ON REMEMBRANCE DAY, IMPORTANT THINGS TO REMEMBER : “SHAME ON PREMIER MACDONALD”, “CREDENTIALS ARE FOR SALE”, ETC.
These are the views of four Canadians.
ON REMEMBRANCE DAY, IMPORTANT THINGS TO REMEMBER :
(1) SHAME ON PREMIER RODNEY MACDONALD AND ALL OTHER CANADIANS WHO SUPPORT HIGH IMMIGRATION
Unlike most of Canada, Nova Scotia and the other Atlantic Provinces are only beginning to experience the effects of mass immigration. Like the rest of Canada, N.S. is importing a problem. I fear for the culture of Nova Scotia. This province contains a unique version of Scottish culture which is slowly being washed away,and is now also being marginalized by new immigrants. There could be no grosser misconception than to suggest that multiculturalism will make Nova Scotia unique within Canada or, for that matter, in the world. Im sorry, Premier Rodney MacDonald, making Nova Scotia multicultural doesnt make the slightest bit of sense ! Ever heard of Toronto, Vancouver, Amsterdam, The Hague, London, Milan, New York or California? These places are all home to over 100 nationalities. Why would we want to be like them? How in the world will multiculturalism make this province, or this country, unique?
If anything, Atlantic Canadians can take a lesson or two from the mistakes made in other areas of Canada. After all, its silly to make the same mistake more than once, given the effects that mass immigration has had on Canadian culture, our environment and race relations. Even if it did make us unique, why would we ever want to destroy our culture, especially in Eastern Canada where our population has been given so much time to develop a culture of its own? I fear particularly for Newfoundland and its unique port dialects which are already slowly being washed away. In fact, I wrote a letter several months ago to Premier Williams advising him to be extremely cautious about ever becoming interested in high immigration.
I am 16 years old and in response to the immigrant population increase in Nova Scotia, I have chosen to get involved, by getting in contact with Immigration Watch Canada. Forty three years ago when immigration was increased for the first time, why didnt the people of Toronto speak up as they were 99% Anglo-Saxon in 1965? If I can, why couldnt they? I am even more shocked that the next big immigration increase in 1990 was based on striving for ethnic votes, and did not take the majority of Canadian people into consideration. The primary duty of politicians is to represent their constituents. Once they abandon that priority, the country is no longer a true democracy. Premier MacDonald has decided to practice the same deceit on Nova Scotians as other political leaders across Canada have. He should have learned from past mistakes. Shame on you, Rodney MacDonald! Shame on all those Canadians who chose not to act sooner! Shame on all those who still do nothing !!
(2) CREDENTIALS ARE FOR SALE
Last week, a young Chinese couple from Markham, Ontario was acquitted (on a technicality) of counterfeiting hundreds of passports, university degrees and government documents. They had 3 Chinese student accomplices. Their case revives the accusation that has been made in the past that the documents some immigrants present in Canada are fraudulent.
Immigration industry representatives and their political puppets like to tell us sad stories of innocent immigrants who suffer from delayed recognition of their credentials. That is probably true in some cases. The larger truth is that 80% of the 250,000 regular immigrants who come to Canada every year do not have to meet any points requirements by showing credentials. That's because most don't have any credentials—contrary to what immigration lawyers and advocates like to tell Canadians !!
This counterfeiting story should remind the accreditation agencies in Canada that there is ample justification for checking credentials very carefully. These agencies should not allow themselves to be stampeded by hack politicians who want to curry favour with some ethnic group.
(3) THE $10 MILLION MAN HAS WANNABE BROTHERS
The Globe and Mail, Sunday, November 8/08, reports that the brothers of Maher Arar, who received $10-million for his misappropriation to Syria and alleged torture, as a result of RCMP misinformation to the CIA, are feeling victimized. They want to re-negotiate the compensation they received because, wouldn't you know it, they now feel “that the financial settlement was not enough”. It is noted that the eldest brother, Hanssan Arar, was responsible in 1987 for “bringing his six siblings over to join him”, including Maher who was then 17 years old.
It is noted that Hanssan is a truck driver. The others work in factories or operate small businesses; and only one of the brothers acquired post -secondary education. One is left to wonder what pressing need there was for Canada to permit them to emigrate to Canada in the first place. Was Canada short of factory workers, truck drivers?
(4) CONNECT CANADA'S FOOD AID WITH FAMILY PLANNING OR PAY FOR NOT DOING SO
The worlds immigration problems are not without cause and one cause might well be the overpopulation of Mexico, Pakistan, India and other countries. Since the 1970s, these countries have been capable of producing almost double the amount of food to support significantly more people, but the economies and job opportunities of these countries have not kept pace.
The American agronomist Norman Borlaug*, who won the Nobel Peace Prize, saved perhaps hundreds of millions of people in these and other countries from starvation with his improvements to the grain yields and farming techniques he introduced. His innovations not only saved lives but created a new world food base upon which human populations have grown ever larger.
You are invited to do your own research to determine population growth in the world and in countries from which Canada receives its immigrants. While undertaking this task, you might also note that those countries to which the world sends most of its billions in food and aid to save lives are also those with the highest average reproduction rates for females in the world.
It is truly unfortunate that in order to save lives in less fortunate countries, we inadvertently encourage populations to grow and then overflow into Canada. Equally unfortunate is the fact that those countries, which require our aid the most, continue to reproduce beyond their means. What a bizarre outcome to selfless acts of charity !
