POLL: Majority Of Canadians Say Canada Is ‘Too Welcoming To Immigrants’

When it comes to immigration, the political establishment is ignoring the will of the Canadian People.

An Ipsos survey conducted for Global News reveals that the majority of Canadians are rejecting the open borders immigration policies of the Trudeau government.

The survey shows 54% saying “Canada is too welcoming to immigrants.”

These numbers are no surprise.

Under the Harper government, Canada already had some of the highest per-capita immigration numbers in the world. For example, Canada was bringing in about 250,000 newcomers every year, about 1/4th of the number of immigrants to the United States, despite the U.S. being nearly 10 times bigger in population.

Without consulting Canadians, and despite all the polls showing opposition to more immigration, Justin Trudeau has massively increased immigration numbers. He’s bringing the yearly total to 360,000 per year, even though less than 10% of Canadians have said they want more immigration.

And that number doesn’t even include the massive spike in illegal border crossers, something the Trudeau government basically encouraged on social media, and then did nothing to stop.

Additionally, 40% of poll respondents say that an increase in immigration could hurt the chances of Canadian Citizens seeking work. While the political establishment always dismisses those concerns, the concerns actually have a basis in reality. While a reasonable level of immigration can benefit an economy, massive immigration spikes have the effect of reducing the bargaining power of individual workers, as there are more people competing for fewer jobs – especially as our economy slows.

What we’re seeing is simply common sense: When a government ignores what the Citizens think about immigration numbers, and when the border is treated like a joke, there will be increased opposition to immigration.

Canada has a Rogue Gov’t in power with no acceptable way to remove it and we are being played for fools by those that have no fear of any legal repercussions… What can our Citizens do now that this is obviously a problem? Protests don’t seem to work and the resources of the State are being used against us in a subversive manner while the Mainstream Media refuses to report The Truth of the matter – things can only get progressively worse if a change in Gov’t isn’t in the cards (as Trudeau&Co are manipulating things in their favour). We… Read more »

Not exactly sure why. Does Trudeau want more votes? Does he purposefully wish to make Canadians poorer? What is the reasoning behind this? Enjoy your posts, Spencer. Keep up the good work of giving us REAL news, instead of the msm and their falsehoods over and over again.

Trudeau would rather blindly follow his own personal beliefs and agenda to prove himself a worthy elite globalist, who cares more for what is going outside of Canada than the needs and concerns off all Canadians. Everyone must see Trudeau for who he really is, aside from all the fake virtuousness and deceitful caring and bitter sweet words he likes to throw around to gain people’s confidence; he is an extreme left wing socialist with a very strong need to conform towards being a communist. Don’t be fooled, socialism is the tip of the spear used by communists to undermine… Read more »

Hussen is allowing 360,ooo legal immigrants each year, an increase of 44%.

PLUS they are allowing in excess of 50,000 illegal immigrants to enter Canada annually.
