Wild Card's description
It is a massive shift in the profile of the population – both age and origin – away from traditional patterns. It could be in any number of directions, but render traditional European populations minorities. That would cause some anxiety perhaps in the population and might be a bit of wild card in terms of culture and values. Right now it represents a considerable challenge in how to anticipate the development of the multicultural realities of modern Europe. In Canada, we have been actively thinking about this and accommodating our minorities better. But from the example of France and Paris in the past five years, with the riots and so on, if that happened more prevalently through Europe it would be a major dislocation.
