A lovely young women and her two infant children came to the border from the US to visit family and friends in Canada.  The border guard asked her name and source of income.  When she informed him that she was on Social Assistance the border guard stated that

"People on Welfare have no business traveling" and then proceeded to send her to customs for inspection.

At the inspection station she was harassed and further questioned about her income.  She was forced to provide tax returns, bank statements, her lease, and cash on hand.  They laughed at her and called her a welfare bum.  The the border guard said to her:

"We don't want people on Welfare in Canada-sign this paper and go home"

Her children crying, Embarrassed and tired she signed the papers and returned to her home.

Is this what our soldiers died to protect?
