China is Superior to Race-Mixed Brazil but Inferior to White Brazil

China is Superior to Race-Mixed Brazil but Inferior to White Brazil

by Ricardo Duchesne

In our upside down times Western nations exhibit their moral arrogance in self-effacing biases against their culture and histories, attributing their success to external factors such as the “enriching” contributions of immigrants, while blaming their failures on internal factors such as their past white only immigration policies.  Communist China does not care a whit about such moral grandstanding, recently declaring that its culture and its people are superior to Brazil’s, and to all the other peoples of the world.

According to Chinese State media journalist, Ding Gang, Brazilians are lazy slackers incapable of  modernizing their country properly, whereas Chinese people are more intelligent, harder working, diligent, frugal, family oriented, and plainly superior in achieving greater things than other races. “It may sound racist,” writes Gang, “to differentiate development based on culture. But after living in Brazil for a while, you will find out the answer.”

Brazilians are not willing to be as diligent and hard working as the Chinese. Neither do they value savings for the next generation, like the Chinese do. Yet they demand the same welfare and benefits as those in developed countries…Chinese people have huge potential for pursuing family and personal happiness…In terms of political culture, Chinese civilization may not enjoy the longest history of all ancient civilizations, but it has survived vicissitudes for thousands of years and still prospers—the epitome of Chinese people’s vitality and creation—as well as a reflection of the political culture in Chinese civilization.

Breitbart cites other articles by Chinese state media claiming that the downfall of the Soviet Union was due to its lack of a traditional culture as good as China’s, which successfully merged communism with its own magnificent Confucian ethics. The Chinese State media also says that Chinese are superior to the drug addicted, criminally oriented, and lazier Americans. No other people have the same capacity for hard work as the Chinese.

What drives the Chinese to work so hard? It is not only the pursuit of better pay, domestic economy but also their mentality and the workplace culture…Confucianism is still relevant. Even in Asia, Chinese are regarded more hardworking than people of other countries.

It is hard to question Chinese superiority compared to the enfeebled white males who love diversity. But leaving aside this emerging reality, let’s compare China to those regions of Brazil in which whites remain a healthy majority. The Brazilian states with the highest percentages of whites are the three located in the South of the country: Santa Catarina (84% White), Rio Grande do Sul (82.3%), Paraná (70%), and São Paulo (60,6%).

Is it a coincidence that the whitest states of Brazil exhibit the highest economic well-being? These states have the highest level of per capita income, the lowest rates of illiteracy, the highest average life expectancy, the lowest homicide rate and the lowest levels of corruption. The cities of these states enjoy a reputation of being “clean, safe and organized”.

If we add to the whitest states those regions in the Southeast with the highest absolute numbers of whites, namely, São PauloMinas Gerais, and Rio de Janeiro, we are basically talking about the heart of Brazil’s development, prosperity, and modernization.

Many Germans in Rio Grande do Sul

We should keep in mind that the proportion of whites in all these states has been declining over the years. These states were built from the ground up by whites. For example, Rio Grande do Sul was 88.7% white in 1940, now it is 82.3%. São Paulo’s white proportion has declined (in the same years) from 84.9% to 60.6%. Minas Gerais was 64.2% in 1940, now it is 47.2%.

Because they have been the best areas in Brazil, non-white migrants have been flooding in search of the jobs, welfare, and modern living gracefully offered by the founding white population. I inferred this without any evidence. My first search brought a study supporting this inference. According to The Encyclopedia of Global Human Migration:

Internal migration flows were heaviest in movements from the northeastern to the southeastern states. The usual explanation for this movement references poverty and the lack of job opportunities in the northeast combined with the concentration of industries in the southeast, mainly in the state of São Paulo.

How does China compared to Brazil’s whiter areas? The Gross Domestic Product per capita in China was recorded at 7329.09 US dollars in 2017. The GDP per capita of Brazil was estimated to be 11200.00 USD. The Southeast states of Brazil have higher per capita incomes. While we cannot underestimate China’s growing economic power and modernization, a proper comparison between these two nations in terms of their overall economic well being, not just GDP, shows a Brazil with a higher HDI ranking. The whitest regions of Brazil decisively outperform China. The homicide rate by race and by state clearly show that Brazilian whites are as peaceful as the Swiss.

Using the logic and arguments of China’s State media, we have to conclude that the White people of Brazil are superior to the inferior Han people of China. By the same token, however, we must recognize that White nations undergoing racial diversification will be increasingly divided into under-developing race mixed areas and still developing White areas. Claims by the Chinese about their superiority vis-à-vis Western nations undergoing diversification will inevitably sound truer and truer if we don’t stop our traitorous globalist elites.

Fentanyl kings in Canada allegedly linked to powerful Chinese gang, the Big Circle Boys

Fentanyl kings in Canada allegedly linked to powerful Chinese gang, the Big Circle Boys

In October 2015, RCMP officers wearing tactical gear burst into luxury homes, an underground bank and two illegal casinos in Richmond, B.C.

At a hidden casino on Richmond’s No. 4 Road, they found 27 surveillance cameras. The place was abandoned but police saw something that concerned them.

On a wall calendar, a day had been circled. It was the execution date for the RCMP’s search warrant.

WATCH: The suspected kingpins of fentanyl in Canada

Before the end of October, a Chinese woman from Vaughan, Ont. bought a 13,000-square-foot mansion on a plot of Richmond farmland.

But she only owned the $4.9-million home on paper, according to allegations in a civil forfeiture case.

A new illegal casino was up and running within weeks, the allegations state. Looming behind the purchase of 8880 Sidaway Rd. — a palatial red and grey building guarded by black iron gates and ornamental golden lions — was an alleged network of narcos that police would eventually link to an 85-ton shipment of precursors for drugs including fentanyl.

Fentanyl killed so many Canadians last year that it caused the average life expectancy in B.C. to drop for the first time in decades. But for crime kingpins, it has become a source of such astonishing wealth that it has disrupted the Vancouver-area real estate market.

A Global News investigation has found that in British Columbia, where the crisis has hit hardest, investigators believe the fentanyl trade revolves around the Big Circle Boys, a powerful crime network directed from the Chinese mainland.

What makes them so robust, according to sources, is their ability to corrupt Chinese officials, which allows them to control chemical factories in southern China and get fentanyl through Chinese customs and to the West.

“There are so many players we identified in B.C. But this is all directed from inside China,” an international policing expert said. “At the very top they are insulated. It’s government officials.”

So who are the Big Circle Boys?

READ MORE: Who are the Big Circle Boys?

Drug money loop

It all began as a drug-trafficking investigation.

In early 2015, police secretly tracked a network of suspected loan sharks and Chinese high-rollers operating out of Richmond’s River Rock Casino, and discovered they had an international money-laundering investigation on their hands.

The primary target of the RCMP’s October 2015 raids, B.C. Lottery Corp. investigative documents allege, was 51-year-old Paul King Jin. Jin and several associates were connected to probable offences involving narcotics importation and trafficking, as well as operating illegal casinos and conspiring to launder money, according to allegations in B.C. Supreme Court filings.

WATCH: How organized crime groups launder suspected drug money in B.C. real estate

Jin has not responded to questions from Global News about the allegations. Several of Jin’s associates have been charged in the case, but it is not known whether Jin has been charged in ongoing investigations.

The B.C. Lottery Corp. first noticed Jin in 2012, documents show. He was banned for making 50 suspicious cash transactions in River Rock Casino from 2012 to 2014. According to RCMP investigators, police allege Jin recruited Chinese VIPs in Macau, and his gang met the VIPs in Richmond parking lots to give them hockey bags stuffed with cash.

Jin, who also made massive real estate loans to these same gamblers, acknowledged that once, in a Richmond coffee shop, he gave a $2.68-million cash loan to a Chinese developer. But the developer said the loan involved an illegal casino transaction, according to allegations in legal filings. Jin’s filings claim some of these cash loans were for Vancouver-area home construction.

Police suspected that Jin was lending high-rollers bags of cash from “transnational drug trafficking,” Lottery Corp. documents allege. In an underground banking scheme imported from Macau casinos, the VIPs used the cash to buy chips, mostly at River Rock, and paid back the “loans” in China with little or no interest, according to the documents.

WATCH: The criminals fuelling Canada’s fentanyl crisis

The alleged scheme is a win-win-win for the gangsters and the Chinese gamblers. The gamblers could evade China’s tight currency export controls, get their wealth offshore and invest in Canadian real estate, using B.C. casinos as the conduit to obscure drug cash paper trails.

And the transnational gangsters could wash drug sales in B.C. and transfer funds back to gang bank accounts in China to produce and export more fentanyl precursors, according to RCMP’s forensic banking investigations.

WATCH: A look at exactly how profitable the opioid is for criminals in Canada.

Experts on the Big Circle Boys say the gang is directed from inside China, and some connected Chinese officials and industrialists are VIP gamblers in Metro Vancouver. Police are investigating these suspected crime bosses. But they are seen as untouchable in China, and insulated from actual drug transactions in B.C., sources say.

But just underneath the untouchables, the sources say, are cells of kingpin entrepreneurs involved in many illegal schemes to wash and multiply drug cash.

Allegedly beat victims with metal bars

In December 2015, B.C. Lottery Corp. investigators linked an alleged illegal casino at 8880 Sidaway to the Big Circle Boys.

A B.C. civil forfeiture claim alleged the hidden owner was Lap San Peter Pang. Citing RCMP investigations, the claim alleged the property was an illegal casino that was an instrument of money laundering and violent crime, and among grand rooms where VIPs gambled, drank and danced, in other rooms extortion victims were kidnapped, stabbed, and held hostage at gunpoint. In June 2017, one victim arrived in Richmond hospital with a broken arm and nose, after being confined and beat with a metal bar by Pang and his associates, the claim alleges.

Lottery Corp. investigators were interested in real estate surrounding the casino, too. They found that a cluster of residential and commercial plots nearby, and valued at about $150 million, was connected to corruption suspects from China and notorious Big Circle Boys associates.

In his response to the claim, Pang denied all the allegations and any ownership of 8880 Sidaway. The property was sold in 2018 and the case continues. Pang’s response noted he had not been charged despite two separate investigations by the RCMP and anti-gang Combined Special Forces unit running from 2015 to 2017.

Pang has never been charged in Canada, according to public records. But he has been known to police in Vancouver since 1991 and is alleged to be associated with heroin shipments from Guangdong and the top heroin importers in Canada, according to confidential sources cited in B.C. Supreme Court filings.

WATCH: Charges stayed in Canada’s biggest drug money laundering investigation

In one case, officers followed Pang in his BMW to his Vancouver apartment as part of a weapons trafficking investigation. One of his associates, described as an international heroin kingpin, walked out of Pang’s apartment with a machine gun, police alleged. The man was convicted but Pang was not charged.

Corporate records show that Peter Pang was also tied to Paul King Jin and a man named Wei Qing Zhang. All three were listed as directors of Jin’s Richmond massage parlour, Water Club, among a number of directors from Guangdong.

The business was shut down in 2011 for Richmond bylaw infractions, according to investigation documents, and also linked to high-level drug-traffickers and suspected prostitution.

Red Guard Roots

The Big Circle Boys originated in China’s paramilitary Red Guards, and after clashing with China’s army in the late 1960s, members were sent to prison in southern China. But some gang members escaped and infiltrated Hong Kong, where they “turned their military prowess to crime,” according to Canadian court records. The gang now thrives among the unregulated factories and underground banks of Guangdong, and especially in the city Guangzhou, also known as Canton, and nicknamed the “Big Circle.”

They spread rapidly across Canadian cities in the 1990s, and confidential informants say Big Circle Boys are trusted bonding agents among many actors in fluid networks of Asian drug-trafficking.

Filings in Canadian legal cases explain how the network operates, and its connection to elites in China. In one refugee claim case, a factory owner that fled to Canada claimed he was chased from his home country after he reported that a neighbouring factory was producing ecstasy.

The man said that after reporting his allegations to police in Guangdong, he was attacked by gangsters, and learned the drug factory was run by Big Circle Boys with links to Chinese government, military and police officials.

In another B.C. Supreme Court case naming Big Circle Boys and kingpins allegedly associated to Peter Lap San Pang, a confidential informant told Vancouver police the top heroin importer to Canada “was well established in China among high ranking police and government officials … and untouchable in China.”

Super-facilitator

In 2016, when RCMP continued with major surveillance operations targeting crime cells active in Richmond casinos and suspected drug labs, police intelligence alleged a network of Jin, Pang, and a Burnaby man named Ge “Gary” Wang, were linked to a B.C. entrepreneur who owned a Richmond chemistry business. Ge Wang has denied all allegations in court filings.

Within any major drug importation scheme, police intelligence sources said, there are kingpins, violent operatives, and financial facilitators, as well as underworld entrepreneurs known as super-facilitators.

From a Facebook profile advertising Douglas Pare’s charitable work in Vancouver, the 40-year-old from Windsor appears to be the sort of youthful millionaire who could be running a technology start-up in San Francisco or Seattle.

But his businesses and partners raise questions.

After arriving in Vancouver, Pare launched Esoteric Communications, a cellular encryption technology start-up. Pare’s equal partners in Esoteric were Craig Widdifield and Jeff Chang, according to corporate records. Both were well-known drug-traffickers, anti-gang police in B.C. say.

WATCH: How Chinese gangs are laundering drug money through Vancouver real estate

Widdifield was shot and killed in a Surrey gang hit in 2013. And Chang, who police say came from an Asian organized crime family in Burnaby, survived a targeted shooting in Vancouver in 2014, before dying of an unintentional drug overdose in 2015.

It was Pare’s Richmond chemical company, Quest Research Canada, that police linked to the investigation of suspects active at River Rock Casino and 8880 Sidaway, a source said.

A civil forfeiture claim says Pare rented space for Quest and also a shipping container on Mitchell Island, which is a small port on the Fraser River, in Richmond.

Citing RCMP investigations, the claim alleges that since 2014, Pare and Quest have imported 85 tons of chemicals and precursors used in the production of fentanyl, methamphetamine, LSD and ecstasy.

While the RCMP would not comment on the case, it could be the largest chemical seizure related to fentanyl production in Canadian history.

“That’s a massive amount, it’s almost indescribable,” Simon Fraser University criminologist Rob Gordon said. “That is like small mountains of chemical piles, in truck-loads.”

Pare allegedly concealed chemicals for fentanyl and methamphetamine production in these locations, and used his Porsche Boxster 718 and Mercedes ML350 to exchange the chemicals in meetings with alleged drug-trafficking associates.

These associates were followed by police to Richmond drug labs, the claim alleges. Ge “Gary” Wang was one of the associates identified delivering pails to suspected Richmond drug labs, according to source information and a separate civil forfeiture claim.

But in a legal response forwarded to Global News after this story was published, a lawyer for Douglas Pare stated that Pare is not a “super-facilitator” and has had no involvement in the manufacture of illegal drugs.  The lawyer stated that none of the chemicals seized from Quest Research could be used as precursors, and that the chemicals were all tested and nothing seized was found to be illegal.

‘They just walked away from this cash like it was nothing’

As investigations into Douglas Pare and Wang progressed, simultaneously at locations minutes away from Mitchell Island, a Vancouver police drug-trafficking investigation focused on 58-year-old Wei Zhang, an alleged associate of Jin.

Zhang came to Canada in 1992 and became a permanent resident in 2003 despite a criminal record that included a weapons offence, an Immigration and Refugee Board case shows.

His long list of criminal charges winds through many of the rackets the Big Circle Boys and their associates have cornered in Canada.

Zhang has been charged with breaching ban orders related to Lottery Corp. casinos in Richmond, Vancouver and Coquitlam, and he was fined $196,000 for illegal cigarette sales, among a number of assault convictions, court records show.

In May 2016, Vancouver police connected Wei Zhang and three Chinese suspects to drug and cash houses located in condo towers on the Vancouver border of the Fraser River, beside Mitchell Island, according to allegations in a civil forfeiture proceeding. The documents say police followed the suspects to parking lots across Metro Vancouver, where they appeared to make drug deals.

Police say they followed Wei Zhang from a Marine Drive condo tower to a nearby Tim Hortons parking lot in Richmond, where they watched him pull a suitcase stuffed with $513,000 from the trunk of his White Range Rover and roll the suitcase toward two suspects who pulled up in a black Mercedes.

Wei Zhang placed the suitcase in the trunk of the Mercedes and police moved in, according to court documents.

In seizure operations that included the vehicles, Vancouver condo units, and multiple tote bags, police say they found a total of $660,000, two money counters, electronic tokens for offshore bank accounts, a Chinese passport and drug dealing gear.

Lab tests found that some of the cash seized contained concentrations of fentanyl, heroin and cocaine. Zhang has not been charged in the Vancouver investigation and he could not be reached for comment.

“They just walked away from this cash like it was nothing,” said a source, who described the suspects as fentanyl kingpins.

“They said, ‘Okay, we’ll just take our golf clubs.’”

Zhang is also allegedly a big player in Chinese community real estate lending schemes, legal filings show.

A cross-referencing of confidential B.C. Lottery Corp. documents, land title, real estate and civil court records, shows that Wei Zhang, Paul Jin, and several alleged fentanyl kingpins have used B.C. courts to enforce many millions in real estate loans. The loans were allegedly made to a network of VIP gamblers, and a suspected Big Circle Boys associate connected to 8880 Sidaway.

WATCH: Global News online journalist Sam Cooper shares details about his new investigative series looking at the link between fentanyl and organized crime operating in B.C. 

Confidential documents obtained by Global News show that dozens of these VIPs were connected by Lottery Corp. investigators to alleged massive cash and casino chip loans from Paul Jin and his many suspected loan shark employees, mostly servicing River Rock casino high-rollers. This same alleged network of Jin-associated VIPs completed hundreds of suspicious cash transactions inside B.C. Lottery casinos, documents show.

Some of these VIPs, who claim to be oil, mining and industrial magnates, are also involved in major land assembly developments and crowd-funding schemes in Metro Vancouver, lending documents show.

Mitchell Island bust

Several months after Vancouver police seized Wei Zhang’s cash, the RCMP moved in on Douglas Pare, Ge “Gary” Wang and drug labs in Richmond and Burnaby.

On Nov. 23 2016, police executed a search warrant at Quest’s Mitchell Island office. Police say they found a secret compartment containing a large amount of iodine, according to allegations in a civil forfeiture case, which police said is used in the manufacture of methamphetamine.

Case documents allege that Pare was arrested for production of a controlled substance and laundering the proceeds of crime, and two Richmond drug labs were searched and shut down. Pare has not responded to repeated requests for comments. He denies all allegations in the civil forfeiture claim, and it’s not known if he’s ever been charged.

On Nov. 25, 2016, officers stopped Ge Wang as he loaded buckets into his Nissan Pathfinder. They arrested him and searched the vehicle, seizing a number of drums containing NPP, a fentanyl precursor produced in China, according to allegations in the civil forfeiture claim.

The claim doesn’t specify exactly how much NPP was seized, and RCMP search warrants regarding Wang and Pare have been sealed by the court. But according to an unrelated seizure case in Massachusetts, several containers of NPP weighing 50 kilograms could produce 19 million fentanyl pills worth US$570-million on the street.

Two months later, police raided Wang’s residence in Burnaby and found at least 82 kilograms of chemicals, according to the allegations in the court documents.

The documents allege that police seized containers with unknown chemicals, lab equipment and two drums containing 57 kilograms of phosphoric acid, which is a precursor in methamphetamine production.

Police say they also confiscated a 25-kilogram drum of potassium iodide, a compound related to iodine (the same substance allegedly seized from Pare’s secret storage unit in Richmond) — as well as gun licenses.

In related investigations, police alleged that in early 2017 Ge Wang had obtained many weapons from a Richmond hunting store. And as police continued to probe Richmond drug labs, Wang was caught delivering seven of the guns to high-level members of the Red Scorpions, a violent Metro Vancouver opioid dial-a-dope gang, according to allegations in a civil forfeiture claim and police reports. In a legal response, Wang denied any wrongdoing.

The Richmond gun shop owner is an associate of Paul King Jin and a network of River Rock VIP gamblers, according to sources. Through numbered companies, since 2016 the Richmond gun shop owner has been involved in about $34-million worth of land assembly deals, including buying farmland in Richmond, and a block of single family homes in Coquitlam, according to land title and corporate documents.

Ge “Gary” Wang did not respond to questions from Global News. But he has previously denied any connections to fentanyl and weapons trafficking, and claims that he is just a delivery man for hire, who police have wrongfully linked to Paul King Jin.

New UN Declaration: Migrants Have Rights & Canadians Have Obligations

New UN Declaration: Migrants Have Rights & Canadians Have Obligations

Do your future a favour. Contact your MP and 1. alert him or her to a sinister conference to take place in drug sodden Marakesh, Morocco, and 2. demand that he vote against the Marakesh accord. Stoned or not, world leaders are being asked to endorse a lunatic declaration affirming the “rights” of migrants and OUR obligation to admit,  feed, and shelter them and, almost equally insane, our obligation to suppress criticism of the invasion. Don’t be mollified by being told that it’s merely a declaration, not a binding treaty. Over the years, Canadian governments have disloyally signed on to a number of UN conventions that have been used to strip Canadian of their rights. For instance, the interventionist New Brunswick Court of Queen’s Bench cited Canada’s endorsement of the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination as justification for tearing up the will of the late Robert McCorkill who had willed his estate to the National Alliance, a U.S. White nationalist, allegedly “racist” group.

 

The Toronto Sun’s Candice Malcolm comments: “The Trudeau government is cheerleading a controversial United Nations initiative that has the potential to fundamentally change Canada.

It’s called the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration, and UN representatives are meeting in Morocco in December to discuss and adopt this global agreement. It may sound like just another gathering of out-of-touch elites patting themselves on the back, and the compact’s text insists the agreement is non-binding. But the ideas proposed are not your run-of-the-mill aspirational  pledges. This UN compact is unprecedented and truly radical. It seeks to make immigration a universal human right.

‘Refugees and migrants are entitled to the same universal human rights and fundamental freedoms, which must be respected, protected and fulfilled at all times,’ reads the document’s preamble.

The agreement doesn’t simply apply to bona-fide refugees — those fleeing war and persecution whose government has failed to protect them. It applies to all migrants. It seeks to change international law and norms on migration, and blur the distinction between refugees and migrants — the latter merely seeking more economic opportunity but failing to do so according to a country’s established immigration rules. The compact stops just short of saying that every person from around the world has a right to live in Canada and become a Canadian citizen.

Illegals demanding charity

 

And it gets even worse. Alongside describing a world with no borders and no meaningful citizenship, the document includes a particularly disturbing section about the media. One of the ‘guiding principles’ is a ‘whole-of-society approach’ to promoting mass migration, including the role of the media. It calls upon governments to ‘promote independent, objective and quality reporting… and stopping allocation of public funding or material support to media outlets that systematically promote intolerance, xenophobia, racism and other forms of discrimination towards migrants.’

 

So much for a free press. The UN wants governments to actively intervene in the media and pick and choose which journalists are worthy of promoting, based on a radical ideology and far-left worldview. Is this what the Liberal government’s new $595-million media slush fund seeks to do? The prime minister and his top officials are known for name-calling and attacking anyone who disagrees with their dogma on immigration, diversity and multiculturalism.  Liberal officials frequently accuse opponents of being intolerant, xenophobic and racist for raising legitimate concerns about illegal immigration, border security and terrorism.

Are these accusations going to be tied to funding decisions for the media? Will recipients of Trudeau’s media fund be prohibited from criticizing open borders and mass migration? Will funding be tied to an attestation to promote UN propaganda? The Trudeau government has played a leading role in advancing this UN scheme; two Trudeau cabinet minister’s admitted so much in a September article in Maclean’s Magazine. ‘The UN’s global compact on refugees could be a game-changer — and Canada is well-placed to make it a reality,’ they argue.

 

This dystopian UN plan seeks to erase borders, destroy the concept of citizenship, undermine the rule of law and circumvent state sovereignty. It would change what it means to be Canadian and prevent the media from criticizing these fundamental changes.

Several of our allies, including Australia, the U.S. and Israel have already pulled out of this disastrous UN compact. Across the world, political leaders and respected journalists are ringing the alarm bell.

In Canada, however, the Trudeau government is welcoming this UN scheme, while most Canadian journalists are failing to inform Canadians about the radical changes on our doorstep. (Toronto Sun, December 1, 2018)

Manufacturing Heroes: The Beatification of Viola Desmond

Posted on by

Manufacturing Heroes: The Beatification of Viola Desmond

“When a man starts to hate himself the path to destruction is already open, the same is true of a nation.”
Vivekananda

 

So Viola Desmond’s face finally made it on Canada’s new ten dollar bill. Not a moment too soon though, because the suspense has been killing me.  Ever since the media announced two years ago that Desmond was the winner of contest to see which Canadian heroine would displace John A. MacDonald.

 

I recall that moment with clarity.   Global TV News had just finished talking about the achievements of the late John Glenn, when Viola’s fan club came up to the plate. The newscaster described Desmond’s refusal to move from the “whites only” area of the Roseland movie theatre as a “brave and defiant act” and a “transformative protest”. To bolster the point, interviewee Dr. Annette Henry noted that since she did it 9 years before Rosa Park, Rosa Park was the American Viola Desmond, rather than the reverse. Makes you proud to be a Canadian, doesn’t it?

 

Two things quickly occurred to me. Neither Global National or BC Global News used the word “brave” to describe John Glenn’s first voyage in space. In other words, it apparently took more courage to defy the seating arrangement rules of a movie theatre in Nova Scotia than it did to sit at the top end of a rocket, be propelled into space, revolve twice around the planet in a tiny capsule, re-enter the atmosphere and land in the ocean intact.

 

Keep in mind that as humiliating as it was for a black woman  in Nova Scotia to be denied entry to a portion of a movie theatre because of her race, there wasn’t a lynch party of Klansmen waiting outside for her when she left. Her refusal to leave her seat prompted the theatre manager and a police officer to drag her off, and in the ensuing scuffle, her hip was injured.  But still, suffering an injury of that nature, and being jailed and fined didn’t carry the risk that Glenn incurred. The repercussions that Desmond suffered were less than life-threatening. Glenn’s life in space was on the line for 5 hours. Courage? Bravery? Game-changing? My vote would go the astronaut.

The other salient fact that emerged from Desmond’s beatification is that—to use the words of the Global News reporter—“in 2018 John A. MacDonald will be bumped off the $10 bill” to make way for Desmond. That, to me, offers the most significant clue as to what this is all about. It is about an Anglo-Celtic Canadian, a member of one of two founding nations, a nation-builder, being replaced by what a social justice warrior’s idea of what a real hero looks like. . It is a statement that one symbolic blow against social injustice in a movie theatre is of greater importance than the building of the railway that actually created a nation from sea to sea. I mean, what did John A. MacDonald do—-except be instrumental in the movement to build a national railway and complete a nation?  Had there been no MacDonald, there would have no Canadian currency to exhibit Viola Desmond’s likeness. No Orders of Canada or awards to celebrate Canadian heroes because there would be no Canadians to celebrate.  (Then again, there wouldn’t have been a CBC either, so maybe it would have better if John A. had never been born.)

 

Ah, but you see, MacDonald the nation-builder was a racist who did much harm to native people, and racists don’t deserve to be on our currency or standing in front of Victoria City Hall for that matter. Or so goes the vindictive anti-white narrative of the social justice coalition. But the truth is, as Richard Gwynne pointed out, MacDonald was unusually liberal-minded for his time.

 

VIOLA DESMOND

 “Among his lifelong friends were Indians and Métis. He wasn’t in the least afraid to tell the truth about relations between native people and whites, as in: ‘We must remember they are the original owners of the soil of which they have been dispossessed by the covetousness or ambition of our ancestors’. Most remarkably, he got MPs to agree to the most imaginative reform of his time: any Indian could gain the vote while retaining all his privileges, such as freedom from taxes. Unhappily, Laurier cancelled this reform, with the measure not restored until John Diefenbaker did so in 1960, which was far too late to make any difference.”

 

Gwynne continued,

“His actual policy for getting food to the Indians — one his critics always avoid citing — was: ‘We cannot as Christians, and as men with hearts in our bosoms, allow the vagabond Indian to die before us . . . We must prevent them from starving, in consequence of the extinction of the buffalo and their not yet (having) betaken themselves to raising crops’ “.https://www.thestar.com/news/insight/2015/01/09/sir_john_a_macdonald_the_greatest_pm_of_all.html

The man was obviously not a saint, but then who was? Certainly not his aboriginal counterparts. Certainly not Chief McQuinna of the Nootka who had a Vancouver school named after him. MacDonald had many faults but cannibalism wasn’t one of them.  He drank whiskey, but never blood.  And the”genocide” which he was falsely accused of was not an uncommon practice of native tribes and tribal leaders in countless tribal wars across the land for millennia. European settlers did not invent ethnic cleansing.

Viola Desmond’s champions tell us that it is important for Canadians to know their history, especially young Canadians. Retired Manitoba Judge Brian Giesbrecht would concur. He wrote that it is both “proper and necessary” for children to be taught the history of Canada’s Indian Residential Schools (IRS) because “… a caring and compassionate society should know its history, warts and all.”  Then Giesbrecht added a crucial qualification. “But the history that is being taught needs to be accurate. And the IRS story entering classrooms is not accurate at all.” https://fcpp.org/2017/11/02/teaching-the-residential-school-story

As an example, Giesbrecht cited the well-known Chanie (Charlie) Wenjack story.

”He was the unhappy Indigenous boy who supposedly ran away from the Residential School he was attending after suffering physical and sexual abuse from Roman Catholic priests and nuns. This version of the Chanie story is the subject of a popular song, and appears as well in several books, CBC videos, and numerous articles. His story is very moving, and increasingly our nation’s children accept it as fact. Except that it isn’t fact. It comes nowhere close to being the truth.

The fact is that Chanie Wenjack did not attend a Residential School…(And) there is absolutely no evidence that Roman Catholic priests or nuns abused Chanie as implied in the song, books, and in the video about his life. There is no evidence that he had any contact at all with priests and nuns, much less abusive contact.

Chanie’s story is indeed a very sad one, but the fact that so many people have played fast and loose with its truth should greatly trouble Canadians.

What has been done with Chanie’s story typifies the types of distortion –– half truths, exaggerations, and misleading information –– that characterize so much of the Residential School story many Canadians now believe to be fact.”

Space does not allow for the full reproduction of Giesbrecht’s damning revelations here, but you get the gist. Most of what Canadians have been told about IRS by the social justice industry and its CBC mouthpiece is a goddamn lie.  Fake history customized to serve the far left agenda of the day.  Today it is the plight of aboriginal children or the systemic racism against blacks. Tomorrow it may be about the bullying of transgender people, or alleged wage income gap between men and women. But in every case, viewers are left to ask, “Is that the truth—or did you hear it on the CBC?”

The Viola Desmond story has now joined a pantheon of dubious narratives that form the catechism of exposes, indictments and accusations that social justice warriors ritually trot out against white settlers and their descendents, against Canada’s two founding  peoples and all Canadians of European ancestry. It sounds like a broken record.  The Chinese Head Tax. The Oriental Exclusion Act. The Komagata Maru incident. The St. Louis. Japanese Internment. The Indian Residential Schools. And from now to eternity, the Viola Desmond Story. Lest we forget, more and more days and more and more months are being dedicated to designated victim groups, to the memory of white-inflicted injuries and the celebration of their heroic and resilient victims. Repeated lies become facts. And sins become indelible.

True to form, what we have heard and seen concerning the Viola Desmond story is often contradictory.  After ploughing through the 44 minute documentary “Long Journey to Justice”, the one minute video of  the Roseland theatre incidence, plus numerous articles and interviews, one can be forgiven for feeling confused.  For example, in her song “Viola Desmond” singer Faith Nolan tells us that Desmond “sat down under a sign that said ‘no blacks allowed’, but according to Wikipedia there was no sign that informed patrons about seat segregation. Another article stated that Desmond was sold a ticket to the cheaper balcony seats without being aware of black-white seating policy. However, in the one minute video, when the Desmond character asked for “one ticket down’ she was promptly told that those seats were not available to “you people”.

Another version had Desmond walking toward the downstairs section after purchasing a ticket and being called back because she didn’t have a ticket for that section. Her ‘place’ was in the balcony with ‘her kind’.  Her heroism consisted in the spontaneous decision to turn around and find a seat there anyway. In that case her resistance did not begin until after she sat down in the forbidden seat, and at that point, she could not have been unaware of the segregation policy. All accounts agree that when the usher brought the manager over to order Desmond to leave, she was eventually dragged out by “two burly men”, arrested, sent to jail with an injured hip, and without being informed of her “right” to counsel. The trouble is, there was no “right to call a lawyer” in 1946.  Even Americans did not have Miranda rights until 1966, while Canadians had to wait for the 1962 Bill of Rights and Section 10 of the 1982 Charter of Rights and Freedoms to win a partial semblance of Miranda.

Of course, against the backdrop of racial discrimination in Nova Scotia, and Canada at large, critics would dismiss these challenges as mere nitpicking  Maybe, but they serve to illustrate that Leftist narratives must not be swallowed without a least one grain of salt. Court cases and narratives can turn on a neglected or incorrect detail.  And given their track record of misinterpreting seminal events like the Vancouver riot of 1907 and the aforementioned “pantheon” of shameful white misdeeds, one be excused for treating Leftist historiography with deep scepticism.

The ‘big picture’, as I  see  it, is not the reality of the patchy and inconsistent color bar that existed  in post war Nova Scotia, but the attempt by black activists and their allies to paint anti-black racism in Canada in the same bold and harsh terms as prevailed in the Deep South. Unbelievably, when Canadian activists are made aware of how much rougher life was for blacks in America, they say what was said in the documentary.  “At least down South, blacks knew what the rules were, but here the rules varied from place to place day to day.”  Which leads one to ask, if white Canadians were so horribly racist, why wasn’t there an underground railway in the other direction?

The point here is that our enemies are manufacturing history and manufacturing heroes, while  discrediting ours. Media outlets like the CBC are not giving us the full goods. As a consequence, a whole generation is being brought up to believe in a world that never was. Yet they accuse “the Right” of nostalgia for a past that never happened. A classic case of projection.

CBC journalists, history teachers and academics all work for the Ministry of Truth. Like Orwell’s  Winston Smith in 1984, their work consists of revising “back issues” to conform to the present narrative, in service of a globalist agenda. They have made Viola Desmond a courageous, trailblazing hero, of the same stature as a Canadian soldier dodging German bullets as he stormed their bunkers at Juno Beach.  Give us a break.

 

It has been often said that “Those whom the gods wish to destroy they first make mad.” In Canada it would be more appropriate to say that “Those nations the gods wish to destroy they first murder their past”.  The CBC is on a tear to revise our history.  One by one they trot out victims of white racism who overcame discrimination to achieve great things, one identity group at a time.  In one week we got Viola Desmond, Willie O’Ree and “The Grant Fuhr Story”.  I  brace myself for what is to come next month.

 

The CBC has also dedicated hours of programming to tell our children that their great grandparents were racists who excluded Chinese, Indians, and Jews out of pure bigotry.  As previously stated, a closer examination of the facts would indicate that much of this ‘racism’ consisted in attempt to stem the influx of cheap imported labour which was driving down the living standards of Canadian workers.  But this side of the story never gets a hearing.

The end game is to deprive old stock Canadians and their descendants of the moral authority to restrict immigration, resist quota hiring, or reverse the blatant discrimination against white male students and job applicants. Thanks to classroom indoctrination students believe that white settlers stole the land, oppressed racial minorities, and contributed nothing to their well being. So it is not “OK to be white.”

The jury has handed down its verdict. White people, the Canadians of European origin, are a blight. So why  shouldn’t they expiate their original sins by joining the mob to tear down more of their statues—and celebrate the alleged courage of manufactured heroes and the disgrace and demise of their own?

Oh, one more question.  Since we replaced John A. MacDonald with Viola Desmond on our ten dollar bill, do you think Americans would replace George Washington with Rosa Parks on their one dollar bill? Not in your life.

JUDGING SUPREME COURT JUSTICE ROSALIE SILBERMAN ABELLA
Attention Fellow Canadian :
 
Immigration Watch Canada sends you its latest bulletin : “Judging Canada’s Supreme Court Judge Rosalie Abella”
 
In the past month, PM Trudeau announced yet another government apology, this time to Canada’s Jews. According to Trudeau, Canada had sinned greatly in 1939 by denying entry to Canada to Jews fleeing Europe aboard the ship St. Louis. According to Trudeau, those Jews were forced to return to Europe and suffer WW2’s Holocaust.
 
Before issuing any other apologies, Trudeau should do some important research. The family of Rosalie Abella, one of the judges on Canada’s present Supreme Court, survived the Holocaust and migrated to Canada after World War 2. In the mid-1980’s, ironically, Rosalie Abella , in a campaign of arrogant and sloppy research, released an “Employment Equity” report which ignited a virtual Holocaust within Canada. That Holocaust has destroyed the job-hopes and entire lives of at least hundreds of thousands of Canadians. In fact, the number of victims may well exceed the 6 million figure of Jews killed in Europe. If Canadians are to hear another apology, it should be coming from Canada’s Supreme Court Judge Rosalie Abella and the herd of “Diversity-hiring” promoters she unleashed in Canada’s public and private sectors. If Trudeau is remotely interested in performing his duty to Canadian-born, he should be demanding an apology from Abella and her herd of boot-lickers and should be ending the so-called “Employment Equity” (really “Employment Inequity”) program she started. After that, how about some Canadian-style Nurenberg Trials to deal with Abella and all those who have carried out the alleged “solution”.

Judging Supreme Court Justice Rosalie Abella
By Dr. Martin Loney
Written in 2004, following Rosalie Abella’s appointment to Canada’s Supreme Court
 
The appointment of Rosalie Abella to the Supreme Court has precipitated much celebration among the progressive chattering classes. Globe and Mail correspondent, Michael Valpy, enthused that Abella would bring ‘an unassailable and much needed expertise and vision on equality law’ to the court.
 
Well, not quite “unassailable”. I have spent many years researching and writing on employment equity, the subject of Abella’s 1984 Royal Commission Report. What stands out is how much Abella’s work is driven by feminist ideology and how little it is concerned with evidence.
 
Abella’s 1984 report made sweeping claims about labour market discrimination but found it unnecessary to back them with hard data. According to her report, women’s progress in the labour force was ‘chimerical’; ‘dramatic changes’ were needed to allow women to participate in a full range of educational opportunities.
 
This was a curious conclusion since by 1982 women were already the majority of university graduates and no less than 58 per cent of community college graduates. Today women are 40 per cent more likely to obtain an undergraduate degree than their male counterparts.
 
Much of the report reflects nothing more than the search for any evidence that will support the preconceived conclusion that women and other so-called designated groups experience disadvantage.
 
Feminists see any earnings differentials or disparity in employment as prima facie proof of injustice. What is required in contrast is the careful comparison of those with similar profiles. Comparing the earnings of men and women is meaningless unless we take into account such factors as age, hours worked, qualifications, length of service and type of employment. The Royal Commission preferred instead to make more sweeping comparisons.
 
According to the report, women, in 1982, made a mere 64 per cent of male earnings. However, the report does not say that the rapid change in female labour force participation saw large numbers of young women enter the labour force. To compare their earnings with a group which contains a large number of older men or to claim that their relative absence in senior positions is evidence of discrimination is simply polemics.
 
The inclusion of visible minorities in the Royal Commission’s mandate owed much to the American experience though the marked difference in the history of the two countries should have suggested more careful reflection.
 
In the U.S., affirmative action programs have been driven by the desire to redress the legacy of slavery. Canada, in contrast, had few slaves and largely abolished the institution of slavery by the end of the eighteenth century. The overwhelming majority of visible minorities in Canada are free migrants. It is inconceivable that the U.S would have instituted a costly and divisive preferential hiring program to address the temporary adjustment difficulties of new immigrants, but that is precisely what the Abella report ushered in.
 
 
The Royal Commission might have urged caution; after all as one of its researchers warned, the absence of any definition of ‘visible minority’ and of related data prevented any assessment of the ‘social indicators of discrimination’.
 
Abella was not to be deterred. Racism, she reported, ‘though sometimes inadvertent, is nevertheless pervasive’. The inadvertent racism was no doubt a fashionable reference to that mysterious virus ‘systemic discrimination’ which remains as widespread as it is ill defined. Pervasive racism must, however, have demonstrable consequences. It must result in visible minorities, with similar characteristics to other Canadians, earning markedly less. If those who have the same educational background, the same years of experience and the same language capacities as other Canadians fare just as well, what need is there for a costly and divisive preferential hiring program?
 
Subsequent analysis of 1986 census data by demographer Monica Boyd, an avowed feminist, found little difference in earnings of Canadian-born visible minorities and other Canadian-born workers. The famously “doubly-disadvantaged visible minority women” earned a little more than their singly-disadvantaged sisters; visible minority men earned an insignificant amount less.
 
A later analysis of Statistics Canada data by University of Manitoba economists Hum and Simpson also found little difference in the earnings of Canadian-born visible minorities.
 
Such findings have been ignored. The Abella report fuelled a growing industry of diversity trainers, preferential hirers, anti-harassment officers and others whose occupational success means the endless search for yet more evidence of discrimination. Canadian universities were hijacked by radical feminists who used federal employment equity legislation to hire others who shared their biology and ideology.
 
Today, qualified women are twice as likely to secure academic appointment as their male competitors.
 
Abella will bring to the Supreme Court a vision of equality rights rooted not in careful analysis, but radical feminism. To Abella, as she made clear in a later essay, equality does not mean being ‘chained to the civil libertarian pedestal of equal treatment of every individual’. Those with a prior claim of victim status (however dubious) are entitled to be treated differently and advantageously. This is the philosophy that Abella will bring to her new job, one that offers little chance of justice to those with no claim on the feminist conscience.

GOATS SLAUGHTERED IN WASHROOM BY NIGERIAN ILLEGALS IN TORONTO HOTEL

GOATS SLAUGHTERED IN WASHROOM BY NIGERIAN ILLEGALS IN TORONTO HOTEL

LEVY: ‘Irregular’ migrants continue to flock into Toronto

A group of women watch their children outside the Radisson hotel at Hwy 401 and Victoria Park Ave. in North York on Tuesday. (Jack Boland/Toronto Sun) 

Ottawa, we have a problem..

It’s not just that Toronto’s shelters are full — with 2,600 or 39.2% of the spaces occupied by refugees, er asylum seekers, irregular migrants (whatever we’re calling them today.)

But according to city spokesman Natasha Hinds Fitzsimmins Tuesday, some 18-20 are arriving in the city per day, mostly from Nigeria.

According to Hinds Fitzsimmins, the federal government procured two hotels in Peel and York to house the irregular (a.k.a. illegal) migrants who were placed in the Centennial and Humber college dorms earlier in the summer.

As reported by Canadian Press, the federal government has extended their hotel stay four weeks beyond the original deadline of Sept. 30 because they have yet to come up with a more long-term approach that would send the refugees to communities beyond Toronto.

There are also 1,719 irregular (illegal) migrants/refugees/asylum seekers in Toronto hotels, including  577 housed at the Radisson Toronto East hotel in 146 rooms (the hotel has 240 rooms in total).

The reputable Tripadvisor website has been inundated in the past few weeks with scathing reviews of the hotel, calling it a “zoo, filthy, noisy and dangerous” with the lobby full of loitering refugees and halls containing graffiti and garbage.

Every paying visitor on Trip Advisor has claimed they did not know and were not told that 61% of the hotel is being occupied by refugees.

On Tuesday, one visitor from Virginia —calling the three-star hotel a “disgrace” —claimed that animal services needed to be called on the second night he was there because “some goats were being slaughtered” in the public bathrooms.
The visitor said gunfire was also heard outside the hotel that same night.

(Believe me I can’t make this stuff up!)

Asked what the city has spent to date housing irregular migrants/refugees/asylum seekers, Hinds Fitzsimmins said the costs from November 2017 to the end of this year will likely be “in excess” of $64.5-million.

She said the city doesn’t know how much more at this time, although I would bet that number is being kept quiet until after the Oct. 22 election—especially considering Toronto council and the mayor helped exacerbate the problem by very publicly reaffirming (to all who would listen) in early 2017 that Toronto is a Sanctuary City.

Up to now the city has only received $11-million from the feds to help defray the costs.

Immigration and the Housing Affordability Crisis in Sydney and Melbourn

Posted on by
Immigration and the Housing Affordability Crisis in Sydney and Melbourne
By Bob Birrell and Ernest Healy,
The Australian Population Institute
Monash University, Melbourne
Executive Summary :
The housing affordability crisis in Sydney and Melbourne is close to the worst in the developed world. Only Vancouver and Hong Kong were as bad or worse on this metric.
The result is an inter-generational divide in which the younger generation have diminishing prospects of attaining the housing their parents’ generation enjoy. Property owners are feasting on extraordinary capital gains at the expense of young people who, in Sydney and Melbourne, will never experience any similar benefits because they cannot get onto even the lowest rung of the property ladder.
Why is the crisis so severe?
The answer is no secret.
First, successive Australian governments have kept in place significant tax incentives for owner-occupiers to upgrade and investors to purchase existing residential property.
Second, the Coalition government has maintained very high migration levels, with around two-thirds of the net intake currently locating in Sydney and Melbourne. Migrants are the main contributors to the growth in both cities’ populations of over 100,000 each year.
The consequences are disturbing. Most young households in Sydney and Melbourne cannot afford to buy a house in established suburban areas. The proportion renting is rising sharply. In Sydney, as home-ownership rates fell, the share of households headed by 30-34 year olds who were renting jumped from 48 per cent in 2011 to 53 per cent in 2016 (Table 1). In Melbourne the increase in this share over the same years was from 43 per cent to 48 per cent.
Many young households have been prompted to move to cheaper housing on the remote frontiers of both cities. There, they have to pay high prices for houses on tiny lots (averaging 400 square metres or less).
Both state governments are encouraging this outward movement by providing financial subsidies in the form of cash payments and stamp duty concessions to first home buyers. These incentives are also available to all migrants holding permanent visas, regardless of the migrant’s property ownership record prior to arriving in Australia.
What to do?
In Sydney, the Greater Sydney Commission (GSC) is setting the pace. It is requiring all municipal councils to prepare plans for additional medium-density dwellings.
Meanwhile the NSW State government has implemented a new medium-density planning code which will allow developers to put more than two dwellings on each detached housing site that they can procure.
This initiative has received the backing of the Grattan Institute and the Reserve Bank. Both want to see it implemented in Melbourne as well. They recommend that zoning constraints on medium density housing in Sydney and Melbourne be reduced in order to stimulate increased medium density dwelling construction.
The population factor
None of these advocates indicates how large the population factor is in the demand side of the equation. Nor do they explore whether their proposals can work given the scale of demand for dwellings in both cities. They have nothing to say about the immigration component of this demand.
The population factor is a black box. We open this box.
In Sydney, the GSC estimates that an additional 35,000 dwellings are needed each year to cope with projected population growth. In Melbourne the planning authorities are assuming a similar number of dwellings is required. The Australian Population Research Institute’s (TAPRI) projections are a little less for Sydney (around 31,000 extra dwellings needed each year) but the same as those of the planning authorities for Melbourne. TAPRI’s projections also indicate that around 19,000 to 20,000 of this need in both cities will be attributable to net overseas migration. As a result, around 64 per cent of Sydney’s need for addition dwellings each year is due to additional overseas migrants and around 54 per cent of Melbourne’s.
Our projections also reveal that, in each city, around 15,000 more dwellings each year will be occupied by the increasing numbers of older resident households. This is because of the ageing factor as the large baby boomer generation replaces the much smaller cohort born before 1950. By 2016 (Table 5) households with a household head aged 50 or older occupied 56 per cent of the detached housing stock in Sydney and 53 per cent in Melbourne. This share will increase.
It is a major contributor – rarely acknowledged – to the housing affordability crisis in Sydney and Melbourne. It in effect amplifies the demand side of the problem. This is because not only must both cities provide an additional 19,000-20,000 dwellings to meet the needs of the growing migrant population, they must do so in a context where the number of existing detached houses available is shrinking because of the ageing factor.
Will the zoning initiative work?
We do not think it will. It has already failed twice. On the first occasion, in both cities, large tracts of land in the inner city and around activity centres were rezoned for high-rise apartment blocks. Huge numbers have been constructed, yet prices for detached housing continue to rise in both cities. The reason is that most new households (including migrants) want family friendly housing. Apartments are unsuitable. Our analysis of occupants of high-rise apartments (Table 6) shows that barely four per cent of these apartments in inner Sydney and Melbourne are occupied by couples or singles with children.
The second failure concerned zoning changes introduced by the 1990s in both cities. These allowed two dwellings to be built, as of right, on most suburban housing sites. Our analysis shows that despite this zoning initiative, relatively few such dwellings have been constructed.
Why? The answer is site costs – that is the escalating price of detached houses in both cities. Developers cannot put two dwellings on most inner and middle suburban house sites for less than $1 million per dwelling.
The proposals to abolish remaining zoning constraints represent the last throw of dice for supply-side advocates. We argue that they will only have a limited impact, for much the same reason that the first zoning initiative has largely failed. The new initiative will add further pressure to site costs because developers will now have to pay even higher prices for detached houses. This is because of the extra value of the site now that more than two dwellings can be constructed on it.
To the extent that the initiative does work, it will do so by providing even less dwelling and protected external space than dual occupancy units provide. In the process, it will detract even further from the suburban ambience that most detached home owners value.
There are doubts that the state governments will be able to enforce the latest zoning initiatives once existing home owners become aware of the implications. The recent backlash in Sydney supports this expectation.
There is no easy solution to Sydney and Melbourne’s housing affordability crisis. Some relaxation of zoning restraints may help. But only if there is parallel action to remove the tax incentives referred to earlier and to reduce the competition for housing flowing from net overseas migration to both cities.
