How come Canada needs an immigrant work force? My son is out of work and hasn't found a job in months. What is wrong with my son filling a job. Something is wrong using immigrant labor when there is workers here born and raised in the country. Think about it!

I am not one bit against immigrants, the country is big and needs to be developed, but think of the citizens first including Aborigines 90 percent unemployed before you go abroad saying you have a shortage of workers. Okay!

Foreign workers are still foreign workers taking away Canadian jobs and it doesn't matter if they are from Asia, Europe, South America, Africa, or anywhere. They can train and foster Canadian citizens first for any jobs. The companies and government only wants to bring in more temporary foreign workers as a tool to force down wages, benefits, and up corporate profits. It is all just a sham scam. At the same time the foreign workers don't know anything and are ripped off with crazy "processing fees" to come to work for Canadian companies. It looks like a racket to me, where people get scraped on the way in and out.
