The dishonest Canadian establishment wants us to believe that the incredibly high levels of immigration we have been experiencing since the early 1990s, ranging from 225-000 to 320,000 immigrants per year, are not historically unprecedented but part of a normal pattern in our “nation of immigrants.” Century Initiative says:
Historically, Canada has successfully supported very high levels of immigration. In 1913, 400,000 immigrants arrived in Canada, representing over 5.2% of the population at the time.
On the surface this may seem like an honest statistic. Stats Canada is even more emphatic that “record numbers of immigrants were admitted in the early 1900s…The highest number ever recorded was in 1913, when more than 400,000 immigrants arrived.”
Ethnic Composition of Immigrants Today Is Fundamentally Different
However, as Stats Canada notes, before the 1970s, immigrants “were mainly from European countries.” As I also observed in a widely read article:
Over the 400 years before Confederation, there were only “two quite limited periods” of substantial arrivals of immigrants: from 1783 to 1812, and from 1830 to 1850. In these two periods, the immigrants were “overwhelmingly of British origin.” […] Between 1896 and 1914, Canada experienced high immigration levels with more than 3 million arriving within this period. However, the ethnic composition of the nation remained 84 percent of British and French origin, while the European component rose to 9 percent. Between 1900 and 1915, the high mark in “Asian immigration” before the 1960s, 50,000 immigrants of Japanese, East Indian and Chinese descent arrived, but this number comprised less than 2 percent of the total immigration flow. In contrast, in 1914, there were nearly 400,000 Germans in Canada, the largest ethnic group apart from the British (which includes the Irish and Scots) and French.
Facing these facts, the personnel of Century Initiative, and the academic establishment, which suppresses any thinking that is not leftist, would likely reply that their point has nothing to do with race but with the numbers of immigrants, as well as how “successfully” Canada integrated these high numbers in the past.
But this is a simplistic reply. For it matters a lot that the Canada that accepted high numbers in the early 1900s was a Canada determined to maintain the Anglo-European character of the nation. Ninety percent of the immigrants who came to Canada before 1961 were from Britain. In stark contrast, the top three source countries for immigration in the last 10 years have been China, India, and the Philippines.
It is rather lazy to extrapolate that our current majority non-Western immigrants are bound to be “successfully” integrated because the Anglo-European immigrants before 1961 were so integrated. There is abundant research showing that Europeans are more individualistic in their values, whereas non-Europeans are more collectivist. Due to complex historical reasons, Whites have a greater inclination to value the individuality and rights of each person, whereas Asians, and non-Whites generally, have a stronger inclination to think in terms of their ethnic in-group interests.
Here are some links to studies corroborating the individualist values of Europeans versus the collectivist values of non-Europeans:

Therefore, one cannot use the White-only immigration numbers of the early 1900s to justify the current majority Asian numbers. What we are witnessing today, with our historically high immigration numbers, is an extreme experiment aimed at the destruction of the ethnic identity of White-created countries in the name of an idea written on paper about the superiority of race-mixed nations. There is absolutely zero evidence that this experience has been “successful” anywhere in the world since it has never been tried before. History shows that those nations with historically-inherited diverse populations have been the most divided and conflict ridden (Joan Esteban and Debraj Ray, “On the Salience of Ethnic Conflict,” The American Economic Review, Vol. 98, No. 5, 2008).
History is also showing that the ever more diversified nations of the West are now experiencing continuous terrorist attracts, massive welfare expenditures for immigrants, and systematic raping of White girls by members of collectivist cultures.
Historically Highest Number of Immigrants Since Early 1990s
Moreover, the fact is that, strictly in terms of the numbers alone, the period between 1896 and 1914, which is the period that diversity hacks say experienced the “highest levels of immigration,” has been surpassed by the longer period from 1990 to 2017. We have been experiencing since 1990 the longest period of high immigration in Canada. Between 1991 and 2000, about 2.2 million immigrants were admitted to Canada, and between 2001 and 2006 an annual average of 242,000 individuals were welcome with open arms. During the five year period from 2006 to 2011, Canada welcomed over 1,162,900 immigrants, an average above 250,000 per year. The trend has been upwards. In 2012, it admitted 257,905 immigrants; in 2013, it welcomed 259,024, and in 2014 it admitted 260,411. In 2015, the number was increased to 271,660, and in 2016 to 300,000. It is estimated that as many as 320,000 new immigrants will be welcomed in 2017.
In contrast, only for the singular years of 1907, 1908, and 1911 to 1914, that is a mere 4 years, did the number of immigrants to Canada stood above 200,000, whereas since the early 1990s, the number has remained at an average of approximately 235,000 new immigrants per year. We have everything reason to mistrust the “experts” who tell us with a smug attitude that Canada had higher levels in the early 1900s. Let them know that during the last 25 years or so we have been experiencing the highest levels of immigration.
The Century Initiative plan to bring 450,000 per year until the end of this century has no parallels whatsoever in the history of any nation since the origins of humans. It is a malicious act of deception, therefore, to justify current immigration levels by referring to the “historically” high levels of immigration of the early 1900s.
Immigration numbers today are fast destroying the ethnic and cultural identity of the founding peoples of Canada. The prediction is that by the end of this century White Canadians will constituted only 20 percent of the population inside a nation controlled by 80 percent non-Whites lusting to eliminate what they will happily identify as the “White trash” leftovers.
