Another public opinion poll shows that Canadians have had enough of mass immigration. A Nanos poll from last week shows that a majority in Canada are concerned that the current immigration targets set by the federal government will impact the housing shortage. Go figure! Last year, a Leger poll found the same results.

Despite this, Canada’s new immigration minister told journalists last week that Canada would continue to bring in record numbers of immigrants and even perhaps increase annual government targets. Food banks are filling up with immigrants, housing shelters are filling up with asylum seekers and Canadians can no longer afford to live in the cities they grew up in. Even worse, provinces are now asking Canadians to explore home sharing options to solve the shortage.

If you’re looking for an opposition to these sky-high immigration targets, don’t go to the Conservatives. Pierre Poilievre continues to dodge questions about his immigration plan and whether he would stick to Trudeau’s 500,000-per-year number.
