While I consider the Asia Bibi story to be a perfect illustration of the total fabrication that is Canada’s immigration and refugee policy, that doesn’t mean there are not others worthy of posting.
SNIDER MOUNTAIN • When Nicolass van Zyl dreamed of making Canada home for his children, he didn’t expect it would be easy, and he knew it wouldn’t be cheap.
But he never once thought it would be impossible – until now.
“It feels like the whole world is falling apart. I just don’t see a light at the end of the tunnel,” the South African immigrant said from his home on Snider Mountain near Sussex.
“We’ve put so much money and energy into this,” Nico said. “ I know at this stage we are tired of this fight.”
As he gathers with his young family in the home they have known for just eight months, packing boxes surround them after they received a letter denying their permanent residency.
“When these people look at an application and make their decision, they need to remember they’re playing with people’s lives,” Nico said, struggling to keep his voice steady.
“We’ve done everything by the book but I’m made to feel like a criminal. It’s not the criminals who pack up and leave their dangerous country.”
An uncertain future
Nico doesn’t know where his future lies, and he’s doing his best to tell the children, 10-year-old Nishan and Zenke, 6, very little for now.
Two years ago the van Zyls were living in South Africa. Wendy was a school teacher, and Nico worked on his father’s dairy farm.
In a country where dozens of murders are committed a day, Nico was consumed with worry. After two neighbouring farmers were killed, and ensuing risk of the South African government expropriating their land, Nico looked on the internet for work in Canada.
He found a farmer in remote Alberta looking for help. The employer was granted a permit to hire an immigrant, and Nico’s work permit was approved, as was Wendy’s.
They sold their home and vehicles in South Africa, kissed their extended family goodbye and moved to Alberta.

But you can see from this, that the Trudeau government rewards the lawless and contemptuous of Canada, its systems, laws and traditions, while quite literally persecuting and punishing those who contribute, obey laws, and do things legally.
I would suggest at this point anyone considering investing in Canadian industry look elsewhere. When a system turns on itself in a kind of national autoimmune disease like this, it can only go one way.
