More praise for one of my favorite Tory Cabinet ministers, Jason Kenney. Though I would like him to tighten immigration a lot more. We need to dramatically increase security checks on immigrants and stop immigration from countries with large numbers of jihadis, until we can undertake the needed security checks. We also have to further tighten up our refugee system and our foreign worker program.

An immigration system that takes eight years just to open up an applicant’s file is dangerously close to collapse. Canada has become a victim of its own popularity -- as well as its own inefficiencies. To eliminate the backlog of one million applications, Mr. Kenney has proposed “transformational change” that could include simply eliminating all the old files, and starting anew.
