Kenney can't stop tinkering with economic immigration

Immigration Minister Jason Kenney can't stop tinkering with economic immigration programs. On September 11, he announced yet another class of immigration he wants to add to his complicated bag of tricks. This time, the proposal is called the "Startup Visa" and it is aimed at luring venture capitalists in Canada to recruit talent from countries like the U.S. to start their firms in Canada. Venture investment funds would choose entrepreneurs in whom they would invest, and the government would try to clear them for entry into Canada within weeks.

Proof again that under the Harper Government and Minister's Kenney's leadership, immigration to Canada is going up for sale. His limited view of immigration as a purely internal economic facilitator is out of touch with the broad range of motivations immigrants choose Canada for in the first place, and of the overall impact immigrants have to the cultural, political and social fabric of our nation.

Like all Harper programs, they've announced it before they've figured it all out, and the devil is in details they have so far shown themselves unable to manage.
