of massive immigration and hiring quotas for minorities. Its not all their fault. My job was also automated due to technology. I left my hometown more than once just to sustain employment. I am single. I dont have any help at all. I moved to ottawa in 2007 and worked in my field for about a year, making good mo ney. Since then I only h ave found 2 temporary jobs and I am top of my field. I also am not french speaking- so this is not related to immigration at all. The longest I had a job in canada (and I worked since I was 15) is 4 years and that was in vancouver, BC at a university. I have been back to college twice but there is no work in any of what I studied in college its all been automated by technology. Since I am white and over 30 I will not be hired for the other jobs such as retail and the food industry. (this is mainly due to people coming to canada on visas and taking all those jobs away from local people who need them including: mature women born here who need to work or do not have a high level of education as in a masters degree or degree and or college students who also need to work to help their parents pay for their university tuition which is through the roof now. Because I am white, I do not qualify for any special programs or free grants, its highly unfair considering so many newcomers can apply for these and they al so get subsidized housing (some of them not all ). I had to live in rooms in ottawa since 2009 when a newcomer comes 8 months pregnant, no english and gets a free townhouse filled with furniture. I am not a racist person either but canada has the highest unemployment in the G7, its a global recession and we should not be bringing in people unless they have money to start a business or they are a brilliant scientist or chemist or sports person. WE cannot keep continuing to pay for other peoples- I know everyone deserves a better life but we have to work on our own nation first, alot of people are suffering, out of work and in need and I also think some of our seniors need our support. Finally something need to be done about the rising hydro costs in Ontario which we will see a 40% increase- we already lost 350000 jobs that were union jobs and will not come back! Its high time we stop paying the managers salaries of 1.2 million each a year!!!
