Canadian government set to unveil multi-year immigration plan

The Liberal government will release its 2018 immigration plan today, and it will break from the tradition of a one-year plan in favour of a multi-year forecast.

The targets for economic migrants, refugees and family members will be tabled in the House of Commons this afternoon, and Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen will hold a news conference in Toronto at 3:45 p.m. ET to answer questions on the plan.

Hussen told CBC News the number for 2018 will not dip below what he called the “new normal” of 300,000 newcomers that was set in 2017.

    More, more and more new Liberal voters!

    There is a desperate need to dilute those old stock Canadians and their old fashioned unacceptable viewpoints.

      It is to be hoped they cancel Christian holidays like Christmas to make them feel welcome.

      …to be stuffed into Ridings with currently weak Lieberal support…

    • Canada has clearly caught Europe’s cultural suicide.

      • Reader

        Pierre Trudeau starting cutting back on “European” emigration to Canada back in 1971 and that trend has been expanded by every government and Prime Minister since.

        • Observer

          “European” as in discriminating against “white” immigration.

          • Liberal Progressive

            It’s not considered official discrimination if it’s only against whites.

      And take more of my money to resettle the diverse bunch.

    The new Islamic Caliphate of Canada! Sharia law is on the way. Praise Allah!

    • k2

      Yes, we laugh and mock – myself included – but is anyone going to do anything to prevent this? Will ANYONE fight it?

      • Tooth&Claw

        How?

        • k2

          There are organizations that oppose mass (muslim) immigration: Act for Canada, Pegida Canada, and a few others. They are small but they are there: we can join them, or assist them financially or otherwise. Supporting blogs like BCF and Vlad Tepes helps as well.

          Additionally, as many people as possible need to speak out – to politicians, to the press (when/if possible – I know they often do not allow comments), to colleagues, friends, family: the government WILL make it illegal to do so, eventually. And doing so will possib ly cost some people their jobs, friends, etc. But what will refusing to speak cost us? Our society?

          I know it’s not much of a plan, but speaking enough can force politicians to listen (I still believe) because of selfish motivations – they wish to stay in power – and it can move the Overton Window. The Left has successfully moved it through constant nagging at politicians, boycott campaigns, pressure on those around them, public shaming, etc. We can theoretically, move it back.

          Take notes from Alinsky, and, BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY. Fighting evil requires not being nice.

          This fight is not for sissies. Though sissies should be in it as they will all be sent to Allah as soon as the evil controls.

    Justin must step in to help Sayfullo Saipov, the Manhattan Halloween jihadi.
    Saipov is a big fan of Canada Dry soda, so he’s almost a Canadian.

      I’m holding out for an annexation by the good folk south of the border. Of course, America is engaged in a life and death struggle of its own against cultural Marxism and islam. And if it goes down … then, as Tolkien wrote in the Lord of the Rings, “night will come.”

      • Jabberwokk

        Least then I don’t have to hold back anymore. At least then I’ll know who the enemy is.

    I managed to get a copy of the leaked plan.
    Here it is in a nutshell: https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/56948728ddfe5d7ab44e79f8f7773789770543e51a8241e47702ad198f400a3a.jpg

    Living in an Islamic shit hole?? Come to Canada! EVERYTHING IS FREE HERE!

  • chayisun

    “Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen” ………Is going to hold a news conference to answer, I would assume, preplanned questions from selected members of the following…CBC, Toronto Star and maybe the Whitehorse Star. I hear that CNN is also invited. You know, so they can report back to the American people about how progressive Canada is toward the influx of the be beleaguered Islamic herd who will enrich Canada’s future……

      Remember Somalis go to the front of the line.

    • Alec Leamas

      A muslim immigration minister. I just shake my head.

      • DMB

        Especially a Somali one considering the Somalian diaspora have been a failure every where they have migrated to.

  • BillyHW

    If you believe in women’s suffrage fuck you.

      Billy you forgot to take you medication again this morning.

  • ontario john

    So explain again how they are going to screen three hundred thousand muslim immigrants? Where are the going to live, considering there is housing crisis in Canada. Where are the jobs? And how are we going to feed a massive increase in immigration, when our farm land is rapidly disappearing?

    • Starlord

      Most I see are piss poor. Now way they can afford a house or condo in the gta…

      • k1962

        So they’ll take more of the social housing or we will build it for them. After all, Canadian pockets are like a bottomless pit, so our stupid Liberal politicians think.

  • Starlord

    We are about to go into a 5 year down cycle in the economy. We don’t need 1.5 million people added into Canada during that time.

    • Tooth&Claw

      Perhaps that’s the only thing that will curb this. The economic reality.

    • occupant 9

      … its not “Canadians” our gov’t needs but anti-“Canadians” to teach the former “Canadians” a lesson in tolerance.

      Is there anything left to love like about “Canada”?

    • PaulW

      But think of the cheap labor for big business and Morneau’s buddies. And all the jobs in construction (you can only throw out so many indigenous people so some housing will need to be constructed). Also, the State will have to grow yet again (rather like a tumor) to accommodate all the newcomers’ and their needs (welfare, health, language training). And finally, many more jobs in security and policing to, um, protect against any islamophobic backlash. Happy days are on the way!

    What does it matter? Canada was killed by multicultural loving PET his son is just giving it its burial.

  • Gary

    Who thought it was a good idea to put a devout pro-sharia solmali muslim in the job of the Immigration Minister. Kenya is now building the 400 mile wall to keep out somali’s because of the terrorism attacks.

    • Liberal Progressive

      Those Islamophobes!

    • JoKeR

      Don’t worry Justin and Ahmed Hussen will take them all. Justin will eat anything.
