  1. Yeah, we take about 200k/year. Keeps our population from declining. What's your point?

    1. > There's 200,000 new people every year that can't speak English, what's the problem?

      Uhm.

    2. Why do we need to keep our population from declining? With automation and technology improvements we'll need less people in the country. Why open our doors to overpopulated countries?

    3. Not true 1a, the ability to speak at least one official language is a major factor in whether or not you're allowed to immigrate. Also we tend to favour immigrants with the intent and means to start businesses.

  2. Immigration can be good, but Canada accepts too much garbage from the third world.

    1. Immigration is hardly ever good.

  3. You do realize that unless you're native american, everyone here is descended from immigrants? We need to keep our population up because the population provides the demand for products and services that our economy depends on. Automation may eventually make it so we don't need to work, but if everything is free then capitalism isn't going to work as a system of government anymore.

    1. You do realize some of us are native american and question why we're being used to illustrate immigration in Canada. Canadian immigration in the 1800s, 1900s, up to 1970s, is vastly different from current immigration.

    2. Hey look, another libtard who doesn't understand economics. I am not an expert but after 10 seconds of googling I found that aggregate demand does not influence long term economic growth.

    3. 3.a, you're not being used to illustrate immigration. It doesn't matter if it was immigration as we know it now or colonial expansion, all I'm saying is native americans were the first people here.

    5. This post reeks of Comrade Sanders logic. Fucking garbage and complete economic illteracy in addition to being one of these "hurr we all immigrated here" morons.

    6. The "we are all immigrants" argument is a little silly, but the values argument isn't. We are, unquestionably, a country founded on and by people who came here from someplace else, hoping to make a new life for themselves and for their families. That idea has shaped our policies and our values since the beginning.

      We have also *always* complained about whatever the newest group happens to be. The Irish, the Ukrainians, the Japanese, the Vietnamese, Middle Easterners... there's always a target. And the "end of civilization" that the naysayers claim the target of the day will bring with them... it never comes. In fact, those tend to be the people who take the jobs we are unwilling to do ourselves, who start new businesses, who bring fresh ideas and ways of thinking to the table and help the economy grow.

    7. again 3.f you need to look at timelines. not all times are equal and to lump them into one simplistic category is sloppy and lazy thinking.

    8. What 3g said. We were never in an ideological war with Philippinos.

      And Phillipines didn't bring all of their dirty money from sweat shops to buy all of our real estate, making prices rise at astronomical rates.

  4. I think Denmark has a solution to the low birth rate that would be perfect for all these angry, sexless white males complaining about immigration: https://www.rt.com/news/345499-denmark-baby-boom-sex/

    2. Also, Denmark is based. They have armed guards on their borders ready to go. Time to learn Dutch.

    3. Denmark speaks Danish you R-tard.

    4. Who is angry? If you don't agree with Canada's current immigration you're an angry sexless white male?

    5. I just wanted to bring attention to a fun news story in a vaguely amusing way. Clearly neither the humour nor the story landed...

    1. Yes, we need that wall to keep those Americans out... ffs

      Part of why immigration is so successful in Canada is because we have very few problems with illegal immigrants. This is because a) there aren't really a flood of illegals from the US, and b) we're geographically very well-suited to regulating who comes into the country.

      But Chris Christies says America should bomb the homeland of the Orlando shooter, so maybe when Washington starts dropping bombs on NYC we'll get people clamoring to cross our border, I dunno.

      Delete
    2. His homeland isn't NYC, dumbass. Stop being pedantic.

      Trudeau is actually taking away Visa requirements for Mexican "tourists" so we will need a wall soon.

      Delete
    3. ^He was born in NYC to parents who were also American citizens. It's not pedantry, he's just literally not a foreigner.

    4. He followed Islam and hated the West. Doesn't sound like an American to me.

      I don't care if you're born in my country. It takes more than eating our dirt to make you Canadian/American.

    5. 5.d "Doesn't sound like an American to me."

      Dude, he went on a shooting spree. What's more American than mass shootings??

      Delete
    6. Mass shootings are extremely rare. There are far more blacks shooting eachother on a weekly basis, sometimes daily, than there are mass shooting victims all year.

  6. Why don't these show up as "recent comments"? Broken OMG?

    1. Censorship comrade.

    2. 6b, why's it censorship, and by who?

      Delete
    3. Weird that all the other + buttons in that section work, but now we can't even expand the recent comments section. It used to be defaulted to expanded so we could see the last 5 comments posted anywhere on the site.

      I agree it's censorship if it was on purpose. Mods should fix it.

      Delete
    4. That's like saying the newspaper not showing up at your door is the same as the newspaper changing what it prints to exclude certain information. Not censorship, just less convenience in getting the information.

  8. Some of them who can't really speak English are international students.

    ReplyDelete
  9. as an international student, I agree. Illegal immigration sucks. It sucks that what I worked so hard to get, people just come in illegally and reap benefits for themselves. I have no intention to go back to my shitty country, and I'm pretty much fully "integrated" into Canadian society at this point.

    Oh, and some FOBs do speak really good english. Don't lump everyone under the same umbrella.

    ReplyDelete
  10. 1a, I came here 5 years ago from the middle east as an immigrant. Here's the catch, I can actually speak English, it's what I've studied as my first language in school. The same goes for lots of people where I come from, but of course, you'd know better, you lived there most of your life after all.

    5d, I'm muslim, I'm arab, I don't eat your dirt, and I don't hate the west. I don't agree with the Orlando Shooting. Guess what, I also happen to be Canadian. I feel bad for you, you seem to have a really bad misconception of what Islam preaches. You may want to re-educate yourself and be a little more respectful of fellow human beings.
