What is the content of this essay?This essay deals with the immigration in canada and whether or not it was a postive/negative influence in the formation of this country.Canada being a relatively new country, as far as the history of theworld goes was built by immigration. Every single resident of North America cantrace his ancestry back to the cradle of life in Europe. Even Native Americansfound their way to the new world over a frozen ice pack, spreading out acrossthe land, weaving a rich culture and prospering. The Canada that we know todaybegan only in the last 200 years. Settlers poured in from all over the world,tempted with free land and religious liberty Europeans settled in Can ...view middle of the document...

We would beswamped! But that is precisely what Canada has done. There is no end in sight.With a growing world population more and more people will see Canada as thepremier place to live and will come flocking to our gates.Many Canadian's do not agree with the current immigration policy our theidea that we should let even more immigrants in. Many issues need to bedebated and settled such as should we allow further immigration into Canada, towhat degree should immigrants segregate or integrate, who should be allowed toimmigrate, and on what conditions. These are very serious questions and theanswers to them will have a profound effect on life in Canada and indeed allover the world.Until the great depression at the beginning of the century Canada hadencouraged immigration from Europe, especially Britain. During the GreatDepression Immigration was brought to a halt, the reason being that foreignworkers coming to Canada looking for jobs were unwanted. Bands of men roamedthe country searching for any kind of work. After W.W.II Canada's economy grewso fast that thousands of immigrants were let in, mostly from Europe. The timein-between Canada shut it's gate to when it reopened them is called the firstgreat digestion period.A period with no immigrants allowed Canada to set up social programs,make jobs, and integrate the existing new citizens into our economy. SinceW.W.II the basic immigration policy has remained the same with no such period,we have steadily let larger numbers of foreigners into our country. In the past60 years there has been no such period and the population has outgrown the jobbase. One of the main arguments that immigration enthusiasts use is thatImmigrants will fill jobs and produce more then they consume. At this momentCanada has upwards of eleven percent unemployment. What use do we possibly havefor thousands of new people flooding the job market. Our economy needs tostrengthen and grow so it can support itself before we burden our welfare systemby bringing in more unneeded workers.The issue of immigration is permanently with Canada and importantbecause every single Canadian can trace his lineage back to an immigrantsomewhere. The flow of people into Canada is not going to stop unless we passand bill to make immigration standards tougher. Lately there has been amovement to remove discriminatory law from the Canadian constitution and it isgetting so we are too politically correct. In 1996 so many Asians floodedVancouver that a separate school system had too be set up to accommodate thesestudents who would not learn English or fit into the full English schools. Thisrepresents astronomical costs to British Columbia's already stretchededucational system all because Canada does not regulate the flow of immigrantsfrom any country. This type of law would be "discriminatory". Another exampleof where Canada's polite policy falls short of common sense is that we letcancer patients, and people who carry the virus that leads to AIDS i...
