Just this May, Canada was faced with a miniature migration crisis. After tens of thousands of immigrants of Caribbean and African descent have flooded in through the Quebec Border, a report released by the Independent Review of the Immigration and Refugee Board on Tuesday July 28th has confirmedly concluded that Canada is, indeed, faced with  irregular influxes in illegal immigration in addition to a backlog building up. Right away in the forward, the review concludes that:

“Today, the refugee determination system is at a crossroads. Once again it is dealing with a surge in claims that it is ill-equipped to manage, running the risk of creating a large backlog that, if not tackled promptly, may take years to bring to final resolution.”

adding further that,

“Not only have claims substantially increased in 2017, reaching almost 50,000 in the calendar year, but the surge has been dominated by illegal border crossings in an effort by claimants to avoid the provisions of the Safe Third Country Agreement with the United States, which would likely make many ineligible to file a refugee claim in Canada.”

(For those of you who don’t know, the Safe Third Country Agreement was designed to manage the flow of immigrants between Canada and the U.S., but with our weak borders, this situation is not being properly managed.)

Only two days ago, even the Mayor of Toronto, John Tory, conceded that he needed help and couldn’t manage influx of refugees and asylum seekers on its own. It is looking like Quebec, Ontario, and Manitoba will be receiving a $50 million dollar pledge from Immigration minister Ahmed Hussen in order to deal with this issue, which doesn’t quite live up to the $64 million demanded by Tory from provincial and federal governments. This is also in addition to the 3 million already pledged by the province, and the 6.8 million dollar operating cost. Furthermore, Toronto has had to close down its community shelters, which could be housing its own homeless population, or even the homeless native population, at a decreased cost, provided it wasn’t faced with the crisis that it is. And that is one of many other things such money could go towards.

It is also worth noting that since 2014, and since Trudeau’s immigration policy came into effect, the rate of shootings has increased in Toronto since 2014. According to a recent Toronto Sun interview with Toronto Police Association President Mike McCormack, “In 2014, Toronto saw 177 shooting occurrences and 242 shooting victims. By 2016, there were 407 occurrences and 581 victims — numbers that remained similarly high last year and through the first five months of 2018.” Is it any wonder that this should be occurring in concurrence with an influx in immigrants from countries with relatively high crime rates? Some might say this is a matter of correlation and not causation, but I think it’s a little more than a coincidence…

On November 1, 2016, Ahmed Hussen expressed his hope to admit 1 million immigrants by 2020, adding that by 2036 he wanted 100% of Canada’s population growth to be through immigration. In light of this, it is worth noting that European descended Canadians, once having comprised 97% of the population, only make up 75% as it stands. Given the birth rate of European descended Canadians in contrast with many other ethnic minorities, this puts us at a demographic disadvantage, and those who migrate to Canada for the standard of living provided by Western Culture and a European-descended majority, ultimately stand to loose what they came here for. With decreasing birth rates among European-Canadians, rising suicide rates among white males, and increasing divorce rates in Canada, the Western family and its ethnic foundation are in jeopardy in our once-great nation.
