  1. Oh man. We've been over this before. You keep regurgitating the same selective half truths and your bizarre way of looking at who comes into our country. If a family immigrates to Canada through the most common way, under a skilled worker program, the main applicant will be assessed to meet a minimum requirement, which allows him/her to compete in a pool with others. At the moment, there are 150,000 people in this pool (and growing) and once a month, between 7-9,000 people are selected to apply for permanent residency. This means that 95% of the people who are in this pool are not selecte
  2. You're reaching and you're being dramatic. You're also not able to stay on the topic you responded to originally. You have now gone on a tangent, and are outraged at "the sudden surge in crime, because Canada let in Syrian refugees." The problem is that these feelings you have are detached from reality. These feeling are most likely due to the fear of the unknown, which stems from being disconnected from the other people. I don't know why, but it could be because of your location and your lack of access to and communication with people from different cultures and background. You're a
  3. Our immigration system, for the most part, tries to sell itself as merritt based. Our most common program, under Express Entry is based on a point system. It depends on your language level, age, education and work experience. Nothing to do with your location. When it comes to temporary residency (study/visit/work), which can help you to become a permanent resident/citizen, is different. The Irish, for example, do not need to apply to get a visitor visa. They are visa exempt, as are most European countries. The Irish, and many other European countries also have an option that maj
  4. That was a short term decision after the refugee crisis. That has nothing to do with our immigration system and what Argus is alleging in regards to our immigration system favouring Muslim countries.
  5. Share where in our immigration system, there is any favour towards people who are applying from Muslim countries. I work in the immigration and you are spreading misinformation again.
  6. Really now. What if investing money to a specific group ends up giving a return? This is why they make these investments. It is to receive a positive return.
  7. Intergenerational trauma is usually seen within one family in which the parents or grandparents were traumatized, and each generation of that family continues to experience trauma in some form. In these cases the source can usually be traced back to a devastating event, and the trauma is unique to that family. What makes the intergenerational trauma in the case of First Nations people different is that it wasn't the result of a targeted event against an individual – it was a set of government policies that targeted and affected a whole generation. Children were traumatized when they were
  8. Did you (or do you) speak out when the former Conservative government was giving out billions in incentives to oil companies?
  9. Wrong. As statistics show, a white girl is born with a head start in life compared to a black girl or a First Nations girl.
  10. If your friend was black (ha-ha! imagine that), and he had a daughter going through the same thing, she would receive the same treatment as the white girl. Your argument has holes. Here is a video that describes privilege: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4K5fbQ1-zps
  11. You refuse to look at any other media and solely rely on facebook memes for your information. This is wrong in my opinion and it makes me question your credibility. It is a reactionary action by the government, to respond to the emotional outrage many people are feeling. I'm not a fan of decisions made based on emotions. That said, I do believe that the black community, like many other groups, need support and a boost. I believe that if done correctly, it's a good investment. Whether it should be the federal government to make these decisions, that's another debate. Here is the br
  12. I understand there are reserves without clean drinking water wondering why the government is not providing that infrastructure and service. How dare they? They're racist against whites.
  13. I recommend following up the information you got from facebook to see if it's true. Facebook memes don't have much credibility.
  14. You're getting distracted. Your original comment was that the whites will experience what the first nations did because of immigration. I argued against that. Now you're talking about "what if..." and "this would have happened.." and "white racial genocide". All anecdotal and assumptions, based on no proof or real information. We have laws that are the basis for a well-functioning society. Immigration didn't just happen. It has been ongoing since Canada was formed. There are always different waves of immigration from before you and I were born. And guess what: Canada continues to ev
  15. What do you mean by "And like the Indians of today the white people will soon become a minority just like them and we white people will also find ourselves in Indian minority shoes."? I have a hard time accepting your comparison between the white settlers and the first nations. What the European settlers did to the First Nations is something that will not be repeated in this day and age. Laws are different. Culturally and morally: So much of what was done in the past is unacceptable today. Like residential schools and forcing people to forget their language, customs and culture. Migr
