POLL: Far More Canadians Want “Less Welcoming” Approach To Illegal Border Crossers

Supporters of tougher approach outnumber those who want weaker approach by over 3 to 1.

A new poll shows far more Canadians want a “less welcoming” approach to illegal border crossers than want a “more welcoming approach.”

According to the Nanos Research poll, 43% of Canadians say Canada should be “less welcoming” to illegal border crossers, while just 14% want Canada to be “more welcoming.” 36% say Canada should “continue its current approach.”

The survey also asked Canadians their thoughts on accepting Rohingya refugees. 37% said they “support” accepting refugees, while 25% say they “somewhat support” it. 14% “somewhat oppose,” while 18% “oppose.”

Back to the border issue, there is also concern with the lack of security presence at the border, with a full 57% of Canadians saying there is not enough law enforcement presence at the border. Just 29% say there is the right amount of law enforcement presence at the border. A paltry 2% say there is too much law enforcement presence at the border.

Canadians want our border secured

The poll results on the border questions make it quite clear that Canadians want our border to be secured, and are losing patience with the weak approach of the Trudeau government that has cost our country hundreds of millions of dollars in social services costs and burdens upon our taxpaying citizens.

And yet, the Trudeau government keeps ignoring what people want, and have continued an approach of total weakness. They have created incentives for people to cross illegally, which ends up punishing taxpayers and punishing everyone seeking to come to Canada the legal way.

Canadians are a welcoming people, but that welcome needs to be on our own terms, not with people disrespecting our border by entering our country illegally.

Only the people displaced by war deserve to be dealt with as a special case. Following WW2 we called them displaced persons (DP’s). It was not a derogatory term, it is what they were. All others follow the rules. No borders, no country. One has to recognize promulgated chaos when they see it.


I can not believe people really support this, Canadian citizens who support this should put their own money in to pay for it all, not our tax dollars, that are already being wildly abused and misspent. Legal immigration should be ok if someone wants to sponsor and support them, but until we get out of all this debt and corruption and un truths about how “great” this country was, ( cause we’re losing that pretty fast ) getting decent jobs for Canadians and putting a roof over all Canadian heads, looking after our police and military, fixing our legal system,… Read more »

Absolutely correct, Nancyw, but the real reason is that, as did ‘daddy,’ he is doing it only to ensure an extraordinarily large voting bloc — particularly since he has also indicated people can vote whether the are citizens of Canada or not. Notwithstanding the idiocy behind this and the skullduggery associated therewith, it is, according to the dictionaries, nothing less than ‘treason,’ which, under the C.C.C. is an indictable offence.

So, that begs the question: Where are those lawyers with principles? And the question also applies to those in the judiciary — at all levels


There are Illegals crossing into Canada with false papers, false identities, false school records. There are dangerous offenders being let lose on the streets and Trudeau won’t do anything about it. Why would anyone wait in line by applying legally to get into Canada? All they need do is walk across the border and say to hell with waiting 5 years.


These illegals can afford to travel all the way to the US then a taxi or bus to illegally cross the border, therefore they have enough money to pay their living costs for two or three years until their hearing. We hear the wait list is about two years. This should include legal costs and lawyer fees. No free room & board. They planned and saved for the trip here, so they can damn well pay to live here. If they can’t afford to stay at an internment camp they must be sent back across the American border or sent… Read more »

There was a time when a government having a majority was willing to listen to what the people had to say, but not the Trudeau regime which functions like a dictatorship.

Take notice of ‘stop’ sign in the background of above photo. The gov’t has 50 million to give to Quebec, Ontario, & Manitoba to help with the influx of illegal border crossers, however, it appears there is NO money to invest in HUGE new signs with the word ‘STOP’ in English, French, and other appropriate languages. Guess it really doesn’t matter if they can read the signs when there are RCMP & Border Security Agent valets helping carry suitcases and escorting folks to their FREE Canadian permanent vacation accommodations & perks.


ISIS terrorist are moving freely in canada

Spencer, you must read this heart wrenching story about a yazidi woman raped and brutalized by isis, encounters him on a bus in toronto. I cant imagine her fear coming to canada to feel safe, to find her attacker on the bus.
Please Spencer, canadians need to know this.
