The city [Toronto] should neither help nor encourage these people to stay, argued Mr. Minnan-Wong, who asked city council to support the federal government’s approach to legal immigration, and endorse deporting people who are in the country illegally.
“They are an insult to every immigrant who played by the rules to get into this country,” he said. “It sends a message to the world that it is OK to break the law to come to Canada, and it says that the city of Toronto is an accomplice to this lawbreaking.”Cue exploding leftist heads.
