An Immodest Proposal for Helping Displaced Economic Migrants of the World by Relocating them All to Canada

The widely ridiculed Mother Canada statue planned for Nova Scotia’s Cape Breton is going to be erected for the fallen Canadians of overseas conflicts. But it could very well be repurposed as our version of the Statue of Liberty; a welcoming beacon for the millions of displaced people scattered across the world. Mother Canada’s outstretched arms—facing the Atlantic—can embrace the war-ravaged and poor-stricken as they enter our land of peace. With a population of only 35 million and a land area of almost 10 million square kilometres, Canada has the space for the UN’s estimated 60 million forcibly displaced.

    We would need a bigger shower industry.

    Trudeau would love to bring in 60 million so he can have them vote liberal.

    • You bet he would.

      Someone has to pay for his deficits. We won’t be around when payment is due.

      • DD_Austin

        We’ll end up paying the deficits, Immigrants are a net loss

          Muslim immigrants are like an STD… they are hard to get rid of, easy to catch if your not careful and while it may seem pleasurable at first the burning goes on and on.

    Lots acreage in the north one hears, although young Muslim men prefer happening towns with lots of action rather than wide open spaces.

    When the burning of fossil fuels are shut down Canada will not be very hospitable.

    Shouldn’t it be in Dundee, Quebec?

    Six Iraqis have been arrested for illegally crossing the border from the United States into Quebec’s Montérégie region, the RCMP has confirmed. The six were spotted by a farmer in the town of Dundee, Que., near the U.S. border on Wednesday.

    I can suggest two places in the US to relocate them: Attu and Kiska.

    Baffin Island needs at least half a million by next September. too bad the airfields will be closed after 1 Oct.

    • Blacksmith

      Air drop?

    • pike bishop

      I think anyone who has been to the Canadian high arctic has a good idea about how much of this large nation is not habitable.
      For me it was Pan Arctic Oil, Bent Horn, M12, Cameron Island 1977.
      Even Eskimos did not live there.

      • Maggat

        Pan Arctic, Christ that brings back memories. Yuck.

          Gustavson Drilling was a pretty good outfit to work for.

            I was with Okanagan doing flying support.

            It seems like a long way to go to get oil now that oil is so abundant.
            I always smile when I think about those plastic palm trees outside the doors of the camp at Rae Point.

          • Maggat

            One day quite a bit north of Rae Pt I remember looking south at the very dim glow in the sky thinking Christ the whole world could be gone in a nuclear holocaust and we’d never know.
            I said the hell with it and crawled back into my hot sheet bed.

          • pike bishop

            It is not a place that is easily forgotten. We never had hot bunks but there was six men in a room about the size of a small camper trailer.
            We could smoke cigarettes anywhere we wanted to, even in bed.
            The food was good, the pay was good. In those days the anti oil wackos had no pull at all. Industrial growth was the word of the day, as you well know. A lot has changed in 40 years. If you google Gustavson Rig 12 there is a site with lots of old pictures from the Island Drilling and production.

            Hi again. We were up there supporting the ice runway building. We were staged on KCI. I googled Gustavson Rig 12 and found quite a bit of interesting information. I nice shot of C-FOKP which did the heavy lifting of the equipment for the runway building, If that’s not me in the pic then I was bunked out. A lot of time and treasure was spent up there, but my personal opinion was that it was all worth it and then some. jcmatt@uniserve.com

          • pike bishop

            Great to hear back from you. I too enjoyed those old photos. The Bent Horn M12 well, I believe, produced the only Canadian high arctic oil ever to make it to market. It was yellow in color, very light and highly flammable. I’m pretty proud of being there. It’s sure not every well I ever worked on that has that high of a profile.
            Man do the years ever go by.

          • Maggat

            Hi again, nice to hear from you. All the great and cold times up there! Speaking of oil, we flew four drums of oil from one of the rigs out of Tuk. I think it was the Malikpac. The oil was passed around in bottles, damn I never hung onto one of them, it was as you said about the Brent Horne M12 oil, a light yellow only with a bit of an orange cast. Very light viscosity. I seem to remember BeauDrill had a tanker up there that was being filled to move some product south. I left that neck of the woods for south east Asia about that time. Much better working conditions. Drop a line.

          • pike bishop

            What a small world. When I went north I had just come from Jakarta.
            Ah…the cold…I may have been skirting that subject.
            Let’s put it this way, men die.

          • Maggat

            Ya, we had xportation a bit better an old PWA 727.
            Anyway, I’m glad that I was able to get up there and can say that I was a small part of Canada’s Arctic Oil Exploration.
            Spent a bit of time supporting seismic up at the north end of Sumatra, Acha Province, lovely area but scary people.
            Offshore oil, I think I hit the best period in it to be had, late 70s 80s 90s and 00s. Good times, anyway take care, drop a line if you care to.

          • pike bishop

            We had a part in building Canada and there is no doubt about that.
            I’ll put that type of work up against anyone anytime.

          • Maggat

            Yes you are right, and the pay wasn’t half bad.

  • Maggat

    PISS-OFF.
