  1. You are wrong. Any Canadian entity who hires a foreign worker, must pay the employee, at minimum, the median average salary for that position. They must also show that they've gone through a recruitment process to find Canadian PR/Citizens, before they can hire a foreign worker. Stop listening to anyone and look at the rules and regulations. Just because there are job openings and unemployed Canadians, they can be a match. If a Canadian sees that a job is open, its their responsibility to apply for the job and/or become qualified to do the job. There are many provincial and fede
  2. So much misinformation and so many uneducated comments. I mean, I can go through every point and show you are wrong, but I just don't care to repeat to you any more. At least not today. For today, I will respond to one of your misinformation: Of course, the assessment is based entirely on paperwork supplied by the immigrants, and the assessing officer has all of THREE MINUTES to go through the file to determine if they qualify. Not much opportunity to verify if that 'degree' is real or a fake, or if the paper attesting to their language skills is real either. Stop typing like t
  3. Canadian employers are more than willing to take a Canadian who is qualified over a foreign national who is not. How many of these 2 million unemployed are qualified or are willing to be qualified to be a programmer? How many are qualified to be a doctor? How many are qualified to be an engineer? How many graphics artist? Etc. Etc. It's not just about dying vs birth. Think about it. It's about how many are retiring and how many people we have in the workforce. Death is just a part of not being able to be in the workforce. The increasing number of people who are retired and not enough p
  4. There is a 20 years undertaking period. First, if you want to sponsor your parents/grandparents, you must show that you are making enough income to sponsor them. If your parents and your parents go on welfare, the government has every right to go after you just like the CRA goes after people. More info. From what I have seen from our clients, many of these sponsored parents that come into Canada end up supporting their children by taking care of their grandchildren. This allows the mothers, who are usually the caretakers, go to work to make money and pay more taxes. I refuse to
  5. Perhaps Argus will quote you as a response to the statistics I have shared about our immigration numbers.
  6. Self-serving racists and bigots do what they can to scapegoat the immigrants. Including finding fake news in the opinion section of The Sun. I give recent numbers and stats and share information. You give out-dated numbers, The Sun opinion pieces and and funny looking calculations.
  7. The baby boomers are retiring and not enough people are taking their place in the workforce. This means that we're not going to have enough workers and tax payers. Families are not having enough children. This is happening in almost all Western countries.
  8. Potentially, even though each individual must pass a medical test before coming into Canada. So if they have any pre-existing conditions that will cost a lot, then they could become medically inadmissible. I don't think 20K is a lot of people. It's a drop in the bucket. Especially when you take into consideration that majority of the 300K who are coming to Canada are young, educated, skilled and will bring a lot of productivity into Canada.
  9. The number of refugees are also very low, compared to the skilled workers coming in. I don't have the stats, but based on our firm's experience, the number of elderly refugees coming in, as compared to families with young kids, is much lower. Seniors have no other way besides parents sponsorship and refugee to gain permanent residency. The only people who can sponsor the elderly are children or grandchildren and those are capped at 20K a year. If you want to learn more about the numbers, go here. If you have any questions about immigration, I'd be happy to answer them.
  10. Holy crap! 10% of the parliament?! Hopefully that's not a reflection of the numbers in general.
  11. What a shit show in Iran. I can't believe how much they've gone through in just the past year. The corruption and incompetence of the Iranian government is what will end them. Not the sanctions and economic pressure. Perhaps this virus will bring the majority to the boiling point.
  12. Good on you in doing this Hussain! It is important to get younger people involved. To me, the top 5 issues are: The Environment, which ties into: Use of our natural resources Nurturing our other industries Monopoly of industries (telecom / insurance / health / etc) The aging population
  13. Unfortunately I see a lot of fake news coming out of you and I let most of it slide. But as someone who works in the private immigration field, I feel that I need to step in and correct you on this one. We actually have a very ageist immigration system. Majority of our immigrants are skilled workers and all skilled workers go through a competitive points system. One loses points if they are above 29 years old. The number of people coming in through parents sponsorships per year is 20,000. A small percentage of our immigrants and compared to most other Western countries, it's a very low nu
  14. An overwhelming majority of people infected end up surviving. Around 2% die and they are mostly the elderly and the weak. Just to give a perspective, at its peak, 50% of those who got Ebola died. The biggest problem with the coronavirus is that it's one of the most contagious and it spreads quickly. We're far away from hitting the peak. It's just getting started. Here is a comparison between coronavirus and others. Eat healthy, live healthy and stay safe.
  15. UK, Germany and 162 other countries also voted with Canada. You are such a hack.
  16. How about the USS Liberty incident? 'But Sir, It’s an American Ship.' 'Never Mind, Hit Her!' When Israel Attacked USS Liberty 'The Americans have findings that show our pilots were aware the ship was American,' a newly published document by the State Archives says Ofer Aderet
  17. I am a fortunate person to be where I am in the world. I am happy that I have this platform for myself and my children. But I'm not going to blind myself to the b.s. we put others through in other parts of the world. Life is about progressing and improving as individuals and as a society. We need to continue to better ourselves and challenge those who want to milk the status quo that harms others in order to benefit themselves selfishly. Reading a book doesn't have to cost money. Talking to someone who isn't in your circle doesn't have to cost money. As a military man, do you not
  18. I have a theory as to why Trump decided to take out Soleimani: John Bolton will most likely testify in the hearings. He was pushed out and left on bad terms. John Bolton, a neo-con, has been pushing for 'regime change' in the middle-east for over 2 decades. Apparently, he was too much of a hawk for Trump and that's why he was pushed out. Perhaps, killing Soleimani was a way to quench Bolton's thirst for military force, in order to, perhaps, stop him from giving damaging testimony in the impeachment hearings.
  19. Heh. You don't speak for all Canadians. Every Canadian has a voice and choice. You are free to be a good little peon who is told what to do and to give unconditional support for whatever his masters tells him to. That is your choice. However, you cannot tell me what to do. Feel free to pack up your shit and move, if you don't like that. I'm fine where I am. Instead of using your money to buy tickets, why don't you spend that money in getting some education and understanding of world politics, other cultures and international law. "This mad man". Sure. You need a bogeyman and a tea
  20. I have problems with it. U.S. has military bases all around Iran and flies a drone into Iranian airspace and nothing. The drone gets shot down by the Iranians and OMG OMG! Saudi Arabia has done numerous terrorist attacks inside Iran and nothing from you. An Iranian backed group attacks the Saudi oil field and OMG OMG! The U.S. is in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Gulf States and nothing from you. Iran has groups in other countries, where they are mostly welcomed by the governments and OMG OMG! Your empty and superficial outrage is amusing.
  21. There is a difference between giving and giving back. The reality is that this money was already Iran's money.
  22. OMG! HOSTAGE TAKING SO SO BAD! That's a good boy. They tell you to be up in arms about a hostage taking from 40 years ago where no one was skilled, while totally ignoring the hundreds of thousands of people who have been killed, maimed and forced into living in misery because of U.S. actions. Things like shooting down a passenger airplane. Or directly assisting Saddam to attack Iran and working with him to hit the Iranians with WMD. Your ignorant outrage is comedic.
  23. In order for Will Ricciardella, et al to continue to share their consent of America's actions, all stories start with "Iran/Iraq/etc. did this and then U.S. did this..."
  24. Maybe that's the point. A president at war has a better chance of a re-election.
