Immigration policy must fulfill our economic needs
My campaign is based on free markets and small government principles. I am opposed to big government policies in all spheres of life.
This is why I would bring back the number from 300,000 to 250,000 as it was on average under the Harper government.
Preventing our businesses from hiring the immigrant manpower they need with red tape is a big government policy. At the other extreme, mass immigration that would create social tensions and is not in the interest of Canadians is also a big government policy. A government under my leadership would find an appropriate middle ground so as to unleash Canada's economic potential.
