"Through the launch of this pilot program, we are attracting investors who can make a significant investment and who have the education and proven business or investment experience necessary to achieve success in Canada," Immigration Minister Chris Alexander said in a news release Tuesday.
So, the plan is this - reduce research opportunities, pillory education at home, but sell citizenship to wealthy potential immigrants who have picked up education abroad. And know how to find workaround to spend their money however they please.
If you're already a Canadian, you know, you gotta hustle. If you can't, too bad, so sad. We'll give your spot to someone who's made their money elsewhere, possibly off of saps like you.
That's bound to go over real well.
