And yet, we don't see any particular improvement in our standard of living from when we only had 25 million, or even 20 million people, aside from the advances of technology. As for those 'wide open spaces', more than 90% of us live in a thin strip of land along the US border. Nobody is coming to Canada to go live on the Arctic tundra. They're going to Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal.

We will certainly see a degradation in our standard of living if we are all sitting around collecting OAP with nobody working. It's pretty simple to get your head around, if we aren't having babies then we need immigration. Our natural population growth is forecast to drop to 0 by 2033, not that long away eh. Keep in mind also that the composition of our immigration policy includes 60% economic class.
