NEW POLL SUGGESTS CANADIANS 'AT THEIR LIMIT' FOR REFUGEES

A new poll that was released over the weekend, shows that 4 in 10 Canadians think we’ve already allowed too many refugees into this country.
The Angus Reid Poll suggests that a majority of Canadians agree with the Federal Liberal approach to immigration but that Ottawa might be testing the limits of how many migrants they are willing to accept.
47 percent of Canadians think we are taking in the ‘right number of refugees’ and nearly 6 in 10 of those polled think the Liberals are doing a good job of handling the immigration file.
But nearly a quarter of those polled said that Canada should have adopted a temporary immigration ban..similar to that of the US.
Since November of 2015 more than 40,000 Syrian refugees have resettled in more than 350 Canadian communities.
