definitely something that Canada needs to be concerned about.

imagine this scenario.. Canada has only 33 million citizens. if they grant Canadian citizenship to 33+ million mainland Chinese who have no loyalty to Canada, what then?

it would be an invasion without any bullets shot.

Canada would be taken over by china without a shot fired.

same scenario would apply to any resource rich country including Australia.

YOUR amigos???

if you think the mainland chinese are your friends, you must be joking.

they are just as racist and territorial as you are.

do you think they would share anything with you?

they don't even want to share the china sea with any of their fellow Asians in southeast asia.

the mainland Chinese look at their usa counterparts as second class citizens. hence, the division between ABC and FOBs.

Both countries signed the Tequila pact recently, and Mexico also lowered immigration restrictions on Chinese, as part of an strategy to increase the quality and diversity of tourists coming to Mexico, China is also an observer member in the Pacific Alliance. And Mexico isn't even the country in Latin America which with China has the best ties! Those would have to be the major South American Commodity exporters like Argentina, Peru, Chile, or Brazil.

Plus, when it comes to racism there are statements like the one from Asian Guy and there are surveys, like this one:
