Jobless rate hits 7% — but Trudeau wants MORE unskilled migrants

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Statistics Canada says the unemployment rate is now seven per cent. Not one journalist has asked John McCallum, the immigration minister, or his boss, "Little Potato," if it makes sense to bring in thousands of low-skill workers from the Third World to Canada right now.

These refugees aren’t PhDs, engineers and entrepreneurs.

Le Devoir says 77 per cent of the ones being dumped in Quebec don’t speak French OR English.

I know a company that wants to hire a few thousand people. It’s called Trans-Canada Pipelines. Add the Northern Gateway and Transmountain pipelines and that’s $35 billion worth of jobs. The Petronas fracking pipelines, and you’re now over $60 billion. Canada’s unemployment rate would fall two whole points.

Then we really would need to import workers — but probably not illiterate Syrians…

NEXT: Howard Anglin, Executive Director of the Canadian Constitutional Foundation, talks about Dr. Brian Day's trial and what it means for increasing access to private health care in Canada. (Learn more at

THEN: Connor Whitehouse, the President of the Yukon Conservative Association, joins me to talk about electoral reform.

We should make this young guy our honorary Yukon correspondent — I think you'll like his style!

FINALLY: Your messages to me about this week's news!

So Mr. T wants more unskilled immigrants. How about a referendum?
Internet Tuffguy is right. I have posted this same fact in many places. Why would immigrants be settled in Iqaluit? There are no jobs and life there is utterly foreign to them. The answer? Outbreed the indigenous people and secure the land for the caliphate.

Well this seems to make perfect sense from a partisan perspective because all the Trudeau supporters we see coming on here to defend him are career jobless.

Ezra please post your opening statement on the outside of the pay wall. This is such an important issue and your analysis is fantastic. It just may bring you more paying customers too ;)

You nailed it!
Liberal/Democratic Socialism is destroying the spirit, drive to work hard and succeed, desire for applicable constructive education, promotes welfare and the welfare mommy, wants to take over the raising of our children……..
Where do I stop here? The list is never ending.
Western Society is being eliminated by these assholes, and the press is their Department of Propaganda!

it would be nice to have the jobs pipelines will bring but needless to say as long as notley and trudeau are in no pipeline will EVER be built. they do not care that thousands are desperate for work. their advice is, move.

If you try to defend yourself, the government will arrest you!
Effectively seizing your life.
If you’re sick, the government will decide if you can have medical care or not.
Effectively seizing your life.
If you’re a landlord, the government will dictate if you can raise the rent, evict a tenant or sell your rental ppty.
Effectively seizing your ppty
If you get a divorce, the government will decide if you get to see your kids or not.
Effectively seizing control of the lives of your children and yourself

If you follow the outcomes of each of these threads, you’ll see the results are a disaster.
Due to the legal system charging victims, it encourages criminals and creates a mean society,
Due to the gov’s largess in health care, one can lose their life, or become disabled, not only ruining that person’s life, but the cost to taxpayers for a now-high maintenance person is drastically higher.
Due to the Tenant Tribunals, more landlords get out of the business each year than get in, lowering the vacancy rate and raising rents.
When it comes to divorce, the havoc the gov is wreaking on society is so huge I couldn’t possibly list it all here. Let’s just say that 70% of criminals come from fatherless homes, plus their victims etc etc . . .

We’re too socialist in this country, and we need to start fighting back. I appreciate this health care case going on our in BC. All the best!!

This Connor guy is a natural. He even understands the Liberals .

La P’tite Patate is PM because he has hair and good socks; many of the Ministers are there because they are females. No other skills required.

Chronic Condition is an excellent book, now considered the bible of the Cdn Health care and worth reading. The best health care systems in the world are a combination of public and private.

As for the media waffling and wondering what Cdn values are, I remind everyone that Trudeau said Canada doesn’t have any core values. So I think they’ve taken their lead from him, as they’ve done on other issues!

I have been laughing for 2 days about " Little Potato" new name. On the other hand, it is very embarrassing for our country to be represented by someone who has no balls. As for Maryam Monsef, obviously she was not trained properly to run supposedly dialogue sessions with the population, when she is actually just doing monologues. That whole process is a joke. DIALOGUE: 2 way street. So really she is just a puppet. It is a waste of people time and a pretense that they are getting the public opinion. They are just doing their show.

How much of a salary would you have to earn to be EQUAL to a Muslim with 5 kids and living on Welfare? I doubt that Justin even understands the term——tax -free.
commented 2016-09-09 21:58:05 -0400
If the government says its 7% it’s probably double or triple that.
commented 2016-09-09 21:38:37 -0400
Justin has never worked at a real job, so as usual he is clueless
commented 2016-09-09 21:32:34 -0400
Awesome job Justin, people do not need silly things like jobs, they can just take money from a trust fund eh?
commented 2016-09-09 21:31:15 -0400
Marilyn if there is a private option then the public doctors will have less to deal with and the wait time will not be so bad. When Ralph Klein contracted private companies for labs and imaging here in Alberta the wait times for those services went away , i have been in and out for blood and urine tests in a matter of 10 minutes. Sometimes there is lots of people waiting but it still moves along.

Irresponsible doesn’t even begin to describe the idiocy of this migrant program in a time of low employment and shrinking economy.

Don’t worry Trudope knows what hes doing
commented 2016-09-09 21:04:03 -0400
Okay, let me get this right. When you have an on-going chronic medical condition, but need to wait for one to two years for some disaffected doctor to see you, you then have the freedom to pay an exorbitant price for treatment out of your own pocket. Great idea! Or until you are bankrupt. So sorry.

Or, as was suggested in this video, you can sign up with a private health insurance program. Anyone ever looked into this pointless choice? Maybe, if you are employed by a large company, you may get reasonably affordable coverage, but all of them come with quite a few restrictions. However, just wait until you are unemployed. Poof! All gone.

Another thing about health insurance companies, if you were to take it out when you are already suffering from a “pre-existing” medical condition, insurance companies will either not cover you, or will charge you so much that you would rather be dead.

For someone I so much admire as Ezra Levant, I cannot believe that he is flouting this fundamentally harmful and flawed idea.

There is no way that a workable, feasible and user-friendly health care system could possibly exist with our current government here in Canada.

There is no time in space. How can it be gauged? No planet, no sun

- Trudeau’s economic policies are only a failure if you believe he’s trying to do good for Canadian’s. If you believe he’s trying to run Canada’s economy into the ground then Prime Minister Little Potato is right on track.

- Some people would rather see Canadians die than admit that the private sector can do very many things better than the public sector.

- Great to hear from young Conservatives in far flung areas. If the Liberals try to push this election “reform” through without getting the consent of the voters they will face a revolt.

Their not being brought here to work, duh. They are here to replace us “old stock” canadians , and form a new voter base for the libtards. omar alghabra"s reward for opening the door of every mosque coast to coast.

Ezra. My knee replacement in Ontario took 4 1/2 years. I had NO meniscus, and Dr. and I both agreed I needed a replacement. He suggested cortisone shots to ease pain. Little did I know this was a stalling technique. As long as you are getting injections, you are NOT on the list. 3 years later I asked why I hadn’t got it done yet, he FINALLY put me on the list! Had it done a year later!

Trudope wants the “refugees” to disrupt our society allowing him to impose dictatorship!

Small potatoes or mr nothing thinks that well placed Syrians in strategic areas ( where Conservatives are) will vote for the Liberals and he will eventually have 90% of the parliamentary seats . Huh bet they wont even vote.
