What`s wrong with it is that its not the immigrants who have the problem. They`re in Canada, where they can get welfare, and maybe divorce the husband who is beating them. At home they`d have worse problems, although they`d at least speak the language, and few of the same solutions.It`s Canada that`s facing challenges. Sometimes extreme challenges, as in the case of the Chinese immigrant who beheaded a fellow bus passenger in that part of the world, and sometimes just regular challenges, where they have immigrants who need money. But it`s not the immigrant`s problem. It`s Canada`s.
