“Canada has sizeable diaspora populations from Somalia, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Sudan and Nigeria, all countries where a high percentage of the female population is estimated to have experienced FGM.”
It’s not just that there are many people in Canada from countries where FGM is common. There is also the Canadian welcome to all “cultures” with no consideration as to whether their practices are consistent with Western principles that makes young girls and women vulnerable to FGM. These women should be protected in Western countries. Instead, the Toronto Sun reported:
Following Trump’s ham-fisted executive order on immigration security, Trudeau took to social media to once again contrast himself from Trump on refugees. “To those fleeing persecution, terror and war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith,” said Trudeau on Twitter. “Diversity is our strength. Welcome to Canada.”
What Trudeau did not say was that those suffering abroad are welcome to seek refuge in Canada as long as they leave their harmful cultural practices at the door. But this is not the case, as it is also not the case throughout most of Europe, which is now plagued with chaos, rape, lawlessness and massive debt as a result of suicidal refugee policies. Now, migrants are also traveling to “‘Soft Touch’ Scotland for FGM,” where “one midwife sees 150 cases a year.”
Fake feminists such as Linda Sarsour and her leftist tribeswomen add another problematic dimension with their lies about caring for women. They have turned their backs on the true suffering of women and girls under Islamic law.
“Female genital mutilation practitioners are travelling to Canada, border officers warned”, by Stewart Bell, Global News, July 17, 2017:
Practitioners of female genital mutilation are believed to be entering Canada to perform the illegal procedure on girls, according to intelligence reports distributed to frontline border officers.
The reports obtained by Global News show the Canada Border Services Agency has been on the alert for the arrival of travelling “PFGMs,” or practitioners of female genital mutilation, for more than a year.
Photos of the cutting tools, belts and “special herbs” practitioners might be carrying in their baggage when they arrive in the country have been circulated to border officers.
Once in Canada, the practitioners are typically called into homes to perform the procedures, the CBSA Intelligence Operations and Analysis Division wrote in a report titled, “Female Genital Mutilation Practitioners Entering Canada.”
A second Intelligence Advisory told officers to “be aware of girls and women travelling to or returning from regions where they may be subjected to the practice.” An accompanying map highlighted countries in Africa and the Middle East.
While it has long been suspected that Canadian girls were being taken abroad to undergo female genital mutilations, the reports show that federal officials believe the practice is now occurring in Canada….
The practice has been illegal in Canada since 1997. There has never been a successful prosecution in this country but in the U.S., six people have been arrested since April for allegedly performing genital mutilations at a Detroit clinic.
In Australia last year, a former midwife, Kubra Magennis, 72, was convicted of performing genital mutilations on two girls, ages 6 and 11. Their mother was also found guilty as well as a religious cleric.
“Practitioners of Female Genital Mutilation are almost certainly entering Canada to engage in Female Genital Mutilation on both girls and women of primarily African and South-East Asian descent,” the CBSA wrote in one of the reports.
Disclosed under the Access to Information Act, the reports show that Canadian border officials have been told to treat those “committing, aiding and abetting” female genital mutilations as possible criminals. The reports were labelled as a “human trafficking” priority.
“PFGMs enter Canada with the purpose of committing a crime (aggravated assault) but may not have the awareness or belief that they are doing so. Those aiding the PFGM may also be charged in accordance with the Criminal Code,” said one of the reports.
Tens of thousands of girls and women in U.S., United Kingdom and Australia have undergone the procedure or are at risk, the reports said. Officials don’t yet know how widespread the problem is in Canada but one intelligence report said identifying practitioners at points of entry was “an important first step.”
“According to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and Canadian health care providers, it is almost certain that FGM is also happening in Canada, despite the legislation against the practice in 1997,” it said.
“Canada has sizeable diaspora populations from Somalia, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Sudan and Nigeria, all countries where a high percentage of the female population is estimated to have experienced FGM.”…
Preventing female genital mutilations is difficult because the parents “may believe it is a good thing” for daughters and it is “not culturally acceptable” for girls to talk openly about it, another CBSA report said……
