Hell No, eh?

So much for playing PC nonsense games:
TORONTO - Canada is following in Australia's footsteps and has closed its doors, effectively immediately, to people from the West African countries battling Ebola.
In a move that puts Canada at odds with the World Health Organization, the federal government said Friday it is suspending the issuance of visas for residents and nationals of countries with "widespread and persistent-intense transmission" of Ebola virus disease. As well, work on permanent residence applications for people from the affected countries is also being suspended.
The stress on countries with widespread transmission provides an out for the United States, which currently still has at least one active Ebola case within its borders. At present only three countries meet the definition of widespread and persistent Ebola transmission: Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia."The precautionary measures announced today build on actions we have taken to protect the health and safety of Canadians here at home," the news release quoted Immigration Minister Alexander as saying.


  1. Hickox has worked for the CDC since at least 2012. go here to see her pay:

  2. I would not wait and quarantine the US also.
    With our open borders policy the US is a greater danger to Canada than any African country.
    It could very well turn out Mexico will close their border with the US as well.

  3. We are going to look pretty damn silly when Mexico throws up the wall.
