Hello, Abbotsford. As Canadians, we’ve had enough of our current immigration policies. We are trying to mobilize as many Canadians to try and stop/curb/change immigration since no political party in Canada will.

In Abbotsford, you might not be feeling the full consequences of immigration and multiculturalism yet, but we in Vancouver see it firsthand.

Many people are unaware of the true numbers of immigrants that Canada has been bringing in recently. Below is a chart of the recent levels of immigration (after you hit the link, just scroll down the page)

http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/resources/statis...

From 1860 till 1990 immigration has exceeded 200,000 people a total of 9 times. From 1990-2010 immigration has exceeded 200,000 people 18 TIMES IN 20 YEARS!

9 times in 130 years.....and 18 TIMES in the last 20 YEARS!

Let me repeat that. 9 times we’ve brought in over 200,000 immigrants in 130 years.....and 18 TIMES in the last 20 YEARS!

How can anybody explain this? It’s not just the amount of immigrants we have been bringing in, it is the lack of diversity of our immigrants. Here is a chart showing the country of origin of our recent immigrants. It is shocking

http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/resources/statis...

In 2001, over 32% of our immigrants came from India, China and the Philippines
In 2005, over 35% of our immigrants came from India, China and the Philippines
In 2010, over 34% of our immigrants came from India, China and the Philippines

THIS IS NOT IMMIGRATION! This is getting all of your immigrants from 3 countries, India, China and the Philippines. Where is a balancing of global immigration?

If you put the first chart that shows the abnormally high immigration levels and combine that with the second chart showing the country of origin of new immigrants, where do you see this country headed in the future if we continue with these immigration policies? There are limits on the amount of multiculturalism we can allow and still preserve our Canadian heritage. Many of us feel we are at that limit.

There is a decided difference between what the citizens of Canada want and what corporate Canada wants. We want less immigration, they want more. Here is an article from the Globe and Mail illustrating that difference of opinion.

Here's the quote you should take from this article..."The GLOBE has called for Canada to DOUBLE its level of economic migration, pushing its total immigration to 400,000 new permanent residents a year..."

Huh? Did I just read this correctly? A NEWSPAPER trying to tell us that we should be bringing in MORE immigrants? Immigration has been ridiculously high in recent years and here we have a NATIONAL newspaper blatantly propagating increased immigration?

But Canadians want more immigration though? No they don't. In the article our immigration minister even states, "But Canadians, about 85 per cent, say they DON’T WANT to increase immigration levels........"

So we have a newspaper wanting to increase immigration and we have our own immigration minister saying that 85% of Canadians DO NOT WANT MORE IMMIGRATION!!!!

Who are you here to represent government, the people or the corporations? Just remember, the corporations don't vote for you.....the people do.
