A new study conducted by University of Toronto political scientist Michael J. Donnelly for the McGill Institute for the Study of Canada, shows that we are neither more nor less tolerant toward immigrants and refugees than other western countries.
Donnelly’s survey of 1,522 Canadians, carried out in January by Ipsos, places us consistently in the middle of pack when asked about our attitudes toward immigrants and refugees. Canadians, concludes Donnelly, “are not unusually pro-immigration when compared to Europeans.”
But if a poll were to be taken on the views of Canadian politicians, the findings would show extreme tolerance for immigration, diversity and multiculturalism. – CINEWS
