Canada NewsWire is reporting that, according to the Maclean’s 19th Annual Year-End Poll,
44% of Canadians would restrict Canada’s intake of Muslim immigrants. This disturbing statistic was part of a summary of the poll findings, which also stated that
60% [of Canadians] would put refugee claimants arriving ‘without valid ID’ on the next plane back to where they came from. (I don’t know about you, but the first thing that I would do before fleeing death and state persecution is make sure that my ID is valid and up-to-date.) Lastly,
51% favour locking up refugee claimants in ‘secure locations’ until their cases are heard, emphasis mine.
Should we start building the internment camps now or simply hand out brightly-coloured armbands to Muslims and refugees?
