    There will still be immigration but it will be more 'selective'.

    Like America with the IRA of 1965 that basically shut off most legal immigration from Europe and opened up allowing tens of millions of uneducated, unskilled immigrants from third world countries who would become dependent on government, demanding free stuff and voting the Democrat ticket to get that free stuff ?

    >" Senate immigration subcommittee chairman Edward Kennedy (D-MA.) reassured his colleagues and the nation with the following:

    "First, our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants annually. Under the proposed bill, the present level of immigration remains substantially the same ... Secondly, the ethnic mix of this country will not be upset ... Contrary to the charges in some quarters, [the bill] will not inundate America with immigrants from any one country or area, or the most populated and deprived nations of Africa and Asia ... In the final analysis, the ethnic pattern of immigration under the proposed measure is not expected to change as sharply as the critics seem to think."

    Sen. Kennedy concluded by saying,

    "The bill will not flood our cities with immigrants. It will not upset the ethnic mix of our society. It will not relax the standards of admission. It will not cause American workers to lose their jobs." (U.S. Senate, Subcommittee on Immigration and Naturalization of the Committee on the Judiciary, Washington, D.C., Feb. 10, 1965. pp. 1-3.)..."<

    Here is someone who said the direct opposite of what Kennedy said and was roundly vilified at the time for saying it. Now we can look back to see who actually spoke the truth.

    Well, that's a weird story. Gotta be more to it than that. Quebec has had a pretty socialist government for a few years and they put a lot of budget into social programs. I think you got wrong information.

    >" This shameless immigration betrayal of Canada and the promotion of political party self-interest began in 1990 when one political party (the Progressive Conservatives) increased immigration levels to 250,000 per year. At the time they did this, they actually announced they were doing so in order to capture more of the immigrant vote. This may sound hard to believe because it is so brazen, but it is a fact. Since then, all other parties have adopted the same policy. All pretend that their actions are helping people in the rest of the world and that this immigration flood is literally and figuratively enriching Canadian society.

    The reality is that it has obviously been destructive and senseless. Canada’s 250,000 per year immigration intake since 1990 has been far too high. In fact, Canada’s intake is the highest per capita in the world.

    What are some examples of the destruction and senselessness? Our high intake has had major negative economic consequences for Canadians who are looking for work. In fact, it has forced many of Canada’s own unemployed to compete with immigrants for a limited number of jobs and it has impoverished many Canadians .

    Absurd as it may sound, some naive, employed Canadians have actually launched “Recognize Foreign Credentials”, “Cultural Diversity in the Workplace”, and “Hire An Immigrant” campaigns to give immigrants that Canada never needed a hiring advantage over unemployed Canadian-born. And they smugly believe they should be given awards for throwing their own fellow citizens under the bus.


    The destruction and senselessness these naive Canadians (as well as those with sinister intentions) have created has caused many Canadians (especially those in Canada’s larger centres) to become very angry. These Canadians feel that this social engineering project has raised “Diversity” to the level of a national goal. They feel this amounts to the country being ethnically cleansed and re-colonized. Finally, they see with their own eyes that Canada’s high intake has also turned many areas of the country into crowded, grid-locked, environmental disasters-in-progress..."< Excerpt from this.-> Canada's annual intake of 250,000 immigrants is far too high and makes no sense
    Whooa!
    Immigration is what Canada needs, and more of it. Never mind history, which shows that Canada's (few) problems have always been related to a low population, we are particularily now hurting for young skilled tradesmen. Canada's white European base is at zero population growth at a time when our resource (labour-intensive) industries are pressured for growth.
    Look at a map. Canada is a huge country and a small nation.

    Europe and Asia, mostly. I'm on the west coast and most immigrants here are Chinese and Indian.

    Most immigrants are from Europe and East Asia. Not so many from the middle east and africa (as it is in the case of European nations) or from latin america (which is the case with the US).
