Flying the flag in 6th place

Hmmm, little bit of worrying news in the Toronto Star today:

“Canada has dropped out of the top five nations when it comes to integrating immigrants, due to policy changes by Ottawa that restrict family reunification and citizenship.

“According to the latest world ranking by a Brussels-based think tank, Canada has slipped from third to sixth place among 38 developed countries in providing migrants access to equal rights, support and opportunity.”

Full story. (Some of the comments are very telling.)

Thoughts, anyone?
