A new survey by Angus Reid has found close to half of Canadians view unfavourably Islam and don't support someone wearing Islamic clothing.
According to the survey, only 29 per cent of Canadians supported someone wearing a burka in public and 32 per cent approved of the niqab. Meanwhile, the kippah, Star of David and Crucifix were approved by 85, 87 and 90 per cent of Canadians.
The survey also claims that “Older Canadians, those over the age of 55, hold a more favourable view of both Christianity and Judaism than their younger compatriots, while Millennials hold are more likely to favour Islam, Buddhism, Sikhism and Hinduism than older cohorts.”
However, Quebec's approval of Islam has doubled since 2009 from 15 per cent to 30 per cent.
