AN OPEN LETTER TO CANADA’S IMMIGRATION MINISTER

  

December 11, 2017
Your reasons for increasing Canada’s immigration intake contain three big mistakes.
Here they are :
(1) You said that Canada needs immigrants to deal with its aging population. Wrong!! If you had done your homework you would have realized that over 25 years ago, Ottawa asked its department of Health and Welfare to decide whether Canada should use immigration to solve future aging population issues. The answer was “NO”. Researchers concluded that even if Canada increased immigration to 600,000 per year, the increase would not reduce Canada’s average age or the ratio of older Canadians to younger Canadians. It would be better to get older unemployed men into jobs and to encourage more women to enter the work-force. The CD Howe Institute’s study in 2006 reached a similar conclusion : It found that to have an effect, Canada would have to have an unrealistically high intake of immigrants and would be taking in 7 million immigrants per year and the country’s population would have reached 165 million by 2050. Obviously, that intake would cause social havoc. It would be better to avoid using immigration as a tool and to gradually increase Canada’s retirement age.
(2) You said that immigration drives innovation and strengthens the economy. Wrong !! Once more, if you had done your homework, you would have realized that around 1990, Ottawa asked The Economic Council of Canada to determine if immigration would stimulate (strengthen) the economy. That group looked at Canada’s economic performance in every decade from Confederation to 1990 and concluded that immigration had not stimulated the economy in any previous decade. Its message : If immigration had failed to stimulate Canada’s economy for about 120 years, it was unlikely it would do that in future. Today, with completely senseless immigration, Canada is currently throwing away $35 Billion per year to import people it does not need.
(3) You implied that Canada had to keep increasing its population. Wrong!! You said that immigration-driven population growth now accounts for about 75 per cent of Canada’s population increase and that by 2036, 100 per cent of Canada’s population growth will be as a result of immigration. What good is achieved by increasing a country’s population endlessly? If you had bothered to read the Science Council of Canada’s thorough study regarding an optimum population for Canada, you would have learned that the Science Council (the best scientists in Canada) stated that Canada’s resources are not limitless and that Canada has to restrict its immigration,slow down its population growth and stabilize its population at around 34 million. If Canada does not do these things, it will jeopardize its own food and energy supply, and severely curtail both its standard of living and its national sovereignty.
Here is a vital question you should ask : “Why have I made such a mess of my announcement?” And here’s the answer : You have spent all your time listening to the immigration lobby. Let’s illustrate : If you were in charge of making new laws to curb drug dealers, would you ask Hell’s Angels for advice? Let’s spell it out for you : Here are three of the HELL’S ANGEL equivalents that you have listened to :
(a) the federal government’s own Advisory Council on Economic Growth. That is Bill Morneau Incorporated and should not be trusted.
(b) The Canadian Association of Professional Immigration Consultants. Canada has organized crime but immigration consultants are Canada’s organized slime. They definitely also should not be trusted.
(c) The Canadian Immigrant Settlement Sector Alliance and others. They are Canada’s Coalition of the Putrid. All of them (immigration service groups, refugee advocates and ethnic groups such as Sikhs, Muslims and Mainland Chinese have betrayed Canada in order to gain financially. You are the latest in a list of immigration Ministers and members of Standing Committees to let them get away with it.
Your leader has not kept important promises he made when he campaigned. He said he would restore evidence-based government. As we’ve explained, it’s clear that the immigration policies he has supported are not evidence-based. In addition, you’ll have to admit that his announcement last winter that all refugees are welcome here was exceptionally foolish. And, at the start of his term, he declared that Canada was a post-national state. Scandalously, he meant that his first loyalty would be to recently-arrived ethnic groups, not to Canada’s majority population. We could go on. But let’s cut to the chase : Many Canadians believe he has betrayed Canada. They think that he chose you to be the Somalian acid that he would throw into the face of Canada. As for you, to whom Canada generously gave refugee status, no Canadian respects anyone who taunts them as you did with contemptuous statements such as “Increased intakes of millions of unnecessary immigrants are Canada’s NEW IMMIGRATION NORMAL”.
Your statements may make you feel good because unnecessary immigration has a good chance of making Canada look like a hell-hole such as Somalia. But sane Canadians don’t want to make Canada look like Somalia or India (particularly the Punjab) or Mainland China.
Remember three important matters : (a) Canada has at least 1 million unemployed, many of whom are now competing for jobs with unnecessary immigrants. (b) Canada also has tens of thousands of homeless. As winter arrives, why are they on our streets while new arrivals live in hotels or secure housing? (c) Canada has obligations to its aboriginal population who in addition to being part of the jobless and homeless, require other assistance. It will take years for Canada to correct these THREE major problems. In the meantime, instead of increasing immigration to well over 300,000 per year and worsening the lives of Canadians, you should have announced that Canada’s immigration intake would be reduced to nearly zero. Get your act together and do the right thing.

DISGRACEFUL GROSS NEGLIGENCE OF B.C. PREMIER AND B.C. GOVERNMENT
  Flyer circulated in Richmond by Immigration Watch Canada

B.C. Premier Christy Clark who sat back and did virtually nothing as Metro Vancouver house prices soared into the stratosphere is once more demonstrating that she is a Province-Wide “Disgrace”.

 

She has just proclaimed that a recent flyer circulated in Richmond is a “disgrace”.

 

Now, dear me, we like to be polite, but if anyone is to be summarily condemned for being a disgrace,  it is Clark. Over and over for several years , she was called on to intervene in Metro Vancouver’s astronomic housing price crisis, but she and her government as well as most other politicians of every party and at every level of government engaged in gross negligence.

 

They claimed they did not have enough information to act, but experts have shown they had ample information to do something. Instead,  Clark took the advice of the corrupt real estate industry and let the real estate market go into a frenzy. The negligence of her and the rest of the political class has created one of the most expensive housing markets in the world.

 

Clark’s government has introduced a 15% tax but the damage of their gross negligence will endure. This is a grossly unjust financial burden for hundreds of thousands of Metro Vancouver residents. Unless a major economic crash occurs, that burden will last far into the future both for renters now facing escalating rents and for home owners who are now saddled with huge mortgages.

 

Governments which commit such crimes against their own citizens on such a basic need as shelter are not just true “disgraces” . They are criminals and deserve to be treated as criminals.

 

It is hard to believe that Clark and all the other politicians had  not heard about the work of UBC Professor David Ley, whose book “Millionaire Migrants” showed that relentless immigration was the major cause of astronomic house prices.

 

It is also hard to believe that Clark was not aware of David Ley’s revelation that there was an extremely high statistical correlation amounting to cause and effect between immigration and Metros’ high housing prices. Clark could have used Ley’s research and complained to Ottawa that Canada did not need almost all of  the immigrants it was taking and that a dramatic reduction in immigration was necessary, but she did not.

 

It is also hard to believe that Clark was not aware of David Ley’s revelations  about a particular kind of immigration :  the Business Immigrant Programme. That programme had resulted in several hundred thousand Business Immigrants and their families coming to Metro Vancouver.

 

Ley also showed that these wealthy people, most of whom were Chinese, did not fulfill their obligation to start businesses here and employ Canadians. In fact, almost all of them and their families made it clear from the beginning that they were in Canada to sit back, plunder and parasitize Canada.

 

It’s now time for Canada to collect the huge amounts IN BACK TAXES that it is owed by these people or to take measures to remove them.

 

It is also hard to believe that Clark was unaware of the revelations of   UBC Professor Daniel Hiebert. He stated these people were declaring income at the level of some of the poorest areas in Canada. This meant that they were paying little if any Income Tax and undoubtedly hiding their offshore earnings.

 

In other words, these big-money off-shore migrants were plundering and parasitizing Canada’s education, health and other Canadian infrastructure. For the sake of grossly negligent Clark, her government and most other politicians, Hiebert prepared a map showing where many of these new arrivals were living. Almost all were residing in the most expensive areas of Metro Vancouver in very expensive houses, some of which could be described as mansions.

 

It is also hard to believe that Clark and her colleagues have not heard about the investigative work done by journalists such as Douglas Todd, Kathy Tomlinson, Sam Shepherd and others who have demonstrated that our politicians and Canada’s Gatekeepers (FINTRAC, the CRA and Canada’s Department of Immigration) have allowed hundreds of thousands of immigrants as well as offshore speculators to abuse Canada’s tax and immigration system in order to launder dirty money from places like China.

 

Former Richmond Mayor Greg Halsey-Brandt was the first of only a few politicians to state that Canada was being cheated. The vast majority of politicians have been silent and have done nothing. The cheaters have interpreted politicians’ silence to mean that politicians approve of tax evasion or are afraid of offending the cheaters and fearful of endangering votes from the cheaters.

 

Here are some big questions for Premier Gross Negligence Clark to answer:

 

Does she intend to ask the police investigate UBC Professors David Ley and Daniel Hiebert, and journalists like Douglas Todd, Kathy Tomlinson and Sam Shepherd for hate crimes? That is, for revealing facts that grossly negligent, politically correct politicians hate to hear? For their shining light on the foul if not brazenly criminal actions of Wealthy Chinese cheaters? For daring to point to the Asian elephant in the room?

 

It is time that we forced the cheaters to pay for their tax evasion, overturned their table and cast them and their political enablers in Victoria out of B.C.’s TEMPLE.

The Immigration Lobby — A Bold Vision of Hope?

The Immigration Lobby — A Bold Vision of Hope?
Inline image 1
 
 
 

By calling for an immigration intake increase to 450,000 per year in what has been, over 25 years, the world’s highest rate of immigration, Ottawa’s  Advisory Council on Economic Growth is but scraping the surface on what Canada can achieve in growth and influence. Their recommendation would free this country from its economic doldrums and project Canadian enlightenment and hope around the world.

Establishing an annual immigration rate of 1 ½% of the Canadian population creates a cycle of compound growth. Our population will double every 50 years elevating it to 36 billion (1000 times the current paltry level of 36 million) by the year 2500  vs waiting until  the year 2700 with the current rate of 1% (320,000 this year) !

Think of the dynamics of the economy created by adding 1000 Torontos, Vancouvers, Calgarys, and Montreals to Canada’s empty and lonely landscape !!   To maintain the Canadian connection with the great outdoors every family would have a cottage. This means 14 billion personal retreats spread over the limitless Canadian beauty. We would truly be the nation of nature !!

The use of cold fusion sea water reactors would allow never-ending power to be produced. Meanwhile, the vast oil sands could be counted on to provide liquid fuels for the 175 billion vehicle fleet of our multi car and recreation vehicle families forever.

The latest generation of perpetual motion machines would enable this infinite energy to be used for infinite uses.   Canada would become the leading consumer nation, eclipsing China and India combined many times over.

Yet Immigration Minister John McCallum appears to have backpedaled on this brilliant proposal saying it might be too ambitious.   What bold initiative ever lacked ambition? For the nation of hope, “too ambitious” is an oxymoron. Ambition and hope are the twin pillars of progress and enlightenment.

This bold and hopeful economy would guarantee unlimited market potential with housing prices soaring to the millions of dollars per sq foot and higher.   Several million people can earn immense wealth in trading properties and millions more could have their mega yacht come in with just a few years of stock derivatives investing.

Those who were income challenged (one should no longer use the word “poor” or “lazy”) like doctors, engineers and those engaged in the tawdry trades of producing food and real goods and services, could be given courses in financial management to allow them to participate in this galaxy of money making opportunities. Keyboards truly are the wealth producers of mans’ dreams.

Of course, there are practical limitations. 36 billion people is 5 times the current population of Earth which means that not only must the planets population have to grow but everyone has to move to Canada.

Sacrifices?

There would have to be a few. But paving over farmland is a natural process for an informed growth economy since agricultural produce accounts for a very small amount of the economy compared to land development. Once all of our farmland has been upgraded into money producing investment plays, the concept of agriculture will be just a quaint memory.

Problems? Yes. But these have been foreseen by the enlightened Advisory Council. They predict a skills shortage for 2500 due to indolent Canadian youth who live in their parents closets inside their grandparents bedrooms in their great grandparents basements. The shortage will be alleviated by that year’s intake of 540 million (1.5% of 36 billion) 24/7 working, low wage craving, compliant immigrants.

Other countries, misguided by pessimists and naysayers pushing their quality of life and social cohesiveness agenda, will be left in the dust of their own global warming paranoia by our economic growth.

In just several short centuries of compound 1 ½% immigration, Canada will stand astride the globe like a colossus with our vision on the stars above us. A mere 1000 years after the first Europeans landed in this deserted cornucopia of unending natural resources, Canada will have achieved endless progress. There are no limits once the politics of growth-forever are embraced and applied !!

Think of it! Hope never ending, the solution to all of mans’ problems.

Too ambitious?? Humbug!

Former Immigration Minister Seeks Tory Leadership on Boost Immigration Platform

Former Immigration Minister Seeks Tory Leadership on Boost Immigration Platform

Economics or cultural replacement matter little to a voice of Canada’s political establishment; they just can’t replace the  European founding/settler people of this country fast enough”.

“Former immigration minister Chris Alexander has confirmed he plans to run for the Conservative leadership and that a key plank of his campaign will be a proposal to sharply increase the intake of immigrants to 400,000 every year, including 40,000 refugees, because ‘this is a core value for me and for Canada.’

Although not yet officially a candidate, the McGill and Oxford graduate said the paperwork would be completed within the next week or two. After that he intends to undertake a cross-country journey by car to the West Coast, ‘stopping in every place we can where we have an invitation, to speak with groups, large and small, of Conservatives and potential Conservatives’.” (National Post, October 12, 2016)

Now, there’s a novel Tory platform to confront the Liberals — massively boost immigration, almost all of it from the Third World,  to hasten the replacement of the European founding/settler people.. But, come to think of it, that’d exacty what Canada’s unhealthy looking and sallow Immigration Minister John McCallum is hinting at, after consulting with “stakeholders” ( that is, the immigration lobby — immigration lawyers, ESL teachers, hangers on in the $1-billion annual immigration settlement industry.) The Liberals are hinting at a big boost in immigration and refugees. Yet, the polls, as opposed to the self interested lobbies that have the minister’s ear, show Canadians oppose an immigration increase, opposed the admission of so many Syrians last year, and support the idea of screening out immigrants with “anti-Canadian” attitudes (arrangement marriage,  honour killings, etc.) Indeed, a Forum Research Poll for the Toronto Star found:  ” Two-thirds of Canadians want prospective immigrants to be screened for “anti-Canadian” values, a new poll reveals, lending support to an idea that is stirring controversy in political circles. Conservative MP Kellie Leitch, a candidate in her party’s leadership contest, has floated the idea of screening newcomers for their attitudes on intolerance toward other religions, cultures and sexual orientations and reluctance to embrace Canadian freedoms.” (Toronto Star, September 10, 2016)

Alexander, 48, was Canada’as Ambassador to Afghanistan before he entered politics. He lost his seat in the last election.

Still, he insists: “‘I think we are still a very pro-immigration party.’ He reasoned that Canada needs more immigrants to replace retiring baby boomers and because immigrants are essential if the economy is to grow.”

This is elite nonsense. With 7 per cent official unemployment — real figures likely twice that — just what are the present cohort of about 305,000 immigrants, let alone a planned boost to 400,000, going to do: they will either get a job and take it from a Canadian (Canada loses) or they will not get a job and have to be supported on welfare and in public housing (again, Canada loses). Far from “growing the economy”, except that of the immigration industry, immigration is a huge drain on the economy. Professor Herb Grubel in a 2011 study for the Fraser Institute pointed out that the cohort of immigrants,. mostly from the Third World, from 1980 on cost taxpayers well over $25-billion annually. That’s the tax benefits they consume less the taxes they pay — a net deficit. Massive immigration to “replace retiring baby boomers”? Why not wait until there actually is full employment or a labour shortage. Why import people for jobs that may never be there.

Whatever else establishment Alexander may be he is no conservative in economics, but, apparently, one of his “core values” — how we hate this cliche — is the Speeded up replacemeNt of his OWN people. In a saner age he would be dismissed as a comical loon!

Superficially, a coast to coast motor tour to listen to the people sounds like a good populist idea. However, when he actually was in power, Alexander had no time for immigration critics. His staff pleaded that he was very busy. In the Spring and Summer of 2014, Immigration Watch Canada repeatedly contacted him for a meeting to discuss immigration levels. He was always too busy. Finally, on August 25, IWC and the Canada First Immigration Reform Committee held a protest outside his constituency office. A horde of Durham Region Police showed up to protect the minister’s staff and the office abruptly closed.

However, Mr. Alexander had plenty of time for non-Whites.  An Immigration Watch Canada statement from the time noted:

HERE ARE SOME POINTS TO NOTE ABOUT OUR PROTEST :
 
- About 8 to10 members of the Durham Police showed up about an hour before our protest began and ordered us to remain about 100 feet away from the front door of Immigration Minister Chris Alexander’s office.  According to the police, Alexander’s office sat on “private property”. To offset that disadvantage, we used a high powered megaphone to broadcast our message to any office staff who were listening. We also used a large banner which was visible to any staff member who was  watching our protest. 

- While walking to Alexander’s office along the street, we displayed our 10-foot long banner which had the message “SAVE CANADA. CUT IMMIGRATION” . Many cars passed by and drivers both honked their horns in approval and gave us a “Thumbs Up”  in support of our message. 
 
- Someone had alerted Alexander’s office staff about our peaceful protest. Staff had locked the front door of Alexander’s office.  While assembled, we noticed several constituents trying to get into Alexander’s office but they could not open the door.  
 
- For at least  6 months prior to our protest, we had requested Alexander’s Department of Citizenship and Immigration to provide evidence which would justify Canada’s immigration intake, an average of  250,000 per year for the past 23 years. Alexander’s office staff claimed such evidence existed, and that they would send it. However, they have never sent us anything. 
 
- In July, Immigration Watch Canada sent registered letters to both  Alexander’s constituency office in Ajax and his office in Ottawa. In the letters, we requested an August meeting with him to discuss evidence he had for Canada’s immigration intake. About a week later, we received a call from a member of his staff who stated that Alexander would be busy ‘travelling in August” and therefore would not be available. We told  the staff member that his response sounded like a very lame excuse. 
 
- The numerous postings below that Alexander has made on his Facebook Page clearly show that Alexander’s excuse was indeed “lame”. The “travelling” Alexander did in August and July was to meet many ethnic groups in his area and in other areas nearby. To us, this clearly demonstrates that Alexander believes that the immigration-related views of themajority of Canadians don’t count and that in his view, ethnic groups and the immigration lobby are the only ‘stakeholders” in Canada’s immigration process. To put it mildly,  Alexander and other government representatives need a severe jolt to wake them up. 
   
- According to Chris Alexander’s social networking pages, here is what his “travelling” consisted of in August and July  : (NOTE: The dates you see are the dates on which he posted these items to his Facebook Page. A number of events posted on July 14 probably happened earlier. )

This month I visited New Delhi and Mumbai to promote the economic and cultural ties between Canada and India. Canada and India enjoy a strong bilateral relationship that is based on shared democratic values and mutual economic interests. (11 photos) Canada’s Citizenship and Immigration Minister Chris Alexander announces the launch of the CAN+ program, which will result in more efficient processing for Indian visitors coming to Canada: http://bit.ly/1kztMTY  CAN+ is open to Indian nationals who have travelled to Canada or the United States of America within the last 10 years. 

August 13: “Last night I had the pleasure of attending India’s National Day Gala 2014 in Brampton with Prime Minister Stephen Harper+ many more friends and colleagues. Wonderful evening spent with Indo-Canadians who have made valuable contributions to our great  country. Thanks to The Honorable Senator Asha Seth for a great event!”
 
August 14: “Had the pleasure of hosting a productive roundtable with Peter Braid, Member of Parliament and MP Stephen Woodworth at Communitech this afternoon. Engaging conversation with an impressive group of people with the experience and expertise we can tap into to ensure economic growth, innovation, and long-term prosperity in Canada. – “The Start-Up Visa Program is one of our newest and most exciting programs which targets immigrant entrepreneurs with the potential to build innovative companies here in Canada, creating jobs for Canadians.”  
 
August 20: “We’re only halfway through 2014, and I’m honoured to report we’ve welcomed the 150,000th newest Canadian citizen of this year. This is compared to 129,000 in all of 2013! We’ve been able to welcome more new citizens because of the important changes we’ve made to citizenship processing. This is an indication that our government’s changes to the citizenship system are working.”  
 
August 21: “On August 17th, I had the pleasure of attending ICCAD’s 9th Annual Festival of India’s Heritage & Flag Raising Ceremony in Pickering. Held in celebration of India’s Independence Day, the Festival gives Durham region residents the opportunity to learn about India’s rich cultural heritage.” 
 
August 22: “This past week, I had the pleasure of meeting with the Women’s Activity Group at the Ajax Welcome Centre. These dynamic women meet to practice their English, become involved in the creation of art, all whilst helping each other through life’s obstacles. The centre’s volunteers, a vital part of this activity, share their knowledge and experience with the newcomers helping them to network in the local community.”

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
 
HERE IS WHAT WE DID AT THE SAME TIME AND HERE IS THE RESPONSE WE RECEIVED  :

-A large number of people called Alexander’s office both while we were assembled and after the assembly concluded.  They requested any Government of Canada report which provided (1) credible evidence that justified mass immigration of 250,000 per year and (2) evidence that this intake is benefiting Canadian society. They also stated that  they stood in support of the peaceful assembly hosted by Immigration Watch Canada ! 

The staff in Alexander’s office did not pick up the phone to answer most calls. Instead, many callers were transferred to Alexander’s voice mail. This treatment of legitimate complaints by thoughtful Canadians is typical of the hypocrisy in Canada’s immigration system : Immigration Ministers and many of Canada’s politicians continue to grovel at the feet of immigrant voters. Yet they treat Canada’s majority population with contempt.  

In the past, Alexander’s office staff have been anything but co-operative and knowledgeable about the immigration issue. Instead of working diligently to provide callers with requested information and noting their concerns on current immigration policies, they simply told callers such things as “We are a local MP’s office and have nothing to do with immigration.” or “We do not talk about immigration-related issues here !!! Your complaints need to be directed to CIC. You can also email them to the Immigration Minister’s office in Ottawa”.
 
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
 
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

HERE IS OUR CONCLUSION :
 
As you can see, Alexander, his government and Parliament continue to demonstrate that they have no intention of protecting Canadians and Canada. They could be introducing measures to dramatically cut immigration, but Alexander’s Conservative and all other parties continue to grovel for their share of the immigrant vote. 
 

Advice to McCallum : It’s Time to Go Back To School

Advice to McCallum : It’s Time to Go Back To School

OUR ADVICE TO IMMIGRATION MINISTER MCCALLUM : IT’S TIME TO GO BACK TO SCHOOL AND STAY AWAY FROM THE IMMIGRATION LOBBY

 

Immigration Minister John McCallum’s has been musing that he will increase Canada’s immigration intake well above 300,000 for 2017. The two reasons he gives are clearly not evidence-based and should be thrown into the nearest recycling bin.

 

REASON A : He says Canada needs immigrants because it has an aging population. He does not seem to know that the Mulroney government asked Canada’s Department of Health and Welfare to study this issue. It was to determine whether Canada should use immigration to solve problems that might arise because of Canada’s aging population (particularly a drain on Canada’s finances). Health and Welfare Department’s long study around 1990  concluded that Canada would be better off  to use its own population (particularly its females who were not in the workforce and its unemployed older males) to solve such issues. Doing this would stabilize the number of people that each worker supported at 1.9 (Canada’s Dependency Ratio). Increasing immigration to as high as 600,000 per year would have little effect on reducing the percentage of older people in Canada’s population.

 

McCallum also does not seem to know that a CD Howe Institute study in 2006 on the same issue concluded that “… no conceivable amount of immigration, with an age profile such as Canada currently experiences, can significantly affect the coming shift in the ratio of older to working age Canadians.” It predicted that Canada’s percentage of older Canadians (now around 17%) would rise to 46% of the population by 2050. It looked at three strategies : (1) reducing the percentage of older people through high immigration (2) stabilizing the percentage of older people so that a much smaller percentage of Canada’s population would be 65+ in 2050. One of the very negative results of using high immigration would be that Canada’s population would rise to 169 million by 2050 and its yearly intake would be 7 million !!! Such consequences would clearly negate any benefits.

 

The third strategy it proposed was to increase Canada’s retirement age to 70. This technique did not use immigration to achieve its end, and would be superior to the other two strategies. By 2050, the maximum percentage of aged Canadians potentially dependent on government programmes would be about 33%, not 50%. Researchers pointed out that simultaneous policies aimed at encouraging work and saving were also important. Saving, in particular, would decrease reliance on public coffers. The Harper government did suggest raising the retirement age. This proposal has to be re-visited

 

REASON B : McCallum is also saying that Canada has a labour shortage and that Canada needs much higher immigration. He claims to have consulted with about 35 groups across the country. Recently, in Alberta where about 100,000 people have lost their jobs in the past two years because of the downturn in Alberta’s oil industry, he stated that Albertans were telling him that Alberta needed more immigrants. The question that most Albertans are asking is this : Who is McCallum listening to? Other Canadians are asking the same thing.  It seems that the only people he is talking to are members of the immigration lobby (lawyers, consultants, advocates and ethnic groups like the Sikhs, Muslims and Chinese). In fact, he has been proposing that Canada accept many more Chinese students and workers. To accomplish that, he wants to dramatically increase the number of Canada’s visa-granting centres in China. Anyone who has seen what unnecessary immigration has done to Canada in the past 25 years must be cringing or  saying that they would prefer an Ebola epidemic.

 

And they are not the only ones !!! Two of Canada’s big banks (Toronto Dominion and the Bank of Montreal) did their own studies three years ago on whether Canada had a labour shortage. Both concluded that it did not. The point is that the banks are precisely the ones we would expect to be cheer-leading higher immigration. But the TD Bank stated “With data in hand, we debunk the notion that Canada is facing an imminent skills crisis.”  Overall, both said that whatever skill shortages existed, were isolated and likely no greater than existed a decade ago. In addition, the Parliamentary Budget Officer in 2014 reported that there was little evidence to suggest that a labour shortage exists.

 

Clearly, Canada’s Immigration Minister John McCallum has not done his homework and he has no evidence to support his proposal to greatly increase Canada’s immigration intake. Our advice : Raising immigration intake to 300,000 for 2016 was already a bad mistake. Don’t make another.

 

IT’S TIME TO GO BACK TO SCHOOL AND STAY AWAY FROM THE IMMIGRATION LOBBY.   

For sensible immigration policies for the 21st century.

Interview With Dan Murray, Founder of Immigration Watch Canada

Interview With Dan Murray, Founder of Immigration Watch Canada

Suppressing House Price Truth = Cheering Destruction

Posted on by

Suppressing House Price Truth = Cheering Destruction

With some exceptions, Canada’s media continues to suppress the real causes of astronomically-high housing prices in Metro Vancouver and Toronto. And Canada’s new government seems to be imbibing what most of the media say. It has just announced that it will increase Canada’s immigration intake to over 300,000 per year, the highest in 100 years—-thus inflicting even more demand for housing and more financial damage on millions of Canadians.

Inline image 1

One of the latest shameless efforts to suppress the truth happened in a CBC Radio interview done by CBC Early Edition Host Rick Cluff with Jia Wang, Deputy Director of the China Institute at the University of Alberta. In response to an allegation that Mainland Chinese were the cause of Metro Vancouver’s high housing prices, Ms. Wang said there was no hard evidence to support the charge.

There is a major flaw in asking such a question to someone like Ms. Wang or anyone else that is a Mainland China promoter.

These people are here to defend Mainland China and to portray Mainland China as a benevolent actor in the world’s affairs. She and others know that, with the collusion of business interests in the West, Mainland China has largely de-industrialized the West and has become a colonial power. She and others will do all they can to distort reality in order to further China’s interests. And naive, quisling Canadian governments are eager to help them. The evidence : According to the China Institute’s web site, “The China Institute at the University of Alberta (CIUA) was established (mostly for educational reasons) in the fall of 2005 with an endowment fund of C$37 million from the Government of Alberta.”

Informed Canadians, but obviously not those at our CBC, know the answer they will get (from a China promoter) to a question about China’s intentions. It is like asking a coyote in front of a chicken coop whether he intends to break into the coop. The coyote will lie. So will countries like China who are seeking to expand their control of Canada and the Canadian fools, particularly those at the CBC, who will believe them. For details, see http://www.china.ualberta.ca/

Here is one of the most recent realities that our new government and the CBC choose to ignore :

According to a March 14 column by Douglas Todd in The Vancouver Sun, UBC Geography Professor Daniel Hiebert has concluded that immigrants have a major impact on fast-rising house prices in Metro Vancouver and Toronto.

The following is a shortened version of that column :

“There is definitely an impact on the housing market,” said Hiebert, who believes a key factor behind the phenomenon is many new immigrants arrive in Canada’s major cities with a great deal of money.

The veteran researcher’s exclusive cross-tabulation of housing and immigration data, including between 2006 and 2011, found on average that 53 per cent of immigrants to Metro Vancouver during those five years became homeowners in that period.

“They bought roughly 100,000 homes in Metro Vancouver during the five years, ranging from suburban condos to ritzy mansions.”

‘“New Chinese immigrants were at the top of all this. Kind of incredibly, their rate of home ownership was 73 per cent,” said Hiebert.

Hiebert, who has published major studies on immigration, housing and ethnic enclaves, believes immigrants are seriously affecting housing affordability at both the high and low ends of the market.

“I think it would be a pretty big stretch for someone to arrive tabula rasa (without a lot of money) in a housing market like Vancouver and within five years be able to purchase a home in this place. That would be really difficult to expect,’ says UBC geographer Dan Hiebert.

“Prices of Metro Vancouver’s expensive properties, those in the $4-million-plus range, are being dramatically affected by immigrants”, Hiebert said. ‘But, at the low end, so are costs for new Syrian refugee families, who need government subsidies to afford a basic place to live.”

While some of the new immigrants who end up classified as homeowners might be among the relatively few who arrive on a family reunification program and join an existing household, Hiebert believes most would be buying homes by transferring large financial resources into Canada.

Hiebert’s findings support the conclusions of UBC’s David Ley, holder of the Canada Research Chair in geography and author of Millionaire Migrants. The Oxford-educated professor has found an “unusually decisive” correlation between high immigration to Metro Vancouver and high home prices.

The overall rate of home ownership among all residents in Metro Vancouver is almost 70 per cent ­ out of a total 1.5 million households, according to Hiebert’s work.

“Based solely on visible-minority status, and disregarding immigrant status, ethnic Chinese have the highest ratio of home ownership, followed by South Asians,” Hiebert said.

“The percentage of home ownership among Chinese is 81 per cent, accounting for 290,000 Metro households, Hiebert said.

“And South Asians are second at 75 per cent, or roughly 160,000 households.” — www.ImmigrationWatchCanada.org

Immigration Reformers Protesting Temporary Foreign Workers Programme Threatened by Anti-Racists

Immigration Reformers Protesting Temporary Foreign Workers Programme Threatened by Anti-Racists
TORONTO. March 29, 2015. The long red on white banner proclaimed their message — “Canadian Workers Come First” — as some three dozen immigration reformers gathered this afternoon to protest a demonstration by an immigrant group pushing for temporary foreign workers to be allowed to stay indefinitely.
 
A group called the  Migrant Workers Alliance for Change staged the protest against Temporary Foreign Workers and Live-In Caregivers being barred from working in the country for more than four years. This group also believes that all TFW’s and Live-ins should remain here permanently.
 
The 60 or so members of this group were peaceful as they gathered outside the offices of Citizenship and Immigration Canada offices at 55 St. Clair Avenue, East.

Some of these “anti-racists” tried to block the “Canadian Workers Come First Banner”. One particularly strident female in a long scarf charged at one of the women in the Immigration Watch Canada ranks and had to be deterred.

Police sought to maintain order and escorted several IWC members to their cars when they were followed and threatened by the “anti-racists”.

Close to 1,000 flyers were distributed in the area calling for an end to the TFW Programme which floods Canada with 500,000 foreigners at a time when unemployment tops 1.5-million and another 900,000 Canadians, according to Statistics Canada,  are involuntarily locked into part-time jobs.

“There is no skills or labour shortage,” IWC organizer Ryan explained,”just a cheap labour shortage.” It’s time to let Canadians have jobs instead of catering to greedy employers seeking to suppress wages.

Immigration Reformers Link GTA Traffic Gridlock to Massive Immigration

Immigration Reformers Link GTA Traffic Gridlock to Massive Immigration

PORT CREDIT, January 17, 2015. A dozen immigration reformers braved cold winds this afternoon to call for major cuts to immigration to help ease traffic gridlock in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). Members of Immigration Watch Canada and the Canada First Immigration Reform Committee displayed a banner “Fight Gridlock — Cut Immigration” on the pedestrian walkway above the Queen Elizabeth Way inbound to Toronto. Heavy traffic slowed right down. Many motorists honked or gave the thumbs up of approval. Some took pictures on their cellphones and tweeted or texted to their friends. One sorehead gave the group the finger.
 
The immigration reformers also leafletted several nearby parking lots and have vowed further protests
 
Traffic gridlock, GTA voters say, is their number one issue.
 
A statement circulated by the protesters proclaimed:
 
“Traffic gridlock, GTA voters say, is their number one issue.
 
Little surprise. The GTA has longer commute times than Los Angeles or Atlanta. Traffic gridlock costs us big time. Economists say it costs Ontario’s economy $7-billion a year! To say nothing of the wear and tear on nerves to say nothing of the wear on your car. How many times do you have to hit the brake when creeping along the QEW or the 401?
 
Every year, rush hour starts a little earlier. We’re now in gridlock at 3:00. How many more years will it be before it is 2:00!
 
Traffic gridlock is the result of Canada’s irresponsible immigration policies. Each year 125,000 immigrants flock to the GTA. Yet, our infrastructure — with the exception of the 407 —  has hardly changed since 1970! What worked well 40 years ago is choking and doesn’t work today.
 
To add the roads and transit needed to alleviate traffic gridlock will take years and billions of dollars.
 
In the meantime, if the federal government keeps the immigration doors wide open and keeps flooding the GTA, even if we build new roads, the gridlock will continue.
 
This is not anti-immigrant. It is common sense.
 
Traffic gridlock is one of the many hidden costs of immigration. Anyway, with 6.3% unemployment — 1.5-million Canadians unemployed, another 900,000 involuntarily in part-time jobs — there is just no economic justification for immigration.
 
SPEAK UP: Call or write your MP, your councillor and mayor.
 
Insist that they represent you and work to FIGHT TRAFFIC GRIDLOCK by CUTTING IMMIGRATION.
