To Harper - They Are ALL 'Bad Czechs'

"European Union diplomats and officials have signalled that Canadians could face visa restrictions from member countries, if Ottawa does not lift newly announced visa requirements for Czech nationals. EU spokesperson Michele Cercone said the European Commission "regrets" Ottawa's decision and would be speaking with Canadian officials in short order, though no immediate action was planned."
CTV News

"Canada's decision to impose visa requirements on Mexican and Czech citizens as a way of curbing dubious refugee claimants was roundly criticized Monday by their governments and business and civil rights groups as unnecessary, shameful and an unwelcome irritant. [...] The Czech government made the strongest objections, calling the Canadian government's action one-sided and inadequate as well as “unfriendly in the context of long-term good relations between…two democratic countries.” On Tuesday, it said it will recall its ambassador from Canada and impose visa requirements on Canadian diplomats and Canadians visiting the Czech Republic on business."
The Globe & Mail

How many canadian businessmen go to Mexico or the Czeck rRepublic and claim refugee status?
Just wandered, apples to apples etc..

Not sure how that is at all relevant to what is happening here. Czech and Mexican retaliation for Jason Kenney's screw up means that business travelers from Canada can't just jump on a plane and fly direct to Mexico or Czech Republic. They would have to do some advance planning an application for visa to travel.
This is another case of Conservative government incompetence. They just do things without fully thinking out the consequences.
