Douglas Todd: Three million people snap up Canada’s 10-year visas

According to Vancouver Sun,

The sink-hole effect exerts intense pressure on housing and rental costs, transit, higher education, traffic congestion, noise and social services in large cities.

While big cities grow because of migration, the opposite is happening to small cities, such as Quesnel, B.C., St. John’s, New Brunswick and Timmins, Ontario.
