No Welfare for Immigrants:

How to achieve unanimity in the Canadian Immigration debate

Here's just a few, off the cuff, ideas for addressing most of the objections Canadian tax captives have about immigration.

In Canada as it is set up now, only a fool can be in favour of open borders.

As as libertarian, I remain 100% in favour of open borders, but only under certain conditions. The most important condition is that Canada be a free country. Since that is obviously not the case, I cannot support open borders at this time.

Here are a few other conditions that, if met, would make me more agreeable to open borders, even without abolishing state education, government medical insurance, welfare, public pensions, the CBC, and so on,

1 - no welfare payments, especially child tax benefit payments, for immigrants for at least a period of time, say ten, or X, years.

2 - no free medicare for X years. (The word is that there are a lot of Pakistani MD's driving cabs. Restrictions on the practice of medicine for them should be eliminated so that they could serve the immigrant communities, or the greater community for that matter, at market prices. If they are competent, they will prosper. If not, they can go back to cab driving.)

3 - no free education for X years.

4 - no free or subsidized housing for X years.

5 - no free language courses, or any other immigrant assistance programs, period.

6 - restoration of free speech, including the right to express dislike of alien newcomers due to their habits, customs, religious superstitions, body odors, food smells, or for any other reasons, including the hassles of attempting to communicate with people who can't speak our language, and even if one dislikes newcomers for no reason at all.

7 - the right to translate one's free speech into freedom of action so long as it conforms to the non-aggression principle. This would include the right to refuse accommodation, employment, taxi rides, washroom access, and so on, to anyone you don't like regardless of the reasons you may have for disliking them, or for no reason at all.

I would guess that these simple changes to the welfare state benefit system, along with the restoration of free speech, and freedom of association, would defuse the objections of the majority of the host Canadian population, as well as reduce the popularity of Canada as a destination for alien welfare tourists.

Think about it.Do you feel like a refugee in your own country? Do you feel that your right to disagree has been diminished?

Will you stand up? Or bend over?


  1. Well put Hans. It would hopefully bring in immigrants who really want to be here and take advantage of a country that they could surely thrive in with hard work and freedom from whatever shit hole they came from.

How to Save the Ontario Basic Income Program!Background Leftist Ontario virtue signallers have been freaking out over the Ford government's cancellation of the Basic Income free money project that was cooked up by the Wynne government to build up their voter base. I follow a few of these caring individuals on Twitter to study their self delusions. They've all been afflicted lately with Ford Derangement Syndrome, peacocking their indignation at the cancellation of Wynne's free money giveaway "program." But does the program really have to be cancelled? Of course not. All it would require to be saved is for the virtue signallers, and there are loads of them, from Deb Matthews and Andrea Horwath, to a parade of obscure, Twitter addicts, and their offended fans. The good news is that the program can easily continue on a voluntary basis. The only difference is that the leftists would have to reach into their own pockets to show how committed and compassionate they …
Cab Drivers Endure Verbal Abuse Friday, October 6, 2017 A group of rowdy young males approached the taxi stand at about 10:00 P.M. looking for a taxi ride to Guelph Line and Upper Middle Road in Burlington, a distance of 18.2 Km. The spokesman for the group offered the driver $20 for the ride. An 18.2 Km. ride in a taxi would run approximately ($1.80/Km X 18.2 Km + $3.90 =) $36.65 at the non-Uber taxi tariff rate mandated by the City of Hamilton for non-exempt (I.E. non-Uber) taxis. The same ride in an Uber taxi, at non-surge pricing would run ($2.50 + $2.80 + 18.2 Km X $.90/Km) = $21.68. As is so typical of younger Canadians, raised and educated in Ontario's liberal dominated "Me First" culture of entitlement, the rider became indignant and intimidating when the driver refused to match Uber's rate and break the law. The millennial then taunted all of the non-exempt cabbies who were present by announcing he would take a tariff-exempt Uber taxi instead. Some …
My Warning from an "Moderator." I just got a message from one of the moderators of the Toronto driver's forum. In it he states, "This forum values opinions from all angles. However, being argumentative, name-calling, personal attacks, instigating other members, and any post that can be deemed confrontational will not be tolerated. Please refrain from any posts of this manner, even if instigated. We hope you can tone it back a bit going forward. Please review the terms and rules" I think he was feeling a bit humiliated after he read my criticism of his limp response to my "Uberpeople Service Animal Discussion" that I posted in the Toronto Uber taxi driver forum. Things have really changed in the last twenty-five years. It used to be quite the rollicking back and forth in discussion forums. Now, whenever you get the better of some smart-ass who takes shots at you, he threatens to have yo…
