Justin Trudeau intends to admit 300,000 immigrants into Canada in 2016 -- the largest amount ever admitted in a single year. These will not be skilled foreign workers, either. Many will be immigrants' spouses and other relatives, or simply economic migrants.
Despite how both parties try to sell us immigration by saying it's either good for the economy or good for diversity, with our current system the taxpayer almost always loses. This Fraser Institute study lays out the facts.
Canada needs a better selection process if we want migration to have a positive impact on Canadians and our economy.
We've become a country hell-bent on helping foreigners instead of helping our own citizens.
I want my tax dollars going towards making Canada a better place to live, and helping other Canadians.
Unfortunately that is not the case under our pathologically altruistic government.
