Canada is changing its legislation in order to alleviate the visa regime and abolish visas for citizens of all EU countries, according to Foreign Minister John Baird.

Baird met Friday with his Bulgarian counterpart Daniel Mitov during the Ministerial Council of the Organization of Security and Cooperation in Europe in Basel, according to the press office of Bulgaria’s Foreign Ministry.

During the working meeting, Mitov brought up the question of the abolition of visas for Bulgarian citizens.

Mitov and Baird expressed their wish to enhance bilateral political dialogue and cooperation both within the frames of multilateral forums and strategic partnership between the EU and Canada.

The two foreign ministers agreed that there was great potential in the trade and economic relations between Bulgaria and Canada and indicated their willingness to organize a joint business forum.

The only specimens that should be deported to their "part of the world" are most German & Nordic Barbarians who have destroyed the real European Civilization from Bulgaria & Romania(10,000 years with The Thracians) Greece( 3,000 years who learned everything from The Thracians) Rome( 2,000 years who learned fro both Thracians & Greeks) and The Barbarians from the north who were living in caverns during those times. Only for the past 1000 years you have copied our civilization, alphabet, science, calendars, etc. so go Read some history books you German-Canadian idiot.

Yo what's up bros
I'm from Miami visiting some BG bros from TO.

Why any of you in BG would want to go to Canada?
All those snow birds want to move to Florida.
Our poor north cousins suffer from the triple W syndrome.
The first W is for the weather. It's cold, icy, snow, dark for 6 months every year. Tundra climate, awful like north pole or Siberia. The highest suicide rate per capita in the world is in Quebec.
Next W is for women, all of them fat, manly and promiscuous
The last W is for work, NO work in Canada. The world capital of lonely unemployed people

Don't go to Canada bros, it's COLD
Come to Miami I'm going back home

All of immigrants had a long period to wait for the immigration procedures and visa. they had paid a lot of money. Is not correct now to let all the gipsy from EU to cames in Canada. They are already banned from EU countries. Another thing is that in EU is a big story between gipsy and Bulgarian or gipsy and Romanian. The point is, you can`t import in Canada non skilled worker. Canada must continue to import skilled workers! Not the s**t of other society.
so, stop the visa! Let the immigration program!

Great news for Novinite readers! Despite what this slug Zheliazkhov claims, and following the petition that many of you have signed, the news around Hamilton is that Mayor Fred Eisenberger has finally requested the relevant authorities deport this parasite Zheliazkhov from our fine city to somewhere more appropriate like Pyongyang. Once a date has been set, I will keep you all informed and have assurances from city hall that a party will be held in celebration. Watch this space!

Hi Peter,
I understand that citizen is Bulgarian and you're opposing on lifting the visa for Bulgarians and Romanians until that person is deported to his homeland. My question is: why are you opposing the visa lifting for Romanians?

Peter Schmidt the Canadian from Halifax - 6 Dec 2014 // 23:29:10

To Whom it May Concern:

As a hard working Canadian taxpayer I will oppose any change in visa rules for Bulgarian nationals until George Zheliazkov from Hamilton, Ontario is deported from Canada. That individual was accepted as a refugee in Canada in June of 1992 and has lived off government handouts since then. The hard working Canadian taxpayer has been working hard to pay Zheliazkov's food, clothing and government housing. Is this fair? 22 years in welfare and absolute abuse.

Zheliazkov needs to be deported back to his homeland so that he can cheat the welfare system there. He was allowed in Canada as a refugee and spends his days on government provided computers verbally abusing Canada and praising the Russian enemy. Russia is sending nuclear bombers to Canadian airspace and that Balkan creature continues his praise towards the enemy while abusing Canada and the West every chance he gets.

Deport that eastern specimen to his part of the world now and until that happens I will petition the Canadian parliament to maintain current visa policy towards Bulgarian and Romanian nationals.
