Canadians not so ‘exceptional’ when it comes to immigration

February 7, 2017

A new study authored by Michael Donnelly, a political science professor at the University of Toronto has found that while attitudes among Canadians towards refugees and immigrants range largely from positive to benign, those views are not necessarily strongly held. The study, a project of the McGill Institute for the Study of Canada (MISC), also concludes that, as a result, there is potential for intolerant, anti-immigrant, and anti-refugee sentiment to increase. The full study, entitled Canadian Exceptionalism: Are We Good Or Are We Lucky? is available at the end of this National Post article.
