Immigration Watch Canada petition: Tell Canada’s politicians to cut our immigration intake

Tell Canada's politicians to cut our immigration intake.

Tell Canada’s politicians to cut our immigration intake.

If you believe that Canada admits too many immigrants, you’re not alone. Polls show that about half of your fellow citizens, including immigrants, feel that Canada admits too many immigrants.

Since 1991 Canada has admitted about 250,000 newcomers to the country each year, and some want to increase that level to 500,000! Yet no regard is given to the economic, environmental, social and cultural impacts that current immigration levels are having on Canada.

Whenever I hear that the new federal Liberal government is preparing to undo a policy or law put in place by its Tory predecessors under Stephen Harper, I remember Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s boast on the day he and his cabinet were sworn in. Finally, he gloated, “we have our country back.”

Culture Wars: The Battle For The Soul Of Canada

The recent election of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau ushered in not only a new era of politics within Canada, but more broadly speaking, a new era within Canadian society as a whole. Interestingly, the roots of this era began with another Prime Minister by the name of Trudeau—Justin’s father, Pierre.

In basic terms, it was former Liberal Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau who brought into existence the post-modern era of multicultural Canada. At the time, few Canadians appeared to object— not that they had any choice in the matter. Simply put, Trudeau Sr. made a decision on behalf of all Canadians  to eradicate our nation’s bi-cultural English and French identity, and replace it with what he termed “multiculturalism within a bi-lingual framework.”

A succession of Liberal and Conservative governments would follow, all of which fully endorsed Multicultural policy— including its mandate to deliver hundreds of millions in tax dollars each year to third world-oriented immigration and multicultural organizations. It was over the next several decades— with the helping hand of leading journalists and media outlets— that the diversity ethos permeated our social consciousness to the degree that it became fully sacrosanct within Canadian society.

It would not be until the election of Stephen Harper’s Conservative government in 2006 that this virulent brand of political correctness began to be questioned. Much of this was precipitated by a rise in a variety of contentious issues related to Islamic law— for example, a lady who insisted on covering her face with a “niqab” during her citizenship ceremony. Additional public discontent was also stirred up through the senseless murder of Corporal Nathan Cirillo at the hands of an Islamic fundamentalist.

Hungarian Roma family hiding in Hungary can return to Canada

Canada’s door reopened to deported Roma family

After years of living in hiding on two continents, the Pusuma family has been thrown a lifeline by the Trudeau government, which has agreed to allow them to return to Canada on humanitarian and compassionate grounds.

Jozsef Pusuma, his wife, Timea Daroczi, and their daughter Viktoria (Lulu) have received word from the Trudeau government that they can finally call Canada home. The family, whown in 2014, had previously sought sanctuary in a Toronto church for three years before returning to Hungary after losing their asylum claim.

The family, whown in 2014, had previously sought sanctuary in a Toronto church for three years before returning to Hungary after losing their asylum claim.

Canada’s door has reopened for a Roma family who were forced to leave the country after they lost their asylum claim amid a long battle to bring their disgraced former lawyer to justice.

After years of living in hiding on two continents — including three years in a Toronto church — Jozsef Pusuma, his wife, Timea Daroczi, and their daughter Viktoria (Lulu) have received word from the Trudeau government that they can finally call Canada home.

The Pusumas left Canada in December 2014 before Toronto lawyer Viktor Hohots admitted to a Law Society Tribunal to professional misconduct in relation to 17 complaints from Roma refugee claimants.

Hohots was suspended from practice for five months and barred from practising refugee law for two years.

The Pusumas had spent three years in sanctuary in a Toronto church and were clinging to the slim hope Canada would allow them to return on humanitarian and compassionate grounds for the wrong done by their former lawyer. They have been in hiding in Hungary ever since.

Two Chinese-Nova Scotians are setting up a mental health support service aimed at the growing community of international students from China.

They say there are few mental health options in other languages, and that causes many Mandarin and Cantonese speakers to turn away from help.

“I’ve always had a passion to help newcomers,” said Jinbo Chen, one of the organizers. “Mental health issues are one of the issues that I really care about.”

Chen moved to Halifax in 2002 as a university student, and remained in Halifax to work and raise a family. 

He says Chinese international students face stress and mental health issues for many reasons, including loneliness and isolation, workload, and parental expectations. 

“A high percentage of them, it’s not because they want to come here — their parents want them to come here,” Chen said. “If they cannot achieve a certain level or score, it might have some stress with their family.”

Chen said many students are also coming to university in their late teens or early 20s, and may struggle with issues such as what direction to take, addiction problems, or romantic problems, all of which could contribute to mental health problems.
