    Historic high to number of Canadians, 49% say immigration level is too high: Angus Reid

    http://angusreid.org/canadian-immigration-trend-data/

    August 21, 2018 – Against the backdrop of more frequent, and increasingly fraught conversations about policy regarding immigration and migration to Canada, analysis of current and historical public opinion data by the Angus Reid Institute finds that half of Canadians would prefer to see the federal government’s current immigration targets of 310,000 new permanent residents for 2018 decreased.

    For those currently opposed, the qualifications of immigrants do not appear to matter. While Canadians are generally positive about the economic benefits of immigration for the country, across each of the three major classes of permanent residents – economic, family and refugee/humanitarian – a majority of those who say immigration is too high also say that each of these individual group totals should be reduced.

    As immigration targets have risen from 260,000 to 310,000 between 2014 and 2018, so too have the number of people saying there should be fewer immigrants

    Trudeau is losing the issue and the Liberals know it.

    Look for more "YOU'RE A RACIST" outbursts from Trudeau, Butts et al as they further lose the narrative.

    Immigration Canada -- the Billion Dollar Boondoggle ?
    Aug 20, 2018
    [not worth watching]


    Spending about a billion dollars -- we actually don't know the amount but it's getting in the neighbourhood of a billion dollars
    - $250+ million in this year federally for processing
    - Ontario asking for $200 million
    - Quebec asking for $146 million
    - IRB costs
    - Eventual removal costs

    Legal immigration is one thing but simply allowing anyone to walk across our borders is insanity not to mention terribly disrespectful of the people who immigrate here legally.

    I think that's what most people are upset about.
