A new poll by Nanos Research shows Canadians are evenly split on whether our border should be closed to those crossing from the U.S. seeking “asylum.”
37% want the border closed, 37% want the border to be open, and 26% say they are unsure.
The poll comes as the Trudeau government faces strong criticism for their border policy – particularly on Justin Trudeau’s reckless and irresponsible tweets and confused messaging on the issue.
It should be noted that this poll shows Canadians split on whether to allow those who cross from the U.S. and claim asylum, not whether they necessarily support illegal border crossings.
There is a big difference between legal and illegal crossings, and polls show Canadians view those issues differently. In fact, a previous poll showed 57% of Canadians disapproved of how Trudeau handled the illegal border crossing situation.
Different than the elitist spin
These poll numbers are quite interesting, as the even split in Canadian public opinion contrasts with the way the elitist establishment often frames the issue. The impression is often given that opposition to opening the borders is a position only held by a small proportion of Canadians, yet it is clear that many millions of Canadians clearly want to see our border toughened up.
Clearly, Canadians who support strengthening our border deserve to be represented in our government and in the media, instead of being attacked and demonized by Trudeau and the globalist elites who always put Canada’s interests last.
The elites want to hide their many failures behind political correctness, deception, and manipulation. We need to push back and spread the truth.
