Immigrant Controversy !!!

It’s election time in Switzerland. When you think of Switzerland, what comes to mind? Mine thinks a people that are very much pacifists. Well, shock ensues.

The SVP (Swiss People’s Party) has again run a controversial campaign calling for the extradition of foreigners who commit serious crimes. It has been criticized by opponents and has roiled the usually smooth waters of Switzerland’s consensus-based politics. There have even been violent protests.

I am at least partially in favour of the concept. Canada is known world wide as a place for bad guys to run to. Once you are here, you’ll rarely be extradited, as you will claim that you former homeland will torture you, or worse. So we put up with you in our prisons, which are a vacation comparatively speaking.

‘Nuff said !!!
