Canada Needs Immigrants, Just Not So Many


It makes sense to temporarily reduce the number of immigrants to be admitted to, say, 150,000, as was recently proposed by Maxime Bernier, the leader of the Peoples' Party of Canada. And then we must watch closely to see what happens to immigrants' earnings and cost of housing and congestion. If they continue to be a problem, the number admitted needs to be lowered some more. If they improve, the number could be maintained or even raised.
