(Toronto Sun)   I know we asked you to come to the airport this morning so we could deport you, but we seem to have lost your file. Can you come back tomorrow?   ( divider line

2004-03-01 02:01:49 AM  
I'm not seeing much incentive to come back tomorrow.

There are still people on Fark who don't understand how the "Boobies" thing works?

Send me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore,
Send these, your homeless, tempest tossed to me.
I lift my lamp beside your golden door?

Heavy handed.

Completely agree with repatriating those who don't meet the visa-immigration-citizenship requirements, but this family appears to have done nothing wrong except overstay their permit.

Common courtesy should be extended.

Does anyone know where to get a copy of Sim city 4? ive been looking on kazaa for like a month now..
2004-03-01 02:18:28 AM  
Only one that read the article?

On top of all that, they were told they could leave today if they paid $600 (Canadian I suppose).

Hmm...the choices. Pay for my own deportation, or let America Jr. pay for it tomorrow.
2004-03-01 02:19:04 AM  
But wait, I thought Canada was a liberal utopia, the true land of the free!
2004-03-01 02:22:43 AM  

Might I suggest Amazon?

It's twenty bones ya foo'.

'America Jr.' Bwahahaha!!!

canada sucks.
2004-03-01 03:05:48 AM  
i was about to blame this on bush.... whoops

asinine indeed. by all accounts it seems this family has a genuine interest to better their life; its the people that come here (referring to the u.s. again), syphon SS and take our jobs that SHOULD get a foot in the ass out the door.

Let me pay and leave
Your country is repressive
France has better laws.

im noticing a pattern: uber-mod trick to make thrilla's 1:57 post stay at the bottom to razz him about his, um, primary correspondance attempt?
2004-03-01 03:45:33 AM  
How the hell can you get deported from canada?
2004-03-01 03:49:32 AM

2004-03-01 04:12:04 AM

2004-03-01 07:33:07 AM  
I don't even know what a Canada is, but it still sucks...
2004-03-01 08:12:07 AM  
When I look around me, I can't believe what I see
It seems as if this country has lost its will to live
The economy is lousy, we barely have an army
But we can still stand proudly cuz Canada's really big
We're the second largest country on this planet earth
And if Russia keeps on shrinking then soon we'll be
(As long as we keep Quebec)
The USA has tanks and Switzerland has banks
They can keep them thanks, they just don't amount
Cuz when you get down to it, you find out what the truth
It isn't what you do with it its the size that counts
Most people will tell you that France is pretty large
But you can put fourteen France's into this land of ours
(It's take a lot of work, It'd take a whole lot of work)

"Then they said if you want to go today you have to pay $600," said Dominguez, who was personally commended for community service by MP Judy Sgro, now immigration minister."

It seems all that "more rightgeous than the US" canadian propaganda was bunch of b.s. I guess Canadians are a bunch of selfish rude jerkoffs after all as well! We need an [ASSHOLE] tag badly.
2004-03-01 09:39:07 AM  
What kind of name is 'Sgro?' She sounds really charming: promotion, apparent apathy, and to round it off, unavailable for comment.

The Canadians are funny in how they deport people. Always so polite.

I had a co-worker who did not have the proper papers
(visa) fly into Canada. It was on a weekend so they ask
him to come back on Monday so they could deport him.

I went once without the proper paperwork for my test equipment. Canadian customs had me separate all my
personal belongings so they could seize only the
equipment. All very polite and nice.
2004-03-01 09:51:17 AM  

Only "kindve"? More like "entirly."
2004-03-01 10:27:13 AM  
I really don't get it.

On topic, I would have thought that they'd detain people they were going to deport.
2004-03-01 10:50:22 AM  
kindve_an_idiot: If you can't afford the 20 bux a legit copy of Sim City 4 will cost you, you probably can't afford the massive computer you will need to run the game at anything more than a crawl.

More Like "Mrs Stench"

Just rent a car, drive to Miami and tell everyone you are Cuban. Problem solved.
2004-03-01 01:57:33 PM  
I'll come back tomorrow, because I get the Boobies on this thread!!!

When the guards didn't show up, the family hitched a ride with Toronto Sun photographer Dave Thomas.
