Canadians overwhelming support a values test

Three-quarters of Canadians support testing new immigrants to Canada for “anti-Canadian” values, a new poll commissioned by the French-language division of CBC reveals.

While the questions did not specifically mention Conservative leadership candidate Kellie Leitch, her pitch clearly resonates with a majority of Canadians. This is consistent with previous poll data showing a majority of Canadians from across the political spectrum support her controversial idea.

The poll also reveals a quarter of Canadians would support a ban on Muslim immigration to Canada, similar to the temporary ban on arrivals from six Muslim majority countries signed by President Donald Trump. That number rises to a third in Quebec.

    25% of Canadians support a ban on muslim immigration while 60% support bringing in Syrian refugees. The over-under on how long it takes for those numbers to reverse? 12 months? Over 70% of Canadians oppose M103. If the motion passes, look for ‘islamorealism’ to break out big time in response, and for the over-under to shorten. Calling Canadians RACIST because they don’t like TOTALITARIANISM is a stupid idea.

    • That 25% is low.

        Exactly. Call it the Trump-Brexit effect.

    Its a good thing the political and media elites are firmly in charge. Canadian peasants don’t know whats good for them.

    75 % of Canadians support screening for Canadian Values – CBC headline = “Canadians divided when it comes to immigration, poll suggests”
    LPC gets 39% of vote – CBC headline – “Justin Trudeau’s Liberals won a decisive majority government”

    PM Shithead is just the latest in a long line of PMs that are more concerned about people outside of Canada than Canadians. Harper and his minions were all about increasing the TFW program and even talking about pathways to citizenship when Canadians were being shut out of the workforce. Previous Liberal governments built and increased the TFW program. Look at the foreign aid budget yet we don’t have money for Canadians in need. Yeah PM Shithead is a globalist that doesn’t care about Canadians but he is definitely not the first.

    I call bullsht! If Canadians supported a “values test”, then why did they vote for this moron leading this government whose campaign was loaded with no values whatsoever?
