Who is an immigrant? According to Webster’s New World Thesaurus: “it is a newcomer, a naturalized citizen and adoptive citizen.”
Salim Mansur is a professor of political science at the University of Western Ontario. He is also a highly respected journalist for the Sun chain of Newspapers. In 2011, he published the sensational smash hit “Delectable Lie: a liberal repudiation of multiculturalism”. In the book, this term is more accurately and cleverly defined.
“In the normal or traditional sense an immigrant is an individual departing his native country to settle permanently in an intended host country, and adopt the customs and values of the host country while giving it his full loyalty.”
There are three myths that continue to confuse and deceive Canadians concerning identity, immigrants and immigration. The first is that Canada’s identity is based on immigration and multiculturalism. The second is that massive immigration compensates for anemic birthrates in order to pay for the pensions of Canadian seniors and to fill a supposed labor shortage. The last is that massive amounts of immigration boost Canada’s economic success and security. These are myths perpetuated over and over again by lawyers, politicians and religious groups. The cold hard facts of reality will easily refute such chicanery. At the end of the day, Canadians and immigrants deserve an accountable, healthy and responsible immigration system that benefits Canada’s own economic self-interests.
Canada has a nearly eighty percent Christian population (refer to: Canada Year Book 2009). That’s why Christmas is celebrated with such enthusiasm. Canada is therefore a Christian nation. Canadian culture is English and French. It’s the Magna Carta laws acquired from Great Britain, including human rights and free speech. It’s also maple syrup, hockey, beer and the northern lights. It’s the desire to embrace modern values that Canadians from coast to coast share with one another. Canadians follow the rule of law, enforced by the courts and passionately cherish the equality between men and women.
Foreign-born citizens comprise approximately seventeen per cent out of a total population of thirty four million people. It’s about 5.8 million foreign-born citizens out of 34 million Canadians. Americans love guns, football, beer and are devout churchgoers every Sunday. The United States has a foreign born population of ten per cent or about thirty million people out of a total population of three hundred and seven million people. India is eighty percent Hindu and cricket is the national sport. The best kick boxers are from Thailand, a majority Buddhist peoples. The only place that might come close to the reality of an immigrant or multicultural state is the United Arab Emirates. The reality is shown through the investigations of Pepe Escobar of the Asian Times. He stated:
“At the base is the average construction worker, inevitably South Asian, either Pakistani or Indian. He’s invisible. But he and his fellow workers now comprise an astonishing 80% of the UAE’s population. Human rights Watch has repeatedly complained that this archetypal construction worker is never treated like a human being. But the UAE power structure couldn’t care less. He works a minimum of 12 hours a day in [temperatures of] up to 50 degrees, with a half-hour break, six days a week, and earns no more than $150 a month. He lives in a camp, four and sometimes as many as 12 to a 15 – square meter room lost in the dreary al – Quoz industrial suburb….He has no rights. Trade unions are banned. If he speaks up, he’s instantly deported.”
Since these workers aren’t even given citizenship rights, the UAE by definition, is also not an immigrant country. However, it does appear to be based solely on brutal repression and human slavery. Opinion polls reflected the reality that most people felt towards newcomers. Victor Malarek was an award winning senior reporter for the Globe and Mail Newspaper. In 1987, he released “HAVEN’S GATE: Canada’s Immigration Fiasco”.
Victor discovered that the wishes of Canadians were at complete odds with the political elite in charge of Canada’s immigration policies. How did ordinary Canadians truly feel about immigration, assimilation and other complex issues?
“ A study of attitudes done by Policy Concepts Inc. for Employment and Immigration Canada released in November 1985, uncovered a disturbing level of racism among Canadians – primarily in Montreal, Edmonton and Vancouver – based on fear that Canada’s predominantly Anglo – Saxon and European culture could be swallowed up by increased immigration from Third World countries. Over all, people surveyed believed that immigrants add to unemployment, compete with Canadians for educational and employment opportunities, and add to their tax burden if they are unable to find work.
The study also found that there was a general feeling among the respondents that new Canadians do not make sufficient efforts to assimilate. Visible groups such as Chinese, Indo – Pakistanis and black were singled out repeatedly. The respondents said they would like future immigrants to Canada to be “monied, well – trained, well – educated and ready to assimilate.” They saw present immigrants as poor, mostly from Third World countries, uneducated, untrained, reluctant to assimilate, prone to congregate in urban ghettos and a potential tax burden. “This immigrant is seen as posing a threat to our economy and our social fabric and a quality of life Canadians are reluctant to relinquish,” the study stated, adding that there was serious apprehension among respondents of Anglo – Saxon and northern European background” about becoming a minority group in one’s own country.” Most respondents also favored strict immigration controls. Some said they would like to see immigration stopped completely “until we get our house in order” and take care of those already here.
During the next two years, thousands of bogus queue jumpers from Portugal, Turkeyand a few hundred from Brazilforced the government to place Visa restrictions on these countries. However, no further action was taken. The immigrant vote was not to be disturbed; it was to be fought over. It was to be used as an ethnic vote bank, to be nurtured and encouraged no matter what the economic circumstances. Even if there weren’t enough jobs, mass immigration was to be relentlessly continued. Two years later, not much had changed. Canadians knew something was seriously wrong.
“ It comes as no surprise that a public opinion poll carried out by Environics Research Group Ltd. for the Globe and Mail in early March 1987, found that 65 per cent of Canadians questioned felt there was too much immigration into Canada. Much of the negative sentiment by Canadians toward immigrants can be directly traced to their lack of trust in the government’s ability to handle immigration.”
“ In a public opinion poll published in the Toronto Star on June 3, 1987, 83 per cent of Canadians questioned said they supported a bill introduced in the House of Commons a month earlier that would make it far more difficult for people claiming refugee status to enter the country.”
As Canadians are being forced to share the public space with new Canadians, it became apparent that the most important thing to bring along wasn’t a book, but an I Pod or walk man. Canadians found it a major headache to have to listen to Arabic, Hindi, Urdu, Punjabi, Tagalong, Mandarin, German, Russian and Spanish. On September 11, 1998, the Vancouver Sun ran a report on a poll that Angus Reid Associates had done earlier in the year for Madame Robillard’s department. The results were stunning but fair, accurate yet revealing.
“The poll…indicates an overwhelming number of Canadians (76 per cent) want newcomers to be able to speak either French or English when they arrive and want immigration officials to institute tough measures to ensure that immigrants are healthy and have no criminal record.”
It’s possible that Prime Minister Stephen Harper might be seen as a red neck Canadian dictator. However, at least he listened to our American neighbors south of the border. The Liberals never even tried to meet the Yanks half way. They shunned their noses up at them. Part of being a strong leader is the ability to listen to critics and adjust accordingly. On the eve of the Tory majority, Harper finally got together with Barack Obama and signed that border agreement. There was sufficient evidence that Canadians would have given their blessings much sooner.
“An Ipsos – Reid poll released in October 2001 found that more than 80 percent in favour of a joint North American security perimeter and a harmonized immigration and refugee system.”
After September 11th, most Canadians understood that we are in a clash of civilizations. The assault on western civilization had started. The Americans considered themselves to be in a state of war and Canada should be as supportive as possible. Canadians and Americans share common bonds and values. The people arriving on our shores must be here to add to our cultural and economic prosperity and not to wage holy jihad against infidels. There are limits to how welcoming Canadians can be. This brings us to the second myth; that massive immigration compensates for anemic birthrates and a labor shortage.
The government is always talking about falling birthrates and a looming labor shortage. This rhetoric is constantly reinforced by government agencies.
“Canada’s post recession economy demands a high level of legal immigration to keep our work force strong,” stated Immigration Minister Jason Kenney.
“[In the West] unpopular ideas can be silenced, and inconvenient facts kept dark, without any need for an official ban.”
– George Orwell, UK writer
In a Globe and Mail article, published on Monday September 5th, 2011, it was noted that Canada has a healthy and strong labor force. On page 3 of the report on business, there were 18.7 million people in Canada’s labor force. These are Canadians between the working ages of 19 and 64. There are 34 million people in Canada, so that’s 50% of our entire population. Out of this, there are 14 million full time workers and 3.3 million people working part time. It also noted the 1.4 million Canadians out of work.
Jason Kenney’s “post recession views” might be referring to 2015 (every economist from CIBC to BMO are predicting economic contractions for the next few years). The European Union has collapsed (Spain, Portugal and Greece are broke and need bailouts), the U.S economy has collapsed (the entire banking system and real estate market has collapsed).
Since 80% of all Canadian exports go to the United States, there will most certainly be a contraction in jobs for the next few years. Companies will keep on cutting costs by gutting workers until a profit it made. It’s the same thinking that went into business management back in 1911 and it’s still true in 2011. In the meantime, Canadians are continually forced to keep on listening to the barrage of colorful commentary from people that are about as smart as a bag of hammers. è
“Instead of continuing the destructive trend of bringing in 178,487 temporary workers to Canada each year, the Conservatives should allow for even more families to join their loved ones in Canada,” said NDP immigration critic Olivia Chow.
“I think we can look at getting over the 250,000 mark and up to approaching 1% of our population if not going beyond that,” stated Liberal immigration critic Justin Trudeau.
“CIC has previously stated that 100% of Canada’s labor needs will have to be met by Immigrants by 2016. We need to be making our system more streamlined and we need to be welcoming more immigrants, not fewer.” said NDP Immigration Critic Don Davies for Vancouver Kingsway. (CIC = Citizenship & Immigration Canada).
“With their strong work ethic and entrepreneurship, they create wealth and increase demand for housing and services, which creates jobs. They trigger a virtuous economic cycle,” wrote Haroon Siddiqui in The Toronto Star.
“We need more immigration, we need better family reunification. The [Tory] government has gone completely wrong on family reunification. We need to increase family reunification visas. The best way to do immigration is family reunification,” stated Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff while attending the annual Khalsa Day parade.
”We’re becoming ever more dependent on immigration in order to grow this economy. Regardless of your political stripe, we need to ensure that we are seen to be attractive place for immigrants and very efficient in providing services [to newcomers so that they become contributing members of the society and our economy,” stated Ontario Premier Dalton Mc Guinty in an interview at Queen’s Park with The Generation Next Newspaper.
On August 25TH, 2011 there was an article the South Asian Generation Next Newspaper entitled “About one person in three in the labor force foreign born by 2031. It stated the following:
“In 1981, there was roughly six persons in the labor force for each retiree. By 2031, or 50 years later, this ratio is projected to decline to less than three to one, according to all five scenarios. The ratio is projected to decline in every province.”
Chantal Desloges is an immigration lawyer based out of Toronto. She wrote an article under “Society” entitled: “Do we really want the best and the brightest?” in the South Asian Generation Next Newspaper. Here’s some of what was written:
“There is no question that Canada always has and will continue to need immigrants. Demographics and labor markets require it. We have massive natural resources and the economy is quite dependent on natural resource extraction, which depends heavily on labor. Our fertility rate is 1.58 children per woman, which means a declining birth rate. Couple that with an aging demographic and you can see the problem.”
Armine Yalnizyan is a senior economist with the Canadian Center for Policy Alternatives. On Friday February 18TH 2011, she published “Canada’s immigration policy: who is on the guest list?” in the Globe and Mail’s blog section “Economy Lab”.
Here’s some of what she had to say:
“Labor market shortages will grow in the coming years, as boomers retire in record numbers. How we bring people into Canada to meet our labor market needs will shape the evolving nature of Canada itself.”
These types of articles on demographic projections of doomsday labor shortages are suspicious. Newspapers published by big businesses are hell bent on maximizing profits at all costs. Why were the current labor force (18.7 million workers/G&M) and the unemployment numbers (1.4 million/Statistics Canada) conveniently left out of the analysis? When a forecast for 180,000 jobs is made for 2012, does it make any sense for Harper’s Conservative government to bring in 240-265K immigrants?
By having multiple newspapers publish and republish the same informational “scenarios” over and over again, the brainwashing of the public is thus accomplished. Trying to debate immigration issues with average folks and out come accusations of racism and xenophobia. Thanks to the smart work of Canada’s authors, Canadians can become well informed again. It just takes a little investigation and curiosity.
“If liberty means anything at all, it is the freedom to tell people what they do not want to hear.”
There are many words that can be used to describe such “educational campaigns”: brainwashing, deceiving, fascism, fooling, indoctrinating, lying, misinforming and tricking. There are widespread fears among the population that Canada Pension Plan might just go bust. The scenario is as terrifying to most Canadians as a Freddy Kruger movie but just how true are these concerns?
“Under Frequently Asked Questions to the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board”, an interesting question asked was:
Should Canadians be concerned about their CPP pensions?
In November 2010; The Chief Actuary of Canada asserted that the Canada Pension Plan at the current contribution rate of 9.9% is sustainable at current levels for the next 75 years. Therefore, The Canada Pension Plan is in good shape until around 2085.
It will be 2020 before even a small portion of the CPP Fund’s investment income will even be needed to help pay for current payouts. The Chief also stated that the CPP Fund would grow by almost 80% in the next 10 years from $153.2 billion to about $275 billion around 2021. The government should raise the pension payouts to seniors by 20% each year. Seniors constitute a floor of consumption for the entire economy. The more money they have, the more they will likely spend. This money will be automatically be funneled back into the Canadian economy.
In the same: “Under Frequently Asked Questions to the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board”, another interesting question asked was:
Why don’t you invest only in Canada to create economic growth and jobs?
The answer given is bizarre and self-serving. Here it is è
“Our mandate is to help sustain the future pensions of 17 million CPP contributors and beneficiaries and by maximizing returns without undue risk of loss.”
This makes absolutely no sense at all. Between 1981 and 2005, the number of seniors inCanadaincreased from 2.4 million to 4.2 million. That’s not even half of 17 million. The Social Science Federation of Canada, using funds provided by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada helped fund Harry Weitz’s investigative research into the pension field.
In 1992, Harry released “THE PENSION PROMISE: THE PAST AND FUTURE OF CANADA’S PRIVATE PENSION SYSTEM”. This table will help Canadians attain a much better understand of senior statistics.
Table 2-2 Proportion of Total Population Aged 65 and Over
Year Population 65 and Over
Between 1900 and 1950, Canada’s senior population increased from 5.0% to 7.7%. That’s a 54% increase over 50 years. In these 50 years, Canada’s seniors averaged population growth of 1.08% per year.
Between 1950 and 1990, Canada’s senior population increased from 7.7% to 11.0%. That’s a 43% increase over 40 years. In these 40 years, Canada’s seniors averaged population growth of 1.07% per year.
Between 1900 and 1990, Canada’s senior population increased from 5.0% to 11.0%. This is a 120% increase over 90 years. In these 90 years, Canada’s senior’s averaged growth of 1.33% per year.
Between 2006 and 2026, the number of seniors is projected to increase from 4.3 million to 8.0 million. It would be 2046 for seniors to reach the level of 16 million. By 2041, the CPP Investment fund will have grown to approximately $1.1 trillion. At some point, money has to be invested and put to work else it just sits dormant and becomes absolutely useless.
One of the most popular myths is that low birth rates demand high immigration. Canada might not be growing like the third world, but is it indeed a dying country? In an article entitled “The year ahead” immigration lawyer Ryan Rosenburg analyzed Canada’s demographic scenario. He stated:
“By comparison, according to Statistics Canada, Canada’s current birth rate is approximately 1.1 per cent (381,000 births) and our current death rate is approximately 0.72 per cent (247,000 deaths).” This equals 134,000 people (381,000-247,000) each year. He then explained:
“With a national population of 34 million people, 240,000 to 265,000 new permanent residents in 2011 represents approximately 0.70 to 0.78 per cent of our current population. In 2006, Statistics Canada estimated Canada’s population at 30 million people and at the time 240,000 to 265,000 new immigrants represented approximately 0.80 to 0.88 per cent of our then population.”
Upon more careful analysis and examination, it is observed that this isn’t even close to the reality. A Canadian high school math wiz with a bad case of zits and crooked glasses simply subtracted 34 million in 2010 from 30 million in 2006. That totaled four million people over a 4-year period. Thus 4 million people divided by 4 years equaled one million people per year. Therefore the average population growth for Canada between 2006 and 2010 wasn’t 0.80 to 0.88 at all. It’s a lot closer to 3.18% each year or 866,000 people and remember to add in an extra 134,000 Canadians from natural growth (births minus deaths). Since 2006, Canada’s population had increased by 1 million people each year. These numbers would be much healthier if Canadians weren’t so busy killing their unborn fetuses via mass abortions.
William D. Gairdner is one of Canada’s busiest and most successful authors. In 1992, he published “The War Against The Family”. In 2008, he released “Oh, Oh Canada!”
Abortion is a controversial issue, but it will have to be dealt with sooner rather than later.
In 2010, William released the sequel to The Trouble With Canada and published “The Trouble With Canada… Still! A Citizen Speaks Out ”. In Chapter 10: “RADICAL FEMINISM: ATTACKING TRADITIONAL SOCIETY”, William stated that:
“Many libertarians and conservatives part company with me on this issue because they are staunch supporters of individual freedom. But I suggest they have not followed their own logic far enough to see what their liberty – license has produced – a plain and obvious evil: the deaths, since 1988, of over two million perfectly healthy unborn children in Canada (averaging now around 90,000 per year, down from a peak of 113,000), and over 40 million in America (now one million per year, down from a peak of 1.5 million).
That’s a loss of human lives of 900,000 every 10 years and 1.8 million every 20 years.
Banning abortion would boost Canada’s fertility rate by 67% a year. This will raise the fertility rate from a current 1.5 to a healthier 2.5 births per woman. That would boost the number of Canadians born each year from 134,000 to 224,000. Each Canadian fetus is a precious human resource that must be defended and protected at all costs. It’s not all right to kill off Canadians. Harper’s government should pass “The Fetus Right To Life” act.
Until that day arrives, genius thinkers, inventors, hockey players and future leaders will be continually ethnically cleansed. The Canadian Supreme Court invented a category law declaring a fetus a non-person or human being until it is actually born. This is cultural suicide and an assault on Canadian sovereignty and identity. The right to life is an ethical and moral universal human right. Canadians must speak up for those that are unable to do so. Doing nothing is a clear and silent admission of aiding legalized murder.
Henry Morgentaler is a doctor that devoted his entire life to legalizing abortion on demand at any stage of pregnancy as a political right. He was a radical psychopath with radical ideas. Abortion is a dated idea. There will be no ice hockey for Danny and no nursing career for Ellie because Danny and Ellie were terminated before they could ever get the chance to dream. Kevin and Sandy won’t be going to the park because their parents decided to abort their existences. The wind howled in the distance as the swings swayed and rattled violently, empty of the children that might want to enjoy their leisurely usage. There were no kids around at Christmas time to open presents. In this instance, it really was a silent night. William clarifies this sensitive issue when he said:
“Even if we all were to agree that what a pregnant woman is carrying is not a fully developed person, or “human being” we nevertheless cannot deny that in every case what she is carrying is alive, for if this were not so there would be no need for anyone to claim a right to “terminate” their pregnancy. In other words, we are talking about actual life, and not in any degree (as Justice Bertha Wilson so archly declared) a “potential life”. And so now, once we have secured what must be unavoidable agreement on this point, we are then forced to agree that in every case, absolutely, the life a pregnant woman is carrying is a human life. No one believes she is carrying a developing puppy or swan.”
If Canada has missing citizens, it’s because the government has allowed them to be systematically murdered before they can even form their first thoughts. Everyone supports tough labeling of alcohol and cigarette packaging warning pregnant women against ingestion that could harm the fetus. However, nobody thinks twice when a pre born child is eliminated from entering the world. It’s legalized murder and must stop immediately. Then there are the labor shortage myths that are always perpetuated.
Doesn’t Canada have a labor shortage in key sectors? Isn’t Canada’s labor force simply disappearing like an endangered tropical rain forest?
“Unemployment in Canada, as of May 2002, was almost 8 percent, a number that included many well –educated post – secondary graduates. Moreover, a large group of young workers have just begun entering the labor market. These are the baby – boom echo, the offspring of the boomers. They were born between 1980 and 1995 and, at 6.5 million, they are the second – largest population cohort in Canada, after the boomers themselves. A steady stream of echo boomers will be looking for their first jobs between now and 2015. Why make their entry into the labor force more difficult by bringing in armies of competing workers from abroad?”
Canada’s foreign-born population is less than a quarter and there are tens of thousands of highly skilled Canadian college and university students that confidently look forward to earning good money in exchange for hard earned degrees and diplomas. The majority of immigrants used to arrive in Canada from developed nations with strong educational systems and stable democracies. After 1991, the Canadian government decided to pursue ethnic votes and started mass immigration from the third world to achieve this objective. Lowell Green was able to get some very detailed information straight from the government’s database.
“In an effort to keep everything as current as possible, I have been able to obtain some figures from Immigration Canada for 2007 and 2008. While a breakdown per individual nation is not available, here are the numbers for those two years on a regional basis:
Source area Total immigration 2007-2008
Africa and the Middle East 99,878
Asia – Pacific 230,138
South and Central America 52,385
United States 21,665
Europe and the UK 79,720
It doesn’t take a genius or mathematician to decipher what’s happening.
The Four –to-One Ratio
We’ve accepted 330,015 immigrants from Africa, the Middle East, Asia and the Pacific in the past two years but only 101,385 from the UK, Europe and the US.”
Isn’t Canadasimply creating millions of jobs for newcomers? Does Canadaactually create millions of great paying jobs for native-born Canadian as well as newcomers each and every single year? In a chapter of her book entitled “Unintended Consequences”, Diane Francis revealed that:
”Between 1985 and 2000, the economy of Canada created 2,659,900 full – time jobs, or an average of 177,326 per year, fewer that the average of 204,442 adult immigrants and refugees allowed into the country during each of those years (another 20 percent are dependant children). By the end of the 1990s, the job situation worsened but immigration increased to 221,358 per year. To boot, that many native – borns entered the workforce each year at the same time.”
Didn’t the job situation pick up later? Isn’tCanadanow creating a slew of great paying jobs each and every year? CIBC’s Chief Economist Benjamin Tal explained in a detailed report why this simply isn’t even close to the reality. He wrote:
“the softening in the monthly pace of job creation from an average of 31,000 in 2010 to 20,000 in 2011 will single-handedly slow growth in personal spending by more than 0.4 percentage points,”.
Therefore, in 2010, 372,000 new jobs were created (31,000 X 12 months) and Canadahad 1.4 million people unemployed. In 2011, Canadais on par to create about 240,000 (20,000 X 12 months) this year. BMO economists have forecasted 15,000 jobs per month for 2012. That’s a 51% plunge in what is shaping up to beCanada’s worst recession ever. Most developed nations have slashed immigration to a trickle to allow their native labor markets time to recover. They don’t dare flood the market with 250,000 new entrants and with family reunification, up that number to 866,000 new entrants. How many of these people actually dug in their heels and stayed?
“A 2006 Statistics Canada study revealed something rather astonishing. Many thousands of immigrants do not come here to become Canadian or make Canada their home: more than one – sixth of all immigrants who come to Canada return to their native countries within a year, and one – third within twenty years!”
Canadahas become the world’s largest hotel hot spot. People are leaving in droves because nobody wants to spend the rest of their life flipping burgers or delivering fliers door to door. The paperboy is now the paper man. Walk into any mall and look whose behind the counter. Go into any coffee shop or Mc Donalds. If there happens to be a native born there it’s only because he/she is using the job to pay for tuition and books on route to something better for later.
You won’t hear one iota of complaint from large corporations. They get cheap and disposable labor every single year. There’s no need for raises, just clear the decks and hire a new junior worker. It’s gotten so bad that they even get people volunteering. They then simply get another volunteer student after the last one. It’s called an unpaid co – op.
“Right now we can’t even deal with the 2.5 million people in this city. I think it is more important to take care of people now before we start bringing in more people. There’s going to be a million more people, according to the official plan (which I did not support) over the next ten years coming into the city.
We can’t even deal with the 2.5 million people. How are we going to welcome another million people in? It is going to be chaotic. We can’t even deal with the chaos we have now. I think we have to say enough’s enough.”
– Mayor of Toronto, Rob Ford, TORONTO, ONTARIO— (Marketwire – 08/17/10)
The following analysis is done for the first 125 years of Canada’s immigration. This period is normal and is labeled “BMI” or “before mass immigration”. This was the 125-year period from 1860 to 1985, when immigration levels were dictated by common sense.
Between 1860 and 1985, Canada had taken in 200,000 to 400,000 or more immigrants in 9 out of the 125-year period. That’s 7.2% of intake. Most came to settle the wheat fields during and after confederation and many came during World War 1.

Normal immigration lasted from 1860 up to 1985. There were 102 years out of 125 or 81.6% when Canada ranged between 6,000 to 149,999 immigrants. In 47 of those years, Canada took in 49,999 immigrants 37.7% of the time.
PART 2 – AFTER MASS IMMIGRATION 1986 TO 2011
The year 1985 is significant because it represents the last decrease from Manpower’s employment index, whichCanadahad religiously followed. This system allowed immigrants good opportunities for employment at good wages but also didn’t depress the wages of native-born Canadians.
After Mulroney’s Conservatives swept to power, mass immigration stared by a simple increase of 3930 between 1985 and 1986 or a modest 4.6 per cent. It then rocketed an unhealthy 304% from 84,346 in 1985 to 256,702 immigrants in 1993.
Between 1989 and 2010, it would again increase by a whooping 88,000 per year from 191,000 to around 280,000, a 45% increase. This figure excludes the 250K guest workers, family reunification and the refugees all piling in.
The following analysis is done for the 25 years of Canada’s immigration. This period is abnormal and is therefore appropriately labeled “AMI” or “after mass immigration”. This was the 25-year period from 1986 to 2011, when immigration levels were run as an ethnic vote bank. The Manpower Employment Index was scrapped and wages plunged. Labor markets were forever saturated with too many workers chasing too few jobs. Here’s an excerpt by Immigration Canada compliments of Lowell Green’s 2010 smash hit “MAYDAY MAYDAY”. Mass immigration occurred in 1986 and continued è

Here are the averages since confederation from Lowell Green’s Mayday Mayday: Curb Immigration. Stop Multiculturalism. Or it’s the end of the Canada we know! “The Floodgates”/PG 50 (which were calculated by this researcher) è
1860-1890: Canada averaged 46,898 1891-1921: Canada averaged 126,141
1922 – 1952: Canada averaged 71,575 1953-1983: Canada averaged 146, 940
1984 – 2010: Canada averaged 218,207
Canada’s population increased by only 4.8 million over 30 years, from 15.4 million in 1951 to 20.2 million in 1981. After mass immigration, Canada’s population then rocketed from 20.2 million in 1981 to 34 million in 2011. That’s a population increase of a whopping 13.8 million. That’s an average of about 460,000/year.
There were about 2,680,000, (134,000 new born Canadians/year) from natural growth. That means approximately 11.2 million new citizens have arrived. Therefore, 6.5 million more immigrants came to Canada between the years 1981 to 2011 than did during the periods from 1951 to 1981.
The 250,000 number you always hear so much about doesn’t include refugees, guest workers and foreign students. These people compete with Canadians for jobs, homes, girlfriends and wives. That’s practically half a million every year. In 2011, Canada took in 280,000 immigrants and a quarter of a million guest workers.
On Monday, January 30TH, 2012, a metro news article was published on page 11 entitled “ Foreign workers sent home over permit snarl ”. The following are statistics of temporary foreign workers provided by Citizenship and Immigration Canada è
2001: 96, 390 2006: 160, 854
2002: 101,099 2007: 199, 246
2003: 109,679 2008: 249,796
2004: 125,034 2009: 281,349
2005: 140,690 2010: 282,771
Between 2001 and 2010, the number of temporary foreign workers increased by a whopping 290%. In order to work in Canada, a foreign worker needs a Labor Market Opinion from good old Service Canada. This assesses whether or not a foreign worker is needed (why would Canada need anybody when there are 1.4 million already out of work). The next step is for the job verification, medical and criminal background checks. Here’s a big idea: “Hire Canadians that have no job and want to work.”
Why hire a Canadian worker when you can import cheap labor from thePhilippines,ChinaandIndia? Since these workers are also eligible for citizenship after a certain time period,Canadais officially bringing in roughly 500,000 people a year. Unofficially, it’s around 280,000 because the immigration numbers are always separated. Canada is selling off all its corporate assets to foreign owners, therefore it stands to reason that hiring armies of cheap and imported slave labor would make perfect business sense. Lower wages equals fat profits for managers and shareholders.
Back in 2002,Canadahad a labor force of roughly 6.5 million and about 520,000 unemployed across the country. That year,Canadaallowed in 101,099 temporary workers. In 2010,Canadahad a labor force of 18.7 million and there was about 1.4 million unemployed across the country. That year,Canadaallowed in 282,771 temporary foreign workers.Canadahas stood back and allowed the entire steel (Dofasco, Algoma and Stelco) and alcohol industries (Labatt, Molson and Sleeman) to be acquired by foreign investors. They are the ones that pressure the government to continue the guest worker program. Meanwhile, recent university and college graduates can’t land jobs because foreign management was brought from overseas as well as cheap armies of slave labor quite willing to work for bottom basement wages.
Imagine being at a house party and ordering 3 pizzas and 10 cans of coke when there are only 10 guests. That should be enough for everybody. However, if all of a sudden, 100 guests show up, it’s not enough food and drinks for everybody. Many won’t get any food at all. There will be many starving guests. There are only 180,000 jobs being created in 2012 (BMO economists forecast) and Harper’s government is allowing in somewhere between 240-265K immigrants and about 280K guest workers. There are already 500,000 unemployed Canadians inOntarioalone and another 900,000 out of work in the rest of the country.
Even if Harper took in 240,000 immigrants, what would the other 60,000 do for work? What about all the unemployed already here? Foreign workers are also victims because they get bottom basement wages and when eligible for a raise after citizenship, they are fired or coaxed out so that the corporation can hire a new guest worker. Else, the contract is simply not renewed. This keeps overhead costs low so that large profits can be realized. Social engineering is simply great for shareholders and the suits because it means big profits and fat cat bonuses. It’s terrible news for workers because it means disposable jobs and crappy pay.
Canada’s entire labor force was 6.5 million back in 2002. Due to mass immigration, it tripled to 18.7 million in September of 2011. Unemployment tripled right along with it, from 520,000 in 2002 to 1.4 million in 2011. The 250K numbers doesn’t tell the public much because another 250,000 temporary workers are left out of this analysis and so are refugees as well. The numbers are “conveniently left out”. The total is now 500,000 per year and then add another 21,000 each year for parents and grandparents through family reunification.
Canada’s productivity and overall economy performed better during the periods where there was significantly less immigration. Wages were higher and more Canadians could afford homes. There wasn’t an endless stream of immigrants pouring intoToronto,VancouverandMontreal. This pushed the prices of everything from homes to motor vehicles and education into the stratosphere. People weren’t fired from their jobs because employer didn’t have an endless supply of cheap and desperate labor driving wages into the ground. They do now. A big shout goes out to the late Pierre Elliot Trudeau and another to the founding father of mass immigration, the former PC leader, Prime Minister Brain “the lying” Mulroney!!!
Of those 6.5 million new Canadians, at least 1.4 million (22%) now live in Toronto Public Housing. A total of 4% of Canada’s 34 million citizens now live in subsidized housing. This has made the Toronto Community Housing Corporation, Canada’s largest tenant. Canada now has sprawling ghettos from the Jane and Finch to the downtownToronto core of Sherborne andBloor Street. The local economies are unable to absorb all this labor and many people, unable to speak English were forced onto the welfare rolls.
The more pressing question has to be this: where are the hockey players of the future going to come from? How in the world willCanadamaintain its dominance of winning at the world’s juniors every other year? Reach into the trash and pull outCanada’s culture right now. Dust it off and clean it up so that it may shine once again. Canadians are not a bunch of doormats and must fight back against this suicidal onslaught.
Greek town is located along the Danforth in downtown Toronto. It’s slowly being converted into the outskirts of Islamabad, Cairoand Damascus. Halal meat shots and Pak grocery stores can be seen on every other block and mosques are literally shooting up like mushrooms. This isn’t the Canadawe want to celebrate in the future. The last myth is that massive amounts of immigration boost Canada’s security and economic success. Due to mass immigration, Canada now has a large contingent of homegrown terrorist cells and skyrocketing poverty rates.
In 1967, Lester B Pearson’s Liberal government introduced Canada and the world to the revolutionary points system. Those with an advanced education and the ability to speak English and French were preferred. Australia copied it and so did several other countries as well. Brain Mulroney helped pioneer the idea of mass immigration for the purpose of harvesting ethnic votes. Most countries decrease immigration during a recession. Prime Minister Mulroney made history by raising immigration levels to record highs during a recession. By 1993, Canada’s annual intake was 256,000 up from 84,000 only four years earlier. In 1993, Daniel Hamermesh at Princeton University Press, published “Labor Demand” which examined the responsiveness of wages to changes in supply.
“In the case of Canada, a 17 percent increase in supply, due to immigration, reduces wages by 5 percent.”
The factory and farming industries of 1902 have given rise to the information and knowledge economies of 2002. The lack of a good education is a recipe for disaster.
“The minister and the senator learned that post – 1980 immigrants to B.C earned 60 per cent of the income of Canadian – born people in equivalent age brackets. Moreover, they were quoted the testimony of Meyer Bernstein, director of research and analysis in Madame Robillard’s ministry. He had told the Commons Standing Committee on Labor and Immigration that:
Immigrants who don’t have French of English are half as likely to participate in the labor market; the unemployment rate is twice as high and even after a period of eight years in the country there are still performance differences….Language ability is correlated more strongly with settlement success and with contribution and income and taxes, etc., than almost any other measure you can think of.
In her statement to the minister and the senator, Dr. Roslyn Kunin said that her research findings revealed that “language is one of the best predictors of success” and that “suitability and having the spark are more important than any [government designed immigration] class.”
Won’t the children of poor immigrant families rise up and climb out of the pits of poverty? Can’t people simply get great paying factory jobs? The majority of Canadians have no clue as to the hardships faced by new Canadians in a vicious cutthroat economy.
Diane Francis is a columnist for the National Post Newspaper. With razor sharp skills and intense focus, she has unleashed a multitude of hard-hitting best selling books. These include: Controlling Interest: Who Owns Canada, Fighting for Canada, and 50 Best Stocks. In 2002, she released: IMMIGRATION: The Economic Case. Here is what Diane’s investigations revealed:
“Only 15 percent of American workers and 18 percent of Canadian workers are employed in the factories, half as many as after the Second World War. These workers are highly trained and highly paid. Farm jobs no longer exist either, except seasonally and at very low wages.
The only labor – intense services that are growing employ highly skilled “knowledge workers” who must have the languages, adaptability, and education to improve professionally. Canada does not need more parking lot attendants, dishwashers, housekeepers, or cab drivers, but that’s the skill level of many who came in the 1990s. The labor mismatch, and low education levels of most entrants (twice as many immigrants have less than Grade 9 education as do native – borns), is why it is less likely now for the performances of their children to improve in the future. Most will live in economic – ethnic ghettos for generations and remain members of their underclass. Dropout rates for the children of immigrants are higher than for native – borns, according to inner – city statistics in Toronto.
”We cannot keep the kids in high school because they either hate it, because they struggle with the curriculum, or else they have to work to help support the extended family, or they have absolutely no ambition” said an exasperated secondary school principal in downtown Toronto. “In other cases, it’s a cultural thing. Everybody is a cleaning lady or everybody grows marijuana indoors or everybody in their ethnic group is a laborer. That’s all they aspire to be or that’s all they are capable of doing.”
Another impediment is the sheer number of arrivals. Enclaves of certain ethnic groups, who have taken the most advantage of family reunification rules, have formed in Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal. These groups have little reason, or incentive, to assimilate. And if they don’t assimilate, they cannot achieve. Many don’t learn English. Their attitudes are often impediments to social advancement. “National origin matters in terms of success. Ethnicity matters for a long time,” said economist Professor Borjas in his book Heaven’s Door.
In Ontario, for instance, huge numbers of Chinese children, even those born here or raised by their grandparents or other caregivers speaking Mandarin only, are hitting the school system and don’t qualify for English as a Secondary language tutoring because they have been more than two years in the country or were born here. That means funds from other students must be streamed, if all possible, into their tutoring. Even if tutored for a short period of time, the child’s success will be sandbagged from the get go because of poor language skills.
Toronto school board chair Donna Cansfield said that dropout rates among immigrant and refugee children, indicators of future success, are horrific among certain ethnic groups. The board tracks such figures and has found that many cultures simply do not value education. Dropout rates are high for children who are disadvantaged because they come from dysfunctional or fragmented families, or because they cannot master Canada’s culture, make friends or finish schoolwork.
“Immigration and the lack of resources to help assimilate these kids has been a concern of mine for a long time. Everybody acknowledges the problem and nobody takes responsibility for it,” she said. “Immigration is one of the greatest challenges we have as a school board. They are literally flooding into Toronto. How does a teacher cope with four different languages in her classroom? It is not unusual for one classroom of 25 to have 16 kids who do not speak any English. In one school in Islington there are 64 languages spoken by the students,” she said.
Daniel Stoffman is one of Canada’s best investigative writers. He wrote best sellers such as Boom, Bust and Echo and The Money Machine. He was commissioned by the Atkinson Society to research Canada’s immigration industry. He started his investigations in 1990 and finished in 2001. In 2002, he released “WHO GETS IN: What’s wrong with Canada’s immigration program – and how to fix it”. He had this to say about family reunification.
“The expansion of family – class immigration over the past 20 years is the main reason the economic performance of immigrants has declined. Family – class immigrants need meet no criteria of skills or education; they can come even if they are illiterate in their own language. And so recent immigrants earn less, pay less tax, have higher unemployment rates, and make more use of welfare than previous cohorts of immigrants.”
In 2011, the honorable Prime Minister Stephen Harper slashed family reunification by 40%. Immigrants have also whined about not being able to pass The Conservatives Government new citizenship test. Good!!! It’s about time people had to work for their Canadian identity. The test should be expanded to several pages to include entire sections on Canadian culture and history too. Canadian culture should be aggressively forced on all new Canadians. Give them all a case of Molson’s Canadian, a hockey stick and a copy of Robert Bothwell & J.L. Granstein’s “OUR CENTURY: THE CANADIAN JOURNEY”.
According to The Centre for Immigration Policy Reform, in 2009, only 17 percent of new Canadians were taken in under the points system. In 2010, it had decreased to a paltry 15 percent. This is a severe waste of an innovative system, which was designed to help new Canadian citizens integrate and succeed in society. The consequences are devastating to newcomers.
“The poverty level of immigrants who came after 1991 had soared to more than 50 percent, while the poverty level among the Canadian – born remained almost unchanged. Why the surge in poverty among immigrants? Only 23 percent of immigrants are chosen for their occupational and linguistic skills. A proposal in the Not Just Numbers report to make knowledge of English or French a mandatory requirement for immigrants was ignored; so many new residents of Toronto cannot speak English. The city’s employers are naturally reluctant to hire immigrants who can’t communicate.”
Most new immigrants to Canada are struggling and living in poverty. People with degrees are driving taxis. Doctors are working as security guards in libraries. The story is much different south of the border. Newcomers to the United States have contributed enormous benefits and wealth to the local and global economy. The most talented students from around the world end up studying in America’s colleges and universities. In the era of advanced communications technology, this strategy has enabled America to lead the world in the creation of new and useful technologies, medicines and gadgets that people come to depend on every single day of the year. EDWARD ALDEN is the Bernard L. Schwartz Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations and the former Washington bureau chief for the Financial Times. In 2008, he released “THE CLOSING OF THE AMERICAN BORDER: Terrorism, Immigration, and Security Since 9/11”. He revealed exactly what the United States has done in order to achieve this great success.
“Throughout the postwar period, the best students from around the world have flocked to American universities. Since the mid – 1950s, there had been a virtually uninterrupted rise in the number of foreign students enrolled in the United States, with the exception of a slight dip following the deep recession of the early 1980s. The numbers grew from fewer than 50,000 to a peak of nearly 600,000 by the year 2000.
The payoffs could be measured in multiple ways. In science and engineering in particular, foreign students and researchers have become increasingly important as American students showed less interest in those fields. By 2000, nearly 40 percent of the doctorates in Science and engineering and 30 percent of the master’s degrees awarded by U.S universities were held by foreign – born students. The proportion was even higher in mathematics, computer science, and the physical and life sciences. Among postdoctoral students doing research at the highest levels, nearly 60 percent were foreign – born. The economic value of those graduates was extraordinary. The universities served as a pipeline into American business, channeling talented students into positions at the best U.S. companies or connecting them with financial bakers if they wanted to strike out on their own. Once here to study, a surprisingly high percentage of the top foreign students remained. A 2001 study found that nearly two – thirds of those who received doctoral degrees in science or engineering were still in the United States two years later.
At U.S. multinational companies surveyed by the National Academics, between 30 and 50 percent of researchers were foreign born. “The research and development divisions of U.S corporations continue to develop new technologies and remain internationally competitive in part because immigration provides them with the best talent in the world,” said a major 2004 study on foreign students.”
America has transformed immigrant engineers and entrepreneurs in global superstars. Success stories are numerous: Andy Grove of Intel, Sergey Brin of Google, Pierre Omidyar of Ebay, and Yahoo’s founder Jerry Yang. Why doesn’t the Canadian government compete on this level? Why doesn’t Canada copy America’s great strategy?
Will the new Harper government change our immigration policy, reduce the amounts taken in and set high standarts for the people we do bring in? There is a very good reason that Lowell Green’s 2010 best selling new book on Canada’s disastrous immigration system was entitled: “Mayday Mayday: Curb immigration. Stop multiculturalism. Or it’s the end of the Canada we know! ”. The jobless rate in 2002 of eight percent about 520,000 people might have seemed high, but eight years later, it actually appeared rather low.
“According to Statistics Canada, as of May 2010, 1,498,300 people were unemployed in Canada. Yes, you are reading it right. Figures for May 2010 show that one million. Four hundred and ninety – eight thousand, three hundred people were looking for jobs in this country.
Which surely begs the question: Why in the world are we importing another 250,000 immigrants, to say nothing of 30,000 or 40,000 thousand refugees, a quarter of a million temporary workers, and 79,000 foreign students every year?”
A few of these new guests have transformed Canada into a major strategic hub for terrorist organizations that find undefended borders irresistible not to penetrate.
“In 1998 Ward Elcock, director of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, told a Canadian Senate committee that “there are more international terrorist groups active here than in any other country in the world,” perhaps with the exception of the United States. CSIS, he said, was investigating 50 organizations and 350 individuals suspected of being terrorists. The organizations included Hezbollah and other Shiite Islamic terrorist organizations; several Sunni Islamic extremist groups, including Hamas; the Irish Republican Army; the Tamil Tigers; the Kurdistan Workers’ Party; and all the major Sikh terrorist groups.”
How long will it be before the subway bombings in Spain, Russia and France, the tube bombings in Britain or the Twin Tower attacks in the United States finally catch up to Canada’s obvious vulnerabilities? A terrorist attack is likely to occur sometime in the future and somewhere on Canadian soil. The good news is things are slowly changing.
Canadians are beer drinkers, hockey lovers and gift givers on Christmas day. Canada is an English and French speaking Christian nation. Large-scale immigration damages Canada’s majority Christian identity. It costs our native-born labor workers billions of dollars in lost wages each year. Security threats have also become huge concerns, especially to large and powerful American neighbors. Terrorists now operate on Canadian soil, threatening Canadian and American national sovereignty and ways of life. It was approximately twenty-five years ago that the religious fanaticism reared its ugly head.
“In June 1985 Sikhs blew up an airliner, in support of an independent Kalistan on the subcontinent. This mass murder of 329 people apparently was plotted by Canadians on Canadian soil.”
Canada should deploy the army, arrest all the terrorists, strip them of citizenship rights, put them all on a plane and deport them all back to their home countries. Immigration levels must be reduced from 866,000 people per year back to the 1989 level of 84,000 people per year. Seventy five per cent of all new immigrants should be stringently assessed under the points system. Eighty percent of all new Canadian citizens should come from democratic nations with strong western values. Isn’t it racist to exclude others from non-western countries? Aren’t we all similar deep down? Doesn’t everyone love Canada and it’s democracy as much as anyone else?
In Tarek Fatah’s “CHASING A MIRAGE: THE TRAGIC ILLUSION OF AN ISLAMIC STATE”, the answer is a resounding “no” and it is also revealed that an evil and aggressive form of ideological fanaticism has already seeped inside Christian Canada’s precious gates.
“IT WAS A COLD January morning in 2003 as I walked through ankle – deep icy snow into the Toronto Convention Centre. I was attending a conference of Muslims arranged by groups allied to the Saudi – based World Assembly of Muslim Youth – WAMY. The freezing temperature and frosty welcome I received at the hands of the young Islamists had not prepared me for the chilling lecture I was about to hear. The speaker, a Kuwaiti politician, said: “Western civilization is rotten from within and nearing collapse…it[the West] will continue to grow until an outside force hits it and you will be surprised at how quickly it falls.”
The crowd burst into applause. Just sixteen months beforehand, an “outside force” had hit the New York Twin Towers on 9/11, and here was Tareq Al Suwaidan, a member of the Muslim Brotherhood from Kuwait, rubbing salt into the wounds of the West. The audience of more than two thousand young Canadian Muslims, many of them associated with the Muslim Students Association (MSA), carefully segregated into male and female sections, listened in awe. Suwaidan used elaborate charts to draw projections about the impending collapse of the West. His words were worrisome, but the response to his speech by the young Muslim Canadians was deeply troubling. They lustily cheered the Kuwaiti Islamist as he predicted the doom of the very civilization these young men and women were living in.
Why were these Muslim youth, born and educated in Canada, cheering the fall of the West? Did they not consider themselves to be part of the West? If they did, why would they be cheering its imminent collapse and who were they expecting to carry out the “outside force” attack? How could they, as citizens of a democratic Western country, allow a Kuwaiti politician to write the obituary of the West, but also cheer him on as he did so?”
Islamic immigration has become a dangerous Trojan horse and must be totally stopped.
It’s an aggressive form of Nazi ideology and it breeds hatred towards Canadians and the western identity. This doesn’t happen inside churches or Jewish Synagogues. It’s unlikely to occur in Buddhist, Sikh or Hindu temples. The Canadian Security Intelligence Agency and the CIA south of the border are more likely to target the one religion that inspires violence and war. Mark Steyn explained all about it in his global bestseller “AMERICA ALONE: THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT”. In it, he explained that:
“The mosques are recruiters for the jihad and play an important role in ideological subordination and cell discipline. In globalization terms, that’s a perfect model. Unlike the Soviets, it’s a franchise business rather than owner – operated; the Commies had “deep sleepers” who had to be “controlled” in a very hierarchical chain. But who needs that with Islam? Not long after September 11, I said, just as an aside, that these days whenever something goofy turns up on the news chances are it involves some fellow called Mohammed. It was a throwaway line, but if you want to compile chapter and verse, you can add to the list every week.
A plane flies into the World Trade Center? Mohammed Atta.
A sniper starts killing gas station customers around Washington, D.C? John Allen Muhammed.
A guy fatally stabs a Dutch movie director? Mohammed Bouyeri.
A gunman shoots up the El Al counter at Los Angeles airport? Hesham Mohamed Hedayet.
A terrorist slaughters dozens in Bali? Noordin Mohamed.
A British subject self – detonates in a Tel Aviv bar? Asif Mohammed Hanif.
A terrorist cell bombs the U.S embassies in Kenya and Tanzania? Ali Mohamed.
A gang rapist preys on the women of Sydney? Mohammed Skaf.
A group of Dearborn, Michigan, men charged with cigarette racketeering in order to fund Hezbollah? Fadi Mohamad – Musbah Hammoud, Mohammed Fawzi Zeidan, and Imad Mohamad – Musbah Hammoud.
A Canadian terror cell is arrested for plotting to bomb Ottawa and behead the prime minister? Mohammed Dirie, Amin Mohamed Durrani, and Yasim Abdi Mohamed.
These last three represent a “broad strata” of Canadian society, according to Mike McDonnell, assistant commissioner of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and a man who must have aced Sensitivity Training class. To the casual observer, the broad strata would seem to be a very singular stratum: in their first appearance in court, all twelve men arrested in that Ontario plot requested the Koran.”
Geert Wilders had called the Koran a book of war and violence. He is the leader of The Party For Freedom; which forms part of a powerful government coalition in The Netherlands. All across Europe, right wing or ultra nationalist parties are coming to power. Denmark has the toughest immigration policies in the EU. Others simply put their heads in the sand and pretended like nothing was wrong.
“While Denmark was making a serious effort to tackle its immigration and integration problems, Sweden was doing nothing – and going to hell in a handbasket. Crime figures were making major jumps every year. The number of ghettos was rising at a dizzying speed. Sweden now had a murder rate twice that of the United States. Yet politicians and journalists continued to pretend there was no problem. Instead, the establishment was persecuting people for belonging to the Swedish Democratic Party – the one party that acknowledged the problems and wanted to put them on the national agenda. In a blonder version of Mao’s Cultural Revolution, Swedish Democrats were being driven from their jobs as a result of staged “people’s protests” organized by the youth divisions of other parties.* Since 2002, left – wing activists had broken up Swedish Democratic meetings more than once, issued death threats, and committed acts of violence against party members, including severe beatings and at least one attempted murder. On the country’s National Day in June 2005, Stockholm was rife with radical – left unrest: a thousand protesters marched in masks; several extremists burned the Swedish flag while calling for their country’s downfall; and members of the far left and right clashed brutally in a subway station.
The hub of Sweden’s integration crisis was Malmo, the country’s third – largest city, now nearly 40 percent non – Swedish. In Malmo, the incidence of rape was five or six times higher than in nearby Copenhagen; child rapes had doubled in a decade; during the autumn of 2004 alone, the number of robberies had gone up by 50 percent. Teenagers were torching schools, laughing at the firemen who came to put out the fires, and then torching them again. Anti – Semitic harassment was now routine; so were honor killings. Things were so bad that even the Swedish media couldn’t entirely ignore them. (“Do you have control over the situation in Malmo? A reporter for Aftonbladet asked a police investigator. “No, I can’t say we do,” he replied.) Swedes were leaving the city in droves. The only ethnic Swedish children left in some schools, said one observer, were “the children of welfare cases and drug addicts.”
France and The Netherlands are deporting tens of thousands back to their home countries. The Danish People’s Party, France’s National Front, Belgium’s Vlams Block, Finland’s The True Finns, The Swedish Democrats and Austria’s FPO have all made enough gains in order to form coalition governments. Political correctness simply couldn’t hide the statistics pouring out of the government’s own crime figures. These figures were either ignored or completely disregarded by a fat and thick, bureaucratic and disconnected political elite that continued to make a series of mind numbing public statements.
“ Few in Norway have influenced evolution of the immigration debate more dramatically than Wikan. A slender, grandmotherly woman with long white hair and wide, searching eyes, she’s a complicated and often maddening contradictory figure, sometimes sounding like a typical academic elitist – a priestess of PC – and sometimes piping up to quash received opinions. (I like to think of her as embodying the tensions that exist between the establishment and the man in the street where these issues are concerned.) On the one hand, she’s argued that it’s not unreasonable to expect immigrants to integrate, learn Norwegian, and respect democratic values; on the other hand, she’s invariably responded to criticism of any aspect of Islam with the flat assertion that it’s a religion of peace, justice, and gender equality. If the Iraqi – Norwegian writer Walid al – Kubaisi calls Islam “an all – comprehensive world view,” Wikan insists on attributing the worldviews of Muslims exclusively to their various national or tribal backgrounds; she seems determined to erect a firewall, as it were, between those worldviews and Islam itself.
On September 6, 2001, it was reported that 65 percent of rapes in Norway were committed by “non – Western immigrants” (a term that in Norway is essentially synonymous with “Muslims”); asked to comment on this alarming statistic, Wikan said that “Norwegian women must take their share of responsibilities for these rapes” because Muslim men found their manner of dress provocative. One reason for this high figure, she explained, was that in the Islamic world “rape is scarcely punished,” since Muslims “believe that it is women who are responsible for rape.” Wikan concluded not that Muslim men in Europe needed to adjust to Western norms, but that “Norwegian women must realize that we live in a multicultural society and adapt to it.”
Norwegian citizens eventually realized that there was a rape spree occurring in the streets. Photos of young girls covered in blood from the sex assaults were splashed across daily newspapers. Many of the victims were young teenagers. Carl Hagan’s anti immigration Progress Party, which was founded around 1997, moved from obscurity into second place. The far right Swiss People’s Party is ruling Switzerland, has tightened its borders and banned Minarets on new mosques. A group of Algerian French women have started a group called “Neither Whores nor Submissives”. Many had been gang raped several times over. This had also occurred in record numbers in Sweden, Denmark, Holland and Norway. European women can’t go out anymore and enjoy dancing or a few drinks without having to worry about roaming gangs of Muslim rapists. Women in heavily populated Muslim neighborhoods in France now wear veils in order to avoid being harassed. Go and get a copy of the Muslim holy book and flip to Q. 33:59. Muslim women are instructed accordingly:
“O Prophet tell your wives, your daughters and the women of the believers that they should bring some of their cloaks (Jalabib) closer/nearer (yudnina) to themselves, that is a minimum [measure] so that they would be recognized [as such] and hence not molested.”
Canadian taxpayers aren’t forking over hard earned dough so that their daughters will get called “hoar” in public places for not wearing a goddamn headscarf. It happens in the clubbing district of downtown Toronto on Richmond Street. In the early morning of New Year’s Day, 5 Muslim men followed 2 Canadian women through downtown Toronto back to their hotel room. They were trapped in their suite and sexually assaulted. France, Holland, Denmark and Germany have banned headscarves in the public schools. The equality between men and women is a universal western value and totally non negotiable. The headscarf is a declaration of war against women. It reduces them to transient officials, nothing more than commodities. Muslims have launched a reverse crusade colonization of the western powers. This invasion is occurring in places that nobody would have ever suspected. The assault on western values is even occurring in the land down under.
“In October 2006, an Australian imam of Lebanese descent, the country’s most senior Muslim cleric, triggered outrage when he described women who dress immodestly (in his view) as “uncovered meat” who invite sexual attacks. Sheikh Taj Aldin al – Hilali, the so – called Mufti of Australia, condemned women who he said “sway suggestively”, wear makeup, and do not wear the hijab. The idea that women are to blame for rape is preposterous, but that is what the sheikh suggested while delivering a sermon during the month of Ramadan. Not a single member of the congregation protested or challenged the imam. Later, the imam apologized for his comments, but his apology reflected the deep – seated attitudes among many clerics of Islam about women. He told reporters, “I had only intended to protect women’s honour.” During the sermon, al – Hilali had said:
“If you take out uncovered meat and place it outside on the street, or in the garden,
or in the garden, or in the park, or in the backyard without cover, and the cats come
to eat it…whose fault is it – the cats’ or the uncovered meat? The uncovered meat is
the problem. If she was in her room, in her home, in her hijab, no problem would
Women, al – Hilali of Australia said were “weapons” used by “Satan” to control men.
If Sheikh al – Hilali of Australia believes that women are Satan’s weapons against men, he is relying on the long history of interpreting the Quran in a particular misogynistic manner. These interpretations that place women as sexual objects are not just the work of medieval scholars, but the leaders of the contemporary 20 – century Islamist movement. Such leaders include the late Abul Ala Maudoodi, who worked closely with the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood. Maudoodi’s writings are widely read and believed as absolute truths in Islamic schools and mosques in North America and Europe. Maudoodi gives a nod to the rape of non – Muslim women who are captured in war, yet few Muslim women have stood up to condemn an ideology that gives religious sanction to rape. Little wonder that Pakistani troops in the Bangladesh war had no hesitation raping Bengali women after clerics had declared these Muslims women as non – Muslim enemies of Islam. The same ideology today gives religious license to the Janjaweed Arab militia in Sudan to rape Darfuri women – their very own Muslim sisters.”
The two countries in the world with the strongest democratic representation has to be Switzerland with the other being Australia. Aussies know their politicians on a very intimate level. Assaults on freedoms such as the equality of men and women are simply dealt with immediately. Opposition leader Tony Abbott announced in July of 2010 that Australia would slash its immigration intake by 43% from 300,000 to around 170,000 each year. This will reduce population growth from 2 percent down to 1.4 per cent. Concerns were echoed about the stress large amounts of people were putting on cities such as traffic congestion. He also stated:
”The immigration program should focus on immigrants who will make a contribution to our country and who are likely to be proud of their new nationality.”
A high focus would also be on skilled immigrants. This is after all, the information era where things such as language and cultural integration such as the equality of men and women, respect for democratic principals and a desire to help make Australia the best country in the world. He then borrowed a page from the often outspoken former Prime Minister John Howard when stating:
“We will determine who comes to our country and the circumstances under which they come.”
Australia had severely tightened its immigration systems, making it very difficult to gain entry. Voters have demanded tighter controls and they got them. Meanwhile, Pakistan is on Canada’s top ten source countries. It is one of the most violent and fanatical terrorist states in the world. Women are prisoners in the home. Hindus and Christians are raped and murdered on a daily basis. Suicide bombers roam freely, killing thousands of people each year. In David Pryce – Jones “THE CLOSED CIRCLE: AN INTERPRETATION OF THE ARABS”, a French sociologist and militant progressive, Juliette Minces, explained why sexual aggression is manifesting in the sick, twisted and primitive minds of some Muslim men.
“In such cases, sexuality combines with an almost racial form of nationalism. The idea is to prove not only one’s potency but also the sexual superiority of one’s group. Furthermore, the Western woman is not a member of the clan, so everything is permissible….Even more than an Arab woman, a Western woman is seen as potential prey.”
Isn’t that disgusting? Young men are being raised to believe that women are property and are nothing more than a target for gang rape. The clan mentality promotes a clash of cultures between western ideals of individualism and the group mentality of tribal family life. This has severe consequences for young women that want to strike develop their own style and Canadian identity. Aruna Papp is the author of the Frontier Centre for Public Policy’s study, “Culturally – driven violence against women: A growing problem in Canada’s immigrant communities,” available at/www.fcpp.org . She wrote an article in the Epoch Times about this cultural phenomenon. In it, she stated that:
“Back in June, in an “honour – killing” murder trail now known across Canada, Muhammad Parvez and Waqas Parvez pleaded guilty to the 2007 murder of 16 year old Aqsa Parvez (their daughter/sister respectively). According to media reports, not one of the 12 people present in the house could – or would – bear witness to the crime.
Regrettably, unless attitudes in some immigrant communities change, this may not be the last time Canadians hear of such tragedies.
The same day the Parvez males pled guilty to murdering Aqsa for “dishonoring” their family, I happened to conduct a workshop in an elementary school for south Asian women in Toronto. I asked the participants why the boys and girls were segregated on the playground and learned that about 75 per cent of the children in this school are from one region of South Asia – the same one Aqsa Parvez came from.
While segregation of children by gender is not the school policy, the volunteer parents who monitor the playground and speak their language instruct the children in appropriate culturally – accepted behaviors. For example, a majority of the boys and girls wore native outfits and few spoke English.
The consensus among the 19 mothers in the workshop was that if Aqsa had obeyed her parents, she would still be alive today.
All these mothers were resistant to the notion their children should adopt Western values – the problem for Aqsa Parvez. Aqsa had wanted to wear the clothes other Canadian kids do, go to the mall with her friends, hold down a part – time job, and that’s why she was killed. Like many of Aqsa’s friends from a local Mosque, these mothers had agreed she brought her death upon herself.”
The Canadian Government should promote Canadian culture. Give new citizens cultural capital by sharing Canada’s great history and deep cultural heritage. They shouldn’t be left on their own in a complex society to try and figure it out. Citizenship must have not only obligations but responsibilities too. Steven Harper updated the discover Canada booklet and included some rather shocking new information:
”Canada’s openness and generosity do not extend to barbaric practices that tolerate spousal abuse, ‘honour killings,’ female genital mutilation, or other gender – based violence. Those guilty of these crimes are severely punished under Canada’s
Refugee intake should also be cut by ninety nine percent from 40,000 down to 100 per year. Isn’t it simply cruel and malicious to stop refugees from arriving on our shores? In 2001; Mr. Collacott, a former ambassador to many overseas countries, Charles Campbell, former vice – chair of the Immigration Appeal Board; J.C Best, former deputy minister of immigration; and Des Verma, former member of the Immigration and Refugee Board published an open letter in several Canadian newspapers. Here’s what they all concluded:
“Our refugee program is facing widespread abuse. Canadians are proud of their tradition of accepting refugees fleeing persecution. But a particular serious problem arising from the refugee determination system is lack of control over our borders resulting from the application of the 50 – year – old United Nations Convention on the status of Refugees and from an interpretation of the Charter of Rights. Our adherence to the Convention makes it possible for virtually anyone who sets foot on our soil or arrives at our borders to enter our refugee determination system and stand a good chance of never being forced to leave.
“Our system, arguably the most generous in the world, has thus become a magnet not only for tens of thousands of persons who are simply seeking better economic opportunities but also for criminals and terrorists who are fugitives from justice in their own countries. Because Charter protection is now available to everyone on our territory, it is also now almost impossible to remove serious criminals and terrorists, along with many others who should not be allowed to remain here.”
“Our first responsibility is to Canadians. When the Charter of Rights and Freedoms was being drafted, those preparing it were warned that, if its wording did not restrict its application to Canadians, it could be used to bypass and frustrate our immigration laws. This is precisely what has happened.
“The result is a 1985 Supreme Court decision that concluded that the Charter applied to anyone on Canadian soil or within Canada’s territorial waters, whether here legally or not. In consequence, we have the most time consuming and expensive refugee determination system in the world.
“In the circumstances, the application of the Charter to those who have no right of residency here needs to be re – examined as a matter of urgency. The relevant sections should henceforth apply only to Canadian citizens and legal permanent residents of Canada. This could be achieved by amending the Charter or invoking the notwithstanding clause.
“We must emphasize that Parliament’s will – as expressed in the Immigration Act prior to the 1985 court decision – was that there should be no right of appeal against a decision to deny a Canadian visa, except in the case of applications for the immediate families of legal Canadian residents. This corresponds with the laws of most other countries of the world. For Canada to throw away this provision seriously undermines our sovereignty.”
Special interest groups and armies of immigration lawyers have blocked any meaningful reforms to our current deplorable systems. Michael Cheena is the president of “THE ABORIGINAL URBAN ALLIANCE OF ONTARIO”. In early 2010, he fired off a letter to the Honorable Minister Jason Kenney with similar concerns. It stated:
“The refugee assessment process warrants a review in terms of how Canada deals with its refugee claimants or those seeking asylum from persecution. As an Aboriginal Canadian, I welcome any proposed changes to reform the refugee system that will put a cap on the influx of refugees that Canada has to absorb. The powerful Canadian refugee lobby groups should not dictate policy changes to the Canadian government that are more lenient in allowing entry of refugees into Canada.
Canada’s refugee system has been abused by the amount of time spent to try to prove the legitimacy of false claims. Since Canada has required visas from claimants in an attempt to deter the mass of refugee claims, bogus claimants far exceed legitimate claimants in numbers. The system needs revision so that false claims are weeded out earlier.
Finally, Canadian taxpayers are being burdened with the responsibility of providing the most generous package of benefits to anyone who is accepted as a refugee in this country. I do not believe we have the responsibility to support a greater number of refugees than we currently support.”
Canada is giving away citizenship on the cheap without anyone ever knowing anything about our culture, history or ways of life. People are literally cheating and lying to get in and nobody is stopping this fraud. How much are Canadian taxpayers forking over? Jack Manion is a former immigration deputy minister and a former immigration official. He had quite a bit to say about these deficiencies at Senate hearings. He stated:
“The refugee process has become so mammoth that it is soaking up virtually all the available resources in the immigration portfolio. Governments in Canada are now spending something in the order of $4 billion on immigration and refugee matters. Most of that is spent unproductively. There is not enough money for enforcement. There is not enough money for visa control overseas and proper co – ordination. Proceedings are started and then run automatically over the telephone and by paper. It is no way to run an immigration program. I am horrified by what I see and what I hear every day from friends of mine who have connections in the immigration service. The morale in the immigration service is deplorable.
“It’s a disgrace when people like me write letters successively to one minister after another and get pre – printed replies from correspondence clerks,”
“They should listen to people other than the interest groups, if they want to find out what Canada thinks and what can be done about these problems.”
Canada could consider replacing weak and incompetent leaders with strong ones. Mayor Rob Ford is such an example as he continually strives for “RESPECT FOR TAXPAYERS” and less useful idiots like Jason Kenney, our Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism. Why criticize Jason Kenney? It has to do with an assortment of bizarre and perplexing statements that he has made to the local press but in particular, to the Islamic Society of North America in Mississauga, Ontario on November 29, 2008. Here’s some of what he said during that morning.
“We are maintaining historic high levels of immigration from across the world, including South Asia, including North Africa. In fact, many developed countries are actually cutting their immigration levels right now because of the economic difficulty. Yesterday I was proud to announce that Canada, I think alone in the developed world, is going to maintain historically high levels of immigration because we believe that immigration helps fuel our economic security and future.”
Charles M. Campbell served on the former Immigration Appeal Board for ten years, eight of them as vice – chairman. In 1989 he published “A Time Bomb Ticking: Canadian Immigration in Crisis”. Eleven years later, he also released “Betrayal & Deceit: The Politics of Canadian Immigration”. What is the effect of high immigration levels on the Canadian labor markets? The Economic Council of Canada cites the 1985 Macdonald
Royal Commission Report:
“A broad consensus is that high levels of immigration will increase aggregate variables such as labor force, investment and real gross expenditure, but cause…real income per capita and real wages to decline.”
George Borjas of Harvard University, is the world’s leading authority on the impact of immigration on local economies. He invented a formula to estimate the immigration surplus in any free-market economy. How much money does mass immigration actually cost Canadian workers?
“Applied to Canada, the Borjas formula reveals a loss to native workers of $30.7 billion annually.”
Increasing the labor force effectively depresses wages. People then work longer and longer hours to compensate for the lost income. But doesn’t immigration make Canadians richer? What about the financial benefits that we keep hearing so much about? Don’t immigrants simply create tons and tons of wealth for all Canadians?
“To conclude: a recent study by Economist Herbert Grubel of Simon Fraser University revealed that the 2.5 million immigrants who came to Canada between 1990 and 2002 received $18.3 billion more in government services and benefits in the year 2002 alone than they paid in taxes for that year! Grubel states that this amount was more than the federal government contributed to health care in 2000-2001, and more than twice what it spent on defence.”
This is a massive amount as immigrants are draining billions which could have been used elsewhere. Almost twenty billion a year could be used for new schools, an expansion of the TTC subway lines or even a larger tax return for hard working Canadians. It could even be applied to the deficit. This is taxpayer money and it’s being thrown away needlessly. Binoy Thomas of the Weekly Voice found out from Jason Kenney the exact sums that Canadian taxpayers are forking over for this failed experiment.
“Our government has tripled the federal funds for immigrant services like free language classes and job search skills. So nationally we’re spending $600 million this year as opposed to $200 million back in 2005.”
Will Canada have a population of fifty million people by 2026? Where will they all live? Most of Canada consists of lakes, rivers and vast forests. Most cities are already overcrowded. There are about one and a half million unemployed Canadians. Are Canadians willing and able to declare a common culture and actually stand up to defend Christian values? Canada is a majority Christian nation. Canadians communicate in English and French. Canadians are a beer drinking and hockey loving people. Canada is competing in the information economy and should obtain a majority of its immigrants from well-developed first world nations. What are the consequences of Canada’s recent switch of getting the vast majority of new Canadians from failed third world banana republics?
Patrick Grady, an economist consultant with Global Economics Ltd., and a former senior official with the Federal Department of Finance and Bank of Canada, writes an interesting chapter in the book The Effects of Mass Immigration on Canadian Living Standarts and Society. He says: “There is growing evidence that Canadian employers are not just being stupid. They have reasonable grounds to discount the value of foreign education. The disconnect between education and skills for many immigrants from third – world countries seems to be a definite factor explaining the poorer earnings performance.”
He goes on to list a number of economic studies that indicate the education obtained in many foreign countries is simply not as good as it is in Canada. He cites the recent International Adult Literacy Survey that identified a 45 – percentage point difference between average skill – level test scores of immigrants with no Canadian education and those of the native born. Another study, using the same test scores found, “a learning gap of 3.0 years for recent immigrants and 2.1 years even for those whose first language was English or French. That is enough to make a foreign university graduate with a pass degree equivalent to a Canadian high school graduate.”
According to Statistics Canada, between 1996 and 2001, Americans have done the best in Canada with only 23.2 percent living below the poverty line. It was 33.7 percent for Europe, 44.6 percent for Asia and 48.8 percent for Africa. This shouldn’t shock anybody because Canada and The United States share an almost identical western culture. Canada must slash family reunification. This program admits tens of thousands of unskilled labor each year and is bankrupting legal aid and bleeding Canada’s precious welfare benefits dry. Isn’t it sheer cruelty to deny immigrants the ability to reunite with family members?
Herbert Grubel is a professor of economics at Simon Fraser University and a fellow at the Fraser Institute. He is also a member of the advisory board of The Centre for Immigration Policy Reform. He recently wrote an article for “The National Post Newspaper” entitled “The invisible price tag of immigration”, in it he stated:
“There has been much huffing and puffing by politicians, the media and immigrant lobbyists about the government’s plan to reduce the number of parents and grandparents joining their immigrant offspring in Canada next year.
New data and studies show the extent of this fiscal burden; recent immigrants remit lower average incomes and tax payments than other Canadians, even 10 years after their arrival. At the same time, these immigrants on average absorb at least the same amount of social benefits as other Canadians.
As a result, $6,000 is annually transferred to the average immigrant at the expense of Canadian taxpayers. In 2006, the value of these transfers to all 2.7 million immigrants who arrived between 1987 and 2004 and still live in Canada came to $16.3-billion. Taking account of the 1.5 million immigrants who arrived since 2004, the fiscal burden comes to $25-billion in 2010. These costs represent a significant portion of the federal government’s $55-billion deficit projected for the fiscal year 2011.
Important here is the fact that parents and grandparents lower the observed average incomes of all immigrants. The reasons are obvious: parents and grandparents tend to be elderly, often cannot speak English or French and possess few marketable skills. At the same time, the number of parents and grandparents arriving as immigrants are high: 84,917, or 6.7% of the 1.3 million immigrants admitted to Canada from 2006 to 2010.”
This is a yearly intake of about 21,229 grandparents a year. Every 5 years, it’s 106,145 and every 10 years, it’s 212,290 elderly immigrants arriving on Canada’s shores. That’s an extra 2 million grandparents every 20 years. How has this affected Canada’s overall healthcare spending? In “The Trouble With Canada… Still! A Citizen Speaks Out William D Gairdner answered this question in Chapter 11: Medical Mediocrity: An Autopsy On The Canadian “Health Care” System/PG 284 è
“$84 billion in 1998, but 118% more – a cool $183.1 billion – in 2009, or $5,452 per capita.”
Harper’s total yearly budget sits at around $273 billion per year (1 trillion and change over Harper’s 4 year term in office). By 2019, the 2009 figure could be pushing the $300 billion level (if spending on healthcare continues to rise by 6 per cent a year and that is the conservative estimate). If it grows by the above amounts for the next ten years, Canada might be spending $350 to $365 billion on healthcare annually. What a wonderful idea: not only are immigrants welcome to Canada but the entire village too. Canada should easily be able to simply cram in another Manila, New Delhi and Shanghai into the already overcrowded cities of Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver (75% of all new citizens go to these 3 main cities).
If that seems absolutely crazy, that’s because it is. Nobody wants to think about these sorts of future projections based entirely on hard facts and reliable statistics. It’s better to simply sweep this unpleasantness under the carpet and think of something more pleasant…like beer, women or winning the lottery jackpot.
The government must also completely eliminate the temporary guest worker program. It’s sheer idiocy to bring in a quarter of a million temporary workers when there are one and a half million Canadians are out there looking for work. Binoy Thomas of The Weekly Voice might have felt bewildered and confused at times as Jason Kenney stated that:
It is a temporary program. This is not an immigration program. Everyone knows that. A lot of people wish it were something else but Canada – one of the reasons that our immigration program has worked for Canada and one of the reasons our immigration program is renowned around the world is because we have focused our economic programs on highly skilled, well – educated people from around the world that have flexible and adaptable skills and can make s significant contribution rather than what some countries have done which is simply to focus on low skilled, you know, workers.
And I also think it would be irresponsible for any government to shift our economic programs away from highly skilled, highly educated people to simply folks who are doing low skilled labour. Not that there’s any lack of – I don’t want to denigrate low skilled labour but we have the entire world to choose from in who we accept as immigrants to Canada and our experience has been pretty clear that those who succeed most are those with – who tend to have higher levels of education. So I don’t think we intend to change the focus.
Finally, let me just say…and on and on and on…
Canada needs to create a new right wing anti immigration party. How about The Christian Heritage Party or The Wild Rose Alliance? They’re new. Vote for them. Here’s some of what they would do if elected to parliament. The CHP’s website stated the following:
§ Canada has the world’s highest immigration rate, between 1990 and 2009 our population increased by 3.9 million. In the nine years between 1996 and 2005 well over 200,000 of those immigrants came to Canada from Muslim countries with high numbers of radical Islamists. These immigrants have received insufficient screening simply because the sheer size of the infrastructure required to screen such high numbers of immigrants does not exist in our Department of Immigration. Today, very few immigrants are even interviewed by a Canadian visa officer. The sheer weight of numbers means the vast majority of applicants are processed on paper only. With these kinds of numbers arriving within our borders there is also insufficient time to integrate these newcomers into the broader fabric of Canadian society.
Therefore, CHP Canada will immediately overhaul Canada’s current unsustainable policy of mass immigration to:
- Recognize that immigration is being used as a form of jihad designed to undermine Canada’s Judeo-Christian culture and law to replace it with Sharia law; CHP Canada would immediately implement a moratorium on immigration from any Muslim nation.
- Deny immigration to any person who holds an ideology known to pose a threat to Canadians and Canadian society.
- Increase the resources available for screening and reduce the levels of immigration and refugee claims to levels which can be adequately screened for security and criminal risks.
- Increase the use of detention for individuals whose identity is questionable, who pose a potential security threat, and those who have been ordered to leave;
- Continue to use the immigration security certificate which is a useful instrument for detaining and removing foreign terrorists;
- Track, stop, arrest, and if needed, deport individuals engaged in fundraising for the purpose of aiding and abetting terrorism.
The other parties are content to simply throw our English European cultural heritage in the garbage. Mass immigration destroys Canada’s fragile culture and that of labor markets. It has also exposed the subways and airports to potential attacks by religious fanatics bend on destroying Canadian society from within. Canada has become the butt of jokes south of the border.
“At 10 o’clock at night, the security between the United States and Canada is an orange rubber cone, just a big old orange rubber cone. It cannot talk. It cannot walk. It cannot shoot. It cannot tell a terrorist from a tow truck. It is just a big fat dumb rubber cone sitting in the middle of the road.” – Former U.S Senator, Byron Dorgan in 2001
The era of idealism can be directly traced back to Pierre Elliot Trudeau. His bubbly vision for Canada was heaped upon an unsuspecting public. He would lead the Liberal Party of Canada down the road to pure socialism. When did the government start looking at minorities as helpless welfare cases instead of as equal contributing members of Canadian society? Luckily there’s Michael Alexander to fill us all in. He holds a law degree from Columbia University and the University of Toronto and has studied political science and philosophy at the graduate level at both schools. In 2005, he released “COMPETING AGAINST AMERICA: Why Canada Has Fallen Behind In The Race For Talent And Wealth (And What To Do About It)”. He zeroed in on this development when he wrote:
“ So, from the start, Trudeau and the Liberals were committed to an egalitarian politics that aimed at redistributing income and leveling social and economic conditions across the country. During the 16 years that Liberals were in power, the egalitarian politics of the Just Society unfolded in three distinct stages. In the first stage (1968 to 1974), the Liberals slowly expanded the fiscal boundaries of the modern welfare state; transfers to the unemployed were increased to seniors under Old Age Security, the Canada Pension Plan and the Guaranteed Income Supplement, transfers to the poor under the Canada Assistance Plan, and transfers to everyone else under Medicare and Family Allowances. In the second stage (1975 – 1984), the government expanded the welfare state itself by creating new government programs and agencies, such as the Foreign Investment Review Agency and Petro – Canada, while allowing spending to increase vastly across the board on all existing programs. In the final stage (1978 – 1984), which overlapped the second, the government concentrated on changing the rules of the game in its relentless pursuit of equality.
During this period, it allowed group rights to replace individual rights as the basis for determining wage scales and employment opportunities in the federal government, and all federally regulated bodies, which included all of the country’s banks. This meant that pay equity schemes and quota systems for women and minorities were established for over 20% of the full – time Canadian workforce.
As liberal egalitarianism went into high gear in the late 1970s, Canadians were asked to endorse the new high – spending, interventionist Canadian state based on a compassionate concern for minority groups. The Just Society became the Compassionate Society. This transformation was dictated by the overriding imperative of helping the disadvantaged, which proved to be the enduring theme of the Just Society. It was also dictated by the changing base of Liberal support. When taxes and regulations began to multiply, the business community felt that the helping hand of the Just Society had become a heavy hand, and a similar feeling emerged among most Western Canadians when the federal government ignored their concerns about the practicality of bilingualism, the mounting debt and the government’s partial expropriation of the oil patch.
By the 1980s, the Liberals were forced to seek support from youth, women, minorities and the poor. If there was any doubt about this development, we need only consult the writings of Tom Axworthy, Trudeau’s Principle Secretary, who made the following statement in National Forum in November 1984:
By the mid – 1980s, the affluent, and especially members of
the business community, had deserted the Liberal Party in
droves. They had been replaced, however, by an almost
classic social demographic core of the young, women, ethnic
supporters, and the disadvantaged.
Under the influence of the politics of compassion, Trudeau’s Liberals had changed fundamentally the way in which Canada was governed. In 1968, they had began with a liberal agenda that guaranteed equal opportunity, but by the late 1970s, they had moved to a social democratic agenda that was designed to equalize outcomes in the name of helping disadvantaged minorities. They had moved us from a society where everyone would be given the freedom to define his or her standing in life to a society where selected groups would have their standing defined by government action. In the process, the Liberal party brought us many of the ills that have eroded our standard of living.
By spending recklessly, they burdened us with overwhelming public debt, high taxes, high inflation, high interest rates and low rates of investment in infrastructure and post – secondary education. And, by changing the basic rules of the game, they took us from a merit – based society, which gave everyone the incentive to produce wealth, to a politically correct society where individual justice and national prosperity were eclipsed in favor of an obsessive concern with the status of minority groups.”
Multiculturalism must also be scrapped for a melting pot society just like the Americans have. Since when did it become shameful to be a proud Canadian first? Doesn’t Canadian language and culture come first? In “THE GULF WITHIN”, Zuhair Kashmeri explains to Canadians exactly how this concept came about. He stated:
“Multiculturalism became official Canadian policy as part of the Trudeau government’s response to the challenge of Quebec. The Trudeau policy to counter demands for Quebec sovereignty was bilingualism and multiculturalism for all of Canada. Multiculturalism went several steps further than the American model of the melting pot, where all newcomers were blended together – a cultural imperialism of sorts. Canada decided to support immigrants in maintaining their culture.
Cynics, however, labeled the concept a ploy by the Liberal government of Pierre Trudeau, which saw the ethnics as a massive vote bank that needed to be nurtured so that the voting Liberal became a family tradition. When Brain Mulroney and the Tories assumed power in September, 1984, they were no different. They decided to take multiculturalism several steps further and not only passed the Canadian Multiculturalism Act, but also set up a separate department for multiculturalism. If Pierre Trudeau would be remembered for expounding on the multicultural mosaic, the Tories figured they should be remembered for enshrining it in law.”
Will new Canadians ever feel like true Canadians? They are aggressively encouraged to preserve their cultural heritage. All the tribal dirges such as polygamy, female genital mutilation and gender discrimination are legitimized. Subway travelers retreat and withdraw into the comfort of portable music devices. Personal space is invaded by foreign blabbing of Mandarin, Urdu, Tagalong, Hindi, Arabic, Korean and Spanish. English and French is rarely ever spoken. Why is this happening? In “Who Killed Canadian History?”, J.L Granatstein stated that:
“The federal government, committed to a multiculturalism that is enshrined in the Constitution as a fundamental characteristic of the nation, promotes a very weak nationalism. Remain a Somali, a Taiwanese, a Ukrainian, or a Bolivian, the message goes, and you will be just as good a Canadian as everyone else. In effect, the message is that Canada (or English Canada, at least) has no culture. Moreover, the federal, provincial, and municipal governments will give any group money to preserve its original culture, heritage, and language. In Quebec, in sharp contrast, the provincial government controls immigration policy and follows a deliberate anti Canadian approach as it half – heartedly tries to assimilate immigrants into francophone culture.
Unthinking Canadians complacently assumed that our schools and our society had turned them all into good, bland, peace – loving Canadians. But a combination of federal multiculturalism, ignorance of an understanding of their new homeland, and the practices of progressive education had prevented them from becoming what they out to have become: Canadians.”
The era of multiculturalism, of pandering to the ethnic vote is over. Canadians are sick and tired of being guests in their own country. They are angry and tired of watching their culture eroded by government programs that promote one hundred different ethnic street festivals. Where’s the Canadian street festival celebration? Where’s our beaver and moose maple syrup and beer cultural festival? A Globe and Mail Public Opinion Poll that began on October 1st 2010 and ended on June 12th 2011 paints a very telling tale. Of the 12,402 Canadians that were asked: “Is multiculturalism a failed experiment in Canada?” 8244 people voted “yes”. That’s 66% of the total. Only 4158 voted “no” or 34% of the total.
Luckily, most new Canadians try to quickly integrate. However, it doesn’t help that the government of Canada is playing Russian roulette with our cultural heritage all in the reckless pursuit of the ethnic vote. Canadian history is being wiped out in the name of the political correctness, that which has poisoned Canadian society from inside. Instead of being united and strong, Canada is dividend and weak. It all started in the public schools. Elisa Lochan, a journalist for The South Asian Generation Next Newspaper wrote an absolutely brave and heartbreaking personal article that she entitled “Tolerance”. In it, she explained that:
“As a child I didn’t think much about identity, nationality or heritage, all things that separate us from one another. Other than skin colour, I didn’t really know that anything else was different about my friends. It wasn’t until we were taught tolerance that we all began to look at each other differently.
In my grade three class most of us were first or second generation Canadian. We were given an assignment about our backgrounds. We learned about each others’ languages, cultural garb, religions and holidays.
At the time I didn’t know it, but in learning about my background I also learned all the things I wasn’t. Now we were being shown all the ways we were supposedly different. There was no assignment about how we had grown up together finding all the ways we were the same, that despite the differences we were growing up and being educated in a Canadian society.
It wasn’t long after that my best friend told me I was “Paki”, not that she meant any harm, but it was our way of conforming our eight year minds to what we learned. She and I worked together to get new best friends because we were tolerant but different. She was white so we found her a new white best friend and me, a brown one.
We all started building cliques with definitions of who fits and who doesn’t. We were all friends but only those that fit were allowed into the inner circle. We changed to meet those requirements, even then it wasn’t always enough.
Looking back, I wish we never learned the lesson of tolerance because it didn’t teach us acceptance. It didn’t allow us to be the children we were and still accepted by our heritage and each other.”
―If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them. We should therefore claim, in the name of tolerance, the right not to tolerate the intolerant.
Lowell Green is a veteran broadcaster on 580 AM radio. Lowell’s call in talk show (1-800-580-2372) runs from Monday to Friday from 10am to Noon. He literally declared a country wide red alert in his 2006 gem; “HOW the granola – crunching, tree – hugging thug huggers are wrecking our country!”. He rightly warned Canadians that:
“Our reluctance to teach our children Canadian history, the gradual erosion of many of our traditions, such as Christmas, in our public schools and institutions, the terrible neglect of our military and our proud military traditions are only some of the more public manifestations of our disappearing national identity.
It’s hard to believe that what is behind this anti – Western sentiment, but it is fascinating, isn’t it, that a growing number of scientists claim it is this deep – seated hatred of Western culture and capitalism that is really behind Kyoto?
Frankly, the more I look around the more convinced I become that I prefer the old Canada that was not only brave, really brave, but damn proud of it too! Imagine that! Proud of being perched at the northern end of the underground railway, the promised land for thousands of fleeing slaves. Even when my children were growing up, we all knew that this was the country that captured Vimy Ridge, that it was we who stood fast against the deadly mustard gas at the Somme; ours was the country that helped to liberate Italy, whose brave soldiers advanced further against the enemy on D-Day than those of either Britain or the US. We knew that it was Canadians who liberated Holland and were – and still are – loved for it. We knew we had the world’s best hockey players, that Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone here and made the first long – distance call between Brantford and Paris, Ontario. We were proud of the fact that it was in Canada that Jackie Robinson prepared himself to break the colour barrier in the big leagues.
We even took pride in knowing we had beaten the Americans in the War of 1812. We knew all of that and a great deal more. We thought we had a wonderful heritage and culture and it wasn’t until Pierre Trudeau and his camp followers informed us otherwise that we realized how mistaken we had been.
And so the “self – chosen ones” inform us smugly, in order to create this brave new Canada we must first tear down that which we had before and rebuild something far better.
The tearing down seems to be coming along quite nicely. It’s the rebuilding part that worries me.”
Why is it so dangerous to base a country’s identity on such a fluffy concept? Bruce Bawer hit the nail on the head in the run away global best seller “While Europe Slept”. In it, he stated that:
“To discourage children and grandchildren from identifying with the country of their birth and from bearing allegiance to its values is to encourage them to look elsewhere for something to identify with. Such multicultural conduct isn’t an act of generosity – it’s an act of cultural self – hatred and cultural suicide.”
Down at Victoria Park and Lawrence, new drivers can take their computer G1 tests in Mandarin, Arabic, and even Urdu. Of course all the road signs in Ontario are written in good old English. The Christmas tree is now the holiday tree and Canada is no longer an English and French speaking Christian nation…Canadians are apparently now citizens of the world. Canadian history is being systematically cleansed from all our schools.
“Ontario’s appalling 1993 Guidelines for Ethnocultural Equity in School Boards complains that “Ontario’s school system has been and continues to be mainly European in perspective. The prevalence of our cultural tradition limits students’ opportunities to benefit from the contributions of people from a variety of backgrounds.”
“Our civilization and culture is Western, and there is no reason we should be ashamed of it or not wish to reach our students about it. Canadians are the inheritors of Greek and Roman traditions and the British and French experience, and the West is the dominant civilization in the world today in part because its values have been tested and found true. To pretend that simple relativism should apply in the schools and that immigrants, who have come here because they want to buy into our civilization and value system, should be told to retain their own culture is wrongheaded in the extreme. It also discriminates against newcomers by systemically patronizing and marginalizing them.”
Quebec forces immigrants to assimilate. All signage by law must be in French and nobody there will even speak to anyone else unless it’s in French. Take a trip to Montreal and try speaking English and the result is angry silent stares. Quebec defends its culture. Will the rest of Canada do the same before it’s too late?
“In October 1996, Heritage Canada released a report on multiculturalism that found much public dissatisfaction with the concept. There is, the government was told unmistakably, a backlash from vast numbers of conservative – minded Canadians who see multiculturalism as divisive, and who fear for social cohesion in light of the demands of ethnic and linguistic groups. So, to policy makers in Ottawa, what was the best way to counter these perceptions? Not to integrate newcomers; not to teach recent arrivals in Canada about the heritage of the country to which they have come. No, the key point was that the government should promote a “new” Canadian identity based on justice, peace, and “compassionate solidarity” rather than on history and geographical considerations! As Liberal multicultural minister Hedy Fry said, multiculturalism is about “the core Canadian values of fairness and respect, compassion and equality,” about building bridges between communities and individuals of all backgrounds.
In other words, more bafflegab. The federal government, the provinces, and the school boards simply fail to realize that the backlash against multiculturalism comes from the widespread realization that it will erode the history and the heritage that Canadians share. Canadians want justice, peace, and compassionate solidarity, to be sure, but they also instinctively believe that they have their own history and heritage. They see no reason why it should be eliminated by government fiat for a misguided policy that tries to make everyone feel good. As the teachers at one high school said, the pressure is on to teach everyone’s history but our own.”
In 1923, Frederick Grant Banting and Charles Best were credited with the invention of Insulin. This amazing feat of medical ingenuity was accomplished inside a research lab at the University of Toronto. Montreal’s Maurice Richard (nicknamed “the Rocket”, was the first hockey player to record a fifty-goal season. Richard was also the first hockey player to score more than 500 goals in his career. He would finish with a total of 544 goals. In 1986, Rob Angel of Vancouver, B.C, developed Pictionary and by 1992, had sold more than 15 million copies. It was in 1957 that, the Avro Canada Ltd created the CF – 102 Arrow. With a record shattering speed of MACH 2+, it turned out to be the fastest fighter jet in the world. It was a mark of Canadian engineering brilliance and genius.
Canadian voters are slowly waking up to the horrible reality of yesterday’s disastrous policies. The Liberal Party of Canada was recently decimated in the national elections. They lost official opposition status and were replaced by Jack Layton’s socialists, “The New Democratic Party”. Michael Ignatieff ‘s poor showing reflected Canadians discontent for The Liberal strategy of being everything to everyone. It’s the liberal perspective and it’s out of touch with modern reality.
“ And it’s from a liberal perspective that we can see what is perhaps the greatest problem with Ignatieff’s multiculturalism: it fails to address how the demand for equal approval can block human development. This demand prevents us from questioning different commitments and beliefs. For example, we cannot ask whether a life devoted to cross – dressing deserves the same approval as one devoted to eradicating injustice. But can we really believe that Rue Paul is the moral equal of Martin Luther King? In a world where equal approval is required, we cannot ask that question for fear of offending Rue Paul or his fans and, indeed, every citizen who believes in the right to equal approval. What this means is that we no longer have the freedom to discuss what it means to lead a good life, an inquiry that requires us to ask whether some ways of life are better than others. Properly understood, Ignatieff’s politics lead to wholesale political correctness and the end to liberal democracy’s greatest claim to fame – freedom of thought.
As we’ve seen in the discussion of “employment equity”, multiculturalism has undermined the equal opportunity ideal by creating an atmosphere where employment systems in the public sector, and in some cases, the private sector, have placed considerations relating to race and ethnicity ahead of criteria based on merit. If Canada hopes to become truly competitive, it must make sure that it’s getting the most out of its people, and the only way to do that is to ensure that public and private employers focus on matching people’s talents, with the work that must be performed. By diminishing the focus on talent, employment equity is taking us down the road to a society that is politically correct, but that fails to maximize its individual and collective economic potential.
The politics of multiculturalism also eat away at the social conditions that promote national prosperity. The project of recommitting Canada to the equal opportunity ideal as the necessary means to achieving our economic potential will require all Canadians to focus on the task of cultivating their own talents and the talents of those around them, with a view to creating an atmosphere where decisions regarding advancement in schools, community associations and the workplace are based on merit. Yet the greater Canadian problem continues to be how to manifest a national will in the face of regional and linguistic divisions, and the omnipresent influence of American society. That problem has been exacerbated by multiculturalism, which invites us to divide ourselves in an almost infinite number of ways.
Can we manifest the national will we need to build a just and prosperous society when the government asks us to define ourselves in relation to over 190 different ethnic categories at last count? This problem is made all the worse by the conflicts that necessarily arise when groups compete for public entitlements and recognition. Multiculturalism undermines the national cohesion that we need to succeed in a fiercely competitive global economy.”
All across Europe, people are waking up to the horrible realities of multiculturalism. Europeans have started to feel like strangers in their own lands. They have started voting for new parties and the top three leaders have made an about face on this important issue. Here are some of their comments:
“Our Muslim compatriots must be able to practice their religion, as any citizen can, but we in France do not want people to pray in an ostentatious way in the street. If you come to France, you accept to melt into a single community, which is the national community. And if you do not want to accept that, you cannot be welcome in France”.
French President Nicolas Sarkozy said in a nationally televised debate that multiculturalism was a “failure,” warning that such a concept fostered extremism.
” We don’t tolerate racism in our society carried out by white people; we shouldn’t tolerate extremism carried out by other people. It certainly means changing the practice, changing the groups you fund, the people you engage …the people you let into the country. It needs a whole new way of thinking.”
Stated British Prime Minister David Cameron last month in his first speech on Islamic radicalization.
“ We are a country which, at the beginning of the 1960s, actually brought guest workers to Germany. Now they live with us and we lied to ourselves for a while, saying that they won’t stay and that they will have disappeared again one day. That’s not the reality. This [multicultural] approach — saying that we simply live side by side and are happy about each other — this approach has failed, utterly failed. “
German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on October 16 at a meeting of her Christian Democratic party in the city of Potsdam.
Even the most liberal and most open-minded society of the Netherlands has begun to change. After the brutal murders of the politician Pim Fortyn and the artist Theo Van Gogh (a direct descendant of the great 19TH century painter), Ayan Hirshi Ali was forced to flee the Dutch parliament for the United States (she was threatened with death for making a film critical of Islam). Lorenzo Vidino is a law graduate and a frequent traveler to Europe. He is also a terrorism expert at the Investigative project, the largest private data-gathering center on Islamic terrorism in the United States. In 2006, he published “AL QAEDA IN EUROPE: The New Battleground of International Jihad”. Here’s an excerpt about the dire situation that Holland was facing after the van Gogh murder:
“In the tense days following the assassination, mosques and Islamic schools were firebombed by angry Dutch youngsters; a poll conducted after the attack revealed that 40 percent of the Dutch hoped that Muslims “no longer felt at home” in Holland. In retaliation, groups of Dutch Muslims attacked churches, intensifying the spiral of hatred.
Ignored by the political elite, The Dutch people finally voted in Geert Wilder’s Freedom party as part of a coalition government. Suddenly intense debates on identity politics began to rage inside the Dutch legislature. This jolted sleepy Dutch citizens into a full-fledged uproar. The political elite started losing voters in droves. They quickly learned to work with people that they didn’t necessarily agree with. It’s called democracy and it’s a beautiful thing to have.
The ruling Dutch government was quite literally forced to change over night or else the Freedom party wouldn’t vote for their yearly budget. Mid evil and tribal cultures were clashing with the liberal and open Dutch society and had caused a civil war. Under intense pressure, the Dutch MPs did an about face on these very contentious issues.
At the top of the list of concerns was immigration, especially Islamic immigration.
“ The government shares the social dissatisfaction over the multicultural society model and plans to shift priority to the values of the Dutch people. In the new integration system, the values of the Dutch society play a central role. With this change, the government steps away from the model of a multicultural society. “
Dutch Interior Minister Piet Hein Donner, presentation to parliament on June 16.
Multiculturalism has been a spectacular failure just about everywhere. Without a national identity, students are emerging from Canada’s schools with mentally fractured views of the world. New Canadians learn all about Quebec culture, history and language. Is it any wonder that the top performers emerge from Quebec? Lucien Bute and Jean Pascal are titleholders in the light heavyweight boxing division. Jean St Pierre is the king of the Ultimate Fighting League.
There is fierce competition in Quebec politics as the fringe party ACQ took the balance of power from the Bloq in 2005. Quebec banned the Sikh Kirpan from the national assembly and kicked a Muslim woman out of a free French class because she wanted a female teacher instead of a male one. They aren’t swayed by political correctness and have never signed the charter of multiculturalism. They know who they are and assert themselves with confidence. However, they also discriminate against English speaking Canada. No English signage is allowed. This has fractured Canada even further. The result is that Canadians now make twenty percent less than Americans. A lack of unity means a lack of confidence. The QMI Agency revealed a startling reality in a recent survey of high school and post secondary school students. The 24 Hour Newspaper published the findings. Here they are:
“When thinking of the future, today’s high school and post secondary students want to own a home, have a good job and spend time with family and friends, but they won’t be taking many risks to make it happen, a new survey shows.
The Canada 2020 survey also reveals travel is low on their list of priorities and only 25% would consider becoming an entrepreneur (60% said they will never start their own business), while 60% said they welcome change in all its forms.
“The survey results show the group to be idealistic and optimistic and confident in their abilities to accomplish goals, but the majority of students are not entrepreneurs and don’t believe they will be millionaires,” said Suzanne Tyson, president of Studentawards Inc., which did the survey.
“We found these students are looking for happiness in life, not financial riches, because they place low importance on values such as collaboration, innovation and leadership, and high importance on compassion, integrity and optimism.”
The online survey questioned 1,000 high school students and 1,500 post secondary students throughout Canada. The results are accurate to within 5% percentage points, 19 times out of 20. The survey asked students about their current and future (2020) beliefs on social issues, employment, technology, media, as well as their values and life priorities.
70% of students are optimistic and believe they will create their own destiny and their top priorities will remain unchanged in 10 years. As well, 60% said their values and beliefs are very different from their parents’ generations.”
Canadians need to work together as a nation to create new companies. These corporations also need to be protected from foreign influence. They are not simply being created for the sole purpose of being sold to foreign investors. Canadian jobs are for Canadian workers. Canadian culture need not be dismantled piecemeal and re engineered beyond recognition. A common saying by the political elite has been that we must adhere to our international obligations.
Michael Byers holds the Canada Research Chair in Global Politics and International Law at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. In 2007 he released the much heralded “What is Canada for? INTENT FOR A NATION: A relentlessly optimistic manifesto for Canada’s role in the world”. He shined a bright light on the events that are on the verge of changing Canada forever. Here’s what Michael’s investigations revealed:
“Indeed, over half of all manufacturing in Canada is foreign owned, a level more than three times higher than in any other major industrialized country. And in the first six months of 2006 alone, forty-nine major Canadian companies with a combined value of $93 billion were sold to foreign investors. The list of recent sell – offs is a roll call of leading Canadian brands.
In addition to Fairmount Hotels and the Bay, two of Canada’s largest mining companies are gone: Falconbridge to Switzerland’s Xstrata; Inco to Brazil’s CVRD. Hamilton – based steelmaker Dofasco was sold to Luxembourg’s Arcelor SA; Ghelph – based Sleeman Breweries to Japan’s Sapporo Brewers. Vincor, our largest winemaker, went to New York – based Constellation brands; Thornhill’s ATI Technologies, a world leader in the production of graphics chips, to California – based Advanced Micro Devices; Montreal –based Domtar, the last large Canadian owned producer of paper, to Weyerhaeuser, the U.S – based forestry giant. In British Columbia, Intrawest, the proprietor of Whistler Blackcomb ski resort, went to New York – based Fortress Investment Group. Just think about it: even the principle site of the 2010 Winter Olympics now belongs to foreigners.”
It’s not as if other countries don’t restrict foreign investment. In January 2006, the Bush administration gave permission for Dubai Ports World, the world’s largest marine terminal operator, to purchase six major port operations in the United States. News of the deal sparked a firestorm of protest in Congress, where the fact that Dubai World Ports is based in the United Arab Emirates was cited as a cause for concern about possible links with terrorism. As a result of the pressure, the company eventually agreed to sell the assets to a U.S – based investment group. In 2005, China National Offshore Oil Corporation made a bid to purchase Unocal and was also blocked by congress. The company was eventually sold to another U.S oil company.
The potential pitfalls of foreign investment go far beyond security concerns. Such investment can erode a country’s domestic tax base, as profits are shifted offshore through creative accounting, including by overpricing goods and services supplied by foreign companies that belong to the same proprietor. Foreign – owned companies are also less likely to act as good corporate citizens. They have less incentive to invest in the arts, sponsor local sports teams, fund scholarships or encourage workers and managers to play active roles in the local community. Although some foreign – owned companies do make token gestures, they are unlikely to have the same loyalties as domestically owned firms. Being inherently mobile, they find it difficult to justify the kinds of long – term investments that would strengthen the societies in which they operate. For the same reason, foreign – owned companies are more likely to push for lower taxes and less stringent regulations, even if those taxes and regulations are a necessary part of maintaining the quality of life, education and health care that attracts and maintains high – quality jobs.”
Today, when Canadian business leaders speak about the issues of public policy, it is important to question whose interests they are serving. Many of them now work for foreign – owned companies whose presence in Canada is not unlike a one – night stand. If they can get a better deal elsewhere, they’ll be gone tomorrow.
Other industrialized countries realize this. Most European countries have stringent procedures for reviewing foreign buyouts, ensuring that industries considered essential to their societies, such as utilities and transportation companies, remain under majority domestic control. Japan, the world’s second largest economy, is even more restrictive. Only in Britain is global capitalism as unrestrained as it is in Canada. To some degree, Canadian voters have themselves to blame. Following the sale the Bay and Fairmount Hotels, the Economist said: “In many other countries, the sale of national heirlooms would spark fierce opposition. Not in Canada.”
Well, not yet. But remember, it took just ten years for Pierre Trudeau to cut foreign control of the Canadian economy almost in half. All that is needed is for the Canadians to realize the scope of the corporate sellout that’s underway and the relative ease with which we could stop it. Ten years? When do we start?”
Good paying jobs won’t be available for young, ambitious Canadians because the head offices will be inNew York,StockholmandTokyo. Their Canadian subsidiaries are just another profit center. Wages will be depressed in order to squeeze the maximum amount of profits out of them.
The average price of a home inTorontois close to half a million dollars. Stop mass immigration into the cities and housing prices will become more affordable. First time homebuyers need a break. They already have to pay back crushing student loans.
Harper’s Conservative government should pass an “Invest in Canada Act”, forcing the CPP to invest up to 2 billion dollars each year in start-ups. This money should be invested in venture capital projects. Areas for consideration should be software, biotechnology, wireless communications technology and green energy projects. Here’s a big idea: Invest in Canadians because Canadians live in Canada.
The clay footed managers of the pension world need to descend from their ivory towers. They’ll be distracted just long enough from caviar and corvettes and forced to find creative ways to boost Canada’s lagging productivity. For one entire year, they should go to a local gym and eat at Mc Donalds. No more fast cars and expensive restaurants. These things should be earned by helping to create the companies of the future. Bonuses and incentives packages should be designed with that in mind.
Aspiring Canadians need guidance and expertise on how to take businesses to the next step. Institutional investors should be visible and to offer out a helping hand. It should be a mixture of hands on professional assistance with promotions, marketing, sales and modest infusions of long-term investment capital. The 21st Century belongs toCanada and the slogan should be:
“Making dreams come alive by investing in people’s visions of tomorrow”.
Why aren’t Canadian entrepreneurs getting their ideas properly funded? Will everyone have to go to CBC’s The Dragon’s Den with cap in hand? Mirroring the big banks, they give money to ventures that have already achieved substantial profits. It’s very market oriented and many aspiring entrepreneurs and brilliant inventors get disgraced and humiliated right off the show. Even teenagers haven’t been immune. The point is this: not every idea makes money immediately and patience is key to developing young business talent. In 2001, Henry Mintzberg’s released the compilation “MEMOS T O T H E P R I M E MINISTER: What Canada Could Be in the 21st Century”.
David Pecaut holds a master’s degree from the Universityof Sussexand is president of iFormation Group, where he creates new business models for the Internet space and has co chaired the Canadian E-Business Opportunities roundtable. His memo to the Prime Minister was entitled: The Internet Economy: The Second Inning of a Nine – Inning Game. This might just be the reason that the Yanks outclassed the Canucks:
“Institutional investors in Canadacontinue to under – invest in venture capital relative to their American counterparts. In 1999, U.S pension funds contributed approximately $15.8 billion in new venture capital, representing 23% of new funds raised; meanwhile, Canadian Pension funds contributed $134 million, representing only 5.6% of new funds raised.”
If yearly contributions matched those in the United States, these amounts would rise to about $600 million per year. There’s always a strong demand for great high quality Canadian made products. Fortunately, the brilliant minds at the Canada Goose Company invented the Canada Goose winter jacket. It retails for around $500 and is a top seller inCanada and in overseas markets. Workers make $20 an hour, enough to buy a house, a car and have a family. The jacket is made of high quality goose feathers, which are warm and just perfect for harsh Canadian winters. Once created, companies like Canada Goose should stay Canadian owned.
Canadian jobs are for Canadian workers. The Harper government should also introduce the Protect Canadian Assets Investment Act. Foreign investors want to completely buy out corporateCanada.Canada is in danger of becoming a satellite state. Owned and operated from abroad means important decisions will no longer be made in the downtown offices ofToronto,Vancouver orMontreal. They will more likely be made fromNew York,Berlin andTokyo.Canada should put a halt to this sell off immediately.
Trudeau’s Foreign Investment Review Agency lowered foreign ownership of Canadian firms from 37.4 per cent in the 1970s to 21.4 percent. It was replaced in 1985 by Brian Mulroney’s Investment Canada. This firm gave the green light to the foreign takeover of Canadian industry once again. Instead of monitoring, reviewing or regulating this activity, it actually invited suitors to swoop in and acquire prime Canadian firms.
It’s one of the few policies that Pierre got right in what was otherwise a very culturally destructive series of terms in office for Canada. In order to facilitate the mentality that leads to new ideas, Canada should focus its attention on its entrepreneurial capabilities. The government should invest much more in the Liberal arts. These programs train students how to think critically. America has about 900 Liberal arts colleges compared to only about 3 in Canada. New ideas will lead to innovations; which are the main creators of new wealth. Creativity and critical thinking are the traits that push people towards innovation. These are the main ingredients that drive the new global information economy.
Citizens of advanced nations that are bestowed with a strong sense of national identity do the best economically and socially. America now leads the entire world in these critically important areas. However, the Americans have also been caught up in a tangled mess of white guilt and shameless apologizing. In “THE CLASH OF CIVILIZATIONS AND THE REMAKING OF NEW WORLD ORDER”, Samuel Huntington explained that:
“The multicultural trend was also manifested in a variety of legislation that followed the civil rights acts of the 1960s, and in the 1990s the Clinton administration made the encouragement of diversity one of its major goals. The contrast with the past is striking. The Founding Fathers saw diversity as a reality and as a problem: hence the national motto, e pluribus unum, chosen by a committee of the Continental Congress consisting of Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and John Adams. Later, political leaders who also were fearful of the dangers of racial, sectional, ethnic, economic, and cultural diversity (which, indeed, produced the largest war of the century between 1815 and 1914), responded to the call of “bring us together,” and made the promotion of national unity their central responsibility.
“The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing as a nation at all,” warned Theodore Rooselvelt, “would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities.”
It’s shameful that instead of promoting Canadian culture and heritage and sharing Canada’s greatness with new citizens; the government does everything possible to encourage people to continue living life as though they never left their home country.
J.L Granastein zoned in of this issue in a chapter dubbed “Multicultural Mania”. His well thought out solution stated:
“ The aim of every Canadian and of all levels of government should be to welcome immigrants and turn them into Canadian citizens as quickly as possible by giving them the cultural knowledge they need to understand and to thrive in our society. If immigrants feel the need to associate with others like themselves and to maintain their ties to the Old country, more power to them. But they and their communities must accept that, in Canada, political opponents and people with cultural and religious differences do not kill each other or try to censor others into silence. They must also come to understand that if they wish to honour the Old country’s ways and practices, they must do it themselves. They should pay for language and heritage instruction on their own, and not one cent of federal, provincial, or municipal government money should be devoted to fostering the retention of their cultures.
The state should spend its limited funds on helping newcomers to adapt to Canadian society by teaching them the basic knowledge, the symbols, and the ideas that literate, culturally aware Canadians understand and use to communicate with each other. To do anything else condemns immigrants to isolation, to low – paying jobs, to the expanding ghetto of the ill – paid and uneducated. Instead of practicing what the Toronto Board of Education does – grafting multicultural content onto all subject areas – the schools should teach more about Canada, something that might actually be of use to the students.
Teach immigrants and their children to read and speak the country’s official languages; train them in the requirements of Canadian citizenship and, where necessary, explain how a democracy functions; instruct them, especially their offspring, in Canada’s history and in the roots of our nationhood; give them the cultural capital that literate and aware Canadian share. Make them good Canadians, in other words. Do not turn immigrants loose to fend for themselves, to struggle alone to master the strange ways of a new and bewildering complex society. Do not tell them, do not even imply, that they can stay East Indian, Somali, Jamaican, German, Chinese, or Chilean and succeed in Canada. Their children might integrate and do well, simply because of the enormous assimilative powers of North American society, but the first generation, if they choose to remain apart, cannot.
I believe that current multiculturalism policies and use of government funds promote such separateness. This is not only a shameless waste of tax dollars – one undertaken for partisan political, not national, advantage – but a terrible squandering of human resources. Even worse, the policies of multiculturalism have created the idea among immigrants (and even native born citizens, especially in francophone Quebec) that Canada, and in particular English – speaking Canada, has no culture and no nationality of its own. If it did, they ask with some justification, why would the government not try to show it to them? Why else would it fund newcomers to preserve their old ways?”
Deep culture is something much more than the name brand on sneakers or a popular jacket. It’s something people are quite prepared to jealously defend and even die for. In 1952, Pakistan declared Urdu as the state’s main language. This alienated East Pakistanis where Bengali was the main way of communications. Violence erupted into a civil war and East Pakistan broke free to become the independent state of Bangladesh. Alima Hotakie understands culture much better than most of the politically correct elite, the journalists and politicians in Canada. Writing in “THE EAST TORONTO OBSERVER”, she politely reminded every Canadian citizen that:
“Language is an integral part of one’s identity. It’s not only a means of communication and expression, but also a marker of distinction.”
In a chapter entitled “THE ILLUSION OF MULTICULTURALISM”, Daniel Stoffman quite accurately stated that:
“ Language is much more than a way of communicating; it is a way of thinking, or organizing perception, of looking at the world. It’s the basis of cultural identity.”
The lack of language skills is creating an economic underclass of citizens. According to a 2002 census, there were approximately 130,000 people living in Ottawa that don’t speak English or French. Nicole Labrie is a supervisor in Family Health at the Region of Peel. In an article in the Weekly Voice Newspaper entitled “Breast Feeding Instructions In Punjabi”, she stated that:
“Punjabi is the second most commonly spoken language in Peel”
There’s an old saying that is making a huge comeback across Europe, North America and Australia. “When in Rome, do as the Romans do”. The faster immigrants learn the ways of the dominant culture, the faster they can adapt and become contributing members to it. There is also a point where it’s an insult to keep people thinking they are immigrants and not full-fledged Canadians. It’s racist to encourage new Canadians not to assimilate.
In “THE TROUBLE WITH CANADA… STILL! A CITIZEN SPEAKS OUT”, William D. Gairdner explained that:
“For thousands of years, rulers, kingdoms, and states – governments large and small – have understood very well how human social bonding works (affiliation to the maximum number of common cultural denominators). So they have strived to ensure their people share a common deep culture, and have struggled against all threats to the unity this produces. They have understood that you can enjoy lots of ethnic diversity within an existing deep cultural unity, but you cannot derive cultural unity from diversity. That’s why for most nations in history, assimilation has been the key to unity: get newcomers to forget their old ways and adopt the new host culture.”
English is one of the world’s most powerful languages. Great visionaries, laureates, poets, and intellectuals have always exploited its awesome power for the betterment of society. Best selling Author Samuel Huntington explained why this is in the groundbreaking “THE CLASH OF CIVILIZATIONS AND THE REMAKING OF WORLD ORDER”. In it he stated:
“English is the world’s way of communicating interculturally just as the Christian calendar is the world’s way of tracking time, Arabic numbers are the world’s way of counting, and the metric system is, for the most part, the world’s way of measuring. The use of English in this way, however is intercultural communication; it presupposes the existence of other cultures.”
There are more than enough highly educated Canadians that can see through these complex mazes of smoke and mirrors and will eventually set things straight once more. It’s only a matter of time!!!

Immigrant Population By Place of Birth and Period of Immigration
Until the early 1990s, most immigrants coming to Canada were from the United Kingdom, Europe and the United States, with much smaller numbers coming from China and India. As the following figures graphically illustrate, those days are long gone. All figures are from Statistics Canada, 2006 Census.
Birthplace Immigrated Immigrated
Before 1991 After 1991
United Kingdom 515,135 64,485
Italy 289,820 7,035
United States 168,840 81,695
Germany 149,020 22,385
Poland 123,435 47,055
Portugal 136,945 13,445
Netherlands 102,415 9,580
France 44,685 34,860
Greece 69,385 3,735
Ukraine 23,180 36,285
Hungary 39,080 6,855
Ireland (Eire) 20,340 2,030
Austria 19,205 1,590
Belgium 16,625 3,590
Switzerland 13,760 6,195
Other 113,760 185,695
TOTAL 1,845,630 (60%) 529,515 (22%)
Amazing isn’t it? Prior to 1991, 1,824,830 immigrants arrived in Canada from the UK, Europe and the US. Since 1991, that number has dropped to 510,000.
Now let us have a look at another set of figures:
Birthplace Immigrated Immigrated
Before 1991 After 1991
China 133,910 333,025
India 156,830 286,855
Philippines 107,765 195,425
Hong Kong 107,925 107,505
Vietnam 107,760 52,410
Pakistan 19,760 113,520
Jamaica 84,345 39,070
Iran 24,285 67,800
Taiwan 12,670 52,530
Afghanistan 4,215 31,950
Iraq 6,420 27,120
Bangladesh 4,325 28,900
Algeria 3,615 28,645
Ethiopia 5,460 14,255
Somalia 3,240 16,270
Other 464,700 502,420
Total 1,247,225 (40%) 1,897,700 (78%)
You cannot help but notice that, among other things, China has become a greater source of immigrants to Canada since 1991 than all of the UK and Europe combined.
To get an even more revealing look at what is happening, let’s examine the most recent numbers from non – European sources of immigration to Canada in the ten years from 1996 to 2006.
Birthplace Total Immigration 1996-2006
Hong Kong 40,935
Other non Western immigration 1996-2006 274,720
Total non – western immigration 1996-2006 1,266,165 (82.5%)
Now let’s compare the non – European data with immigration from the Western nations, which historically produced the largest number of immigrants.
Birthplace Total immigration 1996-2006
United Kingdom 43,855
United States 62,925
Ireland (Eire) 1,210
Other Western Countries 41,955
Total Western countries 268,525 (17.5%)
As you can see, immigration from non – western nations for the ten year period between 1996 and 2006 is more than four times higher than from Western nations.
Mayday! Mayday! Curb immigration. Stop multiculturalism. Or it’s the end of the Canada we Know! The Source: Where are today’s immigrants coming from? /PG 57-PG 62
By that magic year 2031, fully 63 per cent ofToronto’s population will be visible minorities – inVancouverthe ratio will be 59 per cent, inMontreal31 per cent.Ottawa’s visible minority population will increase from the present 10 percent to 36 percent. It is important to realize that we are doing something inCanadano other nation on earth is even contemplating. This country is undergoing a societal and demographics evolution that is much more rapid and profound than is taking place in any other nation on earth.
For example, while only ten percent of Americans today are foreign born, here inCanadathe foreign – born figure is about 20 per cent. While someUScities have large foreign – born populations, none of them approach what is occurring inTorontoandVancouver. Americans often joke thatMiami’s first language is Spanish, but in fact only about 36 percent of its population was born outside theUnited States, compared to nearly 46 per cent ofToronto’s population and almost 40 per cent inVancouverin 2006.
The Significance of this is even greater sinceTorontoandVancouverare by far the largest cities in English Canada and pretty much determine which political party governs the country.

Immigration Watch Canada
Contact Your MP, MLA and Municipal Councilors
Please write, phone or visit your MP, MLA (MPP), or City Councillors. A visit is the most effective. Take someone with you as a witness to what is said.
It is important that Canadians tell elected officials that Canada’s current immigration policies are in need of major reform. For example, present immigration levels have to be reduced dramatically. Immigration Watch Canada believes in a major reduction from the 250,000+ present levels to approximately the 50,000 per year level. We are not advocating abolition of immigration.
Immigration is primarily a federal responsibility; so concerned Canadians should contact federal politicians first. However, provinces have a constitutional right to be involved in immigration, so provincial politicians are part of the problem too. When any politician (federal, provincial or municipal) preaches unsustainable growth or a provincial or municipal politician says immigration is a federal issue and beyond their jurisdiction, they have to be challenged. These people won’t hesitate to look for federal money or federal moral support. Tell them this loud and clear. Tell them also that they know perfectly well that they can influence federal immigration policies and that it’s time for them to stop playing games such as being helpless.
If a municipal, provincial or federal politician seems to think that no critical comment can be made about immigration, tell them they are speaking absolute nonsense. Being able to say nothing critical today about Canada’s immigration policies is like being able to say nothing critical, fifteen years ago, about Canada’s massive deficit spending. Canada’s spending had to be brought back to sanity. So do Canada’s present immigration policies. The latter are a formula for even greater disaster than unrestrained deficit spending.
If politicians are marveling about multiculturalism, you will know that they are in favour of present immigration levels and/or that they know very little about Canada’s present immigration policies and/ or that they have given very little thought to the immigration issue. Challenge them. Canadians have had enough of robotic immigration comments from people who are supposed to have the ability to think. Tell them that their primary responsibility is to the majority of Canadians and that this means that the economic, environmental and cultural well being of the majority of Canadians has to take precedence over such clichéd and vacuous ideas as multiculturalism, diversity and vibrancy. It is important that you speak out. The economic, environmental and cultural well being of Canada is at stake.
Send us a copy of your letters. We regularly publish a selected number of comments in the “WEEKLY BULLETINS” section of our web site. They are usually titled something like, “The People Speak Their Views On Immigration”.
One of the more effective ways to contact politicians is to write or type an old-fashioned letter on paper and to use Canada’s mail system. Such hard copy gets more attention than electronic copy. To send a hard copy letter to Canada’s Prime Minister or any other MP, just use the MP’s name and the following address: C/O Parliament Buildings, Ottawa, Ontario, K1A 0A6.
If you don’t know your MP’s name, you can find him or her by calling the Library of Parliament in Ottawa (1-866-599-4999). Give the receptionist your postal code and address. That will help to locate the MP. If talking to someone in Ottawa sounds intimidating, you can always phone the constituency offices of these people in the place where you live. If you have the Internet, check it for constituency office contact information. Your phone book should also have constituency contact information.
Paper letters to MP’s require no postage!
Please send a copy of your letter to your own MP and to 3 or 4 other related departments. MP’s will usually respond to letters, but will often ignore e-mails.
LIST OF RELEVANT E-MAIL ADDRESSES
If you wish to use e-mail, here is a list of e-mail addresses. We have included other information you can use to make a complaint about the immigration issue:
(1) Canada’s Prime Minister, Stephen Harper: Harper.S@parl.gc.ca
(Ph. 613- 992-4211 ; Fax: (613) 941-6900
(2) Canada’s Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism, Jason Kenney: Kenney.J@parl.gc.ca (Ph. 613-992-2235 ; Fax. 613-992-1920)
(3) The leaders of the other parties in Parliament: Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff (Ignatieff.M@parl.gc.ca), NDP Leader Jack Layton (Layton.J@parl.gc.ca) and BQ leader Gilles Duceppe (Duceppe.G@parl.gc.ca)
MP’S WHO ARE ON CANADA’S STANDING COMMITTEE ON CITIZENSHIP AND IMMIGRATION
(4) The 12 MP’s who are on the Standing Committee on Citizenship and Immigration spend most of their time discussing immigration and refugee issues. They make decisions on what immigration and refugee changes should be introduced to the House of Commons. Incredible as it may sound, they spend almost all of their time listening to Canada’s immigration industry (immigration lawyers, immigration consultants and ethnic groups whose votes they want). These MP’s need to hear from real Canadians. Here are their names and e-mail addresses:
David Tilson (Tilson.D@parl.gc.ca)
Maurizio Beviliacqua (Bevilacqua.M@parl.gc.ca )
Thierry St-Cyr (St-Cyr.T@parl.gc.ca )

COMPLAIN TO THE CBC AND TO CANADA’S HERITAGE MINISTER ABOUT THE CBC
The CBC receives about $1 Billion a year of taxpayer money to be Canada’s national broadcaster. With that billion, it regularly abuses its role by acting as the propaganda arm for Canada’s immigration industry. The abuse comes in the form of television programs like “Little Mosque on the Prairie” or in the form of summer radio programs that promote the hiring (at the expense of Canadian-born) of immigrants that Canada never needed. These are but 2 of hundreds of examples of CBC television and radio support of high immigration levels. When you hear the CBC give airtime to Canada’s immigration industry, phone them and complain. It is no exaggeration to say that the CBC is betraying Canadians. The CBC has to hear from thousands of us.
Here are people you can complain to:
A. The CBC Ombudsman: This person (currently Kirk LaPointe) investigates complaints against the CBC. Complaints about the CBC should be sent to email@example.com. French complaints against Radio Canada should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
The CBC Ombudsman for English broadcasting can be contacted by regular mail or by phone. Here is the appropriate contact information:
Kirk LaPointe, CBC Ombudsman
P.O. Box 500, Station A
Toronto, Ontario M5W 1E6
B. Canada’s Minister of Heritage oversees the CBC. Here is the e-mail address for the Minister, James Moore: Moore.J@parl.gc.ca
