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.

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.
