  1. This is an economic fundamental please educate yourself.Interest rates increases during good economic times and hit rock bottom during bad economic times. The reason, they want to fight inflation and housing explosion. When growth in the economy is too fast both accelerate and the tool to fight back and get economy back to normal engine is to raise interest rates. This is what happened past 2 year sin Canada.
  2. What a load of nonsense. Unemployment rate is down because of what happened more than 4 years ago!!!!!. over 400,000 jobs created past twelve months that is because of what happened in 2014!!!!!!! GDP of 3.7% is not booming!!!!!. Lowest unemployment in decades is not positive? I did say that interest rates was artificially raise to avoid housing explosion!!!
  3. Low inflation, lowest unemployment rate, low interest rates, rapidly growing economy overall, housing sector was too rapidly expanding but purposely slowed down to avoid explosion. I am quoting your own quote on growth only: Expressed at an annualized rate, real GDP expanded 3.7 percent in the second quarter, faster than a 0.5 percent growth in the first three months of the year and beating market forecasts of 3 percent. On jobs: Canada has added 426,400 jobs over the past 12 months, the largest one-year increase since 2007
  4. Canada"s job surge for the most recent month https://globalnews.ca/news/5864444/canada-jobs-report-august-2019/
  5. Typical Conservative campaign style of negativity and attacks rather than issues vital to Canadians like the booming economy under Liberals. And they soon forget all Harper era collection of scandals!!!!!.
  6. Indeed he is a coward and a liar. All talk and no action. Full f hot air and bluffs but no action. He has the most powerful military and use it in a positive way to make the world more secure and better for everyone but he is too coward to use it.
  7. Trump sacked Bolton. Trump is a coward and hypocrite. He is all talk and no action.
  8. Justin Trudeau will win another majority this October. The economy is doing great. There has been many sunny days in Canada past four years, the nation still remember the nightmare when Harper ruled for years and he has proven that in spite of young age he is a great politician, leader and campaigner. Harper underestimated him 4 years ago and he paid a heavy price.
  9. Exception not a rule. Besides this situation when arises only applies to middle eastern immigrants which is less than a third of total immigrants and to some not all. As I had said it many times Canada's immigration policies should change in favor of adaptability to Canadian values. If it does those type of immigrants will have a hard time qualifying. Do they have schools of their own? Universities of their own?
  10. That is not likely to happen because the children of all those foreign born will be born in Canada and effectively adapting the homegrown culture. The 3 million foreign born arrivals every decade (and ten times that are Canadian born as we speak now) will never hence put them in a majority position. Statistically very unlikely if not impossible.
  11. You problem is with foreign born in general or those immigrants who are or may be a burden on Canadian economy or a danger to Canadian culture and values? Lets clarify exactly what you stand for.
  12. Canada is a western democracy where people are treated equally before the law regardless of race , religion, gender, orientation and wealth. Where women are respected and enjoy equal rights where minorities are treated well.Where there is a freedom of choice on what to wear and what t drink and what to believe. We are trying to protect these values. Bring over people of the culture who by teaching do not believe in equality of women or respect for women or try to imposed their backward values upon people born here is endangering those values. The two people who did those deplorable acts are the ones who are a danger to Canadian values more so than the worse of immigrants. This is not what Canada stands for. Just like every democracy freedom of speech has its limits. As long as it doesn't harm any other citizen. They crossed that line and deserve punishment though I think facing criminal charges for first offense or losing their job is too much since they did not cause any bodily harm..
  13. The two main parties still neck to neck however, liberals are in slightly better position with a better chance to win even a majority than conservatives. https://newsinteractives.cbc.ca/elections/poll-tracker/canada/ Still 6 weeks to election day a lot could happen.
  14. I agree. But state the facts as they are to advance your side of debate. Don't manipulate facts and figures. Facts: There are some immigrants who are a burden on our social programs not all. There is a long term net economic benefit from immigration not loss. Canadians are more prosperous now compare to the past likely due to immigration resulting in faster economic growth and GDP per capita. There are some immigrant who turn to crimes but not all and some Canadian born who also turn to crimes though percentage wise it is likely higher among immigrants (again selectivity) plays a major role). Our health and education and other social programs are overcrowded so that those born and pay taxes all their lives cannot receive the quality care when they need so we need to cut back on immigration but not stop it. There is a danger of cultural conflict as we have open the doors to those who differ in their beliefs as we stand n equality and respect for women and western style democracy so again we must become more selective and make adaptability the main criterion and cut back on immigration levels to minimize tge potential for future conflict.
  15. Those people are among those born here too and not limited to some immigrants. Percentage wise it is likely higher among new immigrants because they need time to adjust, learn the language for some and acquired skills to make it in the new land. But yes as I have said again and again we have to be more selective not totally ban immigration. I see hard working immigrants in my every day life who are also tax payers so painting all immigrant with the same brush saying that they don't pay taxes and demand government to raise yours is a BIG LIE.
