Poll suggests public support for immigration is divided

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau may want to claim that those raising concerns about Canada’s immigration system are fear mongering racists but Canadians aren’t buying it.

A new poll from Ipsos shows that while support for immigration overall is up, concerns about how the system is being run remain and stretch across party lines.

Keep in mind that Canadians often tell pollsters what they think they want to hear. “Diversity” and “multiculturalism” have been weaponized by the political class so that criticism of immigration policy is labeled bigotry. No poll on the issue is likely to be accurate under such conditions.
