We already see how China host foreigners, whether they are nice friends or disgusting aliens. Whether they are worth the hospitality or not.

Now let's discuss why some of them chose to come to China. These maybe some of the reasons.

Canada's unemployment rate rose to an 11-year high of 8.4 per cent in May as the country lost 41,800 jobs, Statistics Canada said Friday.
The jobless rate was up from eight per cent in April, when the country added about 36,000 jobs.
Economists had been looking for about 36,000 jobs to be lost in May.


Full-time employment dropped by 58,700 last month, bringing total full-time losses since October to 406,000.
Part-time employment rose by 17,000, continuing a trend since October 2008 that has seen 44,000 part-time workers added.


Statistics Canada said also said the summer student job market got off to a tough start in May, with the number of employed students in the 20-to-24 age range fell by 59,000 compared to a year earlier, all in full-time work.

May's unemployment rate was 18.3 per cent for this group of students, compared to 15.4 per cent in May 2008.

Child poverty in Canada
The Toronto Star, by Vipal Jain, November 20th, 2009 ( Canada's Child Day and the 20th anniversary of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child)

One in nine Canadian children, more than a million, live below the poverty line according to the 2008 Report Card on Child and Family Poverty in Canada. Although this should be a concern every day, it is especially a concern on Nov. 20, National Child Day and the 20th anniversary of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of a Child (UNCRC).
Fifteen years ago, the Canadian government resolved to eliminate child poverty by the year 2000. Nine years later, nothing has changed. The rate of child poverty has remained at 12 per cent for two decades now, according to Statistics Canada.
“For many families, it’s very difficult to get out of poverty. There isn’t enough money to feed the children, clothe them properly, or even enough money to pay for the bus fare or to look for a job,” says Grant Wilson, President of Canadian Children’s Rights Council. It’s even harder for new Canadian children and aboriginal families as they are at a greater risk of living in poverty, according to the report.
Wilson says that the main reason for child poverty is lack of political will. Canada has ratified the UNCRC, requiring it to report on how it is fulfilling its human rights obligations. Countries are required to report every five years and the most recent deadline was January 2009. Canada still hasn’t completed the report. “The federal government doesn’t take this seriously and it’s not really a priority,” says Wilson.
Michele Peterson-Badali, Associate Professor of Developmental Psychology at the University of Toronto takes the issue one step further by criticizing the fact that the convention doesn’t have any legal force or impact any areas of Canadian law. “In other countries, when they ratify the convention, it becomes part of the law. Many European countries work that way.” She says that Canada’s legal system isn’t built to fight child poverty, as there aren’t any penalties for not meeting the standards of the convention.
Peterson-Badali says tackling this problem requires the Canadian federal government to make social commitments and long-term social policy, which supports parents and their children. Countries with reduced child poverty have achieved their goals by having effective child benefits, quality childcare practices, more childhood education for parents and national affordable housing systems.
“There’s an important role people can fulfill by taking to their Member of Parliament about child poverty,” Wilson says. Canadians need to show concern in order to set new targets and deadlines and finally put an end to child poverty in Canada.
Vipal Jain is a Grade 12 student from Mississauga. She hopes to travel to a developing country one day and learn more about the issues affecting children.

Waaaayyyyy more Chinese trying to get Canadian (And USA, UK, Australia, New Zealand, etc.) passports, especially the well to do, why is that?

It's like a rite of passage in the PRC, make some money and get a foreign passport. Seems liuyadao, is bitter to see so many comrades abandon ship when he ain't qualified. Envy kills.

Maybe you're right.

The difference is the Chinese that flock into Canada have enough capability to survive and live well back in mainland China.

When losers like wowzers can't manage to survive in his own country.

You'll believe whatever you want to believe about me. You'll say whatever you want to say about me. The personal attacks will no doubt continue. Anything to divert from the issues at hand.

But the issues will remain, there is nothing you can do about that. Except of course, keep your head in the sand, then they will go away. Carry on comrade.
