T o Contribute To Or Take Advantage Of?: Looks Like We Need Another Head Tax.

In their latest weekly bulletin ImmigrationWatchCanada brings our attention to some very frank words from a Chinese national who, I assume, may also be a Canadian citizen.

As offensive as it may be I appreciate the honest words. For once we are told the open truth straight from the horses mouth about what is driving much Asian immigration to Canada untainted by the official multicultural propaganda that works to mask it. It also explains why Chinese immigrants are almost total failures when it comes to assimilating choosing instead to establish and live in functioning colonies within any host society they introduce themselves into. Sadly I feel the attitude on display is inveterate to the Chinese community which is often coupled with a smug sense of cultural superiority.

I'm sure they don't realize it but such behaviour contributes to social tensions and be the spark that ignites the powder keg. Malaysia, Indonesia, and the Philippines have all witnessed anti-Chinese riots in their histories.

Vancouver had an anti-Asian riot in 1907 in response to the downward pressure on incomes Asian immigration into the city was effecting. More akin to human trafficking than immigration the government sought to discourage it by cutting into the smugglers' profits by enacting a head tax. This is why the United States had a head tax of its own. By doing so Ottawa was protecting the interests of working Canadian citizens and if the head tax was the way to do it then it was the right thing to do.

Recently anti-Chinese graffiti popped up in Vancouver and southern Ontario experienced a series of events called "nippertipping." Is it racism or have Asian immigrants, particularly Chinese immigrants, brought this negative attention upon themselves? If Asian immigrants have no desire to assimilate and see Canada as a country to be taken advantage of then why encourage it? Why tolerate it from anyone? You don't have much respect for a spouse who only loves you for your money.

These are the fruits of accepting too many immigrants from too few sources. Canada accepts too many immigrants for China and from Asia as a whole. This is an assimilation and loyalty problem so the solution would be to diminish any Asian influence in the country by reducing Asian immigration as a whole especially from China. This will encourage assimilation and they will become Canadians. It worked for the Japanese, it can work for the Chinese.

What are you surprised about? The taken advatage of can be the least bad that can happen to you. Now immigrants can openly threat the Canadian government on the publicly funded "national" television: Employ us, or face jihad. See the video:

Having seen this, I have bad news to all heritage Canadians: your country is gone forever and will never be back.

Canada hosts the largest ex-pat Somali population outside of Africa thanks in whole to the refugee system.

Somalis have one of the highest drop out rates in Toronto secondary schools reaching above 30%.

They also are, as a community, one of the most impoverished.

Around half of Somalia's tentative government officials have Canadian citizenship.

One time Canada was playing baby-sitter to Mohamed Farrah Aidid's second wife and kids who lived in a sizable house in London, ON while on social assistance.

As a fun fact Somalia didn't have a functioning alphabet until the mid 1970s.

It seems Canada has inherited more from Somalia then just colourful costumes and ethnic food. By importing so many Canada is increasingly being drawn into a conflict it has nothing to do with; just like we are in Sri Lanka with so many Tamils. Witnessing this some still have the nerve to tell us that multiculturalism works.

Perhaps relocating these people to Canada wasn't a smart idea and maybe their asylum needs could have been met another way.

I remember this...she claimed refugee status then returned to Somalia for months at a time to return to Canada and give birth. Where did liar and fraud end up.

"Is it racism or have Asian immigrants, particularly Chinese immigrants, brought this negative attention upon themselves?"

Of course they have brought it on themselves. The Conservation Authority had to establish new rules to curb asian exploitation of fisheries resources. In short, place like Mountsberg were being strip mined.
