…but only rarely in Canada:
Were either main party to propose bringing back serious and effective restrictions on immigration, they would gain significant electoral support, and not just from the white working class. Some of the strongest supporters of reducing immigration are recent immigrants [not in Canada, I think – MC], for they suffer most from the competition of newer arrivals who are willing to work for even less in even harsher conditions. The consensus among the bien pensants that immigration is an unalloyed benefit has been so strong for so long that it will take a great deal of political courage from either Labour or the Conservatives to oppose it. But does anyone seriously think that squashing in an extra seven million people over the next 20 years is going to make this country a better place in which to live?
How may millions in the GTA?
