The population of Canada is 36.71 million. The population of the United States is 325.7 million. So this would be comparable to the U.S. bringing in 8,700,000 immigrants, roughly the entire population of the state of Virginia. If anyone thinks that won’t cause massive upheaval, they’re terminally naive or ideologically blinkered.
Among these immigrants will be a certain number of Islamic jihadis, but Canadian officials show no concern about that whatsoever. Even to discuss such a possibility would be “Islamophobic.”
“Canada wants to welcome more than 1 million new immigrants in the next three years,” by Mallory Hughes, CNN, January 11, 2019:
(CNN)Remember when you said you wanted to move to Canada? Now is a good time to start packing your bags.
The Canadian Parliament has announced plans to add more than one million new permanent residents in the next three years. That’s nearly one percent of the country’s population each year.
Canada welcomed more than 286,000 permanent residents in 2017 and projects that number could reach 350,000 this year.
And 360,000 in 2020.
And 370,000 in 2021.
That’s a lot of immigrants, eh?
“Thanks in great part to the newcomers we have welcomed throughout our history, Canada has developed into the strong and vibrant country we all enjoy,” said Ahmed Hussen, Canada’s minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship (IRCC).
Hussen, himself an immigrant from Somalia, said the influx will help offset Canada’s aging population and declining birth rate while growing its labor force,
