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