Australia seeks to keep Canadians out

This Australian election has been awash in rhetoric about “turning back the boats.” Sadly, neither party is willing to honour its obligations under international asylum law and continue to use the refugee issue here as a political football (hockey puck to my Canuck brethren).

The Age’s Katz appeals to Oz’s future prime minister that we should just keep out the worst of the worst – the Canadians.

… something must be done to curb the influx of Canadastanis flowing across our borders like thick insidious maple syrup smothering a helpless little butterball atop a compassionate pancake short-stack.
