Results show the widening gap between the views of politicians, and the citizens they are supposed to represent.
A new poll by SOM-Cogeco shows that a majority of Quebecers want illegal migrants turned back at the Canada-U.S. border.
51% want migrants to be stopped from entering Canada, while 37% want migrants to be allowed into the country.
Additionally, 56% of poll respondents opposed giving priority to those who bypassed the legal immigration system.
39% of respondents say a large increase in the number of migrants will make the province less safe.
Opposition to sanctuary city
The poll showed a clear majority opposing Montreal’s status as a so-called “sanctuary city.” 63% are opposed, with just 31% in favour.
The overall results of this poll shows how out-of-touch many politicians have become. The elitist consensus on allowing Canada’s borders to be disrespected is clearly not shared by the majority of Quebec residents, and ignoring our laws in “sanctuary cities” is overwhelmingly unpopular.
As I’ve said many times, Canada is and should be a welcoming nation. Of course, that welcome must be on our own terms. There are many people from all over the world who are waiting to enter our country, and are doing so in the right way – following the legal system and respecting our laws.
It is unfair to them, and unfair to Canadian citizens when those who cut in line are given priority and divert taxpayer-funded resources – slowing down the applications of those who applied the right way.
It’s time for those in power to stop preening for the global media, and start truly representing the views of citizens who expect our laws and borders to be respected.
The elites want to hide their many failures behind political correctness, deception, and manipulation. We need to push back and spread the truth.
That’s why I write.
