MALCOLM: Canadians leery of mass immigration

The Trudeau government introduced its 2018 immigration plan last week, and we were told the Liberals were ushering in “the most ambitious immigration levels in recent history.”

The feds announced Canada would welcome one million newcomers in the next three years – and that’s just counting permanent residents who are on track to become citizens.

The government will also issue hundreds of thousands of visas for guest workers, students, and other visitors to our country.

Mass immigration is needed to “ensure economic growth” and maintain our pensions etc…  or so they say.  That’s a lie. It’s used to provide cheap labour for big business and cheaper votes for politicians.

Why would we need mass immigration in a world where automation is replacing jobs at all levels?

It certainly isn’t for our benefit.

    Well now, if we really want to take on our fair share of the worlds burden, to really help stabilize the population of countries that have the inability to stop reproducing as fast as a flu virus at kindergarten, we need to take in an honestly helpful amount of Refugees/immigrants.

    The way I calculate it, we would need to bring in a million a day for 1000 days, allow them to settle in for 3 months, then embark on another million a day for another 1000 days…then when Canada is a total piece of shit by 2023 we can start asking those countries to help us alleviate our overpopulation problem.
    Why wait for 2030 like the Council of Euorpean Canadians figures, lets just get it over with.

    • Today’s liberals are like a child wanting a new dog.

      Do the libs ever look at the long term consequences of their political fantasies?

        Good question.
        Heres what I know. The son is ramping up his fathers efforts to create a socialist utopia (one where a Putin or Madro or…) are iron fist rulers over a always wanto population.
        I can still remember a reply Papa gave back in the ’70’s (I don’t remember the question, just his response) it was something along the lines of how would these little changes he was making now really do anything.
        He responded like: When a large frieghter is coming into port the Captain starts making small changes far out in to the sea, long before port. Adjust the rudder, slow the engines….
        Justin is steering the ship of communisim into that port right now.

        today’s liberals are like a new highly lethal outbreak of the plague… a guaranteed way to ethnically cleanse the country of its native born population

      Wow, since “diversity is strength” we’ll be a genuine superpower in a handful of years! Watch out world, you’ll soon have to produce your own food because our “breadbaskets” will undergo desertification with the coming Muhammadan practice of denuding grazing the land.

        I can see you fully understand what our previous bigotry based immigration system had been denying our future!
        The benefits of fully integrating a billion new Canadians over the next 3 years is the path forward!
        If done, it would raise Canada to the tops of all lists held important by the United Nations. All of them.
        I would love to see the joy in Justin’s face as he hands out the billionth Canada Goose Down filled jacket to a grateful refugee!!!

    A 2011 IPSOS poll found that the majority of person polled believed there were “too many immigrants” in their country. Surely a survey conducted today would find a larger percentage.

    • Cat-astrophe

      You forgot to add in the new immigrants, subtract the ‘old’ people who have died, include the newley educated 18 year olds, and the number of those who think we are letting in too many will have gotten smaller as a percentage….

    And now the CBC is reporting an immigration scam from Nigeria. Super Socks has sure done wonders for our immigration system.

    This from the same crew that tells us the world is overpopulated.

    Anybody who questions bringing in lots more immigrants and refugees is a racist and the media has already agreed to a blitz of stories in 2018 and 2019 to remind everybody of that.

    Illiberal opinions will not be tolerated!

    • Observer

      The CBC already received more taxpayer dollars from the Liberals.

      I wonder if there will be tax breaks or direct subsidies to the media from the Liberals before the next election, or if it will instead be hidden as a huge increase in government program advertising for them all to buy their support?

    The Trudeau government introduced its 2018 treason plan last week, and we were told the Liberals were ushering in “the most ambitious ethnic cleansing of Canada in recent history.”

      Will the Liberal motto for the 2019 election be “Islam Uber Alles”?

    Couldn’t have said it better myself.
