Canada Without Immigration?

If Canadians cannot and will not produce and educate its own work-force, why should the country be kept alive? :

A new study has predicted what Canada’s economy would look like without immigration, and it’s not pretty.

Although unlikely to happen, the Conference Board of Canada imagined what would happen by 2040 if the country’s borders were completely shut.

“If it stopped immigration, Canada would experience a shrinking labour force, weak economic growth, and greater challenges funding social services such as health care,” senior research associate Kareem El-Assal said in a release.
