It’s nice to see our northern neighbors are finally getting tough with their immigration policy:
FOREIGN STRIPPERS MUST SUPPLY NUDE STAGE PHOTOS TO OFFICIALS
By TOM GODFREY, TORONTO SUN
IMMIGRATION OFFICERS are having to pore through naked pictures of hundreds of exotic dancers to keep impostors out of Canada. Foreign strippers planning to table dance in clubs here must now provide photos of themselves with no clothes on to qualify for a visa for Canada, immigration officials say.
‘Stage photos during performances are required,’ said Sergio Mercado, of the Canadian Embassy in Mexico.
In a memo to fellow visa officers around the world, Mercado said if a dancer passes the no-clothes test, they may then require a police certificate or medical examination.
The memo was obtained from access to information documents obtained by the Sun.
The potential dancers have to prove they can dance in the nude, immigration lawyer Mendel Green said yesterday. ‘They can’t be partially nude,’ he said. ‘If they don’t have pictures in the nude, they are not going to wiggle their bottoms in Canada.’
It’s reassuring to know that our northern border is secure, safe from terrorists posing as foreign strippers, thanks to the diligence of Canada’s ever-vigilent Immigration Department.
