Ford blames Ottawa for illegal border crossers

  Ford blames Ottawa for illegal border crossers TORONTO - The Ontario government says Ottawa is to blame for a housing crisis caused by people crossing the border illegally and should pay all the costs. A spokesman for Premier Doug Ford said Thursday the federal government has encouraged people to cross into Canada illegally and continues to usher people across the U.S.-Quebec border into Ontario. "This has resulted in a housing crisis and threats to the services that Ontario families depend on," Simon Jefferies said in a statement."This mess was 100 per cent the result of the federal government, and the federal government should foot 100 per cent of the bills.

“The mayor is in a very tough … spot trying to get funding,” said the premier, who was sworn in on June 29.

That was a reference to the strain on resources due to asylum seekers entering Canada from the United States, a crisis triggered by President Donald Trump’s policies on migrants.

“The province and the city are spending a fortune and the person that created this mess, we haven’t seen any funding,” said Ford, referring to Trudeau.

“Hopefully it’s coming, we hear it’s coming. We’ll wait and see.”

Those were the rookie premier’s first public comments since his contentious meeting with Trudeau on the issue last Thursday at Queen’s Park.

Tory, for his part, was more measured, noting he was “discussing some of the pressures that we’re facing in our shelter system as a result of the refugee and asylum claimants.”

  Trudeau to meet Toronto mayor John Tory TORONTO - Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will meet with Toronto Mayor John Tory this morning, against the backdrop of the city's escalating gun violence and Ontario's clashes with Ottawa over carbon pricing and refugee resettlement. Trudeau met yesterday with newly elected Ontario Premier Doug Ford, who earlier in the day said the prime minister had put a strain on local and provincial services by encouraging asylum seekers to come to Canada illegally, and that Trudeau's government should foot 100 per cent of the bill for resettling the newcomers.

“I am absolutely confident that we can work together on all of these issues because it’s in our mutual interest to do so,” said the mayor, who met with Trudeau separately on Friday.

As first disclosed by the Star, Ford stunned the federal government last week by signalling the province was stepping back from any role in alleviating the migrant crisis.

That decision sparked a withering salvo from the prime minister.

“It didn’t seem to me that the premier was quite as aware of our international obligations to the UN Convention on Refugees as he might have been,” Trudeau told reporters Thursday.

“So I spent a little time explaining how the asylum-seeking system works and how our system is supposed to operate. I reassured the premier — or I attempted to reassure the premier — that the asylum-seeker stream is separate from the immigration stream,” he said.

“Canada has always had a separate procedure to assess refugees and to determine whether they are, indeed, fleeing violence, persecution and terror, or else they are simply economic migrants, at which point they would get sent home.”

Justin Trudeau Says He Had To Explain Canada’s Refugee System To Doug Ford

Shortly before the meeting, the Ontario government blamed Ottawa for creating a "mess" of a housing crisis due to the influx of asylum seekers crossing into Canada.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said his government will support Toronto as the city deals with an influx of refugees. PCs say policies created ' mess '. Tory has previously said the city has run out of space, resources and people to help settle asylum seekers , and called for other governments to help.

Trudeau met with Doug Ford in Toronto this afternoon, and said afterwards he spent some time explaining to “This mess was 100 per cent the result of the federal government, and the Quebec, which has seen the bulk of asylum seekers arrive this year, has said its costs are closer to 6

Monday’s meeting between the premier and the mayor was also an opportunity for the two men to discuss transit, housing, and Toronto’s recent spate of gun violence.

“We look forward to working hand in hand with the mayor,” said Ford.

The two political leaders are not close and have a complicated history.

Tory defeated Ford in the 2014 Toronto mayoral election and then worked closely with premier Kathleen Wynne’s Liberals.

Last month, Ford toppled Wynne’s party, leading the Progressive Conservatives back to power after almost 15 years in the political wilderness.

In becoming premier, he achieved something that eluded Tory, who led the provincial Conservatives from 2004 until 2009.

Ford’s new government will outline its agenda in a speech from the throne on Thursday, one day after the legislature resumes to elect a new speaker. There will then be a brief summer legislative session.
