The international Left are enacting policies that make no sense.
That’s why right-wing populist governments have come into power in various countries.
And a globalist leader is doubling down on one problem that has become a full-blown crisis.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has become an international avatar for the “woke” religion of Progressivism.
Trudeau has jumped on every single far-left cause and denounced his detractors.
For instance, Trudeau refused to meet with members of the Trucker Freedom Convoy who protested COVID mandates because they were “racists” and “Nazis,” even though many of the truckers were Sikhs and other minorities.
Now Trudeau is calling for more immigration into the country, despite housing shortages and strained public resources.
Immigration Minister Marc Miller announced, “Our worker-to-retiree ratio has dropped from 7-1 since I was born 50 years ago to nearly 3-1 now. If we don’t welcome more newcomers, that number will approach 2-1 in the decades ahead, and that will put our infrastructure and key programs like our healthcare and education at risk. I’m pleased to share that Canada intends to maintain its target of welcoming 485,000 new permanent residents in 2024, and 500,000 in 2025. Starting in 2026, the number of newcomers we aim to welcome will stabilize at 500,000, allowing for a sustainable population growth. These immigration levels allow us to bring in the skills and talent we need to fill the labor gaps and ensure Canada’s economic prosperities, help families reunite, and remain a leader in refugee resettlement.”
European countries made a similar calculation in order to save their overstressed pension programs, but they foolishly believed that the new arrivals would eventually return to their countries of origin.
They understandably stayed long-term, which meant they were put on the dole as well.
Instead of reforming programs and/or encouraging and incentivizing the populace to have more children, left-wing governments have instead chosen to import waves of new people.
On top of that, the leftist education system encourages immigrants to reject the culture of the host nation and resent Western civilization.
That’s how the children of immigrants often turn out to be radical activists.
Do the math right
Also, the Trudeau government is undercounting the number of immigrants into the country.
True North reported that Trudeau’s “plan only includes permanent residents. Canada also takes in temporary residents such as temporary foreign workers and international students, as well as refugees…An August 2023 CIBC (Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce) Capital Markets report estimated that Canada is undercounting the number of non-permanent residents living in the country by nearly one million.”
So Canada is likely taking in closer to 1 million people.
That number is similar to what the United States allows legally each year, but Canada’s population is only 40 million.
That means 2.5% of the country’s population is entering in one year.
These unsustainable levels of immigration coupled with an anti-Western educational system, suggest that Canada and other countries on a similar trajectory are in for a rough ride.
