THE PEOPLE SPEAK OUT ON IMMIGRATION ISSUES
On How Canadian “Higher Education” Has Become Canadian “Lower Education” :
I have 2 Master’s Degrees. Part of why I am so vehemently against mass immigration has to do with the way I, personally, was misled over 8 years of university by my professors. Many of their careers are built on attacking Canada’s mainstream population, on paying no attention to balance, and often on presenting no evidence. Whole faculties at many Canadian universities have become constellations of people who are like-minded, anti-white, and anti-Canadian mainstream. Is this what Canadian “higher education” was intended to become?
On How Canada Acts Like A Woman With Very Low Self-Esteem :
In 1996, while I was working as a Corrections Officer, I knew an immigrant inmate who had committed violent robberies and was considered dangerous enough to be detained by immigration authorities who took measures to deport him. He had been in Canada 8 years and had supported himself solely by robbery in Saskatoon. Immigration authorities held him
for the longest that they could by law. However, they finally had to release him because his country of origin, Iraq, refused to take him. He was back in prison within months. Inmates who have been deported have told me they have no problem getting back into the country and that they have little difficulty in obtaining a phony passport.
I have begun to think of Canada as a woman with very low self esteem and who will date anyone that comes along. We have to be much more careful about how many immigrants we allow in and much more selective about the quality of those we choose. We don’t need to import criminals. We have enough homegrown. I found immigrants from Jamaica and Africa highly represented in the federal system. Inmates who had done time in Ontario told me certain institutions there were a “training ground for Muslim extremists”.
On The Best Quote Of 2010 About Illegal Immigration Everywhere :
You might recall that, as a protest against an Arizona law which tried to curb illegal immigration, and as a gesture of solidarity with Hispanics, the Phoenix Suns basketball team donned uniforms with the wording “Los Suns” instead of “The Suns”. Foremost in opposing Arizona’s enforcement of federal immigration laws that the Obama administration would not enforce, were Canadian star player Steve Nash and the owner of the Phoenix Suns, Robert Sarver. Both are apparently oblivious to the enormous costs that illegal immigrants impose upon Arizonan taxpayers. Owner Robert Sarver said the team was doing this to “honor our Latino community, the diversity of our league, the state of Arizona and our nation”. In response to Sarver and Nash, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer released the following statement : .
“What if the owners of the (Phoenix) Suns discovered that hordes of people were sneaking into (Phoenix Suns’) games without paying? What if they had a good idea who the gate-crashers are, but the ushers and security personnel were not allowed to ask these folks to produce their ticket stubs, thus (preventing) non-paying attendees (from being)…ejected ? Furthermore, what if Suns’ ownership was expected to provide those who sneaked in with complimentary eats and drink? And what if, on those days when a gate-crasher became ill or injured, the Suns had to provide free medical care and shelter?”
On How Immigrant Women Have Learned How To Abuse Canada’s Generosity :
I became discouraged with the immigration system while working for a Calgary NGO that helps women with children to leave family violence. Several of these women were bogus immigrants. One woman and her children stayed at that residence for over a year despite the fact that the supervisors had discovered she had stolen the identity of a deceased woman in Africa. She was never reported.
Most of these women refused to work because they knew they could get more by enrolling in a government programme which required them to go to school part-time, but which paid more than social assistance. Before these people even got to Canada, they had learned what to expect to receive in Canada financially, such as Child Credits. These women had developed a strong sense of entitlement. In particular, they knew that if they have a child here, they had assured themselves a place here.
One woman with 3 children had a husband with a Master’s Degree in Engineering. He decided to take a second wife. She didn’t want to put up with this, so she took her 3 children back to her parents in Pakistan. There, the Canadian Embassy told her that her children would have a better future in Canada, so back she came where she collected social assistance and became outraged that our system did not provide enough for her and her children. This woman was even trying to bring her parents here despite the fact that she was unemployed !!! To top everything, she was housed in a beautiful, new 3-bedroom townhouse as part of the “End the Homelessness” program in Calgary !!!

On An Important Question : How Does Haitian Immigration Help Canada?
It is interesting that CBC and Ottawa’s political class love to trumpet the appointment of a Haitian-born Governor General or a Vietnamese-born Catholic Bishop as examples of how wonderfully “tolerant” we are. How long will we perpetuate this self-image of Canada as a land of opportunity, a place that needs buckets of newcomers to inject a vitality and drive that native born Canadians allegedly don’t have? Isn’t this immigrant-makes-good mythology wearing a little thin in 2010? The family farm is dead. Killed by agribusiness and the development and subdivision of prime farmland by immigration-driven population growth. We don’t need waves of immigrants to homestead anymore. Our secondary industry is dead. Killed by trade agreements and globalization. The smokestack era is over. We don’t need more people from any source to “build” the country, to create a reserve army of cheap surplus labour to drive down wages and displace jobs.
Canada is already over-built. Our best arable land is under threat from development, with nearly 20% of our Class 1 farmland already lost. Ontario, which has lost 600,000 acres of prime farmland in the decade preceding 2006, is slated to add another 6 million people to the Golden Horseshoe in two more decades. UBC’s Dr. Michael Healy also warned, in a federally-commissioned study of the Fraser Basin Ecosystem, that immigration-fuelled urban growth in Metro-Vancouver and the Fraser Valley would wreak the same havoc if not unchecked. He cited immigration as a major force in that growth.
So why do we celebrate immigrant success stories? Why does CBC icon Peter Mansbridge presume to speak for all Canadians when he declares that the appointment of Father Vincent Nguyen as a new Roman Catholic bishop is a story that “will lift our hearts.?” We need new folklore. The old formula is not appropriate to our present predicament. We need stories about Canadians who got the job done, not more CBC portraits of immigrants who turned their lives around by turning ours upside down. I wonder if there is a program on Saudi Arabian or Libyan TV entitled “Little Church on the Desert”? I wonder if Haitians would celebrate the appointment of a guy called Smith from Saskatoon as their new head of state? Or if they would import educated Canadians to drive their taxis and then have a pity party about how their credentials aren’t recognized? I rather doubt that they would be that stupid.
I for one am sick of CBC puppeteers pulling our heartstrings while neglecting the hardships suffered by people right here. I am sick of their deification of the immigrant and their denigration of the Canadian-born. I am sick of the kind of journalism that focuses on the struggles of a downtrodden illegal refugee to put food on the table at the expense of Canada’s working poor who are squeezed out by this competition. I am sick of a taxpayer-funded corporation that consistently reports the frustration of a foreign born engineer in not finding employment in his field when Canadian engineering graduates, burdened by a mountain of student debt, must rely on minimum wage jobs or the patronage of parents to see them through. In short, I am sick of PC bias.
By all means, let’s help Haiti and other countries, but let’s do it right this time—by helping them to reduce their populations and to end their dependence on countries like Canada to take their excess people.
