Happy to explain. You tried to refute Lainie's statement that "there's no shortage of people who look him all around him" with the statement that there are significant numbers of immigrants in Ontario, and that "27% of the city of Ottawa is a self reported visible minority." But since Lainie wasn't claiming that everyone in Ontario looked like him, but only that there is "no shortage" of such people, it fails as a refutation. Or, as I put it a few moments ago, "No shortage of people who look like you ! = everyone looks like you."
