Many people come to Canada with nothing, either immigrant or refugee. Coning as a refugee is much easier. Everyone knows that. You only need a salable story! Everyone got one! And I don't think the Government of Canada isn't aware of the lies that people weave(!) to make it to the country! They need population and they need cheap labour. They get them both! Here are examples of the claims:
1- I am a homosexual and I like to take it up in the a*s! Homosexuality is not accepted where I lived
2- I'm Christian and I was being discriminated against, because of my religion
3- My life was in danger (very general - try different reasons!). I once met an asshole who was a seaman on a commercial ship and when they anchored at a Canadian port, used this line with a little twist! This a*shole was a grandfather at the time and after he partially settled down, started chasing Native women! I guess ended up with a Chinese!
This short story that I'm going to tell here is about a fool, cheap, lowlife, as*hole who somehow ended up in northern Alberta where people used to (and some still do) make lots of money. He buys a BMW because he had never ridden a donkey(!), let alone driving a car in his country of origin(!) and was excited by the opportunities(!) that the Capitalism has given him! He drives a car for a while and he's happy until the time that the driver door breaks and he gets stuck! At this point he checks with a repair shop, possibly a delaer and he's said that it'd cost a bit more than $3000 to fix the door! As he's a cheap, d*ckhead, loser, he decides not to fix it and just goes in and gets out from the passenger side!
