On Immigration

Since when did "selective" become a pejorative word...choice

"The biggest change in SAT test scores by ethnic group over the last 20 years has been the steady improvements in test scores by Asians..."
Are we looking to build a nation or a social welfare haven?

As the bottom falls out of the manufacturing sector and less people are required to bolt bumpers onto cars... should we not be looking at prioritising immigrants with technical aptitude and high tech skills?

RELATED: A good first step...
The language bolsters the often-ignored language in the current N-400 citizenship application document, which asks applicants if they have “EVER advocated (either directly or indirectly) the overthrow of any government by force or violence?
People forget that the first job of government is to protect their citizens from violence.

Neo - what about improving our schools so that our own children are giving the proper teaching to acquire those skills? Granted, not everyone has the aptitude, but the current system is failing too many because the basic skills are not taught (think the current arithmetic curriculum, which has the students "explore" for the answer, not just memorize the times table).

well, frances... in our area the schools are being shuttered and consolidated... presumably because the ontario liberals 8 billion dollar green spendfest is bankrupting ontario.

meanwhile islamic madrassas operate totally outside of public purview, with allah only knows what implications down the road.

i'm not optimistic.

I think you answered your own question Neo. Even an assembly line worker must be literate and semi skilled - most of these migrants have never owned a car let alone made one.

importing folk from a stone age culture who define themselves through a violent medieval theocracy, a people who have never had a formal education or exposure to health care is a recipe for disaster.

just my two shekels.

If we had the same sort of screening here, I am just wondering....if anyone espoused overthrowing the Ontario Government by force and /or violence, would that then result in an immediate ouster or instant citizenship with a guaranteed Order of Canada to boot?

That SAT gains chart is the mathematical representation of the phenomena we witnessed on that viral video where some snowflakes are having one of their noisy neurotic group encounter therapy sessions (AKA pointless protest) and an outraged Asian kid tells them to move on that this is a library - he was totally infuriated his valuable learning time was interrupted so pointlessly - And that's the rub - priorities - You can waste your time on vacuous false social justice tantrums and end up as a state welfare case or you can get the skill needed to fulfill your vision of creating the future. PC indoctrinating has mentally disabled generations of western students - Asian students have stronger cultural values and personal discipline to fall prey to Marxist mind control memes.

They should ask the" liberal lefties", that are US citizens, the same question since Trump became President,
The might be surprised with the answers.....maybe we could lock a few up...

how many of justin's 25,000 syrian refugees will actually get off the dole and contribute to canadian society? it's not like there's a nationwide shortage of non-english speaking taxicab drivers.
