Bernier also says that if we want to have more economic immigration, we will need less of other types of immigration.
In an interview with PrimeTime Politics on CPAC, People’s Party Leader Maxime Bernier said Canada’s immigration system must be more focused on economic immigration and that would mean a reduction in other types of immigration.
When asked if Bernier felt Canada has too many refugees, he said “I think we have too many refugees and we must focus more on the need of our country.”

Bernier makes an important point. As I’ve said many times, Canada’s government exists to serve the Canadian People, not foreign countries or non-citizens. We need to focus the limited resources of government on helping Canadians first and foremost.
Additionally, we’ve seen what happens in Europe, where massive amounts of refugees – particularly from the Islamic world – have entered nations on that continent, leading in many cases to an increase in crime, terrorism, and a failure to integrate with Western values based upon the dignity of the individual.
We don’t want that to happen in Canada, and Bernier is right to be bringing this up. Andrew Scheer and the Conservatives should also speak up for the majority of Canadians who want a tougher immigration system, and want the Canadian People to finally be put first.
