One Damn Thing After Another

Knickers in a Knot

It's great to live in a country which has so few problems that the Minister of Immigration, the Deputy Prime Minister and the Opposition can was hours of Parliamentary time discussing the immigration needs of exotic dancers. Apparently Canada has a shortage of pretty young women willing to dance naked in beer halls. So, like dollar store merchandise and computers - we import 'em. On a priority basis.

This worries the Liberal ladies. "Sgro says once the women get to Canada they often run into problems. "They don't have a lot of language skills and they're ripe for exploitation." And Minister Sgro is going to fix this...
Sgro says she is changing the system and she plans to have applications from exotic dancers looked at on a case by case basis.

She says she also wants to make sure there are support systems in place once they arrive.

Now, the exotic dancers I have known have usually had a support system in the form of an out of work metal drummer who scores their dope and drives them to gigs. Often he is so supportive that the girl has no money left at the end of the month. I wonder if there are enough out of work metal drummers to go around...Oh well, we can always import some.
