I really don't mind all the immigration but it irks me they all seem to come from one of 3 countries.

India is one, China is another.

Can you guess the third country?

I love rock and roll, just put another dime in the juice box baby.

The lion's share of highly skilled immigrants coming to North America tend to go to a certain country located between Canada and Mexico, and of the ones who do come to Canada, Ontario and specifically Toronto seems to benefit most from these.

Vancouver seems to attract a lot of immigrants with money (and often questionable at that) but not much in the way of skills or inclination towards creating world class industries and not just investing in real estate or local retail.
