Federal Immigration Minister Marc Miller defends the importance of newcomers to Canada on July 1. Justin Trudeau’s government faces a lot of criticism on immigration.

Conservative leader Pierre Poilievre has made immigration a hobby horse against Justin Trudeau.

In France, the National Rally (RN), a far-right party, came out on top in the first round of legislative elections.

Canadian Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Marc Miller says that “we need to have a societal debate perhaps [sur l’immigration]but with candor and respect for others.”

Minister Miller, who was attending a citizenship ceremony in Toronto on Monday as part of Canada Day, maintains that the country “needs” immigrants, whether for “labour” or to “rejuvenate” the population.

It’s not against immigration. There are many nuanced views on the impact of immigration. Canadians don’t want to have immigration that is just anything.

A quote from Marc Miller, Canadian Minister of Immigration

Canada is doing a better job than other countries in rejuvenating [la population grâce à l’immigration]he maintains.

In total, 1,400 people acquired Canadian citizenship on Monday during ceremonies across the country, said Minister Miller.
