Opinion: Why did Canada increase immigration targets?


“So how do politicians get away with making immigration policies that ADVANCE THEIR OWN INTERESTS AT THE EXPENSE OF THE GENERAL PUBLIC?”

“The Liberals just showed us how to do it: Appoint a commission of experts with a fancy name like Advisory Council on Economic Growth, staff it with people YOU KNOW TO BE IN FAVOUR of vastly more immigration, publicize the council’s recommendation, and wait for some Libertarians like Terrance Corcoran and Andrew Coyne to SUPPORT IT ENTHUSIASTICALLY in the mass media.”

Brad: This man gets it…how entirely refreshing.

“Then have the Minister of Immigration APPEAR MODERATE and wise by announcing an increase in immigration by only 15.4 per cent, from 260,000 to 300,000, rather than the 73 per cent to 450,000 recommended by the council.”

Brad: Immutably correct…Prof. Grubel truly understands the wily ways of the Liberal propaganda machine. 

“How does mass immigration serve the interests of political parties? It brings financial and electoral support from employers who profit from being able to employ low-skilled and high-skilled labour at wages that are lower than what they would have to pay for Canadian workers.”

” Electoral support also comes from the owners of real estate, developers and brokers, construction workers and mortgage brokers who gain much from the increased business immigrants bring.”

Brad: Beautifully articulated. Now, let’s ask another pertinent question…“How does mass immigration serve the interests of Canadian-born citizens?

Answer: It doesn’t.

“Parties also gain support from immigrant communities who expect to gain political and economic clout, enjoy having family members join them, and benefit from larger markets for ethnic products and media. Support also comes from the large “immigration industry” of social workers, lawyers and language teachers who are paid by the government.”

Brad: More brilliance. The Liberals have understood for decades that immigrant families tend to vote collectively for the same party, and particularly the ruling government at the time these families enter the country.

“Immigration Industry”…exactly. What began as a policy is now an industry. Ditto for Multicultural Policy. 

“These groups benefiting from mass immigration lobby the government effectively, while the general public is unorganized and does not.”

Brad: Let us add one vital point here…much of the reason the general public is unorganized is because when representative organizations such as Cultural Action Party attempt to emulate the successful organization of immigrant and multicultural communities, we are labelled as RACIST, BIGOTED AND XENOPHOBIC.

Considering the present-day demographics of our nation–largely ruled by mass immigration from the third world– this is hypocrisy at its apex— a politically correct, illogical and oppressive force denying ALL communities the right to freedom of speech, assembly, and related civil rights as outlined in Canada’s Charter of Rights And Freedoms.

“The success of this shielding was revealed on the occasion of a recent Munk debate at the University of Toronto, which pitted advocates in favour against advocates against admitting more refugee claimants.”

” In a poll taken before the debate, 75 per cent of the audience wanted more refugees. After the debate and the presentation of facts by the con-side, only 55 per cent of the audience still held that view, a figure likely to become even smaller as the audience digests the facts more fully.

Brad: A great point, which suggests what common-sense Canadians already understand: the more public awareness of the true reality of immigration and multicult, the LESS PUBLIC SUPPORT.

This is one reason why Justin and his minions LOVE LOW INFORMATION VOTERS…and a primary reasons why they promoted the legalization of marijuana. 

Information about many negative effects of mass immigration is kept from the public. For example, recent immigrants, even after many years in Canada, have lower incomes and pay lower taxes while they absorb the same government services as Canadians.”

“As result, immigrants impose a fiscal burden of $30 billion a year on taxpayers, which will grow all the time with the arrival of new immigrants.”

Canadians suffer from the effects immigrants have on the cost of housing and the levels of congestion, pollution and overcrowding in schools, universities and hospitals, the latter especially as the many parents and grandparents of immigrants near the end of their lives and add to the ever-growing wait lists for medical treatment experienced by all Canadians.

Brad: Here, the article alludes to the Family Reunification Immigration Program…the most economically unsound migration policy in the history of our nation…or perhaps, any western nation.

“Immigrants increase Canada’s cultural diversity, but the benefits from it have reached diminishing returns and the development of ethnic enclaves threatens national harmony and security.”

Brad: Firstly, the Liberals LOVE ethnic enclaves. Pourquoi? Because once again, they understand that ethnic enclaves VOTE IN BLOCKS.

Secondly, cultural diversity equates with the diminishment and erosion of traditional elements of Canadian heritage– language, religion, English/French culture, and the like.

Unlike Trudeau and his sunny gang of globalists, millions of Canadians actually VALUE THESE TRADITIONS.

“Unfortunately, governments and the beneficiaries of mass immigration have prevented these facts from reaching wide audiences and allowing political parties to continue to use mass immigration policies for their narrow self-interest.”

Brad: Again, wonderfully articulated. Prof. Grubel has written perhaps the finest article of Canadian immigration in recent history. Too bad the logic, facts and data contained within will be entirely ignored by our government, multicult organizations , immigration benefactors and all the rest.

Such is life under our pseudo-democratic, Liberal-Totalitarian regime.
