They misunderstood the question.  They thought it was Americans illegally crossing the border.

In our defence, we have morons, too.

FTA: When asked specifically about the recent border crossings from the United States, the same number - 48 percent - said Canada should "send these migrants back to the U.S." Another 36 percent said Canada should "accept these migrants" and let them seek refugee status.

Disappointing but not entirely unexpected considering the fear mongering that's been done.

Count me in among that 36% who also supports Trudeau's initiatives in this regard.

Yep we have a small sub-culture of xenophobes just like everywhere else, fortunately we have laws against them trying to get all uppity.

Harper was made of Santorum. Why do you think we overwhelmingly voted him out?  The stench was starting to creep beyond Ontario's borders.  I took months to air out the province.

They try, but they can't seem to get the conjugation right, keep spray painting what translates as "People called Muslims, they go to the house."

It's very tough to immigrate to Canada.... way tougher than immigrating to America.

I've always contended that Canada is a fascist hell-scape of frozen tundra and flesh eating cannibals intent on the destruction of all things good and moral. I can add this example to my list.

Seriously.  One DUI, no entry. Hubs had to get DMV to finally scrub his record for his job, which HQ is based in Canada.  Me, I've never had a DUI, yet I'm the drunk....

I think he means as an American from the states.  For most other countries, espcially war torn countries it is a breeze.  For those from the states?  LOL forget it.  Come visit, but you are not staying.  Citizenship requirements are pretty damn tight to get into Canada, I am about 100 grand short myself.

Heck, it's hard to visit Canada. I've crossed dozens of national borders, and only going into Canada have I been interrogated and had my car searched. Twice.

The Mrs and I thought about getting married in Canada during a visit to my daughter who was living in Brampton at the time... it was both our second marriages.....   forget about it!   Since we were divorced, we were told we had to hire a Canadian lawyer, pay a lot of fees and have a 30 day waiting period.. even though we had our divorce papers in order.   So, we ended up staying in Canada, running back across the border to get married at the brink (NY State has a 24 hour waiting period) and head back into Canada to finish our visit with our daughter and boyfriend.  We got searched a couple times.

We were thinking about heading back up to Niagara on the Lake for our 10th anniversary next year.. but Trumps immigration nightmare has caused us to think otherwise... maybe an Alaskan cruise instead.

There is only 1 developed country with yahoos out there saying "bring everyone it!"

2017-03-20 04:47:12 PM  
Send them back to the US?  It's the quick and easy answer but I don't believe it's the correct one.

Let them seek refugee status.  If they're not refugees then back home they go.

2017-03-20 04:54:57 PM  
We have our own RW media scaremongerers up here too.  Read the National Post sometime.  Yikes.

That being said we have treaties and UN agreements to do with refugees, it's illegal to deny legitimate refugee claimants.

A lot of these people don't want to stay forever.  Once their country's problems get better, they'll want to go back home.  Wouldn't you?
 
2017-03-20 04:55:53 PM  
Let them stay.  We do not want to be lumped in with the USA, the new leader of the Axis.  That is a fate worse than death.

Almost half is a small "sub culture"?

Its funny how people's opinions change when they are forced to directly deal with every part of a progressive ideology.

How can anyone in Canada possibly support illegal immigration? If Canada bordered Mexico there would be little difference to what the US does.

It's a little easier to get into the US if you are working.
http://www.canadavisa.com/necessary-income-levels-for-family-sponsors​h​ip.html
https://www.uscis.gov/green-card/green-card-processes-and-procedures/​a​ffidavit-support

The US income requirement is about 2/3rds of the Canadian requirement.

It's considerably easier to buy your way into the US.

https://www.uscis.gov/green-card/green-card-through-job/green-card-th​r​ough-investment

Canada requires a $10M CAD net worth. The US requires a $500k-1M investment.

15% of Canada's population in 1800 was Loyalist refugees from the United States.

Most of these people never returned to the US.
 
2017-03-20 05:39:25 PM  
As I pointed out to a friend of mine the other day, if you're wondering whether or not it might ever actually come to that by the time you would be ready to pull the trigger on emigrating somewhere they will no longer be accepting refugees from America.

Great Odins Raven: Almost half is a small "sub culture"?


This text is now purple: 48% is a large "small sub-culture".


Now boys you have to keep in mind:  This is 48% of the people who would take a half hour out of their day to give their opinion about them immgrints to a random stranger asking about it.  Having long ago worked for a company similar to Ipsos I got a first hand taste of the sort that'd participate in this polls.

Skew to one side, its definitely there.

Yeah well you can fly across an ocean now for a few hundred bucks instead of dodging bears and natives.

we need open migration for the next two years, conservative in North America can move to the US, and Liberals can move to Canada.  Canada gets the west cost, and USA can absorb Quebec.
 
2017-03-20 08:26:07 PM  
Meh, never had a problem crossing into Canada or back for that matter. Never even got searched despite declaring firearms. Although dad only brought two of required triplicate copies of paperwork. The officer said, "sorry, put all your change in this [donation jar for a kid with cancer] while we burn another copy for you." Again, never looked at the firearms or in the vehicle....

Once when I was crossing Quebec/Vermont they asked me to open my glove box.
