Well, in your house of course.

Lots of Germans got kicked out of subsidized housing to make room.



Wir schaffen das !

Just remind yourself how well that has worked out.



Typical nonsense.

Oh they will apply for asylum.
Oh they can come as regular immigrant.
Oh they can come as lower skilled workers.

Uh, can we pick one ?

Or just open the gates even wider as usual.

You sound like my Dad in the draft dodger days. Raised in a culture as close to Canadians as you could get, english speakers, completed their education and healthy.
And you're complaining....

Well forgive me for wondering where we are going to put 700,000 people (in addition to the 350,000 we normally let in).

Not an issue. Given how much the Little Prince likes the military and veterans all he and his cronies have to do is disband the military, give all their housing, equipment and annual budget to the newcomers. Problem solved. [cheer]

(sarcasm off)

Shit, I'd better stop posting ideas like this because it might just get back to our culturally appropriating PM and since he's never had an original thought in his life other than the ones Gerald Butts gives him means he might just take mine and run with it. ROTFL

Seriously, were we to admit all 700,000 DREAMers in addition to the usual 350,000 immigrants, that's 1,050,000 people. Seriously, every major Canadian City is facing some sort of a housing shortage, and we're going to allow potentially 1m people into Canada at once?

Probably a worst case, but it still begs the question, how do we accommodate the influx of people with out pricing everyone out of the market? How do we ensure our services that ensure our standard of living don't collapse?

Its all well and good to want to help your fellow man, but only if we are able to...

I have wondered that too. The places that have housing don’t have a lot of jobs open. Of the jobs they are trade specific or minimum wage. It’s also doubtful that small communities would have the resources and language base for esl or other programs.

99% of this country is sweet fuck all but trees. The simple clause that you must spend 3 years in the boonies before citizenship is considered seems too simple to implement.
I stated 15 years or so back that if all 50,000 refugees from the Kosovo thing went to the old mining town of Manson Creek with a goat under one arm and a tool belt, Manson Creek would be bigger and more prosperous than Prince George by 2020.
You blame immigrants for jamming up the cities, yet you all convince yourself daily that ONLY the big cities exist and Canada has finished building itself.

I grew up in a small (600 people) village, west of Kitchener. I'd rather small communities absorb some of these people. It would greatly benefit rural Canada.

Did you read the article?

The note prepared for Trudeau said many would qualify for federal and provincial immigration programs, not that they all automatically can just cross the border.

Filing for immigration is a long process that can take years, so if Canada did take some of the Dreamers, it would be in dribs and drabs as part of existing programs, not in addition to the 300,000 or so we allow in each year.

I understand that, Still either way, we're going to inject another 700,000 into our already overburdened immigration system, that's already lagging under the weight of dealing with legal applications and irregular applications. If the Dreamers get the boot, you can bet it'll all be at once. The States won't do whats convenient for us, they'll do whats convenient for them.

They aren't US citizens, so they'd probably have to apply for immigration to Canada from their country of origin anyhow.

It would be wise to prepare. Either way.

Come one guys, these are Americans that just aren't in US legal terms. We should prepare now and actually welcome them, preferred immigration status. Exactly what you anti-immigrant types seem to want.
