  1. According to TD Economics, Chinese, Indian immigration to Canada is slowing, China and India used to be the top two source countries. Now, China and India are second and third as source countries. It's mainly because skilled Chinese and Indian immigrants have difficulty finding suitable jobs here while Chinese and Indian economies are booming.

    The opening lines allude to the iconic image in one of the most popular TV series, Lost.
