1 in 4 Canadians want Trump-style travel ban, poll shows

A “significant segment” of Canadians say Canada’s 2017 refugee target of 40,000 is too high, while one in four Canadians wants the Liberal government to impose its own Trump-style travel ban.

Those are just two of the findings in a new Angus Reid Institute poll that looked at Canadian’s attitudes toward the federal government’s handling of refugees.

Overall, 47 per cent of Canadians surveyed said Canada is taking in the right number of refugees. But 11 per cent say 40,000 is too low and Canada should take in more, while 41 per cent say the 2017 target is too high and that we should not be taking in anymore refugees.

This poll was conducted among members of the Angus Reid forum and spoke of refugees only in the generic sense.

    Meanwhile in Europe, where the locals have gotten a crash course in muslim diversity, a recent poll across 10 countries found 55% want islamic immigration to end. Getting acquainted has been educational, it appears.

      Not Sweden though – the moral superpower will remain virtuous and moral right to the ugly (and it will be ugly) end.

        More like Superpower of Stupid.

    • That is the inevitable result.

      I wager that the real percentage of those agreeing was 80%, because 25% did not answer due to fear of the state. I also wager that a good portion of the 20% who disagreed were Muslims with balance being the extreme Left.

    Discouraging numbers. It looks like Canada will follow countries like Sweden and France down the path to Islamic third world nationhood. There are pockets of common sense and resistance, of course – rural areas, much of the West – but also places that are so progressive it is hard to see how they will ever find their way back. Toronto, for instance, *will* become Malmo; it’s only a matter of time now.

      Fight for Quebec separation. Badger, harass, insult ridicule & taunt Quebecers until they vote PQ and ultimately for for separation. Then the useless, freeloading bastards can import immigrants as much as they want.

        As far as Toronto goes? Beats me. I agree with you. It’s a lost cause, probably always has been.

        All future refugees should be unceremoniously dumped into Quebec.
        Let them enjoy all that ‘diversity’ for a while.

    • I am not sure I would trust this poll.

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        Fake polls are a huge part of fake news that is used to shape oppinion.

        • Yup, and Canadian pollsters lovs them their Gubment mony.

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            Just where in hell did a government sponsored press come from?
            It seems the surest recipe for corruption and tyranny.

            In Canada they are the PR branch of the Liberal Party.

  • By the time there’s a majority it will be too late.

  • I wonder what percentage of native born Canadians think Canada needs more refugees.

    lot of work to do

    I wonder how many of those RCMP officers shown welcoming those illegals secretly want to be putting the run on them instead…

  • I’d like to know where the polls are being conducted. I’ve never been asked.
