You’ve likely heard by now that “Canada's population increased by more than a million people for the first time in history in 2022, almost entirely due to a surge in immigrants and temporary residents [according to Statistics Canada].
The total population grew by a record 1.05 million people to 39.57 million in the 12 months to Jan. 1, 2023, and about 96 per cent of the rise was due to international migration, the statistics agency said.
The increase, which helped Canada retain its position as the fastest-growing G7 country, translates to a population growth rate of 2.7 per cent and such a rate would lead to the population doubling in about 26 years, the agency said.”
Immediately after reciting the numbers to us, the CBC goes on to add that “Canada depends on immigration to drive its economy and support an ageing population.”
But wait a minute. Is that statement even remotely accurate in the context of Canada’s current MASS immigration policy? We know from experience that high immigration numbers cannot solve labour shortages because immigrants are not just workers but consumers of goods and services, which creates demand for labour in other sectors and simply displaces the problem. This explains why we still have labour shortages despite having one of the highest levels of immigration in the world for several years. Secondly, the Liberal Party's expansion of the family reunification program to include aunts, uncles, parents and grandparents most surely limits any potential gains of the younger population increases.
Canada’s mass immigration realities The government of Canada announced in November 2022, that successive annual immigration quota increases will continue through 2025.
Only about 25% of newcomers to Canada every year are directly chosen because they have the right qualifications and work experience to fulfil our economic needs. The rest are either spouses and dependents, or they come through the family reunification program or as refugees. They either don’t work or lack the skills most in need even if they find work.
Ever-increasing immigration numbers put increased pressure on healthcare systems, social programs and housing prices. For example, according to Statistics Canada, “72% of government-sponsored refugees still rely on welfare programs two years after arrival, and 35% are still dependent after ten years.”
More than 41% of all immigrants to Canada settle in and around Vancouver and Toronto where our Country’s housing shortage is most acute. The skyrocketing number of newcomers is one of the main reasons for the consistently high level of demand for housing and the exorbitant prices in Canadian cities (see also https://www.peoplespartyofcanada.ca/housing).
So, what exactly is driving Canada’s mass immigration rollout? Now here is where things get real!
On June 4th, 2020, the government of Canada, without announcement or citizen consent, officially accepted the role of “champion” country for the United Nations Global Compact for Safe, Regular and Orderly Migration (GCM).
By becoming a champion country, Canada has officially committed to “continuing to work with the United Nations Network on Migration and other States…[on the] implementation of the GCM and to building positive migration narratives and demonstrating support for the GCM through their leadership and engagement in the multilateral processes.”
Like it or not, Canada’s immigration policy is no longer directed by Canadians for Canadians. It’s been abdicated to the United Nations/WEF by our Young Global Leader prime minister and his WEF Board of Trustees/Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland.
Looking back, the signs of this transition were always there. For example, during the first week of being sworn in as prime minister of Canada in 2015, in an interview with a New York Times journalist, Justin opined that
“Canada is becoming a new kind of state, defined not by its European history but by the multiplicity of its identities from all over the world… There is no core identity, no mainstream in Canada… There are shared values… Those qualities are what make us the first postnational state.’’
Then in an address to the UN General Assembly in September 2020, he laid it out more succinctly;
“This pandemic has provided us with an opportunity for a re-set. This is our chance to accelerate our pre-pandemic efforts to re-imagine economic systems that actually address global challenges, like extreme poverty, inequality and climate change.”
So here we are, post-pandemic re-set and in full rebuilding global economic systems phase, that, in Justin’s mind, will solve all the world’s problems as it transforms Canada into the world’s first post-national state.
Now, at this point, you are likely thinking that surely His Majesty’s Loyal Opposition, the Official Opposition Conservative Party of Canada would oppose abdicating our immigration oversight to the directives of the United Nations, who, by the way, have been in contractual partnership with WEF since June 13, 2019 “to jointly accelerate the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.”
Unfortunately, all the establishment political parties (Lib/Con/Ndp Uniparty) fully support the current and unsustainable mass immigration policy. On top of this, in keeping with the U.N. Agenda 2030 Sustainable Development Goal #11 - sustainable cities and communities (aka fifteen-minute cities) - the Conservative Party of Canada leader recently promised to “require every federally funded transit station, have high-density apartments built around and overtop” if elected prime minister.
How’s that for a kick in the teeth? The answer to unsustainable mass immigration is to keep increasing it and then force high-density housing on all federally funded transit hubs in every big city throughout Canada. It’s not a solution!
Now here is the good news!
The People’s Party of Canada exists to offer Canadians a real principled alternative to the corrupt establishment parties, which rely on pandering and vote-buying schemes to further their interests, and those of lobbyists, rather than those of the people.
We are the fastest-growing party in Canada, with a clear and comprehensive vision for our country. https://www.peoplespartyofcanada.ca/platform
We offer common sense solutions that put Canadians first. We believe that government policy should be made by Canadians, in Canada and for Canadians, not by globalist organizations like the U.N. or the WEF. https://www.peoplespartyofcanada.ca/immigration
We are the only party saying we must withdraw from all UN agreements that dismantle our sovereignty and prosperity, such as the GCM and the Paris Climate Accord.
