Life is Belief & Struggle - Ahmed Shawqi

I feel like I woke up on the planet Mars.

A senior Toronto Star journalist actually wrote a column demanding an immigration freeze.  

I had to read it three times, and then,  pinch myself.  

For a long time, I have been looking for a compelling case for continuing to accept immigrants into this country, but with all the new realities brought on by globalization, outsourcing and high unemployment; the old boiler-plate positive gains immigrants traditionally brought to this country are no longer offset but the cost of their assimilation. Canada now is a very diverse place, and quite frankly, we need to tend and nurture our own garden. 

And if we don’t, we are in real danger of ending with with Swedish Nights.
