Immigration Minister’s “We need new blood” comment fails to put Canadians first

Rebel Staff
 

Canada’s Immigration Minister thinks Alberta’s unemployment rate should be higher, our wages lower and our job fair line-ups longer. 

John McCallum didn't exactly say that but what he did say will result in those economic conditions for Alberta. After a closed door meeting with Alberta business people, McCallum said:

“There’s a strong consensus that they’re in favour of more immigrants, not less immigrants, notwithstanding the state of the economy”

Translation: Businesses want cheaper labour.

Who can blame them? With all the added expenses being thrown at Alberta businesses from all levels of government, they’re just trying to manage costs. I get it. But what I don’t get is a Minister of the crown failing to put Canadians first.

There are 77,000 Albertans on employment insurance - some have already run out. Alberta’s unemployment rate is at 8.6%, higher than the national average and up a percentage point from the month before. Alberta’s youth unemployment rate is at 14.8% up from 11.4% the year before. These numbers are real people in our communities. They should not be duking it out for the few available jobs with a sudden influx of economic migrants.

There may be strategic time to increase immigration rates in an aging population. This is not that strategic time.

McCallum says Canada needs “new blood”. What’s wrong with the old blood? That old blood is one the highest skilled work forces in the world and they need jobs today.

Isn’t it a Canadian Minister’s job to put those Canadian’s first?

I agree Manoj. No one is saying to stop immigration we just want RESPONSIBLE immigration. HOWEVER if we spent the BILLIONS we spend on immigrants who cant afford to come here on helping Canadians to afford to have children or to create work, we DONT NEED immigrants. You are correct, WE CANT AFFORD THEM and it is better to have a dip in the population. The other sick thing is, go to any Provincial Employment Office, they target YOUNG IMMIGRANTs or YOUTH. NO ONE ELSE ! If you are an older Canadian out of a job, it is as if the Provinces and Feds would prefer you go off somewhere and die and give your spot to Muhammad Mohammad Doh-hammod.

Both US and Canada address themselves as countries of immigrants but both countries are seemingly lacking in the combined wisdom as to what category of immigrants they really desire to welcome. A perceived lack of true love for the country supplemented by a heavy dose of political correctness lies at the heart of this malady. I personally know scores of qualified and trained immigrants who having spent most of their lives’ savings, are fighting it out there in order to fulfill a futile dream of living in a promised land. The way things are deteriorating, I frankly fail to understand why these two countries need immigrants at all. For ordinary citizens and permanent residents, the dwindling economy, unemployment, high taxation, progressive increase in the cost of living combined with a conspicuous degree of socialistic indoctrination injected at the school level, pose a serious threat to the success and growth of both countries.

Cheap labor? The current influx of muzzies the Liebranos are fast tracking don’t want work! They want free stuff so they have ample time to plot destruction of the rest of us!

Think a generation down the road. This current influx/invasion of immigrants worldwide is population replacement. As babyboomers die off, muslims become more and more of a demographic majority. Eventually Canada becomes a caliphate and it is game over.

New blood Mr. McCallum. This from a guy who could be the poster boy for the walking dead. I mean he is a walking coma. He is not the only one in the Libtard lineup like that. I would like to remind Canadians of some important facts about our present immigration system.

1. It is run by immigrants. So there is NO scrutiny of what is actually happening. Immigration lawyers run the show and they don’t give a rats arse about Canada.
2. Crime has risen under recent immigration policies. From Haiti and the Caribbean to Africa and ME. Most of these people are LOITERERS until they join gangs or get radicalized. Go to any mall and look around. Go to any neighborhood they inhabit and check the rates of crime and shootings.
3. They are THE biggest IMPORTERS of illegal firearms from the US into CANADA.
4. They are THE biggest catalyst for the creation of gangs and the bolstering of existing gangs. In Ottawa where our Dickhead PM lives there are shootings regularly now by people with names like Mustafa and Mohammad.
5. These so-called immigrants populate our CITIES. CITIES I may add Mr. McCallum that most long time Canadians CANT AFFORD TO LIVE IN. How do they afford it? Look above!
6. They believe in things that are completely opposed to our way of life.
7. They cant afford to live here but somehow they can build huge Mosques, even bomb proof ones, to spread their satanic cult.
8. They are a MASSIVE burden on the healthcare system. They not only have a high rate of health issues before they come here they are told how to exploit our healthcare system. They are the ones illegally using our health care system.
9. Bigamy is a problem. They legally fight for the right to not only bring in their spawn but also their spawn with the dozen other wives they have. One man can import half a Company of immigrants and again, most will have some sort of health care issue.
10. THIS IS A BIG ONE YOU NEED TO LOOK AT. They import DISEASE!. It is a FACT that they come here with TB, HIV and now new cases of POLIO and spread it. WHo knows what other disease they are bringing here we don’t know about. Do you think HEALTH CANADA will tell you !! They bring all sorts of illness with them and spread it around. Many have no sense of hygiene nor do they care.
11. They bring in PESTILENCE. Read this report – Actually done by a Muslim professor, on the bed bug epidemic in the US. IT IS NOW HERE IN CANADA. If you know anything about these little creatures you will know that they are very difficult to eradicate. They can cost thousands of dollars to get rid of from your home and recent immigration THANKS TO DICKHEADS LIKE TRUDEAU AND MCCAULLUM has spread them through hotels, motels, apartment buildings and condos across Canada. ALL new studies place the beginning of this epidemic at roughly the exact time that ME and African immigration really took off. The following report is a good example.
(http://www.omicsonline.org/open-access/bed-bugs-epidemic-in-the-united-states.2161-0983.1000143.php?aid=40202) Will the moronic Liberals compensate ALL Canadians that have this problem brought into their lives by their braindead immigration policies. Begbugs had been practically eradicated in North America prior to 2000. Now there are studies stating that they can possibly transmit disease.
12. Modern immigration admits a type of person who believes there is no such thing as a Canadian. PC morons fuel this twisted view in order to compensate people who frankly do not deserve to live here. As a person with a lineage that includes ALL our founding nationalities and cultures I find this particularly insulting. From Mic Mag/Acadian to Scots/Irish/English and Hessian my family can trace its line in Canada from thousands of years to immigration preceding the WW1. We fought for the foundation of this nation from the American Revolution to WW2. Yet, if you have a lineage like me, you are NOT considered anything special OR different from recent immigrants. In many countries around the world this would be a catalyst for Civil War or the formation of a National Freedom Front or something to that effect. NOT a Neo Nazi or racist organization because I count Chinese Canadians and Black Nova Scotians as part of Canada’s founding races and cultures. It would simply be Canadians wanting a say.
13. Human trafficking. We have brought in so-called people into this country who have no problem enslaving children as young as infants for their sexual gratification. This problem will only get worse and it was under success Libtard governments that this issue has become rampant in Canada. From importing strippers/rub parlour girls who are in essence trafficked girls from Eastern Europe and Asia to the rape culture of Islam.

Immigration, in my opinion, like what flag you fly, should be a referendum issue. NO single political party should have the right to determine this sort of policy without a complete education for the people of Canada. Canadians should be able to specifically VOTE in a DEMOCRATIC nation what sort of people WE ALL want in this country. It is obvious that we ALL should want a people that can live here on their own means and ADD to our society NOT JUST TAKE FROM IT. A people who believe in the same values and who are NOT a threat to minorities here like Jews or people in the gay community.

As I have stated before, I recall the influx of a new wave and type of immigration back in the late 1980’s. That brought in all the gangs we are dealing with now. Then in the late 90’s/2000 we started brining in the Muslims. As stated before Canada only had a max total of 30,000 Muslims in 1967. Thanks to Libtard immigration ( even under Harper we were still under Liberal immigration policies but Harper also contributed to this mess ) they are now a steadily growing political power. It is insane. There is no other way to describe it – INSANE.

One of the biggest issues here is the fact that government in general are living off our dime. They are the self entitled class. Most politicians in Ottawa don’t know nor do they care about the rest of Canada. They see a healthy real estate market in Ottawa, they see all the French speakers working and making huge money because they speak French. They live very comfortably in Ottawa. All the gangs and shootings are either in the south or west end where they do not have to go. In short, they have NO CLUE what is happening in the rest of Canada nor do I think they care. As long as it does not affect them, they don’t give a crap. I would like to see Mr. McCallum contract TB or get a bed bug infestation or have a family member shot by one of the nice boys he has allowed into this country. I still don’t think he would care he is that selfish and brain dead.

Canada does not need new blood in terms of immigration.
It needs new blood to replace these overpaid politically correct Socialist politicians.
The arrogance of these leaders in office is offensive. It is high time we fire these enablers of terrorism and throw them in jail where they belong.

it is the liberal way, they do not give a rats ass about average Canadians, we are only a way to steal yet even more money to further the lib agenda, more immigrants equals more votes. THEY SAY THE BIRTH RATE IS DOWN, NO KIDDING NO ONE CAN AFFORD MORE THAN A COUPLE OF KIDS THEY CONTINUE TO TAKE OUR MONEY. Weapons grade stupid can be applied to all liberals it seems. One only needs to look at van and tor, million dollar homes no average Canadians can afford. These people are complete idiots follow the money folks. Just wait for the weed to be legalized im betting the libs buddies are already in line to cash in, The average citizen will be shafted out of any opportunities so liberals friendly cronies can suck in more money. The health minister is a classic example, pay back for campaign donations is all it was.

Right , Sean, but doing the same old screwed up Liberal game plan is not “new blood”. It is more spending other people’s money via taxation to ram through their same old agenda from pap Doc’s days. New blood indeed.
commented 2016-08-23 09:11:27 -0400
McCallum is a lying POS – average Canadians do NOT want to be flooded by mass immigration. Big business may want this (to drive down wages); fatcat bureaucrats may want this, to further fatten and expand the welfare state; Leftists may want this, again to strengthen the welfare state and also to weaken national identity and culture. But average Canadians – the vast majority of us – do not want it, and are sick of politicians (including the PCs) shoving mass immigration down our throats. Enough already.

You can’t count on the government to put its citizens first. Just look at how Germany cares more about the migrants than their own citizens in need.

According to Fraser Institute study on ‘Immigration & Welfare State’:
We estimated in our earlier papers that because of the low average incomes of recent immigrants, the low taxes they pay and the government services they absorb, the fiscal burden on Canadian taxpayers was over $6,000 per capita in fiscal year 2005/06, and that the total fiscal burden in that year was between $16.3 billion and $23.6 billion. The basic methodology employed in our studies has not been challenged and Jason Kenney, the Minister of Employment and Social Development cited our studies in a speech as providing the evidence for “why we [the Government] fundamentally reformed our immigration system”.
New data now available from the 2011 National Household Survey (NHS) has al-lowed us to update our earlier estimate in order to shed light on the success of the recent major steps taken by the Federal Government to improve the selection of new immigrants to improve their economic prospects. We found that the annual net fiscal transfer to recent immigrants is significantly lower at $5,329 per capita than the $6,000 we had found in our previous analysis. However, because the number of immigrants receiving this transfer has increased substantially, the total fiscal burden has risen from $16 to $24 billion in 2005, to $20 to $28 billion in 2010, to $27 to $35 billion in 2014."
We can safely assume it’s almost $40 billion for the year 2015 and rising steeply each year.

So much for the economic benefits of massive & uncontrolled immigration. The social ramifications are devastating for host society.

Cheep labor?? I’ve recently spoke to several business owners in Grande Prairie and they all say that these immigrant laborers are not worth a pinch of coon-shit in the dark!! They can’t speak English and are very demanding EVERYTHING – all the while slowing & turning business away!
To all immigrants – Learn English & FIT IN OR F**K OFF!!
Why can’t we be bringing in immigrants from Croatia, Ukraine, Russia and other countries which have people WANTING to join our culture?? Productive, respectable people – not people that want to change & kill us – John McCallum – you are bringing a civil war to Canada – and it’s gonna bite your & TruDope’s asses very hard when it does happen.
John McCallum – you are one sick POSSTAY OUT OF ALBERTA!! …and keep your immigrants in your town!

The influx of Somali Muslims from Alberta is raising Surrey B.C.’s crime rate; a number that was quite high without any help. The Indo-Canadian gangs may take care of the problem.

Ndp Sucks commented -“McCallum said that rural Alberta wants more immigrants but he did not give any location. He did say there was openings in hospitality, meat packing and agriculture. Perhaps the minister could let everyone know what specific locations are looking for immigrant workers.”

I bet he’s refering to Cargill packers in Brooks and High River. Ask Anyone in Brooks how the quality of life in that quiet irrigation district town changed when Cargill flooded it with Somali workers.

Cargill are LPC and PC patrons. They move big processing ops to small rural towns and use te depressed labour market there and migrant labor to max out profit

NDP SUCKS – I’m willing to believe this is a reference to Cagill in High River and Brook – Big Lib funding sponsor – Ask anyone In Brooks how the quality of life in this quiet little prairie town in the western irrigation district changed when the influx of Somali workers the Cargill Lakeside packing op bought in.

Cargill go to depressed labor markets like rural towns with big processing ops which the local labor pool can’t fill so they use this as an excuse to bring in foreign workers who bust union wage structures – and the rural community has to live with the social fallout of 3rd world workers settling their tribal/culturaldifferences in the streets.

Looks like we are going to see another Province ruined by Islam.
