Mass Immigration Is Undermining Canada's Health Care System.

Canadians are told ad nauseam by our betters in the media and in politics that multiculturalism, and by default mass immigration that supports it, is one of several things that defines Canada to the world. This is an odd thing to say since multiculturalism and mass immigration are effectively erasing two key characteristically Canadian icons that most Canadians cherish over multiculturalism and would agree that defines the nation more so.

The first one is ice hockey. Immigrants don't play ice hockey. They play soccer and cricket and it is only a matter of time before soccer and cricket surpass hockey in popularity relegating that sport to a niche interest played by Canada's future minority white population. This is a sad fate that awaits Canada's national pass time since Canada is one of a few countries in the world to produce a sport that is also played internationally. What kind of future does ice hockey have when most of the population of the country of that sport's birth are completely indifferent to it? What about the Grey Cup, one of Canada's biggest sporting events?

The other tragedy will be Canada's health care system. Canada cannot afford a mass immigration system and a public health care system at the same time. The former will eventually bankrupt the latter.

Here is a Toronto Star article about the lack of hospital services in Toronto's growing 905 region (so called because of the area code). The region's hospital services cannot keep up with its population growth. The 905 area is also where many immigrants are now settling instead of the city of Toronto itself driving that region's population growth rate. Is there a relation between immigrant settlement patterns and over stressed health care services? Of course there is. A visit to any hospital ER in Toronto should make this point obvious.

Toronto and the surrounding region attracts the bulk of immigrants to the nation. Without a corresponding growth in the number of practicing doctors, other health care sector workers, and services as well it should come to no surprise that Canada has a doctor shortage and that wait times have increased.

Many will argue that Canada doesn't have a doctor shortage but a problem recognizing foreign medical credentials. I think this is true for some since Canada's professional classes have erected the artificial barrier of "Canadian experience" (what does that even mean?) to protect their salaries from the negative effects of mass immigration. But the elephant in the room is that many if not most foreign trained medical professionals are not up to par with Canadian standards with some possessing falsified documents. This bit of information creeps up in the few instances when a representative of Canada's health care sector is allowed to speak candidly.

Then there is the question of whether Canada's immigrant population have paid enough in taxes to support the use of Canada's health care system or are they being subsidized by Canadians?

Canada's health care system is experiencing unnecessary stress due to mass immigration most of which is itself unnecessary and superfluous. This is of little concern to Canada's politicians who can easily afford private health insurance and fly to the United States if need be while courting the ethnic vote with promises of more immigration and eased immigration laws. For those they represent this is not an option. If Canadians realized that mass immigration is helping to bankrupt the health care system then they would demand action and a reduction of immigration numbers which is why such a discussion is not allowed. But Canadians must decided what they cherish more: mass immigration or health care? I think the choice is obvious.

As a non-Canadian, I've always felt that it was the Canadian people who defined Canada. And by the Canadian people, I mean the historic European Christian majority population of that country, not the millions of Third Worlders with Canadian passports.

Speaking of Third World immigration and the "diversity" it is bringing to Canada, I found this article most interesting.

1) Historically, multiculturalism was never what 'defined' Canada. Starting in the 1960s, with the new-left revolution, someone else started defining Canada for us.

2) The "ethnic vote" has nothing to do with it. Nationally, immigrants are about 20% of the population and visible minorities are around 16% of the population. Thus, politicians would do better by trying to appeal to the masses of Canadians who are against the neo-colonization agenda.

Call them out by name!

The weakness of this blog is that it focuses on the symptoms of the problem, rather than the source. Who have been the biggest lobbyists for open borders, pluralism, and hate speech laws across the Western world? What do they feel they stand to gain from it? Who were the primary pushers of cultural marxism and far-left ideologies throughout the 1960s? Look at their last names. Who controls the media (and Hollywood)that tells us how we should feel about multiculturalism?

While White liberals, the political parties, and immigrant advocacy groups do share a great deal of responsibility for the state we're in, they too are symptoms. White Christian civilization did not commit mass suicide by itself. We have been subverted by alien forces who have much to gain from the weakening of our society.

The answer is an uncomfortable one that stands against everything we're told to believe about these people. But from what I can tell, it is the cold hard truth, and one that we can't afford to ignore. Otherwise we're just spinning our wheels.

You're right. Multiculturalism is a pet hobby of the elite establishment where they enjoy the benefits (eating at some exotic restaurant or something) and where the rest of us pay the costs.

The "ethnic vote" has nothing to do with it.

The "ethnic vote" has a lot to do with it. In Toronto, due to clustering, it is the swing vote in many urban and suburban ridings. The same can be said in most of Canada's urban centers and these are voter rich areas. In some instances the "ethnic vote" is the vote.

Call them out by name!

I don't know what you mean by that but if you mean what I think you mean then no, there is no Zionist Jewish conspiracy to control Canada or the world and I find the whole thing laughable.

I apologize if this is not what you mean but I know my blog will attract white supremacists and anti-Semites and I want nothing to do with these people and will delete overtly racist and anti-Semitic remarks. Whites are not superior by virtue of their race and I happen to appreciate and admire the Jewish people. Indeed, I think the Jewish people are exemplary of what Canada should be: a diverse people bound by language, history, and cultural and religious traditions, etc., topped by a rich intellectual culture.

This is the most critical discussion relating to Immigrating to any country. Skill sets do play a vital role in settlement.

Found a nice article at digg.com "Top 10 reasons -- why immigrants fail", check out:

Top 10 Reasons --Why New Immigrants fail.

OR check out the original website,

Canada is Waiting

Good luck.

Can anyone recommend the well-priced Script Deployment software for a small IT service company like mine? Does anyone use Kaseya.com or GFI.com? How do they compare to these guys I found recently: [url=http://www.n-able.com] N-able N-central remote software access
[/url] ? What is your best take in cost vs performance among those three? I need a good advice please... Thanks in advance!

I think you're receiving too many negative comments on this article. You speak the truth and people don't like that. As a sufferer of a chronic disease, I am all too familiar with waiting rooms and delayed surgeries.
Furthermore, I'm sick and tired of watching the things that make Canada special (Ice hockey, Christmas trees, etc) being squashed to accommodate immigrating cultures. Diversity my ass.
Thank you for this article.
