in previous post, I’ve outlined justin’s immigration scam and hemp solution. I got some messages about that piece. One was an investigation, the other was an abomination, and I am disgusted and offended that anyone could disagree with me. They are clearly more interested in promoting misinformation.
I’m just kidding.
While the last post focused on Justin’s blatant corruption with McKinsey, this post goes into more detail regarding The economics of migration. Even if Trudeau’s government doesn’t hand over $66 million in taxpayer money to a global advisory firm, even if he uses the immigration bureaucracy that’s already in place, we’ll still have a problem.
Namely, Canada is going through a massive demographic transition and importing more people is not going to fix it. Fortunately, there is a solution, and yes, it is a Special Economic Zone (SEZ). But I will explain in more detail how that works.
How did we get here
It’s hard to see the problem when this is the first time we’ve encountered it. Since the creation of Canada in 1867, the federal government has had a broad and open immigration policy. And since the 1960s, there has been general support across the political spectrum for an open-door immigration policy.
But let’s dig deeper, because there is no single, homogeneous federal immigration policy.
Canada has a points-based immigration system, known as Express Entry, which allows skilled workers to immigrate to the country. Candidates are awarded points based on education, work experience, language proficiency, and age. The government invites those with the highest scores to apply for permanent residence.
But Canada also has family sponsorship programs for refugees and temporary foreign workers. The government sets annual targets for immigration and regularly updates its policies to meet the economic and social needs of the country, as determined by the federal bureaucracy.
Or at least once at a time. Justin Trudeau outsourced Canadian immigration goals and policies to McKinsey, the global company associated with the World Economic Forum. They want half a million new Canadians every year. Can Canadian infrastructure handle it? It doesn’t matter.
Now, what kind of immigrants does Canada welcome? While Canada has an Express Entry system for skilled workers, under the Justin Trudeau government, the focus has been on family reunification and refugees.
But even if Canadians go to the polls this year and elect enough Conservative MPs to form a government, many of these skilled workers are already in their 30s and 40s.
Unlike the United States, where young Mexicans walk across the border. Or in the European Union, where young migrants risk their lives across the Mediterranean. In Canada, immigrants arrive by plane. These aren’t your twenty-somethings looking forward to a better life. They are already well-established adults looking forward to a better life.
the difference? The older group in the system don’t pay as much before they retire. The net financial benefits of immigration go out the window when an immigrant spends less time paying in the system than they get in old age.
Immigration scam Justin
The problem with Canadian immigration is that the arrivals are much larger. Because of government Ponzi schemes created in the 20th century, all levels of Canadian government need a higher birth rate. They don’t get it from the current population.
So they ramped up immigration to fill in the gaps. But, as mentioned above, the problem of prioritizing family reunification and older immigrants makes this economic argument irrelevant.
Moreover, the government actively ignored immigration corruption until recently. Over the past twenty-three years, many people have immigrated to Canada to purchase real estate.
And that’s it.
They want a Canadian passport and a place to hide their assets. They don’t take jobs and tend to live elsewhere.
Combine this with the NIMBYism of local politicians, the anti-landlord policies of provincial governments, and the manipulation of interest rates at the federal level – and you have a property bubble – Canadian-born people who can’t even afford to live here.
Justin Trudeau announced new property laws so that foreigners can only buy (most types of) real estate if they live here. Too little, too late, some critics say. Not to mention the unintended consequences.
It can be a mistake of optics to have empty luxury homes Vancouver. But the tax revenues from this system tell another story.
Not to worry, says Abdul Justin. We can tax the tar Alberta. It didn’t matter that we didn’t put money into the export infrastructure. Or Ottawa’s public anti-carbon stance.
The truth is, the Ponzi schemes of the 20th century social safety net are falling apart. We always knew this would happen once the baby boomers started to retire. The difference is that massive immigration will not solve these demographic issues.
If anything, they will raise cultural and ethnic issues, and perhaps questions about the nature of the Canadian state, the rule of law, and what constitutes Canadian culture.
Justin’s Immigration Policy is a SCAM. Here’s how to fix it.
How does the Special Economic Zone work?
If you are a regular reader, you know that I am promoting Special economic zones (Special Economic Zones) as a way to liberalize the cannabis economy.
For those who need a primer, a special economic zone is a geographic area with economic and other laws more geared toward the free market than typical state or national laws. Designed to increase foreign investment, trade and economic growth, the Special Economic Zone in this context will take into account the supply chain. Usually, include chopsticks in our manufacturing processes.
SEZs often have relaxed regulations, lower taxes, and other incentives for businesses operating within their borders. This is what provides motivation. Real-world examples include the Shenzhen Special Economic Zone in China and the Jebel Ali Free Zone in Dubai.
A cannabis special economic zone in Canada to combat Justin’s immigration fraud
SEZs tend to be more general, with no specific industrial focus. These areas may provide a more favorable business environment for various companies and industries. But we can design SEZs to promote the development of a specific sector, such as cannabis.
In this sense, the federal government (which is not run by Justin Trudeau) will create a special economic zone to attract companies in the cannabis sector and manufacture certain products.
Of course, SEZs are not a guarantee of success. Successful SEZs depend on various factors such as the attractiveness of incentives, the availability of skilled labor, and the general economic climate.
But there are examples from the real world. And not only in third world countries.
For example, in the United States, there are many different economic development zones, such as foreign trade and empowerment zones. These zones offer tax incentives and other benefits to companies operating within their borders.
Similarly, in Europe, some countries have established industrial and technology parks offering similar benefits to companies.
In fact, this country already has many programs in place that are similar to special economic zones. Canada has several Foreign Trade Designated Zones (FTZs) within the country where businesses can import, store and process goods without paying specific duties or taxes.
Canada has also set up several Regional Development Agencies (RDAs) and several Business and Innovation Centers (BICs), which are supposed to help businesses grow.
So this idea is not far fetched.
What can Canadian SEZs incentivize cannabis?
How can SEZs counter Justin’s immigration scam?
Consider how plastic Manufacturers use fossil fuels in their production process and how cannabis can replace them.
Currently, the primary raw material used to make plastics is a hydrocarbon-based compound called a polymer, which manufacturers derive from natural gas or petroleum.
But plant biomass, such as hemp-based materials, can be converted into hydrocarbon-based polymers through a process called pyrolysis. Manufacturers can use this as a raw material to produce plastics.
This is the advantage of a low-tax and regulation-free environment such as special economic zones. Entrepreneurs can learn how to make hemp-based polymers easily and profitablely replicable.
Consider what a hemp biomass SEZ could do:
- Direct combustion: Entrepreneurs can burn biomass directly to produce heat and electricity. This is usually done in power plants designed to burn biomass specifically or in combined heat and power (CHP) systems.
- Gasification: Entrepreneurs can convert biomass into a gaseous fuel, such as syngas, through gasification. They can then use this gas to generate electricity or as a feedstock to produce chemicals and transportation fuels.
- Anaerobic digestion: Microorganisms can break down biomass to produce biogas, especially methane and carbon dioxide. Businessmen can use this biogas to generate electricity and heat or to clean it and use it as fuel.
- Pyrolysis: Biomass can be heated without oxygen to produce bio-oil. Businesses can use this liquid fuel in internal combustion engines and boilers.
- Biodiesel: Businesses can convert biomass into biofuels through transesterification, which involves removing glycerol from fats. Entrepreneurs can use biodiesel in diesel engines to replace or blend fossil diesel.
Canada’s SEZ does not fix our demographic problem. It does not erase Justin’s immigration corruption and fraud. But it creates hope for the future. The Special Economic Zone provides jobs and rewards entrepreneurship.
And with many communities in the north Ontario With the loss of its population, a special economic zone can be created in an area with roads and basic infrastructure already built.
If it doesn’t work, it doesn’t work. Do no harm. But there is no point in not trying.
