On March 12, the day before Parliament was suspended because of the pandemic, the Trudeau government announced its plan to accept one million immigrants in the next three years.
Since then, millions of Canadians have lost their job or been forced to work fewer hours.
The situation has completely changed.
It may take years for the unemployment rate to come down to more normal levels.
Does it make sense to continue to welcome 350 thousand immigrants every year when millions of Canadians are out of a job?
Of course not!
We should give priority to Canadian workers looking for a job.
For the moment, Canada’s borders are closed to most non-residents and there is in effect an immigration moratorium.
This moratorium should continue after the borders are reopened, until unemployment has gone down.
And then, we should have a real debate about having a sustainable level of immigration, instead of the mass immigration that the Liberals are planning.
Frederick, if you agree that we should have a moratorium on immigration, sign our petition.
And if you can afford if in these difficult times, please pitch in $2 to help us fight for the rights of unemployed Canadians.
