Jewish population of Canada
« on: March 07, 2019, 04:18:13 pm »
There are nearly 400,000 Jews in Canada.  A small but significant amount. Canada now has arguably the third largest Jewish population in the World after the USA and Israel.  At one time France and Russia both had large Jewish populations, but most Jews left the former Soviet Union in the he 90s. France may have the 3rd highest Jewish population but there has been a big exodus from the country due to anti-Semitism.

Largest Jewish communities:

Toronto 185,000
Montreal 95,000
Vancouver 30,000
Winnipeg 14,000
Ottawa 13,000
Calgary 8,000
Edmonton 5,000
Hamilton 5,000

Hopefully Canada can attract more Jews in the coming years.

The same thing will happen to them here in Canada, as what's happening to them in France.  We have already shown that we will not stand up to Islamic extremists.

On the other hand, at least SOME people are waking up to realize that what's happening to Jews in Europe is REAL. 

Up til now, SOME have contended that there is no crisis for Jews in Europe and it is all just fake news, designed to make Islam look bad.

We need fewer Jews, not more.  We also need fewer Christians, Muslims and Sikhs too. 

Religion poisons everything.

Quote
https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2007/04/religion-poisons-everything.html

There are four irreducible objections to religious faith: that it wholly misrepresents the origins of man and the cosmos, that because of this original error it manages to combine the maximum of servility with the maximum of solipsism, that it is both the result and the cause of dangerous sexual repression, and that it is ultimately grounded on wish-thinking.

Extremism poisons everything whether it is motivated by god or ideology. Most religious people I know personally are a lot less attached to irrational dogma than your typical environmentalist.

TimG turns a topic to his anti-climate change conspiracy nonsense once again.   Thanks TimG.   ::)

You are the one who started whinging about religious people. Religion and environmentalism are exactly the same. If you can't see that it is because you lack self awareness. Calling me a "denier" because of my complex positions on climate change is no more rational than a Muslim calling me an infidel.

I haven't heard either version of this.  Do you have a cite ?

There is a slight difference actually; climate/environmental science is based on...wait for it...science. Religion? not so much.

Environmentalists use science as prop when it affirms their existing beliefs. An environmentalist will never change their opinion simply because scientific research says something else. Examples, include GMOs, organic farming, nuclear power, pesticides, and others. When an environmentalist encounters scientific research that refutes their beliefs they will ignore it or claim it is corporate/government conspiracy. When given a choice between expensive symbols and pragmatic solutions environmentalist most often choose the expensive symbols because it is not about reason or logic - it is about emotion and feeling.

IOW - environmentalism is indistinguishable from a religious belief system. But I don't expect people like you to understand anymore than I would expect a Christian to understand that Jesus was not real.

You seem confused, but we are getting into thread drift so I'll let you take it to the appropriate thread.

I tried to discuss this here and on the other site.  I provided many links to articles and quotes from books written on this very subject.  Each time I was shut down by people who said that what is going on in Europe is fake news and they poo-poo'ed every incident of anti-semitism in France that I cited.
