外文标题：Chinese plead for Canada to let them immigrate
Chinese millionaires on Tuesday pleaded for the Canadian government not to throw away the immigration applications of thousands of Chinese nationals as part of its plans to end a backlogged investor program.
At a news conference, 10 investor applicants delivered their crestfallen message — that their faith in Canada as a "trustworthy country," with its attractive rule of law, environment and welfare system, was wavering.
Last month, Canada announced its intention to terminate its immigrant investor program and eliminate the longstanding backlog of applications — amounting to more than 65,000 people, most of whom are Chinese. It said immigrant investors pay less in taxes than other immigrants and are less likely to stay in Canada over the medium to long term.
Investor applicants, some of whom had applied five years ago, said they were discussing their options with lawyers in Canada and whether to claim compensation for the years they had been waiting.
As China's top leaders meet during this week's ceremonial legislature, the National People's Congress, it is a reminder that all is not well at home, and suggests for some citizens, the "Chinese dream" that President Xi Jinping talks about is to be found on other shores.
Shanghai-based Duan Wuhong said for her, Canada's education system, environment, social welfare and rule of law were pull factors. But she added: "The most important thing is the government is trusted. This is the most important thing for us to choose Canada."
She said at the time of her application she had considered other countries including the U.S. "Applying to Canada is the worst decision I have made in my life. Before I thought it was the best."
Immigration consultant Larry Wang said that Canadian government's policy was "unjustified" and the investor applicants want Canada to "correct its mistake."
"They are not refugees. They can have a very good life in China. They just want to have a better life in Canada," said Wang, a Beijing-born Canadian.
Wang said it was Canada's right to stop its investor program, but it should not disqualify candidates who had already applied.
and Canada realize what will happen if chinese investors are in... more investors more human trafficking hehehehe
Chinese just don't get it... Cananda doesn't #$%$ want you guys!!!! Keep your Chinese money in China!!
It appears to be an attempt for the invasion of Canada by China.
Typical arrogant chinese, they thought they can fool everyone. They were not let in because their IQ and EQ are way lower than Canada's standard (and maybe about every country's standard). Canada was just courteous enough not to say it in their faces. Seems chinese hasn't figured it out yet.
No one wants chinease #$%$ in canada. Chinease stay OUT.. We dont want you in canada... Oh yeah,,, They cant read english.....
Give the US back to the Red Indians
I am a Canadian citizen, and I lived in Victoria, British Columbia, for 6 years, in the early 80s. Even then, with the loss of Hong Kong approaching, the place was crawling with Chinese, especially in Vancouver. The corner stores were called "Chinese stores".
In early 1977, I taught math at the University of Toronto, and nearly all the students were sour-looking Chinese. It was most depressing.
Too Bad.. Whats wrong with your "Great" country of China.??? Stay were you belong.. or are you going to come here to steal more secrets ???
Who built the railroads in your great country?
sent those chinese back to china..
If they allow these Chinese to migrate to Canada tomorrow China will also say they own Canada due to historical value.
Or they might send troops to protect their minorities like the Russians do.
let them go to a yellow Asian country why do they have to go to a white majority country
That's as it should be, keep the rich at home to boost the local Chinese economy.
Thanks Canadian Government for not letting these worms enter your country, you will be better without these corrupt people.
Wow! Even their own Chinese Investor don't trust their own Government and their educational System.
Canada already looks like little China.
