It's Trudeau, not Bernier, who's the outlier on immigration

“Say No to Mass Immigration.” This statement is, apparently, beyond the pale.

“It’s hurtful,” read a quoted featured in the Calgary Herald. A Toronto Star story described it as “deceptive,” while a headline in the Sun papers quoted someone calling it “very racist.”

It’s hard to imagine the bubble-wrapped, politically correct world one has to live in to consider these five words to be “very racist.”

Is a country allowed to set its own immigration policy? Do citizens have a say in the ever growing levels of newcomers being admitted into their country?

Given the hysteric reaction over a mundane election billboard from a third party group supporting Maxime Bernier and the People’s Party of Canada, the answer to these questions is a resounding no.

The billboards were pulled down, due to the angry mob of activists who demand that Canada not have debates about immigration.

The billboard had a simple message: “say no to mass immigration,” and reflects Bernier’s policy position. In contrast to the other major parties, Bernier wants to lower immigration levels. Not drastically, but down to 250,000 new permanent residents per year.

For reference, Canada admitted 240,000 newcomers in 2015. Prime Minister Trudeau has ramped up immigration levels, with plans to increase the number to 350,000 new permanent residents per year next year. In its 2018 immigration proposal, the Trudeau government admitted these were “the most ambitious immigration levels in recent history.”

Trudeau may not only be the outlier, he’s an out-and-out liar. Watch him affirm he’s a Catholic — who blocks any potential Liberal candidates unless they promise to uphold his pro-abortion position, which in true doublespeak Trudeau has called “women’s reproductive rights”.

But this interview with Hasan Minhaj (probably well-known to millennials but not to older people) will probably result in a tick upwards for Trudeau, particularly given a possible split of the conservative vote.
