As Canadians leave for other countries around the world to seek leisure, discover other wonders, history and attractions of other countries many other nationalities seek the same by pursuing legitimate travel documents and Canadian visa’s but are denied entry to Canada once arriving. Tourists from around the world especially Eastern Europe, China, Africans, and Southern Americans are denied entry into Canada, specifically Toronto. These tourists have enough funding for their visit including pocket money and hotel reservation, but they are either accused of attempting to secure jobs in Canada or deemed strangers who do not know anyone in Canada.
Naturalized citizens of westernized countries whose background are of African descent are deemed not to be Europeans and are confiscated by CBSA and ensured their nationality and deported. Tourists obtain legitimate visa’s from Canadian embassies in their countries for visitation purposes and make payments for their tickets mounting to hundreds of dollars but upon arrival at the Canadian port of entry, they are arrested, detained indefinitely or deported. Many tourists to Canada have been arrested and detained for intending to discover Canada’s attractions however Canadians going to other countries are treated with respect, dignity and are provided with their demands adequately. CBSA is rejecting visitors illegally under the Vienna convention and their rights are stripped from them as visitors and false allegations to hold them accountable. The majority of these tourists are business owners, and could not afford to leave their already successful businesses to leave or work in Canada thereby abandoning their families just to live in Canada.
Canada, under the leadership of the CBSA is crafting a heinous image for Canada that is deteriorating the image outsiders see Canada to be. The CBSA are not exercising or reflecting these norms of Canadians, therefore Canada’s losing their outermost beauty and tolerance to the rampant behavior of CBSA officials. Many tourists and immigrants who are deported are beginning to have bad blood for Canada and are expecting to equally treat Canadians should they visit their countries in search for pleasure or discovery of attractions. Canada is globally known for their respect for human rights, equality and welcoming visitors and immigrants but are gradually losing this image and tolerance to CBSA who are being motivated by reformers who are reflecting their own need and greed for votes. Slamming doors on outsiders would only encourage outsiders to either close their doors on Canadians or treat them with injustice or abusive behavior. CBSA should not sacrifice Canadian visitation rights by being rampant and establishing false allegations on visitors to Canada who would leave but also encourage their countrymen to take similar actions based on their experience. If Canada does not need immigrants who have positively raised their economy in various aspects, and are in rejection of visitors and tourists, they must stop issuing such visa’s and make known to other governments and their people about their change in travelling requirements to Canada. People from different parts of the world are losing time and money in an attempt to visit Canada therefore standards in prevention of such laws may be announced and allegations must be put to rest.
Almost all Canadians except the aboriginal at one point immigrated to Canada or their ancestors did, therefore, the creed to keep those immigrants, refugees and tourists from coming into Canada is based on purely selfish grounds and hypocrisy. No one is illegal.
