We’re ‘really mad’ at Canada over visa restrictions: Mexico
The Canadian Press ^ | September 15, 2013 | MIKE BLANCHFIELD

Posted on 09/15/2013 5:42:56 PM PDT by rickmichaels

The Mexican ambassador to Canada says his country is “really mad” at the Harper government for the continued imposition of a visa on its travellers here.

Ambassador Francisco Suarez told The Canadian Press in an exclusive interview that Mexico is so upset that if the issue isn’t resolved by next year, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto might have to postpone a planned visit to Canada.

That would cast a shadow over the festivities that Mexico and Canada are planning for 2014 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the North American Free Trade Agreement and the 70th anniversary of bilateral relations.

“We’re now saying it’s a major irritant,” said Suarez, who assumed his new post in Ottawa three months ago.

“We’re now really mad. Canada has the most stringent visa system for Mexicans of any country in the world.”

Enrique Pena Nieto might have to postpone a visit! That would be terrible! How could Canada survive such a blow?

Gee, that would be a shame to miss out on a visit from a Mexican.

We’re overrun with enough people who don’t share our way of life now - we don’t need any more.

Not getting to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of NAFTA is like not getting to celebrate the Anniversary of the Soviet Union (both are about similar)

Mexico just upset that Canada isn’t coddling their Illegal Aliens. And, El Tri stinks, too

With all the illegals we’ve taken on, isn’t Mexico almost completely de-populated by now?

Canada also has this archaic xenophobic law that anytime they want to import a foreign worker, they must first demonstrate a bonafide effort to have tried to hire a Canadian.

It took my brother four months to get a visa there for that reason.

Gee, imagine a country where citizenship actually means something other than "get to the back of the line!"

GOOD! BE Mad, Be G.D. Mad about it. Be mad enough to fire your policemen and mayors bought and paid for by the drug cartels. Learn from the Newly capitalist Chinese, and get mad enough to grow your own Mexican economy, make live more livable for your own citizens.

“Ambassador Francisco Suarez told The Canadian Press in an exclusive interview that Mexico is so upset that if the issue isn’t resolved by next year, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto might have to postpone a planned visit to Canada. “

Perhaps Mexico should consider fixing it’s narco-terrorist sh**hole first before it gets angry at anyone else.

Screw the canuks. They never miss a chance to tell us how ‘’racist’’ our immigration laws are.

As I’ve said here time and again if the Mexican people would put just half the energy into fixing their country that they do into destroying ours than maybe someday Mexico will be a place Mexicans don’t half to run away from.

You want to really annoy a Mexican?

Just say to him “Dos a Cero”.

He’ll know what you mean.

Columbia did and their problem was far worse at the time. But it involved electing conservative leadership and cooperating with an American administration which couldn't be bought off by the drug cartels.

Alas, neither scenario looks likely.
