If you want to protect and preserve Canada, stop immigration for at least 50 years

2013 Immigration Levels Planning: Public and Stakeholder Consultation

This concludes the online questionnaire. Do you have any additional comments about Canada’s immigration system regarding levels and mix?

I have just taken the survey and these are my concluding comments:

If you want to protect and preserve Canada, stop immigration for at least 50 years.
Do not import workers when Canadians have no jobs.
Do not force Canadians to compete with affirmative action and minority quotas implemented by every major industry in Canada, as well as government jobs.
Do not lure immigrants with university diplomas to Canada only to ask them to return to school.
Do not import people who will live on social welfare.
Do not humiliate hard working Canadians forcing them to pay for parasitical immigrants.
Take care of those who are already in Canada and respect the laws of this country.
Do not import people whose only goal is to re-create their mini-societies or change our mainstream society to be accommodated.
Shifting immigration from European to non-European was not only a huge mistake, but also a cultural crime.
Canada IS a Christian country, founded by French, English and Aboriginal peoples.
The languages spoken in public services in Canada should be only those of the above mentioned groups.
I am an immigrant myself and I consider that being in Canada is a privilege, not a right.
I am here to contribute to the mainstream society, not to “my community”.
My community IS Canada, my people IS the Canadian people.
People claim to have chosen Canada to “give their children a better education”, but send their children to their religious schools.
People come to Canada and want to change our society to fit with their own customs and traditions.
How far can Canada go with accommodating everyone?
How long will it take until certain groups will demand to change the national anthem, our country’s name and require certain languages to be listed as official languages of Canada?
Jason (allow me to call you Jason), I deeply respect and admire you.
I hope that one day I’ll have the honour of meeting with you and discussing immigration related issues.
Please, take care of our Canada.
Thank you and good luck!
