Will Trudeau let China bring thousands of peasant-style labourers to Canada?

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Canadian unemployment ticked up last month, from 6.6 to 6.7 per cent. The housing situation is tough, too, especially in the big cities; housing prices in Toronto are up 31 per cent in just one year. 

So what if, in this atmosphere, the Chinese government brought in thousands of peasant-labourers to work in Canada?

I know, that sounds nuts, and it must be illegal, right?

But a few years back, a Chinese-owned coal mine in Northern B.C. didn’t want to hire Canadians. They wanted to import Chinese workers and set up a mining colony, like they already do in Africa.

Back then, Stephen Harper was prime minister. And he wasn’t comfortable with China getting its claws too deeply into Canada.

But now Canada is run by Justin Trudeau. Who loves China, and its “basic dictatorship.” 

Here’s a recent Globe and Mail story:

“The federal government is petitioning Beijing to triple the number of cities where Chinese can apply for Canadian visas, as Ottawa tries to woo not only more students and travellers but also additional temporary foreign workers.”

When Trudeau talks about jobs for the middle class, you have to realize that he means China’s middle class, not Canada's — and then it all makes sense.

NEXT: Our Washington, DC Bureau Chief Jack Posobiec comes on to talk about a possible connection between Antifa and a Philadelphia arson that destroyed 11 homes on May 1 (which is "celebrated" by leftists around the world with protests and even riots.)

It's more important than ever for authorities to declare Antifa a terrorist group.

If you agree, sign and share our petition at StopAntifa.com

THEN: I'm joined by respected scholar and columnist Victor Davis Hanson, a Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institute.

We discuss his outstanding new column in the National Review, about why "progressives" lie.

We all know the Left does so compulsively, but Dr. Hanson explains the true reason behind this tactic.

Chris – any operating mine in Canada pays between $10 million and $200 million in taxes in a year. Depending on the jurisdiction, there are also royalties based on production and/or profit. Mining jobs average about $75,000 per year, so they’re well paying.

Mining jobs usually are magnet jobs – putting in a mine acts as a base for the local economy, and means that for each mining job there will be 1.4 to 2.5 people hired in the support industries (I’ve seen both numbers referenced in land use consultations).

So, when you’re asking about the carbon tax paid, do you mean directly by the mining company, or by the thousands or Canadian workers who depend on coal mining?

What’s the carbon tax on a coal mine?

Last time we did this, we got a national railway out of it, so it’s not necessarily a bad thing.

Further, it’s not like these are jobs that Canadians actually want, which is why they struggle with labour shortages and disproportionately high costs for what is essentially unskilled work.

Let them dig. I’ll take my cut of the royalties and go do something more interesting with the cash.

Chinese labourers? I’m sure Trudeau will fix things so they can get citizenship and the vote…Got to build that Liberal voter base…
With regard to The Rebel’s expansion, please make sure to preserve sufficient resources to help in the fight to unseat Trudeau and his Liberal parasites in 2019. I mean it’s going to be a battle for Canada’s soul. Failure to eject that horrible little man will plunge the country into a final, dreadful descent and our land will become an impoverished, strange and alien place.

Geez Louise, Space Moose what an ignorant thing to say.

Let the Chinese workers come here. Nobody here wants to work in a filthy coal mine.

Your comment shows you know little about modern day mining.

Far better to keep silent and let one think you are a fool than open your mouth and prove it.
commented 2017-05-04 08:22:32 -0400
Space Moose – false, that’s my chosen profession. I used to work in surroundings that others only see on their vacations, and the wages are far higher than most other fields I could have gone into.

If it can’t be grown, it’s got to be mined. Do you really want to depend on foreign nations, particularly China, for the materials that make modern life possible?

watching The Rebel grow & being a part of it in a small way by being a loyal customer since the beginning is the only enjoyment i get out here socialist run Alberta. Only 3 more yrs to go & hopefully we all can survive this destruction of our Province. Getting the truth and fact from my news source makes things a little less painful. God Bless The REBEL & Thank you.

Ezra pointed out that the middle-class Trudeau was trying to make things better for were in China. When Trudeau was first in office, he used to say, “Canadians told me…” this, that or whatever. I used to think, "Yah, Justin. Which Canadians told you that? The ones who just got off the plane from Syria?

The Rebel should be designated as a national treasure in Canada, but when something is that good, it belongs not just to one country, but to the world.

There is a rumor going around that to become a Liberal Party Member or run for a spot in the Liberal Party of Canada everyone must go through a Medical Surgery Procedure. Justin Trudeau himself had this same Surgery.
Apparently a Liberal Party Appointed Surgeon will then Drill a Hole in the Back of Your Head and Suck Your Brains Out. This somewhat Painful Surgery will make you a LifeTime Liberal. There is also some Skin Grafting Required after the surgery. This Medical Procedure will be paid for by the Government of Canada, you must fill out the proper form to receive your reimbursement for this Medical Procedure.
Please sign up to help grow the Liberal Party of Canada.

Ezra, great show and I’m very happy with your growth. I’d like however to mention that it would be great to have Eric Duhaime in Qc report more in french on the islamist mass migration in the province. If he is afraid of tarnishing his own reputation because he is quite a public figure here and it is a very delicate subject after Qc city, he should hire someone else to do it, a french Tommy Robinson type. This subject is a huge problem for a majority of Quebecers and it could bring much more of them under the conservative banner. Food for thought.

China is Canada’s Mordor and they already own or are buying off “our” politicians on the Federal, Provincial and even municipal level, just connect the dots and follow the money. To call “our” politicians worthless traitors would be an understatement.
commented 2017-05-03 23:01:49 -0400
Another treacherous act of our Liberals, not working for the middle class, but on it to destroy it. Can’t believe they are even asking China to bring in low-paid exploited foreign workers to enrich the corrupted billionnaires of China. If those who voted for them are not convinced that this globalist gov’t is corrupted and have only hatred for them, then there is nothing we can do.
The analysis made by Dr. Hanson was very interesting. The current generation at schools have been betrayed by their parents, teachers and the rest. I feel sorry for them because they will suffer greatly. They have not been equiped with a strong serious education and that is a shame.

No matter which party rules Canada, will be unrecognizable in less than a decade. Metro cities already are.
For almost 9 years under conservatives we had the highest intake of TFW & overall immigration since 1910, which under present economic & civil condition is completely unwarranted. Not to mention the 750,000 mohammedans conservatives let in as immigrants in 9 short years.
What we actually need is a blanket ban on TFW & drastically cut the annual immigration number as Australia has proposed.

Prof Hanson. Lefty communists are “lie-dependent”.
Ezra is right, Lefty’s were never “for” Free Speech. It was the excuse they used to promote their ideas til they got on top. Now that they’re there, they show their true colours and try to end it, otherwise it might undo all their advances. In other words . . . we’ll use Free Speech to our advantage til we take over, then we’ll end it! What you’re seeing is part two of their plan.

Tommy’s doing a GREAT job!! He’s using that microphone as a weapon and I’m thrilled! I hope he files charges against that politician and her henchmen.

Keep expanding Ezra. It’s a way to unite the right. The Rebel has taken on a life of it’s own, so run with it. You don’t know how important this could be down the road. I have a sneaky suspicion it might be VERY important in due course.

“Will Trudeau let China bring thousands of peasant-style labourers to Canada?” …Does Pinocchio have a wooden scrote? Troo-d’oh is owned. He’s a globalist Bxxxxh. He’s in debt and he’s a sleaze bag – China will salt his retirement savings Trudeau Foundation and will exploit Canadian resources as they have everywhere else they are allowed to operate by compromised debtor nations.

Ezra, if you don’t like masked rioters, get your reporters to start demanding that the cops enforce Bill C-309 which makes it illegal to wear a face covering during riots and demonstrations. It will only stop when cops stop cowering in the bushes, and start earning thier $100,000 per year +, to enforce Canadian Laws!!!

He despises Canada.

He loves communists.

Talking about crime in Baltimore, when in business a have a good friend (Sonny). he lives 2 blocks from the stadium. One day when I was at his home we went to see the stadium he cautioned me never walk around this neighbourhood alone he said always to go with him because it’s too dangerous. Being a Canadian I didn’t know why it is because I’m white and my good friend is black. Sonny always wanted to get out of Baltimore and move to a warmer clime

- Is there anything Trudeau wouldn’t allow from a foreign dictatorship? Has Trudeau ever had the slightest concern for the Canadian people? What will Canadians get from Trudeau selling them out? We’ll get the Chinese style dictatorship Trudeau loves so much – a little at a time.

- These antifa beta terrorists need to be locked up. The more they get away with, the bolder they’ll get.

- What we’re seeing with the clash of “progressives” & their opponents is the ongoing clash between the constrained & unconstrained view of humanity. The constrained view is that humans are corruptible & must be limited in their power over others. The unconstrained view is that of the noble savage, where humans are basically perfect but are corrupted by artificial social constructs & can be engineered to perfection. The constrained view has led to unbelievable prosperity. The unconstrained view has led to mass murder, hopelessness & ruin. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lqUiE-vJ-64&t=34s – It’s also a great book (A Conflict of Visions – by Thomas Sowell)
