文章bystander » 週四 9月 21, 2006 1:07 am

以黎戰爭期間的撤僑,加拿大政府花費 85 millions,全民買單!
不料剛剛撤僑完畢,八月中旬以後,7,000 個被撤僑民又跑回黎巴嫩....

這種行為引發雙重國籍的爭論....

Lebanon evacuation cost $85-million: report
Canadian Press

TORONTO — The tab for the large-scale evacuation of Canadians from Lebanon during Hezbollah's conflict with Israel cost taxpayers $85-million, CTV News reports.

The government won't officially divulge what the running total is, nor will it reveal how many people returned to Lebanon after the fighting stopped in mid-August.

Canada hired several ships and chartered aircraft to ferry about 15,000 of the estimated 50,000 Canadians living in Lebanon to safety between July 19 and mid-August.

But sources told CTV that about 7,000 evacuees have returned to Lebanon since hostilities ended last month.

As a rule, Canada asks citizens to reimburse the government for their evacuation from foreign lands, but decided in this case that taxpayers would foot the bill.

Ontario Conservative MP Garth Turner told CTV News that Canadian taxpayers have every right to be “ticked” at what happened.

Turner said citizenship rules need to be revamped.

“Should citizenship expire after a certain period of time if you don't live in Canada anymore? Should it take longer occupancy to get Canadian citizenship?” he asked.

Others suggested dual citizens who are living outside the country should be paying taxes.

“We should do our tax treaties with other countries and see if we can ensure that the tax is collected so that Canadians holding dual citizenship pay tax,” Ontario Liberal MP Yasmin Ratansi told CTV News.

Canadian Taxpayers Federation federal director John Williamson agreed.

“If you don't want to pay taxes to the government of Canada, you give up your citizenship,” he told CTV.

“I think a lot of taxpayers across this country are going to be wondering why so much money was spent on people — (who are) citizens, but who don't reside in Canada.”

Lebanese-Canadians told CTV News that they see it differently.

“Once you are Canadian, it's either you are a Canadian or you are not Canadian. There is no second-class citizenship,” said Khalid Hashem of the Canadian Lebanese Cultural Association.

因此這也是當時的哈柏遲遲未進行撤僑的原因之一
也因此飽受對手攻擊
加國境內同時有黎巴嫩裔與以色列裔的公民
要做到大家滿意是不可能的

不過又舊事重提雙重國籍的爭論
相信應該根以往一樣
雷聲大,雨點小
不值得為小孩教育、養老而移民的省份—悲嘶省

我個人看這件事的重點是...

那些被撤離的黎巴嫩人(持加拿大護照的) 為了政府撤僑緩慢而大聲幹譙政府無能...
結果剛撤離完沒幾天自己又跑回去黎巴嫩....
啊這是把我們幫他們買單的人當成是白痴啊???

這已是舊聞了,除了國籍問題外,我在想他們為什麼要回去黎巴嫩,一個有戰亂,政治不穩定(目前總統還懸缺),ppp 約只達台灣的 1/3。

看了 wikipedia :
礦產貧乏。工業基礎薄弱,以加工業為主。農業並不發達,水果和蔬菜是主要農產品,糧食靠進口。商業和服務業為經濟主導。交通以海、空運為主,人均汽車擁有數量居世界前列
