Following years of absurdly high levels of immigration, Liberal PM Justin Trudeau admitted that his own policies are catastrophically untenable and drove Canadian wages down.

Trudeau admits his immigration plan is a failure

By Trudeau’s own admission, “Over the past few years, we’ve seen a massive spike in temporary immigration, whether it’s temporary foreign workers or whether it’s international students in particular that have grown at a rate far beyond what Canada has been able to absorb.”

“To give an example, in 2017, two per cent of Canada’s population was made up of temporary immigrants. Now we’re at 7.5 per cent of our population comprised of temporary immigrants. That’s something we need to get back under control.”

Trudeau made this admission at a news conference yesterday in Dartmouth, where he intended to address the housing crisis, which has also been driven, at least in part, by his immigration policies.

Trudeau admits immigration drives wages down

It was difficult to make out what the PM was saying due to the sounds of energized protesters banging drums, but he further admitted that besides being out of control, immigration has driven down Canadian wages and is “putting pressure on our communities”.

“That’s something that we need to get back under control, both for the benefit of those people because international students we’re seeing increasingly vulnerable to mental health challenges, to not being able to thrive and get the education they want. But also, increasingly more and more businesses [are] relying on temporary foreign workers in a way that is driving down wages in some sectors.”

As many will have heard, Canada reached a population of 41 million last week—just 9 months after hitting 40 million. That’s one million people, many of whom are temporary economic immigrants (primarily from India and China), who were brought into Canada in the middle of one of the worst housing, rent, and cost of living crises in recent memory, further putting pressure on the market to provide living accommodations it simply does not have and cannot create fast enough due to the never-ending growth of the country through immigration.

However, despite his admission that kicking the doors open for millions of “temporary” economic immigrants to come over was a mistake, he still plans on increasing the number of permanent residents he welcomes into Canada each and every year until he’s removed from office.

“Every year, we bring in about 450,000, now close to 500,000, permanent residents a year, and that is part of the necessary growth of Canada. It benefits our citizens, our communities, it benefits our economy,” Trudeau said, echoing previous statements.
