12. Many thanks to our friends at Russia Today for pointing this out. Guilty as charged.

To provide some context, however:

(1) Period in question covers the last year-and-a-half of the Conservative Stephen Harper Government, and the first year-and-a-half of the Liberal Justin Trudeau administration. Our policies and priorities have changed somewhat, which may or may not be reflected in the data, which appears accurate (as far as it goes). We shall try to do better.

(2) To respond to Survivor's quite legitimate concerns, while it is true that during the ten years of the Harper Government, greater emphasis was placed upon economic migrants and the contribution they might make, Justin is cut more from the cloth of his father, the late Pierre Elliott Trudeau, who accepted 50,000 Vietnamese at the end of the war, the same number accepted by the entire United States during the same period. They have become among our most accomplished new Canadians, and a point of continual pride. Might I recommend the excellent fiction of author Kim Thuy of Montreal, for e.g.
