Is the destination address the House of Parliment?

The debauchery and sin that go on in the Houses of Parliament under Liberal rule would rival any whorehouse or strip joint!

Except that the story has absolutely nothing to do with Canada.

You didn't read it closely enough.

Don Harron,aka Charlie Farquharson, could always get laughter from his audience by referring to the House of Commons as the Common House.

How exactly does an ad placed in a New York paper looking for strippers to come to Canada (placed no doubt by Canadians)have to do with Canada?
Oh I don't know, that is a hard one to decipher.

"That doesn't matter, Chris, because you see, the liberals are evil and Kate hates Canada."
Huh!..... someone is being seletive about what they read in the news.... where have you been the last couple of months....oh, let me guess.... a roving moonbat.

I guess people don't read past the first three paragraphs anymore... the original ad (the one here is my own photoshopped version) was in a local Mexican paper, translated from Spanish.

By the way, Robert - have you ever done a word count on your own site and various comments elsewhere to tally up how often you use the word "hate"?
Methinks a mirror might be in order.

"...the original ad (the one here is my own photoshopped version) was in a local Mexican paper, translated from Spanish."
I'm aware of that, Kate, but that's just what some lowlife decided to put in a classified ad. According to the article, these women are/were being trafficked to Tijuana, then to New York —there is absolutely no Canadian connection to the operation or to these women. Your title is incredibly misleading.

Many have been wringing their hands as to why the Canadian voter cares little in regard to Adscam/Liberal corruption & etc. Not much to add except call it apathy.
Question: How to pierce the turtle shell of the Canadian voter's apathy? How to bring their attention to the pile of corruption? How move them to throw the Lieberals out?
How to tie the package together into a marketable product?
It is in front of us as we stare at our terminals.
Remember Gerda Munsinger & Pierre Sevigny? Bedtime tory & etc.?
Spell it out... s-e-x: imagine the attraction/then, the revulsion of it all.
S-e-x sells the Lieberals out... sell the Liberals out of government...
More, please, & faster...

From the link provided:
# A round-trip plane ticket.
# A work visa to Canada.
# Transportation from the hotel to the clubs.
Pay attention, there'll be a test later....

Chris, in the light of Judy Sgro, Romanian strippers and the immigration departments likely infiltration by organized crime, I would accept such an ad at face value. You aren't suggesting that those strippers were being imported for their dancing prowess, do you?
Posted by: Kate | 2005-04-03 2:58:31 PM
Are you people putting me on? The *only* mention of Canada in that article is in the classified ad. These women *are not being sent to Canada*. This sentence is from the original article (my emphasis): "Mexican sex traffickers *deceive* countless young women into becoming prostitutes by placing *bogus* ads in local papers."
Kate, in light of the fact that the article itself says the ad wasn't real, why on earth would you take it at face value? Oh, right, because of Judy Sgro and Romanian strippers and a potentially corrupt Canadian immigration department, which have sweet frig all to do with this story. This is nuts — you should clarify your post.

No they are not, they are waiting for these csses to wind through the criminal courts. We shall see what verdicts are rendered and what sentences are provided if any.
Canadians are law abiding, an that has served us well in the past as it will during these cases. We are NOT going to pass judgement until we have all the facts, no matter how the "neocons" squirm, lie, cheat and steal, or pout.
Now Scottie, go stand in the corner and don't forget your pointy hat.

"Sgro sues pizza store owner again".
"Canadians are law abiding..."
Says who? The best answer gets a free pizza.. let's sgro.

Chris - I shouldn't have to clarify my post. The intent should be self evident. We have an immigration department that was handing out visas willy nilly to people who traffic in the sex trade... er... exotic dancer industry.
Do you think that would have been limited to Eastern Europe? Canada is one of the easiest places in which to traffic sex workers - especially in light of our consent laws.
Why would you assume the "bogus" part of an ad would be in it's promise of a Canadian visa? The bogus portion is the invitation to a job, that is in effect - sex slavery. The visa is bona fide. It's what happens after they sign up that is the sham.
Posted by: Kate | 2005-04-03 3:26:47 PM
maz2: you are hereby convicted of one count of criminal punning.
Kate: saddest commentary: they send their strippers here, while we send our MPs there to do some research. Who has sinned more?
RM: there is no way Kate could detest Canada more than I. I have earned that right based on living in your fascist state. Free Alberta now!
Joe Green: you're out of the military. You can start questioning your masters now.

Today being Sunday I headed on down to the Church of Objectivism in a hurry of course what with the 1,959 librarians and 200,000 columnists lining up I had to ensure I got a front row pew.
The High Priestess A.Rand (when she stopped squirming) delivered a lovely sermon about admiring Nate Brandon's values and Mammon made an appearance as well - all in all - a very inspiring service, thought I'd seen you in the back pew J.G., the shiny hat gave you away.

Kate, I didn't assume any "part of the ad" was bogus; I assumed the whole ad was bogus. Why? Because that's what the article said.
Excluding the bogus ad, there isn't a solitary shred of evidence in that article that Mexican women are being trafficked to Canada. Not one. Not only that, the entire article shows how such bogus ads are used to lure Mexican women to places *other than Canada*!

"Suspected cases of passport fraud" to be highlighted Tuesday in A-G's report.
A passport is: an all-undressed pizza coupon; Party card for the libranos; an all-expense paid trip to Piazza Canada, Italia; pass go & get out of jail; an autumn cruise up/down the Saguenay with CSL; all of the above.
