Immigration, elites and the disconnect: “Silent majority” speak up in recent polls

Brian LilleyRebel Co-Founder Brian Lilley
 

Since last summer, you’ve been hearing that Kellie Leitch is controversial, a racist, a xenophobe because of her proposal to screen immigrants and refugees for anti-Canadian values.

Leitch and her supporters have been denounced in every corner of the media, and they’ve been called divisive.

Turns out if that’s true then an awful lot of Canadians are united around what the media and political elites consider awful instead of down right normal.

If her proposal and her supporters are all racists then it seems the majority of the country are racists, which of course is not true. So how can I say this?

Watch as I share the results of new polls, one completed by a stalwart of the industry, that helps put this all into perspective. This is the silent majority.

Politicians and most media types have run away from her idea screaming racist and saying anyone that backs it is racist but clearly, this isn’t the case especially when we see support crosses through all political parties.

Generally, Canadians have positive views of welcoming people and a multitude of cultures filling the land but that doesn’t mean they want the country to change.

They want what has happened for generations to keep happening, and that is, for immigrants to change more than the country does.

As for how much immigration there should be, most are worried that the rates are too high and will change the country forever. They also worry particularly about the integration of Muslims, with some even saying they agree with a ban.

But these poll results don’t show a racist Canada to me. Racists do exist in this and every other country and in every culture, but it’s not the sole purview of white people.

What they show is an open and welcoming country that wants to ensure those that come, come for Canada, for our values, our way of life, our customs and culture - things that have made Canada great and a beacon to the oppressed.

It does no good for someone who wants to escape Karachi or Mogadishu to then turn around and change Canada to be more like those places - they left that life for good reason.

The polls show while Canada remains open, we want to protect our borders, our culture and despite what our prime minister says, we have one.

Canadians know it, the whole world knows it and if the political and media elite would listen to the great unwashed instead of drinking each other’s bath water, maybe we could get something done.

If " Diversity is our strength" , why didn’t PM Trudope not reflect that in his Cabinet ?

“If you have to vet immigrants for anti-canadian values would it not be more expedient and sensible to not allow people of certain groups who hold those values to immigrate? Cut to the chase.”

It was that way BEFORE Pierre Trudeau and his Liberal Party.

Karan Singh, thank you for sharing your perspective. Wanting what’s best for Canada makes you a real Canadian, and our nation is better for it. Keep speaking your truth.

karan I have read lots of your comments, you are old stock, you want whats best for Canada nothing wrong with that.

Even though I don’t come from the old-stock real Canadian background still since almost a decade ago I noticed my adopted country was heading towards wrong direction, it has taken the path to self-destruction by accepting multiculturalism & mass immigration from third world countries. I was ridiculed by many white Canadians & most of ‘indo-canadians’ for my views.
Mass immigration from any non-compatible cultures. There are many more than from just muslims, while most of them on the surface look well integrated & westernized but talk to any east-indian, chinese, filipino or african all would say there culture & values are far superior than white Canadians. The hatred for whites in general, though not as obvious as shown by muslims, is ingrained in their hearts & minds. Ask them what they think about Canadian culture & heritage & its long established values then you’ll get an idea of their compatibility to Canadian values.
Deborah, like you its been 10 years since I have stopped giving my business to any store who does not support Canadians.

Your suggestions are ineffective and expensive. The best way to deal with the threat that Islam poses to our way of life is to ban all Muslim immigration. No one is forced to adhere to an ideology that is incompatible with our way of life, so my suggestion is fair and practical.

Just look at all the food chains and supermarkets now, all you see is minorities. I try to patronize places that have fair hiring practices. I never go to Tim’s anymore, or any of the major burger joints. We are certainly being set up to be taken over. Civil war is coming to Canada, and it will be much sooner than you think.

Ron Voss, Hopefully, you receive a response from the Rebel Team.

That questionnaire is so stupid. Do politicians really think that thing is going to stop terrorism? The terrorists will just lie on the questionnaire.

Here is a better idea. Let the immigrants know that if they pull anything that hurts Canadians, that they will be immediately deported.

If somebody wants segregated swimming for the sake of Islam? Deport them.

If somebody says no pig meat because of Islam? Deport them.

If somebody refuses to let you draw Mohammed because of Islam? Deport them.

It is too bad the conservative politicans are so chicken shit.

Well said. And I have talked to so many who tell me they have kids in their family who cannot get what used to be a “students after school job” because the migrants/refugees are filling these jobs that they were once able to get. At one time our nation’s children wouldn’t have to look for long to find a job at a fast food franchise, not today. Go in any Tim Horton’s and you will see that it is the new people working there when there aren’t even jobs for the people who are here. Our youth at one time were able to learn some saving skills to put money towards university or a car, but today it’s a whole different story. Also the government is subsidizing the immigrant’s wages, or they were, so it’s not really a fair playing field.

Brian Lilley—-Thanks for the poll results; We in the centre and the right don’t get much cheerful news these days.
If the West separates , we will give you and your family a " Get in for Free Card."

Mark Chadwick—-I’m told that Britain no longer has Fire Insurance for expensive vehicles that get torched by refugees. It is now considered Terrorism, therefore no Insurance.

Bravo Zulu right on.They want them to integrate into Gontario,But then designate a whole apartment building to muslim only.Really trying to help,Help who.And now they want to wear their head scarfs at work in EU.But was shot down and told no political or religious symbols should be worn and that’s not good enough for all these takers.

Should have restriction on how many children as well.We were just lectured by Mr fruit fly him self for climate change population.And where are some numbers for the cost of the free ride immigrants.You remember the lovin with the sunny ways Liberals?
And I wonder how much greenhouse gas is being produced in France Sweden and Germany with all the burning cars.Not to mention the insurance premiums for firer and theft.Look around the world do you really think it won’t happen here.Then you are a bigger fool than the PM of Canastan

Yes Roy, thanks for the petition link, I did not know about it & have now sent it to many others, hope they sign too.

Unfortunately there are too many anti-M-103 petitions in circulation because we lack coordination as is evident with the 42 Muslim organizations supporting M-103.
TAMMIE PUTINSKI-ZANDBELT, I believe that “Canadians are waking up the fact that Trudeau is pushing an Islamist agenda”. On March 3rd, you had commented, with respect to a David Menzies’ post, “More ‘filthy Jew’ talk caught in Montreal mosque”: “I believe there should be a Motion to address the hate speech practiced in mosques all across the country”. I thought it was a good idea and suggested an e-petition to counter e-411 and M-103. I sent such a proposal to Ezra, Sheila and Faith, but haven’t received a response back.

It is very tough today to express an opinion if you are conservative & because of that, there are many closet conservatives out there, just like I always thought there were in the US & who would vote for Trump. I’m all for well vetted immigrants & refugees & once you’re here, join in & accept our values as your own, otherwise stay where you are & anyone calling me racist, bigot, homophobic, zenophobic or any other phobic crap you can come up with has no inkling of what these terms actually mean. It’s now mainstream for the left to attack anyone with a different perspective on things, but people are slowly waking up to their phony baloney.

No to Multiculturalism, No Diversity is not strength! Trudeau is full of shit!

Roy, thanks for posting the link to this petition, I signed it last week. It was provided in response to another Rebel Report and I think it’s important to keep the link circulating in case some readers missed it.

Brian Lilley,thank you for reporting on the results of the poll. Will the mainstream media to do the same?! I doubt it. Canadians are waking up the fact that Trudeau is pushing an Islamist agenda, today; we are called every name in the book when we speak the truth, we need to keep speaking the truth and demand that our government stop altering the truth.

I am not open and welcoming.

I do not want ANYONE who cannot speak one of the languages, cannot immediately support themselves and is not disease free to be able to enter this country.

Never.

Help them in-situ if you must.

Canada has more than 47,000 people die from drugs EVERY year.

Canada has 850,000 eating out of food banks.

Canadian seniors wonder if they should heat or eat.

Tens of thousands are lined up for subsidized housing.

People die waiting for medical treatment.

Veterans sleep in the streets.

Unemployment combined with rising taxes are causing people to actually lose their homes.

Canada is broke and the left keeps spending. BROKE!!!!

And more – much more.

The illegals and refugees come to Canada.

They go straight to the front of every line and all services are FREE.

They go immediately on welfare and stay there – many times for many years.

The media touts the rare refugee success story and ignores the cost to Canadians of the vast, vast majority who do nothing to make this country better but instead TAKE from the system.

A system they have NEVER contributed to.

And to top it off once the population numbers get high enough they DEMAND we change our ways to suit them – because they find our ways OFFENSIVE.

If that makes me a bad person then you can eff off.

What I am is a realist!

Saw it today on the internet again – Canada is becoming the new Sweden.

Of course, Andrew Coyne, the ultimate Laurentian being the son of a Bank of Canada Governor who actively worked to undermine Diefenbaker, and also the uncle of Baby Doc’s half-sister, has a totally opposing view.

Coyne agrees with the lipid-challenged health minister of Alberta that millions of Canadians are sewer rats.

More than 75% of Canadians polled would not favor Chinese communism for their governing model, but they elected a leader who wants this very system here.
