I'm a little confused by your post. What does either of the links you posted have to do with the topic?
BTW the first Canadians appear to have come from Asia. Africa is where they came from before that.

Ah, for a few politicians like this in Canada...
It is to dream.....
Come on, Colpy. Do we really need more bigoted ignoramuses in Canada? Try reading through the Bible and you will find an equal number of references to violence. Does that mean all modern Christians support terrorist activities?

What do we need from Tamil Tigers? Bombs on our airplanes and public transit systems? What does Canada need from elderly Chinese Grandmothers?
I come from a Block Settlement background and; despite the lunacy which exists in your minds, there's a difference between European immigrants settling unsettled lands and current immigrants practicing ethnic cleansing through the displacement of pre-existing urban populations.
I know what I am talking about as I remember when Richmond was a community of Anglo-Saxon farmers.

Could you provide the readers with a few examples of terrorists activities in Canada involving Tamil Tigers?
I also wonder what the urbanization of the greater Vancouver area has to do with the thread.

So let me get this straight - increased real estate values are entirely due to Chinese immigration. Given the fact that my house is now worth almost three times what I paid for it in 1995 I guess I should send the Chinese embassy a thank you letter.
[/QUOTE=Trotz;1389613]I believe we need a social immigration system; taking in immigrations who share our core values. Islamicists shouldn't be allowed in, period. Likewise, the Catholic Church (a reflection of European society) had never looked kindly on usury and speculation; two traits which are synonymous to the "entrepreneurial" (more like speculating and stealing) Chinese.[/QUOTE]
Great idea. Can you tell us where these immigrants who share our core values are going to come from? And can you tell us what these core values are? I would like to see how many of them I have.
As for the Catholic Church and its attitude toward moneylending, you appear to be completely unaware of how badly that held back the development of trade and commerce in the areas of Europe that remained Roman Catholic after the Reformation. It was one of the main reasons why nations like the Netherlands and England surged ahead of Catholic Europe after the seventeenth century.
Also why is the Chinese entrepreneurial spirit considered stealing when the same activities by the English, Americans, and others is considered legitimate business?
