*** Plight of helpless permanent residents of Canada ***
Overall, it reflects the current government's policies, colossal neglect of our economy compensate by bringing more highly educated immigrants on PR, who brings money to pump into the local economy. Leave them to slog their whole lives looking for jobs or end up working in menial jobs if they are lucky.
How many jobs this government has created except making attempts to create more scare among residents to swell their vote bank.
By raising the bar for citizenship, again immigrants forced to pay $ 630 silently and wait for years thus stop competition for Federal jobs.
Can government afford to raise taxes or ask the citizens to pay $200 more towards taxes ??? There will be hundreds of protest around the country by outraged citizens against the government. Yet not a single politician raised voice against citizenship fee raised from $100 to $630 plus dragging the process to years and years on flimsy excuses.
Were they scared, they may be charged under C-51 bill for treason for raising the objections to country's income ? Trust me, the same politicians will be coming to your door begging for votes in few months.
