Transforming immigration

  1. The beauty of Canada and its freedom of religion used to be that a racist little dickhead like Kenney couldn’t tell a muslim woman what her religion had to mean or how to practice it. 

    • wiki ~ Psychological projection or projection bias is a psychological defense mechanism where a person subconsciously denies his or her own attributes, thoughts, and emotions, which are then ascribed to the outside world, usually to other people. Thus, projection involves imagining or projecting the belief that others originate those feelings

      •  you know nothing.

      • You’re projecting.

  2. Kenney wants white christian skilled labour to work in Alberta….he’s not much interested in anyone else.

    Another Con stuck in the Cold War era, and the oil patch.

      •  Tony find something else to do on here rather than tossing in random quotes

    • I wonder where he thinks he’s going to get them from?

      •  I dunno.  He mentioned Ozzies and Kiwis and Irish on the tape….but they’ll be temporary and likely to return home.

        After WWII, and during the Cold War we were getting lots of Europeans and East Europeans as permanent residents because of the mess their homelands were in….but they have no need to come here anymore.

    • I suspect he’ll take any labour .. as long as it’s cheap .. and er, flexible.

      •  Well, they won’t be ‘skilled’ then.

  3. Strategy for economic growth – all immigration comes from Asia and nowhere else – and we only allow Buddhists, Confucians, and Hindus who have successfully operated a small business for a few years.  Our economy would be transformed rapidly with lots of keen entrepreneurs and their children would be forced to be bookish nerds in school and become doctors and accountants.

    • You would do well to stop talking.

      • Arthur: Shut up! Will you shut up?!
        Dennis: Ah, now we see the violence inherent in the system!
        Arthur: Shut up!
        Dennis: Oh! Come and see the violence inherent in the system! Help, help, I’m being repressed!
        Arthur: Bloody Peasant!
        Dennis: Ooh, what a giveaway!

  4. If he wants to clear the backlog, then he should declare an amnesty.

    If he wants people’s qualifications to be cleared, he needs to take over licensing from the provinces, and the profession’s protectionism

    And if he wants everyone to have a job before they come here….then we don’t need an immigration minister.
