Do you know the difference between an immigrant and a visible minority?
Visible minorities can be native born citizens too.
Native born Canadian seniors get more tax dollars of support per year than immigrant seniors - mostly because they've paid more into CPP during their working lives and because you qualify for more benefits the longer you've lived in Canada. And do you think only immigrant grandparents are capable of taking care of their grandchildren?
Did your dad ever get old age benefits? How about health care?
Right now, immigration is all about visible minorities as most come from Asia and Africa. Yes, I know, there are visible minorirites born in Canada.
Immigrants and their supporters are using the argument that it is economically essential and multicultural bringing their parents over from Asia to take care of the kiddies and retain their culture. I disagree witht this policy because the cost is too high. Too high in taxes and too high in keeping immigrants feeling foreign in Canada. It creates ethnic neighbourhoods and ethnic cities. The village from Asia comes to Canada.
If we took in only economic immigrants, one at a time, then immigrants here would more likely marry a Canadianized immigrant, or a Canadian unconnected to their former village or region. Now they can bring a wife, children and relatives from their old village and create chain migration that slows down assimialtion and recreate their old world. I want them to become Canadians and assimilate as quickly as possible, and we are not doing this.
What we are getting are public schools, under the guise of human rights, letting turning a room into a mosque and making the women pray at the back of the room, or bus, to use an expression. Asians discriminate as a matter of course, and we let them. Time to end it.
My dad worked in Canada for 30 years and got a crap pension.
