Certainly not the "melting pot"...

...the "social justice warriors" are always going on about...

Already, insurance rates in Brampton are the highest in the GTA. I discovered this when I moved to the city and had to buy car insurance. An insurance agent told me this was because of the high rates of crashes and fraudulent claims in Brampton.
Hmmm... that's quite a striking statement. Will the Globe & Mail be checking their "white privilege" anytime soon?

RELATED: The proverbial pot boileth over
Two-thirds of voters in the Ahuntsic-Cartierville borough have voted against recognizing the Ahuntsic Cultural Centre as an official place of worship in a referendum Sunday.

"The outcome was negative for us and simply we're not going to accept it," said the centre's spokesman Rachid Hajir. "Whatever is behind this is purely and simply Islamophobia."
I don't get it. If you truly believe your new countrymen & neighbours despise you... why on Gawd's, er... Allah's green earth would you choose to just sit there and put your spouses & children at risk?

Do the smart thing and get back to on that big silver bird to the comforting motherly embrace of Iran, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Gaza...

I got the same response when I renewed a few years ago. The insurance company asked if I drove through or to Brampton and if I did my insurance would be about $1000 higher.

old white guy says..........Brampton sure has changed. I bought my first house in Brampton when it was a lovely little town of fewer than 20 thousand people. things sure have changed. big Bill Davis was a resident and our member of the provincial government as well as premier. change is not always good, ain't multiculturalism grand.

paramedic friend of mine toronto was called to a number of obviously staged accidents in the "northwest" end of toronto. he alerted police to the fact that the people involved were faking injuries and there was a big investigation.

if some of these folk put as much energy into legitimate pursuits as these scams... they'd be very successful immigrants indeed.

A very interesting article, that one. Especially the reference to insurance fraud, which has also been a serious issue here in BC. What exactly is it about their culture that encourages this? Is it the widespread political and police fraud and corruption in their home country that just gets transferred here? They're even advertising against insurance fraud on TV now, something that has never happened before...

not relevant. if they violate the law of the land, they should be prosecuted. too much bullshit about cultural relativity poisons the very fabric of our society.

Of course they should, and they are...I just wonder about the roots of it all. I'm just not quite comfortable assuming that all East Indians are potential fraudsters even though all my experience so far indicates that this is the truth.

hmmm... you're the one using the word 'all'.

perhaps "comfort levels" trumping statistical evidence is part of the problem. the local insurance brokers don't seem to have that same mindset... probably because it comes directly out of their pockets.

unless you think insurance guys are 'all' racists and they're making stuff up to boost profits.
