On Monday, we spoke with Roger Mailhot in Montreal about a new report regarding immigration and Canada:

“One in every five Canadians is now foreign-born, the highest proportion in 75 years, a shift likely to have profound consequences for Canada’s economic and cultural future.
Canada is becoming ever more diverse, Statistics Canada’s 2006 census shows.

The country’s foreign-born population soared 13.6 per cent between 2001 and 2006 — four times higher than the Canadian-born population. For the first time, the proportion of the foreign-born population who were born in Asia and the Middle East surpassed the proportion born in Europe.
As of last year, more than half of immigrants continued to come from Asia, including the Middle East, but a growing number also came from the Americas and Africa.” (Foreign-born population hits 75-year high)

We will also discuss the US presidential election and its impact on Canada, specially free trade:

“Protectionism has emerged as a formidable force in the Democrats’ presidential politics and appeared to be spilling over in volume to the Republicans.
Senator Hillary Clinton, for example, has turned against increased free trade, and the Democratic wannabe can afford to offend the by-now strongly protectionist American labour unions.

“I’ve said for many years that NAFTA, and the way it has been implemented, has hurt a lot of American workers,” she said in August during a presidential candidates’ forum sponsored by the AFL-CIO.” (Trade ties that bind U.S., Canada unbreakable)

Last, but not least, we will discuss Afghanistan and Canada’s role.
