This is one of many stories circulating in the press today about the dire warnings issued by Canada's Auditor General. This is not the first time that Ms. Fraser issues a scathing report against Citizenship and Immigration, and she is repeating her warnings this time around. What I find interesting in the reaction by Olivia Chow, the NDP immigration critic, is how little she knows about immigration and its dynamics, aside from the standard bleeding heart cry for even higher numbers of unskilled workers to flood the system, or even abolishing git. Does she not realize that people who come without jobs, or worse, with fraudulent job offers, become an economic burden to everyone and make the processing of legitimate applicants even slower? . The Auditor General warns that the program is being used by fraudsters and that there should be MORE ,not less, controls and enforcement, and a better and more thoughtful approach, she does not advocate for making it even easier to game the system. I think Ms. Chow needs a crash course on immigration and economics 101.
