My Thoughts On Immigration

This week's questions is: How important are the issues of race/ethnicity towards building a stable country/government? And what are your views on immigrants & immigration laws?

Firstly I am a proud Canadian, and Canada itself is proudly multicultural. I was raised to value, and embrace all cultures, and ethnicity. In fact my own extended family is a cultural mosaic spanning every continent on this globe. Pretty cool eh! B)

My answer to this question may anger the "haters," but you know what, if you are a "hater" I hate you back for your bigotry, and intolerance.

Canada was built by immigrants, and will continue to thrive because of them. My own parents were immigrants, my father was born in Hungary, and my mother was born in Ukraine. In fact if you are living in North America, and you cannot claim a North American Aboriginal ancestry guess what....you came from immigrants too! ;)

As far as immigration law goes in Canada there are some horror stories of people waiting years or being turned away on the flimsiest of reasons. I would like to see the process more streamlined, and those with certain skill sets the ability to get back into their chosen professions much quicker. My daughter has a friend whose father was a dental surgeon in Albania he is currently stocking shelves in Wal-Mart.

Three cheers for immigration, and immigrants!! Without them there would be no Canada!

You definitely make a valid point there with 99.99% of northern America being made up of nothing more but immigrants anyways, heck you can probably even say the same about the total of America anyways since I don't think there's much of the original people still living in southern America either.

It's a shame how easily people tend to forget that though the moment some form of benefit at the time can suddenly be gotten from it.

Well said. Immigration enrichens culture. I know myself that the UK would have been a lot poorer a place without we immigrants!
