MIDWEEK SURVEY — SHOULD GOVERNMENT OF CANADA INCREASE IMMIGRANT TARGETS?
DESK REPORT / TORONTO – In this week’s exclusive survey Yudhvir Jaswal,
Group Editor and CEO of YMedia asked the community if the government of Canada
should increase its immigrant targets in the light of the new announcement
made by John McCallum, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship. Conducted on Southasian PULSE Prime Time on Tuesday morning
between 10am to 12 noon, the community remained divided on the issue
saying more immigrants should be invited to give boost to the economic
activity, others said in wake of diminishing jobs and resources more
immigrants would add to the woes of the economy. Yet a third group
thought keeping the target the same would be wiser at this point. The station
received about 44 votes in total with 19 respondents saying immigrant targets
should be enhanced, 12 said they should not, while 13 called for keeping it the
same. YMedia regularly holds weekly polls on various issues that of interest to the
community and publish their results on all five of its media platforms every week.
