More good news from Canada. It looks like Tomasz Winnicki started a trend. Now longtime Canadian White civil rights activist Paul Fromm has announced his intention to run for mayor of Mississauga, Ontario. The Mississauga News has picked up the story, saying that Mr. Fromm is the 14th candidate seeking to become mayor of Mississauga in the October 25th municipal election. The story has also been posted on American Renaissance.
I've now discovered a dedicated Topix forum to this story. Registration not required to post. I've kicked off the discussion; additional pro-White input would be useful.
For those who are not familiar, Mississauga lies along the north shore of Lake Ontario in the Peel Region of the province of Ontario just about five miles southwest of Toronto. According to Wikipedia, it is Canada's sixth largest city with a population of 729,000. Predominant races are White (49.8%), South Asian (21.6%), Chinese (6.9%), and Black (6.2%). Since South Asians are not considered indigenous to Canada, this implies Mississauga has been inundated with mass immigration, perhaps the primary reason why the city's population has increased by 150,000 over the previous decade and doubled during the past twenty years.
Such explosive growth, fueled by an influx of outsiders of a different race with significantly contrasting values, can have a destabilizing effect. This explains why immigration is at the top of Mr. Fromm's concerns. He posted a copy of his press release on Stormfront Canada (after the jump):
For Immediate Release
Paul Fromm to Run for Mayor of Mississauga
September 8, 2010
PORT CREDIT. Nightly radio broadcaster and immigration expert Paul Fromm filed nomination papers for Mayor of Mississauga this afternoon.
“Immigration is the issue,” Fromm declared. “It’s the two ton elephant in the room that the municipal politicians don’t want to discuss. They just want to babble about the supposed benefits of ‘diversity.’”
“Immigration impacts almost every major problem in Mississauga – overcrowded roads, dwindling farm land, the environment, welfare costs. If I’m elected, I’ll camp out on the Minister of Immigration’s front lawn and demand action,” said Fromm.
Ontario projections have Peel Region growing from 1.258-million in 2008 to 1.543-million in 2016. “Will the roads be any less congested? Will welfare costs be lower? Will the environment be safer with nearly another 300,000 in Peel? “asks Fromm. “Not likely.”
“Mississauga is full,” Fromm declares. “It’s more than doubled in size since I moved here in 1980,” says the Port Credit resident, who is in demand as a lecturer on immigration in Canada, the U.S., and Australia.
“According to Statistics Canada, the unemployment rate in July was 8.5% in Ontario. We don’t have enough jobs for our own people. We need a five year moratorium on immigration intake. No reflection on the present immigrant population, but we need a breather,” Fromm adds.
According to the Mississauga Planning and Building Department, Mississauga is the city with the third largest immigrant population in Canada. “From 2001 to 2006, immigrant population growth exceeded total population growth in Mississauga", according to Fromm.
Paul Fromm is a graduate of the University of Toronto, holding B.A., B.Ed., and M.A. degrees. He pursued postgraduate studies at the University of Waterloo and Webster College in Missouri in linguistics and education. He is a retired English instructor and also is a director of the Council of Conservative Citizens. In the past year, he has lectured on immigration reform to audiences in 28 cities in seven Canadian provinces and 10 U.S. states.
Mr. Fromm does not address whether Canadian law permits foreigners to contribute directly to his political campaign. He does advise that donations to support the ongoing separate campaign against the Tamil Tiger invasion and to make immigration an issue, though not specifically to Mr. Fromm's campaign, can be sent to CFIRC, P.O. Box 332, Rexdale, ON., M9W 5L3, CANADA.

According to the Mississauga News, Mr. Fromm has been the victim of political correctness. He was fired from his job teaching English at Applewood Heights Secondary School in 1997 after he ignored warnings from administrators not to continue associating with race realists and White nationalists. The B'Nai Brith and other organizations had complained about his conduct at a series of right-wing political rallies.
The board removed Mr. Fromm from the classroom after 19 years on the job and asked him to teach adult students. He was warned not to continue his political activities, then was fired when he attended a memorial service for renowned American White nationalist Revilo Oliver. A lengthy arbitration process followed and Mr. Fromm's firing was eventually upheld. Mr. Fromm's teaching licence was revoked by the Ontario College of Teachers in November 2007. Fromm lost his appeal to have the Supreme Court review his case last year.
Paul Fromm is also the director of the Canadian Association for Free Expression (CAFE) and the Canada First Immigration Reform Committee (CFIRC). You can also read all previous posts about Paul Fromm HERE to get a snapshot of his activism, and the price he's paid for it.
