Rudd's gang-busters immigration program

Columnist Paul Sheehan asks the question:

Could someone point out to me where, in last year's election campaign, Kevin Rudd or his Labor cohorts announced they were going to commit Australia to a gang-busters immigration program?

Where was Labor's policy announcement that Australia, with its stressed bread basket living from winter rain to winter rain, was going to increase its population by 1 million people during the three-year term of a Rudd government? I can't find it.

Nor can I.

Perhaps Chairman Rudd and Chris Evans would like to explain why they believe Australia needs to be running the largest per capita immigration program in the world. I certainly haven't heard any rational justification for these massive levels of immigration.
