OpnSrc you're right...
And I have been accused of being objectionable towards other cultures just because I am sick and tired of this perpetual population growth we are stuck in.
I am disgusted by the idea of about 330,000 more people being added to Canada this year.
You made a good point about First Nations people. I wonder what they think of Canada accepting so many immigrants... Most of their beefs have to do with having their land taken away.
One thing is for certain, the First Nations people will have less and less land as long as we keep importing so many immigrants.
The person here with the sheep on her avatar said one of the stupidest things.
I hear this statement a lot in coffie shops so I typed it like I hear it-god damn foreiners taking our gobs. This really pisses me off, I can't imagine working as hard as they do. Take a corner store owner, he works 16 hour days
She basically said that it is a myth that immigrants take our jobs and then she said that the immigrants she knows are super hard working and one of them even works 16 hours a day.
So does that mean Canadian born people have to work 17 hours a day now just to compete?
I guess Canadian born people won't be spending much time with their families anymore now that they are forced to compete with all these new immigrants who are so hard working that they'll work 16 hour days.
Anyhow, my passion is the natural environment and the wilderness. I care more about biodiversity than human multicultural diversity.
Human multicultural diversity is not threatened. There are 6.5 billion people in the world.
There is enough genetic variety of each human ethnicity that there will never be a shortage in any gene pool for humans.
On the other hand, species of animals and plants are heavily thretened. Biodiversity is declining. In Ontario, immigration is directly correlated to the loss of many species such as the blue pike, the eastern elk, the tiger salamander, the greater prairie chicken, etc.

There are a lot more species extirpated than this list even reports.
Allowing immigration from areas of high to low density merely fuels global population growth.
The only reason Canada imports immigrants is not for benevolent sharing of our land. It is to increase the economy, have more taxpayers and consumers, etc.
This comes at the price of our natural environment.
