In 2022, the number of Canadians rose by 1,050,110. This marks the first time in Canadian history that our population grew by over 1 million people in a single year, and the highest annual population growth rate (+2.7%) on record since 1957 (+3.3%).

Lots are coming through the land border, presumably, via the porous border of the US.

Legally, if not morally.

ApplyBoard, has raised an investment of $300 million at a valuation of $3.2 billion. A significant part of this funding will be utilised to expand its operations and team in India. https://yourstory.co...stment-series-d

 

That is only one "edtech" company of many. Active recruitment to attend virtual schools. 

 

Like I said. Re-Colonization.

Did we not have a major issue with asylum seekers, at the US/Canada border?

Have for years at the Roxham crossing.

But the immigration we have today is 99% legal.

Feds say 140,000 asylum applications were received in 2023.

I’m not sure if that’s via people at the border primarily or primarily applications from afar.

Did they give you a reason?

No, just the usual blather. It's interesting that I checked both Vancouver and Burnaby library systems and they have it.

The covenant text released on Friday goes even further, referring to preliminary GPR findings of “roughly 200” anomalies, “some of which might be unmarked graves of former students,” but more research would be required “to determine what exists in that part of the former residential school site.”

 

From the outset, even among Tk’emlúps people there was a great deal of skepticism and disbelief in stories about nuns waking children in the middle of the night to bury their murdered classmates under the light of the moon.

 

In the summer of 2022, Casimir’s office was presented with an independent site-inspection report that strongly suggested that whatever “anomalies” were detected in the original GPR survey, they were likely the result of ground disturbances going back decades, from irrigation ditches and backhoe trenches to utility lines, water lines and even earlier archeological digs. By then, 14 leading Tk’emlúps families had already told Casimir that an excavation of some kind was necessary to clear things up.

 

No excavation has occurred, and none is planned.
