Trudeau Wants Canadians to Be Patient With Immigrants

We’re not letting Trudeau’s favourite voters block integrate slowly enough:

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau used the example of Italian grandmothers in Montreal to explain Thursday why Canadians shouldn’t be “overly impatient” with the integration of newcomers.

Being fearful of immigrants is “nothing new” in Canada and around the world, he said, adding that Italians and Greeks settling in Montreal in the 1950s faced similar kinds of discrimination as do Muslims and other immigrants today.

“The first generation is always going to have challenges in integrating,” Trudeau said during a panel discussion with London Mayor Sadiq Khan.

“There are districts (in Montreal) where Italian grandmothers still pretty much only speak Italian and don’t speak that much French or English. But their kids and grandkids are seamlessly and completely integrated into Montreal and the only difference is they tend to be trilingual and not just bilingual.”

The prime minister was taking part in a day-long conference hosted by Canada 2020, which describes itself as a progressive think-tank.

All PM Hair-Boy has shown is how little most immigrants integrate and how integration is not expected of them, allowing them to balkanise major urban centres.

Not that he cares as he has shown little empathy or knowledge of how the average Canadian feels. No doubt, he has been warned by his handlers that his immigration policies are not working.



New Brunswick has managed to keep roughly 95 per cent of the Syrian refugees that settled in the province earlier this year but more work needs to be done on making sure the remainder stay in their new communities, according to two officials.

Both Mike Timani, the president of the New Brunswick Multicultural Association, and Alex LeBlanc, the group’s executive director, say it is common that some refugees will decide to leave a province after they have settled.

They were responding to concerns that Syrian refugee families were leaving New Brunswick to settle in larger centres across Canada.

The New Brunswick Multicultural Association says roughly five per cent of Syrian refugee families have left the province.

    Maybe Justin will hire Omar Khadr to teach the newcomers how to be useful by refreshing them in the skills taught in their homelands?

    Let me know when there’s a terrorist plot involving Italian grandmothers.

    So now he has taking to insulting Canadians of Italian descent. In my youth I dated a girl, who came with her family as immigrants from Italy, from what was known as little Italy just north of Montreal. All the children spoke fluent French (much better than the Quebecers) along with some English. Her father only had broken French and the mother only Italian. Through my girl friend I got to know the whole extended family, and in spite of any language difference they were fully integrated. Every one of the younger generation, even who came as small children from Italy, were fully Canadian in that we all shared the same values along with Western culture. What I still remember was all the wonderful food I ate in their homes; food never found in any Italian restaurant since. BTW they didn’t do honour killings, seek to kill “infidels” or want to blow everything up. In fact they were grateful to their host country and proud to be Canadian.

      So true.

  • Bataviawillem

    muslims don’t integrate, in Europe second and third generation muslims are more radical and fanatic then there parents.

    • Alain

      Exactly. Muslims have never integrated in any non Muslim country, and I do mean NEVER.

  • Maggat

    New Brunswick should consider itself luck that they have ‘lost’ five percent of the Syrians. Aim for one hundred percent, that should be the goal.

    • I think the slobs in NB don’t want to lose that potential labour.

      I feel sorry for the New Brunswickers who are looking at their province right now and wondering what they hell happened.

      It’s not hard to guess.

      • Maggat

        My mothers family move up into NB as united empire loyalists at the time of the revolutionary war. A lot of history in NB, but not much else.

  • He knows that the “silly” electorate has had it with migrants who do not integrate.

    A crack is showing.
