They Have To Go Back! (The Black Guy Said It, Not Me!)

Cardinal Robert Sarah is a prelate in the Catholic Church and the Vatican's chief liturgist.  He hails from Guinea which is a country located in West Africa.

And yes he's black.

He's critical of the socially fashionable causes high ranks in the Church have adopted and one in particular is mass migration whose bandwagon even Pope Benedict XVI has jumped on.

Prompted by the release of a new book he's published the French magazine Valeurs Actuelles sought an interview with him wherein he discusses several topics one being migration.  Here's what he said:
"All migrants who arrive in Europe are penniless, without work, without dignity. ... This is what the Church wants? The Church cannot cooperate with this new form of slavery that has become mass migration. 
"If the West continues in this fatal way," Cdl. Sarah warned, "there is a great risk that, due to a lack of birth, it will disappear, invaded by foreigners, just as Rome was invaded by barbarians. [emphasis added]
"It is better to help people flourish in their culture than to encourage them to come to a Europe in full decadence," the Guinean cardinal opined. "It is a false exegesis to use the Word of God to promote migration." [emphasis added]
This echoes sentiments expressed by the Dalai Lama who pretty much said the same thing.

And let's throw David Suzuki in the mix because why not?

So should we dismiss these men as racists?  I'd like to see someone try that.

Let's ignore the colour of their skin and focus on what they've said and you'll see they have a point and the overall point is this: mass migration does more harm that good.  It's detrimental to the environment, it's economically detrimental to large segments of the receiving society, it's detrimental to the source countries who lose valuable human capital, it's disruptive and destabilizing.  Short-term benefits might be realized in the guise of GDP metrics and bank share prices but long-term consequences are rarely if ever appreciated; the most heinous of them being the complete loss of nation through never ending invasion migration.

It truly is better to help people flourish in their culture than to encourage them to come to the West especially when it's in "full decadence".  These people need to go back and stay there and fix their countries because if they're not going to do it then no one will and invasion migration will never stop and the countries we hold dear to us; the ones we've ever known; the ones we were born in; that were built up by our ancestors, by our people; that we inherited and are obligated to preserve, to grow, to prosper, to pass on to future generations and be remembered by them will be gone forever; extinguished, given away freely by a people who had no right to do so to a people who did nothing to deserve it except walk off an airplane.

It’s Only a Bad Thing When It Happens to My People: Kashmiris in Canada and the Hypocrisy of the Colonizing Immigrant.

I’m confident in my assumption that the demographic changes immigrants are imposing on Canadian society wouldn’t be tolerated by them were it happening to them “back home” in their native lands and Kashmiris in Canada exemplify that mindset.

There was this thing called Article 370 in the Indian constitution that gave the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir autonomous status in all areas of political life except for communications, defense, and foreign affairs.  And as of August 5 of this year Article 370 no longer exists having been abrogated by the Modi government effectively reducing the once autonomous Indian state into the two separate territories subject to the overriding governance of New Delhi.

The repealing of Article 370 has raised the ire of Kashmiris in India and abroad over concerns that the loss of autonomy would invite demographic changes to the region unwanted by the local population.  From the linked Global News piece:

Kashmiris, who identify as a distinct Indigenous society, fear India’s move will alter the region’s demographics and cultural identity [emphasis added]. India said its decision to revoke Kashmir’s special constitutional status and downgrade it from statehood to a territory would free it from separatism.
 
You see Jammu and Kashmir is a Muslim majority territory in India and Kashmiris, who are mostly Muslim, regard themselves as the indigenous people of the region having obtained special rights in the Indian Constitution to secure and preserve their majority status.  Article 35A of Article 370 prevented anyone foreign – which included other Indians – from owning property in Jammu and Kashmir ostensibly to prevent them from permanently living there and overwhelming the local population consequently reducing Kashmiris to a powerless minority.  It’s a law imposed for the sake of self-preservation by a people who want to secure their existence and a future for their children.  The repealing of Article 370 eliminates that law allowing anyone outside the region to now possess property in Jammu and Kashmir and reside there permanently.

Kashmiris in Canada seem to have a problem with that.  While this Global piece focuses on the concerns of Kashmiris unable to contact relatives in Kashmir due to a lockdown this one Kashmiri academic at Wilfred Laurier makes clear that it’s about preserving the Kashmiri ethnostate:

“Pandit, an academic at Wilfrid Laurier University, has written to Freeland demanding four actions in particular. First, she wants Canada to push India to end the lockdown and backtrack on the removal of Article 370. She is calling on the Canadian government to condemn ethnic and religious discrimination in India as well. 
{…} 
Lastly, Pandit says she hopes Canada will push in the United Nations for Kashmir to be given the right to self-determination.”

The call for a reinstatement of Article 370 is a call for the reinstatement of what are essentially xenophobic and racist laws written and enforced for the sole purpose of preserving a Muslim Kashmiri majority ethnostate in Jammu and Kashmir.  And I should emphasize that this call is being made by a Kashmiri in Canada, indeed all Kashmiris in Canada, who I’m certain would object if Canada sought to enact identical laws with the similar goal of keeping Canada majority white.   They’re only in Canada because of a grand project that was undemocratically imposed upon the country’s European host majority society that will, in time, reduce them to a powerless minority in the country of their creation but I don’t think people like Pandit care about that.  It’s only happening to white Canadians in their native country after all and Pandit's contributing to it and benefiting from it so it's no big deal.  It only matters when it happens to her people in her native land.

Kashmiris in Canada want Canada to do something.  Like what exactly?  Lend support to a once autonomous Indian state that had xenophobic and racist laws to preserve its demographic majority?  Why don’t we lend support to Génération Identitaire while we’re at it?

Modi is a Hindu nationalist and I wouldn’t put it past him that this was done to encourage the free movement of India’s Hindu majority into Kashmir to overwhelm its Muslim majority population and to further strengthen Hinduisms dominance in the Asian subcontinent particularly in a region that is also claimed and disputed by India’s neighbour and rival, Pakistan.  Fears of secession by Kashmir haunt New Delhi and a Hindu majority there loyal to India would put to rest any uncertainty.
  
But if that happens then I say so what?  What makes Kashmir so special that it should be protected from the free movement of people?  Who cares if a flood of "foreigners" move into the region forever altering the demographics by reducing the indigenous Muslim Kashmiris to a powerless minority?  Diversity is our strength, etc.  But if Kashmiris are opposed to the loss of land, the loss of culture, the loss of power and place in a society of their creation, the loss of their history, the loss of their identity, the surrendering of their future to a mass intrusion of an alien people who are not native to the region nor of a founding stock then I say welcome to my world.  We should have coffee some time.
 
The lack of self-awareness by these Kashmiri protesters here in Canada is so typical of immigrants and Canadian citizens of non-founding stock.  Their ethnic allegiance blinds them to the reality that what they fear may happen to their people in Kashmir through the repealing of Article 370 is exactly what they are doing to the people of Canada by being present here and maintaining a permanent presence here; by being willing participants, active agents, cheerleaders and beneficiaries in the re-colonization of Canada through mass third-world immigration.   But it’s like I said before and will say and say again: colonialism is great so long as you’re the one doing it.

Won't Someone Think Of The Mattresses!!!???

I should probably update this blog more often than I should if only to remind the only reader I have, if even that, that I haven’t given up the fight and that proper immigration reform is still a crusade of mine even though I wish it wasn’t.  So I’ll take this hilarious Tarek Fatah column in the Toronto Sun as a reason to update it.  Seriously, the column is so dumb in its reasoning how could I ignore it?

The crux of the column is that we should stomp out “immigrant bashing” because without immigrants mattress sales will take a beating.

To those who are convinced Canada should shut its doors to immigrants, imagine for a moment the scenario in just two sectors of the Canadian economy if immigrants went on a strike and refused to come to Canada in 2020.
  1. 200,000 fewer mattresses will be sold along with countless unsold pillows and bedsheets.

Oh, and pillow and bed sheet sales naturally.  Can't leave that out.

In fact his whole argument seems focused on the economics of housing and related industries; house wares, furnishing, etc.; which feeds my suspicions that immigration is being used to prop up the housing market since it’s the only thing driving the Canadian economy at the moment.

He follows the economist’s line of reasoning that a forever growing consumer base is good for the economy and by implication good for everyone.  Therefore just dump people into your economy and everything will work out fine.  If only it were that simple.

Much of the consumer demands these immigrants make are for goods made elsewhere - mostly in poverty wage countries like the ones they come from - by tax dodging, largely U.S. based, transnational corporations and the jobs immigrants' consumer demands create in Canada are mostly low wage precarious jobs in the retail sector.  A growing domestic consumer base only made sense when international trade was less globalized and the means of production was local.

He talks of the tax contributions immigrants make to the public coffers but fails to mention immigrants also consume tax payer funded goods and services such as health care, infrastructure, and public transportation.  We wouldn’t have to worry about the loss in tax revenue if the immigrant weren’t here to have that revenue be spent on.  In fact, it appears immigrants don’t even pay enough in taxes to cover the costs of them being here
.
He says:

According to the financial management magazine Money Sense, it costs over $250,000 to raise a single Canadian 18-year-old adult “consumer” who drives our economy. Shouldn’t Canada pay for this immigrant? Or at the least say thank you?

At least that’s money that was spent in Canada to raise that child.  Immigrants have a tendency to send that money “back home”.

And lastly:

How many of you realize that under one category of “skilled immigrants,” a family of four needs to bring with them a bank draft of $23,542 on landing in Canada. Imagine if this family has to put up with slogans of “welfare cheats” (as was heard in one Mississauga political rally recently).

That’s all?  It should be at least $50,000.  And that’s for those who bothered to come to Canada the legal way under an economic classification.  As a refugee you don’t need squat.

One of the dire “sky is falling” consequences Fatah points out is that rents will fall and enter into a downward spiral.  I don’t see how that’s a problem.  How can an increase in more affordable housing be a concern?  Unless, of course, there’s a downside I’m not seeing but he’s essentially admitting here immigrants are directly contributing to rising housing costs which leads to higher cost of living expenses which leads to less disposable income available for a consumer driven economy to thrive on.  And we don’t fully appreciate how much an influence immigrants have on wages and real incomes.  If immigrants do have a measurable negative effect, no matter how small, on wages and incomes then coupled with inflation that’s even less disposable income available to be spent in a consumer based economy.  There may be more consumers in the market but we all have less money to spend and are therefore worse off.  No wonder Canadians are at record levels of household debt.

I really find it cute having a Pakistani immigrant tells us we need, essentially, more Pakistani immigrants so our country doesn’t turn into Pakistan.  Most of the immigrants coming to Canada are third-world immigrants who are fleeing the failed societies they made for themselves yet we’re supposed to believe them coming here is the key to our prosperity and long-term economic viability.  Funny, isn’t it, how they will prosper Canada but can’t do a damn thing to prosper their native lands?

If what I do here can be construed as “immigrant bashing” then I’m going to bash away.  I’m not going to silently sit by as I watch this nation be given away by a people who have no right to do so to a people who don’t deserve it all for the sake of fluffing a dubious metric like the GDP.  If the people coming here couldn’t do a thing to help prosper their countries then they’re not going to do much for us either and that alone should be enough to disallow them from immigrating.  It's really just charity then now isn't it?

Even Nature Says You Don't Belong Here.

Vitamin D deficiency is apparently a thing among non-whites in northern climes.

Canadian doctors are urging their dark skinned patients to take vitamin D supplements.

How I read this is that it's nature's way of saying you don't belong here much like whites have no business in sun soaked climates.  There's a genetic reason why white nations dominate the list of countries with the highest rates of skin cancer.

But whites can offset the risk of skin cancer by limiting their exposure to the sun.  Non-whites, on the other hand, don't have it that easy.  It gets cold up here in the north necessitating the need to cover up for most of the year and also the days get short reducing one's exposure to the sun.  When you're already genetically disadvantaged to the natural production of vitamin D due to a higher melanin pigmentation covering up just makes it more difficult for your body to naturally produce it.  You can take supplements but the body is much more efficient at producing it naturally and in much larger amounts through the synthesis of UV B rays.  Whites are designed to live in the north.  Non-whites are not.  For non-whites, immigrating here, or anywhere up north, is a health risk.

This is just proof that race exists and that there are differences among them but we already know that.  We just don't care to admit it openly.  How else are the races different?  If some racial groups are less intelligent than others, either by design or evolution, what future does your nation have when you choose to ignore that and allow it to be overwhelmed by lower IQ populations?  I know it's a sensitive topic but ignoring it will have grave consequences not for the county but for humanity as a whole.  I think it will lead us to a new dark ages.

Enough With The Third-World Immigrants Already! They Didn't Prosper Their Countries and They Won't Prosper Ours.


Canada's imbecilic PM appointed a Somali refugee with a law degree from the University of Ottawa to Minister of Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship and it's going along as well as you'd expect it.

When I first read of his appointment my hope sank to new depths it's now finding undiscovered life forms in the deepest parts of the Pacific Ocean.  It’s not like he’s the latest in a long line of illustrious and well reasoned men and women rationally guiding the demographic future of this country.  His predecessor was a former bank shill who came off as one third Jim Lahey, one third Mr. Magoo, and one third that mayor from Jaws.  He characteristically dismissed any legitimate concern of the immigration system with a flippant wave of the hand while carelessly increasing immigration quotas and that seems to be what the minister for immigration’s job is nowadays;  just increase immigration quotas and call it a day.  No consideration of whether we need more immigrants at all, no consideration of the social consequences of mass immigration, no consultation of the people sought, no forethought on technology’s impact on the labour market, no real work whatsoever.  You just show up to the office, increase the numbers, and spend the rest of your time warming a seat in Parliament with an occasional visit to an ethnic folk festival if only to go outside to get some fresh air.  

Indeed, the position is more liaison officer of the sitting government to the country’s kingmaker immigrant/ethnic vote banks than it is a cabinet minister shaping policy.  From Barbara McDougall to Ahmed Hussen; a long line of pension chasing mediocrities whose only accomplishment in office is ensuring the demographic replacement of the founding peoples of this country (but don’t call it a genocide) and the sustained theft of "stolen native land."  

But if you insist on shoveling in as many people as you can into the country from anywhere in the world are the people from the third world the ones to choose from?  Since the internet loves its listicles I present to you my list of reasons why Canada should stop immigration from the third world.

1. They’re From The Third World.

The people make the country, the country does not make the people and the third-world is the third-world because it’s full of third-world people.  Somalia is Somalia because it’s full of Somalis.  The Philippines is the Philippines because it’s full of Filipinos.  Mexico is Mexico because it’s full of Mexicans.  And so on.  “You will know them by their fruits” and their fruits are the societies they made for themselves.
 
European colonialism is often blamed for their lack of economic advancement but that can only take you so far and, besides, it’s been so long now you’re just making excuses for their failings.  Even so colonialism did bring modernity and functional government along with it which some utilized to their benefit post-colonialism while others let it rot.  For those of the later it says a lot about them as a people.  And we’re bringing them here in large numbers.
 
When you import the third-world the third-world is what you’ll get.  Magic-dirt thinking is of the liberal, naïve, idealistic mind convinced that someone will have their third-world essence exorcised from their being simply by having two feet planted on Western territory.  It’s nonsense.  

Genetic factors play a determinant role in shaping us as individuals and collectively as a people and it is apparent large swaths of humanity find themselves swimming in the shallow end of the gene pool.  This is why it doesn’t matter where you were born.  A Somali born in Canada is no different than a Somali born in Somalia.  A bundle of genes doesn’t behave differently because of what piece of land it was pooped out on.  Whether or not you believe in IQ as a valid metric of cognitive ability it’s clear some people are smarter than others and there are genetic reasons for it.  We’re not all equal.  

The mass importation of the third-world into Western civilization doesn’t enrich it and raise it up but brings it down to lower levels in an equalizing effect like when a gust of cold air rushes in and makes uncomfortable a once comfortably warm room.  And considering it is Western civilization that is propelling humanity forward diluting it with third-world populations will not only retard the progress of Western societies, if it doesn’t destroy it outright, it will take the rest of humanity with it.

2. We’re Poaching.

More Canadians move to the U.S. than Americans move north.  It’s a long established phenomenon where only a couple of times in history has that not been the case.  The reason is obvious.  By most metrics the U.S. is a better country than Canada specifically the U.S. offers a greater array of economic opportunities due to its highly diversified economy.  You can tell the level of a Canadian’s success by whether or not he lives here or in the U.S. since the most successful of Canadians tend to live in America.  It truly is the land of opportunity and a magnet for top Canadian talent causing many to lament of a “brain drain.”  But fear not.  What we lose to the U.S. we replace with immigrants not from the U.S., or Britain, or France, or Germany, or Australia, or Japan, for that matter, but immigrants from…the third world.

If the “brain drain” to the U.S. is cause for concern on how it affects the Canadian economy and its ability to compete internationally then Canada is, in practice, exercising its own “brain drain” of the third world and undermining its ability to develop its economies and ability to compete internationally.   We’re hypocrites to complain.  And we’re poaching.  In fact Canada has been singled out by WHO for doing just that.

The third-world needs its talented people more than we need them and oftentimes immigrating to Canada is career suicide.  Stories of “I was an MD in my country and now I’m a cabbie in Canada” are so commonplace now they deserve their own heritage minute.

To ameliorate this wasteful spending of human capital it is suggested Canada expedites the recognition of their professional bona fides to get them quickly engaged in the Canadian labour market but I have a better idea.  How about they stay home and build their countries instead?  A third world education is not on par with Western standards leading many to engage in multiple years of additional training in Canada just catch up.  But imagine what they could accomplish for their native lands had they stayed there or returned with the skills upgrade.  Here they’re just banalities but “back home” they can make a difference which leads me to my next point.

3. Because The Developing World Will Always Remain The Developing World.

The third world is the third world because the people of the third world can’t be bothered to do anything about it.  They just seem to accept it for what it is with a shrug of the shoulders.  But why should they do anything about it at all?  All they have to do is walk off a plane in some Western nation and suddenly their circumstances have changed for the better.  

What they fail to appreciate is that high standard of living, the one they want to obtain instantly from walking off a plane (or illegally crossing aborder) came about through effort, struggle, and sacrifice over generations.  If the developing world wants to get out of the developing phase and into the developed part it’s going to have to make the same effort, struggle, and sacrifice but no one in the third world has the patience for that.  Like impatient demanding children they want it now!  Also it’s too hard.  They want to come to the West to obtain instantaneously the society they can’t be bothered to build for themselves “back home.”

If we close the border to third world immigrants then they’ll be forced to confront the unpleasantness of their societies and be forced to do something about it that future generations can benefit from.  As long as the West allows itself to be open to third world immigration then few, if any, in the third world will be incentivized to make the changes in their countries to correct the conditions that compel them to want to leave in the first place leaving the developing world forever in the state of being the developing world.  Consider closing the borders to them to be an act of tough love.

4. If They Can’t Prosper Their Countries Then They Won’t Prosper Ours.

If third world immigrants were worth a damn then their native countries wouldn’t be in the mess that they are in.  But they are.  Why is that?  It’s because they’re third-worlders and need to go abroad to obtain another’s prosperous society since they can’t create one for themselves.

It’s laughable to hear third world immigrants talk of how they make a contribution to Canada as if the country would fall apart without their help.  To this I say “Look around.  Does it look like we need your help?”  Canada was getting along fine before they arrived and would still do so if they weren’t here.  But you know who could use their contribution?  Their people back in their home countries!

If third world immigrants prospered societies then why is Peel Region so poor?  To think third world immigration will not only maintain the prosperity that exists here but also grow it is borderline lunacy and if you do think so there’s a room at CAMH that’s feeling lonely right now without you.

5. It Makes Third World Governments Lazy.

Some CDN$24 billion is removed from the Canadian economy each year in the form of remittances.  This is money sent abroad to add liquidity to third world economies.  (And this is how third world immigrants contribute to the Canadian economy; by taking money out of it but this isn’t the real problem here.)  This nurtures remittance dependency for third world governments making them lazy to crafting policy that would encourage domestic job growth and long-term sustainable development to tackle poverty reduction.
 
One of the main exports of the Philippines is her people because Manila has become quite comfortable leaving job creation duties to other countries creating a remittance dependant economy.  Even China and India experience heavy inflows of remittances making the three Asian countries the top three largest recipients of remittance money in the world.  (Incidentally they’re also the top three source nations of immigrants to Canada.)  Mind you as a percentage of GDP they’re not as bad as Tonga, Kyrgyzstan, or Tajikistan but that isn’t saying a lot.
 
There are several problems with having a remittance dependant economy but chief among them is there is little evidence to suggest it positively contributes to economic growth and poverty reduction.  The primary benefits of remittances are the people receiving them. It’s not a long-term strategy for sustainable economic prosperity and by allowing third-world immigration we’re just enabling this dependency.

6. Even They Don’t Want To Do The Jobs Canadians Don’t Want To Do.

To say immigrants do the jobs “people X” don’t want to do insults two groups of people; one intentionally the other unintentionally.

The intentional group are the working class schmucks who experience the most adverse of “benefits” mass immigration brings.  It’s meant to shame them into accepting terrible jobs that don’t pay a living wage by a people of better upbringing who are so well connected from birth that if they ever found themselves doing “the jobs Canadians don’t want to do” it would mean they f**ked up so badly in life no one would risk reputation by setting them up with even the most measly do nothing, overpaid, public sector sinecure.

The unintentional group is the immigrants themselves since it presupposes they’re good for little else.
 
But even third world immigrants don’t want to do those jobs.

If you’re going to be poor in life then it’s best to be poor in a developed nation like Canada but being poor here isn’t much fun.  Third world immigrants didn’t come to Canada for the weather, or culture, or cuisine, or anything definitively Canadian really, and they definitely didn’t come to Canada to be poor even by first world standards.  They came to Canada to shop in its malls (Canada, to them, is just a mall and to be a Canadian is to be a shopper) but it’s hard to do so by “doing a job Canadians don’t want to do.”  If the high turnover rate of imported nannies tells us anything it’s just that: third world immigrants don’t want to do the jobs Canadians don’t want to do either.

7. They Contribute To Climate Change.

Canada has one of the highest carbon footprints per capita in the world.  No matter what ranking you look at Canada consistently lists high as one of the most polluting countries in the world on a per capita basis.  This is because Canada is a sparsely populated northern country of mostly inhospitable terrain that experiences the hottest of hot and the coldest of cold weather.  If the government were serious about combating climate change it would look at stabilizing the population, perhaps allow it to decline, but it isn’t.  It wants to increase the population mostly through mass third-world immigration while increasing our cost of living through an ineffective carbon tax; a carbon tax, I should add, whose efficacy would be frustrated by the negating effects immigrant driven population growth would have on any realized carbon reductions.  

How much more of a polluter will Canada be with a population of 100 million?   A carbon tax and mass immigration work at cross purposes.

Most of the immigrants we import come from the third world where they have lower carbon footprints.  China, for example, is a top global polluter but due to its large population the average Chinese national in China has a lower carbon footprint than the average Canadian.  Their carbon footprint more than doubles, triples, quadruples when they come to Canada to reside here permanently.  Canada would be fighting climate change if it discouraged third-world immigration and left those people to remain in the third-world.

Conclusion.

Third-world immigrants need to stay home and fix their s**t and Canada would be wise to deny them residency until they do so.  They’ve proven themselves unfit for immigration because if they couldn’t do anything for themselves in their native countries, and for their native countries, then they’re not going to do anything for us.  They didn’t come to Canada to solve our problems, they came to Canada to have Canada solve theirs.  The third-world is the third-world because of the people of the third-world and by bringing them here you’re inviting what makes the third-world with them.  There is no benefit to be had, not real ones anyway, by Canada in allowing mass sustained third-world immigration and if there are any benefits they’re mostly novel, superficial, or fleeting mostly being eaten up by the immigrants themselves.  Third-worlders need to stay where they are and fix their countries, not come here and colonize mine.  Had they collectively invested the effort and resources they expend immigrating to the West into their native lands instead then perhaps they could affect positive change there and direct their countries to a brighter more prosperous future so that future generations wouldn’t feel compelled to move abroad at all.

Diasporas Don’t Improve Trade Relations So Stop Saying They Do.

One of the selling points of immigration enthusiasts is that Diasporas improve bilateral trade relations but an interesting comment made by Ujjal Dosanjh - a Sikh in Canada who was bloc voted into becoming the first Indo-Canadian premier of a province - warrants some attention.

Commenting on Justin Sandiego’s family vacation to India he had the following to say to the CBC regarding trade relations between India and Canada:

"Trade still doesn't amount to much," he said. "Since the time I was premier, prime ministers and premiers have been going over and yet trade just hasn't grown as much as it could."

The article goes on to note how two-way trade between the two nations is a paltry $8 billion despite Canada hosting 1.4 million Indians which includes their Canadian born decedents or, as the Indian government considers them, Non-resident Indians and persons of Indian origin (NRI-PIOs).

Dosanjh further notes:

"The people-to-people links just haven't translated into strong economic links," said Dosanjh. "You've got grains and pulses, some pulp. But India's needs are mostly met by other markets."

The article then quotes some Indian at Carlton University who does some crystal-ball gazing anticipating the materialization of opportunities just over the horizon but isn’t that always the case regarding the economic benefits of mass immigration: speculation and assumption making with some "it's going to happen just be patient" promises thrown in?

To put this in perspective trade between Canada and the United States totaled $627.8 billion in 2016  making it the second largest trading relationship in the world albeit one where the U.S. enjoys a trade surplus.  Nevertheless trade with the U.S. is central to Canada’s economic success and why Canadians enjoy such a high quality of life.  And there are approximately 327,575 American-Canadians.  If Diaspora’s improve trade relations then why aren’t we importing more Americans?  (Conversely there are approximately a little over 1 million Canadian-Americans; 400,000 less than there are Indians in Canada.  Indeed, there are more Indians in Canada than there are American-Canadians and Canadian-Americans combined).

Even the trade announcement made by Trudeau is lopsided with $750 million dollars going to India and India sending a measly $250 million Canada’s way but that’s typical of Indo-Canadian trade relations with investment being heavily weighted in India's favour.  And half of that $750 million investment is from one company, Toronto based Brookfield Asset Management, that is buying an office complex in Mumbai.

India is a country of 300 million households where 73% live in rural villages.  And of that 73% only 5% earn enough to pay taxes and 35.7% are illiterate.  There’s little to gain by investing in India except as a place to outsource jobs.  As for Indians the only thing they want from us is our citizenship and the ability to immigrate here.  Other than that they’re of little use to us and we’re just giving our country away to them because they can’t seem to make a country worth living in for themselves.

The truth is Diaspora’s don’t improve trade relations and the fact that 1.4 million Indians in Canada only translates into $8 billion worth of trade proves it doesn’t.  You don’t need to host an overseas Diaspora to enjoy a good trading relationship with a country.  If India wants something from Canada it will buy it from us.  We don’t need 1.4 million Indians in the country to entice them to do so and from the looks of things haven't done so.  In fact having 1.4 million Indians in the country, most of which are Sikh, is proving to be a headache for Canada but that’s for another post.

But They Are Shithole Countries And Why Do You Think That Is?

Looks like Trump is taking flack for stating the obvious.  He called shithole countries shithole countries and the grandstanding left is in a huff.

Again.
 
The man can say the sky is blue and his enemies will personally take offense for the other wavelengths of the electromagnetic spectrum for not being acknowledged.  He can’t win.

The question is why are they shithole countries and the compassionate progressive left will tell you colonialism, corporations, blah, blah, blah, white people.  I won’t completely dismiss the lingering effects of colonialism and the wealth sucking power of multinational corporations but sooner or later you have to take responsibility for yourself.  It’s “current year” and the colonialism card has been overplayed.

The reason why shithole countries are shithole countries is because the people who live there make them shithole countries.  The Philippines is a shithole country because Filipinos.  Somalia is a shithole country because Somalis.  Haiti is a shithole country because Haitians.  And so on.

Some countries are literal shitholes.  In India nearly half the population openly defecates in the streets.  The country is practically an open air public toilet.

I used to believe in the equality of man and the culpability of the West in the impoverishment of the developing world.  I used to believe we had some sort of duty to improve the lives of those of the Third World since I lived a relatively comfortable life at their expense.  And supporting mass immigration was part of that.  Then I grew up and wised up by moving to and living in Toronto.  If living in Toronto hasn’t taught you the cold hard reality that the Third World is a shithole because Third-Worlders then you should leave your gentrified white middle class enclave some time and talk to the people you say you love to have in Canada just not exactly living in your neighbourhood.

I’ve worked with these people.  I went to Church with these people.  I went to school with their kids and other than being nice people, most of them anyway, they’re extremely unremarkable and will remove any wonderment to why the shithole country they left is a shithole.  I no longer saw letting them immigrate to Canada as an act of reconciliation but as an act of charity.


And we’re importing them into the country by the hundreds of thousands each year.  Doing so is like willfully infecting yourself with the AIDS virus.

Call me a racist; call me a xenophobe I simply don’t care anymore.  But importing by the millions the “darkies” of the developing world into the white West on the presumption that they will prosper not only themselves but the West as well is just the progressive-left version of the white man’s burden.  We assume that deep down all men are equal and that when in the white West the “darkies” will do as whitey does and become indistinguishable from anyone and everyone skin colour aside.  This is what Peter Brimelow referred to as the “magic soil theory” in an interview with Jared Taylor.  It assumes bringing in hordes of Third Worlders into a Western society will magically change them into something better just because they happen to be in the West.  It’s the same faulty reasoning that believes that the magical incantations of the citizenship oath turns a man or woman into a Canadian on the spot, indistinguishable from a maple syrup bleeding, hockey puck shitting Canuck.  Instinctively we know that’s not true and my lived experience shouts at me that it’s not true.

Ask yourself this: if the people we’re importing en masse from the developing world were unable to prosper themselves and their society in their native countries what do you think they’re going to do for us here?  And if you counter that Canada is specifically targeting the Third World’s most ambitious “best and brightest” then we’re robbing the Third World of its most precious resource condemning it to a state of perpetual poverty and forever a shithole.  As long as the West provides itself as an escape route to the "better life" for the people of the Third World they will feel no compulsion to do anything to change the societies and the countries they live in.  All they have to do is hop on plane and go to the West leaving their fellow countrymen to rot in the shithole of a country they’re leaving behind.  It’s an act of instant gratification where others have done all the hard work and then you suddenly show up to reap the rewards.

Not letting these people come here is an act of moral duty.  It’s tough love.  If they don’t like the country they were born in then they should do something about to make it one worth living in.  They should build their countries by following the West’s example, not immigrate there and colonize it.  They may not realize that better country in their lifetime but future generations will.  I know it’s easy for me to say this but that’s life and I, like hundreds of millions of people, were fortunate enough to be born in a prosperous Western state.  But that prosperity was built over generations and it didn’t come easy but nothing worth having comes easy.   And it’s a prosperity Filipinos, Indians, Syrians, Haitians, Somalis, Sri Lankans, Nigerians and their fellow Third Worlders want through the simple easy act of walking off a plane.  Had they spent the effort and resources they used to immigrate to the West to make their lives better for themselves in their respective shithole countries then perhaps their countries, in time, wouldn’t be shitholes.

We have no obligation, be it moral or economic, to let these people settle here.  We do have an obligation to future generations of Canadians to leave the country in a better shape than the one we were born into.  But mass Third World immigration is making that difficult to achieve.  We may have inherited a stable prosperous country from our parents and our parents’ parents but by allowing mass Third World immigration into Canada we will be bequeathing a shithole country to those who follow.  Canada isn't our country to give away like that.

Diversity Ruins Everything: Star Wars Edition or Star Wars Has Become Privileged White Female Fanfiction.

I saw the new Star Wars movie and it’s an SJW POS.  I was still entertained by it but in a jaw dropping “What the hell are they doing here?” kind of way.  As a movie spectacle it works.  The space battle scenes are engaging but plot wise the movie goes nowhere and it’s burdened by uninteresting characters and a superfluous subplot that extends the run-time beyond patience.  And the rammed-down-your-throat diversity doesn’t help either because diversity is bullshit.

It was clear from the start that diversity would be a guiding principal in the creation of the now Disney owned Star Wars universe.  The writers, directors, and producers were quite clear on this.  In fact the woman running Star Wars into the ground with her ham-fisted direction of it owes her entire career to diversity quotas (and riding the coattails of much more talented and ambitious people like Frank Marshall and Steven Spielberg).

So how’s that diversity thing working out so far for the new Star Wars film?  Box office sales are strong albeit only for the first week of release.  And in the lucrative Chinese market Star Wars: The Last Jedi struggles against a “meh” receptionToy sales are weak which should be alarming because this is what this is all about.  Star Wars was always about selling toys and that’s why Disney bought it.
 
Oh, and the fans hate it!  Now I don’t consider myself a Star Wars fan.  Like many adults my age I grew up on Star Wars collecting the toys and playing the video games but any emotional attachment I had to the movies is long gone.  I grew out of it.  I had no intention of seeing the latest installment of Star Wars because I just don’t care anymore and only went because my ticket was paid for.  But the fans!  They’re the ones buying the toys and seeing the films more than once taking their kids along with them creating a new generation of Star Wars toy buyers.  When you’ve lost them you’ve lost your real market.

Some people claim George Lucas ruined their childhood with the prequels.  He may have ruined it but diversity is killing it.  There’s no reason for any of the characters to be who they are in the film except for diversity.  Rey doesn’t have to be a female but she is because vagina.  The Storm Trooper with a conscience, Finn, doesn’t have to be black but he is because black which is odd since the First Order is obviously an imagination of a white supremacy movement.  And the Rose character in Star Wars: The Last Jedi doesn’t have to be Asian but she is because Asian.  In fact she doesn’t have to be in the film at all and I hazard to guess the meandering subplot was written just to stick her in the story somewhere.

The original Star Wars trilogy worked because it was a simple tale of good vs. evil with a small cast of characters that allowed the films to tease out their personalities so the audience can care about them and their struggle.  Back then the politics of diversity wasn’t an issue allowing the film’s creators to concentrate on telling a story.  Now the films are distracted by diversity where every check-box of identities needs to be represented creating a cast of characters the audience is given no time to get to know or give a damn about.
 
And the infusion of SJW ideology makes it worse.  The feminist propaganda in the movies is so blatant it’s obvious they’re not even trying to hide it.  In all the Disney Star Wars movies released thus far it’s a white woman (not a black woman or an Asian woman but a white one) leading a rag tag group of diverse freedom fighters against a powerful galactic force of evil guided by white men because white women will lead the world to peace and harmony against the true destabilizing global force of toxic white male patriarchy.  Yes, the leaders of the evil First Order and Empire are white males.  

In fact there are no positive male characters in the new Star Wars movies at least not white ones.  Kylo Ren is an emotionally unstable manchild with mommy and daddy issues.  In The Last Jedi Luke is a brooding MGTOW, Poe Dameron is a reckless Alpha Male who is cut down to size and put in his place like a misbehaving child by women, and Finn is essentially the Jar Jar Binks of the new trilogy.  There's even a minor character in the new film played by Benicio del Toro, a male, who turns out to be a two-faced huckster.  It’s Kathleen Kennedy's feminist Star Wars fan fiction on the big screen, with the essential Mary Sue lead, where women are empowered by attacking the male identity (kind of like in real life).  All three of the films are white female empowerment fantasies where white women occupy positions of leadership, undoubtedly through merit and not quotas, helping lost and hopeless men find themselves while shepherding the galaxy into a multi-cultural, multi-racial Utopia which is why these films belong in the realm of science-fantasy.  In the real world white women in leadership positions, often put there through quotas and not merit, have proven to be instrumental in the decline of companies and countries, destabilizing Western nations through social re-engineering schemes and the cheerleading of mass immigration.

Diversity is mediocrity and Star Wars is just one cultural proof of it.  It’s not just me saying it.  It’s the poor fan reception and the lackluster toy sales.  Star Wars has enjoyed box office success not because they’re good movies but because it’s Star WarsStar Wars: The Force Awakens is a competent movie but an uninspiring one, retelling A New Hope and doesn’t reward successive viewings.  Rogue One: A Star Wars Tale is an unnecessary and messy addition to the Star Wars canon.   Star Wars: The Last Jedi is too long being weighed down by SJW activism, feminism, and the diversity agenda.  These films have failed to capture the magic of the original trilogy.  They look like Star Wars but don’t feel like it.  Perhaps the original Star Wars trilogy was just lightning in a bottle but I can return to those movies and watch them again with the same amount of enjoyment I had when I saw them the first time.  And I repeat I don’t consider myself a fan having abandoned any emotional attachment to the films long ago.  The new films feel like product created by a committee guided by the reigning progressive agenda of the Hollywood elite to pander to as many people as possible.  The original trilogy encapsulated universal themes of good vs. evil, hope, destiny, fate, and family and you don’t need diversity to express any of that.  It seems diversity just gets in the way and f**ks it up.

If Immigrants Prosper Canada Then Why Is Peel Region So Damn Poor?

So Trudeau appointed a Somali refugee/immigration lawyer/criminal lawyer as Minister for Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship because conflict of interest is apparently not a thing with this government.  (And that Ahmed Hussen is a Somali who specializes in immigration and criminal law shows the man knows his community very well).  In the latest announcement by this government that inspires even less confidence in it, if there was any left to give, we learned of its plan to flood the country with 1 million immigrants in three years because importing millions of immigrants from the dysfunctional third world will somehow, fingers-crossed make Canada prosperous and competitive.  It hasn't worked out that way yet but I guess the strategy is if we make the pile of third world immigrants high enough it will magically birth economic prosperity from within.  Anyhow, the usual excuses were paraded to an increasingly immigrant weary Canadian populace being told that “immigrants are key to Canada’s prosperity.”  If that’s true then why is Peel Region so damn poor?

Peel Region is one of three Regional Municipalities bordering Toronto and, along with Halton Region, makes up what is called the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).  Peel encompasses the cities of Mississauga, Brampton, and Caledon having a collective population of approximately 1.4 million of whom over half of those are non-whites and recent immigrants arriving mostly from the Middle East and Asia.  And 47% of Peel Region’s residents are considered poor with 4% considered extremely poor.

It wasn’t always like this.  Back in the bad old days of 1980 when Peel, indeed Toronto and the whole of the GTA, was mostly white and stable and therefore awful places to live and raise a family only 2% of Peel residents were considered low-income.  It was also a time when Canada wasn’t burdened with out of control immigration.  All it took was 35 years of massive third world immigration to f**k that up didn’t it?  Thank you immigration industry!  You really know what’s best for this country.

It’s not like they didn’t see it coming.  Poverty was increasing in Peel in tandem with immigrant driven population growth yet those in power did nothing.  Even Mississauga’s celebrated Hazel McCallion did nothing as she presided over the increasing impoverishment of her city.  They chose to distract themselves and the public with bromides to diversity and ethnic festivals.  Meanwhile none of the economic prosperity immigration allegedly brings to a society came to fruition.  What happened was predictable and could have been avoided if anyone was brave enough to tell it like it is: too many immigrants, not enough jobs.  And not just any jobs but ones that pay a livable income.

Peel Region became reliant on housing to drive the economy foolishly believing a growing population brings prosperity.  But apparently that’s not true.  Building houses and filling them with people isn’t a good model for an economy with a long-term outlook.  It’s a lesson Peel learned the hard way and it’s a problem they allowed to happen and now have to deal with.

Their solutions are laughably naïve.  They think easier access to services for the poor will alleviate their poverty woes but no it won’t.  This is the solution the usual parasites in the social service sector give because it means sustained funding and employment for them but not so much for their clients.  It’s also the career friendly answer for a hack urban politician dependent on immigrant votes to keep her pathetic political career alive.  What are needed are good paying jobs but there aren’t many of those going around are there?  And it’s apparent immigrants don’t create them either.

Peel Region is a case example contesting the erroneous proclamation that “immigration is key to Canada’s prosperity.”  Peel hasn’t benefited from Canada’s reckless immigration system in the least.  It’s become a victim of it and a canary in the coal mine for the rest of the country.  If we don’t get immigration under control, if we don’t lower the numbers, if we don’t become more selective in who we let in then we can see the face of New Canada already in Peel and frankly it’s a very, very ugly and a very, very poor one.
