from one particular country could choose to go to another country that’s very close by if they were fleeing for their life or in fear of persecution.”
“Why would someone come all the way to Canada and submit a claim as a refugee fearing for their life, as opposed to going to another country where they would have protection immediately?”
“why come to Canada as a refugee claimant, not come the proper way with a visa, permanent residency, and so forth, and then abandon their claim? To me it doesn’t make sense to say they can’t go to another European Union country and receive that protection when they come to Canada, accept benefits for one to two years, and then don’t show up for their hearing. They abandon their claim, voluntarily leave, and go back to their country of origin. I don’t think we’ve actually had an answer that makes sense to the people who may be listening to this committee today.
As a separate side note, when we talk about the European Union, would you say that the health benefits and the welfare system here in Canada are far better than in countries in the European Union? Do you know that answer?”
“We had someone here from the Taxpayers Federation who indicated it costs Canadian taxpayers about $50,000 per refugee claimant. We have some figures: $170 million per year in benefits, such as welfare, health benefits, etc.”
Roxanne James Unbelievable RUDENESS Towards Witnesses AT Committee. Conservative MP Roxanne James running for re-election in SCARBOROUGH CENTRE
Scarborough Centre MP Roxanne James is synonymous for this characteristic. Her unbelievable rudeness towards witnesses at committee. There are so many examples of her cutting people off, not letting people finish a sentence and just being downright nasty and rude.
In this committee hearing Roxanne takes on two immigration lawyers and challenges them on their experience in immigration matters. This despite her not having any background in immigration, as her previous occupation was a real estate agent.
She gets called out for her rudeness by the chair, not once but twice!
Roxanne James Canada Misinformed re: C-51 TheOpenMedia Call That Insulting. Conservative MP Roxanne James running for re-election in SCARBOROUGH CENTRE
Scarborough Centre MP Roxanne James at the committee hearings in March. MP James completely ignored Steve Anderson from Open Media. She just directed her comments to the two other witnesses who supported the legislation. One or two questions were asked, but MP James went into a long tirade on how the public doesn’t understand Bill C-51, saying no one has actually read the bill.
This prompted a rebuke from Open Media Steve Anderson, one of the few witnesses who has taken her on for her divisive rhetoric over the years.
Saying “I just want to say… I found that the comments mentioned a second ago from MP James kind of insinuate that Canadians are not informed and are stupid. I find that really distasteful for a public office holder.”
Roxanne James responded by saying she wasn’t calling Canadians stupid and was just trying to make a point about “misinformation” surrounding the bill.
Which Steve Anderson responded “Okay. I think we should encourage Canadians to take part in these debates. I think they are amazingly informed and engaged, and that is something that we want to honour and encourage and not disrespect.”
Steve Anderson would say Roxanne James was “arrogant and elitist”
“So to have her [James] step up there and try to put all that down, it just felt really insulting to Canadians.
“It was clear to me what she was saying, so I just kind of called her out,” he said.
Roxanne James UNAPOLOGETIC Being Rude To Witness Despite Reprimand. Conservative MP Roxanne James running for re-election in Scarborough Centre.
Scarborough Centre MP Roxanne James is at it AGAIN.
Being rude, cutting off witnesses and just being downright nasty and rude.
In this committee hearing Roxanne James has no interest in what this immigration lawyer has to say. Instead just cutting him off and interrupting his answers when she doesn’t like what she is hearing. Challenging them on their experience in immigration matters. This despite her not having any background in immigration, as her previous occupation was a real estate agent.
Again like the previous time, she gets called out for her rudeness by the chair, not once but twice! Telling her their is no excuse for not being courtesy towards witness.
But this Roxanne is completely UNAPOLOGETIC. Saying as an MP it is her decision on how to treat witnesses, not the chair!
