  • I feel for these people too - but just how heavy should our tax burden be? I hear they get put up in hotels with each person getting an allowance for food (not their idea but our government). Shouldn't we take care of our old people and natives first?

  • This is not racist. They come here and try to claim refugee status. They are not refugees. They are looking for a better life.
    Once they are on Canadian soil, it takes years to get rid of them.

    • Since when can "economically disadvantaged" people of any nationality claim "refugee" status? I sympathize with Canada, which probably takes in more immigrants than any other, on this particular issue.

    • Indeed. In 2006, there were only 2 refugee claims from the Czech Republic. After the Visa requirements were removed in 2007, there have been 3000 claims from the country. The Czechs are probably annoyed because they can't pass the problem of the Romas to another country.

  • The problem is many of them refuse to wash, they hassle people for money as a first option rather than working. They beat and rob people (even with their kids present). They are a nuisance, and refuse to integrate into society, that is why they are discriminated against socially.

  • The Roma are a race of thieving, lying, scumbags that in their culture being a good thief is an HONOUR.
    They are a nightmare when they get to your community, they steal,pickpocket and burglarise everything they can. We had them in Belfast for a year or two until people had had enough and basically they were threatened to leave or else....they left :)
    Their own ambassador from Romania refused to have them back and the local taxpayers ended up having to fund their "repatriation".
    You do More..

  • How about, fuck you you dirty gypsies. We have laws that our sovereign government passes at the will of our people. If we aren't herding you into camps and gassing you like the Nazi's did, then crying racism is just being a bitch because you haven't been able to make a decent society/home for yourself.


    And people call me a liberal.

  • "Much maligned"?

    There comes a point where so many people 'malign' a group you have to start thinking that there may be something in it.

  • Where the hell do these gypsies come from anyways? Are they all over Europe? I thought they were just in Spain and Italy.

    • They come from Romania, where they were originally slaves brought from Egypt (hence "Gypsies) by the Romans. Prior to being enslaved in Egypt, they were migratory workers from India.

    • Traditionally, a gypsy is not supposed to live in one place, so they move around a lot. In Russia, I've seen them all over the place - from Vladivostok to St.Petersburg.

      As someone already mentioned, Nazis gave them a really hard time during WWII. On par with, if not worse than jews.

    • I was reading on BBC that throughout history romas have been discriminated and badly treated. Russia was only one of the few places where treatment was better.

  • After the fall of the iron curtain around 1990, Germany experienced a high influx of Roma "refugees". In those days Germany would allow anybody to stay temporarily if they claimed asylum. It would then take about 12-18 months for the immigration authorities to prove that 99% of the applicants would have no case for asylum and were sent back to mainly Romania.
    But in the mean time the Roma "refugees" would get free accommodation, food and health care. Latter would be exploited More..

  • I can say for a fact the the Romas had a very good like under communism. I've seen it myself. Better than the average citizens. It seemed that they were more loyal to the communist ideals therefore they got all the goodies.

  • I am from the Czech Republic and I can say I fully understand the Canadians' fears. However, to deal with the situation in this manner was just inappropriate. They need to handle that stuff on a one-by-one basis. Reintroducing visas will NOT cure the problem. The gypsies they want to get rid of "in advance" like this will ALWAYS find a way through. So in the end, it just unnecessarily burdens ordinary travellers, businessmen, etc.
