Canada's open approach to immigration and its willingness to welcome tens of thousands of Syrian refugees is an "enlightened" move that will benefit the country's business sector, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates says.
Yeah, that's what Syrians are famous for: providing explosive boosts to the economy. Why would Gates utter such nonsense?
In 2014, the Canadian government sped up the immigration process by exempting Microsoft from having its foreign employees complete labour market impact assessments.
The federal government has been criticized for the move, as Microsoft faces accusations of using Vancouver as a "staging ground" for non-Americans to qualify more quickly for a transfer to the U.S.
His public praise for Prime Minister Zoolander is just a form of big business chumminess with big government. They'll all look like short-sighted opportunistic fools when a Syrian gang unleashes a Black Swan from hell in Canada.
