Liberal government ‘testing the limits’ of Canadians’ attitudes to refugees: poll

In this photo the RCMP is shown smuggling illegal alien invaders into Canada from the United States.

A majority of Canadians generally approve of the Liberal government’s approach to refugees, but Ottawa may be “testing the limits” of how many migrants they are willing to accept, a new poll shows.

While 47 per cent of respondents believe Canada is taking in “about the right number” of refugees, 41 per cent said the number is “already too high,” according to the survey by the non-profit Angus Reid Institute. Eleven per cent said they’d like to see Canada open its doors to even more refugees.

    I call bullshit on those polls.

    I’ve done dozens of AR polls and they know whom to poll for a pre established outcome.

    They are fully aware of your ideology and beliefs prior to sending them out.

    • I do not trust a poll pulled from Angus Reid’s “forum”.

        Its their on line polsters. I used to do them but after 4 poles they told me they no longer needed my services. They used to offer 10 cents a pole you filled out.

      I was going to mention something along the same lines. I have never been called by AR for a poll of any kind. I guess if you pick the area you poll quite carefully, you get the results you want.

    So let me get this straight. Ordinary Canadian taxpayers have to go through all sorts of shit to cross the border, but the families of Somali war lords can simply walk across the border and get all sorts of free stuff. What’s wrong with this picture. And where are these Somalis getting the money to travel to Mexico, then travel across the USA, and then pay to cross the border. From my military experienced in Somalia, the only people with money are the people you don’t want here.

    I’m confused. CTV News Network briefly mentioned this morning, that riots broke out in a Swedish city last night by muslim refugees, after police tried to arrest a refugee drug dealer. But the Toronto Star and CNN report this morning, that everything is wonderful in the socialist paradise of Sweden.

    I think there is in fighting between JT and the muslim wing of the party you have the pm who openly says all are welcome but the muslim wing only want muslims.

  • Exile1981

    I take it 11% of respondents are muslim.

    Liberals don’t care about the attitudes of Canadian.

    They figure they can alway change those attitudes with media manipulation, and if that doesn’t work they can always bring in new voters who will support them against the Canadians.

      Seems to me that the elites would rather invent law to imprison Truthful Canadians

  • Uncommunist

    Interpretation : Elites are 100 % in favor of illegal immigration, 95 % of regular Canadians are against it. Elite Conclusion, 95 % of Canadians are in favor of more illegal immigration.

    If the Liberal government is so desirous of these people, they should commit themselves and their families to hosting these “refugees” in their own homes.
