Multiculturalism does not work unless people adhere to the culture of their new country. Unfortunately due to different languages and different religions of new immigrants, many new immigrants never seek to assimilate into the culture of their new country. The anti-immigration backlash is happening all over the world.
The anti-immigration backlash is being felt in almost all developed countries around the world and the effects are starting to be felt in Canada. Immigration has been far too high in Canada and you can have a look at the chart below to decide for yourself if you agree:
How can anybody explain this level of immigration rationally? When are we going to curtail our immigration levels? NEVER in the history of this country have we allowed such high immigration without taking a few years of decreased immigration to allow for the assimilation of these people.
If you have noticed that there has been a serious demographic change in this country, well there has been. Below is the chart of the country of origin for new immigrants.
-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?
The problem is Vancouver is beyond words. Every culture hates each other. The Chinese are in one part of the city, whites in another, and browns in another.
The Chinese are quite frankly taking over Vancouver and are showing NO RESPECT for our culture at all. They are sticking up signs with no English on them, showing absolutely no effort whatsoever of assimilating within our culture. I'm a 4th generation Canadian and I'm watching my city/country getting bought out by FOREIGNERS! The only common bond between all cultures in Vancouver..... we all can't stand the new Chinese that are plaguing our city. No one likes them including the generation Canadians of Chinese decent.
In Vancouver there is no intermingling of business. The Asians buy from the Asians, Middle Easterners buy from Middle Easterners, etc etc. There are areas/malls in Vancouver that are completely off limits to me as a Caucasian business owner. In Vancouver, the immigrant population has driven down our wages and increased our cost of living .
Immigration needs reform NOW....bad, bad things will happen in our future if we do nothing about it now. Racism is growing fast in Vancouver and it seems like it is growing exponentially in Canada. We as Canadians must realize that there are limits on the amount of different cultures we can allow and still protect our own culture.
Sometimes there are people that express some of our sentiments in one speech. Here's one of the best random speeches I've found courtesy of some British lady:
Thumbs up to this lady,we all need to start speaking up like she did.
If you think immigration is a problem, here is the link to the Canadian government questionnaire on immigration
They say it takes 1/2 an hour to fill out but it took less than 5 minutes for me to fill out. Please choose the "reduce" immigration when prompted....immigration is destroying our country and culture.
