It has been driven into our heads since we were students that without the population boost that Immigration provides, we would be unable to grow the economy and generate enough taxes to cover things like health care costs and the CPP (Canadian Pension Plan) . Canadians are routinely told that an aging population which is having less children is the primary reason for why Canada requires such high levels of Immigration.
Canada, a nation of about 37 million, currently takes in approximately 300,000 immigrants per year in order to maintain growth. But perhaps there other ways Canada could boost its population without depending on mass Immigration for economic relief and population growth…
Let’s take a look at some contributing factors for why Canada suffers such low birth rates. Do we really need to permit such high volumes of immigrants in order to grow a healthy economy and maintain population growth?
A point few people mention is how abortion rates factor into the equation.
Allowing free and easy access to abortion clinics In Canada has resulted in over 100,000 abortions being performed in the country annually! That’s a lot of dead Canadian babies that will never grow into adults who may one day have children of their own. It cannot be stated enough how devestating abortion practices are to our population growth.
Abolishing abortion alone would reduce the amount of immigrants we take in by 100,000 per year — 1/3 of the total amount we are currently accepting.
The Rise of LGBT
Another cause for why such low birth rates exist across the nation is the rise in homosexuality in Canada.
Canada has a very vast LGTBQ community, and homosexuals make up about 2% of the adult population between the ages of 18-60 in Canada, which equates to roughly 400,000-500,000 homosexuals residing in Canada total. That’s 400,000 people that will not procreate and will not he contributing to Canada’s population growth.
I do not wish to argue the morality of homosexuality in this blog — I am simply stating the facts that homosexuality is obviously counterproductive to increasing our nation’s fertility rate. This point cannot be debated with logic, although I’m sure many on the left would love to deploy a barrage of “arguments” consisting of nothing more than emotionally driven insults and name calling directed at me and those with similar viewpoints…
As we all know, Canada certainly has a strong SJW community, and with SJW’s comes the dreaded third wave post-modernist feminism that everybody just can’t get enough of, right??? Pffft…
Feminists today largely advocate for women to abandon the “shackles of the home” and to enter the work force in order to become “independent” and “empowered”. Motherhood is portrayed as a submission to the patriarch and pursuing a career is heavily rewarded with praise from feminists and Leftists alike. These attitudes create tremendous amounts of pressure for women to trade motherhood for careers — pursuing financial goals instead of family goals.
The High Cost Of Living
Heavy taxes combined with the high cost of living in Canadian cities has also greatly affected Canadians willingness to commit to having children and raising families. Things like getting rent in on time, paying an arm and leg for hydro heating and groceries, and paying off huge student loans has left many Canadians disinterested in taking on the additional financial burdens that comes with raising a child.
Canadian couples are putting off having kinds until they can afford a house only to find that it may be too late to have kinds by the time they actually get there. “We’re just not quite ready yet” is an all too familiar phrase now….
From a logical standpoint, if more Canadians were heterosexual — if the country were to ban abortions — if Canada created better financial incentives for new parents — and if feminism were to just take a back seat — our population would sky rocket and there would not be a need for western nations to permit mass immigration like we’re currently seeing.
On top of promoting traditional values that will be condusive to population growth, we must as well provide additional tax breaks and create other financial incentives for couples to desire children. Furthermore, we must find a way to make housing more affordable for couples to actually own homes — comfortably raise children, and have a happy family.
It is my hope that we will one day restore traditional values to this country which will ultimately extinguish our need for mass immigration. Will that day ever come? Well it depends on how upset Canadians become as we continue to move towards a culturally depleted society…
