China’s Millionaire Migration

This is an Aussie doc about Vancouver, as reader MW states it would never be made in Canada.

But crap like this does. Suck it up.

    I shall probably be the odd man out, but honestly what I see more than anything else in this video is fanning the flames of envy and jealousy. Of course it would be great to have that kind of money, but I don’t. Honestly compared to the on-going importation of Muslims, I much prefer to have ultra rich Chinese. I am aware of the complaints about some Chinese businesses not even offering service in English, but the responsibility for that lies with our government, both federal and provincial. When all levels of government insist that new comers don’t need to know or learn English or heaven forbid assimilate, government is responsible not the new comers who take them at their word. No need to speak, read or write English to get a drivers’ license or any other government service, because interpreters will be provided. No doubt there are interpreters who make a good living by giving the correct answers no matter what the applicant said due to the applicant paying extra.

    Still in short compared to mass importation of Muslims, I’ll take the ultra rich Chinese any day.

    • Shebel

      So would I.

    • PaxCan

      How about neither.

      Both groups do not bring prosperity with them but opportunistic, parasitic behaviour.

      The poverty of social and economic contributions of Muslim immigration to Canada is well documented but the Chinese are no better. They’re notorious tax cheats and fraudsters and are not know for being charitable. Indeed, when it comes to charity Muslims have the Chinese beat. When they weren’t contributing to the unemployment of early 20th century Canadians in B.C. they were driving Canadians out of the housing market in the 21st through real estate speculation.

      And like Muslims the Chinese are terrible at assimilation. They cluster and colonize like Muslims, open a business and hire their own, vote for their own, and can’t be bothered to learn English ’cause why should they? At least Muslims make the attempt. For a people who claim a history in Canada of over 100 years isn’t it odd how the Chinatowns haven’t gone the way of the other ethnic enclaves but have grown in number and expanded?

    In Ontario —we are Blessed with the —
    Black and Brown.
    They don’t bring Wealth.

    • PaxCan

      The Chinese bring wealth but they spend it on themselves. Considering the amount of money they bring with them their direct investment into the economy is pathetic telling us we’re better off without them.

      The few sectors of the economy that has benefited from them is real estate and retail particularly luxury goods, not exactly the things that drive a robust economy.

  • Alain

    One last thing concerning the ultra rich Chinese immigrants is that they are NOT sucking our social programs dry like all these 3rd world types.

    • PaxCan

      I beg to differ.

      That Chinese living in luxury million dollar homes are reporting below poverty incomes and claiming benefits to supplement that reported poverty tells me that they are sucking our social programs dry like all these 3rd world types.

      There was a report that refugees were reporting higher earnings than the millionaire investor.

      The Chinese are shameless opportunists and you have to ask why such a tax averse people would want to live in a high tax country like Canada that is, unless, they figured out to game they system to their monetary benefit at our expense.

  • Shebel

    It is a real shame—
    WHITE Canada is done.

    • Watchman

      At least the Chinese have demonstrated an 150 year history of assimilating no with the existing Canadian culture and laws, unlike many other migrants Turdeau is attempting to bring into Canada.

      • PaxCan

        You’re joking right?

  • Shebel

    My GAWD—-I really do HATE our Politicians.
    What gives you the Right to Destroy our Culture ?

    NATIVES— You better grab what you can—

  • Watchman

    Curious as to why an Australian reporter team makes such a video, it appears that Australia has a similar Money-for-Citizenship scheme:

    As Dateline is a current events show featuring non-Australian stories and paid for by a taxpayer funded ethnic TV station, I’m unsure if this is meant to show the effects of these citizenship schemes has for Australia as it has for Canada, or whether the producers are just jealous of the Chinese millionaires choosing Canada.

    • Shebel

      Probably the Latter.

    • Brett_McS

      The same thing is happening in Australia. The Gold Coast in Queensland used to be owned mostly by the Japanese. The Japanese recession put paid to that. Now the Chinese are moving in.

      • xavier

        Yup and Syndey roo awhile back. But the Chinese are exporting their economic problems and their lack of confidence for their country’s future

        • Watchman

          These are the smart Chinese. The Chinese economy is in real trouble, and many of them know it’s not ‘if’ but ‘when’ the Chinese economy has to deal with its inherent problems that the Chinese government is hiding.

          • xavier

            Agreed but only if the party let’s them. the anticorruption drive is both to keep the money from flowing out as well as a Jonestown moment. This could explain Xi desire to kick out Mao from the pantheon and replace him as the supreme master brianic of the party.

  • Shebel

    At least Oriental females are Pretty.
    Not at all like these Welfare Pigs from Africa and the Mid East.

  • PaxCan

    The Chinese have a word to describe these people showcased in the video: fuerdai. It’s a pejorative used to describe the children of China’s new wealth who seem to only exist to engage in invidious consumption by spending their parents money and shaming the Chinese people with their materialistic behaviour.

    New wealth, I should add, that was created mostly by illicit means. I read a New Yorker article about these parasites and when prompted by the reporter to describe how their parents, meaning the father mostly, made and maintain their fortune they were vague about it and reluctant to go into detail.

    These people are scoundrels and we’re better off without them. I often quip that Canada shouldn’t have gotten rid of the Chinese head tax and needs another one and I mean it. I fail to seem how this mass invasion of the Chinese into Canada has been of any significant benefit to us as a people and nation.

  • What has happened to the notion that nations have not only the right but also the necessity to control immigration? You don’t want ’em, tax the hell out of ’em.
