Swept Away – North Of The Border
Gwynne Dyer recently said in a speech at a local
high school that post-1960`s immigration “saved” Canada

Why did Dyer think it saved Canada?
“Canadian mosaic,” a concept touted by
Canadian multiculturalists as the opposite of the
melting pot, cause separatist Quebecois to become
contented and loyal subjects of the Queen?
Not at all. The immigrants simply
it not for the new Canadians who voted 90 per cent for
Canada in the close 1995 Quebec referendum, Canada would
have split into two countries, said Dyer.”
Canada has changed in the past
thirty-odd years, as result of
government policy more or less along the lines of
the U.S. Immigration act of 1965.
years, Canada has been transformed from a country that
was 98 per cent white European and two per cent native
into a reflection of the entire globe, said Dyer, a
freelance journalist whose column is syndicated in 175
papers in 45 countries.”
Dyer attributes the change in
Canada`s ethnic balance to a decision made by one man:
Canada`s late Prime Minister,
Pierre Elliott Trudeau.
`strongly suspects` Trudeau made a conscious decision to
do this to ease tensions between the English and French,
who he compared to `two scorpions in a bottle.`”
Dyer thinks this is a good thing. I
think it`s a bad thing. Either way, it was a secret
thing. No one ever put it to a vote. I suspect most
Canadians, like most Americans, think it just happened,
like winter snowfalls or summer humidity.
Prime Minister Trudeau didn`t stand
up in Canada`s House of Commons and say “Quebec won`t be
able to separate because I will import foreigners to
outvote you.” He didn`t say that he was going to change
Canada from a basically bicultural (English and French)
country to a country where 20 percent of the inhabitants
had been born elsewhere.
believed in Canadian unity,` said Dyer. `I think he
social engineered us into change and, if so, he`s the
man who saved this country. We`re in the midst of one of
the largest social experiments ever and it`s working.`”
In fact, of course, whether it`s
working or not is
debatable – although rarely in Canada`s intensely
politically-correct media. And the same thing is
happening in the United States. See
“Swept Away” by Peter Brimelow and Ed Rubenstein, or
their 1997 article,
“Electing a New People,” detailing how immigration
can destroy the Republican Party.
the uprising of the 17th June
The Secretary of the Writers Union
Had leaflets distributed in the Stalinallee
Stating that the people
Had forfeited the confidence of the government
And could win it back only
By redoubled efforts. Would it not be easier
In that case for the government
To dissolve the people
And elect another?
Apparently the late Prime Minister
Trudeau felt that way.
It`s not unlikely that the
Democrats feel the same way.
The obvious question is this: why
Republicans letting them get away with it?
