In terms of our country’s future, one of the most critical issues has been perpetually shunned by Canadian media. It involves the inevitable transition of Anglophone “Old Stock” Canadians to minority community status. Despite media obfuscation, this development appears inevitable.
By 2036, it is projected that between 44.2% and 49.7% of the population will be first or second generation immigrants. Nearly one of every two Canadian residents will be a first or second generation immigrant.
A 2011 census reveals that more than 90% of Canada’s immigrant population are centred in Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver. By 2036, three of every four residents in Toronto and Vancouver will be immigrants, or born to an immigrant parent.
On this basis, in less than twenty years, 75% of Toronto and Vancouver residents will be non-Anglophone. StatsCan projects that the group most impacted by this change will be those of European descent.
By 2036, European-born citizens are expected to decrease to between 15.4% and 17.8%. of the overall Canadian demographic.
Based upon these projections, why is it that CBC, CTV, Globe & Mail and the rest of mainstream media breathe not a word about the coming minority status for Anglo-Canadians? This is not some distant dream of the 22nd century. Based on statistical data from the Canadian government, the transition will occur somewhere around thirty years into the future.
Why the SILENCE?
Do editors, writers, publishers and various media pundits not believe these statistics to be relevant within society? Are patriots to believe Canadian academia lack the cognitive ability to recognize and report on our community’s pending minority status?
Of course they don’t–and of course media know well and good this is coming our way. And yet, “silence is golden” as the most significant demographic development in a century is coming to Canada in thirty years time.
As Cultural Action Party has referenced so often, one curiousity constantly nags at us: why is it that establishment media never project into the future of society? Think it over–when was the last time you read a piece in a mainstream publication predicting the state of society in 2038? The answer is never–for good reason.
Here’s a related question which may provide a clue for the the hold-back:
Once Anglophone-minority status becomes official, will our communities then become privy to minority rights as advanced by the Charter of Rights and Freedoms? Will copious amounts of dollars begin to flow to our non-profit organizations as media promote our rights as a freshly-minted minority?
The thought is an absurdity. It will never happen. Rather, CAP predict maintenance of the status quo. Uber-powerful “multicultural” non-profits and their government lobbyists will continue to accumulate political power as if not a damn thing has changed.
Therefore, a most ominous transformation may occur: Old Stock Canadians become a vilified minority community. No wonder media keep their mouths shut.
What a set-up! Now we can see why media never speak of the future of our society– because it looks grim as heck for one identifiable community– Anglophone Canadians.
And the irony involved. PM Justin Trudeau preaches the evil of systemic racism against “racialized” Canadians. Is the future scenario described herein not a potential set-up for systemic racism against one identifiable community?
If this is what PM Trudeau meant by a “post-modern” society, CAP will take the pre-modern option every time.
