To all those people who worry about Canada's impending population crises, I have to ask, why?
So Canada will have fewer people. So what? We wont have less copper, less gold, less lumber, less uranium, less oil or less food.
Give a man a fish you feed him for a day, teach him how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. Too many people in Canada know how to fish. We are running out of fish, not fishermen!
The forestry sector is a lot less labour intensive than it used to be. Dito for agriculture. We have more machines in all sectors of our economy. Shouldn't we start thinking about having fewer people?
Fewer customers might be a problem if you own a Tim Hortens franchise, but for everybody else, there will be plenty of consumers south of the border and in Asia.
