There was a news article I read about Canada benefiting (Brain Gain) with Trump cracking down on immigration.  Apparently work visa and spousal visa in the US are becoming more difficult.   Thus more people (with special or higher skill sets) are opting to work in Canada.

Yeah, Québec's invested hard into tech the last few years and now with this, there's a massive amount of skilled tech workers in Québec.

 

I think Vancouver is benefiting from it as well.

He already has half of Quebec without even trying.what he needs is BC and Ontario and honestly, Ford is doing everything he can to gift him Ontario.

 

Seriously, wtf is Ford thinking out there?  We're going to cut everything but hey, you can drink in a park so you got that

He is losing in vote rich Ontario and BC. He likely wants to keep Quebec happy and grab more seats there as he needs them. Ford will be one and done I think at this rate.

Andrew Scheer

 

Anti gay marriage

Anti abortion

Pro private/religious/home schools

Pro guns

Pro war

Basically zero policies regarding the economy, climate change, and almost everything else.

 

:blink:

 

If people are looking for an alternative to Trudeau, this ain't it. Wait until they come into the 21st century and put up a socially progressive, fiscally conservative candidate.

Plus could possibly re-criminalize cannabis possession.   Won't even consider voting for the Cons until they get rid of the ignorant social policies.

Socially he's so deplorable that I don't even care if he releases an actual platform or not.

 

Zero chance of voting for Scheer.

Scheer = Deer in the headlights look

Trudeau = Shady individual

Jagmeet = Invisible and late to the party..

Others = Waste of my time..

I think we all suspected this, but it's a bit of an eye opener to have it confirmed:

 

https://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/politics/the-number-of-non-white-immigrants-entering-canada-is-now-a-partisan-issue-new-poll/ar-BBVZA5b?li=AAggNb9

Quote

 

Canadians are becoming increasingly polarized over issues of race and immigration, according to a new survey that suggests the divide could be a major factor in the next federal election.

The new EKOS poll is based on a relatively small sample size, but offers a snapshot of a country that is split both socially and politically.

Roughly 40 per cent of Canadians think too many immigrants entering the country are not white — and that number skyrockets among Conservative Party of Canada supporters, according to the polling.

“The key forces shifting votes away from the Liberals to Conservatives have been the issue of immigration and too many non-white immigrants,” Frank Graves told StarMetro Vancouver.

Graves is president of Ottawa-based EKOS Research Associates and has been documenting the rise of what is known as right-wing ordered or authoritarian populism. Its members are largely religious, have reservations about diversity, are deeply pessimistic about their economic future, convinced climate change matters less than their well-being and are disdainful of the “corrupt elite,” which includes media, government and academics, he says.

Sixty-nine per cent of poll respondents answered “too many” to the question of “Forgetting about the overall number of immigrants coming to Canada, of those who come, would you say there are too few, too many or the right amount who are members of visible minorities?”

69% of Scheer supporters agree with this. These are the so-called 'social conservatives' that can equate skin colour with the value of a person as an immigrant. This is why I could not vote conservative after the merger, the PC has party become something very ugly.

I guess we'll leave this part of the article out of it right ?  Much easier to go with the conservatives are racists mantra despite only 507 people in a country of over 30 million were asked

Most polls are small sample size. Most people realize that so there's really no point in bringing it up, unless the findings hit a little too close to home....

I would say financial success is up there too, and not just for immigrants. I've seen several posters demean others based on what they presume (with no evidence) the other person's financial situation is. They also equate voting NDP with being a leech. And judging by their election, I bet there are many more like them. They're not racists and assholes though, they're just misunderstood. :rolleyes:

If my memory serves me right, it's standard fare to state the sample size and margin of error. Not as a caution, but as an extra piece of information. On that note, it's also usually good practice to provide all of the relevant information when arguing, particularly when chastising someone for not doing so. Oh wait.

 

Here, let me get that for ya.

...with a margin of error of +/-4.4, 19 times out of 20

I haven't met a very successful person yet that doesn't attribute some of their success to luck. Only the arrogant ones don't. 

 

We're being dragged into some very ugly politics thanks to the alt-right, its a real shame. Or maybe its always been there and social media has given them a voice. Dunno. Either way I can't vote CPC, far too much open racism and just really bad policies.

I'll head this off quickly

 

Are you saying I'm a racist cause I vote conservative?

No I am saying racists predominantly vote conservative, the stats are right there to find

So you're saying I'm a racist?

No...I am not, can't you read?

Oh so now that I vote right I can't read?

WTF no...don't be childish

Whatever pal I read the poll it's fake news, comes from a leftists state media Trudeau paid for source

So because you don't like it you think it's fake news?

No it's fake news because it's fake news.

Oh so kinda like racists predominantly vote conservative?

Look pal I'm not a racist, not everyone who votes right is a racist

But that's not what I'm saying

No that's what you said you're lumping us all together

I did no such thing.

Yes you did, now scuse me.  They suspect some muslim of a potential terror attack and I need to go read this cause most muslims are terrorists

Wait what?

Dont forget the: you didnt vote for the conservatives so youre a leftist communist fascist socialist SJW that wants to open your house to violent MS 13 gangsters and Muslim terrorists because you want their votes (which they dont have but thats beside the point) and probably have no job and sit in your moms basement on the computer all day.
