B.C.'s population passes 5 million

The population of British Columbia has passed the five million mark for the first time, according to a Statistics Canada estimation.

The report says international migration is to thank for the spike — as it is in every province that saw a population increase.
Canada's population was approximately 37.2 million on Oct. 1, up 184,000 from July 1. This was the largest population increase in number since 1971.

When things are so expensive that 85.6% of your population growth is due to immigration...

Domestic Canadians can't even keep up with our own death rate.

Instead of fixing the problem they just bring in more warm bodies perfectly happy to work for nothing.

BC is a nice province and the price should be too much for more people but clearly the trade off is somehow worth it for them.
