The Canadian Army has been sent to the city of Abbotsford, B.C., to shore up the earth in order to prevent it from reverting to a lake . In First Reading, it was mentioned that a body of water was drained in the 1920s to make way for farmland. The system of pumps and dikes that keep the lake from flooding was damaged by the heavy rains. The army is supposed to build a new two-kilometre-long dike that would cause more than a dozen homes and businesses to be submerged permanently.

This year The number of immigrants entering Canada is expected to increase The minister of immigration is Sean Fraser An interview with a news agency Canadian immigration is likely to top 400,000 in 2021. The first record of new Canadians in 1913 was 400,900, and was set largely due to federal efforts to populate homesteads in the prairies. Immigration could rise to 411,000 by the year 2022

The number of immigrants entering Canada has never been higher It is still lower than the high rates of mass immigration that Canada experienced prior to the First World War The year of 400,900 immigration in 1913 was more than five per cent of the population, meaning that the population was only 7.6 million. The 401,000 that entered Canada in the year of 2020 represents a rise of only one per cent

Canada has a problem with organized crime We allowed huge swaths of our real estate to be used for drugs and other crimes Drug money can be laundered The federal government’s own investigators determined that criminals were shaking down untold amounts of money How telling it is Nobody in the city of Ottawa has said they would respond to it.
