Third World Refugees
There is a downside to admitting large numbers of third world refugees. It is common for people in the third world to have families of 11 children. They continue to have such large families once they get to Canada. It does not take long for this fecundity to create a population explosion that requires massive amounts of new housing, schools, hospitals, roads, sewers etc. to support them. Further the ethnic mix can change drastically over a few decades. This generally creates social unrest as has happened in Belgium and France.
I think we need some sort of program to provide incentives to refugees to have no more than two children. Perhaps we should not accept families of more than four people. Perhaps we should not accept families whose religion demands unrestrained breeding.~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:69)
