They are not blind or stupid. They know
about demographic winter.
But this is spiritual warfare, the work
of Satan. The enemy has been able to
convince people to selfishly think of
themselves, to consider children as
burdens who will deprive them of a so-called
life. Thus, even as it is clear that
the solution is to have higher birth
rates, these selfish people are just
not buying into it. If they did not
care to have children, or if they killed
their own children, why will they care
about the next generation? They just
want to enjoy life.
The ultimate goal of Satan is of course
to destroy what is of God -- family
and life, and ultimately whole nations.
Unfortunately for those in the Third
World, the First World wants to decimate
their populations as well. Part of the
reasons for this is economics. They
view huge poor populations as a threat
to their continuing use of the world's
resources. And of course, population
is power as well, and so security, or
rather colonial world domination, is

Now that the anti-life forces have almost
gotten abortion accepted as a universal

else can they solve the problem of an

Statistics Canada Predicts Seniors Will
Soon Outnumber Children

Canada has predicted that the
number of seniors will surpass the number
of children aged 14 or under for the
first time ever sometime between 2015
population projections for 2009 to 2036,
released by the federal agency yesterday,
say that Canada's
population will age rapidly until 2031,
by which time the entire baby boom generation
would have turned 65. Thereafter it
would continue aging, but at a less
show that seniors would account for
between 23% and 25% of the total population
by 2036, nearly double the 13.9% in
2009. Higher immigration levels would
do little to change the forthcoming
aging of the Canadian population,"
the report states.
the number of children aged 14 or under
for every 100 people in the working-age
population will increase marginally
from 24 in 2009 to 26 by 2036, seniors
aged 65 and over would rise from 20
to 39 for every 100 people of working

working-age population aged 15 to 64
would decline steadily from about 70%
to about 60%.

of the scenario, immigration levels
would represent a larger share of the
projected population growth at the national

immigrants consist of younger individuals

levels of immigration would also have
a positive impact on the number of births,"
the report explains.
fact that immigration is seen to play
a major role in Canada's growth highlights

consistent 1.5 birth rate, far below
the 2.1 replacement rate,
along with the accompanying aging of
the population, has lead to a number
of studies and government reports on
how to deal with the problem.
year, the C.D. Howe Institute, a Canadian
public policy think tank, issued a study
which argued that immigration alone
will not offset the effects of Canada's
increasing ratio of dependant elderly
to workers, but that higher fertility
was needed to combat the increasingly-aged
Canadian demographic trend.
to the study, "current fertility
and immigration rates, moderately rising
life expectancy, and historical productivity
increases can be expected to depress
workforce growth, boost the ratio
of Canadians 65 and over to those of
working age (the old-age dependency
ratio) and depress
growth in incomes per person."
"despite some popular commentary,"
the study states, "offsetting or
even noticeably mitigating these trends
through increased immigration alone
would require unrealistic increases
in total immigration levels."
this year, parliament released one of
the first official reports dealing with
the consequences of Canada’s long-term

the financial result of the declining
birth rate would be fiscally devastating.
Government’s current fiscal structure
is not sustainable over the long term,”
said the report. In
order to compensate for the low birth
rate the report said there must be very
substantial increases in taxation and
major cuts to government services, amounting
to $14 to 28 billion.
