The real problem is that too many native born Canadians are too dam lazy to work. We go through lots of labourers because the young ones don't want to work and have zero work ethic and we pay them fairly well for having no experience. Anyone with any kind of construction experience at all will be making $16-18/hr., more if the job requires wearing face masks. Only one catch. Crackheads and drunks need not apply.
As of this AM. 380 vacancies just on the government job board on VI.
Let's see, about half the immigrants that come to Canada 250000/2= 1250000, are basically useless in the job market. Divide that by the five large cities, Van, Cal, Edm, Tor, Mon, and immig may not have a huge impact on the job market I suppose. But if they can't get jobs, they're not living that well. Then if they cannot succeed they may turn to religion and other silliness and conspire like the Toronto 18.
Those "lazy" Canadians have good EI, they can leave seasonal jobs and layabout when its done. Could be "rural" or "Atlantic" Cdns.
JLM: Some people are dishonest. The store I saw on CBC was at Hastings and Nanaimo, in Vancouver East, middle class but not classiic suburbia, and many fellow travelers of the Occupy camp as it is close to Commercial Drive-anarchist central. They've always had thieves, now they seem to have more than usual. Maybe the stores, with Harper in power and his crime agenda, are taking the law into their own hands more so they're cathcing more hoodlums so they can fill up those shiny new prisons.
