PORT CREDIT. Nightly radio broadcaster and immigration expert Paul Fromm filed nomination papers for Mayor of Mississauga this afternoon.
“Immigration is the issue,” Fromm declared. “It’s the two ton elephant in the room that the municipal politicians don’t want to discuss. They just want to babble about the supposed benefits of ‘diversity.'”
“Immigration impacts almost every major problem in Mississauga–overcrowded roads, dwindling farm land, the environment, welfare costs. If I’m elected, I’ll camp out on the Minister of Immigration’s front lawn and demand action,” said Fromm.
Ontario projections have Peel Region growing from 1.258-million in 2008 to 1.543-million in 2016. “Will the roads be any less congested? Will welfare costs be lower? Will the environment be safer with nearly another 300,000 in Peel? “asks Fromm. “Not likely.”
“Mississauga is full,” Fromm declares. “It’s more than doubled in size since I moved here in 1980,” says the Port Credit resident, who is in demand as a lecturer on immigration in Canada, the U.S., and Australia..
“According to Statistics Canada, the unemployment rate in July was 8.5% in Ontario. We don’t have enough jobs for our own people. We need a five year moratorium on immigration intake. No reflection on the present immigrant population, but we need a breather,” Fromm adds.
According to the Mississauga Planning and Building Department, Mississauga is the city with the third largest immigrant population in Canada. “From 2001 to 2006, immigrant population growth exceeded total population growth in Mississauga.
Paul Fromm is a graduate of the University of Toronto, holding B.A., B.Ed., and M.A. degrees. He pursued postgraduate studies at the University of Waterloo and Webster College in Missouri in linguistics and education.
